Divisional Round - Minnesota Vikings v San Francisco 49ers Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images

Good Morning!

Well that was not the score I was expecting. Since I was at work I followed mainly via Twitter and texts from friends. From what I heard the offensive game plan was.....offensive and the 49ers ran the ball 34 straight times or something like that. I’d expect at least some of the current starters to not be back next year as the team needs to get younger, particularly on defense and left guard, (see what I did there). By the way, if you came here to post the same repetitive crap of 0-60, 38-7 etc, don’t. It’s wearing on Brad’s and my nerves. 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 get more beer, the offseason has started earlier than I planned.

Around the DN since our last open thread:
