Who is the Minnesota Vikings’ Bridewater?

This past offseason for the Minnesota Vikings was certainly one of change. From former head coach Leslie Frazier being let go, along with almost his entire staff, to veteran players like Kevin Williams and Jared Allen freely walking in free agency, there has been a bit of an open, rotating door at Winter Park. As […]

PJD’s Preseason Week 1 Recap: A Defensive Revelation

I mean, let’s not get ahead of ourselves, right? The Vikings defense did give up 182 passing yards, 268 total yards, and 4.4 yards per play to the Raiders offense on Friday night. The Vikings, to counter those numbers and put some of this in perspective, threw for 109 yards, had 236 total yards, and […]

Game Thread: Raiders vs. Vikings, Preseason Game 1

AW YISSSS. FOOTBAWL IS BACK. The Raiders visit Minnesota during a warm period of the year so they don’t feel terrible in the cold for preseason game number one. It’s a rematch of Super Bowl XI, because that’s what everyone is going to say even though it’s actually nothing like that, but here we are. […]

Captain Munnerlyn – “Miracle Baby” – Avoids Another Disaster

Captain Munnerlyn doesn’t officially know if he has a nickname or not. Captain Cum-Back, Captain Money, Captain Crunch, Skipper … All are potential nicknames for the newer Vikings cornerback, but none of them adequately capture the tough circumstances Munnerlyn has found himself throughout his entire life. That’s why he instead goes by “Miracle Baby.” You […]

So Teddy Bridgewater Signed a Sword

What do we call him now? King of the North? Teddy Stabwater? Lord Viking? So, Teddy Bridgewater signed a Vikings’ fans sword. At a Caribou Coffee. In Mankato, Minnesota. And the Caribou Coffee staff and the Minnesota Vikings staff all were cool with it, apparently. Yeah, I don’t know how this story gets any weirder. […]

Saturday Night Scrimmage

Why didn’t I read through last year’s “Family Fun Day” post before agreeing to cover this years? Haha… Actually the night scrimmage is a great chance to see some actual competition between the offense and defense. The crowd was just packed! People wandered looking for seats. Even 30 minutes early I had no chance of […]

OMG, Adrian Peterson Really IS the Wolverine!

Remember when Adrian Peterson first learned about the Wolverine from Matt Kalil in the training room? Peterson learned about Logan’s healing factor, how he can come back from injury like no other and still be as fierce, if not fiercer. Adrian liked that idea so much that he made a custom Vikings “Wolverine” jersey, and […]

You Won’t Believe the REAL Reason The Vikings Traded Percy Harvin

Since he hasn’t actually played in more then two games since being traded from the Minnesota Vikings to the Seattle SuperSeahawks, it’s easy to forget that Percy Harvin is a football player. Usually, a pretty good one, too. But his injury history, drug abuse history, temperamental history, fighting with coaches history, migraine history, and being […]

Vikings Training Camp Access Day 2: Afternoon Session

I was surprised to learn a few short hours before practice started that Sunday afternoon would host the first full-padded practice for the Viking players. This made me even more eager to watch, because the guys seemed to have a spring in their steps having pads on for the first time in training camp. It […]
