It’ll surprise few people that the son of Vikings Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter has some talent. Duron Carter has had multiple NFL tryouts after a troubled college career, including with the Vikings at one point, but he has never been able to take his game to the world’s largest stage other than during a very brief stay with the Colts.

Instead, Duron Carter destroys opponents in the Canadian Football League as a member of the Montreal Alouettes.

The website 3 Down Nation recently recapped some of Carter’s moment in Montreal that don’t exactly reflect well on him, including a recent altercation with a teammate and a moment in 2014 where the team actually held a vote regarding their ability to play alongside the star playmaker.

Football is here! Finally a meaningful game for the Minnesota Vikings!

So let’s talk fantasy.

Obviously, the announcement of Shaun Hill starting at quarterback for the Vikings on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans will have an impact on the performance of some of Minnesota’s top offensive players. The production of the Vikings’ rushing attack should get a boost, but the team’s passing offense might be pretty hard to watch this weekend.

Vikings Versus Titans Preview With Terry Lambert

There are plenty of questions left unanswered about this 2016 Minnesota Vikings team, especially in the wake of all the quarterback happenings, but with one day left until the season opener it is time to recognize that the makeup of this team is only half of the equation that will determine the final record. The other half of the equation is how the enemy performs in battle.

Today, we welcome Terry Lambert of Music City Miracles who was kind enough to answer five pressing questions about our first opponent of 2016: The Tennessee Titans.

Lambert is in his second full season of Titans coverage, is very in tune with the team, and keeps up with all of the daily news impacting that team. You can check out all of their content heading into Sunday by following them on Twitter (@TitansMCM) and by following Terry personally (@TLambertFB).

#MoreThanWords 2016
Image designed by Brett Anderson

It’s a cold winter afternoon in Cincinnati, Ohio. Corri and Vicki Zimmer walk out of the local grocery store, only to spot a homeless woman on the side of the road, shaking from either hunger or the frigid air. Corri, daughter of Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer, remembers her late mother’s generous actions fondly.

“My mom rummaged through her groceries to give her whatever we could; a pack of water, beef jerky, random things,” Corri said. “The next time we went to the store, my mom would keep a bag in her car just in case we saw the woman or another homeless person. She was super kind-hearted, sweet, a really great person.”

Vicki’s spirit lives on through the Mike Zimmer Foundation, which was launched by Mike, Corri, and the rest of the Zimmer family earlier this year as a way to give back to the local community. Through scholarships, football camps,and other programs, the Foundation is helping Minnesota’s children in-need achieve their goals and discover new, life-changing opportunities.

It’s that same spirit that made #MoreThanWords such a resounding success in 2016. We raised more than $15,000 for the Mike Zimmer Foundation, smashing our original goal of $10,000. But it wasn’t a one-blog, one-person, or even one-donation effort; Vikings Territory, other participating blogs, our angel sponsor Fan HQ, Corri Zimmer, the Mike Zimmer Foundation, and fans around the globe achieved this incredible feat together.

The Minnesota Vikings director of sports medicine and head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman updated the fans and media on Teddy Bridgewater’s surgical operation in a press release distributed by the team on Friday.

Eden Prairie, MN (September 9, 2016) Teddy Bridgewater had his left knee surgically repaired yesterday. The procedure was performed by Dr. Dan Cooper at the Carrell Clinic in Dallas, TX. The knee dislocation resulted in Teddy needing a multi-ligament reconstruction. I was able to be present in Dallas, support Teddy and observe the entire procedure. The repair was excellent and gives Teddy every reason to be very optimistic.

Teddy already began the rehab process yesterday, will return to Minnesota to continue on the road to recovery very soon and looks forward to getting back on the field.

This update received some attention in the media, including some under-informed dissection of the “multi-ligament” phrase, and it is clear that the return of Bridgewater will be a long storyline to follow. The conclusion of which will take place sometime in 2017 at the earliest.

The more pressing matter is which healthy quarterback the Vikings have rostered will start in the regular season opener in Tennessee on Sunday.
