Here we are, finally and officially having reached the NFL offseason. Let’s take a moment to watch the above video, Xavier Rhodes mic’d up in the Pro Bowl, before moving on to a revival of the ol’ links of the week post. One takeaway on the Rhodes video: he certainly has the temperament of a top-flight cornerback, so we have that going for us. The segment is worth watching just to see him shoot the breeze with some of the best receivers in the game, like Odell Beckham and Dez Bryant.

Now, let’s see what’s happening in the rest of Vikings land.

  • Matt Vensel wrote a quick blog examining what it would take for the Vikings to move back into the first round of the Draft. He uses the 29th pick as a hypothetical target, because the end of the round is the most attainable and realistic scenario. Basically, Vensel says it’s possible the Vikings could use their second- and third-round picks to get back into round one, which doesn’t sound too bad, considering they possess two third- and fourth-rounders. So under this hypothetical, they could end up with a late first, one third, one fourth, and so on. Chances are they’d have to throw in a late rounder to sweeten the pot, but I don’t think anyone would complain.

Question of the Week

Super Bowl Curse

Long before ESPN predicted a Minnesota Vikings-Indianapolis Colts Super Bowl next season, a rogue Youtube user uploaded a unique, ranting revelation — the Colts would defeat the Vikings in Super Bowl 51.

That obviously didn’t happen, as the New England Patriots mounted the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history to beat the Atlanta Falcons last Sunday. The Colts and the Vikings, meanwhile, watched from home, dreaming of future Super Bowl victories.
