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!

And another one bites the dust.

The hits just keep on coming for the Minnesota Vikings. Just a few days following an announcement stating defensive tackle Tom Johnson would miss the remainder of the season due to a torn hamstring, the Vikings placed rookie cornerback and 2016 second-round pick Mackensie Alexander on injured reserve.

Undrafted rookie running back CJ Ham, who has spent the duration of the year on Minnesota’s practice squad, was signed to the active roster to fill the spot voided by the Clemson product.

Minnesota Vikings-Green Bay Packers

Christmas Eve is the Little Big Horn for the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings as they clash with the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. For some insight on the enemy, we enlisted Ian Kenyon (Bleacher Report) to talk about the suddenly resurgent Pack, how Aaron Rodgers is magically healthy, and if Cordarrelle could be used like Ty Montgomery (probably too late, but still love the idea). Later on we debut our annual Christmas/Holiday song. Apologies for the lump of coal in your ear canal.

All that and more “Silent Night is Ruined!” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
