Good Morning, It’s Thorsday!

No good news coming from the Vikings today with multiple CB’s either on Covid IR or DNP four days before the second divisional game with the Packers. I’m back on service for the next seven days, I’ll check in here when I have the time from work. Please keep Gone Fishin’ and his family in your thoughts. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s Thorsday - I was informed this is cultural appropriation, but I’m not smart and still don’t know what that means.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Vikings news from other sources:

From Vikings.com: The Voyage | Episode 04 | Season 2. The Vikings continued to make strides on both sides of the ball during a heartbreaking loss to the Seahawks in Week 5, but then all of that seemingly came undone for a week during the home loss to the Falcons. Despite the ups and downs, star wideouts Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson continue to make plays and are amongst the best at what they do in the NFL.

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 wash your hands, wear a mask and Welcome Aboard!

Topic of the Day: Is there any veteran player available via FA the Vikings should sign this year or should they stand fast with their current roster?
