Tuesday Open Thread: August 17, 2021

5 more days to Indianapolis

NFL: Denver Broncos at Minnesota Vikings Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Merry Tuesday, everyone!

Another day removed from the Denver game, the team looks forward to its next matchup vs. the Colts. It’ll be interesting to see the Vikings’ approach to the Indy game. They definitely had a strategy in mind against Denver, giving some guys a chance to sink or swim. Some definitely sank, while some were able to swim. As of this writing, the team still has one more cut to make. I think many are expecting that cut to be Dakota Dozier, although that may not happen quite yet. We’ll see soon enough.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

The Vikings waived Blake Proehl and Riley Patterson, Chris has the details.

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.
