Friday Open Thread: July 7, 2017

It’s finally Friday!

Robert Smith

Happy Friday everyone!

So, we made it through another week (well, 2 days for some of us) and we have a beautiful, hot & sunny weekend to look forward to. Anyone have plans or going to make anything extra yummy on the grill/smoker?

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Saxyprince dives into the wide receiver position on the depth chart.

Chris ponders on number 63 in Minnesota Vikings By The Numbers.

Vikings news from other sources:

From Lindsey Young at, here’s an outlook on the 2017 Vikings O-line.

Andrew Krammer at the Strib looks at the importance Linval Joseph has in the defense.

News from the rest of the NFL:

This is from last weekend, so maybe just_rob mentioned this, but I’ll re-post just in case. From PFT, here’s a little insight into Jeff Fisher and how he coaches.


Will Jeff Fisher get another NFL head coaching job?

We come to our media selection.

I like traditions, and this has kinda become my Friday tradition.

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.
