Tuesday Open Thread: January 7, 2020

Getting psyched for Saturday’s game yet?

NFL: NFC Wild Card-Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints Derick Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Merry Tuesday, everyone!

Hey, let’s start off by giving a warm welcome to the 49ers fans who stop by. The guys/gals who stopped by yesterday showed up with a sense of humor, and from what I saw, were all pretty cool, so let’s make sure to show a little class and treat them accordingly. Some fans get defensive a little too quickly, and then you come across looking like fans from one of those other fan bases, and the next thing you know, you’re eating horse poop or filing lawsuits over missed calls, and you don’t want that. Don’t become one of those people, we don’t have enough mouthwash on hand. Make sense? Good. Be cool to one another.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Ted stopped by and dropped off the Stock Market Report:Saints.

Chris tries to help us filter out the noise.

Ted is here to have a Ted Talk, Wildcard Round.

Luft Krigare posted Vikings vs. Saints - GMG In The Raw Wildcard Edition.

Eric highlights the five biggest plays from the Vikings vs. Saints wild card.

Other Vikings/NFL news, and random oddities and annoyances:

Over at, Baldy breaks down how Hunter and Griffen disrupted Brees and the Saints offense, Coach Zimmer talked with Deion Sanders, and there’s lots more to look through in the media vault.

Yahoo has a list of NFL prospects to watch in the FCS title game.

From FoxSports, the Rams have fired defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. I have to say, I think Phillips is likely the best defensive coordinator in football, this move was not a smart one, in my opinion.

We come to today’s media selection:

I couldn’t think of another San Francisco song, so here’s Tony Bennett. I dunno, I got nothin’............and I’m tired. Enjoy.......or don’t, your choice. SKOL!

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
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waiter, but try not to tip him over. Most of all, Welcome Aboard!
