Minnesota Vikings podcast: Norv, Shurmur and one strange week

Sometimes you wonder if Winter Park is ever a normal place and then a week like this happens to make you think other weeks are normal. We discuss one strange week from an upset loss to an upset coordinator that resigns to the new one, and we welcome in a North Dakota guest.

Mike Zimmer and the Minnesota Vikings went through perhaps the strangest week in another weird season. Jim Souhan of the Star Tribune and Tim Yotter of Viking Update break it down with an “out-with-the-old, in-with-the-new” attitude.

  • Why did Norv Turner resign?
  • What do we think should change?
  • What will Pat Shurmur bring as Turner’s replacement?
  • Was Mike Zimmer’s fun, new attitude related?
  • Why was Zimmer calling himself out?
  • How much blame goes on Sam Bradford?
  • The O-line and what should scare you even more this week?
  • Why can’t Tim move around well enough to hit Jim with a Swiffer?
  • Why are we talking so much North Dakota and Jim Kleinsasser?

Plus, some of the regular segments:

  • Questions from fans:
  • Predictions are stupid: Tim waffles
  • What irritating us: On our own profession
