Minnesota Vikings News And Links, 10/24

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

We've got a football game tonight, ladies and gentlemen, with the Carolina Panthers hoping to keep the Tampa Bay Buccaneers winless, as well as hoping not to contract an awful disease.

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

-It was all about the quarterbacks here yesterday, as Ted broke the news that Josh Freeman suffered a concussion against the Giants on Monday and the team will likely start Christian Ponder at quarterback.

-We took a look back at everything concerning the team's situation behind center thus far this calendar year.

-And Ted wonders. . .as we all do. . .where this team goes from here.

From some other sources around the internet. . .

-The Viking Age takes a look at some of the woes of the offensive line.

-To borrow from a popular internet meme. . .can't tell if Jeff George. . .or Jeff Garcia.

-It appears that there is "no timetable" on safety Harrison Smith's foot injury.

The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've ever been, 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 as though you absolutely must curse.

We have another movie clip for you for our video today, this one from one of the truly underrated comic classics of the late 80s, UHF.

Seriously, if you've never seen UHF, you owe it to yourself to track it down somewhere.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Thursday, ladies and gentlemen. We hope you have a great rest of your day, and we'll be back with more. . .including Eric's picks for this week's action. . .as the day goes along.
