The Vikings’ blunders in Buffalo were glaring, but shrugging some of them off is part of the summer drill.

So this time there will be some preparation for the team we play? Boy, I really like that idea.

They need to drop the QB depth chart list on the floor, pick it up, and leave it upside down.

And then there was Bishop playing the run while his responsibility in the pass defense was standing all alone in the end zone.

Losing is losing; and the indifference and attitude that has shown up is unacceptable. I watched the Little League World Series games yesterday and found them "refreshing."

I'm sure Mr. Ponder is a very nice man, but he just isn't a NFL starting quarterback, Mr Frasier's job is pending with this man.

Could you imagine paying money to watch a preseason game. Or making an effort to get to a preseason game. Or spending a fistful of dollars to buy a beer at a preseason game. Imagine that.

Vikes were 1-3 last year. I seem to recall Chilly doing well in preseason. Means nothing.

Vonnegut5...that's why I'm happy to be a former season-ticket holder...used to give the preseasons to the Boys Club ...then after 18 years realized that except for maybe 1 or 2 games per season, the at-home TV experience outweighed the stadium experience

Comment229, funny you mention Little League WS, that is about the highest level of competition Frazier and Musgrave could handle, maybe. Let's hope the Wilfs plan is to hire a REAL Head Coach the year the new stadium is ready.
