Minneapolis, MN – The bitter taste of defeat. It’s an all too familiar taste here in Minnesota, especially when the Vikings play against the Bears at Soldier Field. Sunday afternoon saw the Vikings drop their 11th of their last 12 games in Chicago. […]

Leslie Frazier never thought to bench Christian Ponder

By Wesseling, Chris

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder reportedly entered Sunday’s 31-30 loss to the Chicago Bears with a “much shorter leash” than anyone realizes.

After Ponder’s first four series versus the Bears produced three punts and a pick six, his trio of second-half scoring drives kept Vikings coach Leslie Frazier off his back.

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 […]

For Vikings’ ‘Bubble’ Players, Great Special Teams Play Crucial

By Cole Premo

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — With so many Minnesota Vikings players on the bubble, it’s not head coach Leslie Frazier they need to impress most to make the team. It’s also not the offensive or defensive coordinator — or even the guy that coaches the position they play. It’s special teams coach […]

Adrian Peterson ‘itching’ to play in preseason, gets his wish Sunday

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — If the decision were left up to Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, the reigning NFL MVP would have played in the second preseason game at Buffalo Bills and would play the entire first half against the San Francsico 49ers.

Since it’s not up to Peterson, he will likely play a […]
