Tuesday Open Thread: August 29, 2017

Join in the convo as we prepare for our Super Bowl run!

Tommy Kramer

Merry Tuesday, everyone!

Hey, it's the last week of preseason football, we'll have real football before we know it.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Ted posted the Stock Market Report for the 49ers game. I'm guessing you'll be selling short a lot on this one.

Chris recapped the 10s in Minnesota Vikings by the Numbers, and posted #9, where he looks at my first favorite Viking. I loved Tommy Kramer when I was a kiddo, he was on my first Vikings poster.

Vikings news from other sources:

From, Mike Zimmer addressed the media after Sunday's game, PA and Wobby join Ron Johnson as they preview the Vikings regular season, and lots of other video in the media vault.

News from around the rest of the NFL:

From the Washington Post, the Lions are set to make Matthew Stafford the highest payed player in NFL history.

I found this little January nugget from our friends at Pride of Detroit regarding Matthew Stafford's performance against winning teams. has all the latest scores from week 3 of the preseason.

We come to our media selection.

Fans' overreactions to preseason games amuse me, let's play one for 'em.

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.
