Happy Tuesday, everyone!Well, it’s another fine fall Youth Harrison Smith Jersey day here in the upper Midwest. The temps are falling along with the leaves from the trees, I feel an early winter descending upon us. I hope so, it looks like the fall walleye rush won’t be as intense (and fun) on the river this year, mainly due to the high water levels we’ve had all summer, and that’s the only non-football related event that makes summer’s exit tolerable for me, so as far as I’m concerned, let’s just head straight into winter so we can start ice fishing. Also, it really doesn’t get any better than tailgating in sub-zero temps. Speaking of tailgating, we’re taking Little Fishin’ to his first Vikings game this year, we’re thinking of hitting the Dolphins game in December. I’ll let y’all know when we know for sure, and hopefully we can arrange a little DN get-together if anyone else is up for it. By then, this little rough stretch that the team is having will be a distant memory, and they should be trying to clinch the North.....again.Around the DN since our last open thread:Chris shared Mike Zimmer’s update on Everson Griffen, the coach stated that Griffen could return by week six, but no earlier. Although I wish Griffen could return now, I’m happy to hear talk of his return. In those periods of time where you hear nothing http://www.vikingsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-everson-griffen-jersey , our minds tend to create their own scenarios, and they’re normally not pleasant. So, I’m glad to hear updates like this, it indicates that Griffen is making progress, and getting the help that he needs.Also from Chris, Dalvin Cook is still not operating at full capacity as he continues his recovery from the hamstring injury that ended his tremendous rookie season. I’m not surprised, these injuries don’t heal overnight, Adrian Peterson wasn’t 100% until after week six in 2012. It was probably harder for him, as he had to carry the entire offense while he recovered.The Vikings have signed Jonathan Wynn to the practice squad, per Chris. Don’t worry, I was told that he’s no relation to Spurgeon Wynne. It was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw the headline, too.The team worked out a couple of vet defensive ends, likely looking to add some depth until Griffen’s return, per Chris. Lamarr Houston and Robert Ayers are the two players, we’ll see if the team makes a move to sign either of them.Vikings news from other sources and news from around the league:At Vikings.com, hear Latavius Murray talk about the lack of a run game so far this year, and Dalvin Cook talked about that and also about his recovery status, and there’s more traffic you can sort through in their media vault.At ESPN Stefon Diggs Jersey , apparently the cast supporting Kirk Cousins has lost their dog.....or something. I hope they find him.....or her. I also wish they’d post a picture of the missing dog, we could be on the lookout.FoxSports says the Vikings need to apply some pressure in order to beat the Eagles. I agree, applying pressure is also a good way to get bleeding to stop, which isn’t really relevant, but it’s true.From NFL.com, the Chiefs came back, then prevented the Broncos from coming back, as the Chiefs remained undefeated as they topped the Broncos last night on Monday Night Football.We come to today’s media selection:In one of my ramblings in the words up above, I gave myself an idea for today’s selection. Enjoy!Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:No discussion of politics or religionNo feeding of the trollsThis isn’t a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the doorKeep 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 tagsNo pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employerIf you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go awayWhile navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasmWith that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up and tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress Authentic Kyle Rudolph Jersey , and try the head cheese. Good morning Horners! The Detroit Lions came to town where they had beaten the Minnesota Vikings twice at US Bank Stadium. Well, that did not happen on Sunday where the Vikings defense put on a clinic and set a new Vikings record sacking Matthew Stafford 10 times. Ted, Drew and I celebrated wildly. We loved the results. Danielle Hunter now leads the NFL with 11.5 sacks but is not just a pass rushing specialist. He’s the whole deal playing the run game just as well. We saw that Everson Griffen, Sheldon Richardson, Linval Joseph, Tom Johnson, and Stephen Weatherly all combining with Hunter to put on a show. Andre Patterson has coached these young men to a level rarely seen and definitely deserved a game ball himself.10 sacks were tallied against the Lions setting a new Vikings record.Photo by Adam Bettcher/Getty ImagesAdam Thielen extended his touchdown streak. Woot! Chad Beebe debuted and caught everything thrown his way. Then there was the return of the explosiveness of Dalvin Cook, who was clocked at 22.7 mph on his 70-yard run. He and LaTavius Murray look similar to Robert Smith and Leroy Hoard. Expect more of that in the future. Next stop will be for a Sunday night prime time game at the Chicago Bears to battle for the lead in the division.We look forward to the bye week, where GMG has special shows planned, but for right now it is time to celebrate a very good win and the invention of the “sackle”. Laugh and relive this game with us, and tell us what you think.Like, subscribe, and ring that damn bell! Then shout SKOL! As always, enjoy the watch!
