Minnesota desperately needed some help at the Offensive Line and many assumed they would be taking one in the first round, so Luckily with the…
Minnesota has had an interesting offseason, to say the least. They have traded or lost many of their veteran starters and didn’t acquire much veteran…
There are many things in question when it comes to the Minnesota Vikings 2020 offseason. Is Diggs leaving? Is Everson Griffen leaving? Are they able to keep Waynes? What about Linval Joseph? Those are just a few of the questions. Minnesota has a cap space problem and are looking to make room which will see some of our loved, and not so loved players leaving this offseason. That is the NFL. Now I think Minnesota has some great plans for the offseason and they have already made some good moves by repositioning Gary Kubiak to Offensive Coordinator and now the hire of Dom Capers as the defensive assistant. Let’s get into it!
There hasn’t been much happening with the Minnesota Vikings offseason just yet. They lost OC Kevin Stefanski to the Cleveland Browns and promoted Head Coach Assistant Gary Kubiak to the OC job. Besides that, there hasn’t been much change, but that doesn’t mean big changes aren’t on its way. There is much Speculation in Minnesota this offseason.
There are many questions for the Minnesota Vikings heading into the off season. Probably the biggest one was answered today. We will get into that in a bit. Some of the biggest questions are, should they take a QB in the draft? How will they improve their O line? What will happen to Griffen and Rhodes? How did Rhodes make the Pro Bowl? Just joking on the last one, but seriously how? He was the eighth worst CB in the league! The Pro Bowl just doesn’t make sense sometimes.
What a game the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints put on for us last Sunday. The Vikings played like I haven’t seen in a long time. It seemed like all the stars had finally aligned for Minnesota and they took advantage of it. Yes, they made a few mistakes, but in the long run, they made more winning plays then not, and that is why Minnesota came out on top in the 26-20 Win in overtime.
What a crazy year it has been for Vikings fans. Minnesota started the year off hot with a beat down on the Falcons and followed it up with a few bad weeks against Green Bay and Chicago. In those weeks, Minnesota was talked as one of the biggest pretenders and the playoffs looked as far as could be. Now here they are, a 10-6 record, which could have been easily 11-5, and in the playoffs. I really didn’t know if this would be possible after the week 4 loss to the Bears. They take on the Saints Sunday and are looking to hold off a Saints revenge, as the last time they met in the playoffs, the famous Minneapolis Miracle was born when Diggs took a last second pass from Case Keenum and took it to the house to pull an upset over Saints. Can Minnesota pull of another win?
It has been a tough week for Minnesota fans. The Vikings dropped to 10-5 on the season with a loss to Green Bay. The game didn’t mean much as the Vikings already clinched a playoff spot, but losing to a Rival, in your own home, is not something we are used to. That was Aaron Rodgers first win in US Bank Stadium. We lost some key players and Minnesota’s offense just couldn’t do anything. The final game of the regular season is against our second biggest rival in the Monsters of the Midway. Chicago will be coming to Minnesota on Sunday and are only playing for pride at this time. Since the Vikings can’t get a better playoff spots, now would be a good time to rest some starters.
It’s a bitter sweet week for us Vikings fans. We are fresh off a win, that we should be proud of but sadly we have to go 2 weeks without Vikings football. I believe it will be beneficial for the team as (hopefully) some of our players can heal up nicely. I know I definitely want Harrison Smith, Linval Joseph, and Adam Thielen back for their next game against Seattle.
