Weekend Open Thread February 17th and 18, 2018

NFL: Pro Bowl-NFC vs AFC Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning this weekend!

Thanks again for GA_Skol for starting us off last weekend with a Fanpost weekend thread. We’re going to continue these weekend threads at least during the offseason, once the season begins we’ll see. I hope everyone is having a great weekend wherever you are, I’m in the Everglades today waiting for my wife to run her 50k, in the meantime it’s an Open Thread. We can talk football, Olympics, the upcoming combine, the draft or whatever as long as it falls within the rules.

Around the DN since our last thread:

Chris lets us know the Vikings won’t use the franchise tag to solve their QB problems, just sign Teddy and lets move on!

Vikings news from other sources:

From Matthew Coller at 1500ESPN here are the Vikings five biggest needs this offseason.

Over at

Craig Peters has a position recap for special teams, nice question and answer with fans there also.

Staff writer Lindsey Young with the lunchbreak series, today is grading the 2017 receiving class.

Media selection: To get everyone’s blood pumping, the Minneapolis Miracle.

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!
