How do Vikings Fans Feel about Kirk Cousins, Mike Zimmer and the State of the Team?

Posted on January 16, 2020 by Zone Coverage

A recent poll conducted by Zone Coverage shows that Minnesota Vikings fans are pretty confident in Mike Zimmer, their team’s head coach. They still, however, need to be convinced about quarterback Kirk Cousins.

At the halfway point of Cousins’ lucrative three-year contract, Zone Coverage polled 150 random Vikings fans to get their take on the highly-paid quarterback, the defensive-minded head coach and the team’s general manager Rick Spielman.

Cousins signed a three-year, $84 million guaranteed contract in 2018 which was supposed to propel the Vikings to a Super Bowl. But in his first season they didn’t make huge leaps. The former Washington quarterback came up short in big games, as the Minnesota Vikings finished the year 8-7-1 to keep them out of the playoffs. 

Even after a fast start to the 2019 season where Cousins looked comfortable in Minnesota’s new offensive system, only 42 percent of fans believed his contract was justified, according to the poll. 

At the time of the signing in 2018, Cousins’ 100 percent guaranteed contract contained the largest annual average salary in football at $28 million per year. He’s since been passed by six other quarterbacks.

Posted on January 15, 2020 by Ronald Mccarthy

The human body needs nutrients to function and operate effectively. Without adequate vitamins and minerals, the human body would not be able to perform its activities at its optimum level. The body needs food to derive its energy. Your food intake is how your body gets all the required nutrients and vitamins.

To ensure that your body stays healthy and keeps working at its best, you need to provide it with several nutrients. You can either get nutrients through supplements from Bulk Nutrients Australia or intake a healthy, well-balanced diet that ensures your body gets all that it needs.

In the article ahead, listed down are a few common signs when your body is indicating a deficiency of vitamins and minerals.  

·    Constant Fatigue and Lethargy:

Our lifestyles have hampered exposure to the sun. We work during the day, in closed offices, and lounge in our homes after work in front of the television. We have minimized our exposure to the sun, and this has caused severe health hazards. The sunlight is one of the most significant sources of vitamin D. Reduced exposure to the sun has caused the majority of the population to suffer from vitamin D deficiency.

A few signs that indicate that you may be suffering from vitamin D deficiency are regular feelings of fatigue. A reasonable level of tiredness and exhaustion after a hectic day of work is a prime example. But if your fatigue does not go away even after a relaxed, good night’s sleep, then you may be dealing with a health problem.

5 Signs You’re Obsessed with Tennis

Posted on January 13, 2020 by Ronald Mccarthy

Ever find yourself hearing people tell you that you take tennis far too seriously? There’s a good chance you’re only being told that because you do take tennis too seriously. Maybe you always think of your doubles partner whenever someone asks you about your partner. Or, when it comes to dressing for a party, you find your closet only full of tennis skirts. Maybe you also have a funny looking tan line that just never seems to go. But that’s okay. Because if you and everyone in your life think you take tennis too seriously, it just means you’re passionate.

Passion is what keeps you motivated. When you have an extreme passion for a sport, it’s highly likely that you will only get better at it. Passion is what keeps you going. It’s what drives you to commit to something – be it a sport, a job or even a relationship. When you have a passion for something, it means you care just enough to keep going and do even better.

Sometimes, though, passion can be conceived as an obsession. That’s okay, too. Because even though the two have different meanings, they essentially suggest the same thing; you care. If you care about a sport that you love, you should feel proud of yourself. It’s not every day that you find someone willing to commit so greatly to something. Most people actually find it hard to stay passionate about their jobs or their hobbies. Which is why being obsessed with tennis is not something you should find shameful. It should be something that makes you proud.

If you think you show signs of being obsessed with tennis, keep reading. This article is going to cover five major signs that you might be obsessed with tennis.

5 Signs You’re Obsessed with Tennis:

Sign Number 1: You love the smell of new tennis balls. While this might seem like regular behaviour for, let’s say, dogs – it’s considered a little stranger when an adult is addicted to the smell of new tennis balls. Tennis players have a very common trait – their love of the smell of new tennis balls. They can’t get enough of it! A tennis player will have purchased and played with hundreds of balls in their career, but despite that, they still aren’t sick of the new tennis ball smell. There’s nothing quite like getting in a whiff of that new ball smell when you get a new pack, is there? It may be a guilty pleasure, but don’t worry – all tennis players can relate.
