Happy Thorsday, everyone!

Well, we’ve nearly made it through a nerve-wracking week. The thought of watching another Keenum lead “attack” isn’t high on my list of things I want to do. I’m hoping we see Sam out there on Sunday.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Arif posted Norse Code Podcast Episode 195: We’re All Day to Day.

Chris points out another one they get wrong about the Vikings.

Saxyprince posted Climbing the Pocket, Episode 36: Venn Diagram.

Jack Tocho was signed to the practice squad yesterday.

Chris posted the week 3 Minnesota Vikings Power Rankings Roundup.

Vikings news from other sources:

From Sports Illutrated, Sam Bradford says his knee injury is not from contact.

Over at, Pete Bercich breaks down some film of Tampa Bay’s playmakers, Tom Pelissoro talks about Bradford’s health, among other topics, and there is lots more in the media vault.

Around the rest of the NFL:

Eddie Lacy hasn’t had the greatest start in Seattle, as he was a healthy scratch against the 49ers, per

From the Sporting News, Marvin Lewis warned his players about their job security. He should worry about the security of his own job, I can’t imagine he’ll survive this year if they don’t turn it around soon.

We come to today’s media selection.

Here’s one more from the Gentle Giant, Don Williams, as I wind up Don Williams week.

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 liver and onions.
