Saturday’s ICYMI: Zimmer Has Eighth Eye Surgery, Discusses Michael Floyd

VT’s “In Case You Missed It” intends to funnel every news report, the most general of informational notes, and a handful of the best analysis articles about the Minnesota Vikings into one all-encompassing write-up. If you don’t have the time to follow the Purple and Gold as much as you may like, allow Vikings Territory to do the dirty work for you with our catch-all Vikings recap of everything you may have missed.

Some may remember Chris Kluwe as the former Minnesota Vikings punter who spent eight seasons with the team from 2005-2012. While others may remember Kluwe more for his not-so-quiet exit from Minnesota.

I was lucky enough to talk to the former Vikings punter recently about topics such as the team’s current punting situation, marijuana in the NFL, Colin Kaepernick, and whether or not he will making an appearance at U.S. Bank stadium anytime soon.

    Less than one week after a disgusting display in San Francisco, your Minnesota Vikings are back in Vikings territory for their home opener and first divisional matchup.

    The 2015 rookie class is getting even less exposure to life in the NFL this week, but our roster is relatively healthy outside of those already known to be out of action, like Phil Loadholt and John Sullivan.

    Austin Belisle has done a great job of explaining the importance Xavier Rhodes has in the outcome of this showdown and I’m looking forward to seeing him line up across from Calvin Johnson. Lindsey Young thinks stretching the field on offense could also be a key to a much-needed victory this week.

    Meanwhile, Brent LaBathe thinks we could see a much different version of Mike Zimmer’s defense this week given that Matt Stafford is far less mobile than Colin Kaepernick. I personally agree with Brent on that aspect and will be mightily disappointed if we don’t see marked improvement on defense this week.

    The NFL season is on us like white on rice. We’re still three days away from our Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings taking on the San Francisco 4ers (the 9 retired) Monday night at the Field of Jeans, home of Super Bowl Fitty. To get a dual perspective, we got Vincent Frank (@VincentFrankNFL) of eDraft, Yardbarker, and Forbes to stop by and drop some Niner knowledge on us as well as Arif Hasan’s (@ArifHasanNFL) weekly spot talking mostly offensive line issues. 🙁
