Happy Wednesday, everyone! It's the peak of the week, I can almost see the weekend.

Per Football Outsiders, Teddy Bridgewater was the NFL's third most accurate passer.

Eric has Training Camp evaluations for the offense and special teams.

I reminded you of the Epic DN Photos of Fans Jersey Contest. Get your pictures submitted!

The Vikings' year in Mankato ended with a fight, per Chris. It seems the fight is between Brandon Fusco and Linval Joseph. I think I know who I'd put my money on.

Terence Newman will not be travelling with the team to Cincinnati. Chris has the details.

The Daily Norseman is on SB Nation Radio.

Ted and Di want you to ask Roughing The Podcast! almost anything.

Vikings news from other sources:

Fox Sports says Mike Zimmer appears satisfied with the Vikings' progress heading into the preseason opener. They don't know Mike Zimmer very well, apparently.

The Strib thinks the spotlight could be on Jerick McKinnon vs. the Bengals.


marine veteran cherishes a special souvenir he got from Adrian Peterson.

Norv Turner says teh Vikings are not going to Cinci to have a WWF situation.

McKinnon has added weight and reps for his third year.

Charles Johnson sees familiar schemes in the Cinci defense.

Here is a game preview of the Vikings at the Bengals.

Here are 16 takeaways from 2016 Vikings Training Camp.

Around the rest of the league:

Yahoo Sports says that Josh Norman has created his first Redskins controversy.

There really isn't much worthwhile news to share. If you see something I missed, let me know & I'll add it.

Twins update:

The Twins weren't able to close it out last night, and the Astros came back to beat them, 5-7. The Twins' power showed up, but their new pitcher was roughed up a bit in his first outing for them.

We come to today's media selection. Oofda22 shared this yesterday. This is.......different.

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 on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the liver.
