The Final 2016 Postgame Report [PODCAST]

BJ Reidell and Drew Mahowald (THE NEWEST WRITER AT VIKINGS TERRITORY) finish off the inaugural season of the About the Labor Podcast with some discussion and a Linval Joseph’s-worth of in-depth analysis regarding the Minnesota Vikings’ uplifting 38-10 victory over the Chicago Bears at U.S. Bank Stadium to finish with an 8-8 record on the year.


  • An Incredible stand-in performance by former Jaguars practice squader, left tackle Rashod Hill
  • Quarterback Sam Bradford takes a bow
  • Running back Jerick McKinnon finally wakes up from his season-long slumber
  • Disappointment regarding wide receiver Adam Thielen falling a hair short of 1,000 receiving yards
  • Random tangents throughout the show which sneakily act as miniature previews for what YOU should expect from BJ, Drew and the ATL Podcast twice a week and all summer long
  • One Big Thank You to All of Our Listeners for helping make it a GREAT first season of the show

About the Labor – 


Welcome to the NFL offseason — when the Minnesota Vikings failed to make the playoffs because a couple of extra points really did matter. Since it’s the (early) offseason, and the Vikings don’t have a matchup this weekend for us to seek your stance on we are debuting a new partner segment to the show to make sure our listeners are as involved in the show as they would like to be.

After listening to the podcast, there will be a poll waiting for you to voice your opinion on some facet of the show. This week, given that the offseason really hasn’t even started yet, we’re asking for you to vote in order to decide who takes home the inaugural ATL Top Take Award. While this podcast tends to revolve more around objective analysis, BJ and Drew both have a tendency to fire off multiple takes every episode.

Your job? Tell us who dropped your favorite take from this episode. We would also like to encourage you to comment below with the specific take that hit home for you — our comment section also accepts: thoughts, comments, jargon, criticism, what your favorite present was this past Holiday, your favorite 2016 Vikings offensive lineman, how old you think you will be when the Vikings finally win a Super Bowl and anything else you think will: A. Add to the conversation B. Fire Up a Debate C. Help You Get Through Monday at Work D. Make BJ Laugh
