Preseason games start on Thursday night and allow me to speak for everybody when I say we are ready for some football. But let’s be honest, some of us are a little rusty. Or maybe we’re just new to the sport all together, which means the vernacular can be a little intimidating.
Have no fear, he’s a look at some preseason glossary terms that will make it much easier to watch the game.

Steve Nash is going to play for the Los Angeles Lakers this season after a blockbuster deal this week. Nash’s trade to the Los Angeles Lakers comes months after Peyton Manning signed a deal with the Denver Broncos. But Nash’s deal is much more striking considering nobody ever thought they would see a day when Nash was a teammate with Kobe Bryant on the Los Angeles Lakers.
So with that in mind, we turned to Twitter on #talkaboutit Friday and asked you to select one NFL legend and a “no way” team for him to finish with, similar to Nash and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson tore his ACL on December 24, triggering the longest offseason of his life. He’s targeted Week 1 for his return, and he seems to be on track. That’s all come with work. “I’ve been in the lab,” Peterson told me, and that’s an apt description. How is he doing? What he has been doing? Will he be ready? All pertinent questions. At Vikings minicamp yesterday, I spoke with Peterson for a while, and here is the full interview. Peterson has always worked. No surprise. Everyone knows that. But this offseason has made him work even more. He’s been humbled, and that’s changed his sense of urgency. He is just dying to be out there. “It really […]

Minnesota was sooooo yesterday. I’m actually in New Orleans now, gearing up to go to Saints OTAs in a little bit. But before I do, let’s get reflect on what we saw in Eden Prairie during Vikings OTAs (which I talked about on TV here). What happened? – The biggest thing that happened was that rehabbing Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin ran up a hill. And I’m not lying, it was one of the coolest things I’ve seen. Two electric athletes, both fighting their way back to health, just absolutely going after it. They were racing. Harvin won almost all of them, but Peterson did get him twice — ACL tear and all. “It was a bit tough,” Harvin said. […]
