Hump Daaaaayyyyyy!

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Merry Wednesday everyone. We've made it half-way through another week, and are just a few short days away from our match-up against the hated Packers. Might we see Bradford on Sunday?

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris has the Minnesota Vikings Power Rankings Roundup: Week 2.

Chris let us know that Eric Kendricks listens to his mother.

Ted posted Your Weekly Zim Tzu: Rocky Top This.

Ted and Di posted the latest Roughing the Podcast.

Wludford looks at whether Sam Bradford will be better as a Viking.

Vikings news from other sources:

FoxSports has the snap counts from the Titans game.

From ESPN, the Vikings' U.S. Bank Stadium party could have fewer green-and-gold crashers.


Here's the game preview for the Vikings-Packers game.

The Vikings signed Tre Roberson and Julian Wilson to the practice squad.

Wobby posted the pick 6 mailbag.

You can follow along with Adrian Peterson and his trainer through one of AD's workouts.

Around the NFL:

From, Jared Goff is shooting up the depth chart, and may be the Rams' backup QB this week.

The Saints released RB C.J.Spiller on Tuesday. They now have more than 25% of their salary cap dedicated to players who are no longer on the team, per ESPN. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Twins update:

Gibson had a really nice outing, and the Twins offense was rollin', as they defeated the Tigers 8-1.

We come to today's media selection. Here's a video of the history of the Minnesota Vikings. This is a pretty good video.

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 blood sausage.
