      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 .

How about that Adrian Peterson today? 224 yards at Chicago plus a well needed win! Now all we need is a decent OC and some pass coverage.

The kid's gonna be one of the best backs to ever play the game if he stays healthy.

In the post-game radio interviews, he referred to Peterson as "Chester Taylor's backup". Peterson didn't even get the bulk of the carries. Chili got bailed out by Peterson all game long and he has the gall to call him "Chester Taylor's backup".

He needs to quit returning kicks though. Despite how good he is, you're just asking for him to get injured doing that.

Definitely get him off the Return game.....I know NO moved Bush to the Return to give their playmaker more chances at the ball.....but I don't understand how any team can put their #1 guy out there at that position.....Reminds me of Tecmo Bowl and putting Woodson returning kicks only to have him injured quickly I might add......

As an NFL fan, I have never seen such a burst of acceleration from a RB when there is a hole in the D. Reminds me of Barry Sanders. If only T-Jax can be more accurate with his passes the opposing D will have their hands full and should leave a WR open downfield.

But he is not thier #1 guy. According to chester the molester (childress) he is just the #2 running back. confused.gif

I think he could have been a decent rb, he just had his head in the olympics instead of football.

Only if he plays for the right team.. If he plays for the Vikings for most of his career then, NOOOOOOOOO! He will NOT be the best back or even close to the best back to ever play the game LOL... Do you really think he can be better than some recent backs such as L Tomilson, P Holmes, and many more solid backs in history, while playing for the MN VIKINGS??

I dont think so!

Remember L. TOmilson broke the td rushing record. Can A Peterson ever do this while with the MN VIKINGS?

What are you talking about??? Who did Barry Sanders play for again? That's right, one of the perenial worst teams in the NFL during his career. Didn't effect him. Tomlinsonmade the Chargers a good team, they were a bad team with him as well. First three years with him they didn't make it over 8 wins, I think twice they finished in the bottom of the division. But LT managed just fine with a terrible team.

Why can't he be good with the Vikes, I think he proved you wrong before you even posted that. He has more yards than LT as well this year.

Yup,

Hate to pile on here but I recall many a year that "Sweetness" ran roughshod over the entire NFL on some of the worst Bear teams in history. Many years they had no quarterback, no recievers of any value and the entire NFL knew the Bears were going to run Payton left, Payton right, Payton up the middle. He did OK, didn't he?

R.I.P. Walter.

I agree. Sir Walter was on some terrible teams, as was Barry Sanders. Just thing how their statistics would look if they had an offensive line that Emmit Smith had his entire career (not counting the 1 year in Phoenix).

I don't know how this could have even been doubted. He was drafted by the Vikings who also have one of (if not) the highest paid(which makes them good?) o-line in the NFL. Barry Sanders pretty much did it all by himself, but AD has an O-line. Seeing what he did in Oklahoma everyone knew he had the talent, health was the question. Coming into the year I thought Chester Taylor was going to be the main man w/ Peterson learning the speed of the NFL. He has far exceded my expectations already. Don't forget Taylor had 1,214 yards last year and the team wasn't good, Peterson obviously can do it w/ the Vikes and once our QB situation is set, play action can make us a multi threat. I can't wait to see what happens when defenses have to play an honest pass defense against us.
