Purple FTW! Podcast: Vikings-Washington Recap: Ragnarok (ep. 455)

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings offense came alive Sunday in suburban Maryland as the Purple went out and got a statement win on the road against Washington. We saw the best and worst of Case Keenum as the Houston Cougar threw for four straight touchdowns before chasing it with two terrible interceptions to DJ Swearinger. The Zimmer Hellfire Defense staved off a late charge by Washington to close out an entertaining afternoon of football on the Potomac.

Today’s Talkers Include
• Shurmur’s Offense Came Alive!
• The Mandatory Quarterback Talking Point
• The Mandatory Thielen-Diggs Talking Point
• Defense Sorely Missed Everson Griffen
• The Offensive Line was NASTY
• Kendricks-Barr is Becoming One of the Best Linebacker Duos
• Some Brian Robison Love
• The Sweet & Sour of Mackensie Alexander
• Odds N Ends
• Coming Up

Purple FTW! Podcast: Vikings-Washington Preview feat. Sung Min Kim + Offshore Insiders (ep. 454)

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings retake the field Sunday against upstart Washington somewhere in suburban Maryland. The Vikes are 6-2, but Jay Gruden’s squad is coming of an emotional win in Seattle and are fighting to stay afloat in the tight NFC playoff race. To help us preview the game, we brought in friend of the show/Washington fan Sung Min Kim (@Sung_MinKim) of the Sporting News to talk about Kirk Cousins and crew. Plus Joe Duffy (@OffshoreInsider) makes his weekly stop to talk about the NFC North lines and his favorite bet of the weekend.

Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings have mercifully released kicker Blair Walsh to the boisterous cheers of a Purple fanbase who demanded blood, anyone’s blood, for this four-game losing steak. So what now? Walsh was indeed under performing, but he didn’t play offensive line, running back, or defense. There are still many items on this suddenly 5-4 football team that need addressing beyond punting a kicker with three years left on his contract.

Eric Thompson (The Daily Norseman) joined me at Blue Door Pub to throw back some Indeeds and talk about our suddenly crappy team and how Zimmer can hopefully Make the Vikings Great Again. Also Jason the GM of BDP Como chimed in on the Vikes and what’s going down at Blue Door.

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings that started out 5-0 have gone into hiding like Dave Chappelle right after Chappelle’s Show went off the air. The Vikes played a back and forth skirmish with Washington by the Potomac, but ultimately lost 26-20. There are a lot of hard questions that need answering as the Purple drop to 5-4 on the season and just watched the idle Detroit Lions move into first place in the division. We’ll try and talk it out.

Today’s “Is Wayne Brady Gonna Have to Choke the Vikes?” Talking Points Include
• Zimmer FINALLY Has to Take Some of This Blame
• The Mandatory Blair Walsh Talking Point
• How Teams Have Been Neutralizing this Defense
• Week 2 of the Shurmur Offense Was _____.
• Sam Bradford is Seeing Ghosts
• Stefon Diggs Is Turning Into a Monster
• Twitter Qs
• The Lions Are 1st in the NFC North Right Now
• Looking Ahead at the Schedule

Minnesota Vikings - Washington - Dan Steinberg - Washington Post - DC Sports Bog

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings head to Washington (but really Maryland) to try and have their 2016 season bailed out Sunday against the professional football team that resides there. Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post’s DC Sports Bog swings by to preview the game, talk about the 4-3-1 Powerhouse by the Potomac, and let Vikings fans know if he thinks they’ll Like That on Sunday.

(I already used this “House of Vikes” theme for Episode 103, but dammit I love this show.)
