Purple Recap: A Season Turning Point, Some Offensive Optimism, and Everson’s New Groove

Folks who visit TVG regularly may have noticed some decline in the overall amount of content. The reason is because I took over as managing editor at Purple PTSD not too long ago. The demands of that position have taken away some of my ability to keep things going at the same pace. What I’m offering, then, is both an explanation and apology.

One idea I had was to do a semi-regular Purple Recap to highlight content from Purple PTSD for TVG‘s readers. Interested readers can hop over if they feel so inclined.

– Podcast fans might be interested in Bob Sansevere’s Purple Pulpit. These are weekly quick-hitters that cover pertinent topics relating to our Vikings.
– Everson spoke about getting back into his groove. It’s awesome seeing him back out there.
– Cousins has been deadly when targeting the short and intermediate areas of the field. He might be playing himself into another large extension.
– Josh makes the case for Mattison being more involved in the offense even if Cook is healthy.
– Somehow, Justin Jefferson is underrated.
– The upcoming Cleveland game is going to be a true test, perhaps even more than the Seahawks game.
– K.J. Osborn has really emerged as a legit WR3.
– It’s growing increasingly likely that we see Darrisaw on the field.
– The season may have been turned around with this critical 3rd down conversion.
– The defense still has room for improvement.
– Finally, what’s a Vikings site without at least a little free agent speculation.

Enjoy the reading, Vikings fans. There was plenty more great stuff, so be sure to swing by.
