vikings 'win' coin flip, will first be on the clock at pick no. 48


the vikings won their coin flip with the colts at the nfl scouting combine today, but the victory is not something they will be celebrating.because both the vikings and the colts finished 8-8 with identical strength of schedules, they had to have a televised coin flip today to determine where each would fall in the draft order for next month's nfl draft.the vikings won the toss, meaning they would get the 14th overall pick and the colts would get the 15th pick. but, of course, the vikings traded their first-rounder to the eagles to get quarterback sam bradford back in september. so technically the eagles were the biggest winners this afternoon.but that coin flip had ramifications beyond the first round, which is why the vikings came away disappointed. because the vikings, colts and ravens

vikings have a chance to exorcise two playoff demons


if you are the kind of vikings fan who is willing to look ahead more than one game and also can stomach looking back — and let's face it, both of those things aren't always recommended — you've probably noticed minnesota's playoff path this season has the potential to include not one but two ghosts of postseasons past.in ranking all of the potential vikings playoff opponents last week in order of least to most worthy of revenge, in fact, i couldn't even break a tie between the saints and falcons. how do you separate a pair of painful overtime losses in the nfc title game? all i knew for sure was that those two teams were at the top of the list.and, of course, the wild card round played out in the one way that could have the vikings facing both.it's vikings vs. saints on sunday. and if both

nfl exec: vikings going 'backwards'


in a recent espn piece grading the offseason moves for all 32 teams with the help of anonymous quotes from team executives, the vikings are graded at a c-minus, and one of those anonymous sources says the vikings "are starting to go backwards just a little bit."that's a reasonable opinion to hold considering the vikings went 3-8 in their final 11 games last season and still have plenty of roster questions. but here's where we also must try to decipher the motivations of whomever said that.was it someone from a rival team trying to create an early narrative that the vikings are on the decline? was it someone from an afc team who has less exposure to the vikings? was it someone repeating a consensus opinion from talking to other executives?nobody knows, so let's leave it at this: feel free t

should vikings go after ex-u wr decker?


should the vikings go after eric decker?the easy answer is "no.''the vikings have stefon diggs and adam thielen as starters, want laquon treadwell to become their no. 3 starter and have michael floyd as depth and a deep threat.here's what we should remember: with this same cast of receivers in place, vikings gm rick spielman went after alshon jeffery in free agency.decker is an excellent receiver who produces touchdowns. he would give the vikings more depth and quality at receiver, and he would lessen the necessity to force-feed treadwell into the lineup.remember, the vikings went 8-8 last year with no offensive line, no running game and two excruciatingly close losses to detroit.they're certainly not far from being a playoff team, and they may not be far from having a chance to win the nf

that game you've been thinking about since sunday night, when it became official the new orleans saints would be the vikings' first playoff opponent? mike zimmer was there.his son adam, now the vikings' linebackers coach, was in his fourth season as an assistant linebackers coach with the saints in 2009, when they secured the nfc's no. 1 seed before playing host to the vikings in the nfc championship game. but if you're looking for zimmer to say he was rooting for his son's team — and by extension, against his future employer — in what turned out to be the most painful playoff loss in recent vikings history, well, you're out of luck."i was just sitting there observing. i wasn't really rooting for anybody," zimmer said.

case keenum buys more time with big first half


before the vikings' game at washington, my notion was case keenum would be the starting quarterback for at least two games — barring injury — before the vikings might consider making a switch to teddy bridgewater. the idea was that keenum would have had to lose and play poorly against washington and the rams next week in order for a move to be made.in racking up 304 yards and four touchdown passes sunday — almost all the damage done as the vikings built a 35-17 lead early in the second half — keenum bought himself some more time. not even a pair of interceptions later that helped washington get closer in an eventual 38-30 vikings win should count too much against keenum.let's figure he earned at least two more starts — home against the rams, then at detroit. this five-game winning streak m

case keenum improves standing as vikings' no. 2 quarterback


seattle – the football appears to be bouncing case keenum's way for the job of vikings backup quarterback.keenum, entering his sixth nfl season, has been slotted as the no. 2 quarterback ahead of taylor heinicke in each of the vikings preseason games in buffalo and seattle. the vikings aren't ready to make a decision yet, according to coach mike zimmer, but keenum so far has provided the type of turnover-free security that comforts nfl teams."i think he has played pretty good," zimmer said. "i have to continue to look. i don't think that anything is decided, so we have some more time to figure that out."two more exhibitions — against the 49ers and dolphins — will help solidify the vikings' qb pecking order, which still does not include teddy bridgewater. he remains on the physically unable
