It’s Monday, it’s Labor Day. . .and, most importantly of all, it is officially Week 1 of the 2022 NFL season! Yes, we have officially made it, folks, as this Sunday afternoon will see our Minnesota Vikings kick off the season at home against Green Bay in the dreaded. . .well, for some of us. . .late afternoon window of football. We’re going to be getting our coverage started today, and we hope that you enjoy everything we have for you this week and this year.

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

  • Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and Kevin O’Connell want to win with their guys.
  • The signups for our Pro Football Pick ‘Em and Survival Football Pools are coming Tuesday at noon Central time.
  • Some members of the Vikings got new uniform numbers heading into Week 1, including our punter, which is sad.
  • Warren took a look at how Jalen Reagor can help the Vikings.
  • Two Old Bloggers want to know. . .what do you think of Kwesi now?

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.
