Good Morning!

Well, no one in the front office has been given Das Boot as of yet. Probably wont happen until after this last game against Da Bears.

Around the DN since our last Open Thread:

Kirk Cousins and Brian O’Neill have been activated off the Covid List which is good news.

Warren takes a look at possible coaching candidates.

Vikings News from Other Sources:

Joel Corry takes a look at the Kirk Cousins’ contract and what the Vikings possibilities are. There is some good information there and it cleared up my belief that the team could add void years to Cousins’ deal without his permission.

Kyle Rudolph, former Viking tight end, said that Daniel Jones was the most talented guy he has ever played with.

Mike Zimmer said that “he can stand proud”. He can and should. Only 32 jobs in the NFL and he has had one for 8 years and did a reasonably good job but playoff appearances could be the death knell.

What would an Open Thread be without some mocks?

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.
