    I'm wondering if this is more of an issue of mental toughness (or lack thereof) for the team. Every year, there are injuries. This year, the Vikings have had a ton of injuries - and most of the...

    I just wonder if the team is just not mentally tough, especially with all the injuries that have decimated the Vikings this year. Has it reached the point where a number of the players have just HAD...

    I think the best road to a 4-0 finish and a 10-6 season is for the Vikings to do what they did in the first 5 weeks of the season - force turnovers and turn them into points. That was the formula for...

    Boy, when it rains it pours, doesn't it? We just wish Hurricane Katrina would stop!

    Given the severity of Smith's injury, I think the Vikings should just put him on IR, and hope he can come back...

    For the record, it's my opinion that the entire 2016 season be considered a mulligan because of the extreme impact of injuries on the team. Rick Spielman did not cause the injuries to occur. I cannot...

    Unfortunately, I think this is the right decision for the team - and for the fan base. Blair Walsh was a professional - and by his missed extra points, was not doing his job. I think Walsh just has...

    My thoughts on the Lions game:

    1. I'll take 31 for 40 for 273 yards from Bradford any time!

    2. Like it or not, I think we're stuck with Walsh for the rest of the year. Perhaps the change in LS...

    Well said. It goes along with my nephew's main comment about the Vikings' OT loss vs. Detroit: the "inability to finish drives". I think injuries are certainly the main reason why the team is...

    I think one thing that maybe should be considered is that the Vikings had a lot of positive momentum going into their bye week. In their last game before the bye week, the Vikings blew out Houston....

    Steelguitar,

    Right after the Vikings drafted Ponder, my brother called me. He wanted the Vikings to draft Jake Locker, but Locker was already drafted. I had wanted Ryan Mallett, but the Vikings...

    I feel the Vikings played a "clean" game. They didn't turn over the ball, but forced 3 turnovers leading to 2 TD's and (if I recall) had only 5 penalties. That formula alone should lead to several...

    This is NOT what the Vikings needed! The rest of the team is very good now. Shaun Hill is a really smart QB. As I texted a co-worker friend, we may need to temper our expectations and celebrate our...

    It will be a good game in my opinion. The team needs to remember how the season started last year (a 20-3 loss in San Francisco). The Vikings need to play better in Tennessee this year!

    I also like this pick. I envision him as an Anquan Boldin type of WR - one who can make the tough catches and help us better convert third downs. Personally, I like the fact that he took his 3-year...
