[Note: Episode recorded before Marshawn Lynch was officially ruled out]
Merry Vikings Wild Card Eve, Vikings Fans! The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings are set to play the Seattle Seahawks tomorrow afternoon at The Bank (aka Hoth) kicking off what we hope to be an extended run in the playoffs for this young team. To get the other perspective of the game, we welcome back show favorite Dayna O’Gorman (@DaynaOG) of the NFL Female Podcast to chat about the ‘Birds and the Vikes.
Today’s topics include why the 38-7 beatdown a few weeks ago might not have been indicative of where these two teams are, how Russell Wilson has become the face of that franchise and how Teddy Bridgewater could/should/will become the face of ours, what Marshawn Lynch returning might mean for the game, why the Pro Bowl is stupid (until it’s not), how this clash of two great defenses might shake out, and how playing in a commercial freezer will have an effect on the matchup.
All this and other “This is a Bud Grant Game” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
