In the season that just won't end we get more twists to the 2016 Vikings season. Phil Mackey sat out this Christmas Eve show so Doogie and Mike Morris took your calls on the 38-25 loss to the Packers.
There certainly was enough to talk about with TJ Clemmings, and well the rest of the team in general, having an awful day. Then news came out in the middle of the show that the DB's defied Zimmer. There were plenty of questions prior to that news about what has happened to the defense in the passed couple games. The guys discuss that and Thielen having a career day, while Everson Griffin remained undisciplined.

The Colts came into a frigid Minneapolis and stomped the Vikings into submission in a 34-6 beat-down.
No one person may have personified this loss more than Adrian Peterson. In what was supposed to be his triumphant return the former all-world back rushed the ball six times for 22 yards and a fumble. Besides Peterson the defense got shoved around all day by what was supposed to be a bad Colts offensive line.
Phil Mackey and Mike Morris took your calls about AP, the defense, and just about everthing else that went wrong in the debacle today. The guys also gave their most important thing they learned from today.

The Vikings had to rely on Kai Forbath making four field goals but came out of Jacksonville victorious.
Mike Morris and Phil Mackey answered plenty of your questions about the offensive lines troubles today. That poor offensive line play led to plenty of conversation about the Vikings being one of the worst short yardage teams in history.
The defense looked great against a terrible Jacksonville offense which sparked conversations about this team still being well coached despite the up and down season. There was also a comment about Zimmer being a fool for risking his eye just to coach a game.

The slump continues for the purple this week as they got dropped by the Cowboys 17-15 in Minneapolis on Thursday Night Football.
You, the listener, called in to discuss the terrible offensive line, special teams, and refs with Mike Morris and Phil Mackey. Kyle Rudolph's brick hands and cement feet were topics on the show, along with Charles Johnson's inability to make crucial catches. False starts at home and an uncalled hit to Sam Bradford's head were also heavily discussed.
Despite all the negative there was the positive that the defense returned to their early season ways, which garnered plenty of praise. Overall, though, the tone of the show was disappointment in the direction a once promising season has gone.
