packers/broncos

Anyone see that run by Selvyn Young down too the 5 yardline that called back by a holding call? You guys see the replays? Where was the holding?? You ever see such a phantom call?? Another team that basically got points taken off the board against the pack by the refs, imagine that.

All that matters is the Packer's won and you can add 1 more highlight reel to the many he already has. The man starts the game with a 79yrd td pass to Jones then ends the game with an 82 yrd td Jennings, how sweet is that....

Exactly. Who's better than Brett Favre? (rhetorical question). That was just amazing last night seeing the "old guy" pumping 70+ yd TD passes like he was just out of college. Sure makes it fun to watch.

I would take Tom Brady any day. Maybe even Peyton Manning. If you match Favre in his hay day to these too, they would win I think. Favre is a great QB, but I get so sick of the comentators stroking him it makes me wanna puke.

I was going to say Brady and Manning also. Favre had been playing excellent ball this year without a running game and a few rookie wideouts, not much more the guy can do. Can you imagine if Favre had a line like Brady with all the protection then all the weapons he has around him, now that would be something.

Oh, no question I'd rather have Brady, Manning, or even Romo on my team before Favre, but that's why I said "rhetorical question". Who's better to watch light it up for a big play than Favre...he has his moments where it's just something great to watch. The three previously mentioned are methodical in their approach but Favre has to make it happen himself with the lack of talent that surrounds him. Sometimes that means going off the script to get it done and nobody does, or has done, it better than Favre.

I just think there are very few like him in the NFL (all positions) that play the game the way he does, and you could probably count them on one hand, but Manning and Brady aren't included on that list regardless of their stats, IMO.

He is a very fun QB to watch everyweek. What I want to know is where are all the Favre haters from the past years on here, they have been quite all year long I wonder why?

You mean like Brady has had his entire career until this year no recievers and average running backs at best.

You do have to give Favre credit his last few years have been terrible almost embarrassing really just about everyone thought he should retire.

Fun to watch for sure inspite of the tool packer fans. shocked.gif

Ok, I will bite grin.gif. You guys have been listening to the comentaters for to long, you are begging to sound just like them! I would rather watch the vikings loose, then have to watch the packers win because the refs need to help them win grin.gif After 30+ years of playing in the nfl, I too would hold alot of records grin.gif.

How was that, was that good enough for ya? grin.gif

I'm sure that call was a lot different than the questionable ones that went against the Pack to keep some Bronco drives alive. Pack had 13 penalties for 103 yards vs the Broncos who had 9 for 63 yards. I guess I'm missing our gripe.

While I like Tony Romo, I think it's a bit premature to mention him with those other QBs. He's had roughly 1 year where he's been the starter. At times he's been fantastic and others pretty terribe (5 pic game a few weeks ago).

As for Favre, he's still got talent and a lot of enthusiasm for the game which makes him fun to watch. He's had one bad year in his career (2005), where the team finished with a losing record. Other than that He's led the team to a 500 or better season, which is pretty impressive given todays NFL and the volatilty of rosters.

Anyone who says they wouldn't want a QB who brings that type of success to their team for that long, is lying through their teeth.

Sound like anyone you know? grin.gif

Farve is an outstanding QB and had a great game last night. One call doesn't ever change a game completely but it may only change the part of the game after it. Did the ref blow the call? IMO, yes. Should that be an excuse for Denver to lose? No, they still got inside the 10 anyways and failed to get it in the endzone. All that said, GB has been the beneficiary of two questionable calls at key times that are at least partially responsible for two wins. I didn't see the early part of the game but the two key penalties I saw on GB in the late Denver drive (Bigby and Woodson) were legit.

I still think its hilarious that Farve demanded a trade after TT didn't deal for Moss. Fast young receivers can make any old fart look good. Remember Cunningham?

2 / 20 yards came in the last 30 seconds of the first half. I looked at the wife and said, "they are just making these calls now to even the box score later.

Here we go........

You guys whining about bad calls and Favre not being any good sure sound like the bears fans down here. I really thought you guys were better than that! LOL Can't you just give credit where credit is due?? We'll see where Brady and Manning end up at the end of their careers. Heck, Aikman made the hall of fame with basically a pro bowl team aroung him every year and stats that aren't in the same league with any of the others mentioned.

Be honest, give him his due.

Freddie,

Where did anyone say Farve wasn't any good? I believe a few said Manning and Brady were better but that is hardly a insult.

We are whining for saying what the announcers pointed out also. The same guys announcing the game who fall all over themselves to compliment Farve said it was a questionable call. If that was a hold, they should be calling a hold on almost every play in a game. I am not saying the guy didn't hold but the refs probably let 20 other plays with blocks like that go earlier in the night.

perhaps the refs are friends of tim donnaghey(sp.) confused.gif

seems like some have never seen a bad call before. and it was a bad call, but they happen all the time. if that score holds up that also gives favre more time to go down and score. you never know

Questionable calls like Atari Bigby hitting a reciever out of bounds? Or Atari Bigby mugging a reciever? A horrible phantom holding call, no way you can dispute it, basically too points off the board for the broncos. Simple as that. Just simply saying its alot easier for a team too win on the road when the home team gets points taken away. Am i saying it cost the broncos the game? He!! no, they should have put the game too rest at the end of regulation. Its just rediculous too see a call like that. It just makes a person wonder what the ref is seeing too throw that flag. I guarantee the ref who threw that flag and the ref who blew the fumble dead against the vikings both got their rear ends handed too them.

      We struggled on walleye on Frazer bay this saturday, so sunday morning I started throwing senkos.  Not quite consecutive casts like Wanderer, but i went all morning catching nothing, then caught these two cousins with 3 min of each other, smallie off the point, then the big mouth around the corner in a shallow bay.  18" smallie, 17" LMB. Good fun.    We did get about a dozen walleye on sunday night after the storms chased 15 boats away from the point we were fishing.  Mostly small, but a couple keepers.  Chartruese Jig and rainbows in about 10-12 FOW.  Couldn't buy a bite with a chub.

      I have good Jeremy how have you been doing. I need to get out fishing with you soon.
    • Walleye #1
      Stick in the Mud   I do think sometimes that those fish see so many jigs and shiners that something such as a crawler or leech is a great change up and will get bites.  Also with the bug hatches that are happening, those are two great baits.       Leech Lake   Leech Lake Walleyes once again found themselves spread out and in different areas and related to different pieces of Leech Lake structure.  Shiners and Leeches seemed to be the bait of choice for those Leech Lake Walleyes, but plastics are still catching some fish.  Be sure to stop in at Full Stringer Bait and Tackle, Swansons Bait and Tackle, Tutts Bait and Tackle, or Sportland Bait and Tackle for all your bait and tackle needs.     West End The LOA Fishing Guides found much of their success on the West End of Leech Lake.  Focusing in on the flats around West Goose in depths of 7-10ft of water, as well as the wind blown points such as Duck, Big Hardwoods, Ottertail, Pine, and Bowmans.  Sucker Bay also proved to have a good wind driven bite throughout the weekend.   A Jig and Minnow was the best presentation by far, but in most instances instead of jigging it, dragging or swimming it along the bottom seemed to work best, but when the front came in on Sunday the Leech Lake Walleyes were snapping and aggressively jigging was provoking the bite.  When things slowed down, slowing down with a lindy rig and leech put fish in the boat as well.  Green cabbage once again was a key to finding active walleyes and jumbo perch in 5-8ft of water.  Pitching an 1/8th oz KenKatch jig with a shiner caught Leech Lake Jumbos, Walleyes, and pike.  Slip bobbers and leeches/shiners also have put fish in the boat being either fished in the weeds or windblown points.   East End/Main Lake On the Main Lake, the rocks still were producing a great bite as well as some of the East End points such as Battle, Sugar, and Five Mile when the strong Westerly winds were blowing.  Annex, Submarine, Pelican, and North Bar were all producing fish in 10-14ft of water. Lindy Rigs with leeches or shiners seemed to work best, but the biggest fish still seem to want a 1/8th or 1/4oz jig and shiner.  
      Leech Lake Crappie and Bluegill fishing still remains strong.  When the weather warms up for a couple days both species are moving onto their beds and are actively feeding.  Looking to Boy Bay, Millers Bay, Shingobee, and Steamboat for the best action in 3-6 feet of water.  Just remember to use selective harvest as these fish are more vulnerable.

      Memorial Weekend,      Hit Waconia Saturday morning for bass. Caught about 40 largemouth--most from 14 to 17 inches, with a few 17 and 18 inchers--and several nice pike. Fish were in cabbage out from bedding areas, in about 6 to 9 feet of water. Fish were scattered, lying in the weeds looking up for sunfish that are staging in these areas preparing to move in and bed. With this situation, we buzzed spinnerbaits and weedless spoons over and through the tops of the weeds, and the bass aggressively came up on them, as well as some pike. Had one lazy muskie follow as well. Got good footage for a bass segment of Fishing and Hunting the North Country on You Tube. Added footage of a couple smallies from out in the Hutch area Saturday evening. The bass fishing will continue to get better as the water warms, with more big ones, and the sunfish bedding bite is probably only a week or less away. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Memorial Weekend,      Out on Washington Saturday afternoon and evening after hitting Waconia for bass Saturday morning. Caught largemouth, smallmouth, and pike. Added footage of a couple smallies to the largemouth and pike footage from Waconia for a bass segment of Fishing and Hunting the North Country on You Tube. Caught the bass and pike on Washington in four to seven feet of water, out from bedding areas, on spinnerbaits, Rippin' Raps, and Shadow Raps. Up on Mille Lacs this coming weekend for a walleye tournament, then will be back out in the Hutch area the next weekend guiding. We were targeting bass this weekend, but got a tip that walleyes are biting on a couple Hutch area lakes on live bait. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Geez Terry! Now you will be telling me that walleyes are only good muskie bait! Cliff

      Nice report Cret Musta been a thrill getting that 9.75 Gill.  
    • JeremyCampbell
      Wow dude lol Sup Moose how you been?
    • guideman
      Vermilion has excellent fishing for both bass species   The east end has the best Smallmouth action and the west end has the best Largemouth action, however you can catch either on both sides of the lake.  For Smallmouth, rocks, docks, points, saddles, reeds, wood and the shoreline rubble are all very productive. Most of the green bass are found in or near the slop and the west end has the best of what they like the most. Spinnerbaits, any color as long as it's white, stick baits, cranks, topwaters, jigs, swim baits and soft plastics all work for Smallies. Jigs, topwaters(Frogs) plastics and a host of other stuff will catch the green bass. Have a great time, the midweek traffic is very minimal.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bla bla bla, all this Walleye talk is boring me to death.   The real opening day is this Saturday when the Muskie opener comes to Minnesota and the Big V.  I'll be out fishing with my son and grandson searching for some real fish.   The weather looks great, my baits are all sharpened and the new line is on all my rigs. Bucktails, Glittertails, spinnerbaits and minnow style cranks will make up most of our arsenal, however we will also be tossing a few topwaters looking for those Big green girls and not even talking about Walleye fishing.   Have a great weekend everybody!   "Ace" "It's just fishing man"
