Frank Walker Expected To Join Defense

With Cedric Griffin tearing his ACL and once again starting down the long road to recovery, the Vikings needed to find some immediate help at the cornerback position. Apparently they knew who they wanted.  Frank Walker. The seven year veteran last played with the Baltimore Ravens. (UPDATE:  It is official.  Walker is a Viking.  It […]

Griffin Out For The Season

I hate to bring you the sad news so shortly after a sad game, but someone has to. Judd Zulgad of Access Vikings reports that Vikings starting cornerback has suffered a torn ACL and will miss the rest of this season. After making a surprisingly quick recovery from a torn ACL on his other knee […]

Griffin Suffers Significant Knee Injury

The Vikings didn’’t escape Monday’s loss to the Jets without a few injuries. Brian Robison was carted off the field after injuring his ankle half way through the second quarter.  He was wearing pads when he returned to the sideline, but did not see any more playing time. Ray Edwards and Percy Harvin each limped […]

INACTIVES: Secondary Gets Help

The Vikings secondary will get a big boost as they prepare to face Megatron and the rest of this newly improved Lions offense.  Both Cedric Griffin and Chris Cook are active for today’s game. Safety Tyrell Johnson, linebacker Erin Henderson, Joe Webb (third quarterback), running back Albert Young, center Jon Cooper, defensive tackle Fred Evans, […]

Today’s Inactives, Griffin Is Out

Minnesota’s Inactives: Joe Webb, Chris Cook, Chris DeGeare, Toby Gerhart, Cedric Griffin, Jimmy Kennedy, Mickey Shuler, and Everson Griffen.  Asher Allen, John Sullivan and Husain Abdullah are expected to start at their respective positions. My first thought?  Why in the name of Thor is DeGeare inactive? New Orleans’ Inactives:  Chris Ivory, Chris Reis, Stanley Arnoux, […]

Defensive Position Battles: You Decide

I like doing polls.  One of our previous poll softwares, however, was discovered to be the cause of some unwanted redirection to some Canadian Viagra website for our faithful readers (people who create those types of bugs should be put in a pit with a well-armed Jared Allen).  So, I was forced to use a […]

Injury Updates: Rice, Griffin, And Henderson

Sidney Rice is beginning training camp on the PUP list, which is an obvious disappointment to Vikings fans hoping to see him repeat the production that landed him on the Pro Bowl last season. Rice apparently was told he should have had surgery on his hip, but that it was absolutely needed. “Couple of guys […]

WEEKEND CONVERSATION: Getting Down To 53 Is Tough

Well, I thought it would make for some fun weekend chatter in these parts if I put together my very, very, very early prediction of how the Vikings 53-man roster is going to shake out.  The only really important thing to point out is that I did not include E.J. Henderson and Cedric Griffin, as […]

Some Fun for the Weekend

Just thought I throw this little clip out there for a weekend “pick-me-up”. It is a clip that is all about our D! A few things to look for: Asher Allen made a ton of plays in the very limited time he had last year. Leber, Allen, and Griffin are in on almost every play. […]

Welcome To The Big Show: Chris Cook

[EDITOR’S NOTE:  Over the next few weeks, we will be unveiling some in-depth articles that allow you to better know the newest Vikings draft class and undrafted free agents.  These articles are not intended to be “fluff pieces” like you will find elsewhere, but rather a comprehensive look at each of them as a person […]
