And the world drops to its knees as if to celebrate: The Minnesota Vikings have a mere two preseason games left before the real thing starts.
Breathe in. Breathe out. We're that much closer to actual football.
But until then, we have two more preseason games to endure.
And until that next preseason game (Sunday, Aug. 25), we have two preseason games and training camp to assess where the heck this 2013 Vikings season is going.
The Vikings are 0-2 in the preseason. But it's just the preseason. Can't get too worked up over the preseason?
Yes. And no.
It's a two-way street filled with cars on each side of the road.
Here, we're looking at the five cars taking up the most amount of space—the five problems from training camp and the two preseason games that are most concerning.
This could be performances by coaches, players or units in training camp or preseason games, depth chart situations, health statuses or anything else alarming that could set back Minnesota in its 2013 campaign, based upon expectations entering training camp.
There is no order here. Only concerns that need solutions.
