Hello Horners! Join me and Ted as we break down
what we saw and felt watching the Minnesota Vikings defeat the New York Jets. Unfortunately Harrison Smith Jersey , Drew was not able to be with us this evening due to technical issues. He was muttering something about Chinese hackers at the end of the game messing with his computer.In this episode of “In The Raw” we discussed the tag teaming effort it took by the Vikings to overcome injuries and weather conditions in the New Jersey swamp that is Met Life Stadium. Everson Griffin being out [hopefully not for long], Stephen Weatherly filling in so that Danielle Hunter can move over to the left side and continue his streak of a sack in every game this season. It was questionable whether he got a full sack today or just 1/2 sack, but it was a sack. A good part of that was what Sheldon Richardson was doing to cause havoc in the pocket. Then take Tom Johnson in for the injured Linval Joseph, and making his presence felt. That whole defensive front four was an exhibit for how you can tag team in when needed. Not to be left out, the defensive secondary took some hits as well and we saw Xavior Rhodes leave the game with some sort of ankle issue. In came Holton Hill [“Cypress”] and promptly snapped up his first interception of his NFL career.Speaking of streaks, Adam Thielen continued his with his seventh game of the season catching over 100 yards. He has now tied Charley Hennigan of the 1961 Houston Oilers, when it was an old AFL team, for consecutive games with 100 yards or more to open a season. Aldrick Robinson and Brandon Zylstra also got in on the tag teaming with Robinson catching his 4th touchdown of the season and Brandon getting his first NFL catch.In what was a windy day that caused problems both in the passing and kicking games, good game planning and execution [for enough of the game] held out, in the Vikings 20 point victory. A first time ever for this organization to beat the Jets on their home field. It was truly an exhibition on the importance to be able to tag team with players and game plan on both sides of the ball. Ted and I enjoyed laughing and talking about the game and mixing in a few stories of old. Not quite the exhibition the Vikings put on, but humorous and fun to watch.

The arduous process of recovery from injuries quickly made the Minnesota Vikings running back realize the necessity of eating right.When he entered the NFL, Cook could hardly have envisioned spinach as the centerpiece of one of his meals. Now, he’s made youth nutrition his chief charitable cause, trying to help kids embrace the value of healthy foods.More Vikings coveragePhotos of the Week: 7/21/19 – 7/27/19Rookie Bradbury is central figure to Vikings’ overhauled offensive lineVikings depth at cornerback being tested, Hughes still not clearedPlayers to watch at Minnesota Vikings 2019 training campTop Tweets: Vikings WR Diggs makes push for All-NFL Style Team“I just started seeing some of the stuff I was eating, and I was like, ‘I never would’ve had this two years ago Kirk Cousins Jersey ,'” Cook said. “So just imagine if I was 10 years old? Just to give them a jump-start on how to do things, to get a message out there and show them how it’s supposed to be done.”Education is one thing, but access is another.When school is out, especially in the summer, many children in low-income households can find meals harder to come by. The Boys & Girls Club of the Twin Cities works with about 9,000 kids, with 90% of them eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, according to senior director of corporate and public relations Tim Schober.Vikings chief operating officer Kevin Warren saw his own awareness rise when his daughter, Peri, founded a food delivery business to bring healthy food to underserved residents of the north side of Minneapolis.“I didn’t quite understand the level of it until I helped her deliver food a couple times on weekends,” Warren said. “There are people right here in our touchpoint that are really struggling, that don’t eat healthy, and it impacts every area of their life.”When the Vikings relaunched their philanthropic arm in 2017, they prioritized childhood hunger, fitness and achievement gaps, with a goal of actively creating their own programs in partnership with local nonprofits rather than the old model of simply issuing grants. The first major initiative was a food truck to serve nutritious meals to needy kids in the area, in conjunction with organizations already addressing food access.This custom-built Marcus Sherels Jersey , converted recreational vehicle energized by rooftop solar panels was unveiled on Thursday. It’s called Vikings Table .“You think about developing countries having hunger issues, but it exists in our own backyard,” said Vikings Foundation executive director Brett Taber. “Food trucks are very popular, so this eliminates some of that social stigma of receiving a free meal.”The association with the local professional football team helps, too.“With the Vikings being involved, it gives it a different feel,” Schober said. “Now, it’s a big special event and everyone is participating and you can take some of the potential embarrassment away.”The concept is similar to an “eye mobile” the Eagles Charitable Foundation has deployed in the Philadelphia area since 1996 to offer free eye exams and prescription glasses to needy children .Boosted by a seven-figure pledge from Xcel Energy, the project also will be funded by sales from the food truck with a separate menu at Vikings games, training camp practices and other events. Profits will be directed back to the summer youth meal service. The back of the truck has an 80-inch monitor to show videos about healthy eating. Local food truck entrepreneurs Tony and Haley Fritz will be operating, maintaining and staffing the truck.“The hope is to have some kind of an effect on people. It’s kind of an event so they want to be a part of that,” Haley Fritz said. “We’re trying to say: ‘Hey, this is cool. The Vikings eat turkey tacos, too.’ The hope is that they just keep us overly busy and we just keep feeding as many people as we can.”
