Purple FTW!

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings defended their home domicile Monday Night turning back the New Orleans Saints at the gates of Historic US Bank Stadium in a convincing 29-19 victory. Former Viking Legend Adrian Peterson was held in check, while rookie running back Dalvin Cook broke records. The Purple recovered from a listless and lethargic preseason to kick the 2017 campaign off with a statement win. 19-0 in my opinion.

Today's Talkers Include:
Slingin' Sam Bradford!
Dalvin Cook's Debut
Stefon Diggs Go BOOM!
The Offensive Line Was ________.
The Zimmer Hellfire Defense is Back
Welcome Back Anthony Barr
Trae Waynes Wasn't Terrible?
Adrian Peterson is Old and Bad
Is This Sustainable?
Odds and Ends

All that and more "Super Bowl, Homeboy" chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings are gearing up to try and prevent the 2017 season from becoming clown shoes. I have some choice thoughts on the current quarterback situation (including if the Purple can make the playoffs with Keenum starting multiple games) and outline when the perfect time for Teddy Bridgewater to start if Sam Bradford is unable to. Plus the Happy Hour Half Hour (aka Vikes Over Beers) is back with Josh Pelto (@JoshPelto) and Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman) joining me at The Blue Door Pub to chat about the current 1-1 squad and how they can get it done Sunday versus Tampa Bay.
Light a candle for Sam Bradford's knee, Vikings fans. For today's show we busted out Tell The Truth and laid out five factual(ish) Minnesota Vikings talkers including the near future with Case Keenum, how we may see Danny Isidora sooner rather than later, and why Rick Spielman's job isn't as secure as you may think. Plus @JReidDraftScout (Vikings Territory) swings in for his weekly segment and we do a deep dive on the troubles with Trae Waynes and look ahead to the solid Tampa Bay Buccaneers team rolling into Historic US Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
What is it with Minnesota Fightin' Vikings quarterbacks and knees? For the latest on Sam Bradford's banged up left knee, we brought in the big guns with Darren "Doogie" Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) of KSTP Sports and The Scoop Podcast. Doogie and I chatted about the latest rumblings around Bradford's injury, how many games Case Keenum could start and the team still make the playoffs, iif the Vikings had inquired about other available quarterbacks, and how Teddy Bridgewater coming off the Physically Unable to Perform list plays a part in this 2017 Greek tragedy. Plus some Tramaine Brock, Michael Floyd, and Alex Boone tidbits.
The previously undefeated Minnesota Fightin' Vikings saw their winning-streak snapped in Pittsburgh by the Steelers 26-9 on Sunday afternoon. Case Keenum did his best Case Keenum impression in place of an injured Sam Bradford and the Vikes made too many mental errors and penalties to stay in the game in their first road test of the season. That sound you heard was fan expectations crashing back to Earth.

Today's Talking Points Include:
- The Case Keenum Effect
- Penalties Were Murder
- Defense Kept This a Game, But...
- Offensive Line Still Needs Work
- Stefon Diggs is a Leader
- Everson Griffen is a Man
- The Cornerback Discussion
- Special Teams Snaffus
- Odds and Ends
- Twitter Questions

With the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings prepared to descend upon the Steel City, we brought in Bleacher Report Steelers writer and friend of the program Andrea Hangst (@FBALL_Andrea) to discuss the upcoming Week 2 fracas on the banks of the Three Rivers. Plus Jordan Reid (@JReidDraftScout) of Vikings Territory swings by for his weekly appearance and drops some knowledge about how the Zimmer Hellfire Defense can put the brakes on the Steelers and the Triple B's.
The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings have their first big road test coming up Sunday as they make a pilgrimage to the Mighty City on the Three Rivers to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. To preview the opposition, we brought in Steel City apologist Jon Ledyard (@LedyardNFLDraft) of FanRag Sports and the Locked on Steelers Podcast. Jon and I discussed the key Black & Yellow (Black & Yellow, Black & Yellow) weapons the Vikings will need to dismantle to pick up a big statement win on the road. Later on in the show, the Happy Hour Half-Hour (aka Vikes Over Beers) is back with Josh Pelto (@JoshPelto) kibitzing about re-calibrating expectations for this year's Purple crop.
To help breakdown WHY the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings got off to a fast start on the 2017 campaign, we brought in Shawn Zobel (@ZobelSports) of 1500 ESPN's Football Headquarters Podcast. Shawn and I talked about if Sam Bradford's Week 1 play was legit or just a mirage, why Dalvin Cook is the real deal, how the offensive line improved from recent campaigns, what's possibly keeping Laquon Treadwell from being a contributor, Adrian Peterson being washed, and why the Zimmer Hellfire Defense is Super Bowl caliber.
The New Orleans Saints march into Historic US Bank Stadium on Monday Night to christen the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings 2017 campaign. We preview the game, they key player matchups we're looking forward to (Linval Joseph versus Max Unger is going to be HUGE), keys to a Vikings victory, and keys to a Vikings loss. Plus we wrap it up with Five Things Friday featuring Randy Moss memories and wondering if significant roster turnover is a good or bad thing for this 2017 squad.

With the New Orleans Saints rolling into Historic US Bank Stadium Monday Night to open the 2017 season, it's impossible not to revisit the 2009 NFC Championship Game and the hard feeling many of the Vikings faithful still harbor towards the Saints, the refs, and certain players on that Purple squad. But are those feelings justified? We explore in the first half of the show because I rewatched the entire game for the first time since seeing it live with me own two eyes on January 24, 2010. Plus for some levity, the debut of our new weekly segment The Happy Hour Half-Hour, with Josh Pelto (@JoshThePelto) and Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman) having a few beverages and discussing some of the latest Vikings headlines. Sports Over Beers, if you will.

Actual FOOTBALL football is upon us! As the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings prepare to take on the New Orleans Saints led by future Hall of Fame running back Mark Ingram, we're preparing for the season as well by jamming as much talk in as we can. To help us out, we welcomed in life-long Vikings fans Matt Helgeson (@MattHelgeson) and Logan Lafferty (@MrLeviathan) of the Strother Communications Group to hoist a couple of beers and enjoy some Blue Door deliciousness while talking Purple. We covered Adrian Peterson returning to Minnesota, why Alex Boone being kicked to the curb is no big thing, how Dalvin Cook could be the next big thing, and of course the mandatory Teddy vs Bradford talker.
