Over the last three days, the Minnesota Vikings have been participating in their yearly team mini-camp. Here are a few observations we made over the team’s offseason so far.
When the season ended earlier this year, the Minnesota Vikings knew that they had potential to achieve a lot more than most thought. Coming into the 2015 season, the Minnesota Vikings were projected to win eight games. With Adrian Peterson coming back, Teddy Bridgewater progressing, and a young up and coming defense, the team knew that they had the chance to show everyone that they were ready to take the next step.
As mentioned in an article written a couple weeks back, the Minnesota Vikings are favored in all but three games for the upcoming season. People are starting to take notice of the talent that this team holds.
Addressing the team’s major needs so far throughout the offseason, offensive line help, and wide receiver, the Vikings look ready to take the another step forward from last season’s first-round playoff loss. Of course, last year’s playoff loss was due to unfortunate events, but some would say the team was not ready to make a deep playoff run at that time. This year they look ready.

From the coaching staff and front office, down to the players, this team is built to be a contender for the next few years if not longer than that. The coaching staff instills a blue collar, hard work attitude within the team. You can tell that the team has been working hard this offseason to come out and show everyone that they are ready to become one of the NFL’s elite rosters.
Being right in the middle of the NFL offseason, fans are starting to feel the hype that surrounds this team. With the resigning of major free agents and some additions to major areas of need, this team looks poised to improve on the few areas that they struggled in last season, and overall improve in areas that they were already impressive in.
