NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Tennessee Titans Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning!

That was a whirlwind of action this weekend wasn’t it? Besides the transitioning of Terence Newman and Brian Robison, no one I’ve heard thought Ryan Quigley was at risk for getting cut. Hope you’re having a great day if you’re off, or if you’re working like I am your commute was smooth since everyone else is off today. Six more days until Vikings football, while we’re waiting, we’ll continue with our Monday 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.
