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.
The Vikings started out 1-3 and are predicted to win against the Lions. Would a win over the Lions and the Panthers change your outlook on the season.
This poll is closed
Even if they win the next two that’s only .500 and there are harder games left on the schedule.
Time to clean house during the bye week.
