Minnesota Vikings By The Numbers: #15

Few have worn the number. Fewer have had an impact.

As with most of the numbers you find in the teens and single digits, not many players in the history of the Minnesota Vikings have ever worn the number 15. In fact, we have only six. Of those six, only two of those players have had a really measurable impact on the team during their time in purple.

The first, chronologically, is quarterback Gary Cuozzo. Cuozzo was a seasoned veteran by the time he came to Minnesota, having spent four years...

Wednesday Open Thread: August 23, 2017

We trudge onward.....toward Sunday.....toward Vikings football

Merry Wednesday, everyone!

Hey, we're at the peak of the week, it's a downhill slide into the weekend and into the Vikings game against the 49ers. The Vikings play their first home preaseason game of the 2017 season on Sunday. Now that I think about it, it'll also be the first Sunday game of the season, too.........not that it really matters, I guess.

Minnesota Vikings Want A Third String Quarterback This Season

Cue the signing of Mitch Leidner and the competition that will follow with Taylor Heinicke.

In a move that surprised everyone the Minnesota Vikings signed former University of Minnesota quarterback Mitch Leidner. The burning question was obviously “Why?!” But no matter what reasoning we all tried to rationalize, we always ended up with more questions than answers.

Fox Sports talked to offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and head coach Mike Zimmer about their reasoning behind the move....

Will They, Or Won’t They?

The Minnesota Vikings might be on the verge of a breakout. Unless, of course, they aren’t.

Every year about this time, I think I have a pretty decent idea on how the Vikings will be. I’m not saying I’m some sort of Nostradamus, but I have a solid feeling on whether or not the Vikings can compete for the division and go to the playoffs.

This year, I have no clue. Granted, I’ve pretty much meandered through life this way, so it’s not like I’m revealing some ancient prophecy here....

Minnesota Vikings By The Numbers: #16

There’s really only one choice to be had here

In the history of the Minnesota Vikings, only five players have worn the number 16. Of those five, there’s only one that made any sort of a real impact, even though he made his greatest impact a number of years after he left Minnesota.

In the 1987 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots selected a quarterback from the University of Delaware by the name of Rich Gannon. The Patriots wanted to make Gannon a running back, and he didn’t care much...
