    A despondent Purple Moses joins the show, shortly after his Twins were eliminated from the playoffs, to discuss what feels like 40 years of wandering in a desert of Minnesota sports relevance.

    bears, football, kings of the north, lions, nfc, nfc north, nfc north football, nfl, packers, vikings

    An air of civility permeates this podcast as Beefcake and Professor attempt to be nice to each other before the week 1 clash. Could it have anything to do with the unspecified legal trouble between them? Rhob has high hopes for his Lions and is announcing the beginning of a new business. Professor crowns Kirk Cousins a 'gunslinger'. Beefcake has Superbowl expectations. We also find Rodgers a new girlfriend, discuss 'sports movies', and mock the Bears for continuing to start Mr. Biscuit at quarterback.

    Editors Note: This episode was recorded before Danielle Hunter was sent to the Injured Reserve, which is why Professor isn't openly weeping throughout the entire episode

We break down the Vikings amazing draft, the Packers betrayal of Aaron Rodgers, and the joy of seeing Andy Reids house before things get really controversial with a Four Down Territory of our Favorite cookies!

    The only thing worse for Professor than a Vikings loss is an incredible Packers win, making this weekend the nightmare scenario.

    A few days ago in a stadium far far away.....

    It is a period of Wildcard war. Underdog Vikings, striking from all over the field, have won their second recent playoff victory against the evil New Orleans Saints.

    During the battle, Vikings defenders managed to steal the football from the Saints ultimate weapon, DREW BREES, a hall of fame quarterback piloting an offense with enough firepower to destroy an entire secondary.

    Pursued by the Saints sinister bounty program, Kirk Cousin threw deep passes all over the field, and came away the custodian of a playoff win that can save Vikings fans and restore peace and justice to the NFL.....

    The gang starts off by breaking down Vikings vs Packers. Beefcake gloats while Professor provides compelling, fact based evidence that Green Bay has benefited from officiating this year. After that the tension gets even higher as the gang discusses their favorite Star Wars movies In The Hunt, their favorite Christmas movies in Four Down Territory, and then previews all the week 17 matchups that will decide the fate of the playoffs!
