Purple FTW! Podcast: Scooping Out Bradford's Knee with Darren

What is it with Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings quarterbacks and knees? For the latest on Sam Bradford’s banged up left knee, we brought in the big guns with Darren “Doogie” Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) of KSTP Sports and The Scoop Podcast. Doogie and I chatted about the latest rumblings around Bradford’s injury, how many games Case Keenum could start and the team still make the playoffs, iif the Vikings had inquired about other available quarterbacks, and how Teddy Bridgewater coming off the Physically Unable to Perform list plays a part in this 2017 Greek tragedy. Plus some Tramaine Brock, Michael Floyd, and Alex Boone tidbits.

All that and more “Take No Action for Lamar Jackson” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Wow, what a fun day! Lots of action. With roster cuts already in progress, here’s a last-minute Vikings 53-man roster projection, which includes Friday’s trade for cornerback Tramaine Brock:

Quarterback
  • Sam Bradford
  • Case Keenum
  • Teddy Bridgewater (PUP)

The Vikings rolled with two quarterbacks last year and I don’t see that changing this year. Taylor Heinicke is practice squad eligible and I don’t see teams lining up to snag him off waivers. Plus, there’s always Mitch Leidner.

Skol Scale

Vikings Territory staffer Drew Mahowald presents the third edition of his brand new segment for the 2017 season, the Skol Scale.

The preseason is finally here. Full uniforms are on and pads are clashing and stadiums are filling with fans.

But preseason football isn’t always the best. In fact, most preseason games are downright ugly because offenses are still disorganized and not yet established. This calls for low-scoring games and defensive struggles.

It was no different for the Vikings in their first preseason game of 2017 at Buffalo. The offense sputtered for the most part and both defenses had their way. Ultimately, Minnesota came away with a 17-10 win.

The fan base nonetheless reacted as if the Earth itself was caving in after a mere three series for the first-team offense netted zero points. WELP, THE OFFENSIVE LINE IS STILL BURNING GARBAGE, MIGHT AS WELL GIVE UP ON THE SEASON. OH, AND BRADFORD CHECKED DOWN THAT ONE TIME. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THIS DUDE IS TRASH.

Hey, you, person reading this: calm down. It’s preseason. The 0-16 Lions went 4-0 in the preseason.

In this edition of the Skol Scale, I won’t even mention the first time on either side of the ball (other than who earned first-team reps at various unresolved spots). It’s not worth it after literally one quarter. (If you want dramatic overreactions, read Sam’s post from a couple of days ago. WARNING: THE SATIRE READING GLASSES ARE REQUIRED. Just check the comments for proof).

I will instead mention a few individual performances that stuck out for better or for worse. A number of bubble players helped their cause for a roster spot, while a few others struggled.
