Man, it’s Monday again

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Minnesota Vikings Matt Krohn-USA TODAY Sports

Well, ladies and gentlemen, we’ve circled all the way back around and we’re at Monday again. We’ve got one more Minnesota Vikings preseason game to watch, that coming on Saturday night against Russell Wilson (who probably won’t play) and the Denver Broncos in the Mile High City. A few days after that, the initial 53-man roster will be set and we’ll be ready for the regular season!

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

  • Our friends at Climbing the Pocket talked about what they saw in Saturday’s preseason loss to the 49ers.
  • It sounds like the Vikings dodged a bullet with rookie cornerback Andrew Booth Jr., who needed to be helped off the field on Saturday night.
  • Warren takes a look at who’s “up” and who’s “down” with two preseason games in the books.

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.
