Dennis Green: A Vikings Retrospective

Looking a little more in depth at Denny's time in Minnesota As you've probably heard, former head coach Denny Green passed away overnight at his home in Arizona. I'd like to take a bit of a longer look at Green's accomplishments in Minnesota, take a bit of a walk down memory lane, hopefully put his career in perspective, and reflect on how good it really was. It's important to look at Green's hiring in the context of the time. When he was hired, he was not only the first African American head coach in team history, but only the second in modern NFL history, behind Art Shell of the Raiders....

It’s time to get back to our schedule preview series for the Minnesota Vikings’ 2015 season.

Vikings Sixth-Round Pick German WR Bohringer Facing Long Road to Making Team

Vikings sixth-round wide receiver Moritz Bohringer is on the “outside looking in” for a final roster spot according to Andrew Krammer of ESPN 1500 Twin Cities. Bohringer was one of the best and most entertaining stories of the entire draft. The 23-year-old played for four years in his native Germany but has zero college football […]

Minnesota Vikings Single-Game Tickets Go On Sale Wednesday

There are many that have asked via social media over the past few weeks when, exactly, single-game tickets for the Minnesota Vikings' inaugural season at U.S. Bank Stadium would be going on sale.

Talking Vikings With Chicago Bears Review

My apologies for my scarcity the past couple of days. I'm back on the proper side of the Atlantic for some training and the jet lag has been kicking me in the face the past couple of days. But, I think I'm good to go here now, so let me bring you this. On Saturday, I got the opportunity to sit down with our friend Larry D of Chicago Bears Review and talk about our favorite football team, the Minnesota Vikings. It was a pretty enjoyable interview, as it generally is when we get a chance to talk with Larry. We took a look back at last season. . .yes, because we had to. . .and took a bit of a...

DN’s Absolutely Unofficial Training Camp Guide

Navigate Vikings Training Camp like a pro. Are you bored? I'm bored. Every year it feels like the NFL offseason gets longer. I'm so football starved that when Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater made his appearance on Family Feud I found myself cheering way too much for, well, everything because it was just fun to be able to shout, "Yeah, Teddy!" But we're in that final stretch before Minnesota Vikings Training Camp at Minnsota State University, Mankato. Thank goodness, because, barring arrests and charity appearances, we have no more vaguely football action to tide us over. If...

Minnesota Vikings 2016 Schedule Previews: Washington Redskins

To kick off the second half of their 2016 schedule, the Minnesota Vikings will take to the road to face another team that made the playoffs in 2015, that being the Washington Redskins. Washington survived the demolition derby that was the NFC East in 2015, riding a surprising season from Kirk Cousins to the post-season. Have they done enough to repeat on that front in 2016? Our friends from Hogs Haven have put together this preview of their team for us to take a look at. They haven’t posted their preview piece on the Vikings yet, so keep an eye out for when that happens. Date and Time of...

Jared Allen Told Brett Favre To Stay Retired In 2010

We all remember the story from the 2010 offseason about how Steve Hutchinson, Ryan Longwell, and Jared Allen all went down to Hattiesburg, Mississippi to try to convince quarterback Brett Favre to return to the Minnesota Vikings for one more run. Now, with Favre scheduled to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame here in a few weeks, we've gotten another story about that trip. As it turns out, only two of those three players were trying to convince Favre to return. While Hutchinson and Longwell were trying to talk him into coming back, Allen was attempting to convince Favre to stay...

How You Can Contribute To The Daily Norseman

Over the past few weeks, we've gotten several inquiries asking from folks asking about how they can write for the best Minnesota Vikings team blog the interwebs have to offer. (Yeah, I mean us.) On that front, I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that we are not, at the present time, actively looking to add any more front page contributors to The Daily Norseman. The good news? You can still contribute to a site that gets a whole lot of traffic and get a whole lot of eyes on your writing! Better still, it's really easy to do. The first thing you have to do is create an...

Vikings, Chelsea Take Part In "Football vs Football" Challenge

Big thanks to our SB Nation blog for all things Chelsea, We Ain't Got No History, for getting this one first.

In order to get into the spirit of things, the Vikings and Chelsea took part in a "football vs football" competition of sorts, and they got it all on video. Things got underway with Stefon Diggs challenging Chelsea players to make one-handed catches....

Minnesota Vikings 2016 Schedule Previews: Chicago Bears

Yesterday, I mistakenly said that after the bye week the Minnesota Vikings had two consecutive road games against NFC East opponents. I was half right. . .while they do have two straight home games, after their trip to Philadelphia, the Vikings will play their third prime time game of the year when they travel to the Windy City to take on the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. Last season, the Vikings managed to sweep the Bears and broke a seven-year losing streak at their personal house of horrors in the process. This year’s game in Chicago will take place on Halloween night, which may or...
