     As of late Thursday morning , Davion Davis officially is in. And the Vikings will have only four receivers for Thursday night’s game against Washington.The Vikings have spent most of the season with a skeleton crew of receivers, but this will be the first game that one of their top two receivers has missed in 2019. And that will allow Washington to focus on taking away Stefon Diggs.Of course, it’s one thing to key on Diggs in obvious passing situations. It’s quite another to assign a pair of defenders to Diggs when all indications point to a run, because then it will be a run. And then when Washington keys on the run and quarterback Kirk Cousins fakes a handoff, rolls to the left, and begins to look for receivers who have gotten behind defenders who assumed they’d be chasing down running back Dalvin Cook, Diggs will simply have to beat one guy.Beyond Diggs and Davis, the options at receiver will be Laquon Treadwell and Bisi Johnson. It also helps to have tight ends Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith. As long as Cook can run like he has all season, it will be easier for Cousins to find any of his options in the passing game Womens George Iloka Jersey , even without Thielen. We’re riding the week’s crest, ready to coast into the weekend"Merry Wednesday, everyone!We’ve made it half-way through another week of the long off-season, anyone have any plans for the weekend? I see lots of fishing happening for the fam and I, as long as it isn’t blizzarding or something, grrrrrr. If it snows again this spring, I’m gonna get crabby. It was a long, cold winter. The snow was cute for a few months, then it started getting old Dalvin Cook Jersey , then it got old, now it’s gotten to a new level of ridiculous. I don’t even know what to call it, but I’m ready for some hot weather. I miss the south.Around the DN since our last open thread: Eric shared the Vikings’ preseason schedule, which was just released.From Chris, the NFL announced the prospects who will be attending the 2019 NFL Draft. Other Vikings and NFL news, and anything else I find that’s interesting or annoying:From, Wobby talked with David Carr, who talked about his ties to Gary Kubiak, and why his presence could translate to success for Cousins and for Cook , and the Vikings offense.From the USA Today, A-a-ron Rodgers SAYS he had some broken bones last year. I emphasize the word ‘says’ because I don’t believe much that he says. If it is true, and they knew about these supposed ‘broken bones’, wouldn’t that be in violation of league policy? I thought they had to announce all injuries.I love it when World’s Dumbest or another similar show has footage of guys trying to rob ATMs. One of two things will happen 1) They try to break in, but get smart and give up and run away, or 2) the police show up and arrest them.Those machines are not easy to break into, and they build them so that they aren’t easy to remove. Here’s a story from UPI, these ATM burglars are using their noggins a little bit. Just a little bit, though.From Reuters Womens Harrison Smith Jersey , someone is suing TGIFriday’s because they say that TGIF’s potato skins don’t contain potato skins. I wonder if they’re aware that TGIF’s buffalo wings don’t contain any buffalo, either. They could get a two-fer on that lawsuit.We come to today’s media selection:When I’ve got nothin’, I fall back to one of the classics. Here’s Metallica, 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 Jaleel Johnson Jersey , 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, and try the chitlins.
