Update Time!

Good Afternoon!

As some of you know I had a Zoom meeting with one of the Coral developers to discuss all of the concerns we have at The Daily Norseman about Coral.

First, I have to say thank you to Sam for taking the time to meet with me and listen to our complaints and possible solutions, the meeting was originally scheduled for thirty minutes but we extended it to an hour.

If you’re wondering I did ask if we could have Chorus back and was...

A few changes and some new names

Well, so much for getting this bad boy up earlier on Saturdays, eh?

Yes, after a significant delay, we’re finally here with Version 2.0 of your 2021 Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Database, in which we attempt to get a handle on what the purple might be doing when we get to this year’s NFL Draft.

In last week’s Database, we saw the defensive linemen dominate things in the early going, and we’ve got...

Weekend Open Thread

Good Morning!

I mentioned in the comments yesterday mrs_rob received her second Covid vaccine, neither of us had any significant side effects to either dose; for those of you wondering I received the Moderna version and mrs_rob got the Pfizer. I recommend you get the vaccine when it’s available where you live....and if this triggers the anti-vaccination crowd too bad. Not much in the way of news right now as we crawl towards free...

Yardbarker: Minnesota Vikings

Is Kirk Cousins the answer for the Vikings?

Kirk Cousins isn’t the problem for the Vikings. At the same time, I’m not sure if he’s the solution either. If there’s any concerns about his “clutch”-ness, you can put those to bed.

Are you willing to gamble on Kirk Cousins being traded?

Because you could cash in if you’re right

Ever since the 2020 NFL season ended for the Minnesota Vikings, the speculation. . .if you can call it that. . .has been swirling that the purple might be interested in trading their quarterback, Kirk Cousins. If you firmly believe that the Vikings do want to deal Cousins away, and you’re willing to put your money where your mouth is, you could wind up profiting from it.

Our friends from BetOnline.ag have provided...

Weekend Eve Open Thread

Good Morning!

I’m working on the Coral post today, if I can get it all typed up by 1pm I’ll post it to the front page, if not Monday will be the day; get your torches and pitchforks ready. I posted an article link from NFL.com yesterday that the trade market for Marcus Mariota has dried up but as the universe must have balance, the Russell Wilson trade news is heating up with no movement by the Texans with Deshaun Watson. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news...

Current, former Vikings help Minnesota high school get new weight room

A good news story

My apologies for things being a bit slow around here over the past few days. Real life has decided to kick yours truly in the backside a few times and. . .well, this just isn’t a whole lot going on right now. But, we do have a good news story that involves several former and current members of the Minnesota Vikings to share with you.

Wow, we’re cruising through this off-season at a sloth-like pace.

Merry Hump Day, everyone!

Hey, is it just me, or is this off-season moving even slower than the normal off-season? Man, it seems like the Super Bowl ended a couple months ago. Well, baby steps will help us get through this, so for now, let’s focus on surviving the work week so we can get to the weekend. Anyone have plans for the weekend? Kiddo and I have a weekend of ice fishing planned, we’ll squeeze in some sleep here...

Tuesday Open Thread: February 23, 2021

Ugh, it’s only Tuesday?

Merry Tuesday, everyone!

This period of the year is my least favorite part of the year, I call it sports purgatory. Football has ended, baseball hasn’t started yet, and the only real sport being played is hockey. For some of you, hockey fills the void. For me, although I’m from North Dakota, I’m not a huge hockey fan, so the hockey season doesn’t do a lot for me. I’ll watch a game here and there, and I’ve become a fan of the Wild (and the Bruins, because...

Here’s an impressive stat from the past five years for the Vikings

It’s pretty hard to believe

Over the weekend, our friends over at Vikings Territory found what I think is a pretty impressive stat, and one that I think needs to be shared with a greater audience. So, in the event that you didn’t see it there, you can see it here.

Throughout their history, the Minnesota Vikings are a team that has gotten a reputation for falling apart at the worst possible time. . .and, for the most part, it’s pretty well-earned....

We don’t comprehend the level of greatness we witness until many years later.

One year from today will be 2-22-22. What does that mean? Absolutely nothing.

Happy Monday, everyone!

Kiddo and I got out for our first ice fishing trip of the year yesterday, and it felt great to get out on the ice. In a normal year, we’d have been getting out on the ice for the past couple months, but the winter has been abnormaly warm here (up until the 10-day Antarctic invasion that moved in 2 weeks ago and...

Dalvin Cook becomes part-owner of team in new Fan Controlled Football league

This should be interesting

Over the past couple of seasons, Minnesota Vikings’ running back Dalvin Cook has proven himself to be among the game’s most dynamic offensive players. Now, with the season over, he’s still got plenty of football on the schedule, but now he’ll be looking at things from a different perspective.

A couple of days ago, the news broke that Cook had become a part-owner of a team in the brand new Fan Controlled Football league....

McCardell compares Jefferson/Thielen to great Jaguars combo

Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images

And he would know

New Minnesota Vikings’ wide receivers coach Keenan McCardell has seen some pretty great receivers in his time as an NFL player and coach. He’s coached a lot of them during his time as a coach and, you know, he was one himself during his NFL career.

But McCardell has compared two of his newest charges, Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen, to one of the most dominant wide receiver pairings of the late 90s and early 2000s. That combo is the...
