Minnesota had an all-around solid performance in a 30-12 blowout of the Chiefs in Kansas City, putting the Vikes in sole possession of the NFC North lead. Matt Cassel threw a 53-yard bomb to Cordarrelle Patterson early in the first quarter and Teddy Bridgewater followed with two […]

Wide Receiver Battle: Smith, Thielen, or Both?

Early in training camp, it looked as though there would be no debate as to who would occupy the 5th wide receiver position. Adam Thielen was the best player in camp for the first two weeks, and his routes were (and still are) a thing of beauty. Rodney Smith, who was considered in the mix […]

Vikings Training Camp: Everything You Missed in the Past 5 Days

I apologize for the lack of posts on Vikings Gab, I’ve been on vacation since Friday. It was pretty painful being unplugged from Vikings news and analysis for so long, but now that I’m back, I thought I’d recap what happened while I was gone. Most importantly, the Vikes won their first preseason game, 10-6 […]

Since cornerback is one of, if not the biggest position competitions in Vikings training camp, I thought I’d do a mid-training camp stock report, to see who has the best chance of making the roster, who has the best chance to start, and who will play where. Xavier Rhodes Stock: Even In my eyes, Xavier […]
