Guest Blog: Vikings Season Preview by Davis Thropp

Minnesota-VikingsOff seasons are never dull if you are a Vikings fan , this off season was no different so it’s nice to focus on football finally. Adrian Peterson returning to the Vikings is huge if they are to realise any hopes of a play off run, coupled with the emerging Teddy Bridgewater it could really open up an offence that on paper should be explosive.

Mike Wallace gives us a legit deep threat and rookie Steffon Diggs looks a real challenge to the under performing Cordarelle Patterson. Defensively the Vikings look very strong again. Up front Everson Griffin will be a handful for anyone and a fit again Antony Barr and his former team mate Kendricks impressing greatly our LB core looks much improved. Xavier Rhodes will have a pro bowl year at CB and potentially Harry Smith also at Safety our pass D should improve also.

One area for concern is kicker Blair Walsh who from the middle of last season is kicking about 60% which after an amazing first year is worrying. Overall the Vikings should make a strong run at the play offs but I think it’s a year too soon to get too carried away.
