Bridgewater Sends Out Warning to Vikings Fans – “We Have a Long Way To Go”

Second year quarterback Teddy Bridgewater wants to temper expectations for the Vikings this upcoming season. Although he is optimistic, he is realistic. “I have high expectations for myself, and this team has high expectations also,” Bridgewater told Tom Pelissero of USA Today “Right now, we’re not as good as what we think,” Bridgewater said. “We […]

Speculation that the Vikings could move their Winter Park headquarters has unsettled some of Eden Prairie’s leaders and created buzz about the future of 100-plus acres of farmland in Chanhassen, Susan Feydor and Kelly Smith of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune report . “People in Chanhassen are asking, ‘Is it happening? Could it happen?’?” said Chanhassen Mayor […]

Vikings Possibly Relocating. . .Their Team Headquarters

No, sorry, Minnesota Vikings haters. . .your stupid "Los Angeles Vikings" pipe dreams are still exactly that. A pipe dream. And also stupid. Rather, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, there is word swirling around that the Vikings could potentially be moving the team headquarters from Eden Prairie to Chanhassen as part of a larger development opportunity. Per the Star-Tribune: A piece of the sprawling Chanhassen site near Hazeltine National Golf Club where the team's headquarters might move already is on a developer's radar for a possible lifestyle center with shops, restaurants,...

Teddy Bridgewater Rated Low In MMQB Quarterback Rankings

We've got some more pre-season analysis for you, and I can't imagine that too many fans of the Minnesota Vikings are going to be too enamored with this latest installment of list-a-mania. Andy Benoit of SI.com's MMQB site has compiled his rankings of the 32 starting quarterbacks going into the season, and young Teddy Bridgewater is. . .well, he's pretty low on the list. Of the 32 starting quarterbacks, he has Bridgewater at #23. Here's what Benoit had to say in his limited commentary about Bridgewater, and it's hard to disagree with what he says. Was tightly managed last season before...

Report: Josh Robinson Suffers Torn Pectoral Muscle

Following his foray into the same-sex marriage debate about a week ago, we openly speculated whether or not cornerback Josh Robinson would even make the Minnesota Vikings' roster, whether his remarks would have anything to do with that or not. As it turns out, it might not be something that either party has to worry about. Ben Goessling of ESPN.com is reporting that Robinson has become the latest victim of the Vikings' injury du jour. . .or de l'année, more accurately. . .that being the torn pectoral muscle. He's the fourth member of the team to suffer the injury in the past ten months,...

Happy Independence Day!

It's the Fourth of July, and for the people that live in the United States of America, that means it's Independence Day. It was on this date in 1776 that commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, stating that the thirteen original American colonies considered themselves to be a separate nation and no longer a part of the British Empire. Hopefully many of you will be taking advantage of today to get together with friends and family and celebrate the birth of what is still, quite frankly, the greatest damn country on the planet. As for us, the posting schedule will...

Antonio Gates Suspended; Will Miss Game Against Vikings

There were a handful of suspensions that were handed down on Thursday afternoon, all related to the National Football League's substance abuse policy. No members of the Minnesota Vikings were on the hit list, but one of the suspensions that was announced will have an effect on the purple. Antonio Gates, the long-time tight end for the San Diego Chargers, will miss the first four games of San Diego's season because of his violation of the policy. That means that, barring some sort of successful appeal, he will miss the game between the Vikings and Chargers that will take place at TCF Bank...

Greenway: Peterson Can Still Win Most Valuable Player Award

After a year away from the National Football League, nobody is quite sure what to expect from Minnesota Vikings' running back Adrian Peterson. Well, nobody with the exception of one of his longest-tenured teammates, that is. Linebacker Chad Greenway, in an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio, made the bold statement that Peterson is quite capable of winning the Most Valuable Quarterback Player Award in the National Football League. It's Adrian. He can do anything. I still tend to lean towards the fact that we've gotten so much preseason publicity is because of our quarterback. Unfortunately...

Vikings Game At Detroit Will Feature LGBT Pride Event

When the Minnesota Vikings travel to Ford Field to take on the Detroit Lions this October, the game will be playing host to the NFL's second-ever LGBT Pride Event. (The first one occurred last year in Tampa Bay at a game between the Buccaneers and the St. Louis Rams.) According to our friends over at OutSports (via the article linked above), here are some of the things that will be a part of the event. Acknowledged as an official LGBT Pride Night. Block of seats in the upper level sideline. Host a party on the roof top of Ford Field. Host a pre-game tailgate with sponsored food and...

Blanton vs Sendejo vs Exum

The Daily Norseman goes back in time to determine what happened with the Vikings strong safety position at the end of last year. And what does the team's handling of the safety position say about the 2015 roster? Awhile back I took a look at safety Robert Blanton and came to the conclusion that he had an underrated season in 2015. Ultimately, I remain optimistic about his chances to grow in only his 2nd year as a starter next to Harrison Smith which would only improve the Vikings young secondary. It was brought to my attention then that many fans think that Blanton performed poorly and...

Help Us To Help The Lead The Way Foundation

Last week, five different blogs centered around the Minnesota Vikings launched a combined campaign to help raise money for Chad Greenway's Lead the Way Foundation, specifically the Chad's Locker program that the Foundation sponsors. Though we're competing with those other sites. . .Vike Fans, Vikings Corner, Vikings Journal, and Vikings Territory. . .to see which blog can raise the most money, we're also attempting to raise as much as possible as a group, with an overall goal of $10,000. The folks from a place called Make Your Name sent us a link to this video featuring the Lead the Way...

30 Day Challenge, Day 30: What Are You Looking Forward To Most In 2015?

We've made it to the end of the 30 Day Challenge, with 30 different topics of discussion over 30 days. Hopefully some of these posts gave folks the opportunity to let their minds work a little bit and give us something to talk about concerning the Minnesota Vikings during what is, generally, the longest and most boring month of the NFL offseason. With the 2015 NFL season just around the corner, it's time we start looking forward to it a little more, and that's where we're going with our final topic. Of all the things there are to look forward to about the Minnesota Vikings' 2015 season,...

The Vikings' Future Is So Bright. . .

Timbuk 3 The Future's So Bright I Gotta Wear... von Celtiemama That song's almost 30 years old. . .which makes it significantly older than most of the Minnesota Vikings' roster. From the vast reaches beyond the great E$PN In$ider paywall, we have another set of rankings to look at as we prepare for the 2015 NFL season. The folks from Bristol have looked at each team in the NFL and given their projections for how well they're set up for not just this season, but for the next three. Much like when Pro Football Focus put out their list of the most talented rosters in the NFL, the Vikings...

Norse Code Podcast Episode 74: Off-season Torture

The offseason is awful, so we talked about things like Battlebots, bad tweets and whether or not Minneapolis is more cursed as a sports town than other cities.

30 Day Challenge, Day 29: Favorite Minnesota Vikings Memory

The finish line is in sight, folks. . .we've had 28 different topics for discussion in this thing over the month of June, and today we have number 29. What is your favorite all-time Minnesota Vikings' memory? Yes, we talked about our earliest memories in another post in the 30 Day Challenge, but this one is for your all-time favorite. As I've missed all of the team's Super Bowl appearances. . .and, let's face it, those aren't exactly happy memories anyway. . .I need to look elsewhere for my favorite memory. The 2004 season was a bit of a strange one for the Vikings. The team got off to...

30 Day Challenge, Day 28: All-Time Favorite Minnesota Vikings Running Back

Only a few days left in the 30 Day Challenge for this month, and we're on the last of our position groups to that need an all-time favorite declared, so let's get to it. Who is your all-time favorite Minnesota Vikings' running back? I'm guessing the choice for most people, from an on-field perspective, is a pretty obvious one. And that choice is Adrian Peterson. When it comes to running the football, there hasn't been a player in the history of the team quite like Peterson. He's got power, he's got speed, he has all of the traits and abilities you want in a running back at the National...

Wilf Family Possibly Back In Major League Soccer Picture?

A little more than three months ago, Major League Soccer announced their decision to expand to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. However, they chose not to work with the Wilf family, rather deciding to go with a group headed by Bill McGuire (the current owner of Minnesota United FC). The group also includes the Pohlad family, which owns the Minnesota Twins, and Minnesota Timberwolves' owner Glen Taylor. The bid submitted by that group was contingent on getting approval for a new soccer-only downtown stadium by 1 July, a condition placed on the deal by Major League Soccer. The group was hoping...

Pete Prisco Releases Annual Overrated and Underrated Lists

As he does every year in the time before camp starts, Pete Prisco of CBS Sports has put together his annual "Overrated" and "Underrated" lists. He took a look at all 32 NFL teams and determined who he thought was the most overrated and underrated player on each roster. For the Minnesota Vikings, he picked a couple of names that might be a bit surprising. . .well, they surprised me, anyway. Let's start with the overrated side, where Prisco went with wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson. Look up the word tease and his name would be next to it. This kid has all the tools, but he was benched...

30 Day Challenge, Day 27: Favorite Minnesota Vikings Offensive Lineman

We're at the 90% point of the 30 Day Challenge, folks, and since I've got a few other things going on today, this one's going to be a quick one. Of all of the offensive linemen that have suited up for the Minnesota Vikings, which one is your all time favorite? My answer hearkens back to one of the earlier posts in this 30 Day Challenge, when I asked which former Minnesota Vikings great you could bring back. I'm going to go with Hall of Famer Randall McDaniel. I sang a lot of his praises and went over his incredibly impressive resume in the earlier post, so I'm not going to rehash...
