Vikings Win On The Waiver Wire

It is a rare thing to see a team that finished as well as the Vikings did last year be awarded a player from the waiver wires. None-the-less, the Vikings were awarded wide reciever Marko Mitchell today. Here is what the Vikes had to say about it: We noted earlier today that the Vikings parted […]

Lito Looking North

In the midst of walking my dogs, brewing coffee, and eating my Wheaties I noticed a quick blurb on the NFL Network. Lito Sheppard is visiting the Lions soon, but they also said the Vikings and the Bears could have interest in his services. At age 29, it is unclear what type of market Sheppard […]

Rumors Fly Regarding Taylor

I have long stated that it makes sense for both parties if the Vikings and Chester Taylor separate this offseason. Now, only days before the start of free agency, the rumor mill would lead one to believe that I may get at least one prediction correct. PFT pointed out that Taylor’s jersey has been reduced […]

LIVE BLOG: Lions At Vikings

Well, it was a long bye week, but finally we get to watch some Vikings football again.  The Lions are on the prowl, in what should be a cat walk for the Vikings, but may end up being a mouse trap.  Hop into our live blog below and let us know what you think: Lions […]

Niners Do The Vikings A Solid

Hey everyone!  Sorry for the lack of updates on Thursday.  I had a very, very late night at work.  I will try and catch up tomorrow evening. Just got home, though, and was pleased to see that the Bears lost to the Niners.  That is great news for the Vikings, as they are looking to […]

Winfield Not Practicing

Many of us fans, and especially the Vikings coaches, are hoping for a speedy recovery for the Vikings top cornerback Antoine Winfield. The latest update I can pass along is that Winfield is not practicing on Monday.  I wouldn’t read too much into this, as Winfield still has the possibility to play on Sunday.  I was […]

Vikings Already Control Their Own Destiny

Scary start against the Browns?  No problem. Scary start against the Lions?  No problem. Scary start against our next two opponents, now that could be a problem. Right now the Vikings are the sole leader of the NFC North.  The phrase “control your own destiny” is typically used more in weeks 15 and 16… not […]

Allen Misses Practice Again; Frerotte Also Sits

As the Vikings get set for the Cardinals this Sunday, they could be without one of their key playmakers on defense, as DE Jared Allen missed his second straight day of practice on Thursday with a knee injury. The Star Tribune is reporting that Allen and the team are not saying what is wrong with […]

Vikings Outlast Lions in Detroit 20-16

It looked as if the Lions had a chance to win their first game of the season, but in the end it was the Vikings who came up with the key plays down the stretch. The Lions are so bad that even when they forced two turnovers, and Adrian Peterson has ball security issues, they […]

Longwell’s FG Bails Out Vikings in 12-10 Win Over Lions

The Minnesota Vikings played all their cards right in New Orleans on Monday night, pulling out a wild 30-27 win. Today at home vs the lowly Lions, the team needed all they get and more just to pull out a 12-10 win. Breathing a sigh of relief after Ryan Longwell’s game-winning kick from 26 yards […]
