Mankato Lovin' LIVE from the Boulder Tap House [PODCAST] - 1500 ESPN Twin Cities

The Purple FTW! Podcast has descended upon Mankato for Minnesota Vikings Training Camp. We set up shop at Boulder Tap House, our home away from home, and Andy and Producer Allie welcomed in Eric Thompson (The Daily Norseman) and Arif Hasan (Zone Coverage) to recap some random Purple tidbits. The crew chatted about Sam Bradford and Mike Zimmer’s dap fail, Laquon Treadwell’s hamstring injury (which may or may not have been caused by Antone Exum), Riley Reiff’s back “twinge”, Dalvin Cook living up to the hype, and the Michael Floyd Redemption Tour. Plus who would prevail in a Twin Cities sports media Anchorman-style rumble.

All that and more “Hi, Megyn Kelly” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Cracking a 53-man roster as a rookie late-round draft pick will always be an uphill battle in the NFL.

Players of this variety have very little room for error, as they typically enter the league with very low expectations. As a result, 5th-, 6th- and 7th-round selections must often force their new coaches to pay more attention to them — and Minnesota Vikings rookie Stacy Coley certainly appears to have accomplished this task.
