Сообщение In Mike Zimmer’s five seasons in Minnesota 
Super Bowl Olisaemeka Udoh Jersey , the Vikings employed four kickers who made 80.6 percent of their field goals and 90.3 percent of their extra points.The Vikings continue to search for an answer as Zimmer enters his sixth season.“I think part of it is we allow them to — especially young guys — make some mistakes, make sure they understand we’re behind them,” Zimmer said. “I’ve also really been thinking hard about trying to get someone [to help the team’s kicker]. These golfers have swing coaches. Everybody’s got coaches now who do these things. So I’ve been thinking really, really hard about trying to find a true kickers coach, where that’s all he does.”The Buccaneers have former NFL kicker Chris Boniol to work with their kicker, but few teams employ a true specialist coach.Former NFL kicker Michael Husted is among the private kicking coaches.“Most of them are former kickers you’re talking to or things like that,” Zimmer said. “We’ll just have to see if I can find the right one. Those guys have to fit in with the rest of the staff, too.”The Vikings gave up on Daniel Carlson too soon after drafting him in the fifth round last year. He went 1-for-4 in two games with Minnesota in 2018 but finished the season going 16-of-17 in 10 games with Oakland.Dan Bailey, who once was the NFL’s all-time most accurate kicker Garrett Bradbury Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , finished up the season with the Vikings and was only 21-of-28 on field goals and 30-of-31 on extra points.“Probably too much,” Zimmer said when asked how much he thinks about the kicking game. “You sit there, and you think about we missed a 27-yard field goal [by Blair Walsh] in Seattle in the [2015] playoffs. Then, this happens. Then, you bring a guy in, and he misses an extra point. Then, maybe you’re a little bit more jumpy than maybe you should be, I think. It’s like everything else you might overreact.” It’s the off-season and sometimes we just need to fill the void with discussion." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteDaily Norsemana Minnesota Vikings communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsLibraryVikingsOddsShopAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Vikings 2018 SeasonVikings 2019 OffseasonU.S. Bank StadiumMinnesota Vikings PodcastsWhich non-divisional foe causes the biggest challenge for the Vikings?New,36commentsIt’s the off-season and sometimes we just need to fill the void with discussion. CDTShareTweetShareShareWhich non-divisional foe causes the biggest challenge for the Vikings?David Berding-USA TODAY SportsFinally Minnesota Vikings Jerseys 2019 , OTAs are in full swing, June is here, the humidity is starting to stick and I get to sit inside and write about football to avoid becoming a lobster all summer. Sometimes one gets writer’s block and struggles to find something to write about. This has been in my head for awhile and I figured what better way than to turn this into a discussion for the readers to get involved in. The Minnesota Vikings have the 10th hardest schedule in the league, based off a combined opponents record of 130-124-2 (.512). Minnesota will play five non-divisional foes that participated in the playoffs last season. The Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles and Los Angeles Chargers all lost in its respective divisional round match-ups. The Seattle Seahawks lost in the wildcard round. The team that went the deepest though were the Kansas City Chiefs, who lost in the AFC Conference Championship game against the New England Patriots. It’s quite obvious to look at the Chiefs and be like, “yeah, Andy Reid and KC will be tough.” Keep in mind that Kansas City’s offense was ranked first for points and yards last season. Once again the offense will be led by 2018 All-Pro Offensive Player of the Year and MVP Patrick Mahomes.Success was more challenging on the defensive side of the ball. The defense finished the season 24th in points against (26.3 ppg) and 31st in total yards allowed. Although the defense struggled last season, it’s noted after the off-season moves Garrett Bradbury Jersey Cheap , that the Chiefs want to be consistent on both sides of the ball this year. Kansas City knew it was time to change things up on defense. The Chiefs decided to move on from 35-year-old linebacker Derrick Johnson and 34-year-old defensive end Tamba Hali during the 2018 off-season. Clearly the team missed those two players last season, so Kansas City grabbed defensive end Frank Clark to help fill the void of Hali this off-season. The 25-year-old recorded 41 tackles and managed a career-high 13 sacks last season with the Seahawks. To supplement Clark, the Chiefs also added 28-year-old Alex Okafor. The ex-New Orleans Saints defensive end tallied four sacks and 36 tackles last season. One player who earned his keep for KC in 2018 was third-year defensive end Chris Jones. The 24-year-old recorded 15.5 sacks in 2018. The Chiefs also added some needed depth at the cornerback position by signing former-Redskin and Packer Bashaud Breeland. The six-year veteran played seven games with Green Bay last season. He tallied two interceptions and 19 tackles.Kansas City could have another stellar season, especially if both sides get rolling. This will be a solid mid-season challenge for the Vikings come November. Do y’all agree on KC being the most non-divisional challenge for Minnesota? Why or why not? If not, who do y’all got?
