The Road to 50 — About the Labor: Episode 48

BJ Reidell and Drew Mahowald welcome back Austin Belisle to the show to discuss the announcement that life-long Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway will retire from the National Football League. The trio of Vikings Territorians send No. 52 to “the football afterlife” through their personal memories, what made him effective on the gridiron, how he affected the team beyond his football talent, a back-and-forth on what his “Vikings Headstone” will read, speculation regarding how much his departure affects the team moving forward and who the likely candidates are to take on his essentially unfillable leadership role.

The guys also offer their takeaways from the NFL combine, but that’s irrelevant here.

PRIMARY TALKING POINTS

  • Welcome Back: Austin Belisle Returns to the ATL Podcast (2 Minutes)
  • Chad Greenway: A Universally Beloved, Career-Long Minnesota Viking (38 Minutes)
  • NFL Combine: Takeaways, Reactions and Determining Relevance (8 Minutes)
  • Until Then, Take Care: Drew sends us on our way … with a littttttle help… (4 Minutes)
  • (Yes, we seriously did not discuss the Adrian Peterson-New England Patriots “ordeal”)

The Road to 50 — About the Labor Episode 47

BJ Reidell and Drew Mahowald discuss everything from Sharrif Floyd’s ominous future with the Minnesota Vikings to the savagery of putting peas on a pizza. In between the guys celebrate the release of Adrian Peterson, review a handful of NFL combine weigh-ins and answer a pair of open-ended questions. Episode 47 also shines a light on Drew not knowing what a pear is and a bit of a twist to the end of the show. The boys are back, and they’re cookin’ with gas now, folks.

PRIMARY TALKING POINTS

  • The guys trash Adrian Peterson one final time for old time’s sake
  • Drew doesn’t seem to know what a pear is?
  • Sharrif Floyd: Comin’ Back or Gettin’ Gone?
  • Reviewing a handful of prospects’ Combine weigh-ins
  • Two fantastic open-ended questions are answered thoroughly
  • BJ and Drew announce what about their podcast game they will be giving up for Lent

mock draft

Mock Drafts. So hot right now. That’s why I teamed up with the smartest draft mind in the South Metro, Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman), and did one up. Parameters are simple: We alternated picks for the first round of the draft and come on the show to talk about our thought process behind our selections. Luke’s reasoning is in-depth and studied, while mine has as much logic behind it as the secretary in your office always winning the March Madness Pool by picking winners based on their mascot. Yeah… All of the picks are listed below.

All that and other “With the First Pick….” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

The NFL Draft is less than two months away! And with the Underwear Olympics done and only Pro Days left, it’s starting to get down to crunch time in the draft process. Fortunately we have our #Elite tour guide Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman) of eDraft and Cold Omaha back up in the house to discuss all things draft and combine.

All that and other “Doctson All Up In That Business” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

ALL Vikings talk on this special cross-over episode of the Purple FTW! Podcast and my new project The Andy Carlson Show. Love talking about all sports and all topics on the new show, but we all know that the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings is my wheelhouse (or at least mediocre wheelhouse).

We talked about upcoming Vikings free agency, what the heck to do with Mike Wallace, and pontificate about my two draft crushes and how Trader Rick can come up with both of them.

If you like what you hear, please feel free to subscribe to the show on iTunes and Stitcher. Love ya!
