Purple FTW! - Zimmer Loves Teddy and Vikings Draft Simulation (ep. 365)

Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer spoke to the media on Wednesday at the NFC coaches breakfast (with no omelet bar, but I digress). Zim had some interesting things to say about Teddy Bridgewater, who recently released a video of him throwing, and Sam Bradford, who is also a person. We decode some of his statements as well as dip our toe into the Mock Draft bidness later in the show.

Today’s Talkers Include:
• Decoding Mike Zimmer’s Comments
• Impossible to Keep Both Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford in 2018
• Scott Crichton Was a Bust Spielman Can’t Afford
• Get Ready for a Tough Negotiation with Xavier Rhodes
• 7-Round Vikings Draft Simulation via Fanspeak [Results Here]

All that and more “*Sniffle* That’s My Quarterback” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

One of Rick Spielman’s 2014 third round Draft selections is set to continue his role as part of a running back committee. The other is Scott Crichton who has been released, according to reports, after three seasons with the team that featured little to nothing in the way of production.

In fairness to Crichton, defensive end has been a loaded position for the Vikings throughout his tenure, and injuries have kept him off the field too much to form any true evaluation of his talent. While the fan base often harbored high hopes for the former Oregon State player, it just never came to fruition.

The move to release Crichton comes on the heels of the organization giving veteran defensive end (and rotational weapon) Brian Robison an extension that has him under contract at a reduced rate through 2018.

Minnesota Vikings Jerick McKinnon Usain Bolt

Usain Bolt is cool and all, but he’s no Jerick McKinnon. I open the show with an opining love letter to #21 and how I hope the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings will actually use him this year. Then we turbo through a couple roster battles that I’m keeping an eye on. There’s a lot of suss out over the next few weeks for the Vikes.

Battle Talking Points Include
• Joel Stave vs Taylor Heinicke
• Matt Asiata vs CJ Ham
• Adam Thielen vs Jarius Wright
• David Morgan II vs Rhett Ellison
• Willie Beavers vs Everyone
• Scott Crichton vs Everyone
• Emmanuel Lamur vs Edmond Robinson
• Marcus Sherels vs Everyone
• Antone Exum vs Jayron Kearse

All that and other “Two Men Enter, One Man Leaves” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
