Derek Carr

Our Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings (7-2) are alone at the top of the NFC North. Breath. It. In, Vikings Fans.

The Purple secured our perch with a 30-14 (but really 34-14 if Kyle “18.5M GTD” Rudolph wasn’t a thing) road win over the upstart Oakland Raiders. The defense and running game paved the way for the fifth straight Vikings win and all the momentum as we roll back home to take on the Green Bay Packers next Sunday afternoon at The Bank. Damn it feels good to be a gangsta right now…

We Survived The Black Hole Talking Points Include
• Dat Zimmer Hellfire Defense is on Fire
• Adrian Peterson is Legit Again
• Teddy “WON” the First Teddy-Carr Bowl
• Linval Joseph is #ELITE
• The Mandatory Kyle Rudolph Talking Point
• Harrison Brings the Boom
• The Raiders Offense is Going to be GOOD
• Replace TJ Clemmings with Austin Shepherd
• Replace Andrew Sendejo with Antone Exum Jr

I’ve been introduced to #RaidersTwitter, so today’s show art should go over real well….

It’s another Arif Hasan Friday here on Purple FTW! We chat with our man about the upcoming throwdown between the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings and the Los Angeles St. Louis Oakland Raiders. Topics covered include: the almost unprecedented level at which Linval Joseph is playing, breaking down which individual skills Derek Carr and Teddy Bridgewater are better at, how Bill “3×5” Musgrave has changed since leaving the Vikings, why Arif wants to marry Anthony Barr, and we go over Pro Bowl picks aka ALL IN FOR JOE WEBB.

All that and other “I Dare Anyone To Do THIS to Zimmer” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings (6-2) are preparing to enter palatial and historic stadium Sunday afternoon to take on the Los Angeles Oakland Raiders (4-4). To get some insight on the opposition, we welcomed in Asher Mathews (@AsherMathews) of Thoughts From the Dark Side Raiders blog to talk a little Silver and Black.

We talked about the Derek Carr-vs-Teddy Bridgewater debate, how our former boy Bill “3×5” Musgrave is doing things in Oakland, why the Zimmer Hellfire Defense™ vs said offense is the key to Sunday’s matchup, how the Raiders defense can get got by Teddy and the Vikings, and I demand gratitude from Asher as we saved his franchise from the stank of Troy Williamson (because you know Al Davis would’ve loved that speed).

All that and other “Vikings Fans are Sadomasochists!” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

The war of words between Mike Zimmer and Jeff Fisher has spilled over into the following week. I say they just settle this the old school way… Street Fighter II: Turbo Edition battle. But that’s just me…

MOVING ON! The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings (6-2) are tied for the 5th best record in the NFL and have a share of the NFC North lead as we roll into Oakland to take on the suddenly not terribad Oakland Raiders and fellow sophomore quarterback phenom Derek Carr.

We welcome Di Murphy (@DiMurphyMN) of The Daily Norseman back in to talk about the Lamarcus Joyner cheap shot on Teddy, the reputation of Gregg Williams and Jeff Fisher, how we can get a win Sunday in The Black Hole, and the absurdity of Stan Kroenke vs The Media’s #Bathroomgate.
