Purple FTW!

Free agency officially opens this afternoon at 4pm ET and the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings have been working fast and furiously to sign all of the high octane free..... Nah just kidding. General Manager Rick Spielman hasn't really done much (besides have lunch in Norman, Oklahoma), to the chagrin of Vikings fans. Today on the show, we run through the free agency headlines even though all the information will likely be dated by the time you listen. Fun times!

Today's Make It Rain Talkers Include:
Fans and Rick Spielman
Andrew Whitworth Going to LA
Matt Kalil Going to Carolina
So What Now on the Offensive Line in Free Agency?

Teddy Bridgewater vs Sam Bradford. National anthem protests. Solar eclipse fails. WHY Mitch Leidner? Free promotion for the Denver travel bureau. We welcomed in Zach Halverson (@ZachHalverson) of KFAN to discuss all of those topics and more in a fun and diverse discussion. Plus Zach talks about what it was like being on the job the day of the Teddy knee injury.

Rumors and scuttlebutt abound as speculation has emerged that Teddy Bridgewater may be physically ready to resume practicing earlier than initially believed. IF that happens and Teddy avoids the physically unable to perform list (and his contract tolling), it opens up a number of interesting scenarios for the 2017 season. To help sort through the conjecture, we brought in @JReidDraftScout (The Viking Age) for his weekly spot. Plus I have some choice words for the stupid solar eclipse and the debut of Tell The Truth Tuesday.

Minnesota Fightin' Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer suffered his 2nd career preseason defeat manning the helm of the Purple 20-13 at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks Friday night/Saturday morning.

We recap the highlights and the lowlights of the Vikes' second exhibition exhibit.

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings and the Seattle "Vikings West" Seahawks get it on late Friday night/early Saturday morning for preseason game numero dos. To shed some light on the opposition we brought in Danny Kelly (@DannyBKelly) of The Ringer to fill us in on the Seahawks equally bad offensive line, how the fanbase feels about Beastmode returning for another team, why they chose Austin Davis over Colin Kaepernick, and of course... Blair Walsh takes. Plus I wrap up the show with some Teddy social media speculation, highlight my favorite parts of Drew Magary's Why Your Team Sucks Vikings edition, and 5 players I'm looking forward to watching vs Seattle

We brought Myles Gorham (@MylesGorham85) of I Don't Hate Sam Bradford and the Climbing the Pocket Podcast into the Blue Door Pub to talk Minnesota Fightin' Vikings preseason, get his unique take on the wide receiver situation given that he played college wideout (not well against Winona State though for the record...), thoughts on how Teddy vs Sam will shake out, and what training camp was like as a Vikings PR intern. Plus a surprise cameo from Yinka Ayinde (@saxyprince) of The Daily Norseman as we talked offensive line, the joys/terribleness of #VikingsTwitter, and what it was like meeting legend Arif Hasan in person for the first time.

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings are trying not to repeat as 8-8 champs, dontcha know. That's why the concerns with the offensive line, stopping the run on defense, and their overall ability to put points on the board are still a concern even after one preseason game. To discuss the concerns and celebrate the bright spots so far is friend of the program Jordan Reid (@JReidDraftScout) of The Viking Age and the Climbing the Pocket Podcast. Also Uncle Nick sits in the first half of the show and clowns "preemptive Super Bowl celebratory song" with me. The Vikes have had two solid ones.
