      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 .

AD saves chiilies job?

Did Petersons record day save Childress's job or just postpone the enivetible? IMHO childress is a good assistant but lacks the management skills to be a head coach. Now he will look like a genius for picking AD, but just dont forget who he drafted last year.

I really don't think there is any chance whatsoever that Ziggy will fire Childres, even if we lose every game which we won't.. blush.gif

I actually think the coach is doing a good job. He just has NOTHING to work with as far as a passing attack goes.

MN answer is to always fire the coach. It takes 4-5 years to get a new coach in and try to win. Give the guy a chance.

Besides, who else will you get? Bring back Tice? Denny?? Les Steckel???

We should have fired Denny and kept Tony D years ago. That was our biggest mistake. But, it is easy to coach when you have a great quaterback. It is not when you do NOT have a quarterback.

Well, theres a little known coach without a job out there named Marty Schottenheimer- after living in KC during his regime, and seeing what he did in San Diego, I think I'd take him

BTW- you forgot one- Billick was the Vikes offensive coordinator, and has since won a ring without any offense whatsoever in Baltimore, could have promoted him as well

I don't disagree with much of what you said but let me ask you a couple of questions.

Who is responsible for the QB situation?

If the QB's can't execute your offense, at what point would you try to change to an offense they might have more success with?

How many years has McCarthy been at GB? Marinelli at Det? How are those teams doing? How many years was Gruden in Tampa before he won the SB? How many years before Lovie started winning in Chicago?

I am not on the fire Childress bandwagon yet and he deserves a fair chance, but we are now a year and a half into it and if it wasn't for Peterson we would probably be looking at a 1-7 record under Chilly this year. Not exactly forward progress. Remember he took over a team that was 9-7 and he called it the "plum job" that was available at the time.

They hired the great offensive minded Billick to help the Ravens build an offense to go along with their dominating Defense....ooops didn't work so well.

Billick has a ring because Ray Lewis and that defense.

To me the head coach is overated as far a winning team goes.

Yes, but look who was on those teams. At least those teams have something to work with.

We have NO quaterback. We have NO receivers. We have no pass attack whatsoever.

Change your offense? To what? Run, run, run, run, run. That won't work.

Is Childress a GREAT coach. No. Was he the best to get at the time? Yes. Can we do better? Yes. Can we do worse? Oh yea. The TEAM is the #1 reason we win or lose...not the coach.

Chilly took a team that was 9-7 with a good quaterback and receivers. He lost them the first year. That is not his fault.

Having a good running back, a good quarterback, and a great wide receiver opens up the play book a lot. Who do we have now that "opens the play book"? Running the ball every play won't do it. And, we can't even think about passing the ball deep.

Is Chilly the answer for this team? No. Is he the reason we are not succeeding? No. I am a huge Vikings fan, but lets face it...we suck. We need to hire a veteran QB and some receivers. Or, sign a good prospect QB in the draft and sign a veteran receiver or two.

IMO Gruden won the Super Bowl with Dungy's team only because he has only gone downhill since. Childress inherited Tice's team which falling apart on and off the field. He is trying to incorporate a west coast offense by way of the draft, which will take time. Offensively look how young our skill position players are. Our young d-backs are looking good though and I think Winfield and Sharper are great veteran leaders who have a big part in coaching these guys up through competition, something that the offensive guys lack.

It sucks to wait and see but really thats what we're gonna have to do.

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.
