Dummies

26 posts in this topic

Am I the only one that thinks the Vikes will go 8-8 at the very absolute best this season? The Dummies I am referring to in the headline is the new Vikes commercials with the dummies claiming the Vikes will go to the Super Bowl this year- they either need to yank these ads or have new ones made where someone is slapping some sense into these (Contact Us Please). Actually- leave the ads on TV- I need a good laugh every once in awhile. BTW- I truly believe 8-8 is a pipe dream so please don't say I am dreaming, I know it isn't going to happen. (7-9 is my guess)

They've got one of the best defenses in the league. With any help at all from the offense and a little luck 8-8 is not out of the question.

Maybe they will be the surprise team of the league. No wait I am dreaming. I am a die hard fan but even a diehard has to have some common sense. No names getting it done??? Good luck. I hope by December I can look back at this post and say I was wrong, but highly doubt it. I know the defense will be there but even if the score is 7-0 or 3-0 they still count as a loss.

One of the best defenses?? C'mon, where did they finish vs the pass last year and they lost Tomlin. I say 2-14. Plus, ChiliDog is a buffoon. My reasons they will suck:

worst pass defense in league

ChiliDog

No QB

ChiliDog

No WR

ChiliDog

No "star" power

ChiliDog

No history of winning

Childress does need to go- he reminds of that nerdy guy from the old Burt Reynolds-Marilu Henner show Evening Shade.

He's a cross between Ned Flanders of The Simpsons and Bernie from Weekend at Bernie's.

HA HA HA HA, no seriously, he is.

Slaughtered by a MLB??? There will be pain felt, no doubt, but not from AP, I can't wait to see the slow-mos of Urlacher eating his chin strap grin.gifgrin.gif Suprise team, yes. Playoffs? Probably not. 8-8 seems fair.

I think they will be better than last years team and remember they get to play Greenbay twice. 8-8 (which could make a wildcard)

I love the Vikes but am realistic. Id love to have 8 games that were good to the end but will settle for 8 halves.

Quit setting up the Viks for failure. Why must you pick apart all the negatives of the team. I know it can be comforting at the end of the season to tell everybody "I knew the vikings were going to stink, I said at the begining of the preseason they'd be 3-13, yadda, yadda, yadda". I don't know why I waste my time reading people talking smack about MY VIKINGS. If your predicting 3-13 then don't watch them this year and do something productive with your time this fall. I on the other hand, will be cheering on the Viks with a cold beer in my hand!

P.S. They WILL be 12-4 at least!!! and I can't wait to tell you at the end of the regular season, I told you so.

SKOL VIKS

If you can not be oppitimistic and enjoy the game then you can not be a fan. A fan will be optomistic and cheer until the game or season is so far gone. then they will just sit and cheer the good plays no matter the final result.

Fan short for fanatic.

Nicely put papabear!

Zamboni, nor do I do drugs. Now if I was an optimistic Packer Backer, than your questioning of my drug use would be warrented grin.gif

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
