Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings mercifully put an end to the preseason Thursday night against the St. Louis Los Angeles Rams of Anaheim. A few story lines emerged as many 4th preseason game participants did their best to scrape together a roster spot (OMG TOBY JOHNSON!), but the main story still hovering over the Purple is the quarterback void left by Teddy Bridgewater and his freak practice injury.

Purple FTW! Podcast is Joining 1500 ESPN & PodcastOne

This stupid podcast was born December 8. 2013. It was Week 14 of that disastrous season, the final one of the Leslie “But” Frazier era. Joe Flacco and the Ravens drove 80 yards in 45 seconds (in a SNOWSTORM), threw a touchdown to something-called Marlon Brown with :04 to play, and the Vikings lost 29-26. I recorded my frustration and had no idea where it was going to lead. Frankly I didn’t even know what a podcast was. The plan was to post and share this “audio recording” to a few friends and family who would get a kick out of it as we drowned our sorrows of that eventual 5-10-1 campaign. But then people started listening. Now Friday’s episode is going to be number 300. We’ve come a long way, baby.

I’m happy to announce that the Purple FTW! Podcast is joining 1500 ESPN and PodcastOne.

Teddy Bridgewater Injury

It’s a dark day for Minnesota Vikings fans as Teddy Bridgewater suffered what appeared to be a serious non-contact knee injury Tuesday at practice. Serious enough that an ambulance was called in and practice was cancelled after only 25 minutes. Sam Ekstrom (@SamEkstrom) phoned in from Winter Park to give us the details on the the ground and I examine how the Vikings quarterback position (Shaun Hill, Taylor Heinicke, Free Agent TBD), the offense, and overall season outlook shifts with Teddy out.

All that and other “Dammit” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

I just finished stuffing my face full of this dish and as this site’s unofficial taste tester, it gets my full approval! This might be the best idea Vikings Territory has ever had (at least my stomach thinks so).

Enjoy this week’s dish!
