Minnesota Vikings Power Rankings Roundup: Week 12

How much has changed for the purple? Not much

I was pretty interested to see what was going to happen to the Minnesota Vikings in our Power Rankings Roundup for this week. Yes, they won in thrilling fashion, taking down the Denver Broncos by a score of 27-23 after one of the biggest comebacks in team history. But the Broncos, at least on paper, were a team the Vikings should have beaten handily. . .or, at least, that’s what the double-digit spread...

Are the Vikings in danger of getting flexed OUT of prime time?

David Berding-USA TODAY Sports

It could happen

Of the five remainings games on the Minnesota Vikings’ schedule, three of them are currently set to be prime time contests. They have two matchups on Monday Night Football, as they’ll take on the Seattle Seahawks in Week 13 in Seattle and the Green Bay Packers in Week 16 at U.S. Bank Stadium. They also have a Sunday Night Football date with the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 15, their final road game of the 2019 season.

Now, the two Monday...

Daily Norseman FanPulse: The pulse remains the same

David Berding-USA TODAY Sports

With apologies to Led Zeppelin

We’ve just gotten the results of our latest Daily Norseman FanPulse poll as we power our way through the bye week, and things haven’t changed in the eyes of Minnesota Vikings fans despite Sunday’s thrilling victory.

No, seriously, they haven’t changed even a little bit.

Going into last week’s game, 71% of our respondents said that they were confident in the direction that the Vikings were heading in. After...

Kirk Cousins Quietly Having His Best Season - and Perhaps NFL Best This Year Too

Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty Images

When sports writers pull the file on Kirk Cousins, the same narrative is written: He’s okay statistically, but he doesn’t win the big games and doesn’t carry his team.

Cousins used to fight that narrative, but beginning this past off-season, he’s embraced it and said he needs to do better. That started with his, “I’m basically a .500 quarterback, and that’s not good enough” quote this summer, and has continued this past week with...

Good Morning!

Gone Fishin is still locked out so you get the substitute again for today. Work was a clown show, I didn’t really get started on the thread until after midnight and it took me a while to get untracked. Words up here no one reads™ will be shorter than normal (rob joke on my lack of height) so I can get to bed and do the work thing all over again.

Why is everyone so happy about the Vikings win over Denver?

John Autey Photography

The standard surrounding this organization is way too low

Many of you will not like some of the things I’m about to say here. Let me be VERY clear: there are few people in the world who want to see the Vikings win a Super Bowl more than myself. While I do spew criticism, I also tried to make suggestions. Honestly though, I don’t really care what people think. I spend hours after Vikings games watching every play on coaches film via NFL Game Pass, and know that...

Let’s talk playoffs

Ben Ludeman-USA TODAY Sports

Because it looks like it’s gonna happen

The last five weeks have been somewhat of a roller coaster for the Minnesota Vikings. After playing their worst game of the year at Chicago and dropping to 2-2, they were at their low point of the season in more ways than one.

There was an existential crisis about the future of the team as it’s currently constructed, and there was serious talk about the futures of players and coaches, It felt that there was momentum...

Too early mock draft gives Vikings fans a nice scenario to dream about

Hey, it’s the bye week, so this is okay

Hat tip to the folks at The Vikings Wire, who I saw had this one first.

Usually the mock drafts are Mark’s thing, but since it’s the bye week and we need some stuff to talk about, there’s a mock draft by Luke Easterling over at The Draft Wire that presents what would be a pretty awesome scenario for fans of the Minnesota Vikings.

The real excitement is not with the first selection in the three-round mock,...

Kirk Cousins got nominated for the FedEx Air Award again

David Berding-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s see if he can win another one!

Kirk Cousins had another big week in Week 11 of this 2019 NFL season. More accurately, he had a big second half in leading the Minnesota Vikings to a 27-23 comeback win over the Denver Broncos, but he’s once again gotten the attention of the folks at FedEx.

Yes, Cousins has been nominated for the FedEx Air Player of the Week Award once again.

This is the third time that Cousins has been nominated for the award this...

Gary Kubiak not pursuing head coaching opportunities

Vikings assistant head coach/offensive advisor Gary Kubiak has no interest in returning to the head coaching ranks, as Chad Graff of The Athletic tweets. “That’s not for me anymore,” Kubiak said. That doesn’t come as a major surprise, given that Kubiak stepped down from his last head coaching job with the Broncos due to health concerns, and his health was also an issue during the latter stages of his tenure as the Texans’ HC. However, he is on the sidelines for the first time since...

Good Morning!

Thanks again to Vikings Lifer for posting the thread yesterday.

If he can’t I’ll continue posting the thread. I was able to watch the game on my iPad, and ready to give up at half, but since I was at work...

A TED Talk, Week 11

David Berding-USA TODAY Sports

I’d rather go into the bye with a win like that than a loss like we were looking at.

Hi kids, how are we doing after that game? I gotta say, I didn’t think the Vikings had much of a chance down 20-0 at halftime, but of course, that historic second half comeback really changed the narrative of the Vikings heading into the bye week.

This was a tale of two halves, split into a cautionary tale of what the season would have become, and promising sign of what...

Kirk Cousins says Adam Thielen will return against Seattle

Photo by Adam Bettcher/Getty Images

That should help

As we’ve seen over the past seven games, Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Kirk Cousins has been tearing up pretty much every defense that’s been thrown in front of him. This has been made more impressive by the fact that, in the Vikings’ past five games, wide receiver Adam Thielen has been on the field for about a quarter and a half. Thielen hurt his hamstring in the Vikings’ Week 7 win over the Detroit Lions, and though he...

Vikings vs. Broncos Week 11: Five Game-Changing Plays

Looking back at the most important plays from the thrilling 27-23 win over Denver.

The subheading of my preview article for the game between the Vikings and Broncos last Thursday:

Sunday’s game against Denver might be tough to watch at times, but all the Vikings need to do is get a win before the bye and a tough final stretch.

I had no idea that blurb would prove to be so prescient on Sunday afternoon.

The entire first half wasn’t just tough to...
