We’re half-way to the weekend, and the Vikings look to Detroit, where they will attempt to overcome the next obstacle on the road to the playoffs Happy Wednesday, everyone! We’ve made it to the peak of the week, it’s an easy downhill coast into the weekend, and the next big game for our beloved purple and gold. I hope they’re keeping their focus on Detroit, because we’ve seen the Lions dig deep and play well above their seasonal average when they play the Vikings. On paper, it looks to be one that the Vikings should be able to handle, but you can throw that paper out the window...

Coming off of a big win, the team prepares to travel to Detroit and continue their march to the playoffs Merry Tuesday, everyone! The Vikings’ enjoyment of Sunday’s win is short-lived, as their focus is now on Detroit, and Sunday’s match-up in the Motor City. This looks to be a win on paper, but as we are all aware, you never know what could happen in a conference game. They need a win on Sunday in order to maintain control of their playoff destiny, so let’s hope they’re prepared and that they take care of business. Around the DN since our last open thread: Ted takes a close look...

The Vikings offense made its first appearance in several weeks, and it was a welcome sight Happy post-win Monday, everyone! Now THAT was a fun game to attend. US Bank Stadium was rockin’, especially during the first quarter. Seeing the offense look like an actual offense again was a welcome sight for fans, and that place was LOUD. Getting to the game was a bit of an adventure. Kiddo and I took off Saturday morning to join my wife in the cities so he could attend his first game. Well, he got sick along the way. Not sure what it was, he never gets sick, but he threw up 6 times between...

A big coaching change. Can this help propel the team into the playoffs? Happy Wednesday, everyone! Wow, big news yesterday, huh? Anyone who read the open thread yesterday will know that I am not upset at the decision to move on from DeFilippo. That being said, he’s a person, so let’s do away with some of the rhetoric I saw in the comments on a couple of other threads. There’s no need to say some of the ugly things that were being said about the guy. We’re better than that. Okay? Thanks. I am excited to see how the offense responds to the change. I’m realistic, so I don’t expect...

Another pathetic showing by the offense equals a loss in a game that could have been a W. Hi I hope you can read this, my voice is shot from yelling at the TV and the game, but I’ll try my best. I’m writing this just as I finish watching the game. I thought about waiting until morning, but then I thought to myself “nah, might as well be honest, everyone else is likely feeling the same way, so why come out with some edited, filtered BS? Tell it like it is, U if you can’t, then have one more cold one & try again.” This game was another stinker put up by an offense that is loaded...

It’s game day!!!! Happy Monday, everyone! Hey, it’s Monday AND it’s game day! It doesn’t get much better than that, unless you also have tickets to the Dolphins game, and are taking your kiddo to his first live Vikings game, which happens to be the case for me, so I am pumped for this week. My wife is heading to Minny on Wednesday, as she will be taking in the Women’s National Finals Volleyball tourney, then little fishin’ and myself will be taking off either Friday night or Saturday morning to join her in the cities, then we’re all going to the game on Sunday It will be...

Another big game coming up for the purple and gold, ,a win would be HUGE in getting them into position for the playoffs. Merry Wednesday, everyone! Many apologies for yesterday’s thread (or lack thereof). A billion thanks to Skoldiers for putting together a fanpost. Life got in the way, and then work got in the way, and yadda yadda yadda. My life gets much calmer after this week, so it shouldn’t be an issue going forward. Hey, soooooo DeFilippo is the early favorite for the HC gig in Green Bay? I would ask you your opinion up here in the words (which don’t really exist), but that’s...

That offensive performance was..........quite offensive. Good morning, everyone Alright, well, that game sucked. Well, on the offensive side of the ball, anyway. Hats off to the defense for keeping the team in it that long, and it was on the road against a very good offense. This team can beat any team in the NFL. This team can also lose to any team in the NFL when the offense runs like it did yesterday. I have kept this mostly to myself up to this point, mostly because it’s year one and I want to give some time before saying too much. I am extremely dissatisfied with the way that John...

Vikings fans eagerly anticipate Sunday’s game, which may prove to be a pivotal game for this season. Happy Wednesday, everyone! We’ve made it to the half-way point of the week. I, for one, am eager for Sunday to get here. Yeah, the team is playing the Patriots in .........New England?, but I feel they’re up to the task. This game may turn out to be a turning point and it could set the tone for the final quarter of this 2018 season. It will be a tough game, no doubt, but I have a good feeling about it. We’ll see, maybe that feeling is just the Dos Equis. Around the DN since our last...

Sunday’s win becomes a memory as the team preps for Sunday’s matchup against the Patriots Merry Tuesday, everyone! Man, I’m thankful that Rhodes’ injury wasn’t as bad as I thought it was. I thought his hammy was kurplut. I guess it’s actually true that you can’t diagnose an injury by watching the play on TV, especially when you aren’t a doctor. Whodathunkit? Around the DN since our last open thread: Ted looks at the Vikings playoff future one week removed from an ugly loss. It’s looking brighter than it did last week at this time. I don’t think shades are required yet,...

The day after a big win is ALWAYS a great day Happy post-win-against-a-hated-division-rival-Monday, everyone! Most of you know that I love Mondays. You know what I love more than Mondays? That’s right, post-win Mondays. You know what I love even more than post-win Mondays? Right again, post-win-against-the-Packers Mondays! The team got a big win last night against a division rival, in a game that some would say was a must-win game. With the current state of the NFC, I wouldn’t go that far, but a loss would have made reaching the playoffs much more difficult. The team came up big in a...

We’ve gotten one day further away from the stench of Sunday’s offensive “performance”, which was quite offensive Merry Tuesday, everyone! Hey, Tuesdays are a lot better when they fall on the day before a Friday. They should have us work three-day weeks more often, this is rather enjoyable. That reminds me, what does everyone have planned for Thanksgiving? I mean, football, food, and family is a given. The real question is, what type of delicious creations do you plan to make that day? I’m going with my annual tradition of cooking a turkey on the smoker. I started this delectable...

The day after you meet ugly cousins Good morning, everyone First, before we talk about that........”game” last night, I want to say Happy Birthday to my beautiful wife. Starting today, she is older than me (going by years of age) for 1 1⁄2 months, and I will remind her of that fact daily. Now, the game. Okay, so you remember going to family reunions, and you get to meet some of your cousins for the first time? There are some that are.........attractive. That fact kinda enters your mind when you meet them, then you remember that they are your cousin, and you admonish yourself & you...
