Regardless of how things play out over the next few weeks, an extremely turbulent 2016 season has left the Minnesota Vikings roster scarred and full of question marks, meaning a dramatic offseason is surely ahead. Before we speculate (and we will speculate) on which subtractions and additions can lead to a more successful year, we asked our panel to instead give their insight as to which Vikings are the most secure in their employment status for the season ahead.


Taking all things into consideration, including injuries and contracts, which five Vikings would you say are the safest to return in 2017 given this has the makings of an unpredictable offseason?

And another one bites the dust.

The hits just keep on coming for the Minnesota Vikings. Just a few days following an announcement stating defensive tackle Tom Johnson would miss the remainder of the season due to a torn hamstring, the Vikings placed rookie cornerback and 2016 second-round pick Mackensie Alexander on injured reserve.

Undrafted rookie running back CJ Ham, who has spent the duration of the year on Minnesota’s practice squad, was signed to the active roster to fill the spot voided by the Clemson product.

So sad to even have to write this but the Vikings lost again. This was a very tough loss against the Colts only scoring six points the entire game. Unfortunately with this sad news comes the fact that the Vikings have to win their next two games in order to even have a chance at going to the playoffs.

Hopefully the Vikings will work on winning their next two games, starting this Saturday playing against the Green Bay Packers.  If, but really when, the Vikings win this game, it will be the first time since 2009 that the Vikings have won both games against the Packers in one season.

This weekend the Vikings are playing on Christmas Eve and when thinking of this season something that first comes up is the love you feel for your family and the extra time you get to share with them. Since Christmas Eve and Christmas are during a weekend, I do not really have extra time off from work so I wanted something that I could easily make with Adam so we can spend some extra time together.

Minnesota Vikings-Green Bay Packers

Christmas Eve is the Little Big Horn for the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings as they clash with the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. For some insight on the enemy, we enlisted Ian Kenyon (Bleacher Report) to talk about the suddenly resurgent Pack, how Aaron Rodgers is magically healthy, and if Cordarrelle could be used like Ty Montgomery (probably too late, but still love the idea). Later on we debut our annual Christmas/Holiday song. Apologies for the lump of coal in your ear canal.

All that and more “Silent Night is Ruined!” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
