Wednesday Open Thread: February 24, 2016

Hump Daaaayyyy! It's the peak of the week, folks. We're half way to another weekend of watching the underwear olympics, a.k.a. the NFL Combine.

'Round here since our last open thread:

CCNorseman compiled the consensus rankings for the Vikings in the upcoming draft.

It looks like the salary cap is set to go even higher, per Chris.

Arif told us that the Combine matters, especially to the Vikings.

Vikings news from elsewhere:


Who is the fastest and strongest? Current Vikings results from past Combines.

Harrison Smith was placed on the 'All-Underrated Team', deservedly so.

Mike Mayock looks ahead to Vikings later draft options.

Lindsey Young gives us 5 things to know about the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine.

Rick Spielman said that Teddy Bridgewater could let it loose more in 2016.

Around the NFL:

SB Nation looked at who the experts think each team will pick in the Draft.

Yahoo Sports reports that Vontaze Burfict has vowed to change his ways.

From, the NFL is reviewing a matter involving Jaguars DE, Dante Fowler in which he appears to watch two women fight. He eventually stepped in and broke up the skirmish. Maybe I'm missing something, but have we taken this a little too far when someone is under investigation for simply watching two other people fight? Are NFL players allowed to watch boxing or UFC?

Roddy White said 'it would be a tragedy if I had to leave' Atlanta.

With that, we come to today's media selection. Another selection for our theme of the week, Widespread Panic cover tunes. Here's an entire playlist of Panic cover tunes for ya', enjoy!

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

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