Purple FTW!

Vikes Runner 2017 feat. Alex Gelhar, Josh Pelto & Darren Wolfson

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings look to make a statement and plant their flag firmly toward the front of the NFC North race as the Green Bay Packers timidly tip-toe into Historic US Bank Stadium on Sunday. To help us look ahead to the showdown, we brought in friend of the program Alex Gelhar (@AlexGelhar) of NFL.com Fantasy to give us the 411 on his Packers squadron. Plus Josh Pelto (@JoshPelto) swings by for another Vikes Over Beers as we plot how the Vikings can stay in the hunt until Teddy Bridgewater is ready to roll. And we close it out with Darren "Doogie" Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) with the latest Purple SCOOPS.


Past Episodes

Teddy Dave Bridgewater has been medically cleared to return to practice and will do so Wednesday as the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings prepare for the Baltimore Ravens. We Tell The Truth Tuesday and drop some honest bombs about Riley Reiff, Harrison Smith, and the aforementioned Numero Cinco. Plus Jordan Reid (@JReidDraftScout) stops by for his weekly spot to talk about his amazing Teddy piece, the upcoming Ravens, how the Green Bay Packers will fare without Aaron Rodgers, plus more.
The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings picked up a statement win Sunday at Historic US Bank Stadium 23-10 over the bitter rival Green Bay Packers. The game was essentially decided after Aaron Rodgers went down early in the game with a broken collarbone, but the Vikings are not the team to complain to about injuries to starting quarterbacks..... The NFC North is suddenly wide open. Like Laquon Treadwell was all day on Sunday.

It's happening. The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings welcome in the Green Bay Packers for the first of two Border Battles this season. Will the Zimmer Hellfire Defense be able to shut down Aaron Rodgers? Will the Vikings offense be able to put points on the board despite the myriad of injuries? All those questions will be answered on Sunday. To help us make an entertaining game even MORE entertaining, we welcomed in Joe Duffy (@OffshoreInsider) for his weekly spot to talk about the MIN (+3.5) line and other games he likes for Week 6. Later on Jordan Reid (@JReidDraftScout) of the Climbing the Pocket Podcast swings in to help forecast the upcoming tilt against the jabroni Packers.
Random controversy always seems to follow the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings as the Purple accidentally caused a civil war over "Duck-Duck-Grey Duck" and "Duck-Duck-Goose" as Kyle Rudolph and company's touchdown celebration further divided an already schism'd nation. To help heal said fracture and talk some Vikes, we brought in friend of the show Manny Hill (@MannyHill84). Manny and I talked about Sam Bradford's injury, life without Dalvin Cook, if it's Teddy Time soon, and looked ahead to the Green Bay Packers rolling into Historic US Bank Stadium. Later on I'm joined by Packers apologist Ivory Hecker (@IvoryHecker), formerly of KARE11, to talk about her new gig for FOX26 in Houston and even make a friendly wager on the game.
The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings gutted out a much need win Monday Night in Chicago 20-17, spoiling the rookie debut of the latest Bears savior Mitchell Jerome Trubisky. Starting quarterback Sam Bradford returned, was clearly not healthy or ready, but Case Keenum sprinted in from the bullpen and saved the day with some help from Jerick McKinnon, Adam Thielen, and of course the Zimmer Hellfire Defense.
Bear hunting season! To help us preview the Chicago Bears angle of the game, we brought in friend of the program Julie DiCaro (@JulieDiCaro) of 670 The Score to explain the hype around Mitchell Jerome Trubisky and how she thinks he'll fare in his NFL debut against the Zimmer Hellfire Defense. Plus @JReidDraftScout of Vikings Territory makes his weekly stop to discuss Sam Bradford gimpy knee, how the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings will try to replace Dalvin Cook, and an advanced scouting report on fellow North Carolina small school alum Tarik Cohen.
The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings resume practice today as they look to take care of business and secure an intra-division road win Monday Night versus the Chicago Bears. To get some betting insights on the game, we brought in our friend Joe Duffy (@OffshoreInsider) to handicap the game (both with or without Sam Bradford) and explain the gambling impact of losing a talent like Dalvin Cook. Later in the show, Vikes Over Beers is in full effect as Josh Pelto (@JoshPelto) and I sit down over a few of Minnesota's finest craft brews and complain about the Vikings (and the Twins).
The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings are in need of yet another offensive identity change with rookie phenom Dalvin Cook done for the season. Luckily native son and decent NFL wide receiver Michael Floyd is off suspension and free to fully rejoin the team. What does he bring to the table? I think Floyd could help shift the Vikings to a vertical passing-first offense by the end of the season. I'll explain my logic. Plus Darren Doogie Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) of The Scoop Podcast phones in for his weekly segment talking Dalvin Cook injury, Latavius Murray ankle, Sam Bradford's knee, and the latest on Teddy Bridgewater.
It's not time to panic, right? RIGHT?! Minnesota Fightin' Vikings fans should be used to non-contact left knee injuries to their star players. What's one more? To assess the carnage and look ahead to Chicago, we brought in BJ Reidell (@RobertReidell) of Vikings Territory and the About The Labor Podcast. We recapped the game, talked about the return of his boy Michael Floyd, and even did a guest round of Tell The Truth Tuesday.
The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings fumbled away a golden opportunity to make noise in the early NFC North race handing the Detroit Lions a 14-7 win Sunday at Historic US Bank Stadium. Despite a top-shelf game by the Zimmer Hellfire Defense, turnovers and inconsistent offensive play doomed the Vikings from kickoff. Plus the biggest loss is Dalvin Cook, potentially lost for the season with a knee injury (early reports say torn ACL). Let's recap the bleh day that was.

Today's Talkers Include:
* Turnovers. Turnovers. Turnovers.
* Dalvin Cook: Why can't We Have Nice Things?
* Summary Judgement on the Offense
* We Don't Deserve This Defense
* Told Y'all About Danielle Hunter
* Where's Kyle Rudolph?
* Stefon Diggs' Leadership
* Anthony Barr Appreciation Thread
* Odds 'N Ends
* On to Chicago

All that and more "More Turnovers Than the British Baking Show" chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
