The Minnesota Vikings have the makings of a team that could surprise a few people in the 2015 NFL season.
The Vikes have star running back Adrian Peterson back after spending last year on the sidelines, while they managed to trade for explosive wideout Mike Wallace to give Rookie of the Year quarterback Teddy Bridgewater a good target to aim for.
It seems like head coach Mike Zimmer would definitely disagree with anyone saying his team have a good chance to spring an upset this year.

During Thursday’s final practice of the summer at the team’s training camp home in Mankato, Minnesota, Zimmer was so fed up with his players that he stopped practice to make the team run a lap and then unloaded on them after the session came to an end.
“That was a terrible practice,” Zimmer said, according to a report from Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press.
“That was not up to my standards and they’d better get better quick or [there’s] going to be lot of heck going on.”
Zimmer went on to say that the only positive of the practice is that the team is now going home, although he added that looking forward to the end of their stay in Mankato was no excuse for the team’s on-field performance.
The coaches rant didn't stop there however, with the former Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator being extremely short with the assorted press asking him questions after practice. You can check that out here via the Twitter of Tom Pelissero.
