NFC North Champions!

28 posts in this topic

It would be fun to go back and review some of the predictions for the NFC North prior to the season. Nobody gave The Pack a chance and look at them now.....look at them now. grin.gif

Packers have had a nice run, they are shoring up the running game over this last month, and look like they should be playing in the NFC championship game. Rodgers will be a talent when Favre retires, and the whole team is still really young. That's the NFL...parody and a chance for all.

Should be fun to watch the Pack and Vikings (knock on wood) in the playoffs.

im a vikes fan, but no bull, i said at the beginning of the year i thought the pack would have a resurgence like this. i just didnt expect the vikes to be the wild card out of the north. im not complaining though. getting into the playoffs behind GB is better than not getting in at all. fingers crossed!!!

Isn't there anything else Queens fans can come up with then "The Pack Suck", I guess when they have an IQ of zero that's all they know what to say.

Never would of thought at the beginning of the year they would wim the NFC North, good for them, a young team that's only going to get better.

I have to say congrats to the packers, they came from nowhere, I dont think anyone expected them to be this good. I dont like favre, but he has been a big part of the packers winning this year. The worst part of it is the team is very young, so that may mean several years of the pack being competitive. frown.gif. I hope to see the Vikes beat the pack in the championship game this year, that would be nice!

At the beginning of the year, I predicted the Lions would win the division and the Pack second.

I predicted the Vikings and Bears would have less than .500 years and neither would have a chance at the playoffs.

I can see I was wrong about everything...except the Bears.....

Please make that Queens fan. There was only one response like that. Most of us Vikes fans may have a wish to see the Pack fall on their faces but most of will also begrudgingly acknowledge when the Pack have met or exceeded all expectations at they have this season.

The Pack are going very well. Farve is playing well and even when he throws up a ill advised ball his receivers are making the play to come down with the ball. Add a resurgent running game with a tough D and they will give anyone a run for the money in the NFC.

Now that said, the Pack still sucks. grin.gif

Atleast your response sounded more intelligent than the other guy. I do like your final words had a feeling that would be thrown in there.

Down to earth- MN has to get there 1st and I would love to see that match-up 1 more time.

GB has to get there first also. I think fans on both sides would like their chances with that match-up though.

Everybody play nice now! Nothing malignant, just some good old benign ribbing I hope.

And I thought that after both teams played this year the rivalry would be dead until next fall.....Depending on seeding, and depending on a Vikings win on the road, a Lambeau rematch in the playoffs could happen....Both teams need to continue their recent winning ways though....

by the way, does anyone know what you get when you put 30 Packers fans in a room at the same time?

The real question is....can the Vikes stand to see their hopes and Dreams CRUSHED by the Packers again...what do you want this time 40 - nil? (Throw in a safety for extra insult)

You do realize if they play the Pack for NFC Championship...it will be played OUTDOORS in Lambeau. No artificial crod noise played...no begging to sell out or blackout...Just cold weather, frozen tundra and another Packers VICTORY!

Sometimes it takes a selective memory to get someone through a day.

2002 season lost to Atl in Lambeau

2003 Beat Seattle in OT at Lambeau

2003 Lost to Philly in Lambeau

2004 Lost to Vikes in Lambeau

Oh boy...that kind of record sends chills down my spine.

The Vikes should thank the packers, for the last loss they handed to them. The Vikings just needed a good butt whoopin, (like a juvinile kid) to straighten them out. Since then, the Vikings have been one of the best teams in football. If these two teams are fortune enough to meet again this year, it would be the championship game. I would love to see a rematch, now that the Vikes are playing better ball.

I think that any Vikes fan, or packers fan would agree, that a rematch would be awsome! And I dont think it would be the blowout it was on their second meeting of the year.

As a Packer fan I would love a rematch. Almost nothing I'd like to see than a NFC North Showdown to go to the Super Bowl. Well, a victory in Dallas would be very sweet, but in the event of a Packer loss, I'd rather be cheering for the Vikings in the Super Bowl than the Cowboys.

Vikings will definately have a tough job of it as they'll probably have to go through Seattle and Dallas on the road. GB will get either Tampa or New York at home most likely. I like our chances against Tampa, but New York could come in with something to prove after we smoked them earlier in the year.

Hello pot?...........You're Black!

2005 Vikes take a break from golf, take a cruise grin.gif

2006 Vikes go back to playing golf

I too am looking forward to a rematch......nothing better than a border rivalry in my opinion. The only problem with the above scenario is that the Vikings still have to MAKE the playoffs......Congrats to the NFC North Champs! GOD BLESS GREEN BAY!!!

The problem is you are comparing something completely different. My repsonse was about the the statement made that we would have to go to Lambeau in January. I was simply pointing out that it has not exactly been a visitors death trap lately. You are discussing trips to the playoffs, which the Pack has not gone to or had much success at for a while either.

I guess selective reading is very helpful also.

Even if the Vikings don't make the playoffs, I will be a Vikings fan.

And, I won't cry about it either. Anything is better than being a Packer fan. They love the Pack and WI, but all move to God's Country (MN).

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.

      Thanks guys for the informative replies. Can you also comment on the walleye limits?

      a tournament-record 10-pound, 2-ounce beauty was big fish and A record 110 boats fished this year’s tourney, held out of the marina at Fortune Bay Resort Casino. 492 walleye, another tournament record, were weighed and released at this catch-and-release event.

      My daughter is shooting my 12 gauge 870 Wingmaster really good. Im looking for a nice looking, nice shooting and dependable pump shotgun for her at a decent price. I'm not liking the newer 870 Wingmasters as much as I did when I bought mine 30 years ago. I recently saw some Weatherby PA08s. Very nice looking gun which rival the looks of old Wingmasters with walnut stock, deep checkering, fairly light for $350 new. Reviews I see from 2011-2014 have me concerned a bit about hard trigger pull and shells sometimes not ejecting. Anyone have any experience or knowledge about these Weatherby pumps? If there were issues, you would think Weatherby would have fixed them by now.

      I did this a while back.  If you have basic carpentry skills you can do it for under $200. Here's what I did.   Get 2x8 treated board.  Cut to length of back bench.  Attach a swivel seat to board then attach board to back bench using screws and glue.   Buy two sheets of 4x8 3/4" sheeting that's rated for exterior and a gallon of deck stain.  Stain said sheets.  Cut out one for floor and one for casting deck up front (i used the front bench with a little bracing in between).  Use left over 2x8 for bracing casting deck.  You will also need one 2x4 treated board for bracing of the floor.  Install casting seat up front.  Looks good and is cheap and easy.  I used cedar stain and bought cedar colored treated lumber.  If I remember correctly I cut out the middle bench.   Only problem was it added a lot of weight so had to upgrade to 15 horse.  Sold it  a couple of years later for a $100 profit.  Just an idea.  
    • Walleye #1
        Walleyes on Leech Lake found themselves spread out but actively feeding on shiners.  A Jig and shiner or a plastic and lindy rigs with shiners and leeches were the go to presentations during the course of the week.  Somedays walleyes were wanting it dragged along which is where lindy rigs worked well and other days snapping or twitching a jig and minnow was the ticket.  So being diverse in your presentations, changing up colors and cadences, and getting away from the crowds is the ticket.     West End - Fish were found on West Goose Flats, Star Point, Grand Vu Flats, Duck Point, Pine Point, Stoney, and on some of the breaklines in Traders Bay.  Depending on the day depths changed, but it seemed the best bite was in 8-14 feet of water.  Find the shiners and you found walleyes closeby!     East End/Main Lake - Main Lake Rocks are still producing a large quantity of fish in the 20-26” protected slot, with some keepers mixed in.  Annex, Submarine, Five Mile, Pelican Island, and Rogers Point all had decent bites. Fish were typically found in that 8-12ft range on this part of the lake and finding areas with sand and boulders was the key.  Portage Bay also reported a good bite up near Federal Dam.  Look for emergent cabbage in Portage, especially on those bright and sunny days where those walleyes will look to find cover.  Pitching a jig and minnow or jig and plastic for these Leech Lake Walleyes in the cabbage is fun way to catch them.     Jumbo Perch are also showing up with the walleyes, but often times will be shallower.  Found some of our best perch bites in 6-10ft of water, with some really nice jumbos mixed in.     Jason Freed Leisure Outdoor Adventures Fishing Guide Service

       Any boat restorers here in the twin cities area?  Looking to get some information and possibly a quote on a 12 foot aluminum boat. Would like benches re-done with carpeting, and possible floor work. Thanks in advance, I appreciate it!
    • HugeHogChaser
      Good evening,   i recently inherited a 12 foot aluminum boat, and I would like to re-do the interior. (Add carpet to the benches, possibly add marine grade plywood to the floor and carpet the floor as well.)   does anybody have any experience doing this, or recommend anybody that is good with this type of thing?    Trying to figure out if it's worth it to pay someone to do it, or try and figure out how to do it myself with no experience.    Anyways, thanks in advance!
