Report: Minnesota Vikings waive K Daniel Carlson, will sign Dan Bailey

Report: Minnesota Vikings waive K Daniel Carlson, will sign Dan Bailey

The rookie kicker missed three field goals yesterday After yesterday’s 29-29 tie with Green Bay, there was a lot of speculation on the fate of first year kicker Daniel Carlson, who was drafted in the first round and beat out Kai Forbath during the preseason. The speculation is over, apparently: The #Vikings have waived kicker Daniel Carlson, source said.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) September 17, 2018 Carlson, who was a little unsteady in preseason, missed three field goals yesterday, including two in overtime. The last one was with just seconds remaining, and it was a 35 yard...

Salary Cap implications for Laquon Treadwell and Daniel Carlson

Salary Cap implications for Laquon Treadwell and Daniel Carlson

A lot of fans would like to see Carlson and Treadwell walk the plank. Is it even financially viable? After the Minnesota Vikings tied the Green Bay Packers 29-29 yesterday, a lot of the post game frustrations were taken out on two players, for the most part: K Daniel Carlson and WR Laquon Treadwell. Carlson missed three field goals, including two in overtime, and the last one was practically a chip shot from 35 yards that would have capped an improbable comeback win. ‘Cut Carlson and Treadwell’, fans are saying this morning. I think they’re misguided and shouldn’t be just...

Stock Market Report: Packers

Stock Market Report: Packers

Well, the Vikings didn’t lose. They didn’t win either. They should have done both. Weird. I honestly don’t know what to make of what happened. It was mostly terrible Vikings football, followed by a glimmer of hope, followed by no hope, followed by an amazing drive, followed by a ‘lol are you kidding me’ drive that ended with Mike Zimmer actually icing a kicker, followed by a got dang miracle miss from a kicker that never misses, culminating in Blair Walsh II: Wide Right This Time. It was a game where the Vikings should have lost, should have won, and at times were their own worst...

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers: Fourth quarter open thread

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers: Fourth quarter open thread

The situation is critical, but not hopeless As we head to the final stanza in Green Bay, the Vikings are trailing the Packers by a score of 20-7. Minnesota’s defense has stiffened a bit, allowing only a field goal, but the Vikings offense can’t get out of their own way. After a nice scoring drive in the first quarter, they haven’t been able to get untracked at all, until recently, and the Vikings also dodged a bullet to keep this game from being completely out of hand. Aaron Rodgers found Jimmy Graham for a touchdown, but the play was nullified by a penalty. Green Bay had to settle...

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers: Third quarter open thread

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers: Third quarter open thread

We’re halfway home at Lambeau Through two quarters in Green Bay, our beloved purple are trailing the hated Green Bay Packers 17—7. After the Vikings tied it up on Laquon Treadwell’s first career TD, Green Bay went down the field, with the Vikings defense providing little resistance. Aaron Rodgers kept the drive alive with a nine yard scramble on third down, and Rodgers found Davante Adams on a nine yard TD pass to end the drive. Towards the end of the quarter, the Vikings finally got something going, but the drive stalled out and Daniel Carlson badly missed a 48 yard field goal. Green...

Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings: Second Quarter Game Thread

Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings: Second Quarter Game Thread

Come join us and talk about the game Through one quarter at Lambeau Field, the Minnesota Vikings are tied with the Green Bay Packers at 7-7. The Packers received the opening kickoff and got to about midfield before their drive stalled and they had to punt, thanks in large part to a Sheldon Richardson sack. The Vikings took over at their own seven, made a first down, then shot themselves in the foot with a penalty and a sack. When the Vikings punted, Matt Wiles’ kick was blocked and recovered by Josh Jackson for a touchdown and a 7-0 Green Bay lead. Minnesota answered though. After a big...

Report: Aaron Rodgers has deep bone bruise and sprained MCL; will wear a brace

Report: Aaron Rodgers has deep bone bruise and sprained MCL; will wear a brace

Jay Glazer reports a status update on the Packers QB A short while ago, Fox insider Jay Glazer reported on their NFL pregame show that Aaron Rodgers has a deep bone bruise and a sprained MCL, and will wear a knee brace against the Minnesota Vikings for today’s game. If fans remember, that’s similar to the injury former Vikings QB Sam Bradford suffered in Minnesota’s opening week victory against the New Orleans Saints last year, and it affected Bradford all season long. After missing two games, Bradford tried to return against the Chicago Bears on a Monday Night game, had almost zero...

Minnesota Vikings Injury Report: Team is healthy heading to Green Bay

Minnesota Vikings Injury Report: Team is healthy heading to Green Bay

There is only one player ruled out for Sunday Through the preseason and one game, the Minnesota Vikings are about as healthy as anyone could expect as they head into their big early season showdown with the Green Bay Packers. Although DE Everson Griffen appeared on the injury report yesterday with a toe, he’ll play. CB Mac Alexander, who missed last week’s opener, and starting CB Trae Waynes, who went out in the second quarter with a knee injury, will also play. As a matter of fact, the only player that won’t suit up is C Pat Elflein, who was officially ruled out: .@elflein65 (out)...

Kirk Cousins is not who you think he is

Kirk Cousins is not who you think he is

Is that wholesome image real? Our crack investigative team has some shocking revelations A few days after Kirk Cousins signed his precedent-setting contract with the Minnesota Vikings, I received a phone call from a number I didn’t recognize. Like any normal person, I didn’t answer it. Because duh who doesn’t screen their phone calls these days, amirite? Yet, the same number called again just a few minutes later, and this time they left a voicemail. When I hit ‘play’, a nervous, almost scared voice was at the other end. “I’m risking a lot by leaving this voicemail, but your...

Got a question for the show? Ask us! Hi kids. Sorry we couldn’t get a show out last week. Ted’s had to go through the hassle of getting a new AOL access number that wasn’t long distance ordering a new modem from AT and T when his other one crapped out...and the new one had issues when it got installed. He thinks it’s fixed, but we’ll see. Anyway, we’re set to record a new episode tonight, assuming technology cooperates. If you’ve got a question for the show, you can ask in a couple ways.

Zim Tzu finds gold in them thar hills

The Vikings warrior poet coach dispenses his words of wisdom ED NOTE: This has bad words. Most of the other things we write on here usually don’t, but this one does. It seems to be a popular bit, so until the law catches up with me, I’m going to keep doing it. Thanks for understanding, and thanks for not reading and not letting your kids read it if bad language isn’t your thing. Hope you enjoy the rest of our articles—Ted When you are a warrior poet, every now and then you’ll encounter a foe that has been on a roll and punching above their weight class. They’re outmanned,...

Report: Injury updates for Trae Waynes; Collins to IR and replacement signed

Report: Injury updates for Trae Waynes; Collins to IR and replacement signed

One guy will practice this week. One guy is out for the year and has already been replaced. In his weekly press conference, Mike Zimmer gave us a bit of an update on the injury front. And...we have good news and bad news. First, the good news: Zimmer said he expects Trae Waynes to practice this week after the cornerback left with a knee injury yesterday.— Ben Goessling (@GoesslingStrib) September 10, 2018 Yay! Both Waynes and nickel CB Mac Alexander missed all or most of yesterday’s game, so getting at least Waynes back this week will help now that it’s Packers week, and Aaron...

With injuries to the secondary, Mike Hughes steps in, and then steps up

With injuries to the secondary, Mike Hughes steps in, and then steps up

The rookie made a heck of a first impression When the Vikings played the San Francisco 49ers yesterday, the secondary began the game a bit short handed. Starting nickel CB Mackensie Alexander was inactive due to an ankle injury, suffered midway through the preseason, so that meant first round pick Mike Hughes would get some extensive action in his first NFL game. Then in the first half, starting LCB Trae Waynes went out with a knee injury and didn’t return. What was a deep secondary was suddenly thin, and Hughes moved outside, playing every snap, and facing one of the most talented young...
