Thorsday Open Thread: 8 Feb 2018

Detroit Lions v Minnesota Vikings

Happy Thorsday, everyone!

Hey, this little fella turns 3 today (the child, not the snowman)

Around the DN since our last open thread:

The Vikings have officially requested to interview John DeFilippo, per Chris.

Chris has a list of all the important dates for the 2018 NFL off season.

Vikings news from other sources and news from around the league:

According to the Strib, the Vikes will interview DeFilippo on Thursday (next Thursday, I assume).

1500ESPN looks at the D line in part 6 of ‘The Future of the Vikings’.

Over at, get a video tour of TCO Performance Center, which is only weeks away from opening, hear Wobby’s interview with Case Keenum, and there is lots more to sift through in the media vault.

Art Rooney II said that the team wants to get LeVeon Bell signed to a long-term deal, per

We come to today’s media selection.

It’s been one of those weeks, a little Metallica sounds good for breakfast today.

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 tiger meat.
