I’ve been absent from the thread since the Packers
mess game as I tend to avoid the Open Thread News and Links once the meltdown starts and I unexpectedly got called into work a day early. Thank you for posting my usual Wednesday gif (I don’t remember who) and I’ll be back more in the next couple of days. I’ve seen articles and mentions of a potential trade for Jalen Ramsey, what everyone is forgetting is an older QB who is no longer the QB1 for his team is available.....of course I’m talking about Eli Manning, let’s make this happen Vikings! Meanwhile, let’s carry on with our news and links open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and go ahead and leave work early, it’s Friday.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-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 waiter, have some chill and Welcome Aboard!
What say you regarding the potential trade for Jalen Ramsey?

I’m not done complaining about the Packers game.
The Vikings traded away a 1st round pick a few years ago for a player, see how that turned out?
He’s a very good player, the Jags are going to want to much in return.
Trade Rhodes or Waynes, make it happen. Ramsey is one of the best CB’s in the league.
Something else, put your answer in the comments.
