Highlights as Favre, Dungy share the stage as part of the Hall of Fame's Class of 2016

Brett Favre and Tony Dungy got to share the stage tonight as reporters interviewed the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2016 in San Francisco, site of Sunday’s Super Bowl 50. After a nod to all the great players who helped get him selected as a coach of the Buccaneers and Colts, Dungy then made a crack about Favre also having an impact on the timing of Dungy’s selection. “I might have gotten here two or three years earlier if not for him,” said Dungy, who faced Favre twice a year as Vikings defensive coordinator before getting the Bucs head coaching job. Here are some other...

Vikings' owner Mark Wilf: 'We're on to next year'

Twenty-six days after the sucker-punch finish to his team’s season, Vikings owner and President Mark Wilf was channeling his inner Bill Belichick when he declared “we’re on to next season” during a press conference inside the Super Bowl 50 media center in San Francisco. “You never forget the tough losses,” Wilf said when asked how long it took ownership to get over Blair Walsh missing the 27-yard field goal with 22 seconds left in the 10-9 wild-card playoff loss to Seattle at TCF Bank Stadium. “They’re very hard to take, but I think time heals things and the NFL is a 365...

Former Vikings assistants Pagac, Woods helping Denver's top-ranked Super Bowl defense

Denver’s top-ranked defense reached Super Bowl 50 based on its ability to rush and cover in coordinator Wade Phillips’ aggressive 3-4 scheme. Helping Phillips teach that scheme in the first season of his second stint in Denver were two former Vikings assistants who now fill similar roles in the rush and cover departments with the Broncos. Joe Woods and Fred Pagac were with the Vikings from the time Brad Childress was hired in 2006 to when Leslie Frazier was fired after the 2013 season. Woods was the defensive backs coach, which is the same role he fills in Denver. Pagac spent most of his...

Ryan Kalil gets Broncos scouting report from younger brother Matt

The Kalils aren’t quite as famous as the Mannings, but brothers Ryan and Matt do plan to follow Peyton and Ely’s lead and spend some time hanging out together at the Super Bowl. Just don’t expect any in-game television shots of Matt sitting in a luxury suite high atop Levi’s Stadium in Sunday’s Super Bowl 50. “We don’t have money like the Mannings, so Matt probably won’t be in a box,” joked Ryan, the Panthers’ starting center. “He’ll just have his comp ticket he gets from the Vikings. If he needs more, he’s getting his own tickets. I’m not getting him any tickets....

Vikings' Robert Smith retired much like Calvin Johnson reportedly will

The most natural comparison to make in the story of Calvin Johnson — who reportedly told Lions teammates before the 2015 season that he planned to retire at the end of the year — is of course to fellow Detroit star Barry Sanders. Sanders retired abruptly shortly after turning 31, an age Johnson will reach in September. Both were removed from their peak years when they retired — though not by much — and were still very productive. And just as Sanders’ retirement left a void for the Lions both on and off the field, so too would Johnson if he indeed calls it quits. My first instinct...
