Minnesota Vikings - Dallas Cowboys

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings need to come out Guns (N’ Roses) blazing this Thursday versus the NFC top dog Dallas Cowboys to have any hope of saving their season. To help us figure out how the Purple can get back to Paradise City, we brought in Sweet Child O’ Mine Arif Hasan to the Blue Door Pub. Arif and I talked about the Live and Let Die offensive line, how the defense’s Appetite for Destruction is back, and whether or not the Vikings 2016 season will be Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door after Thursday’s Color Rush as we Welcome Dallas to the Jungle.

We also chatted about a lot of other Vikings related items that I couldn’t think of GNR puns for. So there ya go.

All that and more “All We Need is Just a Little Patience” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Mankato Minnesota Vikings

Had time to kill on a Sunday afternoon (and I don’t golf), so I swung on down to Mankato to take in the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings afternoon practice. 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?” (This is also the first pod where we got rained on and Arif list trying to move a patio umbrella.)

• How’s Teddy Deep Ball Looking?
• Adam Thielen Rising?
• Jabari Price’s Place on This Team

Didn’t Tony Sparano hear that Dan Campbell was the new Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings offensive line coach?……

As we dive into the offseason for the Purple, Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) joins us for his last weekly spot of the season. We chat about what the hell happened with The Shank at the Bank, what the Vikings’ priorities should be in free agency and the draft, and why this young team could/should/will contend for the Lombardi in 2016.

All that and other “RETURN OF THE JIMMY GAROPPOLO DROP” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings have revenge on their mind and would love nothing more than to dispatch the Seattle Seahawks Tarantino style. Like Kill Bill style. Or the end of Inglorious Basterds style. (No spoilers for The Hateful Eight). To do so, the Purple will have to play a hateful 3.5 hours (just like the damn movie) and our man Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) is back in the building to talk about how Zimmer and the Reservoir Dogs can get it done on Sunday. Pulp Fiction.

Arif and I run through how the Seahawks can get got, answer a few of your Twitter Questions, discuss my controversial playoff coach power rankings, and pick who we want to see in the Super Bowl (if the Vikings somehow don’t make it).

I also complain about sweet potato fries. They. Are. Garbage.

All this and other “This is a Bud Grant Game” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
