This whole losing thing is really starting to get old. Maybe the Minnesota Vikings could come up with a few plays this Sunday to actually end the game with more points than their opponent?

Strange concept, but if done right, it may work.

The Vikings came close last week, holding the Detroit Lions to three points and 36 total yards in the second half until their very last two drives. But unfortunately, it was those last two drives that ended up winning the game for the Lions and handing Minnesota their third straight loss of the season.

Now in order for the Vikings to avoid losing four games in a row this weekend against the Washington Redskins, there are a few suggestions they may want to take into consideration.

In the triumphant return of Bump & Run, I give advice on how to cope with that obnoxious Eagles beat writer, and explain why not being undefeated is actually better. Plus, my most outside-the-box (read: stupid) touchdown pick yet. This and more in our first post-loss episode.

On Monday morning, it was announced that longtime Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman Phil Loadholt had decided to retire. With his retirement, Loadholt’s spot on the Vikings roster is presumably vacant.

Minnesota now has three openings on their roster before their total number reaches the NFL’s 90-man limit. The Vikings can decide to leave those spots empty before they start training camp later this week, but that would not be any fun would it?

Surprisingly enough, there are still plenty of talented free-agents available that could produce for Minnesota during the 2016 season.

Fullback Zach Line won’t ever get the blockbuster deal that dominates headlines during the NFL’s free agency news cycle, but you can’t hold positional value against him too much.

In an age where the fullback position is listed as an endangered species (or should be) in the NFL, Line has proven plenty capable of being one of the best among the guys still talented enough to be employed. Line might have a limited role within the Vikings offense, but he plays that role well, and we listed him as our second most important free agent the Vikings have this offseason.

Line is a restricted free agent and the Vikings have opted to place a tender on him, according to a press release from the Minnesota Vikings, giving the team the right to first refusal should he sign an offer sheet with another team.

The 2015 season has officially concluded with the Denver Broncos defeating the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 last Sunday. For the next six months, the world will sadly be without any NFL football games taking place.

But that does not mean there will be nothing to talk about during the time before the 2016 regular season begins. Free agency, the NFL Draft, and training camps will all give people plenty to discuss and hold themselves over until real football is played and everyone’s hot takes are proven to be wrong.
