Three Hall of Famers who almost played for the Minnesota Vikings (Part 2)
July 13, 2020
Brian Urlacher – LB
During the early portion of the 21st century, the Minnesota Vikings had to deal with going up against Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher twice each season. It was never an easy task.
The All-Pro linebacker became a free agent during the 2013 off-season after 13 years in Chicago. When figuring out what to do next, Urlacher was reportedly considering deals from both the Minnesota and the Denver Broncos.
Eventually, the veteran linebacker didn’t sign with either team but decided to retire from the NFL.
The Vikings arguably ended up having the worst defense in the entire 2013 league. Minnesota gave up the most points that year and their pass defense couldn’t cover a sloth.
So would Urlacher make much of a difference for the Vikings in 2013? His impact might have been too significant, but he likely wouldn’t have been much worse than what they put out on the field.
Dan Marino – QB
In terms of quarterbacks, the Vikings didn’t have much stability under center after a 1999 season that resulted in Jeff George starting 10 games for them.
Heading into the 2000 season, its group of quarterbacks were led by an unproven passer in Daunte Culpepper. Culpepper seemed to have been going to step in and be the starter for the Vikings in this year, but the team also showed some interest in signing future Hall of Fame passer Dan Marino.
Marino spent his entire career being a member of the Miami Dolphins and during the 2000 off-season, he was going to retire or sign with Minnesota. In the end, the 38-year-old quarterback decided that his time in the NFL was finshed and he chose to retire rather than giving it one last shot with the Vikings.
It might be a tough decision for Marino to make as he was never able to win a Super Bowl during his pro career. Joining a Minnesota offense including playmakers like Randy Moss, Robert Smith , and Cris Carter could have been the perfect recipe for the veteran signal-caller to win his first-ever championship.
Luckily for the Vikings, Culpepper ended up playing well during the 2000 season and the team was able to make it all the way to the NFC Championship.
Three Hall of Famers who almost played for the Minnesota Vikings (Part 1)
June 20, 2020
During their history as an NFL franchise, the Minnesota Vikings have been the home for a number of players who were eventually inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
During the last few decades, Minnesota has had some opportunities to add players to their roster who would eventually go on to be enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. But for whatever reason, the Vikings ultimately were not able to work out a deal with these future Hall of Famers.
Some of Minnesota’s recent history could have been altered in a big way if they were actually able to land some of the Hall of Fame talent they were going after. So who were some of these players that almost ended up joining the Vikings before their eventual induction in Canton?
LaDainian Tomlinson – RB
After a long and glorious tenure with the then, San Diego Chargers, LaDainian Tomlinson was in search of a new team in 2010. Tomlinson was coming off a 2009 season with the Chargers that saw him score a total of 12 touchdowns, so he was able to draw a good amount of interest from around the NFL once he became available.
The Vikings were one of the teams who were interested in the talented running back and ultimately, his decision came down picking between Minnesota and the New York Jets.
Tomlinson met with the Vikings and they actually ended up offering him more money to sign than the Jets did. However, the running back recently revealed that New York was able to seal the deal when they gave him and his expecting wife a baby basket.
Tomlinson’s wife was in love with the Jets after their generosity and the future Hall of Famer really didn’t have any other choice than to sign with New York.
He ended up having a pretty decent season with the Jets in 2010 that saw him accumulate a total of 1,282 yards and six touchdowns. Tomlinson then spent one more year in New York before he decided to call it a career in the NFL.
It’s still crazy to think that Minnesota could have had an offensive backfield in 2010 that featured Tomlinson and Adrian Peterson. It definitely would have made life a lot easier for Brett Favre during his final season as the Vikings quarterback.
The reason why you should bet on the NFL at the house
May 31, 2020
Most people bet on the NFL for one or more of these three main reasons.
Some people bet for other reasons, but we firmly believe that these three are the most common.
– To make a profit
– To make keeping track of matches more interesting
– To test their football knowledge
These are perfectly valid grounds for betting on the NFL. In fact, we personally bet for all three of these reasons. Our main motivation is always to make money, but there’s no doubt that we also get more interest from watching the match when we can have some money, and we definitely love the challenge of getting ants. Put your football into the test and try to challenge the house. We love the excitement we get from simply winning a bet as much as loving the fact that it has given us some extra money to spend.
There are a few other good reasons to bet on the NFL. Specifically, the number of betting opportunities that it presents and the amount of insurance it receives. Let’s take a look at these two reasons in a bit more detail.
Number of betting opportunities
One of the first rules of profitable sports betting is to be patient and wait for the right opportunities to place a bet. It would be best if you only bet when there is a good reason to do so. Otherwise, you will significantly reduce your overall chances of making money. It’s good that you bet to find pleasure, but not if your goal is to make money.
The good news is that there are plenty of betting opportunities in the NFL. So, although you still need to practice patience when necessary, there, there are often a lot of good points to make money. The sheer number of matches played per season ensures this.
With 267 matches ready to place a bet, there are obviously many occasions you can determine some value in the betting market. Of course, you shouldn’t bet on every game, but you don’t need to. Even if you only bet on 20% of matches per season, there are still more than 50 matches.
It is also worth noting that there are many different bets that you can place on football matches. Unlike some other sports, you are not limited to just one or two options. This increases the total number of betting opportunities that arise. Here are some examples of betting that most bookmakers offer on soccer games.
– Handicap betting
– Line bets
– Total points bet
– Betting props
– Parlays bets
– Teasers & Pleasers
Not only that, but there are also even more opportunities in the NFL than betting on individual matches or playing online casino games at the house. There are several derivative options available. These are the result-based wagers for the entire season, such as the following.
– Super Bowl winner
– Conference winner
– Divisional winner
– To perform Playoffs
So, in short, it’s fair to say that the NFL really has too many betting opportunities. Which bet you make and how often you place them will ultimately depend on your knowledge and skills, but there are certainly many of them to take advantage of.

Minnesota Vikings News: Team submits plan to NFL for return to action
May 21, 2020
The Minnesota Vikings have officially submitted their plan to the NFL to begin their offseason regimen and prepare for training camp. Here’s the latest on the big news.
At this point in time, the Minnesota Vikings are ready to head back to the TCO Performance Center to begin their journey towards training camp and eventually, preseason action. Due to the current pandemic that has hit the world, teams across the NFL are allowed to submit their finalized plans to return to their training facilities.
If it gets approved, the Vikings will be able to head back to their training camp facility and at least get the wheels in motion that football is indeed on the horizon. It’s all about making sure all players, coaches, and everyone on the Vikings’ staff are able to do what needs to get done in a safe manner. The Vikings plan to do a mix of people that are physically working at the TCO Performance Center and some working remotely as they monitor the current coronavirus pandemic.
In the grand scheme of things, it’s great to see the Vikings take the right steps forward in order to hopefully bring some normalcy to the world. Vikings fans all across the globe are anxious and filled with hope that the NFL will continue as planned with training camp, preseason football, and the regular season all taking place.
Hopefully, there won’t be any suspended events or football games if NFL teams are able to follow all safety protocols and ensure that everyone is safe. Just like the start of every NFL training camp, if this gets approved, the only players that will be allowed to enter training facilities are those in rehab or seeking medical treatment to get ready for football activities. The rest allowed to physically be there will simply be employees that work in the operations/administrative parts of a team.
The NFL put better safety measures in place similar to restaurants and businesses in states that are slowly reopening in that no more than 50 percent of a team’s staff will be allowed in the training facility at any given time. This is a smart move so not only can social distancing be strictly enforced but it will help make keeping facilities clean and sanitized at all times even easier.
Overall, the Vikings are already ahead of the game and hopefully, will be on track to get their training camp program approved to prepare for the adventures ahead.
What the Minnesota Vikings can expect from Troy Dye this year
April 27, 2020
With the 132nd overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings picked up Oregon linebacker, Troy Dye. He is an experienced play-maker on the defensive side and can be a situational player in Minnesota.
The Minnesota Vikings has done a great job of pointing positions of need very early in the 2020 NFL Draft. This helped them to take more of a great pick as they added Oregon’s linebacker Troy Dye in the fourth round. Dye takes part in a crowded group of young Minnesota Vikings linebackers who will compete together for playing time on defense and special teams.
Minnesota Vikings has a lot of young hopefuls already in their linebacker space. Players such as Eric Wilson and Ben Gedeon are likely on their last opportunity to stick around. Meanwhile, DeMarquis Gates, Cameron Smith, and Troy Dye will be competing for early playing time.
Dye comes to the Minnesota Vikings with a variety of starting experience under his belt. During four years at Oregon, Dye appeared in 48 matches and recorded 391 tackles. Dye has shown that he can make plays against both the pass and run, and bring some versatility to his game.
The newest defender of Minnesota Vikings projects as a situational linebacker who can support in coverage from the jump. He is sound in coverage as well as has a ton of length in his favor when he stands at 6-foot-3. If new Minnesota Vikings senior defensive assistant Dom Capers plans to play Anthony Barr as an edge rusher a little more often, Dye can have the change to take his spot in coverage.
The fourth round of the 2020 NFL was a solid value for Dye in this draft class. What will he be able to bring to the table for the new-look Minnesota defense?
The results of NFL championships are not clear yet
March 29, 2020
Looking forward to the penultimate week 16 of the regular NFL season, there is still plenty of room to win for the NFL Playoffs.
While the three teams have won their divisions and the other five are certain that they will make it to the playoffs, four more points remain and the ability to take a little break in the final round makes it more palatable.
At AFC, Baltimore Ravens won the leadership positions in the North and Kansas City in the West. Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots defended their playoffs but still had to fight for the final spot in AFC East when they faced Gillette Stadium.
Patriots now have a victory first, so if they don’t lose to Bills, the reigning champions will win their share. Elsewhere in the AFC, Houston Texans are joining AFC South with a victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the road.
NFC has only one established split winner and it’s Drew Brees leading New Orleans Saints, who has won NFC South with a wide margin.
However, the four teams in NFC have the same 11-3 record so the battle for the first round is goodbye. Green Bay Packers are one of those four teams and they can guarantee their division by defeating rival Minnesota Vikings, who can then secure a playoff berth by not losing that match.
The difficult 7-7 situation in NFC East could be over, if the Dallas Cowboys beat rivals Philadelphia Eagles in the City of Brotherly Love – both teams 7-7 with Dallas currently own a break-break due to Win the first encounter. Winning the cowboy means they can advance to the playoffs with a score of 8-8.
While a lot of teams are facing the opportunity to take their places and ease the pressure until the final week, there are five teams fighting for two play-off positions at AFC and four teams in NFC.
Houston Texans and Pittsburgh Steelers are the most likely candidates to proceed at the AFC but the challengers of Tennessee Titans and even Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders are still alive – almost none, but still alive. In NFC, it belongs to the Dallas and Philadelphia battles, while the Los Angeles Rams remain absent from NFC West and the Minnesota Vikings are still unsure.
Which 2020 prospects have met with the Vikings so far?
March 16, 2020
During the previous couple of months, the Minnesota Vikings have met with numerous prospects who they could choose at some stage in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The Minnesota Vikings were busy this offseason attending all-celebrity video games and the combine and meeting with as many prospects as they could.
A number of those are just a brief whats up and maybe a brief discussion in among drills, even as others are a more formal sit down down where Vikings’ coaches and scouts can surely select the brain of those gamers.
Those conferences are very essential due to the fact it’s far the Vikings threat to get to understand these possibilities on a personal level. They don’t have to go see them live to recognize what they run inside the 40-yard dash, or how a long way they can lengthy bounce.
There are also oodles and oodles of tape on just about each unmarried prospect imaginable, so the team already is aware of what they’re able to at the football field.
It’s getting a experience of what makes these children tick that’s so essential. The hardest thing to measure on a capacity player is their coronary heart and desire for the game. those conferences are the Vikings’ best hazard to get a feel of that.
Trey Adams – OT (Washington)
Trey Adams already turned into speckled with purple flags due to his lengthy damage history, after which in drills, Adams simply seemed out of shape. He turned into wearing a very good-sized gut, and his arms and lower body lacked any seen signal of muscle definition.
His workouts had been many of the worst on the combine. He changed into so slow inside the 40-backyard dash that rich Eisen nearly beat him. He turned into additionally mentioning the rear in the relaxation of the checking out. at the least he became open and honest in his interviews with groups but ordinary, this guy didn’t assist his inventory on the combine.
The Vikings took a while and met with Adams and it does make sense. They need a young left address of the destiny with Riley Reiff nearing the stop of his time with the group. Adams changed into once seen as a pinnacle-flight left address prospect earlier than suffering knee and lower back accidents. The Minnesota Vikings had been smart to have their docs take a near have a look at him. if they don’t see any continual troubles with his accidents they may give him a scientific clearance.
along with his lengthy injury records and bad exercising, he must fall to the 1/3 day of the Draft. If he does and the Vikings like him sufficient, they might take him and potentially have a scouse borrow on their hands if he can regain his shape prior to suffering the ones maladies.
Trevon Diggs – CB (Alabama)
The Minnesota Vikings had to already be acquainted with Trevon Diggs.
Diggs has extraordinary length, and the speed to go together with it. He’s a former huge receiver who has been gambling cornerback for the previous few seasons. He can persist with his guy like duct tape and has precise footwork and quick hips. His lack of production is a bit concerning, however as a former extensive receiver, he’ll recognize what the person he’s overlaying is making an attempt to do and he might be much less vulnerable to head fakes and now not chunk on double moves.
Diggs also can be a viable return alternative for the Vikings, using that explosive velocity to put the crew in desirable subject role. He didn’t fully compete at the integrate as he recovers from a foot harm, so perhaps the Vikings desired to convey him in and get a closer have a look at how this is progressing. Diggs has an awesome hazard of finishing up in crimson, and the Vikings assembly with him to in addition their assessment makes a ton of sense.
Looking back the 100th NFL American football season (Part 1)
March 14, 2020
The NFL 2019 American football season officially opened on September 5, 2019 and it is also the 100th league season.
Based on the performance of each team since the 2018 football season and some changes that each team has made during the last break, sports analysts have made some predictions about the situation of each team and the high and low ranks.
Their in the tables for this year. However, from here to the end of the season, there will certainly be many changes. In fact, this happened after the Indianapolis Colts quarterback (pitching) pitcher Indianapolis Luck suddenly announced his retirement. Since the training camps opened in the summer, the Colts have been named one of this year’s strong teams.
But Luck’s ankle injury kept shaking and he decided to leave the pitch. Without Luck, arguably one of the best NFL quarterbacks, the Colts will not be as strong. While New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs are said to be the two strongest teams of the AFC team and one of these two teams will represent AFC in this year’s Super Bowl championship.
While the NFC team can mention the two teams New Orlean Saints and Los Angeles Rams. These are also the two teams that met in the Conference Championship last year and Rams defeated Saints to reach the Super Bowl. This will be interesting if the two teams clash again in this year’s semi-finals.
(New England Patriots, New York Jets, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins)
No matter how good a team is, at some point it is imperative to go down, but until that happens one has to accept that the Patriots are still the strongest team in this year’s table. Despite losing Rob Gronkowski, but Julian Edelman and James White are still very reliable catchers for quarterback Tom Brady.
The defense is quite strong, and most importantly, Bill Belichick is still their coach, so right now Patriots is included in the list of teams of this year’s championship round probably not too early. The Jets will do their best to follow the Patriots, but will probably only win 8 and lose 8 in the qualifying round.
Bills is a very high team and only average. Particularly Dolphins is said to be one of the weakest teams this year, because both the orchestra and the defense are poor.
