It’s Hump Day!

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning!

Words and thoughts up here will be limited so I can get this published, if I have time later I’ll add more links etc. I don’t like these Thursday night games by the way, the NFL needs to get rid of them. In the meantime, while we’re waiting for the next Vikings game to start we’ll continue with our 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 has a spot where you can keep up with all the latest Vikings-Rams news.

From Chris, Hannah Storm and Andrea Kremer will make history as they’ll be the first all female duo to call an NFL game. Congratulations to them.

The injury bug strikes both the Vikings and Rams as big names are likely to sit out for both teams.

Jonah has what you might have missed in Week 3 as we’ve apparently entered the upside down.

Chris relays the news (which he has updated several times) that DE Everson Griffen was involved in an incident at the Vikings hotel on Saturday. Whatever the issue is good luck to him and his family as he goes on a journey of healing.

Vikings news from other sources:

HC Mike Zimmer says the Vikings are in full support of Everson Griffen through “tough times.”

Fishin’ and I are still “displeased” with the effort on the field last Sunday, here’s a link to the Vikings homepage for media stuff.

League news:

The competition committee is uncomfortable with the roughing the passer calls, then why did you make a ridiculous rule?

Bucs HC Dirk Koetter knows which Bucs QB will start, won’t tell.

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer says there is a possibility Dalvin Cook will play against the Rams.

There’s more there, check it out for yourself.

We come to today’s media selection: Linkin Park-What I’ve Done

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.
