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.

i wonder what kind of stats favre would have put up if he had marvin harrison or reggie wayne when he was in his prime.

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.

Only time will tell on how good Manning is? He has a ways to go yet.

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.

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat
    • Sculpin
      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
