Bridgewater Making Himself at Home Already?

Teddy Bridgerwater has officially been a Minnesota Viking for just under two months, but it’s already been clear that the young quarterback has made an impact. Not just on the team, either. Sure, he’s been stellar in rookie mini-camps and the Vikings’ spring Organized Team Activities, but the on-field impact is just touching the surface. […]

Biz Markie Raps “Nobody Beats the Vikes”

Is that Biz Markie in a Daunte Culpepper jersey?! You bet your ass! While the lyrics over the image indicate this is from his chorus guest appearance on a Jay-Z song, it’s a lot more fun to imagine him singing a Vikings song to the tune of “Nobody Beats the Biz” … [Verse 1] Yes, […]

Did Kevin Williams Die in the Vikings Eyes?

Literally the day I posted an article about how the Minnesota Vikings had reached out to their former defensive tackle, Kevin Williams, to possibly re-sign with them, he pretty much announced he was going to sign with the Seattle Seahawks instead. And I ended up looking like a dog’s butthole. However, what’s worse; looking like […]

Purple People Apparel: F*ck The P*ckers Shirt

Rarely do we feature an apparel item worth the consideration to purchase, but in this case, we might have to make an exception. This splendid “F*ck the P*ckers” shirt, posted to Reddit from a sweet Vikings bro, is sure to be a hot seller this fall, once the Vikings prove they may actually be good […]

Want to Stop Chicago Killings? Put a Bears Game On.

I’ll be honest here. I’m not quite sure how to interpret this recent Yahoo! Sports headline: “Chicago crime goes down during Bears games” OK. So, at face value, when the Chicago Bears play football games, there is less crime in the city of Chicago. That’s fairly significant, since – referencing a 2013 study – Chicago […]

If Ponder Played Shirtless, He Wouldn’t Be in This Situation

No one can make accusations that Minnesota Vikings fourth year quarterback, Christian Ponder, is delusional. And now, he vows to no longer play shirted. Ever since rookie mini-camps and Organized Team Activities began this past month, the team has been pushing the idea that Ponder is competing for the starting job alongside veteran incumbent Matt […]


Do The Minnesota Vikings Hate Old People?

Former Minnesota Vikings great defensive tackle, Kevin Williams, made some radio rounds this week when he appeared on Sirius CM’s NFL Channel Tuesday. The former stalwart in the middle of the Vikings defense has yet to find a new home for himself after the new Mike Zimmer-led coaching staff let him go heading into the […]

More Science Numbers Prove Aaron Rodgers Just Ain’t That Clutch

Be honest with me here. When the Green Bay Packers play the Minnesota Vikings, and – let’s say – the Vikings amazingly have a lead heading into the final two minutes of the game, how comfortable do you feel? I mean, sure, the Vikings might be driving, might even be eating the clock with some […]


Lions Sick of Being Made Fun of, Sign RoboCop to Team

Well, I certainly didn’t PLAN for this week to turn into a Detroit Lions bash-fest, it just kind of happened that way. I mean, this is the long haul of the off-season, and what better entertainment is there than to make fun of the stupidest franchise in your division? I mean, outside of the Packers, […]
