Open Thread

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Minnesota Vikings Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Not sure who had the open thread today, but one isn’t posted so here I am. I can’t wait for the game on Sunday. I think it might be a little close for a while, but the Vikes should pull away towards the end. We should see the first injury report today. It will be interesting to see where Anthony Barr, Christian Darrisaw, Deede Westbrook and others land on it.

Around the DN

Vikings released their unofficial depth chart with very few surprises

Vikings News from other sources

Vikings.com has the keys for the Viking defense on Sunday

Vikings.com also has 5 storylines for Week 1

The Vikings have teamed up with SharpLink to offer a “Pass or Play” style Fantasy Football game. I haven’t seen this type of game before. Sounds interesting.

Around the League

The Ravens have signed Le’Veon Bell to their practice squad. Sounds like he will be brought up to speed and then moved to the active roster.

NFL.com has their Week 1 Power Rankings

Saints have released our old friend Latavius Murray. I hope he lands on his feet somewhere.

Joe Posnanski is starting his 101 Best Pro Football Players of All Time list.

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 tip the cows, and enjoy the final day of our sloth soup special. Oh, and most importantly, Welcome Aboard!!!!!
