10 more days 'til training camp......not that anyone's counting

Joey Browner

Merry Thorsday, fellow DNers!

We are about a week & a half away from training camp, football is almost here once again.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris is down to number 57 in Minnesota Vikings By The Numbers.

Chris also notified us that we missed the 2017 NFL Supplemental Draft.

Teddy Bridgewater's knee must be healing well, he wasn't wearing a brace during drills yesterday.

Luft Krigare has an analysis of our tight end position, and it has evolved over the years,. This is really good, well worth a read.

Vikings news from other sources:

In case you haven't seen it, here's the training camp schedule from Vikings.com.

At Vikings.com, Adam Thielen is going to keep doing what he's been doing, the Mike Zimmer Foundation awarded a pair of $10,000 academic scholarships.

ESPN has Pat Shurmur on their list of the next wave of NFL head coaches. If the offense really turns it on this year, I could see it. If the offense doesn't improve significantly, it won't happen. My opinion.

News from around the NFL:

DeAngelo Williams has some awesome quotes about Cowboys fans, from NFL.com. He also named four teams he wouldn't play for. This is pretty good stuff, I like this guy.

Whoa! Greg Jennings says Mike McCarthy is the 'problem' in Green Bay, from the Sporting News. I'm guessing Packers fans are bleating about his one.

We come to our media selection.

Hey, did you hear Kid Rock may be running for Senate?

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.
