Your thoughts of this weeks game

32 posts in this topic

With the viking on a wining streak, (1) AP coming off a great game, T-Jack with a decent game, the head coach seeing what happens if you give AP the ball, and a couple good catches by the recievers, will the game be in reach at the 4th quarter? I think the Vikings will play hard to try to prove themselves as a team.

The Vikings offense looked better last week, even playing the bears defense. Although in the end, I think Cowboys by 10, there offense is passing, inwhich is our weak point. I think it will be a good game.

What do you guys think?

I feel that we have a good chance to be in it if they can keep Owens some what contained and Witten too we should be able to stay close with very little mistakes.

AP makes it a lot easier for Jackson to pass. As longs and butter fingers can actually hold on to the ball should be fun to watch. Wait it is football it is always fun to watch.

I bleed purple but I think the cowboys passing attack will be too much for the viking secondary. I hope T-Jack can have a geat game, and AP rushes for another big day!! Good Luck Vikes!!

The way the vikings play i don't think the outcome will not be decided headed into the 4th quarter. They'll be able too run the ball and there will be opportunities too get some shots in deep, but once again its if any can be complete. You know teams are going too try and load up on the run. And i gotta believe one of these games intsead of getting none or 1 of the 5 deep balls on target he'll get 3 of them and that will be fun. A young QB's game is inconsistent and one of these games the ball will be on target and the recievers will catch em'. But i'd be foolish too predict a win. Cowboys 27-16.

Well it looks like the Vikings will be on tv again, barely! I will watch the game, it should be a good game, there will be the best 2 running backs playing each other.

As for my thoughts of this weeks game, I think the Vikings will come out ahead this week, and next week of course grin.gif . Vikings by a touch down!!!!

I'm gonna have Rivers, Tomlinson, and Gates going. In another league I will have Rivers, Tomlinson and Chambers.

I play in three leagues and all total will have V.Jackson, Chambers, gates, LT, and the Chargers DEF going this week. And I also took the Chargers as my Eliminator (suicide/King of the Hill) pick.

Some guy in my FF league dropped Jamal Lewis 2 weeks ago. I quickly picked him up, and was a smiling fool last night- 4 tds + over 100 total yards.

I think AP will rush for 160 yds, score 2 td's, I think Sharper will have a couple int's, in the end Vikings 27-24.

AP 100yrds 1td, about 40 yards receiving.

Favre- 300+yrds passing, 3td's I'll throw in 1 pick

Jenning's will have 100+ yrd receiving with 2 td's

Packers- 27

Vikes- 13

Packers might win again but not by 2 TD's. Look for Bollinger too connect again on a few longballs this time. Holcomb missed several opportunities the first game. Bollinger will hit a few and make the pack pay for loading up the box. I think the vikings have a good chance. Momemtum can mean a lot and they have it after last weeks performance. It will be interesting if the vikings try too put heat on Favre like they did against the Chargers. It will not work as well but if you make Favre rush things he throws INT's. It will also be interesting too see how AP does again. I read something that said that AP really worked on being patient and waiting for the crease too open before the chargers. The coaches thought he was at times forcing the issue and not being patient. If the line plays like it did against the chargers AP will run loose all game long again. Its almost as if you dont care if a defense loads up on the run because you can stop him for no gain 2 times in a row and then just 1 crease and forget it, he cuts and you are not catching him. AP will get his, I think Bollinger will get his too with a few downfield shots. Now the question is if the defense can play like it did last week. A viking win wouldnt shock me, but if i had too pick a winner i'd take GB 23-20.

after all the stars shine (Favre, AP) the game will be decided by Crosby or Longwell. How sweet would it be to see Longwell kick a game winner for the Queens at the girl with the curl???

Vikes 22-20

How embarrassing, this was the worst game I have seen the Vikings play in about 6 years. Could anything go right? Well the good thing is we should have a really good draft pick this spring. After last week, I had false hopes for this team, not anymore.

Is Brad Childress the worst coach to ever hit the Vikings?

It's unbearable to watch him run our team each week. It's the end of the game, we're on the verge of a shutout, we could maintain some dignity and at least get some points on the board.

Nope. Not under chilly's watch. Instead of bringing in Longwell (well within his range), 4th and 7 with 51 seconds left. throw a 3 yard pass over the middle when you have no timeouts left.

Unbelievable...

It hurts to watch everytime after a win, its like brad gives the team the week off. We always get the pick of the litter dont we. Hats off to the green and gold they sure were prepared. And played theyre butts off.

I agree Childress is horrible, but he didnt drop them 4 int's that were handed to our defence, or drop almost every pass thrown to out recievers! I agree there wasnt a game plan, if there was it wasnt very good.

Childress could not put a game plan together to save his life!! I have seen so many times this year, at a crucial moment/situation, the camera shows him, looking at his "kick a** offense" playbook, look back to the field, look at the playbook.. complete deer in the headlights..

We got lucky last week. We won't see a game like that again this year. Thats for sure.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.
