      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Why don't the Bears get a QB?

Recommended Posts

Windy or others, tell me why they haven't upgraded the QB position when the NFC and the NFC North will be so weak? Can the bears keep winning in spite of Rex? 2 weeks into the season and he makes the same mistakes. His new best friend must be Devin Hester because he keeps saving his butt every week.

Where is there a decent QB to be had? I would rather have Rex than Tarholious Jackson. Maybe they would trade.

Trent Green, Byron Leftwich. Deals that could have been done. Heck, even Kelly Holcomb

Sexy Rexy it is. The Vikings are rebuilding. Even the most delusional of Vikings fans don't think the club is going to go anywhere this year. So if you're saying that GROSSman is better than TJack, you're right. But will that stay the same in a few years if he develops and makes better decisions? I dunno.

Jackson is young and can learn from his mistakes. GROSSman has been around a few times and is still making the same mistakes. Plus the teams are in way different situations. I would be upset at the Bears brass for not trying to upgrade the one thing that kept you from winning a super bowl. The Vikings are still figuring it out on offense so I'm not calling for them to get a new QB

Maybe they can keep winning in spite of him.

Hey Guys,

Here is the scoop in da Windy. The Bears LIKE GROSSman! The most popular guy in Chicago, outside the Bears organization, has always been the second string QB and this year is no exception. The Bears lost the season opener on the road so you did not hear the cascades of boo's you would normally hear at home and they managed to win their second game so you will never hear the catcalls as loud during a win but trust me, if they dump on Monday night against the Cowpokes you will hear the calls loud and clear for Griese, Griese, Griese!

The problem is Lovie keeps saying, "Rex is our guy". I think the Bears will win this year in spite of GROSSman, not because of him. Yeah sure he will have his half dozen or so games where he goes crazy and has a QB rating over 100 but there will be as many games, maybe more, where he is dangerously close to the single digits!!!

I see the Bears repeating their performance from last year, getting to the big dance but failing to take the prom queen home. Just my two cents.

Windy,

Make sure you tune the game in on Sunday night, not Monday.

I was curious about how Chi-town was reacting to a 'healthy' Rex. Sounds like if they keep winning, he keeps his job. As a big fan of the '84 sox, I am perfectly comfortable with "winning ugly". In fact, I don't know that the Bears have had a top-rated QB in my lifetime (maybe an agrument can be made for McMahon) - so we know how to get it done other ways! smile.gif njoy the game

CHICAGO (AP) -- Rex Grossman reportedly will be benched by the Chicago Bears for Sunday's game at Detroit, with Brian Griese starting at quarterback.

Citing unidentified sources, NFL.com, the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times reported Tuesday that the beleaguered Grossman would sit when the Bears (1-2) visit the Lions (2-1).

The Bears would not confirm that any decision has been made, saying only that coach Lovie Smith would be available for his regular Wednesday news conference.

Grossman threw three interceptions as the Bears fell to the Dallas Cowboys 34-10 on national TV on Sunday night. The following day, Smith, who usually gives Grossman full support, instead said: "Will Rex Grossman start Sunday? Well, our evaluation process is going on right now, and if you come out to practice Wednesday, you'll have a better idea of who will be starting at all positions."

Grossman has struggled ever since February's Super Bowl, when he threw two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown. This year, he ranks 23rd in the league with 500 yards, has a 45.2 rating and is 47-of-89 (52.8 percent) with a league-leading six interceptions and just one touchdown.

Now in his fifth pro season, Grossman has been inconsistent as Chicago's starter, but he did get the team to the Super Bowl last season.

Griese, a 10-year veteran, was a Pro Bowl pick with Denver in 2000. He has passed for 16,564 yards, but has also been released three times -- by the Broncos, Miami and Tampa Bay.

"I have confidence in our entire football team," Smith said Monday. "Brian is a part of that. After you have a loss like that, we all feel bad. We should."

I hate to say I told you so but, I told you so. Lovie can cover for bad Rex for only so long and the fans made it loud and clear that it was time for a change. Now we get to see what Griese can do for us. No where near as strong of an arm but he should not get the Bears into the trouble that Rex does with the fumbles and picks. Time will tell!

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.
