Because of the immediate relevance of what's happening in the NFL, we start with an uncomfortable topic, though I don't think it's something we should shy away from discussing. From there, we talk the Rams game, then the upcoming Patriots game, including a Patriots fan as a guest.
Or, you can now listen to our LibSyn link here, which will be where our iTunes RSS feed points once Apple figures out our submission.
- The topic we discuss at the beginning rightly engenders strong feelings, but we point to the hypocrisy in a small part, and reference Di's excellent piece for a more thorough look at that hypocrisy.
- The National Domestic Violence Hotline needs more resources. Please donate.
- Here's an extraordinary video on the complicated issues surrounding domestic violence survivors and why they don't leave their significant others.
- Happier tidings, Lindsey Young at Vikings Territory published a story on being an NFL wife. Very upbeat.
- I previewed the Vikings-Patriots game with a 5000-word essay and a lot of GIFs.
- Speaking of previews, Adam Warwas at VT talked to another opponent to get the down and dirty
- Pressure packages will be an important part of the game. I took a look at the double A gap looks Zimmer has put together.
- If you want to look at the offensive side of things, I did an Xs and Os breakdown of the Cordarrelle Patterson run, too.
- If you really rather have a holistic retrospective, I have a game recap of the Vikings-Rams meetup
- If you want a backwards look, but at a forwards opponent, take a look at this history of the Vikings-Patriots matchups here at DN!
