Chewing the Cud Week 3.5

After going 5-1 in one score games last year, it seems as if the time has come to pay the piper. Bummer. A common theme in Vikings games this year have been turnovers, both take- and giveaways. Some of the former have been lucky (aka bad decisions by Jay Cutler) while some have been merited. […]

Chewing the Cud Week 1.5

Instead of explaining the purpose and name of this column myself, I shall provide a somewhat graphic link that will be useful for those of you not too familiar with the bovine digestive system. So let’s begin.   Not Overreacting, Just Fan-ing it up The numbers people over at Footballoutsiders.com call Week 1 National Overreaction Sunday. […]

The Bigg Dawg asks Viking fans: Which Rookie makes the biggest difference in 2013?

The Bigg Dawg would really like to hear from as many Viking (or non-Viking fans for that matter) on the subject of just which rookie player will have the most significant impact on the 2013 team.  Will it be Shariff Floyd ? Or Xavier Rhodes? Maybe Cordarrelle Patterson gets the nod.  Or perhaps one of […]

Webb Wobbles As Ponder Sits In Vikings 24-10 Loss In Green Bay To End Season

No Ponder, no chance. Bet you never thought you would read that, but that seemed to be the case Saturday night when the Vikings season ended with a 24-10 loss in Green Bay. Joe Webb filled in for Ponder, and was pretty much as one would expect for a player that didn’t throw a pass […]

Vikings Get to 9-6; Upset Texans 23-6 in Houston

Adrian Peterson didn’t have the type of game he was use to having as of late, but it was his teammates that picked him up Sunday in an upset win over the Texans 23-6. Peterson rushed for 86 yards, falling far short of the 2,000-yard mark, but the Vikings improved to 9-6, and they keep […]

The Case for Bill Musgrave

Message boards are not kind to Bill Musgrave. He is the e-piñata for the Vikings offensive struggles, second in the firing line of frustrated fans, placing just behind Christian “Maybe your wife can teach you how to throw”* Ponder. Is the former Oregon Duck standout really to blame for Team Purple’s offensive blues? Let’s look at […]

Trench Warfare

Anyone who thinks the Vikings have a chance this Sunday at Lambeau must be delusional. One hundred percent certifiable. We all saw how quality teams with quality quarterbacks respond to being whipped  in front of a national audience. Aaron Rodgers will throw for 400 and 4. End of story. Vikings fans who have been teased by early […]

Vikings Beat Up by The Bears in Chicago 28-10

The bad news for the Vikings began when they arrived in the Windy City on Saturday, as they learned the Bears would have the services of starting QB Jay Cutler after all. The way they played on both sides of the ball Sunday, the Bears might as well have had Jim McMahon starting at QB. […]

NFL Week Twelve Preview – Minnesota vs Chicago

With the status of QB Jay Cutler up in the air once again, the Bears 2012 season which had visions of the Super Bowl dancing in their heads is suddenly very much in doubt. Cutler is listed as questionable (50/50) for Sunday’s divisional game vs the Minnesota Vikings at home, and if he can’t play […]
