Purple FTW! Podcast (general)

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings begin their two days of practice with the Cincinnati Bengals before Friday's first preseason game in Southern Ohio (but really Northern Kentucky). Mankato Training Camp is in the rear view mirror. Impressions were made, but still plenty of time for jobs to be won or lost. But that won't stop us from recklessly speculating who will (Teddy Bridgewater) and who won't (Antone Exum) be in Purple to start the 2016 season.

Follow along with our 53-man roster projection on the Google Doc.

All that and other "I MADE THE ROOSTER!" chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

The annual dead period between the Saturday morning walk-through and the famous Night Practice is upon us. No worries though as we've set up at Boulder Tap House again with Sam Ekstrom (@SamEkstrom), Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman), and Eric Thompson (@Eric_J_Thompson) to talk a little Minnesota Fightin' Vikings and what we've seen from the squad as they round out their final weekend in Mankato this season. (Note: Eric's audio kicked out about 3/4 of the way through the show. Ah well.)

Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL), Sam Ekstrom (@SamEkstrom) and Daniel House (@DanielHouseNFL) joined me to recap the session, what's been impressive (and not so impressive) so far, and I finally get a definitive answer on "HOW'S TEDDY LOOK?"

Show Topics Include:
• How's Teddy Deep Ball Looking?
• Adam Thielen Rising?
• Jabari Price's Place on This Team

I got Chris Tomasson (@ChrisTomasson) of the Pioneer Press to sit still for a conversation about his extensive world travels and the upcoming season of Minnesota Fightin' Viking football.

We chatted about his memories of the late-Denny Green (Chris was a student at Northwestern when Denny became their head coach), what Phil Loadholt's retirement means for the embattled Vikings offensive line, how he met Adrian's dad, why he thinks Mortiz Boehringer has a legit shot of making the 53-man roster, the favorite story he's ever written, and "How's Teddy look?"

Former Vikings head coach Denny Green passed away this week at the young age of 67. Denny coached the Vikes from 1992 to 2001, was the 2nd winningest coach in franchise history (behind only Bud Grant), and was a pioneer in the African-American head coaching world. Both in the NFL and in college football. We take time to look back and remember the life of Coach Green and the legacy he leaves behind.

Also in lieu of flowers, Denny's family requests donations to the Boys and Girls Club of San Diego. Here's the Link. http://bgcsandieguito.org/give/donatenow/

Head coach Mike Zimmer met with a herd of Vikings fans Thursday night at the Fan HQ Eden Prairie. Coach signed autographs and took photos as part of the #MoreThanWords campaign benefiting the Mike Zimmer Foundation. Happy to say that this event helped smash MTW's original $10,000 fundraising goal and we're currently over $12k. Still plenty of time to donate before the August 9th deadline. Let's run up the score on this mother!

In the podcast I recap the event and playback the chats I had with Coach Zimmer, his daughter and MZ Foundation Director Corri Zimmer, Fan HQ's Shaun Hagglund, and a few Purple People Fans that made the trek -- including Vikings luminary 100% Cheese Free (sans outfit). Photos and video below.

[Editor's Note: Taking the week off to head down to Podcast Movement! But I wanted to leave you guys with some content to get you through this desert of football news with one of our most downloaded episodes ever. Please enjoy and I'll catch you next week. -Andy]

Hindsight is 20/20. That's why we jumped in our DeLorean and went back to save the Vikings from themselves in 2011. There was a run on quarterbacks early in the first round and de facto GM Rick Spielman panicked and overdrafted Christian Ponder at #12. He did hit on Kyle Rudolph in the 2nd and Brandon Fusco in the 6th, but I think we can do a touch better with hindsight and our time machine.

Come along with Purple FTW! as we redo the Vikings 2011 Draft!

Other 1.21 Gigawatts Talking Points Include:
• The Rules of Time Travel
• Remembering the 2010 Vikings (For some reason)
• 2011 Refresher: Frazier, Musgrave, Pagac... LET'S GO!
• The Original 2011 Draft Picks
1 (12) – Christian Ponder – QB – Florida State
2 (43) – Kyle Rudolph – TE – Notre Dame
3rd Round Pick went to New England in the Moss Trade (They Took Mallett) #74
4 (106) – Christian Ballard – DE/DT - Iowa
5 (139) – Brandon Burton – CB - Utah
6 (168) – DeMarcus Love – OT – Arkansas
6 (170) – Mistral Raymond – S – USF
6 (172) – Brandon Fusco – C – Slippery Rock
6 (200) – Ross Homan – LB – Ohio State
7 (215) – D'Aundre Reed – DE – Arizona
7 (236) – Stephen Burton – WR – West Texas A&M
• Who I picked instead (Spicy one inthe 5th round)
• The real-vs-Andy 2011 Vikings Depth Chart
• The Andy 2015 Vikings Depth Chart (The Secondary is STACKED)

Harrison Smith is the best kept secret in the NFL. He's the most complete safety in the league, yet is continually over-looked for accolades and by the national media. Maybe they'll take notice now that Dirty Harry is the highest paid (by per year average) safety after inking a 5-year, $51.25M deal with $28.578M guaranteed. Now it's time for Harry to earn that cheddar and he seems more than ready to justify the #Faith shown by the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings.

Today's Topics Include
• Vikings Mini-Camp Wrapped Up a Day Early
• Joint Practices Announced with the Bengals
• Only 10 Days in Mankato
• Adrian Says to Trade Anyone Not Thinking Super Bowl
• Laquon Treadwell Got Hazed with.... Fruit Snacks?
• Will This be the Year for Cordarrelle?

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings are back in the hood that is Eden Prairie as the Purple begin preparation for the 2016 season. Nothing is more meaningless than OTAs, but the only thing getting more attention than them is than lady and her damn Chewbacca mask. But I digress, let's talk some football! (Which we apparently do not do on The Andy Luke & Arif Football Machine.)

Today's Topics Include

• Why Adrian Peterson Showed Up
• Players Present But Not Participating

David Morgan II -- the Pride of the UTSA Road Runners -- stopped by the show to chat about his first weeks with the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings.

We talked about what it's like helping build a brand new college football program from scratch, what he envisions his role with the Purple will be, early impressions of the tight end room and new position coach Pat Shurmur, which current NFL player he models his game after, and why he's a "II" and not a "Jr". Also David shares a fishing story that would make B-Rob weep.

The Mortiz Boehringer (aka Mortiz Böhringer) story continues as the NFL will allow Borat to rock the umlaut on his uniform this season. He's still a long-shot to make the roster and the feel-good story is over (Mike Zimmer said so, not me), but he'll still be a fan favorite in Mankato for training camp. Plus if he makes a few plays, the fans will be like "Öööööööööööööhhhhhhh!"

The newest class of Minnesota Fightin' Vikings rookies are in the building this weekend for rookie mini-camp. Draft picks, undrafted free agents, and tryout players alike will try to climb the mountain of making the Vikings 53-man roster (remember, John Randle was a tryout/UDFA), in what could be the most competitive offseason in team history. There is talent everywhere.

Today we run through a few of the rookies and forecast what their present and future roles could be in Purple. Beyond the headliners in wide receiver Laquon Treadwell and cornerback Mackensie Alexander, there are a number of interesting names who can bring something to the Vikings' table.

All that and other "Chewbacca was a Rookie" nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

Laquon Treadwell is the newest member of the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings raiding party. We take a closer look at the young man from Ole Miss, how he overcame a gruesome injury his sophomore year to become a first round NFL pick, why I love his demeanor and maturity beyond his 20-years on this planet, and what he brings to the Vikings offense. Teddy Bridgewater, Stefon Diggs, and Norv Turner have to be very pleased getting the "Ambassador of Quon" in the building.

As many Purple FTW! listeners know, I only do one mock draft a year. Mostly due to my lack of expertise and the rest is due to apathy, but it's Draft week! And as Rick Spielman prepares to be the stone cold boss of the Vikings War Room (probably with one-handed pushups), I offer these humble suggestions for potential prospects straight from my weak and feeble fan brain.

The WTH is Andy Thinking? Picks Are:
1. (23) Josh Doctson, WR TCU – 6-2 202
1. (30)* Karl Joseph, S West Virginia – 5-10 205 (via CAR)
3. (86) Jaylon Smith, OLB Notre Dame – 6-2 233
5. (160) Drew Kaser, P Texas A&M – 6-2 212
7. (240) Moritz Wilhelm Boeringer, WR Germany – 6-4 227 (via BUF)
7. (244) Keith Marshall, RB Georgia – 5-11 219
7. (252)* Justin Zimmer, DT Ferris State – 6-3 292 (via CAR)
*Carolina trades their 1st (30) and 7th (252) for Minnesota's 2nd (54), 4th (121) and 6th (180)

We chat about the Rams-Titans trade and how it affects the rest of the draft, the fallout from the Jaylon Smith and Myles Jack medical rechecks, if the Vikings are in a position to draft a "redshirt" player, and which Day 1-2 position combos would make us the most happy as Mike Zimmer and the Vikes try to bring home a dozen Lombardis this year.

The 2016 NFL Schedule has been released (like so many white doves). We now know the order of the menu of the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings as we feast towards #LombardiAtNRG.

Tough decisions are a hallmark of the NFL Draft. Teams have a position of need and two comparable players on their draft boards available for selection. Manning or Leaf, Luck or RG3, Jameis or Mariota. These watershed moments can change franchises forever.

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings aren't selecting at the top of the draft, but the decisions will still weigh the same. We brought out man Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman) in to walk through some of these potential Sophie's Choices.

WHO YA GOT? Situations Include:
• 1st Tier Wide Receiver: Laquon Treadwell or Josh Doctson
• 2nd Tier Wide Receiver: Michael Thomas or Tyler Boyd
• 2nd Tier Wide Receiver: Will Fuller or Sterling Shepard
• Linebacker: Darron Lee or Jaylon Smith
• Late 1st Tackle: Jack Conklin or Taylor Decker
• Defensive Tackle Manna From Heaven: Sheldon Rankins or Andrew Billings
• Defensive Tackle Diet Manna From Heaven: Vernon Butler or DJ Reader
• 1st Tier Safety: Karl Joseph, Darien Thompson or Jeremy Cash
• 2nd Tier Safety: Miles Killebrew or Kevin Byard
• Random Late Wide Receiver: Pharoh Cooper or KJ Maye
• Developmental Quarterback: Vernon Adams or Cardale Jones
• Punter: Peter Mortell or Tom Hackett

The Minnesota Vikings' draft plans are a big talking point for fans right now as the 2016 version is less than a month away. GM Rick Spielman will have a lot of decisions to make behind-the-scenes, some will be crazy stories and scenarios that will never see the light of day. To shine a light on a few hypotheticals is our resident NFL Draft BOSS Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman)! The scenarios are.......

Scenario 1: Myles Jack is the #1 player on your board. He's still available at #5 when David Caldwell of the Jacksonville Jaguars calls you up and says he wants the #23 overall pick plus your 2nd, 3rd and 5th 2016 picks and your 1st rounder in 2017. What say you?

Scenario 2: Laquon Treadwell, Josh Doctson, Corey Coleman, Andrew Billings, Jack Conklin, Taylor Decker are all off the board at 23 (as well as who you'd expect to be gone). You cannot trade back. Who do you take?

Scenario 3: Doctson is off the board, but Treadwell is available at 23. Offensive Coordinator Norv Turner has said unequivocally he does not want to work with Treadwell and prefers an offensive lineman. What do you do?

Scenario 4: Washington is on the clock at 21. Doctson is available and your sources say the Texans will grab him at 22 if available. Washington offers to swap picks if you include your 2nd, 5th, and Adrian Peterson. What do you do?

Scenario 5: You get a call from whoever the hell the Titans GM is this week. They're offering the #1 pick in exchange for your 2016 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th round picks, 2017 2nd rounder, and Matt Kalil. What do you do?

Scenario 6: Head coach Mike Zimmer says that Robert Nkemdiche is the #1 player in this draft and wants to work with him despite the off the field stuff. He's available at 23, but so is Josh Doctson. What do you do?

Scenario 7: Mike Tannenbaum of the Dolphins calls you up. He offers DeVante Parker for Anthony Barr straight up. What do you do?

The first wave of free agency has come and gone. The Minnesota Vikings didn't land the White Whales the fanbase wanted (Kelechi Osemele or George Iloka), but I think we're fine settling for the White Rhino in Alex Boone. We dive into him as well as the other depth free agent signing the Purple made. I also take a look at other potential Vikings still on the market and what the plan should be with our own unrestricted free agents.

Mock Drafts. So hot right now. That's why I teamed up with the smartest draft mind in the South Metro Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman) and did one up. Parameters are simple: We alternated picks for the first round of the draft and come on the show to talk about our thought process behind our selections. Luke's reasoning is in-depth and studied, while mine has as much logic behind it as the secretary in your office always winning the March Madness Pool by picking winners based on their mascot. Yeah...

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings look to reload and take another step forward in the 2016 season. To do so, Rick Spielman will have to work his magic once again and supplement the already young and talented roster with players who will help push Mike Zimmer and his crew over the hump. Grab a coffee and come on in. Let's talk some Vikings!

The 11 Talkers Include
• NFL Combine Under Way
• Ricky Spielman Spoke at the Combine
• Rick Spielman Sat Down with Beat Writers Last Week
• Spielman Says Height Not Determining Factor in Drafting Next Vikings WR
• Norv Might Be In Trouble
• Adrian Showing Signs of Wear?

The NFL Combine kicks off this Friday in Indianapolis. All of the NFL GMs, scouts, executives, coaches, etc are descending on Lucas Oil Stadium (but really St. Elmo's) to scope out the next crop of NFL talent as the young men compete in events tangentially related to the game of American Football, all while wearing their skivvies.

Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman) is back in the house to tell us about what matters at the Combine, what doesn't and what Vikings fans should look for this weekend. Also I try to stump Luke in a festive round of NFL COMBINE TRIVIA!

All that and other "Underwear Olympics" nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

Jared Allen hung em up after 12 NFL seasons including 6 with the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings. He's one of my all-time favorite Vikings and I eulogize his career during the intro of the show.

Jared Allen was one of my favorite all-time Vikings. Fun on the field, fun off the field and a solid example to NFL players -- and all of us really -- how you can get your life in order and do good in the world. All while being yourself. Culinary Academy.

Hey Purple FTW! Fans. I've got a new project called (narcissistically enough) The Andy Carlson Show. It's a 5-day a week podcast where I talk about Sports... And other stuff.

So if you enjoy my mediocrity here, enjoy my mediocrity there by checking out the site and subscribing on iTunes.

---

Valentine's Day came and went and ironically the sports news was hot and heavy over the weekend too. I recap the goings on in Five Things as well as give the low-down on what The Wife and I did over the weekend (get your mind out of the gutter). Also Jensen's in Eagan is #Elite.

Today's Five Things Are
• Peyton Manning's Tainted Legacy?
• Minnesota State Dance This Weekend - Go Austin Packer Dance Team!
• Wolves Dominate NBA All-Star Weekend
• Minnesota Wild Fired Mike Yeo. Now What?
• Emmitt Smith Says Adrian Peterson Only Player Who Can Break His Record

Winning free agency is NOT the key to success (i.e. Washington in the 2000s, Tampa Bay two years ago), but it's still a lot of fun to see your favorite team pick up pieces that could help them next season. I take a dip into the free agent pool and come up with 5 names Vikings fans should keep and eye on as March 9th approaches. All of the guys I picked are for positions of need and will not necessarily break the bank or be household names, but will help this team (ala Linval Joseph and Captain Munnerlyn two season ago). Also I run through the current list of Vikings free agents and definitively say if they'll be back or yee gon.

During the show we talk about what the hell a podcast producer does (I still have no idea), suss out how he did prepping for his first show, fill you guys in about the first time I met Daniel in Mankato (#BackSweat) and even talk a little Minnesota Fightin' Vikings.

We dive into the week from a media coverage perspective, how players can hurt/help their stock, why practices are WAY more important than the game, how interviews can be even more important than anything on the field, and we also highlight some players to watch for -- especially from a Vikings fan perspective.

The season ended abruptly for the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings in (sadly) typical Minnesota Fightin' Viking fashion as Blair Walsh shanked the game-winning field goal out of bounds on the 18th tee. However, a few days removed we can appreciate the 2015 season for what it was: a solid step forward for a young and hungry team under a coach we completely trust. That's a lot more than most fanbases have to hang their hats on as our offseason begins. Di Murphy (@DiMurphyMN) of The Daily Norseman joins the show to put a bow on the Purple's 2015 campaign.

We talk about why it wasn't ALL on Blair Walsh, Adrian Peterson's fumbling history rears its ugly head once again, what Teddy Bridgewater needs to do to become a bigger redzone threat, how the Vikings beat Seattle in every aspect of the game Sunday, and what our priorities are in free agency and the draft.

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings are officially slotted into the 23rd overall pick of the upcoming NFL Draft. There are a couple of glaring needs (offensive line, wide receiver, second safety, punter), but it is nice to be looking to supplement an already young and solid team instead of looking for a savior.

Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman) joins us to walk through his FULL 7-round Vikings mock draft as the Purple look to reload and take care of unfinished business in 2016.

With the 23rd overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings select..... You'll have to tune in!

Instead of working on a Monday morning (overrated), I decided to yammer on for 40 minutes about the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings offseason, what priorities should/should not be in free agency and the draft, who's safe and who's not on the offensive line and which training camp battles I'm excited to see. Straight off the cuff, unprepared (shocker), unrehearsed Vikings takes if you're into that sort of thing.

That was a less than ideal way for the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings to end the 2015 campaign. But let's not lose the forest through the trees, this season was a damn good year and this young football team is ahead of schedule with Mike Zimmer. We went 11-5, won a division title, and will be in the mix as legitimate Super Bowl contenders next season. Take a while to let this game marinate, but not all is lost. This team's best football is ahead of it.

Talking Points Include
• Was It Cold Out?
• Bud Grant is My Idol
• Blair Walsh is Not the Reason We Lost
• This is Not Adrian Peterson's Team
• Free Teddy Bridgewater
• There Are OTHER Pieces on this Offense
• Offensive Line Needs to be Overhauled
• The Defense Was the MVP Today
• Trae Waynes was Impressive
• Josh Robinson was Not
• The Seahawks Did Everything to Lose the Game, We Gave Them a Gift
• Twitter and Facebook Questions
• Why 2016 Will Be HUGEEEEE
• Podcast Offseason Programming Plan

Merry Vikings Wild Card Eve, Vikings Fans! The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings are set to play the Seattle Seahawks tomorrow afternoon at The Bank (aka Hoth) kicking off what we hope to be an extended run in the playoffs for this young team. To get the other perspective of the game, we welcome back show favorite Dayna O'Gorman (@DaynaOG) of the NFL Female Podcast to chat about the 'Birds and the Vikes.

Today's topics include why the 38-7 beatdown a few weeks ago might not have been indicative of where these two teams are, how Russell Wilson has become the face of that franchise and how Teddy Bridgewater could/should/will become the face of ours, what Marshawn Lynch returning might mean for the game, why the Pro Bowl is stupid (until it's not), how this clash of two great defenses might shake out, and how playing in a commercial freezer will have an effect on the matchup.

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings have revenge on their mind and would love nothing more than to dispatch the Seattle Seahawks Tarantino style. Like Kill Bill style. Or the end of Inglorious Basterds style. (No spoilers for The Hateful Eight). To do so, the Purple will have to play a hateful 3.5 hours (just like the damn movie) and our man Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) is back in the building to talk about how Zimmer and the Reservoir Dogs can get it done on Sunday. Pulp Fiction.

Arif and I run through how the Seahawks can get got, answer a few of your Twitter Questions, discuss my controversial playoff coach power rankings, and pick who we want to see in the Super Bowl (if the Vikings somehow don't make it).

I also complain about sweet potato fries. They. Are. Garbage.

Besides discussing Making a Murderer (which I do at length), we dive into the deliciousness of winning the NFC North, why this team isn't satisfied with being one-and-done in the playoffs, how Seattle can get got, how Harrison Smith is a better safety than Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas combined, why the 38-7 beatdown was a fluke, if there's any coaches in the NFL we'd take over Mike Zimmer, and why fans going to the game Sunday have no right to complain about the cold.

Tom Schreier (@tschreier3) of Cold Omaha joins the show as we talk some Purple and being four wins away from that long awaited Super Bowl ring.

We also dive into what it feels like to be Division champs and why that should become old hat for this team shortly, why we need to find out if Teddy Bridgewater is a franchise quarterback or not, Adrian Peterson's reasoning for bringing back up the offseason drama in Sports Illustrated, how the Adrian child abuse debate is like arguing abortion and gun control (hear me out), all of the ways the Seahawks are coming in overrated, and I talk about why Bruce Arians and Mike Zimmer are my two favorite coaches in the NFL.

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings are your NFC North Champions after defeating the hated Green Bay Packers 20-13 Sunday Night at Lambeau Field. Everson Griffen and the Vikings defense kept Aaron Rodgers and Eddie "Slim" Lacy in check to bring home the Purple's first division title since 2009. The Vikes square off against the Seattle Seahawks (revenge game, son) in the Wild Card Round at noon Sunday at The Bank. But before we look ahead, let's look back at the Vikings shaking off the "You can't beat Green Bay/You can't win big games in prime time" narratives.

Other "This is Our Damn Division" Talking Points Include
• The Idea of Losing Intentionally Was Moronic

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings and the Green Bay Packers are setup for a shootout at the Lambeau Corral Sunday Night to determine the NFC North Champion. Fortunately we have Teddy Earp, Zimmer Earp, Blair Earp and Doc Harrison Holiday in our posse. The Packers have Ike and Billy Clanton. (Excuse me while I go watch Tombstone. It's a phenomenal movie.)

Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) swings by to preview Border Battle 2.0. We chat about how Green Bay can get got, why Vikings fans should want the damn home playoff game and not try to be cute, how far this team can realistically go in the playoffs and if Teddy Bridgewater's resurgence can be enough to take us on a magic carpet ride. Also we determine that I make more references to the movie Looper more than any other human on planet Earth.

It's been a extremely fun year with you the listeners here at the Purple FTW! Podcast. From the end of the 2014 7-9 season, the 5-Hour NFL Draft Live Stream, doing shows from Mankato and all of the insightful guests we've had -- especially the regular contributors Di Murphy, Luke Inman, Lindsey Young and Arif Hasan.

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings have been perpetually searching for a big-bodied, go up and get it type wide receiver ever since Sidney Rice left. Here we are again. We were fortunate to find the electric Stefon Diggs late in the draft (5th round) and past two drafts have been prodigious in terms of wide receivers available with no sign of slowing down. Could the Vikes find another stud late to pair with Diggs? Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman) drops some knowledge on us about some late round sleeper wideouts Vikings fans should keep their eye on.

Today's Roster Includes
• Corey Davis, Western Michigan
• De’Runnya Wilson, Miss State
• Rashard Higgins, Colorado State
• Leonte Carroo, Rutgers
• Devon Cajuste, Stanford
• Malcolm Mitchell, Georgia
• Braxton Miller, Ohio State
• Ricky Seals-Jones, Texas A&M

Our Minnesota Fightin' Vikings secured their spot in the playoffs tonight with an emphatic win 49-17 over the New York Giants. The Vikes defense feasted on Eli Manning while Teddy Bridgewater continued his high level of play. The Purple's task is clear: Win next Sunday in Lambeau and win the division and a home Wild Card round playoff game. Let's. Go.

The path for the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings is clear: Win Two Games, Win The North. To do that the Purple will have to win in prime time and beat the Packers, things that have been sparse as of late (just ask #VikingsTwitter). The Odell Beckham-less New York Football Giants stand in the way first (although the issue was up in the air during recording). We welcome Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) back into the friendly confines to talk about Gotham vs Twin Cities.

Other topics include how the Vikings got completely messed over in the Pro Bowl voting because fans are sheep, why Ron Jaworski is NOT a premier source for breaking news, if Teddy Bridgewater can keep playing the best ball of his career, how the Giants are basically the Browns without OBJ and Arif and I hand out presents to the team. Because 'tis the season or something.

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings potentially got a Christmas Gift from Odell Beckham Jr by him acting a fool against Carolina and getting suspended for the Purple vs New York Football Giants Sunday Night Football showdown (pending appeal). Di Murphy (@DiMurphyMN) of The Daily Norseman rejoins the show to talk about if OBJ's actions warranted suspension and if the NFL has the fortitude to uphold said suspension on appeal even though it would mean one of the league's biggest stars missing a prime time game with playoff implications.

We also chatted about how men and women cannot be friends (sometimes), make fun of Josh Freeman and that 2013 Monday Night Football debacle in the Meadowlands, Di yells at me for wanting Eli over Peyton Manning in a last-minute drive situation, we bask in the greatness of Teddy Bridgewater's performance versus the Bears, and ponder if Adrian Peterson and Teddy B can co-exist for another season or if "All Day" will be "All Gone" in 2016.

LYRICS:
Teddy the Throwman
Was an Elite NFL QB
When Norv Let Him Play, The Teddy Way
And He Wasn't Deferring to AP

Teddy the Throwman
Had Skinny Knees they Say
But When Norv Did Stop
The Seven Step Drops
How He Lit it Up on Sunday

There Must Have Been Some Magic
In Those Two Gloves He Does Wear
For When He Plays In HIS Offense
The Vikes Move the Ball Everywhere

Teddy the Throwman
Is Elite with Rookie Stefon
And Rudolph's Okay
And You Could Say
Mike Wallace is Decent When He's On

Gumpity Gump Gump

Teddy the Throwman
Charles Johnson is Also a Thing
And He Throws to Wright
And He Keeps it Tight
With 2 Catches, 24 Yards He Brings

Teddy the Throwman
Is a Great Marriage with Zim
And McKinnon is Fun
Running Out of the Gun
Good Thing Happen When You Give the Ball to Him

There Was a Bunch of Vikings Fans
Hating on the Kid From Louisville
But the Last Two Weeks Teddy Has Stood Up
And Told Them All to Chill

Teddy the Throwman
Is Gonna Lead Us to Rings
Open US Bank
And We Have to Thank
Teddy for Letting Us Have Nice Things

We talked about how Jay Cutler suddenly is being re-embraced by the Chicago faithful, how Vikings and Bears fans can be eerily similar, why 30-year old running back Matt Forte and 30-year old running back Adrian Peterson are extremely different, predictions for Sunday's game, and what it's like for Julie to be married to a diehard Minnesota Fightin' Vikings fan.

Star Wars is a thing. And the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings and the Chicago Bears are set to clash at TCF Bank Stadium Sunday like the Rebel Alliance and the Dark Side and the Romulans and the.... I've never seen Star Wars.... But Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) has! We talk about The Force as well as the Purple People Eaters as he makes his weekly stop.

We also chatted about which Vikings will make the Pro Bowl (not that the Pro Bowl matters), ask if Rick Spielman is underrated, why Linval Joseph being back is monsterous for our playoff chances, and Arif casts Vikings players as Star Wars characters. Because that's original.

The Week 15 showdown between the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings and the Chicago Windy City Bears is nigh! That's why we had Bears blogger Jeff Hughes (@DaBearsBlog) of Da Bears Blog in to discuss how his Monsters of the Midway look to try and play spoiler against our beloved Purple who need this home win to help solidify our playoff position.

We chatted about how Jeff likes the new regime in Chicago, how new media like blogs and podcasts have an edge over traditional outlets, if Jay Cutler has turned things around, Matt Forte being on the way out, how Teddy Bridgewater can get the sour taste of Arizona out of his mouth, and how the Vikes and Bears will end up Sunday afternoon at The Bank.

We welcome in Di Murphy (@DiMurphyMN) of The Daily Norseman for her weekly hot takes as we discuss Week 16 Vikings-Giants being flexed to Sunday Night football, how the Purple can keep position in the playoff picture, if the "Primetime Curse" is a real thing, and how this damn team better get healthy if it wants to do anything in January.

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings did NOT lose by fiddy points as most of #VikingsTwitter expected, but did fall to the Arizona Cardinals 23-20 Thursday night. Teddy Bridgewater played one of the best games of his young career, yet will only be remembered for the strip sack that sealed the game for Arizona, the second game ending strip sack to end a 23-20 road game this season...

We discuss the game that was and look forward to remaining games on the schedule while determining if the Vikings can hold off Tampa Bay for the Wild Card or if Green Bay can still get got for the NFC North crown (spoiler: they can).

Other "Such a Vikings Way to Lose" Talking Points Include
• Two Ways to Look at Teddy's Game
• The Mandatory Norv Turner Talking Point

Well at least #CheeseburgerGate was a fun distraction as the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings limp into University of Phoenix Stadium tonight to take on the red hot 10-2 Arizona Cardinals. All the odds seem stacked against the 8-4 Purple as we struggle to keep our playoff hopes alive. At least McDonalds gave the team 100 burgers though...

Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) joins us for his weekly spot and we chat about how the Vikings can attempt to right the ship out in the desert. We also touch on whether Norv Turner needs to be fired for not catering to Teddy Bridgewater, if Adrian Peterson has a right to gripe about his usage, how the Zimmer Hellfire Defense can rebound from all of the injuries, and I complain about Jarius Wright not being a "true" slot receiver.

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings are limping into Thursday's showdown with the 10-2 Arizona Cardinals in a game that most Purple supporters are dreading. After the 38-7 dismantling at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, even the most fervent Purple Kool-Aid drinkers are anticipating an ass kicking on Thursday and us falling to 8-5. It's possible. It's also possible the Vikings blow the Cardinals out by thirty because football is stoopid.

Di Murphy (@DiMurphyMN) of The Daily Norseman makes her weekly appearance to vent about the Seahawks game, complain that we have no healthy safeties left, talk about how Teddy Bridgewater is being shafted and if the Vikings truly have to worry about missing the playoffs.

For the second straight season, Teddy Bridgewater is operating behind a sub-par offensive line. And with the status of veterans John Sullivan and Phil Loadholt up in the air for 2016, the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings need to look for some new hosses up front in the upcoming Draft. Our man Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman) of eDraft and Cold Omaha drops some knowledge on some o-line names to keep an eye on as draft season nears. Hopefully one (or more) of these dudes can keep Teddy on his feet.

Offensive Line Prospects Include
• Laremy Tunsil, OT Ole Miss
• Ronnie Stanley, OT Notre Dame
• Taylor Decker, OT Ohio State
• Jack Conklin, OT Michigan State
• Cody Whitehair, G Kansas State
• Spencer Drango, G Baylor
• Vadal Alexander, G LSU

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings got embarrassed by the Seattle Sea-Chicken Seahawks Sunday afternoon at The Bank 38-7. The final score was not indicative of how one-sided the game was as the Purple defense gave up 38 points and 433 yards of offense to Seahawks, while Teddy and the Vikings offense was shutout and only had 4 snaps on the Seattle half of the field. It was an eye opening game for a team that has a short week and the 10-2 Arizona Cardinals on Thursday. We recap the game the was and remind ourselves that our season isn't over. Just like when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.

"Good Teams Don't Get Curb Stomped at Home" Talking Points Include:
• What does it mean to be a "true" fan?
• The Zimmer Hellfire Defense Was Non-Existent
• At Some Point Teddy Bridgewater Runs Out of Excuses
• Norv Turner Needs to be Fired
• Brandon Fusco is Terrible
• Adrian Peterson Wasn't a Factor
• Where Did Stefon Diggs Go?
• Antone Exum is Our Man

The playoffs start NOW for the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings as the remaining schedule features zero easy games starting with Sunday as we welcome the Seattle "Bad Defense and Balling Offense" Seahawks into The Bank.

Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) makes his weekly pit stop to discuss how the Purple can prevail over the Blueish-Neon Green and make a push for the 2-seed. We also chat about Warren Moon's thoughts on Teddy Bridgewater, how Mike Zimmer plans to corral Russel Wilson, Harrison Smith or Earl Thomas/Kam Chancellor, if the Vikings offense is turning into the 2012 Adrian Peterson Offense, and we predict NFL coaching changes just for the LOLs.

If the playoffs started today, the 3-seeded Minnesota Fightin' Vikings would be hosting the 6-seed Seattle Seahawks. Which makes Sunday's showdown at The Bank both a potential playoff preview and an opportunity for a statement win as the Purple look to solidify our playoff position as the 2015 season barrels on.

Dayna O'Gorman (@DaynaOG) of the NFL Female Podcast rejoins the show to talk about how her beloved Seahawks and Legion of Boom Legion of Whom will matchup against Teddy Bridgewater and The Zimmer Hellfire Defense.

We also recap her emotions after last year's Super Bowl, why Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas get more buzz than Harrison Smith, how Russell Wilson and Teddy are more similar than not, why the 2015 Vikings and the 2013 Seahawks are alike, and if young Thomas Rawls can go yard-for-yard with Adrian Peterson

The 8-3 Minnesota Fightin' Vikings took care of business against the Falcons, but have to prepare to pluck yet another bird as the Seattle Seahawks roll into The Bank on Sunday. Di Murphy (@DiMurphy) of The Daily Norseman makes her triumphant return to the show to talk about our favorite Purple Squadron.

Dranking the Kool-Aid Topics Include
• The glory of Anthony Barr and the Zimmer Hellfire Defense
• Does Adrian have a legit shot at the rushing record?
• Pro Bowler: Yea or Nah?
• Can Teddy have career day versus this formerly good defense?
• Where the heck is Mike Wallace?
• Why are the Seahawks favored?
• Can the Vikings win the two-seed?
• And much, much more.

Our Minnesota Fightin' Vikings secured their perch atop the NFC North again with a decisive 20-10 road win over the Atlanta Falcons Sunday afternoon at the sparsely populated Georgia Dome. The win put the bad taste of the Green Bay out of the mouths of Vikings fans and renews hope for the 2015 campaign as we steamroll toward the playoffs. We recap our Devils going down to Georgia.

The #AllinWithZim Talking Points Include
• First place in the NFC North (8-3)
• Do we resemble the 2013 Seahawks?
• Adrian Peterson had a Man Sized Game
• The Mandatory Teddy Bridgewater Talking Point
• Offensive Line Wasn't Bad?
• I Don't Trust Norv Turner

Black Friday shopping sucks. You should curl up with a nice podcast instead and join Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) and me as we chat about the 7-3 Minnesota Fightin' Vikings as we prepare to make Atlanta howl on Sunday. The Purple have a prime opportunity to get back up after the Packer debacle and solidify themselves as a playoff team by going into the Georgia Dome and taking care of business against the 6-4 Falcons. Fake crowd noise be damned.

Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful. It also falls on a #ThrowBackThursday, so it's good synergy to revisit one of my favorite podcast interviews, my chat with KFAN personality and Radio Voice of the Minnesota Vikings Paul Allen (@PAontheMic). The podcast has afforded me many opportunities to chat with some great guests and serve an audience of passionate Vikings football fans and for that I have a tremendous amount to be thankful for.

So sit back and enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with friends and family, watch some football, take a food coma nap, and if you have some time listen to PA and I talk some Vikings football from April (three weeks before the draft). It's funny to see where our hot takes when both right and wrong.

Ted Glover (@purplebuckeye) and Eric Thompson (@Eric_J_Thompson) of The Daily Norseman stop by to briefly reminisce about the 30-13 Sunday curbstomping, look ahead towards the pivotal matchup with the Atlanta Falcons, and chat about how to go Feastmode at Thanksgiving.

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings fell to the Green Bay "our fans own stock, tee hee" Packers 30-13 Sunday afternoon at The Bank. The game was an opportunity to show the world that the Purple were more than just a young team on the rise, but we failed to do so due to mental mistakes, penalties and poor offensive line play. Ah well. The sun still rises tomorrow and we still get a chance to boatrace the Falcons next Sunday. Life at 7-3 is still darn good. But recap the game that was.

"Blerrrggggggg" Talking Points Include
• Squirrel > Ragnar
• The Offensive Line Regressed
• Teddy Outplayed Rodgers
• Norv Doesn't Do Teddy Any Favors
• The Defense Did Not Have a Banner Day
• The Vikings Beat the Vikings with Penalties
• Eddie Lacy is Still Fat. (But Kinda Good Again)
• Kyle Rudolph Love
• Mike Wallace Shade
• Adrian Was MIA
• Not Ready For Prime Time?
• James Jones Was Wearing a Hoodie

It's almost time to party. We're only two days away from our Minnesota Fightin' Vikings welcoming in the Green Bay 2nd in the Division Packers for the biggest throwdown of the 2015 campaign. We brought in our man Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) to help get us ready for Border Battle 1.0 as well as expand on his latest piece about chlling out on Teddy Bridgewater.

Other topics include: why comparing Teddy to Alex Smith isn't necessarily an insult, how the Zimmer Hellfire Defense can put the clamps on Aaron Rodgers, why the Packers offense is suddenly anemic, what to expect from Teddy and the passing game against the suddenly not frisky so Packers defense, and why the Purple's recent record means absolutely nothing against the Green and Gold on Sunday.

Border Battle 1.0 is nearly upon us. Will the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings assert their dominance over the NFC North or will the Green Bay Packers stage a second act comeback? We welcome in Alex Gelhar (@AlexGelhar), NFL.com Fantasy Writer and Packer apologist, to the show to dissect who will be Ronda Rousey and who will be Holly Holm Sunday afternoon at The Bank. (We're obvious Holly Holm.)

We chatted about what Aaron Rodgers' deal is, if Adrian Peterson can keep up his historic 2012 pace, where the Vikings' passing game is going wonky, how the Zimmer Hellfire Defense matches up against the Packers offense, and much much more. Also I bug the heck out of Alex about my subpar fantasy team because YOLO.

Di Murphy (@DiMurphyMN) of The Daily Norseman joins us for her weekly spot to talk about the Purple as we scheme on how to defeat the Green, Yellow and Blaze Orange.

Di and I chatted about what it's like to have the #1 Defense in the NFL, how Adrian is back and on pace to win the rushing title (almost by default), why Kyle Rudolph should be benched forever, what Teddy and Norv need to do to get this passing game on fleek, and we play America's newest favorite game What Pisses Di Off More?

Our Minnesota Fightin' Vikings (7-2) are alone at the top of the NFC North. Breath. It. In, Vikings Fans.

The Purple secured our perch with a 30-14 (but really 34-14 if Kyle "18.5M GTD" Rudolph wasn't a thing) road win over the upstart Oakland Raiders. The defense and running game paved the way for the fifth straight Vikings win and all the momentum as we roll back home to take on the Green Bay Packers next Sunday afternoon at The Bank. Damn it feels good to be a gangsta right now...

We Survived The Black Hole Talking Points Include
• Dat Zimmer Hellfire Defense is on Fire
• Adrian Peterson is Legit Again
• Teddy “WON” the First Teddy-Carr Bowl
• WTH ARE THE WIDE RECEIVERS?!

We talked about the Derek Carr-vs-Teddy Bridgewater debate, how our former boy Bill "3x5" Musgrave is doing things in Oakland, why the Zimmer Hellfire Defense™ vs said offense is the key to Sunday's matchup, how the Raiders defense can get got by Teddy and the Vikings, and I demand gratitude from Asher as we saved his franchise from the stank of Troy Williamson (because you know Al Davis would've loved that speed).

MOVING ON! The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings (6-2) are tied for the 5th best record in the NFL and have a share of the NFC North lead as we roll into Oakland to take on the suddenly not terribad Oakland Raiders and fellow sophomore quarterback phenom Derek Carr.

We welcome Di Murphy (@DiMurphyMN) of The Daily Norseman back in to talk about the Lamarcus Joyner cheap shot on Teddy, the reputation of Gregg Williams and Jeff Fisher, how we can get a win Sunday in The Black Hole, and the absurdity of Stan Kroenke vs The Media's #Bathroomgate.
