  1. It Was 25 Years ago Today.......

    .....When I sat down to watch the UK's weekly NFL TV show. Now I had been a fan of the sport for about a year but I still didn't support any individual team. Anyway the featured game in this particular week was the Vikings at the Redskins, which had actually taken place the week before but we only got a highlights package of the games a week after. The game certainly didn't lack offence, over 1000 yards between the two teams and as the game went into overtime tied 38 - 38 I found myself cheering ...
  2. Where Is Joe Webb?

    When the Vikings drafted Joe Webb out of the University of Alabama-Birmingham in 2010, he was a 6"4" amazing athlete with lots of potential. A quarterback in college, the Vikings originally drafted him to play WR in the NFL, but after seeing his potential in training camp, they decided to keep him at QB. Seemed like a smart move at the time.

  4. Is Another Win In The Cards Against The Bears?

    After a relatively easy win last week at home against Arizona for their first win of the 2011 season, the Vikings head to the Windy City to take on the rival Bears for a Sunday night game on ESPN. The Vikings haven't had a lot of success there lately, having lost 9 of the last 10 in Chicago (the lone win coming on Oct. 14th, 2007, in a 34-31 Minnesota win). This is the only time the Vikings will be on national TV this season, so I imagine they'll want to make a good showing.

    The Vikings did it to themselves a third time. They had another good team on the ropes at halftime, and let it slip away again. This time, it was the perennial whipping-boys, the Detroit Lions winning 26-23. This one was worse that the first two games because a) it was the Detroit Lions; b) it was a twenty-point lead at halftime (20-0 Minnesota) and c) the Vikings had thoroughly outplayed the Lions in every aspect of the game in the first half.

    Here are some of the first-half stats: ...
