Purple Mafia Ep#254:Glass Ceiling

The Minnesota Vikings were the team to break through the pivotal “Glass Ceiling” on Sunday, as they were finally able to pull away from a very stingy LA Rams defense in the fourth quarter. The Vikings looked as if they were going to leave points on the field throughout the game, until a close call

Purple Mafia Ep#253:Capitalize

The Minnesota Vikings offence “Capitalized” in the nations capital. Case Keenum is trying to do the same, as in earning a significant pay increase for next season. Keenum, for about three quarters tore up the Redskins secondary, until he threw two pretty dumb INTs. Luckily after that, Case was able to settle down and finish

Purple Mafia Ep#252:A Little Dodgy

The Vikings win in London was a bit “Dodgy” as they say in the UK, but a win non-the-less. After three quarters of some poppycock football, the Vikings finally started to pull away in the fourth, after Stefon Diggs drew a pretty damaging pass interference call.

Purple Mafia Ep#251:Clutch And Grab

In a game in which the zebras swallowed their whistles, Adam Theilen had a lot to gripe about. Thankfully, the Vikings defense gave a struggling Joe Flacco almost nothing to work with what-so-ever, and the Purple would win comfortably, despite an off game by Case Keenum.

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. Aaron Rogers’ broken collar bone has made the NFC North up for grabs, and Detroit doesn’t seem ready to take

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#248:Classic Vikings

In a day that brought back memories of the “Black and Blue” division, with former Lions LB Chris Spielman color commentating the game, it was classic Vikings in too many ways. Missed tackles on 3rd and long early on, a missed FG within 40 yards, missing our QB with a non contact injury after an

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

Purple Mafia Ep#245:Tainted Saints

The Minnesota Vikings saw what they can be with a solid offensive line. Yes, the Saints defense leaves something to be desired, but Sam Bradford was downright fantastic. Dalvin Cook broke the century mark in his first NFL game, and showed signs of NFL stardom. Adrian Peterson was greeted with boos, a smothering Vikings front
