Minnesota Vikings Team Info
The times are changing for Vikings fans and that news should come as relief aftering suffering through trauma after trauma in the last few seasons. To begin with, Vikings owner Zygi Wilf brought in a new head coach to pick up the pieces and install a sense of order in the franchise. Brad Childress' experience should serve him well in rebuilding a Minnesota franchise that was left in shambles. For the fans that treasure their Vikings and pack the stadium every home game, the changes will be obvious and appreciated.
The first thing Childress did was clean house and populate the roster with a bevy of new faces. Guards Steve Hutchison. and Artis Hicks and running back, Chester Taylor, longtime backup to Jamal Lewis will be paired with new fullback Tony Richardson. And on defense, linebacker Ben Leber and safety Tank Williams will help revitalize an underachieving squad.
But don’t get the idea that the Vikings were a bad team. Despite the endless distractions that occurred under Mike Tice, the Vikings still posted a winning season, going 9-7. The new additions only strengthen an already good football team, perhaps elevating them into contention for an NFC North title and a shot at the Playoffs.
The most obvious change of course will be at quarterback. Shortly after arriving in Minnesota, Childress realized that Daunte Culpepper no longer fit the team’s needs. Wanting to avoid the distractions of a bad attitude he witnessed firsthand with T.O., Childress traded Culpepper and placed his offense into the capable hands of 38 year old Brad Johnson. Johnson, whose strongest assets are accuracy, patience, and leadership, is the perfect choice for a team badly in need of stability. As insurance, Childress brought along QB Mike McMahon to be the backup. Long term, the Vikings are looking to Tarvaris Jackson, drafted in the second round, to develop into the strong-armed weapon of the future.
At running back, Taylor fits the mold of a West Coast runner. He can run inside and has soft hands, making him versatile enough to be a receiving threat out of the backfield. Wide receiver is still up for grabs. Koren Robinson is the likely choice to be #1. Robinson is an elusive runner. Troy Williamson, the Vikings 1st round draft choice, is expected to elevate his game in his second year, while Travis Taylor acts as a possession receiver.
While few new head coaches can be expected to carry their team to the top in their first year, Vikings faithful may be one of the lucky few to see that happen.
