Skol Scale

Vikings Territory staffer Drew Mahowald presents the third edition of his brand new segment for the 2017 season, the Skol Scale.

The preseason is finally here. Full uniforms are on and pads are clashing and stadiums are filling with fans.

But preseason football isn’t always the best. In fact, most preseason games are downright ugly because offenses are still disorganized and not yet established. This calls for low-scoring games and defensive struggles.

It was no different for the Vikings in their first preseason game of 2017 at Buffalo. The offense sputtered for the most part and both defenses had their way. Ultimately, Minnesota came away with a 17-10 win.

The fan base nonetheless reacted as if the Earth itself was caving in after a mere three series for the first-team offense netted zero points. WELP, THE OFFENSIVE LINE IS STILL BURNING GARBAGE, MIGHT AS WELL GIVE UP ON THE SEASON. OH, AND BRADFORD CHECKED DOWN THAT ONE TIME. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THIS DUDE IS TRASH.

Hey, you, person reading this: calm down. It’s preseason. The 0-16 Lions went 4-0 in the preseason.

In this edition of the Skol Scale, I won’t even mention the first time on either side of the ball (other than who earned first-team reps at various unresolved spots). It’s not worth it after literally one quarter. (If you want dramatic overreactions, read Sam’s post from a couple of days ago. WARNING: THE SATIRE READING GLASSES ARE REQUIRED. Just check the comments for proof).

I will instead mention a few individual performances that stuck out for better or for worse. A number of bubble players helped their cause for a roster spot, while a few others struggled.
