1 – It’s a little early for it, but PurplePTSD identifies the Vikings potential “trap games” on the 2022 schedule.

2 – Josh Frey explains three things the 2022 Vikings must fix.

3 – In the daily video segment, Dustin Baker outlines six breakout candidates not named Irv Smith.

4 – Kyle Joudry combs through another tale in the Donatell Diary.

5 – Finally, some scribbles about last offseason’s optimism and how that applies to the here and now.
