Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

The third game of the Thanksgiving schedule could be coming into focus. After a report earlier this week that the two early holiday games would include Bears-Lions and Dolphins-Cowboys, we may have an idea of the prime time matchup.

Via Michael Rand of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, an Eagles trip to play the Vikings appears to be the late game of the three.

John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal (who reported the first two games) said during a SI media podcast with Jimmy Traina what he had heard about the game. “I didn’t actually write about this but I have heard that Minnesota vs. Philadelphia is one that’s in play,” Ourand said. “It’s not dead set, but I’m told that it’s pretty likely.”

The Vikings have never hosted a Thanksgiving game, though they’ve played in eight of them against either the Lions or the Cowboys.

Or a LB? Thought they had him all over the place in camp.

The most optimistic hopes for him were that he would be the next John Randle. The team tried him at LBer but that didn't stick iirc. Can an undersized DT cause problems for an offense that would make him valuable in a Mike Zimmer defense? I have my doubts but it would be great to see it happen.

Ade Aruna is the long-odds DE hope the team picked up late in the draft last year. Again, it would be great to see this player come back and become valuable to the defense.

It is nice to have a couple bodies around for which one can have long-odds hope. That is what it is though. I give Ifeadi Odenigbo better odds of being successful for the Vikings and he has already been cut a few times in his young career.
