Norske Thorsday, everybody, and welcome back to your favorite Minnesota Vikings website for another edition of the Open Thread! Week 7 in the NFL officially gets underway tonight, and the Vikings. . .well, it’s still the bye week, but there will be plenty of other things going on around the league to keep track of.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
- Our friends at Homage have brought back authentic Starter Jackets for the holiday season!
- Punter Ryan Wright became the second member of the team to win the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week Award in the last three weeks.
- We need your help to construct our Five Good Questions segment for this week.
- The Vikings filled the hole they had on the 53-man roster by signing OLB Benton Whitley from the Chiefs’ practice squad.
- Matt takes a look at some potential “under the radar” trade candidates for the Vikings as the trade deadline approaches.
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.
