Purple FTW! Podcast (general)

Your bracket is toast, time to get back to Vikings football! Tom Schreier (@tschreier3) of Cold Omaha and 105 The Ticket joins the show to talk about the latest Minnesota Vikings news, what big things are going down at the Twin Cities newest sports radio station on the rise, as well as Tom's path in the world of sports journalism at the co-founding of CO.

The Vikings continue to show that they're truly a year round spectacle as there's always news/drama brewing as we saw last week with Mike Wallace & the Pounceys, the latest staredown between Spielman and Adrian's camp, as well as Adrian birthday camel. Because why not. If AP doesn't want to be a Viking, at least he can be Aladdin.

Other Adrian Camel talking points include:
• The Mandatory Adrian Peterson talking point
• Zimmer wants  Teddy to get heavy
• Jerick McKinnon wants to "be that guy" in 2015
• Mike Wallace is a Coward according to the Pouncey brothers
• Vikings West working out – All over Social Media
• Vikings hire new assistant DL coach Rob Rodriguez (Also an unprovoked Mike Price cheap shot)
• Vikings Free Agency Update
• The Steve LaCroix Greg Jennings Joke. Not a big deal
• Feature Interview with Tom Schreier
• What is Cold Omaha?
• His start in writing. Working with 105 The Ticket
• Thoughts on Adrian
• Take on Rick's laid back Free Agency approach
• Mike Wallace vs Greg Jennings
• What can Teddy become?
• Norv Turner love. Great OC, terrible HC
• Mike Zimmer's head coaching style. Sustainable long term?
• Can Cordarrelle bounce back?
• Tom's STONE COLD HOT TAKE
• The Gauntlet
• 2015: Leading Rusher, Breakout Player & Record Prediction
• The Ultimate Christian Ponder Revenge Scenario
• Tom's favorite types of interviews & columns
• Twitter Qs
• Who should the Vikings Draft at 11?
• What's coming up from 105 The Ticket & Cold Omaha

All of this and other  shenanigans on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

We throwback to the time in 2013 during Episode 34 of the Purple FTW! Podcast when Slick Rick Spielman trades back into the 1st round (for the third year in a row) to snag potential franchise QB Teddy Bridgewater at pick 32. My joy. Is. Obvious.

Math is hard. That's why we brought Brad Davis (@DeltaBCDad) on the show to breakdown his three-part statistical analysis at Vikings Territory on the likelihood of Adrian Peterson's decline as a running back. 30-years old has been the standard age cliff for NFL RBs, but does the data suggest that Adrian will follow the trend or buck it? (No matter which team he's on)

We get into the numbers with Brad as well as talk recent offseason moves as the Minnesota Vikings, not just the NFL, have become a year round sport. #VikingsTwitter may be upset with the lack of free agent action and Jennings being cut, but the Vikings are building for beyond 2015 -- not loading up for a one year Super Bowl or bust push (ala 2009).

Teddy's the face of the franchise and hopefully will have a decade+ of success here in Minnesota. It makes sense to build a young team with him rather than fill the cap with bloated veteran contracts in an attempt to "win" free agency. Ask the Buccaneers how that worked out last year...

Other Mike "William" Wallace talking points include:
• Rick Spielman does. Not. Give. An Eff.
• Mike Wallace traded to the Vikings
• Greg Jennings: Yee Gon
• The Vikings are building for BEYOND 2015
• Missing out on Michael Johnson
• Adrian flies commercial
• Cardinals in the #TradrianPeterson derby?
• Winning Free Agency does not equal success
• Brad Davis - What was the genesis of the Adrian statistical analysis?
• Why should this trilogy interest Vikings fans?
• Standard logic says the year off will help Adrian. Legit?
• The 4 Metrics of RB Success: Yards per carry, WPA, DD, and APA
• Why were the other 33 RBs chosen for the analysis?
• What RB most resembles Adrian metrics wise?
• What do the numbers show: Decline or No Decline?
• Brad's STONE COLD HOT TAKE
• The Gauntlet
• Does Brad agree with Rick Spielman's laid back approach to FA?
• Given the choice: Jennings or Wallace?
• Over/Under 1.5 Super Bowl wins for Teddy Bridgewater as the Vikings QB?

All of this and other “when did they start using letters in math” shenanigans on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Austin Belisle (@austincbelisle) – the newest edition to Vikings Territory – joins the podcast to talk about the Minnesota Vikings and their journey through free agency, the Adrian Peterson (continued) drama, & the NFL Draft as we sail towards another season of the Purple.

The Vikings have been on the sidelines during free agency, while everyone and their mother spends like drunk sailors (*cough* Eagles *cough*), but as always we trust in Rick Speilman. It's better to win in the fall & winter than win in March. In the meantime, let that cash & cap room pile up. Make Huell and Kuby want to lay on it in the storage unit.

Other piles of cash in a storage unit talking points include:
• I replied to a Twitter troll (I rarely do)
• Vikings News
• Free Agency: Arif's live blog at Vikings Territory is "on fleek"
• Tom Johnson & Cullen Loeffler re-sign
• Shaun Hill or T-Jack as the backup QB?
• Free Agent targets the Vikings have shown interest in.
• The Mandatory Adrian Peterson Talking Point
• Bro Hug analysis
• Adrian doesn't get to demand more money from the Vikings. Period.
• My Adrian Peterson trade prediction. #LockItUp
• Robert Griffith nominated for NFLPA Executive role
• Matt Birk will be NFL Commissioner.
• Sidney Rice – Donating brain to science
• 49ers sign Jerome Simpson - Bahahahahaahah
• Austin Belisle - Why Vikings Territory?
• Free Agent Frenzy
• Is Greg Jennings the #1 receiver?
• Thoughts on Adrian
• Could McKinnon be a featured back?
• Projecting year 2 of the Teddy & Zimmer Project
• #TeamCutOrRestructure - Greenway, Jennings, B-Rob
• Draft Priorities
• Austin's STONE COLD HOT TAKE
• The Gauntlet
• Rick Swap: What would Austin do in Spielman's chair?
• Austin describes himself as a draft prospect. (Spoiler: High Motor)
• Next week on Purple FTW 106...

Brandon Warne (@Brandon_Warne) of 105 The Ticket, Fangraphs, and Sports Data LLC stops by to talk Twins baseball as well as our Minnesota Fightin' Vikings.

Went baseball today because spring is around the corner, pitchers and catchers are already at spring training, and there's only so much Adrian Peterson f***** speculation that the human mind can take. Plus what better way to wait for training camp in Mankato than grabbing a beer and watching the Twins give it their best at Target Field?

Vikings wise, the Adrian drama continues to unfold as he won his appeal in Federal Court. Even though the NFL is appealing, this will give the Vikings flexibility with what it wants to do with the 30-year old running back once the new league opens on March 10th.

Boys of Summer Talking Points Include:
• Vikings News
• The mandatory Adrian Peterson talking point
• Free Agent Cuts: Who the Vikings might chase
• Current Vikings who might get cut
• Purple FTW! Draft Wishlist – Volume 1

• Will the young guns finally emerge in 2015? (Sano, Buxton)
• Paul Molitor as a manager
• Torii Hunter: Legit or Schtick?
• Phil Hughes' attempt to repeat history
• Can Joe Mauer bounce back?
• Ervin Santana: FA splash. Worth the money?
• Twins or Wolves
• Thoughts on the 2014 Vikings Season
• Adrian's 2015 team is _____.
• If you were Spielman, what would you do this offseason?
• The maturation of Teddy Bridgewater

Lindsey Young (@LindseyMNSports) rejoins the show to talk about our Minnesota Fightin' Vikings as we head into the offseason of Year 2 of Teddy & Zimmer.

On the first installment of PURPLE FTW! JUSTICE, we make a ruling on the case of "Super Bowl XLIX".

Representing the Seattle is Dayna O'Gorman (@DaynaOG), host of the NFL Female podcast and rabid Seahawks fan. She was a member of the "12s" back when they were terrible, so you know that she's legit.

General counsel for New England is Tom Murphy (@TMurph207), operator of sportsinfusion.net and all-around Boston sports aficionado.

Both sides will present their cases and the Honorable Andrew Jerome Carlson will act as judge, jury, and executioner on this matter on the maiden voyage of PURPLE FTW! JUSTICE.

Our Minnesota Vikings went out on a high note Sunday as the Men of the North held off the Chicago Bears 13-9 Sunday at The Bank.

The Vikings end the season a 7-9 and considering all that has happened this season with injuries, Adrian, & other off field issues, 7-9 is a hell of an achievement for 1st year head coach Mike Zimmer and rookie QB Teddy Bridgewater.

The future is looking bright as Teddy looks legit and is poised to move forward as the face of the franchise. (Sorry, Adrian. #ByeFelicia)


2014 Was a Fun Ride Talkie Points Include:
• The Weekly Referendum on Teddy Bridgewater
• Mr. Mankato Love
• Asiata Appreciation
• Audie Cole Respect
• The Zimmer Hellfire Defense Rebounded
• Harrison Smith is Elite
• Jared Allen Loveletter
• Chad Greenway. The End?

A very special holiday message from Purple FTW!

***********************

'Twas a coach named Mike Zimmer, and all through his team
Mediocre was not acceptable, if you know what I mean
Teddy Bridgewater is the future, all Vikings fans hope
We felt the same about Ponder, but now we look like big dopes

The Fans will be at the bank, all snug in their Vikings gear
Hoping to end on a high note, a hip flask of fireball be near
The Bears coming in, we will put Cutler on his back
Jared Allen is coming home, but he won't get a sack

The offense is rolling, with many missing this season
Injuries and off field stuff, are all the main reasons
IN is Charles Johnson, OUT is Cordarrelle Flash
Matt Kalil is out too, next season might be his last

But that Defense is rolling, even with a few hitches
This ain't 2013, the year we all looked like... Fools
Harrsion Smith is an All-Pro, Everson should be too.
Anthony Barr's better than Clowney, who would have thought or would have knew

Mike Zimmer is blunt, and he pulls no punches
He's got no time for BS, guesses or hunches
He was the kick in the pants this team did need
Now get him some weapons to finish the deed

Teddy Bridgewater's the man, even on those skinny knees
He started driving this offense after he got the keys
Throws with anticipation, way than better than Manziel
and all of the haters Teddy can go straight to hell
“Now CJ, Now Rudolph”
Now Jennings and Wright”
On B-Rob, on Xavier
That coverage so tiught.
To the top of the North
To the top of them all
Now do your thing do your thing
Vikings Football!!!

2015 is the season we all anticipate
A division title in the offing, or at least 8 and 8
Mike Zimmer and Teddy, our future's pristine
Skol Vikings to all, and Super Bowl 2015!

Julie DiCaro (@JulieDiCaro) of 87.7 The Game Chicago stopped by to preview the Vikings-Bears season finale Sunday at The Bank.

It won't have the same cachet as the finales of Serial, Sons of Anarchy, or even Dexter. But if the Vikings (6-9) kick some Bears (5-10) ass in the final week of the season, it will go a long way to endear purple fans to Mike Zimmer and Teddy "The Future" Bridgewater even more.

We discuss our enemy in depth and probe for their weaknesses. Me thinks #6 might come up a time or two.

• The Glory of Monday Night Raw in Minneapolis

One Story. Of a young and not ready for prime time team. Told one week at a time. This is Serial Vikings.

Our Minnesota Fightin' Vikings fell 37-35 to the Dolphins Sunday afternoon at half-full Sun Life Stadium.

Mental errors, loss of composure, offensive line failures, and defensive collapses highlighted a disappointing loss as the Vikings fall to 6-9 in Zimmer & Teddy's inaugural season.

The refereeing was atrocious, yes, but a good team is able to overcome that spot. The Vikings didn't Sunday. Hopefully someday they will.

C*** Punt-Blocked Talking Points Include:
• WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED
• The Weekly Referendum on Teddy Bridgewater
• Offensive Line. Woof
• Matt “Bulldozer” Asiata
• The Defense Didn't Travel
• Keep. Your. Damn. Composure.
• Xavier Rhodes Love
• Coach Mike Zimmer
• #Purple FTW Helmet Stickers
• Condolences to the Greenway Family

All that and other "7-9 ain't bad" jibber-jabber on this edition of the #PurpleFTW Podcast!

Oscar Hazell (@OscarHazell) of Fin Depth joins us to preview Vikings @ Dolphins.

The Vikings (6-8) have a worse record than the Dolphins (7-7), but it feels like our squad has a much brighter future as anyone and everyone might be washed out in Miami come the end of the season.

We'll see if Teddy can build on his already impressive rookie résumé as he heads to Miami for a hometown homecoming. 

Salcaious South Beach Talkie points include:

Our Minnesota Fightin' Vikings fell to the Detroit Lions 16-14 Sunday at Ford Field.

The Vikings (6-8) jumped out to a 14-0 lead, but couldn't hold on as Teddy Bridgewater threw two picks, Blair Walsh missed 3 field goals (including a 68-yard game winner), and Zimmer displayed some questionable clock management skills to close out the game.

As many positives as this young team has shown this year, this is a game that good teams win. We did not Sunday, but we recap.

Close But No Cigar Talkie Points Include:
• The Weekly Referendum on Teddy Bridgewater
• Mike Zimmer's Clock Management Game
• Blair Walsh Yikes
• Matt Asiata Wasn't Terrible
• The Curious Case of Cordarrelle Patterson

It was ugly, but our Minnesota Fightin' Vikings (6-7) ground out a win vs the New York Football Jets Sunday in walkoff fashion 30-24 as Teddy Bridgewater tossed a screen to Jarius Wright and #17 did the rest on an 87-yd TD in overtime to launch the Vikings to 6-7 on the season.

We're still technically in the playoff hunt, but need to win out and have a cavalcade of things to go right to do so.

Either way, the future is looking bright with Teddy leading the way and Zimmer at the helm.

Our Minnesota Fightin' Vikings (5-7) outplayed the Carolina Panthers (3-8-1) on Sunday 31-13 to keep the Purple's very faint playoff hopes alive.

The Vikings won in all three phases, including two first half punt blocks returned for TDs by Adam Thielen and all-world Everson Griffen.

The win was a much needed boost to morale and momentum as the Vikings close out 2014.


We recap the Purple victory with talkie points that include:
• Extra Special Special Teams
• The Weekly Referendum on Teddy Bridgewater
• Everson Griffen Worth Every Penny
• That Zimmer Hellfire Defense
• Wide Receiver Assesment

Travis Hancock (@TBoneWFNZ) of The Fan Charlotte joins us to preview Sunday's matchup as the Carolina Panthers (3-7-1) roll into The Bank to take on our Minnesota Fighitn' Vikings (4-7).

The Panthers are coming off their bye, but have had 5 straight losses (and a tie) and have a lot more questions than answers at the moment.

We look to take advantage of those questions Sunday and add to Cam Newton's 32 sacks on the season (3rd most in the NFL).

Our Minnesota Fightin' Vikings fell 24-21 to the Green Bay Packers Sunday at The Bank.

It was a near run thing, but Mike Zimmer & his young squadron came up short.

The Vikings (4-7-0) faint playoff chances are getting fainter, but there are a lot of young pieces and positives to take going forward. #BrickByBrick to steal a phrase from another Minnesota football program on the rise.

The Packers (7-3) are one of the hottest teams in the NFL and what the Vikings (4-6) did is still circling the bowl somewhere near Soldier Field.

*Welp*. Despite Chicago's best efforts, the Minnesota Vikings fell at Soldier Field Sunday 24-13. Marking our 7th consecutive loss at that Godforsaken space ship on Lake Michigan.

It was a disappointing game all around for our Minnesota Fightin' Vikings who now fall to 4-6 and seemingly no longer in the mix for the playoffs.

But, as Vikings Fans always do, we shake it off and move on.

• Failure in All Three Phases – The Trident of Failure

• #FEEDMcKinnon is back in effect

Howard Sinker (@fansview) of the Star Tribune and MPR joins the podcast to take a look behind enemy lines as we preview Sunday's Vikings-Bears clash at Solider Field.

The Bears (3-6) are coming off two straight humiliating losses, fans are questioning Cutler AND Trestman's future with the team, and the locker room is on the verge of collapse. (This is all very 2013 Vikings-ish, fwiw)

Hopefully Zimmer's Wild Boyz can be the straw that breaks the proverbial camel's back on Sunday as the Vikings try to get their 1st win in Chicago since 2007.

Darren Campbell of Kick Ass Blog Vikings joins us as our (2-4) Minnesota ikings head to Buffalo for a delicious matchup Sunday vs the (3-3) Bills.

Hot Wingy Deliciousness on the level of:
• How Zimmer calling out the team can be good or backfire.
• Offensive Line misery: #TeamFlipKalilandCharlie
• Teddy is not a bust. Nor is he a Hall-of-Famer (yet)
• Keep McKinnon Free, Zim.
