Week 1 Preview: Vikings at Detroit Lions

After months and months of anticipation, the 2013 NFL season is here! The preseason this year left a lot of Vikings fans uneasy, but rightfully so — the Vikings first-team offense looked mediocre at best, and consistently inconsistent most of the time. But then again, what does preseason mean, really? If you’ll recall, the […]

Zulgad: Forget passing woes, Vikings' real issue might be in secondary

No matter how feeble the Minnesota Vikings’ first-team offense looked at times this preseason, the reality is that things won’t be that bad come the Sept. 8 regular-season opener in Detroit.

Why? It’s simple.

Adrian Peterson was on the field for only two snaps in games that didn’t matter. When the Vikings face the […]

Notebook: Same problems, different preseason game for Vikings

Only the first play of the Minnesota Vikings’ 34-14 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday gave fans a glimpse at what the first-team, fully loaded, offense should look like this season.

Zulgad: Seeing something, anything, from passing game would be nice

There has been great debate in recent days on the “Judd & Dubay” show on 1500 ESPN about the importance of the performances during the NFL’s preseason.

My radio partner, Jeff Dubay, refuses to get worked up about the fact that Christian Ponder and the Vikings’ first-team offense have been, to put it kindly, underwhelming […]

Desmond Bishop likely to see snaps with first-team defense vs. 49ers

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Desmond Bishop’s proving ground has moved from Mankato to the practice facilities at Winter Park, but he could very well earn a starting job when the Minnesota Vikings travel to San Francisco.

Bishop, who returned from a groin injury last week, will likely see his first playing time with the Minnesota […]

Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier

We had another good day here at Winter Park. The weather has been terrific throughout this week. I think it really helped us in our preparation. We had a good week of practice. Today was our first time doing a Friday in-season type practice and the […]

Greg Jennings: Goal vs 49ers is to ‘not look like we did last week’

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Minnesota Vikings receiver Greg Jennings was asked another comparison question between his new team, and the old one in the Green Bay Packers.
