Merry Tuesday, everyone!

The dreaded Tuesday is upon us, let’s hope it passes quickly. Not a lot of news for us, and that’s probably good. The only news we usually get this time of year is if someone gets injured or arrested. We need none of that.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Warren Moon shared some thoughts about the Vikings QB situation with Chris Thomasson at the Pioneer Press, from Luft Krigare.

We are getting close to opening day, Chris is down to number 17 in Minnesota Vikings by the Numbers.

Wludford analyzed whether Alex Boone is the Vikings’ best left guard.

Vikings news from other sources:

Over at the Pioneer Press, they look at Ben Gedeon making a case to be Chad Greenway’s heir-apparent.

At, they have an early look at Sunday’s game against the 49ers. In the media vault, Pat Shurmur addressed the media yesterday, there are highlights from yesterday’s practice, and more.

Around the rest of the league:

CBS Sports has all the latest scores and injury updates from around the league.

La’Veon Bell’s holdout could be coming to an end soon, per

From the Sporting News. Eagles UDFA WR Bryce Treggs was fined for blocking too hard against Damarious Randall of the Packers. Hmmmm.....

We come to our media selection.

Here’s one of my favorite singers out there, I love his stuff. Chris Knight, enjoy.

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 chitlins.
