Hopefully, most of you have the day off as we commemorate Martin Luther King’s 93rd birthday today.

The GM and Head coach interviews have begun and more requests for interviews have been made.

This weekend’s playoff games were less not very competitive save for the Raiders/Bengals and Cowboys/49ers games. The way the Cowboys game ended created an immediate negative impression of their offensive coordinator but should not be the entire analysis.

Around DN since the last Open Thread

The Vikings request to interview Rams OC Kevin O’Connell for head coaching job.

Vikings request to interview Cowboys DC Dan Quinn for head coaching job.

Vikings request to interview 49ers DC DeMeco Ryans for head coaching job.

Vikings Interview Packers’ Hackett, Titans’ Ossenfort for GM job.

Other Vikings News

There is some speculation that the Vikings are interested in Patriots OC Josh McDaniel.

There is more kicking Zimmer when he is down stories coming out which I find distasteful, unnecessary, and low class. But I am often wrong so maybe it is needed for catharsis?

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.
