Vikings Off-Season Offense Evaluation

Part two of the Vikings off-season evaluation- a lot different than part one. If part one of the Vikings off-season evaluation represented the good news, then part two- the offense- represents the bad news.  Despite having a new and promising QB, new coaching, the return of Adrian Peterson, the emergence of Stefon Diggs... the Vikings offense has shown little improvement from the Christian Ponder era. Offensive Evaluation The Vikings offense, particularly passing, did not have much to write home about this season, in terms of league rankings: 16th in the league in points per game 29th...

Vikings Defense Off-Season Evaluation

The Vikings have at least started their off-season evaluations, and may have completed them too, as some coaching changes at least seem to be in the works. Let's take our own look at the Vikings following a very promising season, and how to make this team better prepared for a deep playoff run next season. First of two parts. Unlike past off-seasons going back, well, to the 20th century more or less, there are not major questions at key positions, whether on the field, head coach, or GM, or ownership, and they all get along pretty well it seems.  The team is not in salary-cap hell, nor...

Minnesota Vikings To Interview Pat Shurmur

With the departure of running backs coach Kirby Wilson to the Cleveland Browns, the Minnesota Vikings have a vacancy on their coaching staff.

Shurmur's calling card over the...
