Thorsday Night Football Open Thread

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Good evening and Welcome Aboard!

Standard Disclaimer: I’m not a fan of the NFL having games on Thursday which results in a short week for both teams and in my opinion increases the likelihood of injury. It’s one of the things I think the players union should negotiate to get rid of with the next CBA. In any case I’m going to keep doing these on Monday and Thursday night as long as my new job allows and/or if it’s a common opponent for the Vikings. I haven’t posted one of these recently because the teams playing either haven’t been potential opponents for the Vikings or the games looked boring. Tonight with the Seahawks and Packers playing it just made sense if for no other reason to throw derision at these two fan bases. More importantly to me I’m starting Russell Wilson in fantasy (at your guys suggestion) so I have a lot at stake in this game. Stop by let’s make fun of the mistakes our potential opponents make on the field and maybe be entertained. With that, let’s be neutral....just kidding, I really need the fantasy football points after last week’s steamrolling by GA Skol.

Also, GIF’s are welcome in this game thread, however within the rules as usual.

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 & tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, try the venison chili and as always, Welcome Aboard and Skol Vikings!
