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 – Kirk Cousins compared a Vikings TE3 to Tyler Conklin, who joined the New York Jets in March.

2 – The NFL is back with preseason football, and PPTSD breaks down the Hall of Fame game.

3 – Anthony Barr has a year to “prove it” in Dallas.

4 – In the daily video segment, Dustin Baker explains why Chris Reed may have been the contingency plan for Garrett Bradbury at center all along.

5 – Should the Vikings trade for a “third pass rusher,” particularly Malik Reed from Denver?
