Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Check out the story below that Chris linked, I think you’ll find it to be pretty impressive. PFR did a TON of work to go back and update the sack totals from before the NFL started compiling the stat, and the Vikings are all over the top 25, occupying nearly 25% of the list. 6 Vikings are in the top 25

There isn’t a whole lot else to talk about around the NFL. I couldn’t tell from the answers I got yesterday, but I think that dreadful tournament thingy from that game is still going on. You know, that game where people run around in a pasture, kick a ball around, and pretend to get knocked over? Some kind of county championship or something, it ends whenever the referee’s team gets ahead, it may take a long time. Rob texted me and said something about penalty kicks and Blair Walsh missing Italy wide left or something. I think he was thinking about Sicily, which looks like a boot. I don’t know for sure.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Here’s the story I referenced above, shared by Chris.

Other Vikings/NFL news and random oddities and annoyances:

That’s the spirit! Anthony Barr echoes a sentiment that I agree with, he says that the Vikings ‘have a Super Bowl winning team this year’, per NFL.com.

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. Welcome aboard! Belly up & tie one one, don’t forget to tip the cows, and try the head cheese.
