Disclaimer: Buyer beware. Leonard Floyd is a raw but productive edge rusher who may not appear to be a perfect fit for the Vikings, but with Mike Zimmer at the helm anything is possible.

We’re in offseason mode, but my ego can’t take not talking for a few days…. That’s why we put together a short Blitz Edition of the podcast to go over some latest Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings news and notes. We dig into Pat Shurmur interviewing with the team and what that could mean for Scott Turner, the Vikings making a change in strength and conditioning, Everson Griffen finally makes a damn Pro Bowl, and we look ahead at the 2016 schedule!

All that and other “Evan Marcus is a scary looking mofo” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

The first step in the offseason process is the Reese’s Senior Bowl down in Mobile, AL. Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman) is heading down there for another year of coverage, so why not have him preview all that goes on during the week of the premiere offseason bowl game.

We dive into the week from a media coverage perspective, how players can hurt/help their stock, why practices are WAY more important than the game, how interviews can be even more important than anything on the field, and we also highlight some players to watch for — especially from a Vikings fan perspective.

All that and other “Carson Wentz is gonna get PAID” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

Didn’t Tony Sparano hear that Dan Campbell was the new Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings offensive line coach?……

As we dive into the offseason for the Purple, Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) joins us for his last weekly spot of the season. We chat about what the hell happened with The Shank at the Bank, what the Vikings’ priorities should be in free agency and the draft, and why this young team could/should/will contend for the Lombardi in 2016.

All that and other “RETURN OF THE JIMMY GAROPPOLO DROP” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

Read all of Arif’s stuff at The Daily Norseman and Vikings Journal as well as listen to his podcast Norse Code.

The season ended abruptly for the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings in (sadly) typical Minnesota Fightin’ Viking fashion as Blair Walsh shanked the game-winning field goal out of bounds on the 18th tee. However, a few days removed we can appreciate the 2015 season for what it was: a solid step forward for a young and hungry team under a coach we completely trust. That’s a lot more than most fanbases have to hang their hats on as our offseason begins. Di Murphy (@DiMurphyMN) of The Daily Norseman joins the show to put a bow on the Purple’s 2015 campaign.

We talk about why it wasn’t ALL on Blair Walsh, Adrian Peterson’s fumbling history rears its ugly head once again, what Teddy Bridgewater needs to do to become a bigger redzone threat, how the Vikings beat Seattle in every aspect of the game Sunday, and what our priorities are in free agency and the draft.

All that and other “Bye, Jeff Davidson” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.
