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 – Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell likens the offensive strategy to Steph Curry — and how he foresees Cousins emulating the approach.

2 – Dalvin Cook makes the cut for ESPN’s Top RB rankings.

3 – PPTSD explains why Harrison Smith’s NFL peers seem to doubt him.

4 – In the daily video segment, Dustin Baker explains the good stuff from the Mike Zimmer era that Kevin O’Connell can maintain — and the items needing improvement.

5 – Kyle Joudry breaks down the Vikings “secondary shepherds.”
