It’s Game Day!

Good Morning!

I mentioned the other day in the mythical words up top may be truncated at times due to my new schedule, today is one of those days as I’m finishing this after midnight, again. I hope you’re weekend is going great with fun filled activities, work or whatever you want to do. While we’re waiting for the next Vikings game to start we’ll continue with our open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Have another cup of coffee and drop by for some fan wisdom and snark. With that, let’s do this.

Around the DN since our last thread:

Chris and Eric have a spot where you can keep up with all the Vikings-Eagles news.

From Chris the Minnesota Vikings activate Kentrell Brothers, release Bryan Witzmann
and two injury reports for both teams, first the Eagles injury report with Derek Barnett out for this game and for the Vikings CB Trae Waynes is out and RB Dalvin Cook will be a game-time decision.

Chris sat down with BGN and gave them three reasons the Vikings will lose Sunday and Brandon sat down the Daily Norseman gave three reasons the Eagles will lose Sunday.

Finally, a Fanpost from an Eagles fan: “Ask an Eagles Fan.”
It’s been civil there so I decided to put it up here in the mythical words™ again.

Vikings news from other sources:

From Vikings.com Head Coach Mike Zimmer joined Paul Allen on this week’s “Vikings GamePlan” to discuss the success of the passing attack through four games, the issues in the secondary and defending the pass and more.

From their notebook: Vikings focused on changing their fortunes in the turnover battle.

Head Coach Mike Zimmer addressed the media from the TCO Performance Center on Friday.

League news:

Consistent with the weekend thread I’ll post league news in the comments, will probably be delayed until later in the morning.

We come to today’s media selection: Guns N’ Roses - November Rain

Again, 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 the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-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 and tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, try the venison chili and as always, Welcome Aboard and Skol Vikings!
