We're finally here! It's the first Purple Jesus Diaries Game Thread of the 2013 regular season, and we're not here to mess around. The Vikings are apparently ready to go for the game as well, as early reports are indicating that for the first game of the season, the Vikings are ready to bust out the purple pants. No pretense this year, apparently, just full blown in-your-face-ness.
This will be our first opportunity to see quarterback Christian Ponder play without any excuses this season. He'll have Adrian Peterson behind him for the whole game, and all of his offensive weapons out there ready to roll. So, IF he ends up performing poorly, let's just say accidentally he does, what can we blame that performance on then? The fact that it's on the road? Blame the purple pants? Ponder apologists better start coming up with their excuses now. As for us "haterz", we better just be ready to starting stuff crow down our gullets in case Ponder actually performs mediocre. I hope I get a plateful of it.
Regardless, enjoy the game people. Vikings football is back, and back for a long time now. Let's enjoy the season and wish for the best. Drop all your random game thoughts here.

Defense didn't look great either...
Well, there looks to be some good collage QBs out there. Is it time to 'tank' already?
God he licks so much nuts. If we had en even less than average QB instead of a totally incompetent one, we could be decent at least. I hate him so much.
I also feel bad for AP.
Purple pants suck!
Oh, here we go! Detroit marching down the field with big chunks! come on!
Oh - got so lucky
@Joey Browner's hands around Christian Ponder's nec Collage QBs? Like they're good at art projects? :-P
I would hate to bring a young QB in here and expect him to lead AD to a Super Bowl though. There has to be some veteran that is shuffling around that is world's better than Ponder but can be a stop gap while a young guy sits. I'm looking at you, Vince Young!
@Joey Browner's hands around Christian Ponder's nec Ponder is beyond atrocious (always knew it!)........... so, YES.
@CollegeWolf Too disgusted to comment right now ...... what did Adrian do to deserve this supporting cast?
@Joey Browner Hands Still don't feel THAT much better, but yelling at him does help.
@dwbandersen Purple pants = NEVER AGAIN.
@CollegeWolf You predicted it! Congrats!
@PJD Epic Sigh.
