Minnesota Vikings News and Links, January 6th

Trevor Ruszkowksi-USA TODAY Spor

Enjoy the first Monday of the New Year with fellow Vikings fans

Welcome to the first work/school day of the new year...at least for some of us.  If you're in the path of the Snowcoldapocalypse, you might have the day off.  Like me, for example.  Some news and notes since our last open thread:

The Packers and Eagles have been eliminated, making this an all NFC South/NFC West playoffs.  Read the account from Acme Packing Company here.  Gang Bleeding Green Nation offers their perspective here.

Uncle Sid states the obvious.

Former Vikings coach Leslie Frazier was officially named the defensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

One quarterback that might have been on the Vikings radar is going back to school.

For the musical selection today, we pay tribute to the Weathergeddon that's hitting the Midwest:


With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open.  Open thread rules remain the same: NO politics or religion, and if you gotta use the bad words, use the spoiler feature.

And stay warm.  Unless you live in Key West or someplace similar.  You wuss.
