As we have mentioned a number of times, it has been a great honor to be invited to take part in the Vike Fans audio previews of the coming season. Tom Moore and the gang have one heck of an operation going over there and we encourage you to check them out on a regular basis and also register for their forums to join in on their many, many discussions.
Last in the series, but certainly not least, are these two great season preview segments from VT’s own Lindsey Young and Carl Knowles. Lindsey is on offense and Carl is taking the defense. Enjoy!
The Vikings open the 2014 season with a much-anticipated matchup against the St. Louis Rams. The time to obsess only over our Vikings roster is over and we must now be aware of the teams that stand between us and the 2014 playoffs.
With the opener almost upon us, I asked Nathan Kearns to answer a few questions about the Rams and what we can expect to see. Nathan is an Editor over at the Ramblin Fan, as well as a die-hard Rams fan, and helps us understand our first real enemy of 2014.
I asked Nathan to make a prediction at the end of this, but first he was kind enough to answer five questions about this Rams team:
Pop in a tape from Week 8 through Week 17 of the St. Louis Rams 2013 season and you will get a pretty solid idea. Much like when Bradford went down last season, Jeff Fisher and company will revert back to a conservative offense that relies heavily on the running game. Shaun Hill is a more accurate thrower than Kellen Clemens, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Rams take a few more shots down the field. However, for the most part, it will be a run-oriented offense, with a mix of play-action and short throws to move the football down the field.
We here at VT had the good fortune of getting to know Tom Moore and the other fine folks over at VikeFans.com. They are one of the most hopping, and most well-informed, Vikings forums on the internet. Meanwhile, Tom and the gang keep putting together some of the best Vikings content you can find anywhere, and it comes most often in the form of some great radio-style interviews.
Considering the regular bits with Pete Bercich, the interviews of legends like Tommy Kramer, and the on-field updates from first round picks, it was a great honor when VT was asked to participate in a series of preseason conversations with Tom Moore.
Each of us will spend some time talking to Tom this week, and we will be sure to post each video as they become available, but we encourage you to make VikeFans.com a part of your regular Vikings-news diet and considering registering yourself as a member of their forums if you aren’t already.
First up is Darren Page discussing the rookie class, which is mighty timely considering final cuts are almost upon us. Enjoy!
With two weeks of preseason in the books, and only two more remaining, we are getting quite close to the time when the Vikings (and everyone else) have to start trimming down the roster. As our Week Three contest approaches, here are the best links I could find from around the internet, so tell them who sent ya:
Vikings training camp in Mankato come to a close which means it is a great time to round up the best links across the internet:
I’ll admit it. I’m viewing things through purple-colored sunglasses these days, with Mike Zimmer making me an optimistic fan yet again, and finding five things I loved about our first preseason victory was much easier than this post.
Afterall, “hate” is a mighty strong word.
So, it might be best to consider this more of a list of things that annoy me.
5. Kluwe Shadow Still Looms Large
As I stated, I’m loving this new regime and all of the excitement that comes with it. Paul Allen, a homeristic homer, navigated away from the harsh truths of the Chris Kluwe versus Mike Priefer saga during his broadcast, but the national guys will not be so kind to the Vikings organization. During those first few weeks, when Priefer is serving his suspension, the new coaching staff will have their debut games tainted by this distracting drama and the talking points that are sure to follow.
