Souhan's Mailbag: Will the Vikings ever win the Super Bowl?

Vikings quarterbacks Sean Mannion (4), Kyle Sloter (1), Kirk Cousins (8), and Jake Browning (3), took part in drills during training camp last year.

One reader has a question about Bud Grant's wisdom. Others ask Jim Souhan about Wild prospects, Wolves management and Springsteen lyrics.


Souhan: Hunter, Kendricks and the challenge

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Danielle Hunter sacked New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees forcing a fumble in the fourth quarter Jan. 5.

Souhan: Vikings-49ers game brings memories of Burns and Walsh

The West Coast offense?


Souhan: Vikings' playoff path is fascinating

Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph celebrated a score in the second half of an NFL wild-card playoff football game against the Saints on Sunday.

Now that the Patriots appear to finally be in decline, are there any teams left in the NFL that scare you?


Souhan postgame reaction: Why were the Saints such a mess?

Two takeaways from Sunday's game.

Pregame post from the stadium


Souhan: It's Boone's big chance tonight against Green Bay

Vikings running back Mike Boone

He may not be as talented as Dalvin Cook or even Alexander Mattison, but Mike Boone is an explosive athlete with fresh legs.Will he have a big game?

Souhan: Vikings need to contain Wilson, minimize Seattle's big plays

Everson Griffen sacked Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson during the 2015 playoff game that the Seahawks won 10-9.

My guess is that the Vikings will try to play Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson the way they did in the 2015 playoff game at TCF Bank Stadium, which worked well until the fourth quarter.


What I'm watching for: Minnesota Vikings vs. Denver Broncos

Vikings could be 8-3 heading into the bye


Souhan: Can the Vikings do without prime players tonight at Dallas?

Linval Joseph (98)

Without nose tackle Linval Joseph, can a Vikings defensive line otherwise built for speed handle the power rushing of the Cowboys? And how will it be without Adam Thielen catching passes?


Souhan pregame: Washington rookie McLaurin will be a handful for Vikings defense

Washington wide receiver Terry McLaurin catches a pass for a touchdown against the Dolphins on Oct. 13

In six games with a dysfunctional offense Terry McLaurin has caught 24 passes for 419 yards and five touchdowns. Only two receivers have more touchdowns - Adam Thielen and Chris Godwin.
