Refs Praise Vikings after Lions game. ESPN.

1 post in this topic

Good article from espn. These guys are all about team.

Minnesota Vikings: First things first: How does Adrian Petersonfeel? According to what coach Brad Childress said in his Monday news conference: "He said he feels as good as he has felt all year long. That is what Sug [Eric Sugarman Minnesota's head trainer] said to me. He came in and [was] treated and was off to the races on an off day." (Smile.) … Let's talk more about the Vikings running game, which is first in the league in rushing, some 35 yards more than second-place Jacksonville. Like we've said all year, the Vikings' offensive line, anchored by Pro Bowl guard Steve Hutchinson, can be dominant at times. Childress praised that unit Monday, but he didn't stop there. "I believe that the wide receivers blocked probably as well as I have seen," Childress said. "I had an official at the end of the game tell me, 'Coach, I don't think I have ever seen wide receivers block like this since I have been officiating in the National Football League,' which is quite a statement." That has to mean something. When a team is running three- and four-receiver sets, it's good to have guys like this who can control would-be tacklers downfield … especially when it's Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor they're blocking for.

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
