Just What The Doctor Ordered

I know Vikings.com is often just a bunch of fluff pieces.  I mean, it’s obvious that the Vikes won’t want to release a video featuring Adrian fumbling, T-Jack doing a no look jump pass to a ghost, and Benny Sapp getting burned three times in a row.  It just wouldn’t make sense for them to […]

Training Camp: The Battles To Watch

While we fully intend to take an in-depth look at the battle for every single roster spot during the Vikings training camp, here is a brief preview of each battle that could prove to be a little extra interesting. 1.  QUARTERBACK:  Supposedly Brett Favre is out of the picture, and Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson […]
