Tuesday Open Thread: October 25, 2016

Another day away from the game we'd like to forget.

Merry Tuesday, DN faithful! It's going to be a long wait until Monday, isn't it?

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris posted your annual "Let's not lose our minds" post. Sound advice.

Ted let us know that the Calvary isn't on the way.

Chris also shared a book by Mark Craig called "100 Things Vikings Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die".

Ted warned us to be careful what we wish for.

Ted and Di want you to Ask Roughing the Podcast.

Vikings news from elsewhere:

ESPN says mental mistakes are at the heart of the Vikings' uncharacteristic performance in Philadelphia.


Craig Peters posted his After Further Review segment. He also looked at three stats that stood out.

Coach Zimmer addressed the media yesterday.

Randy Moss says Zimmer is looking to fix protection issues.

Around the NFL:

From ESPN, the Jets return to Ryan Fitzpatrick (do you know he went to Harvard?) after Geno Smith tore his ACL.

ESPN says Brock Osweiler should have never left the Broncos.

The Texans' Derek Newton tore both patellar tendons, per

Arian Foster announced his NFL retirement.

We come to today's media selection. If you haven't seen this yet, it's pretty good.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags 
-No pictures that could potentially get someone fired or in serious trouble at their place of employment
-If you can't disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it's sarcasm
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door

With that, the beer light is down and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the Drano.
