Vikings at the bye: How's Teddy lookin'?

One-fourth of the way into a season is a relatively convenient time for a bye week, as the Vikings have. It’s also a pretty good opportunity to assess quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in terms of progress made, areas he needs to clean up and overall production. Let’s take a swing through a few things: *His raw “counting” stats — traditional numbers like passing yards, touchdown passes, etc. — won’t wow anybody. He ranks just 26th in the NFL with 774 passing yards and his two TD passes don’t even register in the top 32 of a 32-team league. Even his completion percentage, which...

Honoring the 10-year anniversary of the Vikings' Love Boat scandal

This week marks the 10-year anniversary of a very important event in Minnesota Vikings history (and I say that half-joking and half-serious). It was on Oct. 6, 2005, that several Vikings players embarked on a Lake Minnetonka journey that is now infamously known as the Love Boat Scandal. (Yes, the actual anniversary was yesterday, but the news didn’t break until a few days after it happened, so I consider this a week-long celebration). You can find a lot of details about what allegedly happened or didn’t happen on various parts of the Internet, but in case you are coming to this cold, here...

Spielman on Walsh, Cordarrelle, AP, Bridgewater and more

Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman dropped the news of the Gerald Hodges trade to San Francisco at the outset of his annual bye-week media session with local reporters. He spoke for about half an hour. Here are some of the other highlights: — On whether he would consider bringing in kickers to compete with the struggling Blair Walsh doesn’t improve: “Blair is going through a little bit of a slump here now, but I think there’s no question that he’s our kicker. … Blair is working extremely hard to get through this. We’re doing everything we can with [special teams coordinator...

Vikings trust in Kendricks leads to Hodges trade to 49ers

The 49ers needed a linebacker. The Vikings had depth at the position and trust that rookie Eric Kendricks can step up as a starter. So Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman pulled the trigger today on a trade that sends starting middle linebacker Gerald Hodges to San Francisco for a sixth-round draft pick next year and rookie center Nick Easton. The sixth-rounder replaces the sixth-round pick the team traded to San Diego for backup offensive lineman Jeremiah Sirles. And the opening at middle linebacker clears the way for Kendricks to step forward as the nickel linebacker to a three-down...

Bridgewater likes the foundation Vikings have laid

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is pleased with the groundwork the Vikings have laid throughout the first quarter of the season, despite Sunday’s 23-20 loss at Denver and a .500 record entering their bye week. “I think we laid a solid foundation over the first four games of the season,” Bridgewater said on Tuesday at Winter Park, “we also know that we have a lot of work to continue to do. We’ll get some guys healthy and take advantage of this bye week. “It’s not a bad position to be, .500. … We’d love to be 3-1 or 4-0 right now, but we just want to learn from these first four...
