I was at the game yesterday and I swear to god it was a home game for the Pack. They were cheering "Go Pack Go" throughout the whole game. When the Vikes had the ball it was alot louder when the Packers had the ball. Very classy of the Vikes fans cheering when Favre had the record TD pass they gave him a standing ovation. I was just glad I was surrounded by Packer fans where I was sitting, a joy to be around them.

Course it was a lot louder when the packers had the ball, the opposing teams fans always make the stadium loud. I was at the game too and it was loud when the packers had the ball. The pack did a great job not letting the crowd noise get too them.

History in the making! We are all lucky to be able to still watch the "Legend" Brett Favre play, and play so well. Watch him while you can, as he is like a Michael Jordan of football.

Although I think he is great, the Jordan comparison may be a little much. He is an all timer but I don't think he is THE ALL TIMER. We can debate it forever and his records not withstanding, if there is a Michael Jordan in football I think he is playing in Indianapolis.

Yea, it is great to be a WI fan when they win...but when they lose I have never heard so many whiners and complainers.

Nearly as bad as the Vikes.

Manning is good but he has great receivers, good pocket protection, and a running game. If this holds out for him for his career I'm sure he'll put up big #'s. But take some of them things away, and you may see his ability diminish.

Farve maybe didn't have Harrison, but he had still had plenty of nice recievers and a good line. He also has been supported by a stellar running game at times. I know you won't agree with me but Farve would not have a ring without Reggie White.

By the way, how has LLoyd done since he left Indy as a free agent. Maybe it was the QB that made the recievers not the other way around.

Manning rules and there is not a comparison with him to Favre...even in Favres prime. Favre has been a great quarterback, but Manning is fantastic. He makes the rest of the team look good. Because of his awesome passing, his line, receivers, and running backs look much better than what they are.

My grandma would have great stats with the "right on the money" passes Manning makes.

And, he calls and changes plays so much depending on the defense, people are always open.

We have to rub it in while we can, nothing last forever. Do I think the Badgers can be #1 or the Pack can go all the way, probably not but its nice to see them win a few games. I know how quickly teams can be good then all of the sudden stink. Got to enjoy it while it last.

The Packer fans I know arn't fair weather fans. They are die hard fans. Even when they stink theres not a empty seat unlike some Viking fans, the dome and blackouts.

I've never been a Brewers fan, but they had a good season. A winning record and just missed the playoffs. Unlike another team we know.

Packers and Badgers could lose every game for the rest of the season. I'm still going to be watch and cheer for them. I'am sure if the Vikings and Gophers had them records this forum would be quiet and there wouldn't be any bragging going on wink.gif Good luck hunting and fishing everyone.

WHAT????

Peyton Manning (age 31) is currently 7th on the ALL TIME list for passing TDs.

ahead of Joe Montana

11th on the list of all time passing yards. 10th on completions.16th on attempts.

He has the record for most seasons with 4,000 or more yards passing in a career. Manning is second on the list for highest career passer rating, behind only the retired Steve Young.

Hes had the greatest statistical season ever for a QB, hes a 7 time probowler, superbowl champion, and is a 2 time MVP.

What more does this guy need to do? He already has had a hall of fame career and hes not even close to finished!!!

Time will tell???? He has a ways to go? How much further do you think he has to go???? Does he have to cure aids or make world peace?

In the NFL it would take one big hit to take any one out.If Manning survives a few more years, (keeps a great offensive line), I'm sure his stats will be great. How old is he?

I wouldn't expect anything less from a true fan. With me being a Gopher fan and a Vikes fan, you can trust I understand staying by your team through thick and thin. crazy.gif I may be a little sensitive to things since we don't like losing to Green Bay but this forum used to be raging with Packer and Vikes fans a couple of years ago. The discussions are non-stop. Then most of the GB backers went away and did not spend much time here. Now they beat us, are at 4-0, and Farve gets his record and now they want to talk some more.

Nobody ever wants to talk with us when things are going poorly in GB.

I don't normally post here because I get ripped on, called names and pretty much told to go join a Wi. Site. Had nothing to do with the Packers not playing well. I'm just happy the way they started. Sorry man, my bad I won't post on the football forum again because your right its for Viking fans.

Funny thing is when I started this thread I never said anything about the Vikings or the Packers beating them. Just wanted to talk to a couple of other Wi. fans.

Hey Outdoor Ran,

Don't let them scare you off man! I am a loud and proud fan of my beloved Pale Hose and do battle all the time with Twinkie fans and Cubbie lovers. I also love DA BEARS so I go at it with Queens and Cheeseheads alike.

It's all good, man. We are all just big kids on this site. If you can take it as well as you can sling it this makes for some spirited debates and ranking on each other but it makes the day go by faster.

I'm guessing you are a Brew Crew fan so you might appreciate the fact that my two favorite baseball teams are The White Sox....AND WHOEVER IS PLAYING THE CUBS!!!

PS: Don't let the avatar fool you, I have a day left to pay off a bet I made to my favorite sparring partner Geno, who loves his Cubbies as much as I love my Sox.

Outdoor,

Point taken. My post was not for all, but instigated by one guy who has only posted once in the football forum since '05(to call Mike Tice a criminal) and then reappears with several posts this week. It is those types I was referring to. My bad for lumping a group together.

      Stopped by the lake on Friday and asked a gentleman that was out fishing.  He said 2.5" of ice.

      4+” on 1st lake on forest last night12/10/17. 7 houses out.

      Figured I would start a fishing report to keep it separate from someone trying to get ice thicknesses.  Fished three different lakes this weekend.  First lake we got to on Saturday had a side by side on it so we felt safe walking.  Hole at access had 7" and we stopped in a few holes along the way fishing and we found an average of 8".  This lake was up on the WE Reservation, long skinny and deep.  Fishing was hit and miss pike were chasing around the gills.  Caught a few big bass which was fun on the UL's and caught a few small gills.  Found a few keeper crappies and kept enough for a meal.  Average was around 11" for crappies and 7" for gills biggest being a 13" crappie.  Second lake is a very known walleye lake around DL.  we had 8" out there also.  Made the hike out to a shoreline break/point and set up with tip ups and jigging spoons.  I suck at walleye fishing and struck out.  Buddies that were 10-15' on either side of me landed 2 EACH and the one tip up 30 feet away also landed one.  Perch were THICK!  I only caught 4-6" perch. Sunday my fishing partner over slept so I went chasing bluegills and crappies on a small lake.  Drilled holes from 42' to 14'.  Fishing was SLOW until the sun came out and then the sunnies were showing up in 38' suspended and aggressive.  Hole hopped because they were all 4-6" but that's all i could find out deep.  As dark came closer my friends started appearing and we could follow the fish up shallower.  Ended up with a few meals for a buddy and his daughter who came out.  A lot of weeding through small ones for keepers.  Very spooky fish.  Aggressive jigging to attract and then they pretty much didn't want it moved.  Wax worms were key last night. Good luck fishing.

      Yikes!  I haven't fished OT County yet but been on four different lakes in Becker.  Last weekend bigger shallower lake was at 7".  This weekend skinny long deep lake was at 8" and it had a side by side on the lake. Large body of water that when it warmed up reopened had 8".  Went to my honey hole and had 10.25-10.5" on it.  Dang near drove out but figured I'd wait so I drilled about 150 holes yesterday and didn't find any thin ice spots.  My shoulder hurts from drilling holes this weekend and carrying around my big 10" auger lol.   Becker County report.  Fish were SPOOKY!!!  Tried a few lakes for panfish and didn't really get into them but they were spooky.  They prefered smaller jigs tipped with wax worms, tried soft plastics but they wanted real things this weekend was my finding.  Fished a lake Saturday night right before dark had tip ups out and jigging with spoons.  One eye came on a tip up other 4 came on spoons.  Had guys 15 feet from me on both sides both catch 2 and the tip up was another 30 feet the other way and I didn't get a bite or a mark!!!!  That's my luck though.  People catching walleyes what I'm hearing are downsized baits on dead sticks.  Buddy got a 6.5 pounder C&R on a crappie/fathead fishing for perch mid day.  I don't know if weather has them in a funk or what.  Panfish are spooky and smaller jigs worked better 4 mm and 3 mm had better results then 5 mm.  5 mm I was finding was spooking fish when they would get near.  I drilled holes from 42' to 14' and had best luck when sun came out in 38 feet but I could follow the schools shallower as the sun set ultimately ended up in 19-21' for crappies and gills.
