Merry Tuesday, fellow Vikings fans!
It’s another beautiful day here in the balmy upper midwest, at least we can enjoy the outdoors to get through the NFL off-season. Imagine how crappy it would be if it was cold & miserable out while we had to wait.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Chris posted Minnesota Vikings by the Numbers #73.
Ted looks at the possibility of Bradford’s agent seeking $20+ million/year for Sam in his next contract. I’d imagine he will, especially if he has another good year. Mike friggin’ Glennon got $16 million from the Bears.
Vikings Assistant GM George Paton declined an interview with the Chiefs for their GM job, per Chris. I guess he wants to hang out in Minny for one more year & tag along for their Super Bowl season before becoming a full GM, can’t blame him.
The Vikings issued a statement on the Floyd ruling, a fanshot by Chris.
Vikings news from other sources:
From Vikings.com, Wobby opened the Monday Morning Mailbag, Robison says he’s not taking anything for granted, the Vikings’ alumni came together for their annual golf outing, and Everson Griffen is focusing on mental sharpness for 2017. Here’s a video of Latavius Murray on the Good Morning Football program, and another video of the best catches of the offseason program.
Around the rest of the NFL:
NFL.com, in true sports journalism fashion, found a caucasian wide receiver and immediately compared him to Wes Welker. I didn’t see any commen
Fox Sports has a WHOLE LOT of stories about Vince Young, here’s their home page.
We come to our media selection.
Thanks to oofda22 for the suggestion today, in honor of the lights-out defense we’re going to have this year.
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 vulgar language to a minimum, using spoiler tags if you must
-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 pickled pigs feet.
