Join us for a conversation on your Minnesota Vikings. Some of your favorite Climbing The Pocket personalities gather together with you to talk about how the Minnesota Vikings. Is the roster basically set? Can the defense actually be good with all the old guys on it? Do we over-rate Andre Patterson because Danielle Hunter? Yes, he helped turn Everson Griffen and Linval Joseph into studs, but neither were his draft picks. Do you think he’ll do the same with Michael Pierce and Dalvin Tomlinson? What about all those other Vikings drafted guys that are now “backups on other teams” as Mike Zimmer said? Then Nick will look at exceptions, good and disappointing. It is an odd year though, so we’re good, right?

Come join the conversation with the guys as they discuss the Vikings, these topics, and more. SKOL!

On tonight's show…

Let's discuss:

  • The state of Vikings roster heading into week 1
  • Is the defense primed to be a top tier unit?
  • Is Andre Patterson overrated?

  • Why the #Vikings could exceed expectations this year:

  • Blue-chip talent on both sides: Jefferson, Cook, Thielen; Smith, Kendricks, Hunter
  • Much improved in trenches w/ Udoh's breakout, young OL development & all the DL signings
  • Good scheme on offense & especially defense

  • Why they might disappoint:

  • Top-heavy roster means they need to stay healthy
  • Built to run the ball & stop the run, but it's a passing league
  • First-year OC/play caller
  • Little continuity with so many new faces
  • Special teams & pass protection still look below average

  • Fan with us!!! Come join the @Climb_ThePocket Network's and @DailyNorman's "In The Huddle" show with host Jason Brown @brownjayson, Nick Olson @NickOlsonNFL, Eric Eager @PFF_Eric, Myles Gorham @MylesGorham85, and producer Dave @Luft_Krigare from the truck.
