Found November 27, 2012 on Purple Jesus Diaries:
Amazing or macabre? YOU DECIDE! This is Minnesota Vikings linebacker Audie Cole getting into the holiday spirit a bit earlier than usual this season. That's him rocking an outstanding Christmas sweater vest, going beyond just the normal "Ugly Christmas Sweater" mode and going full blown with the vest and everything. And ONLY the vest. Doing so pushes this dangerously close into the "Shirtless Vikings" category, although I'm hesitant to drop any picture where a Vikings player is simply showing their arms into that gallery. It'd be a bit of a tease, I feel.   Either way, Cole Train is looking pretty solid, and clearly his girlfriend Michelle Rosplock (who is a very kind young lady, by the way. Hi Michelle!) is pretty excited to see Audie show off as he's doing. Or maybe she's just excited for a Audie Present herself?! Maybe Head Coach Leslie Frazier will even surprise us all with an early Christmas present this weekend and let Audie Cole actually play against the Packers and wreck havoc all over that stupid Aaron Rodgers face. Pretty much that's all Audie does when he gets into a game, just goes Full Audie Diesel mode. Just not in a Christmas vest, probably.   [follow]

2012 Minnesota Vikings: ‘They are who we thought they were’

 It’s not often that a team with a winning record is deemed to be dead in the water, but it sure feels that way for the Minnesota Vikings after last week’s dismal performance against the red-hot Chicago Bears. Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall shredded the Vikings defense while Christian Ponder and the Vikings offense fell completely flat in an important NFC North game. Even with...

Peterson, others added to growing injury list

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings are in the most important stretch of their season and are now dealing with several injuries that could linger into the week. Minnesota coach Leslie Frazier said Monday that running back Adrian Peterson, who leads the league with 1,236 rushing yards, suffered a shoulder strain in Sunday's game. Meanwhile, tight end Kyle Rudolph and rookie...

Vikings get key players back at practice

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Two days ago, Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier didn't have much good news to share when it comes to injuries to several key players. Two days later, Frazier approached the podium for his Wednesday press conference with a bit more optimism. Frazier started his press conference by saying Minnesota should have everyone available for Wednesday'...

Vikings receivers must return to fundamentals

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Receiver Jerome Simpson had his man beat to the inside on a simple slant route and quarterback Christian Ponder put the ball on target for what should have been a first down and a potential momentum-advancing play early in the Minnesota Vikings' 28-10 loss on Sunday. Less than three minutes had gone by on the game clock and Minnesota had gained the advantage...

Impossible to tackle? Peterson sure hopes so

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Adrian Peterson has fielded thousands of questions from the media in his six NFL seasons, but on Wednesday, the Vikings star running back was asked one he's never heard before: "How would you try to tackle Adrian Peterson?" When the question came up in his conference call with Wisconsin media four days before a NFC North divisional showdown with...

Reports: Vikings' Allen fined $21,000 for hit

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen was fined $21,000 by the NFL for his hit on Chicago Bears guard Lance Louis, multiple media outlets reported Wednesday. As a result of Allen's blindside hit on Sunday, Louis tore his anterior-cruciate ligament and was placed on injured reserve Monday. The hit occurred after Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield intercepted a pass...

I was wrong about the Vikings

I admit it. It’s important to admit fault when you are wrong. I had the Vikings winning only 2 more games back when they were 3-1, but it turned out the Detroit Lions are in the midst of a catastrophic, ball-kicking season, so the Vikings were able to sweep the season series. What I have noticed, thought, is a turn in the overall mood of the Vikings fan base. So now, Vikings fans...

Vikings DE Jared Allen destroys Bears G Lance Louis (GIF)

These are the types of hits that the NFL is trying to get removed from the game.  Louis had no idea that Allen was there and Allen launched himself at Louis, trying to blow him up.  Leaving his feet for this block is not only unnecessary but extremely dirty.  Had Allen not left his feet, I would be okay with this hit, but the fact that he targets Louis’ head is a huge problem...

Vikings know importance of Sunday's contest

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Off of last week's disappointing loss at Chicago, Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier polled his team whether any motivational speeches need to be delivered prior to Sunday's game at Green Bay. Minnesota still has playoff hopes, and possibilities, but time is running short for the Vikings to make their run. Frazier's players didn't need any...

Vikings dropped the ball (often) vs. Bears

Leslie Frazier was critical of the Vikings’ numerous dropped passes Sunday, saying it would be an emphasis in this week’s preparation for the Green Bay Packers.

Run 'D' Hobbled at Wrong Time

C.J. Wilson and Clay Matthews are unlikely to play with Adrian Peterson and the Vikings coming to town.
