Purple FTW! Podcast: 9 Under the Radar Vikings Training Camp Questions (ep. 381)

Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings Training Camp is less than two weeks away and all of the main storylines have already been beaten to death. Will Laquon Treadwell rebound in year 2? Will Teddy Bridgewater start the year on the PUP? Can Anthony Barr earn his 5th year option? Can the offensive line not be garbage this season? Blah blah blah. So today we decided to take a deeper dive into 9 under the radar training camp questions that I’m interested in.

Today’s Talkers Include:
• What if Trae Waynes or Mackensie Alexander are bad?
• What’s gonna happen with Taylor Heinicke?
• Is Joe Berger still #Good?
• What’s B-Rob’s role in 2017?
• Is this finally the year for Marcus Sherels?
• Does Tre Roberson crack the 53-man roster?
• Is this it for Antone Exum?
• Which UDFA will make the roster?
• Who’s the punter/kicker gonna be?

All that and more “How’s Teddy Look?” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Podcast, Minnesota Vikings, Vikings, Andy Carlson, @AndyCarlsonShow, Podcast, Vikings Territory, 1500 ESPN, PodcastOne, Mike Zimmer, Sam Bradford, Rick Spielman, Pat Shurmur, Blair Walsh, Washington, Kirk Cousins, Stefon Diggs, Jake Long, Tony Sparano, TJ Clemmings, Eric Kendricks, Jamison Crowder, Jordan Reed, Harrison Smith, Mackenzie Alexander, Anthony Barr, Xavier Rhodes,

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings that started out 5-0 have gone into hiding like Dave Chappelle right after Chappelle’s Show went off the air. The Vikes played a back and forth skirmish with Washington by the Potomac, but ultimately lost 26-20. There are a lot of hard questions that need answering as the Purple drop to 5-4 on the season and just watched the idle Detroit Lions move into first place in the division. We’ll try and talk it out.

Today’s “Is Wayne Brady Gonna Have to Choke the Vikes?” Talking Points Include
• Zimmer FINALLY Has to Take Some of This Blame
• The Mandatory Blair Walsh Talking Point
• How Teams Have Been Neutralizing this Defense
• Week 2 of the Shurmur Offense Was _____.
• Sam Bradford is Seeing Ghosts
• Stefon Diggs Is Turning Into a Monster
• Twitter Qs
• The Lions Are 1st in the NFC North Right Now
• Looking Ahead at the Schedule

All that and more “We make the terror.” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
