First Regular Season Home Game At TCF Bank Stadium

The first regular season home game at TCF Bank Stadium is FINALLY here. While the word around town is that the game is an expected sell out, I was able to secure tickets through the fine folks at Ticket King.

So if you’re looking for tix to the game, you can find them here.

The Vikings are playing the Patriots, so this is sure to be a tough matchup, especially if Tom Brady is on his ‘A’ game. But I’m confident our Vikes will put up a fight… and possibly a win. Skol Vikings!

Vikings Regular Season Starts This Sunday September 7th

It’s almost here. It’s FINALLY almost here. In four more days the Vikings kick their regular season off on Sunday September 7th against the St. Louis Rams.

Like all Vikings fans, I will be glued to my TV this Sunday, looking to see how new head coach Mike Zimmer has prepared the boys for what will hopefully result in a win.

I mean, how great would it be to start the season off undefeated. Fingers crossed, and Skol Vikings! `

Meet Vikings Offensive Coordinator Norv Turner

Meet Norv Turner, the Offensive Coordinator for the Vikings, and the man that will hopefully spearhead an improved passing and scoring attack. Turner has many years of coaching experience, so we’re confident he’ll be able to get the job done.

Like with most coaches, he started out in the college ranks. In Turner’s case, he had a near decade long stop with USC. From there, he made his coaching debut in the NFL with the Los Angeles Rams in 1985, acting as a Wide Receivers Coach. For the rest of his career in the NFL he would have stints as an Offensive Coordinator, as well as the occasional Head Coaching gig.

Turner had Head Coaching stops with the football team in Washington, the Oakland Raiders and the San Diego Chargers. He achieved the most success with Chargers, going 56-40 in his six seasons at the helm.

Today, Turner is in charge of creating the offensive game plan for the Vikes. And given his track record, expect to see big things from the Vikings offense this year.

Meet Vikings Defensive Coordinator George Edwards

Meet George Edwards, the new Vikings Defensive Coordinator. Brought in with Mike Zimmer’s new regime, the veteran football coach with over 20 years of coaching experience is looking to improve a Vikings defense that struggled mightily last year (Need evidence? The Vikings D gave up the second most yards per game in the league, at a staggering rate of 397.6).

Edwards got his start in 1991, working as an Assistant at the University of Florida. From there, he would work his way up in the College ranks until he found himself in the NFL, working for the Dallas Cowboys in 1998 as their Linebackers Coach. It was here for the first time that he was able to work with Mike Zimmer, who during Edwards’ time spent with Cowboys acted as, at first a Defensive Backs Coach, and then Defensive Coordinator. Edwards would work alongside Zimmer for three years before leaving for the team’s rival in Washington.

From there, Edwards would bounce around the NFL and even make on one last stop at the University of Florida – never staying in one place for more than three years (except with the Miami Dolphins acting as a Linebackers Coach).

Today, Edwards is looking to hang tight with Vikings and help improve a defense that needs improving. Skol Vikings!
