The winner of Sunday's showdown between the Detroit Lions and the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings will have an edge in the early NFC North race. Will the Purple seize that edge and defend Historic US Bank Stadium? We dive in and talk about how the Vikings can get a win on Five Things Friday (tease: Riley Reiff Revenge Game narratives). Plus let's make some money this weekend as Joe Duffy (@offshoreinsider) stops by for his weekly best bets.

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings mercifully wrap up the preseason Thursday night against the Miami Dolphins at Historic US Bank Stadium. To ramp up for this titanic struggle we brought in Oscar Hazell (@OscarHazell) of The Miami Pod to run through the opposition and get his take on the Vikings backups (unless the starters play for some reason.... Zimmer...). Plus I make the case that 2017 is (finally) the season the Vikings cut/trade wide receiver Jarius Wright.

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings were back in town this week to start the first of three sets of Organized Team Activities before mid-June's mandatory mini-camp. Tuesday's practice lit #VikingsTwitter ablaze with video of Teddy Bridgewater taking snaps. I pontificate about that along with several other OTA talkers. Later in the show, we bring in Joshua Johnson (@DFF_Cog) to talk some fantasy implications about the young Vikes. Plus a clip of Matt Vensel (@MattVensel) of the Star Tribune and I chatting about Mike Zimmer's absence from OTAs due to his 8th eye surgery and both his short and long-term prospects with the team.

It's a dark day for Minnesota Vikings fans as Teddy Bridgewater suffered what appeared to be a serious non-contact knee injury Tuesday at practice. Serious enough that an ambulance was called in and practice was cancelled after only 25 minutes. Sam Ekstrom (@SamEkstrom) phoned in from Winter Park to give us the details on the the ground and I examine what the Vikings quarterback position (Shaun Hill, Taylor Heinicke, Free Agent TBD), the offense, and overall season outlook shifts with Teddy out.

Teddy Bridgewater didn't play in a game that doesn't matter, but Vikings fans still freaked out. The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings mercifully ended their late start game with the Seattle Seahawks. Here are a few half-awake thoughts.

Tonight/This Morning's Talking Points Include:

• Shaun Hill Looked Good Enough
• WTF, Joel Stave
• Well Hello Cordarrelle Patterson
• Adam Thielen is WR3. Period.
• Lack of Running Game This Preseason is Worrisome
• Kyle Rudolph Is Alive
• CJ Ham is RB4
• Vikings Defense Played Well, BUT....
• Everson Wants 20 Sacks and Might Get It
• Danielle Hunter is a Man
• We're In Good Hands with Our Backup Defensive Tackles
• LOL Antone Exum
• Michael Griffin Time with the ones with Harrison
• Terence Newman is no longer a starting caliber CB. Major regression from 2015.
• Secondary Cannot Catch
• Marcus Sherels Saved Us From Preseason Overtime
• Blair Walsh finally kicked a 27-yard FG
• Jeff Locke was Horrible

3) Can Treadwell Build on a Solid Debut
4) Can Nick Easton Make the Squad
5) Is the Andre Smith-TJ Clemmings
6) Will Adam Thielen Solidify Self as WR3?

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?"

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?

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.

All that and other "Cris Carter Was Slow Too....." nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.
