Todd Bouman

29 posts in this topic

Just signed with Jacksonville. Why don't we get this guy back in his home-state wearing purple and gold? He certainly would be no less of a QB than T-Jack and Holcomb at this point in their careers.

Makes me wonder.. how many other QB's are out there, similar to Bouman, that would be a step up from what's wearing the purple.

Ah, well, maybe I'm overstating Bouman's capabilities. But even so, do you see my point? I mean... T-Jack has the worst QB rating of all the starting QB's in the league, and worse than several backups too. There's got to be a QB somewhere that can pull out a few wins for the purple and gold.

It'd be counter-productive, I know. T-Jack needs experience and won't get it sitting the bench. That's the theory righ tnow, anyways. However, I think a couple years on the bench will actually help him develop. Then maybe next time his number is called to be the starter, he would be much more capable.

Frustrating year. Probably a frustrating couple (three, four, five....) of years. crazy.gif

Wasn't that the guy who got into trouble at a charity Vikings snowmobile ride at Mille Lacs?

I thought he was coaching football. I think his brother is AD there. Nepotism rules.

I'm wondering why Chris Weinke didn't get a sniff in Charlotte. I read he was hanging around there just in case.

Yeah Bouman was the QB coach at Buffalo. It sounded like a lot of the kids liked him.

At this point, I'd even take Ryan Leif. Childress is too stubborn to make any intelligent moves at this point. Both Culpepper and Johnson would've been better than Jackson this year.

YA BUT, things are looking up. They just signed Kluwe to a six year extension. They're gonna need him. wink.gif

The way the queens season is going they should have a good draft pick this year. There are 4 QB's that would be head and shoulders above TJack.

The AD in Buffalo doesn't even spell his name the same way (A instead of O). Todd has two older brothers, one of whom is head football coach in Pipestone and the other was head girls softball coach at SDSU until he got canned last year and I don't know where he is now. Ignorance is bliss, but you have to know enough to be quiet to enjoy it!!!

I've known the Bouman boys since we were kids and played on traveling baseball teams with them when we were young. Todd always had great skills, but he was a cocky cocky kid. He has been a serviceable backup QB in the NFL and could probably do as well as our other QB's, but he's not the answer to our problems.

Baseball teams? Didn't know they played baseball. I used to watch them play fastpitch every weekend when I was younger. Shane was the big wheel, Troy was a speed demon, and Todd was just a solid all-around player.

I think Shane is coaching softball at UNI these days.

Cocky? Technical fouls and ejections for hanging on the rim in high school b-ball games comes to mind... grin.gif

Baseball in the summers before they were old enough to play fastpitch softball...Probably like when Troy and I would have been in 6th or maybe 7th-8th grade(we are the same age-Todd two years younger, Shane two older)? I don't remember exactly when, it was like a million years ago now.

Speaking of quarterbacks, the queens are down to one healthy qb. I seen rumors, of George coming back, Pennington. Will the Vikes pick up someone? Or hope that Bollinger doesnt get injured, then it will be back to T-jack. They need to do something.

Well it looks like T-jack is going to start the game this weekend, get ready for the best game of his career! 9-15 for 155 yds, 1 td smirk.gif

Well, at least we didn't resort to signing Vinny Testaverde before another poor team was desperate enough to sign him. He looked decent on the first drive, but it fell apart after that. I have a feeling Quinn will be available at seasons end, Anderson looks good, and I am sure Brady will get sick of standing on the sidelines and will ask to be opted out of his contract

I thought I heard on the radio the other day, that if worse came to worse, Darren Sharper could be put in at QB?. unless I misunderstood the conversation. Did he play QB in college or anything like that?

Then who would we replace him with on defense? Well we could play it like 9man high school grin.gif I hope it doesnt end up like that! There just isnt much out there to be had, the Vikings will just need to dig in their pockets next season and pick up a good veteran.

Sharper could do the "Iron Man" thing. It'd be pretty sweet to see him lay the wood on someone trying to sack him though.

I would rather see Joe Namath using a walker lined up behind center than any quarterback on the current roster.

I'm afraid to say it, but how much you want to bet in the next NFL draft, the Vikes, well knowing how pathethic our QB situation is, will do something stupid in the first round, like pick another lineman, or a stone handed receiver, or someone from an unknown school who "has future potential"

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.
