Not a very heavy news day today

NFL: Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Merry Tuesday, everyone!

Alright, I think life has calmed a bit & the thread should be timely & consistent once again. It’s been a hectic week or two.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

The Vikings hired Kennedy Polamalu as their running backs coach.

Chris posted the 2017 Conference Championship schedule.

Vikings news from other sources:

Andrew Krammer at the Strib looks at how our linebackers graded in 2016.


Craig Peters looks at our plug-and-play offensive line from this past season.

Around the rest of the NFL:

From, the Jets have signed guard Brian Winters to a four-year extension worth $8 million per year.

Chip Kelly has interviewed with the Jacksonville Jaguars for their offensive coordinator position, per ESPN.

We come to today’s media selection.

Man, I love me some Allman Brothers, here you go.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-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 get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-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 blood sausage.
