Today is the day Marty McFly came to the future. So it makes sense that we go BACK to October 26, 1985 from Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings perspective and check in on the team with Bud Grant at the helm (2nd stint, final season), 494-Tommy Kramer under center, and a no-name defensive backs coach named Peter Carroll (Marc Trestman was there too, but who cares). October 26th was the day before the (4-3) Vikings went into Solider Field to take on the (7-0) future Super Bowl Champion Chicago Bears and that 46 Defense. Things did not go ideally.
Di Murphy of The Daily Norseman makes her weekly stop to talk about everything Minnesota Fightin’ Stefon Diggs Vikings related. We chat about the impact of the mercurial wideout and if he can sustain his initial success, how badly we want to get in on the Vikings Donut Club, why Harrison Smith is STILL somehow underrated, Di tees off on the NFL’s Pink Campaign as well as Greg Hardy, and if we’re scared about going into Detroit to take on the (1-5) Motor City Kitties on Sunday.
All that and other “Maple Long Johns FTW” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
An Andy Carlson Joint.
