TEDDY OR CASE: Who should start?

It’s the hottest debate surrounding the Vikings right now.

The points are clear on both sides of aisle.

One side argues, “Keenum is just as good as Teddy ever was,” “He’s basically 5-2 and has won four games in a row,” “Case gets the job done so roll with him,” and “the Vikings have chemistry so don’t mess with it.”

The other side argues, “Teddy has a higher ceiling and can win us a Super Bowl,” “Bridgewater was an average starter in 2015 but has better pieces around him now,” and “You need to make a decision on him for next year, so start him now and see what you have.”

It’s a very interesting debate. Both sides make valid points. Plus, it seems like everyone has an opinion.

Whatever your opinion may be, Keenum and Bridgewater are similar quarterbacks. They both make smart decisions, take care of the ball, extend plays with their feet, and make plays through the air. Even their Pro Football Focus grades are similar.

So, what really sets them apart?

Purple FTW! Podcast: Vikings Fantasy and Fantasy Vikings feat. Scott Fish (ep. 452)

At the midway point of the season, the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings are setting up for a fantasy run in 2017. But will it end up as a nightmare? Like most of Andy’s stupid fantasy teams? To dive in, we brought in friend of the show Scott Fish (@ScottFish24) of Fanball to talk about the rebirth of the site, answer some fantasy football questions (mainly react to my whining), and pontificate about the Vikings in both fantasy and real world terms.

All that and more “David Morgan is carrying my Points Per Block league” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

A look at the stat book reveals how the Minnesota Vikings offense has stacked up after eight games.

At the end of the 2016 season, the Vikings offense ranked 28th in the NFL. Despite the hardship the unit endured during what turned out to be a nightmare season, the team’s front office vowed to improve the group during the offseason.

Fast forward eight games into 2017. Sporting a new offensive coordinator, a different scheme, new personnel, and a revamped offensive line, the Vikings offense has been just that — a noticeable improvement through the first half of the season.
