Despite a brilliant 85-yard touchdown run by RB Dalvin Cook, the Vikings’ starting offense looked awful against Arizona in front of the home crowd at US Bank Stadium.  And we thought Christian Ponder was done. The first-half performance of Vikings’ quarterback Kirk Cousins sure made it look like he was still out there, taking sacks, missing throws and having balls batted on every series he played. This is what Vikings’ fans waited for all off-season?   It reminded many of us two games of the 2018 season; the disaster of week 3 against the Buffalo Bills, and the tragedy of week 16, when the Vikings’ were embarrassed by the Chicago Bears. Both humiliating losses were at home. With a passing output of 24 yards against Arizona’s 192, and an eleven minute time of possession deficit, Cousins and the Vikings’ starting offense should have been at least handing out free cokes and hotdogs at halftime. Instead, they took a powder and let the reserves take over as Minnesota received the second-half kickoff.  On the first snap of their first possession, a fumbled snap. At US Bank Stadium, Vikings’ fans were starting to think about the yard work that needed to be done.

    I’m the wacknut around here ~ I never worry about the preseason ~ I will say if someone dosen’t look like they are playing well ~ Like Pat Elflein in the first two games ~ Not that anyone is going to be perfect on every play ~ Everyone is better than the average college player in the pros ~ But the preseason to me I like training camp or OTA’s ~ It for learning and trying new things to get all the kinks worked out ~ Cheers

    If this take is true then I am truly saddened. Things must get better for this team to improve. If we are in for 2018 again, I am going to become a Twins writer . . . (well, no I am not).
