July 4th is behind us. The fireworks are past (at least my dog hopes that is the case). And now it is just a matter of surviving a hotter than hell July and waiting for the Vikings training camp to start. The Vikings will start reporting to TCO Performance Center during the last week of July, with the first practice open to the public taking place on July 30thin something called: Back Together Saturday. I am not sure if that kind of moniker is for the benefit of the players or the fans, but we are all looking forward to the Vikings getting back onto the field.
There are so many questions to be answered by the team this season, which will be the first under new general manager Kwesi Adolfo-Mensahand head coach Kevin O’Connell. If you have been following along here at theVikings Territory Breakdown podcast, we haven’t always embraced the touchy, feely kumbaya approach of Kwesi and KOC, but hey, if it works, how are you going to knock it?
We just won’t know for a while if it works. One would presume that the new regime came from successful programs (SF and LA, respectively, with a stop along the way in Cleveland for Kwesi) and that they would bring along some things that work with them. So, very soon, we can start determining how it is working. But until then, we have some questions. At least I, Joe Oberle, senior writer at Vikings Territory and purplePTSD have some. And we hope that Mark Craig from the Star Tribune and startribune.com has some answers. This week we will fire some of the following questions at him:
