Weekend Open Thread: September 1st and 2nd George Iloka Jersey , 2018 Good Morning!pe you’re having a great start hanging out with your family, friends or doing whatever you do on weekends.Sadly, some of us (probably just me and MT) will be working Monday as our jobs require 24/7 oversight.Good luck to the remaining players who are on the roster bubble, although we all want the best players for our favorite team remember someone is potentially getting laid off their job.Bring on the regular season and the 49’ers!While we’re waiting, we’ll continue with our weekend thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Have another cup of coffee and drop by for some fan wisdom and snark. With that, let’s do this.Around the DN since our last thread:It’s roster cut down day for the NFL, follow the Minnesota Vikings roster cuts Tracker 2018 for news, rumors and instant analysis from Chris.Join The Daily Norseman 2018 NFL Survival League (I did, and will probably lose the first weekend) and The Daily Norseman’s 2018 NFL Pick ‘Em League, space is limited in both, sign up now.The roster cuts are rolling in but one player released WR Jake Weinecke was a player I was hoping could make enough of an impact to remain with the team. Lucas has Vikings kickers though the years, it’s not that Vikings kickers are bad, but it’s just that some were not clutch.Vikings news from other sources:From Vikings.com five takeaways from Thursday’s preseason finale over the Titans.From their lunch break series, ESPN North writer Courtney Cronin says the Vikings QB room “Mirrors the Champs.”Daniel House at Vikings Corner has a 53 man roster projection.At 1500espn Matthew Coller has ten or so players who stood out against the Titans also QB Kyle Sloter is making a strong push for the title of “Mr. Mankato.”League news: Consistent with the weekend thread, I’ll post league new in the comments.We come to today’s media selection: Rush-Working ManAgain, we all know the rules Matt Wile Jersey , but in case someone is new:-No discussion of politics or religion-No feeding of the trolls-This isn’t a male version of The View, so 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. We’ve got this week’s FanPulse results, as voted on by you, the readers, and the confidence level that fans have in the Minnesota Vikings is back on the way up after a temporary blip after Week 8’s loss.Following the loss to New Orleans, confidence in the Vikings dipped from 80% all the way down to 51%. After Sunday’s win over Detroit, however, we’re back up to 80%, as you can see on the graph below.That 80% confidence level is the second-highest in the NFL, and while two teams in this division are clearly on the upswing, the other two are even more clearly trending downward.As you’d expect, the highest confidence level rests with the Vikings’ next opponent (following the bye), the Chicago Bears. They are riding high at 93%, and as you can see from their graph Rashod Hill Jersey , they’ve been in roughly the same area all season long.Bears fans have been between 82% and 96% all season. Maybe, at some point, we’ll see that number start to drop a bit.On the other end of the spectrum, we have the Lions. After the trouncing they took on Sunday, their confidence in their team has dropped to 20%, which is almost the lowest it’s been all season.Last. . .and even further down on the other end of the spectrum. . .we have the Green Bay Packers. Following another difficult loss to a top team, this time to the New England Patriots, the confidence of Packer fans has dropped to the point where only 1-in-6 Green Bay fans, 17%, is confident in the direction of their team.This week’s FanPulse survey also asked who everyone thought the favorites to make Super Bowl LIII were at the midway point of the season, and there were a pair of very close races. In the AFC, the Kansas City Chiefs edged out the New England Patriots by a tally of 50.33% to 43.63%, despite the Patriots handing the Chiefs their only loss of the season thus far.Things were even closer in the NFC, where the Los Angeles Rams just barely held off the New Orleans Saints, 48.22% to 48.08%. The Vikings did come in a very distant third, managing to get 1.5% of all the votes cast.
