This whole losing thing is really starting to get old. Maybe the Minnesota Vikings could come up with a few plays this Sunday to actually end the game with more points than their opponent?

Strange concept, but if done right, it may work.

The Vikings came close last week, holding the Detroit Lions to three points and 36 total yards in the second half until their very last two drives. But unfortunately, it was those last two drives that ended up winning the game for the Lions and handing Minnesota their third straight loss of the season.

Now in order for the Vikings to avoid losing four games in a row this weekend against the Washington Redskins, there are a few suggestions they may want to take into consideration.

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.

Minnesota Vikings-Philadelphia Eagles

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings kinda shart the bed Sunday in Philadelphia, racking up their first loss of the season 21-10 in a game that wasn’t even that close. Sam Bradford didn’t show well in his return to Philly (play calling and the offensive line didn’t help) and the Zimmer Hellfire Defense got after Carson Wentz, but missed opportunities and mental errors hallmarked the first L of the 2016 campaign.

The Vikings Were The Night Man Talking Points Include:
• This Was a Failure in All Phases
• This Offensive Line is Why the Vikings Will Not Win a Super Bowl
• More Like Sam BADford Today
• Norv Went Back to Being Norv
• Now We Get to See What Kind of Coach Zimmer Is
• Special Teams Were “Special”
• Matt Asiata Appreciation Talking Point
• Even More Injuries
• I Kinda Respect Carson Wentz’s DGAF Attitude
• How Will this Team Rebound?

Minnesota VIkings Film

Coping with the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings Bye Week Blues with a fun little film session with my man Luke Inman of Cold Omaha. Luke is a prodigious breaker downer of the tape and we sat and looked back at a few major plays from the first five games of the Purple’s season. What makes this potentially all-time great Zimmer defense tick? Why is Sam Bradford finding quick success here in Minnesota? How is the offensive line THIS terrible? Tape don’t lie. Follow along with the clips listed below.
