Analyzing Adam Thielen's Most Important Wide Receiver Traits

The Minnesota Vikings’ season is set to come to a close this weekend following a divisional matchup with the Chicago Bears at U.S. Bank Stadium. Regardless of the game’s outcome, however, the Vikings will miss the postseason despite once being widely considered a strong candidate to make a deep playoff run following five consecutive victories to open the year.

Minnesota’s 2016 campaign will instead be largely remembered for the team’s historic collapse in which a once-vaunted defense could not consistently maintain a high enough level of play to overcome a myriad of injuries, frequent situational missteps and potentially the most ineffective offensive line in franchise history.

But, it will also be regarded as the season Adam Thielen evolved from special teams ace into one of the Vikings’ most dangerous offensive weapons.

Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings have nothing to play for Sunday versus the Chicago Bears, a few statistical milestones aside, but that doesn’t halt our non-sense here at Purple FTW! (nothing every does) as we roll through Episode Tree Fiddy. We talk about why it would be smart to sit Sam Bradford, why the TJ Clemmings experiment needs to end, and take an early look at how the Vikings can rebuild the much maligned offensive line through free agency at the draft before revealing our DREAM 2017 O-Line.

All that and more “Whitworth or Bust” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Minnesota Vikings-Green Bay Packers-Chicago Bears-PFF

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings are out of the playoff race, the siding is falling off the stadium, planes are skidding off of runways, and the head coach has one eye. Pretty standard with how the 2016 season has gone. We welcomed Eric Eager of Pro Football Focus into the Blue Door Pub Studios to help us limp to the finish line of this Vikings campaign. Eric and I chatted Pro Bowl, the Packers massacre, how the offensive line can be improved (fixed?), the rise of Adam Jerome Thielen, and a whole lot more.

All that and more “I was told there would be no math” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Minnesota Vikings - Green Bay Packers

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings got stuck on the runway Friday night landing at historic Appleton International Airport. They were also stuck in neutral Friday afternoon at Lambeau Field as they let the Green Bay Packers stomp all over them on Christmas Eve. The Purple are officially eliminated from playoff contention. Not exactly the holiday gift Vikings fans dreamed of, but grab some egg nog and a cookie or two and join us by the fire as we recap.

All that and more “Have Yourself a Merry Little Vikemas” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
