Another win in the bag!

The Vikings are doing amazingly well this season being 5-0 and the only undefeated team in the league (thank you Eagles and Broncos for losing). We are giving every other team a run for their money and having one of the best seasons we have had in a long time.

There is no game this week meaning the team should be well rested next week to continue to win every game but just because the team is resting, doesn’t mean our tummy’s need to rest.

This week I picked milkshakes because they are so easy to make and something a lot of people don’t think about making on their own. The other great thing about milkshakes is that since they are so quick and easy to make, they can easily be personalized so everyone can have the type of milkshake they want.

Minnesota VIkings Film

Coping with the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings Bye Week Blues with a fun little film session with my man Luke Inman of Cold Omaha. Luke is a prodigious breaker downer of the tape and we sat and looked back at a few major plays from the first five games of the Purple’s season. What makes this potentially all-time great Zimmer defense tick? Why is Sam Bradford finding quick success here in Minnesota? How is the offensive line THIS terrible? Tape don’t lie. Follow along with the clips listed below.

All that and other “WELL HELL YES IT’S BOLD” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

This week, Sam confronts his detractors, makes a run at the world record for air quotes, and ponders the merits of putting “Sr.” on a jersey. This and more on the bye week episode of Bump & Run. Do the right thing—for your team and your country—and watch it.

Minnesota Vikings-Judd Zulgad-Andy Carlson

The Bye Week has befallen the 5-0 Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings as fans of the Purple will now be forced to actually spend time with their families or something… But no week off for us as Judd Zulgad (Mackey & Judd) stopped by Blue Door Pub University to hang out, have a burger/beer, and talk a little Vikings.

Judd & I chatted about how this 2016 squad stacks up against other great Purple teams, if Sam Bradford is the long-term answer, why so many owners miss the mark when hiring head coaches, if Xavier Rhodes is on his way (or already) a top-tier NFL cornerback, my theory about Matt Kalil not loving football, where Teddy Bridgewater plays in 2018, the resurgence of Cordarrelle Patterson, and snuff films.

All that and other “Mackey Andy & Judd” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Adam Thielen and Cordarrelle Patterson each caught touchdown passes to help the Vikings cruise to a 31-13 victory over the Houston Texans. With leading receiver Stefon Diggs out with a groin injury, Thielen hauled in seven passes for a career-high 127 yards and Patterson looked impressive even as a true red zone target.

The Vikings ran eight plays in the red zone (five passes and three runs) on three possessions scoring two touchdowns and one field goal.

Through five weeks the Vikings have scored seven touchdowns on 13 red zone opportunities. With a red zone efficiency percentage of 54.85 percent on the season, the Vikings currently rank 18th in the NFL in that category.
