PJD’s Week 8 Recap: More Optimism Or Pessimism?

Ya see, on one hand, we won the game. But on the other hand? That was an AWFUL Tampa Bay team we almost lost to. In the end, the Minnesota Vikings pulled out a much needed win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, 19-13, thanks to a little extra overtime. It was the defense […]


On That Next Phase of the Percy Harvin Trade

Last Friday, Percy Harvin was traded. AGAIN. This time from the Seattle Seahawks to the New York Jets, and of course this is going to work out well for him, for sure. I mean, if you can’t get along with that pot smoking hippy Pete Carrol, then for sure you’re going to thrive with Geno […]


Vikings vs. Bills: Mushroom Stamp Winner

I’m blaming Chad Greenway for the loss to the Bills, but – as we mentioned yesterday – it literally could have been anyone and everyone on the team to take the blame this week. BUT NO. We choose Chad, and for multiple reasons. Hey, we get it. People like Chad Greenway, even though he’s a […]

PJD’s Week 7 Recap: A return to classic Vikings form

So that was a real crappy game. Who are you suppose to be mad at in a game like this? The Vikings did everything they could with a lot of limitations (namely: they ain’t that good) and were in a position to win this game. Frankly, they should have won this game. Several times over. […]

Acting Cordial: Talking Vikings vs. Bills with Buffalo Wins

Once again, in anticipation of a Vikings game that is likely to be underwhelming, Purple Jesus Diaries has pinged one of our Bloguin Bros to help us preview the upcoming game. This weekend, the purple head to Buffalo to face Antoine Winfield’s least favorite ex-girlfriend, and also a franchise just as morbid as the Vikings […]


Lions vs. Vikings: Mushroom Stamp Winner

The entire damn offensive line sucked monkey chestnuts, so they ALL get a stamp. But, specifically, Matt Kalil, if I have to call just one person out. The Vikings are facing a serious issue this year. It’s not that their young, unproven defense is getting torched. They are actually kind of stout. Surprisingly. It’s not […]

PJD’s Week 6 Recap: Collective Wet Farts

I don’t know about you, but that’s what that face says to me. On Sunday afternoon, under a lazy autumn sun on a lazy Sunday in Minnesota, the lazy Minnesota Vikings lazily jaunted through the motions of a fairly lazy football game, almost lulling the lazy Lions into lazy mistakes which could have let the […]

Purple Jesus Diaries Masturbatory Week 6 Preview: Back To Form

My god. Doesn’t it feel like the Vikings haven’t played football in like A WEEK(plusadayorso)??! Playing on Thursday night is just the worst. Not only are teams (like the Vikings) forced to start Christian Ponder and then get their ass exploded like a whale’s blowhole, but then the fans have to sit through what is […]

Vikings vs. Packers: List of Favorite Vikings

We’re officially into October, and I don’t hate everyone on the team yet! I will consider that a moral victory. Honestly, it’s hard to grade any of the Vikings after a debacle like we saw last Thursday night. Meaning, there really aren’t that many change ups in the rankings this week. However, it’s still important […]


Vikings vs. Packers: Mushroom Stamp Winner

Perhaps for the last time in his Vikings career, we gleefully smear a mushroom shaped poop stain all over Christian Ponder’s large, helmeted forehead, for nose diving the Minnesota Vikings in a game against the Packers. Listen, it’s easy to pile it on to Ponder. When he plays, it just seems obvious to try to […]

PJD’s Week 5 Recap: Packers Win on the Short Bus

By “short bus” I of course meant a “short week”, being that we played last Thursday, which already feels like a million years ago, and holy crap do Thursday night games suck. Listen. You could lie to yourself all you wanted to last week, thinking that maybe the Vikings were going to let Teddy Bridgewater […]


Acting Cordial: Talking Vikings vs. Packers with Total Packers

We brought in some huge Packer assholes once again to discuss tonight’s Vikings / Packers tilt for our game preview. The douche bag who runs “Total Packers” was kind enough to answer some of our questions and – surprise! – he’s a total shit head. Anyway, let’s hope for a win tonight to shut his […]

Where I Prep Teddy Bridgewater for a Packers Game

Hey Ted. Teddy. Can I call you Teddy? Cool. Hey, I know I’m probably the last guy you want to hear from right now. You’re probably busy running through some playbook scenarios in Madden 15 right now, tweaking the sliders on AI defense a bit, maybe even giving you a better “Awareness” rating, because shit […]
