The Wobcast is all new and is set to preview the 2017 season plus help commemorate the great Randy Moss as he becomes the 22nd member of the Vikings Ring of Honor. But before all of that, we must first say goodbye to a Wobcast regular.
Here are some highlights from this week's Wobcast…
00:00: Producer Nate Vaughn exits
After over two years guiding the Wobcast as producer, Nate Vaugh is graduating to other projects and leaves the show in the capable hands of Chris Corso. We say goodbye to Nate, find out what's next for him, and say hello to Corso.
04:25: 53-man roster thoughts
Biggest surprises, biggest strengths and Mike Zimmer's thoughts on the offensive line…we break down the Vikings 53-man roster heading into Week 1. We also hear from Tashawn Bower and discuss what the addition of Tramaine Brock means.
13:20: Schedule layout
The Vikings play each team in their division twice, plus they have one game against each team in the NFC South and the AFC North. Team reporter Eric Smith joins and points out the Vikings have back-to-back road games against the past two defending NFC champions – Atlanta and Carolina – and says the Vikings mettle will be tested.
18:34: One big thing on defense, offense and special teams
Corso points out the Vikings face a gauntlet of quality QBs this season, we all debate the big thing on offense and we talk about the newness on special teams, including plenty of positive talk about another undrafted free agent.
26:45: Saints Storylines
We check in on Bucky Brooks and Daniel Jeremiah on the Move the Sticks podcast, explain how the game doesn't hinge on Adrian Peterson's performance and talk about an underrated matchup in Monday night's game featuring Trae Waynes and a Saints wide receiver note named Michael Thomas.
Total touchdowns in the game, Dalvin Cook's rushing yards and Randy Moss' "Skol" mentions are the subject of this week's Over/Under segment.

We close the show by explaining the long form project Smitty has completed on Moss, then the show concludes with sound from the man himself – Randy Moss.
