The Super Show: Minnesota Vikings Season Preview

The Minnesota Vikings are gearing up for an exciting 2023 season, and fans got a sneak peek of what’s to come during a recent Season Preview show. Hosted by Dave Stefano, the show featured in-depth discussions about the team’s goals and expectations, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the team’s preparations.

Joining Stefano were Tyler Forness and Justin Day, two seasoned experts and fellow Vikings 1st & SKOL hosts who provided valuable insights into the team’s roster and strategy. One of the biggest topics of discussion was the recent extension of safety Josh Metellus, which both Forness and Day agreed was a smart move for the Vikings.

Metellus is a special teams ace and a valuable player in the heavy nickel packages, and the extension shows that the Vikings are committed to rewarding players who work hard and contribute to the team’s success. While the extension doesn’t necessarily mean that Metellus will be a starter, it does provide the team with a valuable asset and a player who can step up when needed.

Forness and Day also discussed the contract situation of star wide receiver Justin Jefferson, with Forness predicting a three-year deal worth $96 million. They discussed the importance of guaranteed money and the limited window for players to make money in the NFL, as well as how players can maneuver their contracts to make it seem like they’re the highest paid, even if they’re not.

The trio also talked about the team’s goals and expectations for the upcoming season, with Forness highlighting the importance of the offensive line and Day discussing the impact of new defensive coordinator Brian Flores. They also discussed some of the key players to watch out for, including quarterback Kirk Cousins, the efficiency of the running game, and the mix of pass and run to be more consistent and reduce the 3 and outs.

In addition to these discussions, Day also talked about the inaugural SKOL Fest on Saturday, a gathering of content creators and fans that will be giving away prizes, including a pair of tickets to the Vikings’ game against Tampa Bay. The event is a testament to the passion and dedication of Vikings fans, and it’s sure to be a fun-filled celebration of all things purple and gold.
