We kickoff the final week of the preseason!

Merry Monday, everyone!

Hey, sorry about the late update, had a bit of a miscommunication on my part and a major fecal storm here, so I'm just getting a free minute to add some links. Anyone want to go to Sickey's for lunch?

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Teddy Bridgewater's Instagram is getting weird, per Chris.

We're climbing to zero, here's #12 in Minnesota Vikings by the Numbers, also number 11, and we are finished with the double digits as we get to #10.

Saxyprince posted Climbing the Pocket: Episode 31 [Setting the Edge].

Skelly10 shared Coach Zimmer's statement that it's a possibility that Teddy Bridgewater could return this year.

Chris has your post-game wrap-up.

Wludford has some game notes.

Vikings news from other sources:

Here's a link to the media vault at, there are a whole lot of videos to watch.

News from around the rest of the NFL:

Bengals' linebacker, and all-around dirty POS, Vontaze Burfict is facing a 5-game suspension from the NFL for (yet another) dirty hit, per If you ask me, they should just do the right thing and boot Burfict and Gregggggggggggggg Williams out of the NFL permanantly.

We come to our media selection.

I haven't gotten a chance to watch the game yet, but I do know the outcome. An ugly win is still a win, so strike up the band!

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 knoephla soup.
