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 – Kyle Joudry discusses whether the Mond optimism as of late is real or a bunch of empty hype.

2 – Detailing Cameron Dantzler’s press-coverage aptitudes.

3 – The relationship between speed and Ed Donatell’s defense.

4 – The daily video segment — Dustin Baker discusses Vikings history with first-year skippers.

5 – Smacking the “Cousins checkdown” narrative in the face.
