Get rid of Jackson

Recommended Posts

Ely Lake Expert

I know its only halftime and its early in the season and he is young, but I am sick of Tavaris Jackson missing short throws to wide open receivers for what could be big plays. There were several throws in the first half of this game that I could of easily completed and I'm built like a lineman. Jackson is making me with we still had Cullpepper. Maybe they can get Randall Cunningham or Brad Johnson to come back. I would like to see them bench Jackson and put Holcomb or even Brooks Bollinger into the game. They should be winning this game, but not with the ugliness we are seeing at QB. It's frusterating to watch. Rant over. Now you have my opinion.

I'm sick of him missing those throws when he's wide open to run 5 yards for the 1st down, yet he forces a throw into a receiver 2' away from him. Frustrating. Run Tavaris! Run! grin.gif

His receivers didn't help him out a couple of times either. At least 3 balls that should have been caught.

Like when he drilled Williamson in the numbers early on in the game. Cripes man! He did redeam himself with that "I can't believe he caught that!" touchdown but you still have to catch those short ones.

What are you talking about it's just a "rebuilding year"....for pack of years. Of course you wonder if they would have taken Quinn in the first round instead of All Day what would have happened.....I guess if our record holds we should have about the #5-7 pick again this season.

I think its too soon to put Jackson out to pasture. Give him the year and see how it goes. No picks thats impressive.

He is a rookie and you expect him to be the next Tom Brady? Get real, it won't happen. Jackson needs atleast another full season to become a good QB, which I believe we have that time, since the vikings are rebuilding, atleast on offense. Why would we waste our time with putting in journeymen like Holcomb and Bollinger?

Just sit back and enjoy Adrian Peterson.

I think someone had suggested earlier that they should just hike the ball directly to Adrian Peterson. That may be a strategy that would pan out better grin.gif

I can't totally blame T-Jack. Throwing to the likes of Butterfingers Williamson doesn't help his stats much. Look on the bright side, when T-Jack guns 'em into the turf they can't be intercepted grin.gif

Just a note on the Vikes QB's this year compared to other QB's at college and pro levels.... Jackson and the Holcomb take way too much time getting from center back into the pocket. It really is noticable if you look at it. Check out Romo and how fast he gets back into a pocket on passing plays. Jackson needs to get back faster for himself to have more time to look for a open receiver. The game Jackson got really beat up in (lions I think) it was unreal how long it took for him to get back into a comfortable passing position.-- and he got beat up pretty bad.

Just something I have seen,

Mud

      Hi all hope to make it this Saturday. Depending on the snow coming we should be able to drive on correct?
    • Hoey
      This past weekend, only two were caught by our group of three fishermen and they were small, in the 10" range.  
    • Hoey
      Why not go out of Swift?  I nothing about the Warroad access, sorry.  
    • Hoey
      OK - we made it back!!!  Every trip is different with it's own potential perils.   I finally got into my house on Friday around 11am.  My guests were rookies, so i spent time with each of them, getting setup, heaters started, Vexilars set, houses banked, lines prep'd and set, bait, etc...  The bite was somewhat slow and many small ones.  The day got better 3 to 430pm.  Ended up with 6 nice eyes (19, 18x3, 17x2), 13 jumbos (most ever for a day), 12 small sauger which we ate for dinner.   On Saturday we headed up to the south shore of the Angle, longer ride, so again did not get started too early.  Ended up with our 6 eyes for our limit, these ranged from 15 to 16 inches and a 4-pack of sauger.  Again the bite seemed to pickup at 3 or so and was done by 430pm.   Ice as 3 foot or so.  Snow depth varied a lot, depending on the condition of the ice.  Smooth areas were blown off to crusty 6 inches or so.  Rough ice surely held a lot of snow.   The drive back on Sunday was somewhat tough from Baudette to Emily, winter storm warning.  Slow go, low visibility, and icy roads, sometimes down to 15 mph.   Next scheduled trip is with my wife, son, and three of his Gopher swim teammates for spring break in three weeks.

      Those were caught from a shallow lake (17’) in 9 feet of water at the bottom of the first shoreline break. I was using a UV buckshot and minnow head since the water was murky. The crappie is still swimming the walleye not so much. I didn’t get the exact location. Sorry

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week,

      On the Bayfield side of the bay, the target depth is typically 10 to 40 ft. The basswood island area is where they go after lakers. There’s a plowed road that goes out there. As of last week the ice was about 20 inches in that area, might be thicker now. Check out the Bayfield webcam, you can see what kind of activity is going on.

      Wanderer, stop in at the River Rock bait shop in Ashland and they will get you pointed in the right direction.  They are always pretty cool about that.  Fishing near Ashland off of 2nd landing can be good.  Don't need nothing more than regular walleye gear, and some tip-ups and really there is no rhyme or reason where a guy should set up shop. Its a pretty wide open water and the fish that live there are always on the move. For us, most often, the sit and wait pays off.  It has been slower as of late, but still some fish..  Good luck, JH

      Anybody know if there is a pressure ridge/ice heave out in front of the Warroad Access? I know ice conditions will change throughout the coming weeks. Looking forward to getting after some pike.  The last few years there has been a pressure ridge there, last year it went from Springsteel over to Swift. And we've been up there plenty of times when there hasn't been one at all. Just curious to find out what conditions are like in that bay. Thanks!

      Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.
