Links of the Week: End of the Road

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.

  • After failing to be voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year, former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens went on an ESPN morning radio show and proceeded to express his dislike for a former Minnesota Vikings receiver.



  • Vikings fullback Zach Line had a bunch of life changing experiences happen to him in 2015. From scoring his first career touchdown to the birth of his first child, Line will most certainly enjoy the memories he helped create this past year.


  • The Broncos won this year’s Super Bowl largely due to their defensive superiority. Does Mike Zimmer have the Vikings defense on a similar path to greatness?


  • Looking to go to a Vikings next season in their brand new stadium? The schedule has not yet been announced for 2016, but single game tickets have already started to pop up online.


  • Minnesota got a lot of production from the members of their 2015 Draft class last season. Did their performances change how the class was re-graded after the year concluded?



  • Chad Greenway will go down as one of the greatest Vikings in the history of the franchise when he is finished with his career. However, has he played his last down for the team in purple?


  • There were plenty of players that stepped up their play for the Vikings in 2015. But what player stood out and was the team’s breakout performer from last season?


  • Offense is not necessarily what one would call a strength of the Vikings in 2015. Improving the offense’s production next season is a top priority for the team if they plan on becoming a contender.


  • Your Moment of Zen this week comes from the ‘Dave Dameshek Football Program’ in which¬†Dave and his co-hosts interview Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr during the week leading up to Super Bowl 50. (Interview starts at the 22:05 mark of the video).

Adam has been rooting for the Vikings ever since he saw Randall Cunningham win NFC Special Teams Player of the week in 1997. Since his career sports highlights include 3rd place at 5th Grade Golf Camp and catching a ball during a soccer game (he was not playing goalie), Adam turned to writing. He considers himself a 'Vikings Realist' as he does not shy away from criticizing the purple and gold if necessary. He will not always write about the popular topics, but his goal is to provide readers with content they cannot find anywhere else. Follow him on Twitter @Str8_Cash_Homey

  1. “Chad Greenway will go down as one of the greatest Vikings in the history of the franchise when he is finished with his career.”

    One of the top 100 certainly, top 50 maybe, but one of the “greatest” in franchise history? No. Not if you measure greatness by the NFL Hall of Fame, whose Vikings players are Tarkenton, Carter, Tingelhoff, Yary, Zimmerman, McDaniel, Page, Eller, Randle, Doleman and Krause and will definitely include Peterson and Moss and probably Hutchinson. Greenway is down on the next level, with the Jim Marshalls, Paul Blairs, Ahmad Rashads and Chuck Foremans, or maybe even one step lower with the Sammy Whites, Henry Thomases and Bobby Bryants.

    Now, if you had said one of the “most popular” Vikings of all time, you might very well have been right.
