ALAFM: Hour 1 - A Decade of Rick Spielman + NAME THAT PLAYER!

The ALAFM gang is back to talk some Minnesota Vikings football and crack wise about how everything was better in the 90s.

Hour 1 topics include: Rick Spielman’s 10-year anniversary with the Vikes and how he’s fared throughout the decade (the Jared Allen trade was masterful), Jerick McKinnon and what his usage could/should be in 2016, and the ramifications of journeyman NT Bruce Gaston being added to the roster.

The guys also talk about the #MoreThanWords donation campaign Cold Omaha is engaged in, benefiting The Mike Zimmer Foundation.

Andy then closes it out by pitting Luke vs. Arif vs. Producer Zach in a round of NAME THAT PLAYER! (Vikings 90-Man Roster Edition.)

All that and more action on this edition of the Andy Luke & Arif Football Machine.

The Andy Luke & Arif Football Machine is a weekly conversation between two cerebral football minds…. and Andy Carlson. We’ll be bringing you an hour of Minnesota Vikings talk as well as an hour of general pro and college football chatter every week as part of the Cold Omaha Podcast Network. We talk NFL Draft, fantasy football, college football playoffs, and everything else that involves a pigskin and 4 downs. Arif Hasan breaks down the game through an analytic approach and has had his work featured in the Star Tribune, LA Times, Forbes, SB Nation, International Business Times, the Bleacher Report and MSNBC. He’s currently a staff writer for the Daily Norseman and Cold Omaha. Arif’s also made radio appearances on 1500 ESPN, KFAN and 105 The Ticket, and also stars on the Norse Code Podcast. Luke Inman is the resident NFL Draft guru and has been breaking down prospects and tape for eDraft and Cold Omaha. His Prospect a Day series on YouTube is the toast of #DraftTwitter. Andy Carlson hosts a lot of podcasts (Purple FTW! – Dedicated to the Pain AND Pleasure That Is The Minnesota Vikings) and tries to be funny. #DreamTeam
