Can the Vikings take the NFC North? They’ll also take a look at the rookies in a new segment of Rookie Roundup. Today’s topic: Andrew Booth. Then they’ll wrap the show with their biggest concern heading into the season and if Kirk can change the narrative around himself this season. SKOL!
Vikings Happy Hour is open with special guest Eric Eager. You all know that Eric is one of the leading data scientists at Pro Football Focus and also one of the early members at Climbing the Pocket. He will join the crew today to talk about how the Minnesota Vikings can win the NFC North division over the Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions, and the rebuilding Chicago Bears. There should be some interesting theories from the ease of schedule, the best wide receiver corps, going to a “pass first” Kevin O’Connell Los Angeles Rams’ style offense, the defense gelling under Ed Donatell’s Fangio style defense, having a better draft, and last but certainly not least, O’Connell unlocking quarterback Kirk Cousins to get him over the hump to be able to drive the Vikings to January and February wins.
Also on the show tonight, the Vikings Happy Hour crew grows as one of the founders of Climbing the Pocket, Myles Gorham joins the hosting team of Matt and Ryan. Welcome Myles to his new show home.

Can the Vikings Win the NFC North?

What’s your biggest concern for the Vikings this season?
