Tuesday Open Thread: September 27, 2016

6 days and counting until our Monday night matchup with the Giants.

Merry Tuesday, everyone! Hey, since the debates were last night, I just want to give us all a friendly reminder to leave politics off of here. Everyone's been really good about that, so let's keep it up. It doesn't hurt to remind ourselves every now and then.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris looks at the Vikingsdefensive depth and how it lead to dominance.

Ted posted Your Weekly Moment of Zim Tzu: Sacks Panther. This one ought to be extra good.

Vikings news from other sources:

Our own peterplaysbass did a recap of the Vikings-Panthers game on youtube.

From ESPN, Adrian Peterson came out of surgery with a song in his heart. Pretty funny stuff, but I don't think AD has a career in singing when he's done playing ball.


Eric Smith takes an early look at the Vikings vs. Giants.

Lindsey Young sees how the Vikings created a momentum shift and capitalized on it in Carolina.

Craig Peters looks at the Vikings' third down pressure in his After Further Review segment.

According to Coach Zimmer, Alex Boone should be okay to play Monday.

The Minnesota National Guard celebrated the Vikings victory from Croatia. If any of you are reading this, thank you for your service!

The NFL Network looks at Zimmer's role in the Vikings' success.

Coach Zimmer addressed the media yesterday. He said "our success is about the players, not me".

Around the rest of the NFL:

I love watching the Saints suck. Here's a recap of last night's whoopin'.

Anthony Davis has retired from football.......again, per

It's really sad that he has to say this after week three, but Hue Jackson said the Browns are not tanking to get the first pick. He actually had to address that question. Poor Browns.

We come to today's media selection. A comment got me watching Dave Chappelle yesterday, here's Dave on the Tonight Show. This is hilarious.

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 hakarl (thanks, kauabunga!).
