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.

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.

Minnesota Vikings-Indianapolis Colts

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings saw their playoff hopes all but disappear Sunday as the Indianapolis Colts laid the smack down on the Purple at Historic US Bank Stadium. The Vikes are still “mathematically” alive, but the team looks mentally checked out and ready to mail in the rest of 2016. We recap the Week 16 debacle.

Today’s ‘Holy Hell, What Just Happened’ Talkers Include:
• The Return of Adrian Peterson was _____.
• The Defense Was to Blame Today
• Sam Bradford is Blameless
• The Offense Reverted to Adrian Ball
• What the Hell Happened to Anthony Barr?
• Calling Out Everson Griffen
• Guys Who Didn’t Quit
• Hey Anthony Harris
• Mike Zimmer & Rick Spielman Aren’t on the Hotseat. But…
• So What Now?

All that and more “YOU AS COLD AS ICE” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

That 5-0 start really skewed perceptions, huh? Here we are, sitting at 7-6, with a 19 percent chance of making the playoffs. It’s been a rocky ride, to say the least, and there’s no knowing how it’ll end. One thing’s true, though — 2016 has been a disappointing season for the Minnesota Vikings.

The offseason found our cups full of Purple Kool-Aid; Teddy Bridgewater was set to take the “next step,” Adrian Peterson had just won his third rushing title, and Mike Zimmer’s defense was on the brink of dominance. Some of that optimism took hold, but for the most part, expectations dissipated with every devastating injury.
