Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings Beat the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2012 Home Opener – Game Bullets

Coming off a 3-13 season the Vikings needed to get off to a winning start this year, and thankfully for them they had the Jacksonville Jaguars in town for the 2012 regular season opener at Mall of America Field, another team in the midst of a rebuilding with young talent.

After an anemic start, the Vikings led by second year quarterback Christan Ponder and running back Adrian Peterson did what appeared to be enough to solidify a win, until a dramatic turn of events with less than 30 seconds left in regulation time threatened to put the Vikings in the loss column to start the season.

University Of Minnesota Agrees To Let Vikings Use TCF Stadium During Construction

What a week!  The Vikings stadium plan made it through in the nick of time, with the team expected to play there in 2016.  The Vikings will play at the Metrodome in 2012, but what happens after that?  They may get some more time in the 'dome, but they will play at least one season on the University Of Minnesota campus at TCF Stadium.

After Years Of Discussion And A Reality That The Vikings Could Leave, A Stadium Plan Is Approved

I have been following this for awhile and 'As The Stadium Turns' appears to be ending with the end result being a brand new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings.  Will this benefit Viking's owner Zygi Wilf?  Of course it will but he is the one who is putting up the lions share of money for the stadium, and more than most NFL owners are on the hook for.  The big picture is that this will benefit the state too and not just with the instant construction jobs it creates.

Vikings Stadium Plan Passes Minnesota House; Ownership Asked To Pay More

In a big step forward for those who support a new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings, the Minnesota House voted 73-58 to approve a public subsidy package for a new stadium, The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.  It will now head toward the state Capitol for final passage.  The stadium project could go to the Senate for a vote as soon as today.  If all goes well, it could be ready for Governor Mark Dayton to sign into law by the end of the week.  However, Viking's owner Zygi Wilf may not be 100% pleased with the plan that was passed.

Vikings Appear To Have Had Successful Draft, But Time Will Tell

The 2012 NFL draft is over and now all the experts come out and analyze each and every pick and project whether it was a good draft or not.  If you're a Vikings fan, it is great to see that they are receiving overall positive grades on their draft, especially the first round.  To me, it's all about trying to fill needs on your team with the best athlete available based on advice of the people you trust in the organization.

Vikings Work Trade, Then Take Kalil With No. 4 Pick

I thought the Minnesota Vikings handled their first pick in the NFL draft perfectly.  Ultimately, they wanted nasty LT Matt Kalil and would've been happy to take him with the 3rd pick.  However, Cleveland feared they may lose the player they wanted so they moved up to the 3rd pick in a trade that moved the Vikings to the 4th pick.  In a nutshell, the Vikings got the player they wanted, paid less for him, and then acquired 3 additional picks from Cleveland.  They then used that Cleveland trade to move back into the first round to get Notre Dame safety Harrison Smith in the 1st round.

Only time will tell how everything shakes out, but I think these moves were great in that they added athletes to a Vikings roster that desperately needs them.  What do you think of the Vikings first round moves?

NFL Turns Up Heat: ‘There Are Plenty Of Willing Buyers’ For Vikings

What a year of embarrassment for the state of Minnesota.  It wasn't long ago we made headlines with the shutdown.  Now our "leaders" are being  scrutinized across the country once again.  Regardless of your stance on the stadium issue, everyone should be concerned with the inability to communicate and work together amongst leadership.  They play games and pout.  As I mentioned yesterday, the chances the Vikings will leave Minnesota are now stronger than the chances they will stay.   The lions share of the blame can be placed on elected officials who dragged their feet for 6 years.  I don't know if  it was arrogance or ignorance, or a healthy dose of both on their part.
