Minnesota Vikings Tickets

Minnesota Vikings tickets are on sale to catch a great game at the Mall of America Field at the Metrodome. This may be a ridiculous name for a football venue, but the team is ready to finish the 2011 Vikings schedule with rookie Christian Ponder starting in place of Donovan McNabb. TheSeats has the Viking tickets for the rest of the NFL season, so find a great seat.

The Minnesota Vikings began the season with a hired gun at quarterback, but the hired gun proved ineffective and now the rookie is in place behind center. Coach Leslie Frazier has decided Christian Ponder could use some starting experience as it became quite evident the 2011 season proved to be lost. Ponder had a decent first start and should be interesting to watch as the season continues.

Adrian Peterson is again leading the NFL in rushing, but this is the aerial age and his phenomenal efforts are being wasted on a football team competing for the first pick in the draft. Vikings tickets would be available for a winner just a decade ago. The Vikes can run the football and stop the run. Heck, McNabb would even be a perfect game manager. However, the timing is not right and the porous pass defense and developing passing attack are not enough to win the NFC North.

Ponder will at least be given a chance to develop a relationship with Percy Harvin and Visanthe Shiancoe over the next few games. Really, Minnesota is playing for next season at this point. Next year a more seasoned quarterback, a stellar running back, and a dominant defensive line could thrash the NFC North and even cause a few teams to stumble in the postseason.

Minnesota Vikings History

The second expansion team in the NFL, the Vikings joined the NFL in 1961 and won one NFL championship in 1969. Minnesota also has three more conference championships and 17 more division titles. The most dominant era for this franchise came in the 1970s. Alan Page, Carl Eller, Jim Marshall, and Gary Larsen formed the Purple People Eaters, one of the most dangerous defensive front fours in history. Quarterback Frank Tarkenton proved a prolific passer, but the Vikings could never turn one of its nine division title from 1970 to 1980 into a Super Bowl win. Minnesota lost three Super Bowls instead and saw its window close until the late 1990s.

Quarterback Randall Cunningham, running back Robert Smith, and wide receiver Randy Moss were three dangerous weapons on the same team in 1998. The highest scoring team in the NFL, the football team went 15-1 and was expected to play in the Super Bowl. However, the Atlanta Falcons beat them in overtime in the NFC Championship game and the window closed.

Minnesota Vikings tickets have been available for a team built around Adrian Peterson and a stellar defensive line since 2007. Though things are changing, expect the front office to return to what they know, develop Chris Ponder at quarterback and rebuild its defensive line in an attempt to challenge the Packers in the NFC North.
