GMG’s Two Old Bloggers - Injuries, Controversy & PS1 Vikings vs Broncos

What should we expect to see in the first preseason game of the 2021 campaign?

Darren and Dave are selecting 3 topics, coming out of this last week of the Minnesota Vikings training camp.

Topic 1: Justin Jefferson got hurt when Bashaud Breeland fell on him. It doesn’t seem devastating, thank Odin, but brings to light critical depth issues the Vikings and all teams have to deal with. He isn’t the only player hurt and not fully participating. Adam Thielen has a minor leg injury per reports, Anthony Barr has been out for something and Christian Darrisaw still hasn’t made it to full team drills. Mike Zimmer gets frustrated with injuries. Should he?

Topic 2: Controversy struck hard this week thanks to QB1 Kirk Cousins’ press conference. It went national in a hurry. His attitude on the topic seemed to be what rubbed fans a little raw, but did it for his teammates and how will it affect the Vikings over the course of the season?

Topic 3: The Vikings will host their first preseason game on Saturday in US Bank Stadium vs the Broncos. What do you expect to see? The preseason has been shortened to only 3 games, so what will the formula for playing the starters look like? Are you looking forward to seeing them match up against a decent Denver Broncos team, especially one with one of the best defenses in the league? Are you ready for it?
