Sneak Peak At Vikings 2012 Schedule

Posted by Mike Wobschall on April 17, 2012 – 6:50 am

The NFL will release its full schedule of games for the 2012 season at 6:00 p.m. CT this evening, an exciting event in the NFL offseason because it’s the first tangible piece of the upcoming season. And we’re all excited for the upcoming season.

While we’re waiting on pins and needles for the dates and times of this year’s games, we already know the opponents and locations of those games. So while we wait for the rest of the equation, let’s review what we already know.

The Vikings home opponents for the 2012 season are: Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans.

The highlights of the home schedule include WR Randy Moss coming back to Minnesota as a member of the 49ers and several elite RBs visiting Mall of America Field – Chicago’s Matt Forte, San Francisco’s Frank Gore, Jacksonville’s Maurice Jones Drew and Tennessee’s Chris Johnson. There’s also a chance Trent Richardson, this year’s top RB prospect in the draft, visits if Tampa Bay pounces on him with the 5th overall pick.

The Vikings road opponents for the 2012 season are: Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Washington Redskins and St. Louis Rams.

The highlights of the road schedule include (presumably) seeing Andrew Luck in Indianapolis and Robert Griffin III in Washington, and a showdown (hopefully) between Arian Foster and Adrian Peterson in Houston. Also, potential cold-weather games are limited to just Chicago and Green Bay.

Stay tuned to vikings.com today because we’ll post the schedule as soon as it’s available, and we’ll also have reaction to the schedule from Radio Voice of the Vikings Paul Allen.

    Hope we can get GB early in the season before that offense gets to cranking up.
    The packers had the league’s worst pass rush last season and DE Neal is suspended for the first 4 games. S Nick Collins not likely to be on the field early on and the front seven might have a few rookies on the field.

    By the way Mike Wobschall should we not talk about what the NFL will do if the stadium does not get built and soon? Will they not subsidize the Vikings anymore?

    Everyone have a great day.

    This may be the last season for Vikes in Minnesota. Hope they can give us a great last season. Minnesota has some dumb ass people in their State Government. Minnesota’s loss will be another states gain. Lots of jobs, donations made to charitable organizations and taxes paid by the Vikings will be gone.

    MINNEAPOLIS — A new Minnesota Poll published Sunday finds Minnesotans prefer using new forms of gambling revenue instead of higher taxes if a new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings is to be built.

    This is not a dead issue there is still debate going on. Did you think it would be easy to get state money for a Stadium Deal? Let them work it out. NFL has put a stop on the Vikings moving anywhere for now, so it’s another wait and see. It is not time to lose hope. At least they are now down to finanical details and taking votes.

    Mn has the chance to keep a an ownership and franchise within an industry that is growing by leaps and bounds…In an nation wide economy that is still in a tail spin…

    The owner of this business is willing to pay the 3rd largest amount on record to build that stadium here in Minnesota…

    That money would pay 7,500 unemployed construction workers for 3 yrs…

    Construction workers that are now getting paid money in unemployment checks…

    Last night a MN politician board member asked the question…

    “How do we as Mn tax payers know we are getting a good deal” ???

    I thought it was politicians job to lure successful big business to your state…

    Not upset them enough to make them move after being here for 50 yrs paying a great deal of taxes within the state and generating a great deal of other revenue for business inside MPLS the state also…And having a future projection of bringing in a GREAT deal more…Being a thriving franchise…

    MN politician…”How is this not a good deal” ???….

    You complain the Vikings business may grow ???…Isn’t that what a politician is supposed to do and wave that “dream of success” as a carrot to bring a big business into your area ??…Don’t you want your business in your area to succeed ???…If the business makes money..Does not the surrounding area also ??…

    Doesn’t that kind of track record lure in more big business to your area ???

    I think its the Mn politicians turn to do the research now…The Vikings seem to have done more that their share until now…

    I like the fact it is pointed out the Vikings are not profitable. The politicians should be getting it. You can’t keep the Vikings in the Metrodome cause they are not making money at the facility. You need to build a facility where you can make money. These are no brainer issues. I am really suprised that elected officials and voters can’t understand this. You can’t make do with the Metrodome as the Team is not making a profit at that Venue. You build a new Venue and you get the imediate benefit of puttng people to work and long term dollars on a Team that is cash flow positive.

    The politicians who voted against a new Viking’s stadium are playing politics, all they care about is getting re-elected they could care less about what the people of Minnesota want. When the Viking’s move to another state I hope the people of Minnesota make note of the politicians names who cost the people of the state of Minnesota their football team and vote them out of office in the next election. These people are only doing what’s best for them not the people who elected them. That’s what politics are all about these days. We can only stop this kind of politics by voting for new people to replace them in the next election.

    @Paul M…. what are you talking about? Why in god’s name would we trade AP. He’s been amazing without anyone to block for him. How about this, how about we draft Kalil, trade up in the draft to get another interior lineman. Imagine what AP could have done behind a good O-line like the Jets, the make Sanchez look not as terrible as he really is, so just imagine if AP could run behind guys who could actually block. Or how about the other NY team, the Giants have slow ass Brandon Jacobs, but he has good number because he has guys who block for him, everytime AP runs the ball it looks like a Pee-Wee football game with everyone running at the guy with the ball (even on offense).

    For some of you that don’t think we can find a safety in the late rounds check out Justin Bethel.

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1136381-2012-nfl-draft-presbyterians-justin-bethel-is-a-sleeper

    In a cover 2 system the gabs that a SS and a FS cover are different but for the most part the safety positions can be interchangeable.

    If Harrison Smith is not available for us in round 2. We can find a quality safety that can play cover2.

    Brandon Taylor
    Markelle Martin
    Brandon Hardin
    Trenton Robinson
    Janzen Jackson
    Justin Bethel

    Are all upgrades to our secondary.

    1 guy I really like is Brandon Hardin from Oregon State. 6-3 217 ran a 4.36 at the combine and benched 225lbs 24times. He is under the radar because he missed the entire senior season because of an injury.. but came back to play well in the East West shrine game. Played corner in college but has the size to play safety. Brandon has 105 career total tackles and 1 int, but he has struggled with injuries. He is a special teamer standout prospect with upside and desirable makeup. Hardin is a rising draft prospect.

    Carl haven’t we learned our lesson with Tyrell Johnson? None of these small schools kids can replace Raymond or Sanford. Adding depth for injury purposes is the only benefit.

    The buck stops with guys like Allen,Jackson and Taylor with a much better competition level. Get one of the top 5-6 safeties or hang it up

    sandiamond, We will look for a safety option early in the draft, but I do have some reservations even about Harrison Smith. In our cover two as I understand it we need more of a free safety type who excels in coverage. I dont think Antonio Allen fits that position. Maybe our interest in him shows we are willing to change our scheme.

    I can still see us picking 2 free safeties or 1 of which can be converted from cornerback.

    Carl I have noticed Brandon Hardin rising up in mocks as high as the 4th round ! I like him alot too. And pretty good competition at Oregon State too.

    I really believe we will look to add 2 safeties by the 5th round.

    @Paul M that is just dumb. AP is coming off a serious ACL injury. No team is going to risk a boat load of high picks for him. Next year if he is able to perform at previous levels your idea could have merit. This year would be like giving him away. You point out that AP is no Herschel Walker and that is true, but no team is going to risk it’s future on a RB. What was learned by the Herschel Walker trade had nothing to do with the man, but everything to do with selling the farm to get one player to put you over the top. It was a lesson well learned across the league as how mediocre the Vikings were for years after the trade. You might as well wait with us all and see if Spielman and Fraizer can turn this around like the rest of us. You are also missing what AP means to this team since Kliensasser retired. AP is now the face of the Minneasota Vikings.

    Vikings4seven- I am from Indiana… so I think all this talk of moving to LA is just plain silly. Yes, a new stadium in LA is appealing but the fan base in Minnesota is special. The rivalry between GB and Chicago is worth something to the NFL to perserve.

    I may be wrong but I can’t see the NFL moving the Vikings to LA.
    LA has a history of failing to support a team in hard times. So, If your are the Wilfs or the NFL and you are investing a lot of money on a stadium… I think the smart investment is Minnesota.

    Just my outside of Minnesota opinion. But I think the loyalty and love Minnesota has for the Vikings is solid and strong. Why would the Wilfs or the NFL sacrifies love and loyalty for a city with a new stadium and bad history of poor fan support in bad times.

    Yes, these are bad financial times for Minnesota, but I admire the love and support the fans has shown to the Vikings.

    Stay true to the Vikings. I am proud of the fan base in Minnesota. And most of NFL fans base across the counrty WOULD NOT want to see the Vikings move to LA.

    Minnesota – Fill the seats and continue to show your love and passion for your team and good things will happen. NFL fans across the country are watching learning and admiring your effort!

    When the Passion dies… teams leave.

    When the NFL moves a team from a passionate fan, base it gets ugly! Fans all over this country don’t like it.

    The NFL blocked any moves this year and as long as progressive work is done on getting a stadium built I don’t see the Vikings moving. This deal may not get done this year, but there is next year. An owner can no longer just move the team in the night anymore. There needs to be a majority of owners to approve a move. If not this year maybe next year.

  37. By Carl K on Apr 17, 2012 | Reply

    ok, I need to spend more time proof reading my writing… but my point is
    Viking fans need to keep thier head up and keep fighting the good fight.
    Don’t make it easy on the NFL or the Wilfs to move this team.

    NEW Stadiums are overrated! You can buy a new stadium… but you can’t buy a passionate fan base!

    I have to agree with Carl K. I’m a devoted MINNESOTA Viking’s, fan and though I live in Montana, I want them to stay in Minnesota because that is and always should be there home. Viking fans are the best. I hope that this issue can come to that conclusion and that they remain The MINNESOTA VIKINGS!

    Sandiamond-
    Jamarca Sanford was pick by the Vikings with the 231 overall pick in the 2009 draft. He is 5’10 and can run a 4.56 forty. Sanford has marginal speed for coverage and lacks change of direction agility to stick with recievers… and too often appears satisfied with making the tackle after the reception. He is too small to play linebacker which is what he was in high school and in his early college career at Old Miss.

    Jamarca has a similar style as does Antonio Allen. In the box up on the line hybrid safety tackling machine.

    I find it hard to believe that we can not find a safety prospect in the 2012 draft after round 2 that would not be an upgrade or complement to Sanford style.

    WE MUST FIND SAFETY HELP. We can not give up on that postion if Harrison Smith gets drafted before we pick at #35..

    He has poor instincts and ability in pass coverage.

    ouch that is a fresh injury on Martin. The guy reminds me of Mark Barron very intimidating and a ferocious playmaker. Hopefully he will slip back in the draft and we could get him to compliment Sanford like Carl said

    As a long standing fan of the Vikings living here in sunny southern california I never get to see any vikings games at all. That being said, I would welcome them with open arms to come to SoCal. Its too bad hearing about the stadium issues you minnesotans are dealing with though.

    Sandi- The roll of a SS in a Cover 2 is much different than it is traditional schemes. In Cover 2 schemes the free safety (FS) and strong safety (SS) have deep responsibilities, each guarding half of the field.

    Cover 2 can be run from any 7-man defensive fronts such as the 3-4 and the 4-3. (It is difficult to implement Cover 2 from an 8-in-the-box front, because the strong safety or someone replacing him is usually the 8th man). For example, Cover 2 Man means 2 safeties have deep responsibility while the cornerbacks and linebackers follow their offensive a s s ig n m e n t in one-on-one coverage. Cover 2 Zone refers to 2 safeties with deep responsibility but now the CBs and LBs drop back into specific coverage zones where they defend p a s s e s only in their assigned area.

    So IMO, I think we have a traditional SS (J Sanford) playing a cover 2 system.
    NOT a good idea.

    so yes sandiamond, I do think the roll of a SS in a Tampa 2 scheme should be played more like a FS style. That is exactly why i think (if we stick with the cover 2) we can find an upgrade at the SS position in the late rounds if needed.

  83. By Carl K on Apr 17, 2012 | Reply

    I think it is wiser to try and take big CB and turn them into a cover 2 safety then it is to take a small linebacker (who excells in tackling) and turn them into a cover 2 safety.

    Carl we don’t use that cover scheme every play of every down just more so with 5 receiver sets and pass -happy teams. With 2 free safety types there would not be much run-stoppage and QB rush pressures. Sure a SS with mega skills would be ideal but who would it be? There is no miracle player available anywhere like that for the vikings

    Carl, I think the big question I have is why we are one of only 2 teams still primarily using cover2. The other being Chicago. Apparently most teams are using Man to Man coverage or Cover2Man with more success than we are getting. We need to covet pass defense players 1st at the safety position, and if a guy can play well in the box that is a bonus. NOT the other way around.

    We need speed, fluidity,a guy who can cover ground. Im not sure that Harrison Smith is ideal as a free safety. But he is worthy of being on the field somewhere…isnt he ????

    I think the truly skilled AND fast Dbacks tend to play corner in college so we may need to look at transitioning one of those guys like Trumaine Johnson to get the guy we need out of this years crop. We cant survive another year with Sanford and Raymond !! HELP !!!!!!!!!

    One of the biggest arguments that I am hearing against the stadium is “we don’t want to give handouts to billionaires.” That is also the MOST IGNORANT argument that anyone can make against it!

    Do people realize that, in this situation, the billionaire is going to be getting a much larger handout if we don’t get a stadium built in MN? California is ready and willing to put up much more of the cost for a stadium than plans than the team has agreed to with the state of MN. Plus, California is a much bigger market, making for more profits for the big bad billionaire.

    So this ignorant attempt to bully the big bad rich man is only going to make him richer. Are we really that stupid? Not only would we be helping him get more money, we’re removing a major source of income from out-of-state, and removing a major source of recreation for many in-state residents. So not building a stadium will only work against us! We are the ones who pay, and he walks off with a fatter wallet. Wake up people! Let’s get this done for our own interests rather than fight it in a futile attempt to bully the people who were born with a golden spoon in their mouths.

    Fix what’s wrong, or try to get even with the people who we simply don’t have the power to hurt? It’s up to us Minnesota. Let’s do something right for once!

    mnsoldier – We did fall. If we didn’t, the state wouldn’t have caved a few years after each team left to spend considerably more money, bringing in a team that has never been as popular or successful as its predecessor. It will happen with the Vikings too.

    Let’s make the prudent move for once and keep the Vikings in the state! We’ll just be spending more money for another Timberwolves/Wild fiascoe instead. Not that I’m a fan of Basketball or Hockey, but I am more interested in the Lakers and Stars than I ever would be in either of those teams. That would be much more true with the Vikings and whatever sîssy team the state brings in to replace them.

    Great point Sandiamond… I agree that the Vikings mix up the coverages and run multiple packages from the primary cover 2 scheme. Yes, I also agree there are times we need the SS to roll up on the LOS and help in run support.

    In an ideal world you would want your primary players to excell in as many different packages and formations as possible. It is much easier to read a teams defensive scheme if that team can only use certain players for certain schemes.

    So it would be nice to find a quality safety that is smart and athletic enough to play in multiple formations. And you are right on the money that it gets much harder to find that deeper in the draft.

    All I can say is when a player excells in 1 area but is also weak in another area… it becomes much easier to attack that weakness even if that teams tries to hide it, cover it up, or mix up the coverage.

    I would rather find a player who is just ok in all areas… than to draft a player like Sanford who excells in some areas but is very poor in another areas.

    A defense only has 11 guys… if a couple of those guys are weak in a certain area (it doesn’t matter how good they may be in other areas) a team will know how to attack and game plan for that weakness.

    I stand by my opinion that we can find a late round FS or CB (if we can’t land Barron or Harrison in the early rounds) that would be an upgrade to J Sanford at SS.

    People are overreacting, this doesn’t mean the Vikes are gone. Sure it set them back and it will almost surely not happen this session, but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen. A lot of bills fail mulitple times before both parties can agree and they finally pass; this bill is no different. Also, you can bet that after the elections, most of the politicians will be much more pliable. Right now they don’t want to do anything because anything can be spun against them. After elections they’ll be much more willing to cooperate. That being said, if the loyal Vikings fans like everyone here gives up on the team, then there is a good chance that they will move.

The legislators know that the Vikings have to play here for at least another year. They are going to stall as long as they can, or at least until after elections. Like I said in my last post, anything that the legislators do this close to elections can be spun against them, so most chose not to do anything. I am still 85% certain that a deal will get done in MN.

    Mark first off both parties are haters of middle class. In the old days it was just Republicans but now dems are just as much about the rich as reps

    second if you choose to have a rep vs dem debate I will take it to a new level … because reps have done some heinous things just in the last 4 years. not to mention b4 that

    why do the vikings and their fans suck so much at life?

    I know why the players do it – for money. But why do these “fans” suck so much at life too?

    Spencer – Your post left out week 17. My bet is that it’s a home game against Green Bay. I’ll take anyone up on that bet, and give you 10-1 odds!

    Shawn – I used to love those Jeopardy skits. They’re still priceless. Will Ferrell should try to make it into an entire movie. Then he’d finally have one worth going to!

    Here’s a skit of actual Jeopardy where they use the SNL Jeopardy as one of its categories, and makes all the other categories look like they’re going to be as ridiculously easy as SNL’s version does:

    To all the Fans and Voters in Minnesota: I have watched with great anticipation that there are Congressmen/women,and Senatorial persons that don’t want the Vikings to have a new stadium.

I MEAM AFTER ALL WHO WANTS A POLITICIAN THAT DOESN’T HAVE THE STATES BEST INTERESTS AT HEART NOR THE WORKERS OR CITIZENS NEEDS AT HEART. I SAY GET RID OF THEM VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE, NO IFS, ANDS, OR BUTS. GET RID OF THE DEAD WIEGHT POLITICIANS NOW. The One and Only PuckerTrucker!!!!!!!!Skol Fans
