Im sure most of you have seen or heard about it, but if not, ESPN reported that the VIKINGS have the worst QBS in the league. No experience, and lack of talent. Is this a suprise???

Experience yes but talent no. I think T. Jack has talent and should be given the time to develop.

Jackson is an exceptional athlete, with a very strong arm, good pocket presence, and heart for the game of football.

If certain people think he is a "poor" QB based on the last 2 games of the season last year, well...That isn't depicting a good story.

I remember a benched Williamson, Deactivated Robinson, dropped passes, broken routes, line malfunctions, etc etc.

This young NFL player has talent folks, and the attitude that makes Superstars out of "good" players.

T-Jack has my vote for starter.

I predict the Vikes to be 4-12 this season, Chester to be hurt early (maybe even preseason).

T-Jack will be as follows:

Completion Percentage: 56%

Yards Passing: 3,154

Yards Rushing: 520

Touchdowns: 16

Interceptions: 18

Rushing Touchdowns: 3

You can think T-Jack has all the talent in the world but that doesnt matter. Until we see it on the field you cant argue much with anyone who says the vikings have the worst QB situation around.

you take favre away from the packers brian griese away from bears jon kitna away from the lions there isnt much at all for experience in the division with the exception of favre there really is no proven talent neither at the qb position. sure some will say grossman took the bears to the superbowl well it sure wasnt because he was so talented.

You take Randy away from Daunte, and you have....uhh...well...uhhh....well....hmmmm....

I am getting Ticket this year just so I can watch Thee Best Coach, Mr. Brady, Maroney, Moss, and the PATRIOTS go 13-3 and win another Superbowl.

I miss Moss, but he is in a better place now.

I would say the Vikings QB's haven't even had a chance yet. The Browns QB's have (besides Quinn) and I'd say they are the worst.

Well there you have it. Vikes quarterbacks aren't the worst, only second worst. Something to hang your hat on.

I dont think it is fair to judge them, untill they have had a chance to play. Unproven- YES. Worst- maybe, but cant tell yet, I will answer this in the end of october.

slotlimit - The Browns QB's have (besides Quinn) and I'd say they are the worst.

Yeah maybe so but if you had a banged up geriatric ward for an offensive line with absolutely no depth like we had last year Montana would have looked just as bad back if not worse back there.

Charlie Frye is one tough mutha and his completion percentage was respectable. Now that Dropcutt, Dennis Northcutt is gone and the remake of the offensive line I'm predicting a change for the positive in Cleveland.

It starts in the trenches and the upgrades and training camp battles will determine how much time Charlie has fleeing or orchestrating. We have depth on the O-line now even without Le Charles Bentley.

Last season

Schaeffer, Andruzzi retired(turnstyle), Fraley (only solid guy we had and that's coming in to the middle of the season, Cosey Coleman retired, Tucker missed most of the season (mental)

Now

Shaffer Steinbach Fraley McKinney Tucker

Now if Joe Thomas beats out Shaffer they could very easily slide Shaffer to RT and move Tucker into RG if McKinney is not the same after coming back from his injury.

With Matua and Sowells as back up guards and the versatility of Lennie Friedman I'd say right there is the most important thing that we have added that we never had since they came back and that's depth.

Jamal Lewis upgrade compared to Reuben 1st half Droughns.

Kellen Winslow II, Braylon Edwards, Joe Jurevicious and I 'm looking for Travis Wilson to step up this season too.

They will be a little slow getting started because of the new offense with Chud there but by no means will this team be another 4-12 team.

As fars the QB goes the Browns are right in the middle as far as who's starting, my nod goes to Frye right now but Derek Anderson has looked the best in OTA's but then again everyone looks good in shorts., when they put the pads on and start hitting I think Frye will shine. Brady Quinn will not be a factor (holdout guaranteed) so he will be behind the 8 ball. My main concern is getting the Joe Thomas deal done soon he's the most critical. Dorsey will never be anything but a clipboard specialist.

      People interested in deer still have time to contribute ideas and feedback about possible deer management topics that will shape Minnesota’s first-ever deer management plan, according to the Department of Natural Resources. Possible deer plan topics and an online comment form can be found on the deer plan page. Comments also can be submitted by email to DeerPlan.DNR@state.mn.us and people can attend public engagement meetings that will wrap up Thursday, March 2. Online and email comments can be submitted through Sunday, March 5, and people can both comment electronically and attend meetings in person if they wish. The DNR strives to maintain a healthy wild deer population that offers recreational and economic opportunities, while addressing conflicts between deer, people and other natural resources. Habitat management, hunting, research and monitoring are several primary tools used to manage the Minnesota deer population. More information on deer management is on the DNR website on the deer management page. ## Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Ever wonder how pure maple syrup gets from trees to the table? Visitors who come to one of the free programs at Minnesota state parks will find out everything they need to know to make a batch of syrup in their own backyard, using basic tools from around their house. Programs start this weekend at Whitewater State Park (near Winona). Options include a morning program from 10 a.m. to noon or an afternoon program from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25. Sign up by calling 507-932-3007, ext. 226, or emailing sara.holger@state.mn.us. Additional maple syrup programs will take place at several Minnesota state parks throughout March and early April. For the complete schedule, and more information about how to tap trees and make maple syrup, visit the maple syrup page. Some programs encourage dropping by any time for a demonstration of syrup-making in progress; others offer hands-on instruction with a taste of the finished product. Participants will learn how to identify and tap the right kind of tree as well as how to boil the sap until it is sweet enough to serve on pancakes, waffles or ice cream. Historically, the best time to collect sap has been between mid-March and mid-April, when temperatures are in the high 30s to mid-40s during the day and below freezing at night. It usually takes 30 to 40 gallons of sap from a sugar maple tree to get a gallon of pure maple syrup. The maple syrup programs at Minnesota state parks are free, but vehicle permits are required to enter the parks ($5 for a one-day permit or $25 for a year-round permit). Due to space limitations, some programs also require advance registration. For more information, call the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 888-646-6367 or 651-296-6157 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday).

      Most ice on the lake is still safe for travel. You just need to use a little common sense and stay away from current areas and possibly getting to close to shorelines, especially South facing ones. Could be 6" of water on the ice in some areas all right but I found only about 3" to 4" on the ice on Tuesday. That will run off or refreeze with a couple of cooler nights and we will have very good going for at least a couple more weeks. Cliff

      Minnesota fishing, hunting and trapping licenses for 2016 expire Tuesday, Feb. 28.  Licenses for 2017 are now available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold, online  and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2017 fishing licenses become effective Wednesday, March 1. New licenses are required for 2016 hunting and fishing seasons that continue past Feb. 28. Customers who purchase online via a smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers. A printed copy of the text or email also can serve as proof of a valid license. License fee dollars support the ongoing work of DNR fish, wildlife and enforcement staff to conserve, enhance and protect our waters, fields and forests. Minnesota State Lottery and Legacy Amendment dollars are not available for the regular costs of doing that work. Learn how the DNR spends license dollars on the License Dollars at Work page.
