Minnesota Vikings Moral Victory Rankings, Week 3


The scoreboard says the Vikings lost Sunday to the Saints, but sometimes it’s not as simple as wins and losses. Sometimes when you lose you really win.

The Vikings fell to 1-2 but the future looks brighter than ever. It makes perfect sense. It really does.

10.Adrian Peterson

Lamenting the loss of Peterson feels so middle-of-last-week. It’s a passing league now anyway, you don’t need a big-time running back. The Vikings will be better off without him and his bloated contract.

I respect the man but condemn the action. That’s how I roll. #Faith

9. Cordarrelle Patterson

Look, eventually Patterson will become a big part of this offense. I swear. It just takes time. #Patience

8. Matt Cassel

He held down the fort until the cavalry could arrive. Mad props Matt. You gave your body to the cause. There’s a place for you in Vikings lore alongside Jeff George, Gus Frerotte and Brad Johnson. #Respect

7. Chad Greenway

Played with a broken hand? Never question the man’s toughness.

Question his wheels if you want. Question his coverage. Question his ability to get off blocks. But never doubt the heart. #Courage

6. Brandon Fusco

Okay I get it now. I really do.


5. Screw the Saints

I just wanted to drop this in here. Eff this team. #ScrewDat

4. Captain Munnerlyn

I guess you can’t “suplex” the quarterback. Noted. #TheTrueCaptain

3. Mike Zimmer

The final score should have been 40-9. But Zim wouldn’t let that happen. He only has about two NFL-quality DBs right now and he still frustrated Drew Brees and shut down the Saints enough to keep the Vikings in the game. #Blitzmaster

2. Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy Bridgewater kept his head out there and showed that he is a true leader of men. Two gloves, one heart. #ItBegins

1. The fans

We got a coach and a quarterback. Now all we need is a bunch more players and a stadium. #SKOLVIKINGS
