    Vikings Territory Breakdown: Vikings Feast on the Pats

    Vikings Territory Breakdown: Vikings Feast on the Pats

    We all knew the Vikings would play better against the New England Patriots on Thanksgiving Night than they did against the Dallas Cowboys four days prior. They couldn’t have played worse. We feared they might only just compete and then finally lose a close, one-score game to an inferior team. They were due for that. We hoped for another last-minute Purple victory and didn’t care how we got it. In the end, the Vikings made another dramatic, fourth-quarter comeback, requiring all facets of their team to chip in to secure it. And we got it with an exciting 33-26 win.

    Of course, this all must be discussed. Mark Craig from the Star Tribune joins Joe Oberle from vikingsterritory.com and purplePTSD.com to do jus that on the Vikings Territory Breakdown podcast. Who are these Vikings? They seem to exist on the edge of resilience in close games and egg-laying in the face of equal or better opponents. They benefit from good luck while having some bad calls go against them. They play great at times in ways that give their fan base hope and then flop so epically that the ghosts of failures past rise up like zombies through the turf. We will discuss it all and preview what’s next, as the New York Jets fly into town in a week. Tune in and check it out.

    Vikings Territory: The Cardiac Vikes are 8-1

    Vikings Territory: The Cardiac Vikes are 8-1

    Insanity. The Vikings beat the Bills 33-30 in Buffalo. That statement alone strains credulity. But the way it happened was otherworldly insane.

    Vikings Territory Breakdown: Vikes Take Command of the NFC in Washington

    Vikings Territory Breakdown: Vikes Take Command of the NFC in Washington

    The Vikings are 7-1 and tied for the second-best record in the league. Let me say again . . . the Vikings are . . . oh, never mind, just read it again. It’s not a misprint. With a 20-17 win over the Commanders in Washington, the Vikings are on a 6-game streak and they’ve all been one-score games. Last year they lost eight of those games. This is quite amazing to all those Purple fans and observers, so let’s get used to it. We need to embrace these tight-knit, one score games, because they are very good at winning them, and who knows if they will abate anytime soon.

    Vikings Territory Breakdown: Vikings Lay Down the Cards and They Read 6-1

    The Minnesota Vikings are 6-1—how does that feel? Are you loving it yet or are oyu smiling with your favorite beverage held in the air and then heading to the fridge for one more glass of liquid courage because you still aren’t sure what to make of it? Yeah, probably the latter. We all know what it’s like to be a Vikings fan—to have our preseason holes realized, our expectations given to rise and then our dreams dashed on the jagged shoreline of some foreign country called a championship. That’s okay. It’s part of the deal. But that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it along the way.

    Vikings Territory Breakdown: (Almost) A Dream Bye Week for the Vikes

    If there is a dream scenario for a bye-week team it is to have your squad get some well-earned downtime, stay out of trouble off the field and have your rival teams lose ground. Well, the Vikings almost had the triumvirate last week.

Two Guys Who Ooze True Purple

I've been listening to Joe Johnson and Joe Oberle for several years--hence the name "Morning Joes--and they always have a unique and dare I say, oddly refreshing take on the machinations of the Minnesota Vikings. The two gents, a pair of unmatched socks, have a charming synergy, which is fueled by the neurosis of Joe Johnson, a younger man than the other. Joe the Younger articulates what many fans feel about the never-ending struggle of the Vikings to win a Super Bowl, a state-of-mind that no Vikings executive, coach, player or fan has ever experienced. We're talking nearly six decades of frustration, folks. The two men work together on a part-time basis--Joe the Younger has an indirect financial stake in the Vikings success as owner of a pair of Vikings websites while Joe the Older edits one of them. The latent panic of Joe the Younger when the Vikings lose or do something completely off the rails is amusing to hear. The soothing strokes of Joe the Older trying to bring some perspecitive to Joe the Younger gives the show a brotherly feel. Joe Johnson's written articles (and verbal opinions) are often train-of-thought screeds that are so creative and funny that one feels s/he is reading the reincarnation of Hunter Thompson, minus the drugs. Joe the Older often acts as the Crisis Cop with the blowhorn, talking Joe the Younger off the ledge. I highly recommend this podcast, and visits to Vikings Territory and PurplePTSD websites, for creative and often humorus analysis of all things Minnesota Vikings.

sorry, i wanted this to be good

didn’t seek out a podcast to knock it, but these guys think the NFL is stuck in 1980 and hasn’t been evolving at an increasingly fast pace over the last 30 years. very poor understanding of positional value or how to generate wins in the modern NFL. altogether, it’s just poor commentary deliver and poorer analysis from the host. just not good :(

Best Vikings Pod

I’ve been listening to this show for years now and always look forward to the new episodes! It’s not as stats-y (and condescending) as other shows, but you can tell that these guys know their stuff and have a good time chatting with each other. Definite recommend as an add to your Podcast queue!
