Reacting To Vikings 2013 Regular Season Schedule

Posted by Mike Wobschall on April 18, 2013 – 4:30 pm

The NFL has released its 2013 schedule, which means the teams and locations on the Vikings slate have now been assigned dates and times. Here’s a game-by-game list of the games as well as a few of my thoughts (home games in BOLD).

Week 1 – at Detroit Lions
Week 2 – at Chicago Bears
The schedule-makers didn’t do the Vikings any favors with assigning back-to-back road division games to open the season, but with a Week 4 London game in the fold and schedule rules associated with that arrangement there’s really not much the NFL could do. This is a formidable challenge for the Vikings right out of the gate.

Week 3 – Cleveland Browns
A treat for Vikings fans in the home opener – Adrian Peterson vs. Trent Richardson.

ap-trent

Week 4 – Pittsburgh Steelers (London)
A much-anticipated opportunity for the Vikings as they join the NFL’s effort to expand the game globally. It’s technically a home game, but this marks the third time in the season’s first four weeks that the Vikings will be on the road.

Week 5 – BYE
Too early for a bye, but the NFL madates a bye week for teams following their game in London.

Week 6 – Carolina Panthers
A cool home game for the Vikings and fans, as Cam Newton and that flashy Panthers offense come to town. It would be a perfect time for the Vikings offense to click on all cylinders.

Week 7 – at NY Giants (Monday Night Football)
The Vikings first of two games (hopefully) at MetLife Stadium this season (site of Super Bowl XLVIII)

Week 8 – Green Bay Packers
Arguably the most challenging stretch of games in the schedule begins with a home tilt against border rival Green Bay.

Week 9 – at Dallas Cowboys
Week 10 – (Thursday) Washington Redskins (NFL Network)
Two games vs. NFC East opponents in the span of four days with a Sunday game in Dallas and a Thursday game on NFL Network against RG3 and the Redskins. RG3 should be healthy and full-speed by this point.

Week 11 – at Seattle Seahawks
Don’t need to write much to build the hype here. Darrell Bevell, Heath Farwell, Percy Harvin and Antoine Winfield go against their former team.

Week 12 – at Green Bay Packers
Not a bad time to travel to Lambeau Field.

Week 13 – Chicago Bears
Week 14 – at Baltimore Ravens
A road trip to see the defending Super Bowl champs in early December.

Week 15 – Philadelphia Eagles
Week 16 – at Cincinnati Bengals
A tougher-than-you-think matchup for the Vikings as they go on the road late in the season to play a tough Bengals squad.

Week 17 – Detroit Lions
An interesting choice to close Mall of America Field, but there’s a good chance it’s a game with meaning because it’s a division game and it’s the final game of the season.

    With a good draft, and hopefully a much improved passing game from 31st to the teens, AD’s 2500 yards target goal . . . Vikes will surprise again, perhaps deep in the playoffs. May the team have an awesome draft.

    That’s one brutal schedule. I am a full supporter of Ponder and I belief he’s the one, but this schedule would make even make Ray Lewis say, “Buckle your chin straps boys, this is gonna be one h3ll of a fight!!!

    I think the bye comes at the right time. Sure it’s early, but it’s right after 3 road games. It’ll give the guys a little bit of time to adjust to the jet lag and prepare to dominate the remainder of the season.

    You never know about divisional games, and this is based on last year’s results, but I dont see a real threat until week 7 NYG.

    I am confident we can win the north this year.

    Excited for our defense to go up against Cam, Wilson, and RG III.

    @Parody…good point. i usually see an early bye as a bad thing,but if we get rolling the right way and string some wins,good momentum is better than a late bye week anytime in my opinion..

    Greenbay’s defense is horrible, so is their O-line, They really just rely on Rodgers who is capable of carrying that team but I dont see their team making a run.

    I give Chicago about 5 wins next season. Cutler struggles with new systems. A total regime change in CHi town is going to mess them up.

    @john61,

    Theoretically in the NFL you could be anywhere from 6 wins to 16 wins each and every season.

    However, I see Frazier as a great coach who will get improvement out of the current bunch of players. They want to play for him!!!

  22. By Parody on Apr 18, 2013 | Reply

    No Freddy. No team has any wins right now. You cannot have a win without first playing the game.

    The right form of optimistic post would be “the Vikings are undefeated right now!”

  23. By Sir Greasy Panda on Apr 18, 2013 | Reply

    given the fact that we face several mobile QBs, and the fact RG III torched us last season, I want the Vikings to go defense with their first 2 picks.

    Get depth at corner and LB and the team looks pretty good right now. Wright will fit the WR and Simpson better be working on his hands. Don’t like the schedule but it doesn’t matter, capable team.

    I like Ponder, but I haven’t heard much about Ponder/football in the off season. Some may say it is the offseason and that is his time but, for a guy with all the questions about last year I hope he is working on his skills this offseason. He did get the wedding out of the way again.

  29. By Champ Henson on Apr 18, 2013 | Reply

    Tom L – I know what you mean. I’ve read that other qb’s are already working out with their receivers. Ponder has been very quiet, not even many comments from him about getting together with Jennings. I personaly don’t think his heart is in the game. He’s still on his honeymoon I’m afraid.

    John61,
    Keepin it real are ya? I am a half full glass type of guy, but this schedule is unreal. But if we can continue to improve on both sides of the ball ( passing game without ?) we will be tough.

    Panda – I agree with your opinion about receivers.

  32. By Tom L on Apr 18, 2013 | Reply

    I really hope Ponder gets his heart into it. Jennings can make him, what more could it take. Everyone has to respect AP and now Jennings, if he is into it the Vikes could be unstoppable.

    at first i was totally against it,but given the fact that we didn’t go after any MLBs in F/A ,i think Manti Te ‘O is going to fall to us and he’s gonna be our 23rd pick…

    @Tom L…last i heard Ponder was supposed to be reaching out to Brett Favre and working out with him,but i heard about that a couple of months ago…

    Tom L – we will see if Jennings can motivate (even though he shouldn’t have to). And, hopefully we won’t be seeing Jennings running along the sidelines yelling at Frazier about the qb play.

    It’s a tough schedule but that’s what will make us tougher towards the end of the season going into the playoffs. We need to battle with those tough teams and know what it takes to win if we want to go deep in the playoffs and hopefully reach the Super Bowl. I’m a believer and know that anything can happen any given Sunday.

    Lester Bagley, the Vikings’ point man on the new stadium, said the team had a deal with lawmakers and the Dayton administration last year that there would be no further state intrusion on revenue streams that benefit the team. Still, he said he hadn’t had time to review Lenczewski’s proposal and didn’t immediately say the team would oppose it.

    The Vikings franchise value will rise substantially after the stadium is built.
    The Viking owners can thank the tax payers for that. It’s a pretty good deal when you can use tax dollars to increase your personal profits and not share those profits with the people who enabled you to gain those profits. The only thing that makes sense is to sell viking stock like Green Bay does. They never seem to have funding issues.

    Like all Vikings fans I’ve gone through the schedule a dozen times by now and the best I could come up with was 10-6, and that is with us beating Pitt. in London, Wash. at the toilet dome AND winning 5 in a row to end the season…..
    HIGHLY UNLIKELY…..

    PLEASE let this report of “moving up” in rd.1 be subterfuge…..we need help in too many area’s to go and give away draft pick’s….EVEN FOR TAVON AUSTIN and I like him VERY much, GREAT PLAYER AND PERSON. (looks like anyway)

    Cordelle Patterson has HUGE BUST written ALL OVER HIM….If you saw the NFL network’s “Game Changer’s” he came across as NOTHING MORE than a CLOWN OF EPIC PROPORTION’S, and a not very bright one at that….

    This draft is SO IMPORTANT…yet it’s begging to scare me….

    The problem is that the league won’t allow any other team to sell stocks. The only reason Greenbay gets to do it is because they were doing before the rule change so the got “Grandfathered In.”

    “This legislation fundamentally changes the agreement the Vikings negotiated with the state of Minnesota,” said Lester Bagley, the Vikings vice president of public affairs and stadium development, after a hearing on the bill in the House Taxes Committee.

    The team put in an additional $50 million in the final stages of negotiation on the bill for the National Football League stadium, Bagley said, and “that commitment was in exchange for an assurance that there would be no further impacts on stadium revenues, including taxes on stadium revenues.”

    Cordarrelle Patterson

    WR

    Tennessee

    Patterson is physically strapped together with an intriguing, athletic skill-set that might land him in the top half of round one. He needs work on his routes and concentration to better separate and finish catches, but NFL scouts are even more concerned with what’s going on between his ears. Patterson’s interviews have “turned off” some teams, according to sources, coming off as “egotistical” to go along with questions about his mental aptitude to quickly digest and execute a NFL playbook. His physical upside is undeniable and he simply knows how to make plays with the ball in his hands. But doubts about the way he carries himself could cause Patterson to slip on draft day, probably out of the top 20 selections.

    I agree with the schedule comments… this will be a 7 to 9 win season. I think the Lions will have a huge improvement over last year. They have a huge opportunity in this draft. Their position kinda reminders me of the Vikes coming into this last season… 3-13 vs Det’s 4-12, lost majority of games by ~7 points or fewer and had injury issues (RB and secondary for Detroit).
    If you look at our schedule, the emphasis on teams we play this year are pass first teams. This means you should expect one of those 2 1st rounders to address our defensive secondary, or a trade back to get more opportunities to do so. We could get some big value this year by addressing LB or DL with 1st round and taking 2 BDs in second round. WR in 3rd and/or 4th.

    We should go with D for our 2 first round picks. Build up a D to be feared for a long time. 3 first rounders on D in 2 years sets us up with youthful talent for a long time. then use our surplus of picks to trade up in the 2nd and grab a WR, you know a few will fall out of the 1st especially if we don’t take one. 3 starters in the first two rounds, plus we would still have many picks left to build depth with.

  104. By WRHopkins2013 on Apr 19, 2013 | Reply

    I know…Expecting to hear plenty of resistance to my point of view on those 3 players…

    But the facts will not be known umtil next spring ???…Mt personal opinion is those 3 players are a few of the biggest risks in the draft..With very little reward on any of them…

    I trust their judgements…Totally…

    But I don’t think he is the LB they are after…WAY to much open love from Spielman going Te’o’s way…

    Spielman doesn’t work that way…Te’o and Ogletree were in with the 30 man visit the Vikings have each season…I expect both “not” to be out of the running to be drafted after getting “public attention”…

    Vikings are going to keep their selection priorities quiet…Not announce them all over the media..And take them out to dinner…That isn’t how Spielman works..

    Spielman went with all high character guys last year and how did that turn out for us? I expect that trend to continue.

    Why would someone want a knucklehead on their team? Didn’t we just go through a long drawn out drama with a player who was a total A-hole? Yeah, let’s do that again.

    vikings aren’t trading up for a WR, its called a smokescreen. I dont see any WR in the first having equal value except for maybe DeAndre Hopkins or Keenan Allen, but because of Allens knee, i’d push him into 2nd round value as well.

    Vikings need to go MLB/CB in the first, and the value should be there when the vikings pick at both 23 and 25. Players like Desmond Trufant, Arthur Brown, Alec Ogletree, or even Teo would be good value at 23 and 25. If for some reason the value isn’t right when the vikings are up, i expect them to try to trade down, or select a DT with good value.

    I do not want Tavon Austin or Cordarrelle Patterson on the vikings. Tavon Austin is a luxury player, not someone you build your offense around. The Vikings need a type of WR they can build around, sort of like the Falcons did with Roddie White. Cordarrelle Patterson has the physical tools to be that kind of player, but nothing else about him warrants it, and I can easily see him becoming a complete bust if he doesn’t get drafted by the right team and system.

    As for the LBs, I believe Alec Ogletree is the highest potential LB in the draft, but is better fit for an OLB spot in a 4-3, but could still be a good MLB. Then comes Arthur Brown who I believe is the best fit for the vikings MLB, hes got the best coverage of LBs in this draft, but he needs work in run stopping. With the vikings being in the pass-happy NFC north, they should look towards coverage as being more important than run stopping for our MLB, as our pass defense hasn’t cracked the top 15 in a looooooong time, and with the MLB’s weak coverage being a very large part of that. Anyone who has watched the vikings the past several years know they are extremely vulnerable in the middle of the field just behind the MLB….so many big plays came from that spot….anyway….
    Next would be Teo, and I can see him becoming a bust if hes in the wrong situation. Fortunately, I think the Vikings would be the best team for Teo to have success with, but I still am not sure if it will happen.

    For CBs, I think Desmond Trufant would be the best fit for the vikings as he is very talented in zone and man, hes very versatile and thats a good thing. He may be rated as 2nd round material by some, but I see him as a first round talent with lots of potential. If not Desmond Trufant, then I think the next best pick would be Jamar Taylor, another athletic versatile corner great in zone coverage. The only knock on Trufant is his lack of physicality when tackling, but that is something Jamar Taylor has…a physical presence, despite his size.

    For DTs, i think the vikings are hoping Ballard will be able to replace Kevin Williams, do I see the vikings going after a solid NT some time in the first 3 rounds instead, and maybe another DT later in the draft with high potential, in case Ballard falls flat. And K. Williams is still under contract, so going with a DT early in next years draft is also an option.
    2 Players come to mind, Jesse Williams (2nd round) or Brandon Williams (3rd round) can both turn into very solid NTs in the Pat Williams mold as a big space eater.

    Back on the subject of WRs, I think there is MUCH better value for #1-#2 type receivers in the 2nd-3rd rounds, with players like Justin Hunter (randy moss type, but his hands can be sketchy at times), Robert Woods (similar to Greg Jennings, can play slot or outside, great route runner and good hands), Quinton Patton (a lesser DeAndre Hopkins with more speed) or Markus Wheaton (field stretcher / Mike Wallace type of player).Any one of those players could develop into very good starters, and most, if not all, of them, should be available midway through the 2nd round. If theres someone the vikings really like that might go before they pick at 52, they could put in a 4th or 5th round pick to move up several spots. Players like Justin Hunter or Robert Woods might not be there at 52, so I could see the vikings making a move to select either of them.

    England loves the Vikings. They should get a lot of support in that game. I know 3 fans from Sweden that said they have a whole group that are going to go support them as well. It would be a fun game to see.

    Hopkins wasn’t around for that hotel fiasco…

    __________________

    DeAndre Hopkins – WR – Player ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the trashed Indianapolis hotel room at February’s Combine belonged to Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins and Rutgers WR Mark Harrison.
    Yahoo Sports reported Monday that the trashed hotel room was littered with “urine and feces scattered about the bathroom, toothpaste on the mirror and garbage strewn about the room.” Hopkins and Harrison have denied their involvement, and one GM told FOX Sports’ Alex Marvez that Hopkins had left the room “several hours” before it was destroyed. While the incident was embarrassing to Combine organizers, we’re not sure it’ll affect Hopkins or Harrison’s draft stock. Hopkins is a potential first-round pick. Harrison is a likely mid-rounder with 4.46 speed at a rocked-up 6-foot-3 and 231 pounds.

    Arthur Brown – LB – Player NFL Draft insider Tony Pauline has heard from “several people on the inside” that Kansas State LB Arthur Brown is a “definite” first-round pick.

    Pauline suggests Brown’s first-round presence would knock Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o and/or LSU’s Kevin Minter into the second frame. Brown is definitely a better player than Te’o, and he is more explosive than Minter. He’s a prime candidate to be drafted at all of the spots popularly suggested for Te’o: The Giants at No. 19, Bears at 20, Vikings at Nos. 23 and 25, and Ravens at 32d overall.

    My mock draft according to who is available at each selection for the Vikings based on DRAFTTEK’s 7 round mock draft.

    (I know most will rip this mock draft and dislike it. I also understand it’s a little unfair to choose players when I already know what has happened. Anyways, I really think a draft like this would be great for the Vikings.)

    1st(a) = DE — Margus Hunt — SMU
    1st(b) = S — Eric Reid — LSU
    2nd = DT — Brandon Williams — Missouri Southern
    3rd = WR — Da’Rick Rodgers — Tennessee/Tech
    4th(a) = CB — Tyrann Mathieu — LSU
    4th(b) = LB — A.J. Klein — Iowa State
    5th = WR — Marquess Wilson — Washington State
    6th = P — Ryan Allen — Louisiana Tech
    7th(a) = WR — Mark Harrison — Rutgers
    7th(b) = LB — Jordan Campbell — New Mexico Highlands
    7th(c) = WR — Courtney Gardner — Sierra College

    Im still for rule of law and I have lost a son. So suk it. You sheep fall for the media propaganda hook line and sinker. Then you know youre being lied to but youre so brainwashed you have the nerve to talk smack to people demanding the truth? Sad- very sad. Our country is doomed. Truth means nothing to people like you. Youre either for the Constitution or you are not … I am.

    Truth, maybe they feel ‘Americans can’t handle the truth’.
    Or since every word of the ‘truth’ would be dissected, misread, reassembled and misinterpreted; truth is in the reader. Security cannot trust the media. It is easy for the media to say what they ‘read’ and if they ‘misread’ it, it just goes away for the next ‘reading’.
    It looks like I have the same feelings about the media (we call it slants on a story) as you do about the government lies.
    If we assume everyone is lying, there is no comfort in life. H3ll, look at sports with manipulation terms (?lies?maybe) to confuse the opponent. Should we hate sports or watch, listen and bust em.

    The fact 4500 US soldier’s were sacrificed in Iraq for a reason(truth) we still do not know but you want to ask me who’s side Im on? Whose side are you on? Clearly not the American side. Those men and women were killed in Iraq for WMDs? Yea I have taken the right side but am very concerned with the side you have chosen.

    Then knowing this whole war on an emotional state began with a lie you will base all future accusations on the original lie. Yes I demand trials. I demand truth. I demand we get back to the Constitution.

    The evidence would be supported or rejected by the ‘reader’.

  204. By Shawn on Apr 20, 2013 | Reply

    No thats part of the problem. Most politicians are lawyers or business men and both are wordsmiths and master’s of deception. In both professions they are trying to get an audience to buy what they want to sell. One sells a product, sometimes the product is snake oil and the other sells a story. When they dont start with a truth we never know the truth.

    Truth can not be misinterpreted. 2+2=4 it doesnt change because its true.

    Shawn, I support the US, its constitution and the people that run it. (maybe not Obama, to many exec orders shows a lack of team player). I only point our that everyone wants the truth, but some people insist on telling lies that are perceived as truth. Did a bad guy confess a lie/perceived as truth that led us to Iraq???? Life is to short to beat on the past, remember, morn, and remember (with truth and not slants) to not do it again. Find and punish the perpetrators but stop wasting time on the pawns of the perpetrators.

    Yea I heard that but I never saw the person only heard it. He said she said means nothing to me. Put the guy on TV. Then when they said there was a firefight … doesnt every cop car have video? where is the video?

    Reporters said someone said that they said they did it. That means nothing to me.

    He said she said her cousins sisters friend talked to a woman whose brother knew of a time that he heard someone say …

  212. By Shawn on Apr 20, 2013 | Reply

    BTW I dont doubt they did it … what I question is what role the FBI had. Were they patsies? The mother said the FBI was with them for 3-5 years … History repeats itself. Lee Harvey Oswald …. ? A FBI patsy who was killed before truth could be told and then the killer was killed …. Now we know about other mysterious deaths surrounding JFK.

    “everybody saw it on t v and maybe he does not want his face on t v”

    Umm what? if he doesnt want his face on TV how did you see it?

    If you are talking about the firefight I saw the last one but not the one after the alleged car chase. When the young one ran over his brother.

    OK look you can have the last word … Im done. I could argue all day but as we know others get annoyed with non football debates.

    So go ahead and say whatever and I will let you have last word.

    I am Retired Combat Veteran, was in 3 wars. While doing my Military Duty.

    I like to think that I supported defending the Constituion of The United States.
    Which is intended for the Citizens of the United States, not for the Foreign dogs

    Ya know, I am losing my respect for Aaron Rogers. His stupid comment when asked about Jennings and he has a response of ‘who’ is BS. Watching the 2010 game against Arizona and without Jennings, Rogers never would have got that game to OT, he will never be a Favre. Packer or not his skills DID deserve respect but comments are taking that away.

    they’re guilty! if they weren’t they would have surrendered and pleaded their case instead of getting into a shootout gun fire fight with the police and FBI. Don’t listen to a word their parents say.
