Purple Mafia Ep#250:How Can It Be?

Despite being without our starting QB, our star RB Dalvin Cook, and even our top reciever Stephon Diggs, the Vikings find themselves 4-2 atop the division, despite hardly anything going right since the season opener.

Brave The Wild Ep#158:Battered And Broken

The season started out with Zach Parise out. Just one game in, Granlund would join him. Just two games later, Nino Niederreiter, Charlie Coyle, and Marcus Foligno would drop like flies in Chicago. Opportunity is knocking for a few minor league players and top prospect Luke Kunin, can they make the most of it? facebook.com/bravethewild

Purple Mafia Ep#249:In The Pinch

The Vikings were able to survive a very ugly game in Chicago, a place where they never win, regardless how much better or worse they are than the Bears. Sam Bradford appears done, yet it took Vikings coaches the whole first half to finally put him out of his misery. Case Keenum helped save the

Purple Mafia Ep#247:Coast Guard

Case Keenum is truly the “Coast Guard” as he has stopped the Buccaneers in all three times he’s started against Tampa Bay, much to our delight. Keenum was downright outstanding, showing his arm, accuracy, mobility, and best of all, showed he’s capable of winning a game in the pinch. Diggs and Thielen are not only

Purple Mafia Ep#246:Yellow Towels And Flags

What a Minnesota type of thing, Bradford looks great, the o-line finally looks strong, so here comes week two: Bradford isn’t available, and the o-line is the same old story. In a game filled with dumb penalties, ticky-tack calls, and a depressing offense, the Vikings came back to reality in Pittsburg this week. Also on
