Purple FTW! Podcast: Are We Still Mad About 2009? feat. Josh Pelto & Luke Inman (ep. 410)

With the New Orleans Saints rolling into Historic US Bank Stadium Monday Night to open the 2017 season, it’s impossible not to revisit the 2009 NFC Championship Game and the hard feeling many of the Vikings faithful still harbor towards the Saints, the refs, and certain players on that Purple squad. But are those feelings justified? We explore in the first half of the show because I rewatched the entire game for the first time since seeing it live with me own two eyes on January 24, 2010. Plus for some levity, the debut of our new weekly segment The Happy Hour Half-Hour, with Josh Pelto (@JoshThePelto) and Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman) having a few beverages and discussing some of the latest Vikings headlines. Sports Over Beers, if you will.

All that and more “Blame Childress” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Purple FTW! Podcast: Vikes Over Beers feat. Matt Helgeson and Logan Lafferty (ep. 409)

Actual FOOTBALL football is upon us! As the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings prepare to take on the New Orleans Saints led by future Hall of Fame running back Mark Ingram, we’re preparing for the season as well by jamming as much talk in as we can. To help us out, we welcomed in life-long Vikings fans Matt Helgeson (@MattHelgeson) and Logan Lafferty (@MrLeviathan) of the Strother Communications Group to hoist a couple of beers and enjoy some Blue Door deliciousness while talking Purple. We covered Adrian Peterson returning to Minnesota, why Alex Boone being kicked to the curb is no big thing, how Dalvin Cook could be the next big thing, and of course the mandatory Teddy vs Bradford talker.

All that and more “The Strothers Brothers!” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

The Minnesota Vikings acquired cornerback Tramaine Brock from the Seattle Seahawks in a trade, sending over a seventh-round pick to Seattle.

The Minnesota Vikings’ cornerback depth concerns did not go unnoticed by general manager Rick Spielman and the front office. So they acted.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL.com, the Vikings acquired veteran cornerback Tramaine Brock from the Seattle Seahawks to bolster the depth at the position.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport confirmed, adding that the Vikings gave up just a seventh-round pick to secure Brock.

Skol Scale

Vikings Territory content maker Drew Mahowald recaps the preseason and delivers the fourth Skol Scale reading of 2017. (NOTE: This was originally published before the the Tramaine Brock trade was reported and has since been edited.)

I warned all of you about this in my last Skol Scale post.

And yet, here we are.

The Minnesota Vikings have wrapped up their preseason, and now it’s time to ball. Actually ball. In games that matter.

I warned the fantastic and loyal readers of Vikings Territory about jumping to conclusions after preseason games. It’s unhealthy and causes unnecessary fluctuation of the heart rate. Preseason results do not correlate to regular season results. But you did it anyway.
