    Episode 315: An Offensive Failure

    Episode 315: An Offensive Failure

    Arif and James are back and quite disappointed at how the season ended in San Francisco. We go over the few shining stars (Ameer Abdullah) of the game and get right into what happened on offense. Also - is this a mutiny or a jailbreak for the coaching staff now with Stefanski leaving? And then there's Arif's Dukes...

    Episode 314: Oh, hi Divisional Playoffs!

    Arif and James return to preview the Divisional round of the NFC Playoffs with Niners Nation's Kyle Posey. Who should scare the Vikings on San Francisco and how do they shut down Adam Thielen? We also review the other action from last weekend, speculate on Brady's best options, and debate the best lines from The Room. And where would Tommy Wiseau rank for QBs in the NFC North.  Arif also continues to tempt fate and cheer for his takes. All this and the rest of the mailbag on this episode of Norse Code!

    Norse Code is back for a mega episode to review the victory over the Saints! Arif and James break down nearly all aspects of the game including the redemptive arc of Adam Thielen, the scheme change that stifled Brees, and the final drive of regulation that was truly baffling from New Orleans.    Arif - @Arifhasannfl James - @bigmono  Please send any questions or feedback to  or tweet to @norsecodeDN.

    Episode 312: Hotseats and Playoff Preview with Seth Galina

    Norse Code is back and we are here to preview the Saints game with Seth Galina of the Canal Street Chronicles. How does one stop (slow down) Michael Thomas? Or Drew Brees? Or Teddy Bridgewater? And is Alvin Kamara any good this season?  Also we briefly go over the loss to the Bears and the game making (and game-breaking) plays of Mike Boone.    Seth - @sethgalina Arif - @Arifhasannfl James - @bigmono  Please send any questions or feedback to  or tweet to @norsecodeDN.

    A Very Very VERY Special Norse Code Christmas (2019)

    A Very Very VERY Special Norse Code Christmas (2019)

    It's time for the Norse Code tradition of missing the final preview recording of the year due to travel and Christmas responsibilities and instead listen to our "best" work of 2019. We have clips from Seattle, Arif's tips on cooking human, and scenes where we crack each other up. We also include our real-time reaction to awful NFL moments of the year, our general disdain for Thursday night games, and the epic minute Turkey rant! We'll be back next week to review the Bears game and preview the playoffs matchup!  Arif - @Arifhasannfl James - @bigmono  Please send any questions or feedback to  or tweet to @norsecodeDN.

The Cousins of Podcasts

A good meld of personality and business. Almost remarkable between the twenties. And, at times, personality leaks through the vents; but mostly, it’s CEO time, all the time. And if YOU LIKE THAT sort of thing, then this really will be THE NUMBER ONE PODCAST FOR YOUR MINNESOTA VIKINGS, for you.

Moreover:
Probably overpriced, esp considering that the pay is guaranteed. Still. Come for the purple rain, stay for James and Arif tossing their souls-vide livers upon the grills of the soul.

Good meld of fandom and analysis. Personality, at times, leaketh through. But mostly, it’s CEO time; all the time. James and Dusty and Arif tossing their sous-vide livers onto the grills of the soul.
And if you think that You Like That sort of thing, then this truly will be the #1 podcast for your Minnesota Vikings, for you.

Great podcast but...

James’ breathing is so annoying. Also, he has called Rodgers “Favre” multiple times
