Another day closer to opening kickoff, but still soooooooo far away

Merry Tuesday, everyone!

This may be a bit brief, I’m in a bit of a time pinch. I’ll do my best to update ASAP, my apologies.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Check out Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft: Chris Mock Draft v1.0.

Chris shared the report that Jarius Wright is to sign with......well, of course it’s the Panthers.

Ted also gave us v1.0 of his Minnesota Vikings mock draft.

Ted shared a report that says the Vikings will be opening their season in......Philly. Don’t worry, Philadelphians, you won’t have any looting or vandalism. However, you may see a spontaneous potluck, and you’ll get LOTS of passive-aggressive comments.

Chris, Ted, and Eric are maintaining a tracker where you can keep up on all the latest Vikings free agency moves.

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

From the Strib, the newly acquired Trevor Siemian says that a lot of players would kill to be in his spot.

From, see a highlight reel of Harrison Smith’s top 10 plays from 2017, hear Nate Burleson on GMFB say that the Vikings offense will be even better in 2018 (I sure hope so), and there’s a couple more to sift through in the media vault. has Case Keenum and Jordy Nelson among the worst free agency deals signed in far.

We come to today’s media selection.

I don’t think I’ve ever played any John Denver for the media selection, and that ain’t right, so here you go. This song seems even more fitting in the past couple years.

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.
