Purple FTW! Podcast – Episode 170 – Beating Down the Bolts – Vikings-Chargers Recap

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings savored a tasty curb stomping of the San Diego Super Chargers 31-14 Sunday afternoon at The Bank.

  1. Will be really interesting to see how Clemmings and Kalil fare against Ware and Miller this week. It could be reminiscent of the 49ers if we can’t get AD going. I am not having any of the “concern” over Teddy (which will probably escalate if we have protection problems vs Denver).

  2. Bring back blanton at least he can tackle and doesn’t hurt his teammates doing dumb stuff.

  3. I like your podcasts, you have a very good voice for it, which is not the case for most podcasts.
    I’m looking forward to your episode with Austin Shepherd’s wife, that’s be interesting for some real life perspective.
    One ding though, Barr is not like Von Miller at all. A Zimmer 3 down SLB is not like a 3-4 edge rusher at all really. They are both good at getting at the passer. I am sure Barr could do Miller’s job very well, but not visa versa. Barr is very good in coverage overall as well, I don’t know where you get the idea that he isn’t.
