Is it just me?

18 posts in this topic

Is it just me or does anyone else get that throw something at the tv feeling during Vikings games? Not saying that I could coach or play in the NFL, but seriously what is the problem? Are we just doomed to be laughing stock of the league?

Worse is after the game today we'll all be able to see the Colts and Pats play with perfection on both sides.

I dont know.. I just watched a guy set the single game rookie rushing record AND the NFL single game rushing record. Not sure I'd call that laughing stock.

The 109.9 yd FG return for a TD was kinda funny...I thought.

SOOOOO, now the Vikes are on the defensive end of both the longest run from scrimmage, Dorsett, and the longest td play in NFL history. NICE

sorry this was a halftime rant. ap had an awesome game and the o-line clicked, defense made good plays, and our third string qb came in and played w/o any big mistakes. all in all it was a good feeling win. this was an example of what this team is capable of, so why don't we see it week in and week out.

question is, now can we go into cheesehead land and dominate a good packers team and make it two in a row.

consistency, ups and downs, stupid penalties, questionable decisions, and not playing to expectations are what have upset me all season.

Exactly! And when I don't like what I see, for instance the end of the 2nd quarter, I eat then take a nap. Beats working. Fun game to watch, the parts I was awake for anyway... wink.gif

I don't think I could be happier as a Viking fan at this moment considering how things looked after the end of last season the upside/future of this team is encouraging to say the least.

Go Vikes.... grin.gif

What a game, things are looking up! Defense looked really good, qb looked decent, even jackson looked his best, and rice has a good future if they would start throwing to him more, and A.P. Wow this kid is the stud, if he keeps this up he will give the season record a good shot! Just think if he was the starter in the first 6 weeks! They need to find a way to get AP the ball 25-30 times a game. The Vikes are a good reciever, and a qb a way from our first super bowl win. One more thing, Childress didnt seem to make any game loosing decisions, besides maybe the 57 yd fg attempt, but that wasnt so bad, looks like he figured out that if he gives the ball to AP, he gets a win! grin.gif

The Vikings have a awsome running game, with AP and CT, run defense is unbeatable, good punter, I am pretty sure Rice will turn out to be a good reciever, if the Vikes had a calvin Johnson, and picked up Drew Breese, do you think they wouldnt be unbeatable? I know are pass defense has not been par, but they sure looked good yesterday!

That run game was the result of some incredible offensive line play. Those guys OWNED the line of scrimmage. They also had great blocking on the outside and downfield as well. Peterson gets all the credit but he wouldn't have had that day if it wasn't for the linemen. Chester Taylor ran the ball fairly well too when he was in.

I love it when the offense can run!

Can you imagine our running game getting better?

It will if we ever get some hint of a passing game and teams can't stack 8 or 9 in the box anymore.

Awesome game, Peterson... AND THE ENTIRE DEFENSE. WAY TO GO!

Lets see what next week brings. Will the D return to sitting back and taking it, or will they continue to aggressively blitz and control the game? I would guess the Pack will be ready for either scenario, so STAY AGGRESSIVE. If we do, it's almost guaranteed to result in a Farve pick or two.

Now we've seen what they're capable of in the positive sense grin.gif. With a lot of luck, we hopefully won't again see what they're capable of on the other end of the spectrum. Odds are they won't maintain that type of excellent gameplay week after week, but hopefully we've seen the last of the embarrassing futility displayed over the past year and a half.

A guy can dream anyway, right?

GO VIKES.. !!!

I agree, but I have to add one more thing- a head coach, too

Did anyone else notice that T Jack looked pretty happy to be standing on the sideline?

Good qbs do struggle in their first season or two, but he's not getting the experience he needs when he misses half the year with injuries.

You also have to take into account that it was San Diego that they played. That being said, I haven't seen that poor of a team in awhile? The queens did stop the run, but that was all San Diego could of possibly offered from what I seen.Their QB looked worse than ours!

      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"
