Andy has finished up Part 3 of his Season Wrap-Up Extravaganza! You can listen to Part Two here and Part One here. From Andy, this is what Part 3 promises:

We round out our 2014 Vikings Wrap Up Extravaganza trilogy with an EPIC trilogy of those you know and love.

Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL), Editor for Vikings Territory & Senior Writer at Vikings Journal joins us in segment one to eulogize the 2014 Vikings as well as look forward to a promising 2015.

At intermission, I regale you with a jaunty tune while paying up on my bet from Week 16 with Frank from The MN Skinny (@MNSkinny).

Then Di Murphy (@DiMurphyMN) and Ted Glover (@purplebuckeye) of The Daily Norseman bring it on home with some piping hot Vikings, shoe, and Buckeye takes. (Go Ducks)

All of this and other shenanigans on Part 3 of the 2014 Vikings Wrap Up Extravaganza!

Somehow, the 2014 season is long over and we’ve already watched the wildcard playoff games come and go. Aside from the Detroit vs. Dallas game, the playoffs have kind of been a bore this year. I had hoped Cincinnati would finally do something in the post season, but Andrew Luck’s awful (glorious?) beard overcome all.

Because there is very little news coming from Winter Park this time of the year, I wanted to hand out some end of the year ‘awards’ for the heck of it. This is the first part of a series where that leads up to naming the 2014 Vikings MVP.

Today, we’ll look at two categories specifically.

If you haven’t noticed in my “Links of the Week” segments, I am a big fan of a somewhat recent addition to the plethora of Vikings entertainment options, the Purple For The Win Podcast masterminded by Andy Carlson.

When it comes to football coaching positions the State of Florida has a lot of “Help Wanted” ads being placed these days.

One vacancy, the offensive coordinator position with the Jacksonville Jaguars, could end up being a landing spot for a guy currently employed by the Minnesota Vikings.

Reports indicate that Vikings running backs coach Kirby Wilson is in consideration for the open spot.  Wilson just finished his first season with the Vikings and earned some praise for navigating the wavey waters that was Minnesota’s backfield this season.

Wilson has never been an offensive coordinator in the NFL and his main competition reportedly includes the likes of Greg Roman.

In addition to signing cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke, the Vikings announced they have signed two other players. One is former Texas Tech defensive end Leon Mackey and the other is former Tennessee Titan, Indianapolis Colt and Morehouse college defensive tackle Chigbo Anunoby. What I can glean from them as we head into the offseason and build a 90-man roster below.
