October 1 Trae Waynes Jersey , 2018 Merry Monday, everyone!I hope everyone had a great weekend. I made the best of my Sunday with nothing locked into the schedule, I missed watching the Vikes, but I got a lot of outside work done. Weíre in winterizing mode here in North Dakota, so itís time to bring out the snowblower up for its annual oil change and whatever else needs to be adjusted or replaced. The snow will be here soon, I donít like to be caught off-guard. I mowed the lawn, and I donít see more than one more being necessary for 2018.Iím sure youíve all seen the statement that Everson Griffen released late last week. If not, itíll be linked below. Itís very encouraging to see that whatever issue he has is being addressed, and it sounds like heíll be back, both as a football player and as a person. I think that the team handled this extremely well, respecting Griffenís privacy while showing genuine concern for him. Hats off to the Vikings front office, and especially to Mike Zimmer. You can see the amount of care he has for his players, and that itís genuine. Heís been through some rough times in life, having lost his wife Authentic Danielle Hunter Jersey , and walking through those types of trials will definitely alter oneís perspective and help to get priorities in the correct order. Letís hope this bit of news will help the teamís defense to get back on track. Theyíve not played like the dominant defense they can be. Coverage has been sub-par, and itís not just a player or two who is struggling, itís the entire unit, which tells me itís either schematic (which I doubt, thereís no scheme telling Rhodes to hold on to receivers) or something thatís mentally taking them off of their game. Maybe this will be what it takes to give them the lift they need. Weíll see on Sunday.Around the DN since our last open thread:Dan Persons shared the statement that Everson Griffen released via the Vikings.Quite a few Vikings team records are in danger of being broken by Cousins and Thielen, per Chris.Chris has the Stock Market Report: Rams.TCO Stadium hosted its first high school football game, per a fanpost from Chris.Vikings news from other sources and news from around the league:Catch up on all the week four scores and highlights, courtesy of NFL.com.From Vikings.com, hear Mike Zimmer address the media after Thursdayís game, also see Kirk Cousinsí media address, and thereís lots of other traffic to view in the media vault.From NFL.com, Earl Thomas suffered a leg fracture yesterday. This is an illustration of why I have no problem with players wanting to get paid or lock in some long-term guaranteed money. Thomas wanted a long deal, didnít get one, now his career could be over. These guys are always potentially one play away from being forced into retirement http://www.vikingsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-eric-kendricks-jersey , better get paid while you can.We come to our media selection:At 1-2-1, Iím guessing lots of Vikings fans are taking the approach suggested by the legend, Merle Haggard. This is one of my favorite singers of all-time, I got to see him live in Tacoma Washington in 1995, and I vaguely recall parts of that evening. Enjoy!Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:No discussion of politics or religionNo feeding of the trollsThis isnít 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 canít disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go awayWhile navigating the open thread, just assume itís sarcasmWith that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up and tie one on. Donít forget to tip your waitress Youth Harrison Smith Jersey , and try the head cheese. Our friends from SotaStickCo have put together a brand new t-shirt design honoring one of the true greats in Minnesota Vikings history, and purchasing the shirt also sends money towards a very good cause.The shirt features Hall of Fame defensive tackle John Randle with his iconic face paint that we got to see during his playing days (well, until the NFL said that he couldnít do it anymore). Like all of SotaStickCoís shirts, this is a high-quality item that wonít shrink or fade, even after repeated wearings.In addition to getting an awesome shirt, youíll be donating to charity when you purchase this one, as Mr. Randle has worked with SotaStickCo to ensure that $2 from every shirt purchased is donated to St. Davidís Center. This shirt is in the pre-order stage, and will be shipping on 19 October. It is available in menís, womenís, and youth styles. You can even get it in hoodie form.Kudos to John Randle and SotaStickCo for doing this for an outstanding cause.
