NFL Lockout's Impact On The Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings have a lot of holes to fill both offensively and defensively. Most notably they need to find a starting quarterback. That quarterback -- along with the rest of the team -- will also need to learn a new offense under new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave. Joe Webb is the team's starting quarterback right now, but I suspect the Vikings will draft a quarterback and pick-up a veteran. Minnesota's decision to keep Leslie Frazier as head coach was a smart move and should provide the defense with some stability. However, the Vikings defense will look a lot different next year with defensive lineman Pat Williams gone, defensive end Ray Edwards likely gone (free agent) and linebacker Ben Leber (free agent) maybe gone. The Vikings are similar to the San Francisco 49ers in that they have some very talented players, but they need a consistent quarterback and more play makers on defense.
