Is this finally the Vikings Big Year?

In the past few years, the Minnesota Vikings have always been labeled as a sleeper team. But they have always came up short of the big goal… the Super Bowl. Even with the amount of talent they had acquired and players drafted, they just weren’t enough. Can they finally be enough this year?

New Management
Under new Minnesota Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell, the Vikings are finally looking towards this year finally being their year. Last year he was the Offensive Coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams and we all know how that turned out with the Rams eventually winning the Super Bowl. As the Vikings have been coached under a defensive minded coach over the past few years from Mike Zimmer, it will be great to see the O’Connell brings to the table with his offensive mindset.

As every Vikings fan is excited about how the new coaching staff will bring new ideas to the table, let’s look at the players that will be able make these ideas come to life and take us the distance. Kirk Cousins is coming off a great year with 4,221 yards, 33 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions; while Justin Jefferson is coming off a monster year of 1,616 yards and 10 touchdowns. The rest of the Vikings offense is equally as scary but fans are excited to see how O’Connell uses Justin Jefferson’s potential in his junior year after last year with Cooper Kupp.

With the return of Irv Smith Jr. and Adam Thielen (following his surgery last year) the Vikings offense is going to be very scary. On the other side of the field, the Vikings defense is looking to fill in some holes from last year especially within the secondary. Drafting Lewis Cine and Andrew Booth Jr. were 2 of the most underrated picks that will improve the Vikings secondary greatly. As well as the additions of Za’Darius Smith and Jordan Hicks in free agency, the talent on this team is undeniable.

  The Minnesota Vikings are looking at a very good season as long as the team stays healthy. This team will be scary and might even end up in the Super Bowl. Will this year finally be the Vikings big year?
