Trade Deadline Comes And Goes

The NFL trade deadline came and went on Tuesday and the Vikings (like every other team, essentially) were uninvolved. Some people wondered about the status of guys like Logan Mankins of the Patriots, Vincent Jackson of the Chargers, and Marion Barber of the Cowboys.  I even pondered the possibility of Jimmy Kennedy being traded from […]

What Is Up With The Defensive Line?

The Vikings defensive line is normally thought of as one of the best in the league, but so far this season they are ranked 14th against the run and are tied for 28th in the league with only six sacks.  The sack stat might be a little skewed because the Vikings are one of the […]

The Injury Bug Bites Another Vike

Early word after the preseason game on Saturday was that rookie cornerback Chris Cook’s injury was not serious.  Apparently that isn’t entirely true.

The Bills have a gaping hole at defensive tackle and it would not be a surprise to see them overpay to acquire Kennedy.

Vikings Allow Four To Walk?

Well, we are now about an hour into free agency and it seems that, despite numerous statements that the Vikings wanted all of their unrestricted free agents back, they were only 20% successful on the front. They only re-signed receiver Greg Lewis. Chester Taylor, Jimmy Kennedy, Benny Sapp, and Artis Hicks all appear to be […]
