Minnesota Vikings vs. Miami Dolphins

The (2-1) Vikings close out the preseason at U.S. Bank Stadium Thursday night against the (1-2) Miami Dolphins. The game is scheduled for 7pm CST.

The Vikings will open the regular season at home on Monday, September 11th against the New Orleans Saints.

Despite earning an exciting 32-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in their last preseason game on Sunday, the Vikings’ starting units were unimpressive in the win. Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer was not happy with the performance of his team.

Uncharacteristic mental mistakes plagued the first team defense as they allowed the 49ers to move the ball at will. The offense had a number of mistakes as well. Number one wide receiver Stefon Diggs had an off night, dropping two well-thrown passes from quarterback Sam Bradford. The offensive line starters struggled as well. Their performance led to three Bradford sacks.

The offensive starters have scored three points this preseason. While that may or may not be a reason to panic, the Vikings still have one more game to play before the regular season begins.

Purple FTW! Podcast: Vikings-Dolphins Preview with Oscar Hazell (ep. 406)

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings mercifully wrap up the preseason Thursday night against the Miami Dolphins at Historic US Bank Stadium. To ramp up for this titanic struggle we brought in Oscar Hazell (@OscarHazell) of The Miami Pod to run through the opposition and get his take on the Vikings backups (unless the starters play for some reason…. Zimmer…). Plus I make the case that 2017 is (finally) the season the Vikings cut/trade wide receiver Jarius Wright.

All that and more “Historic US Bank Stadium is a non-smoking building, Jay” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Minnesota Vikings-Chicago Bears - Blue Door Pub

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings turned in their 2nd sleepwalking performance of the season Monday Night in Chicago. A failure on both the offensive and defensive lines allowed the Bears to slowly grind the Purple into a slaughtered stuffed animal pulp. Head coach Mike Zimmer has to figure out a way to jump start a lethargic offense (maybe send Norv out to pasture?) and a suddenly not as dominant defense.

Sam Ekstrom (Locked On Vikings) joined me LIVE at Blue Door Pub University to wrap up and put a bow on the Monday Night Madness and help us put The Nightmare On Halloween behind us.

Well everyone, it happened. The Minnesota Vikings finally lost a game in 2016.

But this is good. Now they can focus on more important goals this season than trying to go undefeated. Like getting to a Super Bowl perhaps?

The Vikings will be looking to rebound this week against the Chicago Bears. Minnesota is 2-13 in their last 15 games played in Chicago, but this year’s Bears are about as scary as a stuffed animal found at the Vikings’ practice facility.

Before Minnesota takes the field on Monday night, there are a few things they must make sure they do in order to pick up their sixth win of the 2016 season.

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings were humbled Sunday for their first loss of the season, but the fanbase still believes head coach Mike Zimmer can Make the Vikings Great Again. To help me explain how is 1500 ESPN’s Gruesome Twosome Derek Wetmore and Phil Mackey. They joined me at Blue Door Pub University to talk some Vikes and eat some burgers (except Phil who’s doing the Whole 30 thing.)

What can be done about the offensive line (if anything)? Pete Carroll’s comments were taken EXTREMELY out of context, right? Plus a couple of random Brett Favre takes, media critiques, and a little role playing for a Sam Bradford press conference. #Chorizo
