Minnesota Vikings Hand The New York Giants First Win Of The Season

The Minnesota Vikings put forth another poor showing. Even the players that provided the highlights also provided lowlights. The offense never got into a rhythm. The best Vikings defense was the Giants offense at times.

Uninspired And Effortless Vikings Lose To Carolina

The Minnesota Vikings showed very little effort in a blow out loss to the Carolina Panthers. The offense failed to move the ball as efficiently as it did in its previous game. Matt Cassel was unable to maintain the spark he had in London. The defense was shredded from beginning to end. The special teams units barely got a chance to show anything.

Rudolph’s Blocking Just As Important As Receiving

Kyle Rudolph has some of the surest hands in the NFL, with a 6-foot-6, 260-pound frame fit for the type of tight end who can be one of his team’s best passing targets. As long as he plays for the Minnesota Vikings, though, his potential is probably not on track to become the next Tony Gonzalez. No matter how much ability Rudolph has as a receiver, run blocking must be an equally important part of his skill set. “There aren’t very many guys in our game anymore who are doing the run blocking and the pass catching,” Rudolph said.

The Minnesota Vikings are in off-season mode or a few more weeks, so it’s a good time to catch up with Kyle Rudolph, a tight end who’s blossoming before our eyes. Rudolph’s becoming a favorite target of Christian Ponder, and a player who looks like the future is bright. He’s also coming in to training camp with the confidence of a veteran.
