It’s a long offseason. So it makes sense to go beyond the borders of the US to cultivate additional Minnesota Vikings awesomeness. I had the good fortune to be joined by The Daily Norseman founder Christopher Gates from Germany to talk about our favorite professional football team.

We chatted about Adrian Peterson’s future with the Purple (mandatory nowadays) and what the latest statements from ownership and the front office could really mean. Reminisced about Chris’ three favorite Vikings of all time: an o-lineman sized QB from Central Florida, some kid from the mountains of West Virginia, and a pint-sized CB who started the ‘private plane watching’ trend among Vikings fans (and always had 2 pair playing 30/60 at Canterbury).

Additionally, we covered the beauty of Teddy, the leadership of Zimmer and how why he’s a rarity in NFL coaches, I call Rick Spielman a top-3 GM, and I put Chris through the tried and true Gauntlet.

All that and other “the New Vikings Stadium will kill a bald eagle” conversations on Episode 101 of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

The Hall of Fame selection process and enshrinement festivities is just another great way in which the NFL keeps us all paying attention on a year-round basis, even during the quietest of quiet periods of the offseason.

With Mick Tingelhoff officially selected to the Hall of Fame, I got to wondering who could possibly end up being the next Viking to get in. Then I had a hunch that this could end up being a greatly debated topic and figured you guys might like to hash it out in the comments section this week.

For starters, let’s review the purple fellows that have already made it to Canton:

Jake Reed Open Arms

[Note From Adam: Lindsey Young is a talented writer and true Minnesota Sports fan. Her articles around the internet have caught my eye on many occasions over the last couple of years, so I was thrilled when she reach out to Vikings Territory offering to write a guest article or two. Lindsey’s first contribution far exceeded my expectations as she sat down with one of my favorite Vikings for a one-on-one conversation. My gratitude and praise might not be enough to convince her to stick around for good, so please be sure to let her know what a great job she did in the comments section.]

Three Deep.

Use these words with Minnesota Vikings fans, and they will know exactly what you’re talking about.

In 1998, Cris Carter, Jake Reed and Randy Moss impressed the league as one of the most successful receiving trios to ever play the game.

But where are they now? On Nov. 7, Jake Reed sat down to share with fans about his time as a Viking, his insight on the current team, and his life post-football.

Here is an interesting topic for us during this Super Bowl Week that doesn’t involve Ray Lewis, murder, deer antler spray, brother-on-brother action, Joe Flacco’s political incorrectness, or a diva tight end’s complaints about how he is being used.

Instead, I want to know who you are cheering for in the upcoming contest and which former Vikings you would most like to see get a Super Bowl ring.

Randy Moss hasn’t exactly been a juggernaut reminiscent on the 1998 version of himself, but if you are like the then you still have a soft spot in your heart for the seldom used 49er receiver that once made Minnesota the most exciting football team to watch.

Playing for the Ravens, though, are two guys that were once considered to be mainstays along the offensive line in Minnesota.  Matt Birk and Bryant McKinnie are both playing for Baltimore on Sunday.  They left two very different legacies behind in Minnesota, and McKinnie may actually be cheered against by some Vikings fans, but it is hard to imagine a more deserving-of-a-ring player than Matt Birk.

So, what do you have to say?

News is flying around at the moment, but little is out there directly relating to the Vikings.

Former Vikings such as Randy Moss, Steve Hutchinson, and Ben Leber are all active as free agency nears.  Moss signed a deal that has made him a San Francisco 49er, Hutchinson is visiting the Titans with Peyton Manning, and Leber is possibly going to be an Eagle.

Even though  Moss was never on the Vikings radar, the wide receiver market took a hit on Tuesday and is looking suddenly thin.  Marques Colston reportedly re-signed with the Saints getting him $40 million over five years, with just under $20 million guaranteed.

Rick Spielman appeared on the radio at 1500 ESPN this morning and reiterated that the goal is to get younger.
