Minnesota Vikings News And Links, 11/13

Cheerleader? Yeah, why not. . .cheerleader. - Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

It's the middle of the week in Minnesota Vikings country. . .and everywhere else, too, I guess. But Vikings Country is what counts, am I right?

Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .

-Wide receiver Jerome Simpson could be spending the next couple of seasons in the Kentucky Penal League.

-CCNorsemen takes a look at what the Vikings' playoff chances for this season realistically are. (SPOILER: Not good.)

-Arif has the latest installment of his Blind Power Rankings for everyone to check out.

From some other outposts around the internet. . .

-Ben Goessling of ESPN takes a look at how much better quarterback Christian Ponder is from the shotgun than he is from under center.

-Star safety Harrison Smith is optimistic about his chances of coming back this season.

-The naming rights to the team's new stadium could fetch $10 million a year. And, according to the video that goes with that story, Target might not be the front-runner at this point.

The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've ever, ladies and gentlemen. . .no politics, no religion, no feeding of the trolls, and keep the bad language to a minimum/use the spoiler tags if you feel that you absolutely must curse.

MOAR PEARL JAM as we move forward this week.


With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for Wednesday, folks! We'll have more for you as the day progresses.
