Merry Wednesday, everyone!

Hey Raiders, this one is broken, we need our money back. It always seemed odd to me that a professional athlete could fail a physical, then I realized it’s most likely due to an injury, and not because he couldn’t do 5 push ups or whatever they do. I just remember the “now cough” part when I got my high school physical.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Justin Jefferson and Brian Cole II were activated from the Covid-19 list, per Chris.

From Eric, P.J. Hall failed his physical, so the trade between the Vikings and Raiders has been voided.

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

From the USA Today, the Jets’ starting offensive line will have 100% turnover in 2020.

Over at, they rank the NFL’s 32 teams solely by the quarterback position.

Aaron Rodgers discusses his long-term future and whether it will be in Green Bay, from CBS Sports. I don’t know why everyone is convinced that Rodgers is going to be overtaken by Jordan Love. Shouldn’t we.....I don’t know......see the guy take a friggin snap in the NFL before we induct him into the Hall of Fame?

We come to today’s media selection:

Here’s a group at or near the top of the the all-time greatest. This is the Allman Brothers with Ramblin’ Man. Enjoy!

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Take the gender hatred elsewhere, it won’t be tolerated
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-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 wash your hands, touch each other’s faces often, and try the finger food
