Teddy Bridgewater's First Start: What Does it Mean?

TBWWWBD 900x241(GET IT?!)

The Teddy Bridgewater era is here...it's officially here! When many fans were already calling for Bridgewater to get his chance over veteran Matt Cassel, they get their wish, by vertue of injury.

What can we expect from Bridgewater as he takes control of the offense, likely for good? Are fans going to chalk up the season as "lost" because of a combination of injuries and a tough schedule? Are they going to be excited to watch "Teddy Two Gloves" provide some magic like previous rookie quarterbacks have?

Here's a question I have: Why is Teddy Bridgewater getting so much praise as an unproven rookie, when Christian Ponder got the exact opposite treatment (even before he played himself out of a job)? I have a theory.


Peterson, Gone. Simpson, Gone. Is There Still a Game on Sunday?!

072714.S.STP .Vikings-Defense 1

The way the last week has gone, people seem to forget there's still a very meaningful game this weekend between the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints. By now, every knows that Adrian Peterson is out and Jerome Simpson has been cut (seriously guy, get some help). But lets not lose focus on why we love the name on the front of the jersey, versus the name the on the back...THE FOOTBALL GAME. Real, american, football. It'll be there Sunday, and we'll be waiting.

How pivotal is this game for the Vikings? My opinion may surprise you.


Minnesota Vikings vs New Orleans Saints and Some History

Saints vs Vikings

After a tumultuous week of football (mostly non football related news), I'm ready to get back to meat and potatoes of the sport we all love so much. The Minnesota Vikings visit the New Orleans Saints in Week 3 and both teams come in with their own struggles.

The Vikings will look to win their second road game of the 2014 season after finishing 0-7-1 during the 2013 season. The Saints, surprisingly, will be in search of their first victory of the season.

Here's a look at the history between the Vikings and the Saints:

Adrian Peterson Indicted on Child Abuse Charges in Houston

AP Child Abuse

This (potentially) isn't good news. The Minnesota Vikings' Adrian Peterson has been indicted on child abuse charges in Houston, Texas. According to TMZ, Fox 26 in Houston and Jay Glazer, this appears to be an official report. You can see the Fox 26 report here. Peterson now has to turn himself in, thus putting his status in jeopardy for Sunday's game. At this point, the details are pretty week (but, naturally, the rumors are red hot)...so we need to let this play out.

What will be interesting to see, in regards to recent news with Ray Rice and co., is how the NFL will react. Stay tuned for a piece from me on the NFL and what happens with domestic (and now child) abuse/violence moving forward.

More on the Peterson situation as it's released.

UPDATED: Peterson allegedly struck his 4 year old son (not 11 year old, as initially rumored) with a switch. To what extent, we don't know, but the investigation has been in the works for a while and Peterson has been aware. Stay tuned.

UPDATED 5:18pm CST: Pictures of the alleged injuries have been obtained and released, supposedly from the Houston Police Department. Via CBS Minneapolis
