The sister-site to VikingsTerritory is PurplePTSD.com, and the guys and gals over there roll out the Minnesota Vikings analysis just as much as we do.

Here is some of their top content from the last couple of days:

1 – George Paton commented on the greatness of Brett Favre, and some folks perceived that as a shot at Kirk Cousins. What a world.

2 – Spotrac evidently believes the Vikings are stuck in the “middle of the road.”

3 – According to PPTSD, the Vikings better keep an eye on their Super Bowl checklist.

4 – Our daily video piece, Dustin Baker discusses five surprising players who could be cut this summer.

5 – A Vikings offensive lineman is mentioned in one of Pro Football Focus‘ “best of” lists.
