      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 .

Could it be less

Could a quarterback have less than 5 completed passes for the day? Jackson has to throw the ball a little better. This has to be some kind of record.

Ironically Daunte Cullpepper had 5 completions a couple weeks ago but at least he had an excuse/reason with the bad weather conditions.

Normally I don't give up on a QB or Coach this easily but......

Well, barring a run from the Rams or Phins or Falcons- the Vikings should get a 3 or 4 pick, and BETTER take a top notch QB in the draft next year. I am gonna be real honest here, I haven't paid ant attention to college this year- whos the best QB in the NCAA?

Boston College has a really good QB also. I think his name is Matt Ryan? Something like that. Vikes sure could use one.

You could put Tom Brady on the Vikings and it wouldnt help, he needs some recievers to catch the ball. If they end up with a a top 5 pick again this year, I think they go reciever, then get a veteran quarter back. If they pick up another rookie qb, thats a couple more years for him to learn.

T-jack sure did look horrible, but I am not going to give up on him yet. It was only his 6th start, half of the missed passes were right on the money, but dropped by the recievers. And when you need 10 yards, and all 3 recievers are down field 30+ yds, thats stupid play calling! Even some of the great quarterbacks out there, didnt start their careers looking good. I say they have to give him the chance for the rest of this season, then get a quality veteran next year, then keep t-jack as a backup for a couple years to learn.

Wade and Rice CAN catch the ball- Stonehands Williamson can't. Has anyone figured out why he was even brought back this season- and an even better question- why are they still throwing the ball to him?

Donavan Mcnabb will be a free agent at the end of this year and I believe the Vikes have quite a bit of cap room.

There are a couple of college qb prospects. Brian Brohm from Louisville is a decent player and most likely the first QB taken in the draft. Brennan from Hawaii might be a decent player and passes for 3+ touchdowns a game, but could also be a bust. He'll be the first round "gamble" pick in the 2008 draft.

I think the Vikes should try to pick someone up in free agency. Although there might not be a lot out there next year.

McNabb is still under contract after the year, so he would have to get released for the Vikings to go after him. Of the names out there I'm seeing only 2 are out there that would be somewhat attractive. Those are Josh McCown (Oak) and the other is Rex Grossman (Chi). The Raiders have 4 QB's right now and with Russell slated to be the starter next year McCown could be out, though I believe Culpepper only signed a 1 year deal, but I highly doubt that would be an option, and I'm pretty positive Grossman isn't the answer as well. The rest of the group are low-end backups at best.

If they look to go a new direction and go high in the draft they'll be looking at either Woodson(UK) or Brohm (UL) in the first round at their draft position. The other QB's won't rank as high as the Vikings will be picking.

Andre Woodson would be a nice pick, but I think the time is now... The best option for the vikes would be a proven QB, as much as I think McNabb is on the way down, we would be smart to take a flyer on him. There is no way Culpepper would come back here (other than the week he comes to the dome to enact revenge on us with the Raiders)

BTW, having lived in Kansas City for a number of years, and being a KU fan, has anyone seen Todd Reesing, KUs QB?? Guy has a great strong, accurate arm, and hes only a sophomore. He's gonna be a Heisman contender next year

The kid from Hawaii is exciting and throws a lot of TDs but he can be pretty careless also as he throws quite a few INTs.

As for the Vikes, yes I wish they would throw the ball to Sidney Rice more often, I think he could become quite a reciever.

Todd Reesing and KU put together TEN CONSECUTIVE drives today with a TD. TEN- thats INSANE. Reesing passed for 6 tds, and 355 yards vs Nebraska.

Brooks Bollinger is actually a good QB. He has allot more going for him than "Action Jackson". He had a good career at Wisconsin and, from what he has shown in his opportunities with the Vikings, he has lots of potential. He should be seen as the future of the QB position, not Jackson.

What do people see in Jackson? He had ok college stats, but came from a tiny program. He runs a 4.8 forty(thats slow). Why exactly are we anointing him the starter? Bollinger had better stats in a major college program, has better fundamentals, and has performed better as a pro. What is going on here? Why is Bollinger not given an opportunity? I hate to say it, but just because Jackson fits a certain mold doesnt mean he should get a free 2 year pass to "develope".

With Bollinger having another good outing, and a win, I do believe he should get the #1 starting position, and do believe he will be for next weeks game against the cheeseheads!

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
