Crystal Balling the Fringe Vikings Guys [PODCAST]

90-man rosters are like an episode of Game of Thrones: Not everyone is going to make it.

But what lies ahead for some of these fringe Minnesota Vikings players that are likely to be cut in the next two weeks? I do my best Miss Cleo (RIP) impression and look into my magic ball to see the future of these players. Some of their futures include football. Some include being a manager at HuHot.

All that and other “CALL ME NOW.” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Minnesota Vikings Teddy Bridgewater Injury

Teddy Bridgewater has a mysterious and sudden shoulder injury. Matt Kalil bowed out of practice Sunday. Brandon Fusco has a neck. Who the heck knows about Mike Harris. Sharrif Floyd and Eric Kendricks are perpetually banged up. Jarius Wright has a calf. Tre Roberson has a broken hand. Xavier Rhodes has a hamsting. WHAT IS HAPPENING?! WHY CAN WE NOT HAVE NICE THINGS?

Austin Belisle (@austincbelisle) of Vikings Territory joins me again to talk Teddy, preseason, and Vikings as we mercifully rumble towards the regular season.

Vikings-Seahawks Recap - So How'd Teddy Look?

Teddy Bridgewater didn’t play in a game that doesn’t matter, but Vikings fans still freaked out. The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings mercifully ended their late night fiasco in Seattle without overtime, despite Pete Carroll’s best efforts. Here are a few half-awake thoughts.

Tonight/This Morning’s Talking Points Include:
• Why Didn’t Teddy Play?
• Shaun Hill Looked Good Enough
• WTF, Joel Stave
• Well Hello Cordarrelle Patterson
• Adam Thielen is WR3. Period.
• Lack of Running Game This Preseason is Worrisome
• Kyle Rudolph Is Alive
• CJ Ham is RB4
• Vikings Defense Played Well, BUT….
• Everson Wants 20 Sacks and Might Get It
• Danielle Hunter is a Man
• We’re In Good Hands with Our Backup Defensive Tackles
• LOL Antone Exum
• Michael Griffin Time with the ones with Harrison
• Terence Newman is no longer a starting caliber CB. Major regression from 2015.
• Secondary Cannot Catch
• Marcus Sherels Saved Us From Preseason Overtime
• Blair Walsh finally kicked a 27-yard FG
• Jeff Locke was Horrible

All that and other “Shaun Hill is Trade Bait” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

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
