Tuesday Open Thread: August 30, 2016

Man, August is almost over. Real football is right around the corner.

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Merry Tuesday, DN faithful! Well, it's been proposed that today be overreaction sign linemen day by freezeface and approved by enough that we say Hell yeah. So turn up the sarcasm detection a bit, not all posts are serious in nature, and should be read with caution, especially if those posts are regarding signing O linemen.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Ted posted the Stock Market Report from Sunday's game.

Ted also posted his Vikings 53 man roster projection.

Ted has all the latest cuts, as well as a report that the Vikings are shopping John Sullivan.

Vikings news from elsewhere:


Craig Peters posted his After Further Review segment, where he looks at the interceptions the Vikings came up with vs. the Chargers. He also has 3 stats that stood out.

The crew at NFLN break down Sunday's game.

KUSA in Denver is reporting that punter Britton Colquitt is on the trading block, and the Vikings are a team that has shown interest.

Around the NFL:

The Chargers have released veteran wide receiver James Jones, per

From, the Seahawks have released Brondon Browner.

Friggin' Twins:

Santiago finally had a decent outing, but the Twins forgot to score a run, and the Indians beat them in 10 innings, 0-1.

We come to today's media selection. Seems like an appropriate day for our old pal, the Reverand Horton Heat.

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 chitlins.
