NFL.com Team-By-Team Previews

Posted by Mike Wobschall on September 2, 2009 – 8:44 am

NFL.com has come out with it’s 2009 team-by-team preview, and the bit is quite extensive. They’ve devoted an entire page for each NFL team, and that page includes links to stats, schedules and tickets, as well as “fearless predictions,” analysis on one individual player, videos, a quote from a player, and several other bits of information.

You can view the Vikings page by clicking here.

Three of NFL.com’s contributors forecast a 2nd place finish in the NFC North for the Vikings, while Bucky Brooks predicts a disappointing 3rd place finish and Pat Kirwan sees an 11-5 record to go along with a division championship.

The individual player analysis features LB E.J. Henderson, who is described as a “ferocious headhunter with outstanding instincts who excels at blowing up runs between the tackles.” The analysis also characterizes Henderson as an “unsung hero” in the Vikings defense whose return makes the unit “impenetrable” against the run.

Also included in the team-by-team previews is a video that highlights 5 potential breakout players from each division. For the NFC North, Brooks and NFL.com forecast breakout seasons for 2 Vikings – Henderson and TE Visanthe Shiancoe.

    I read the article earlier. The ranking predictions were the most disturbing considering 4 of the 5 put us in 2nd or worse. I would like to agree with Pat Kirwan’s predictions, but there is no arguing the old “Black and Blue” will be the most hotly contested division the NFL has this year. The Vikings divisional rank come year end is definitely going to boil down to how well we perform against our division rivals. I think we can all agree that Detroit is not a real contender, but Chicago and Green Bay are going to be real challenges. Both at home and away. I am trully excited about the Vikings this year. I only pray they live up to my expectations and take us deep into the playoffs and a shot at “The Show”. It’s time for a title. Go Vikes!! Make me proud to be a Minnesotan.

    Who is Bucky Brooks? This guy has the Vikings doing worse with more weapons than ever and a solid defense? The only team that has a chance in the division is the Packers. I expect the Vikings to SPANK them twice this year.

    Hey guys glad you got pops, I think the Vikes’ top the north but we are gonna burn you at the NFC championship again. Our O line is gonna split some heads while Turner drags your line backers into the inzone.
