Week 1: Vikings/Saints Preview

The Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints will open their 2017 regular seasons with a bang on Monday Night Football. The primetime match up is a classic top-offense versus top-defense showdown, with a little Adrian Peterson sprinkled in.

It’s a familiar story; a well-known player that spent many years with his original team signs with a new one, and then returns to where he began his career. But this homecoming is different. Peterson was the face of the Vikings franchise for a decade. Not only that, he may be one of the top-five Vikings of all time. The reception Peterson receives from the home crowd will be noteworthy.

Why There’s Hope For A Minnesota Vikings Super Bowl Victory

“A team is only as strong as it’s weakest player.”

I’m not a fan of that expression, partially because I know how it feels to be the weakest player and partially because if it were up to me, I’d simply replace the worst player on the team. But I digress.

Why bring it up then? It’s because nowadays, too many people analyze teams that way. A player has a bad game or a rough stretch of games and suddenly he’s garbage, and so is the team if they don’t replace the player immediately.

It’s simply not a fair judgement. There’s more to a team than meets the eye. A team wins and loses together, rolls with the punches, celebrates the good times, and changes individuals for the better.

VT Roundtable Episode 17

Welcome Back to the VT Roundtable!

The team once again gathers around the table to talk a variety of different Vikings topics. This episode features a five-man squad consisting of ever-optimistic Austin Belisle (@austincbelisle), ever-pessimistic Drew Mahowald (@DrewMahowald), ever-charismatic(@NeumSamN), ever-rational Adam Warwas (@vikingterritory) and the ring leader Brett Anderson (@brettAnderson87).  The group discusses whether or not they’re buying Michael Floyd’s kombucha story and joins Zimmer in his recent self-reflection to determine areas the head coach can improve. Things are wrapped up in entertaining fashion when the team picks what current Vikings player they’d want to be with on a deserted island.
