A new day, a new thread

We have officially completed Week 6 in the National Football League, ladies and gentlemen. That means we’re well and truly into the bye week for the Minnesota Vikings, as we now have to wait until Week 8 to see them take the field again. But don’t worry. . .we’ll get through the bye week together, I promise.

Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .

  • Both Justin Jefferson and Kevin O’Connell are among the front-runners for the big regular season awards in the NFL.
  • Speaking of O’Connell, he and his coaching staff appear to have solved the team’s biggest problem from last season.
  • The team made a roster move on Monday, activating receiver Blake Proehl from the PUP list and waiving safety Myles Dorn.

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.
