Wednesday Open Thread: January 18, 2017

Hump Daaaaayyyyyyyy!

NFL: Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Merry Wednesday, everyone!

Alright, so I can’t figure out how to insert polls on this new format, so I’ll just ask you all what you think of the decision to re-hire Pat Shurmur as our offensive coordinator. Let us know in the comments.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Well, it’s that time of year. Not much new around these parts.

Vikings news from other sources:

Over at 1500 ESPN, they look at 10 free agent offensive linemen the Vikings should avoid.


Vikings returners were selected for PFWA teams.

Eric Smith gives Bradford high marks for his first year in purple.

On season rewind, Lindsey Young looks how the emergence of Hunter has bolstered our O line depth.

Around the rest of the NFL:

From ESPN, Jordy Nelson is the NFC North comeback player of the year.

From, Daniel Jeremiah has his top 50 prospects in the 2017 draft.

San Diego moving companies are refusing to help the Chargers move to L.A., per the Sporting News.

We come to today’s media selection.

Hey, here’s Todd Snider, he was introduced to us last year at some point. I can’t remember who suggested him, maybe southparkskolman? I don’t know for sure.

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.
