Two of the biggest "tools" in the Shed!

Did I hear right,

Moss and Brady are skipping the Pro Bowl? Cry babies! Be a man and show up if you are honored enough to get picked. What is the worse thing that can happen, you spend a week in Hawaii and don't get into the game. You know if the Pats would have won the Super Bowl, thier mugs would have been all over Hawaii!

lots of players skip the pro bowl after playing in the super bowl. not just brady and moss.

the pro bowl is a joke anyways. turn it into a golf tourney or something worth watching.

Doesn't Brady have an injured ankle?? Moss who know's why he doesnt want to go. I saw Favre passed on the pro bowl also, Garcia is taking his place. I don't even bother watching the pro bowl.

Wild,

I guess I can give Brady a pass but why would he not announce it before the game? I guess he might not want to tip the fact that he was hurt but everybody knew that anyway. I think if I was honored by the selection I would show up, take a series of snaps, hand the ball off a few times and then stand on the sidelines and wave to the fans. This is one of the all star games that really drives me crazy with all the players declining to go. Moss though is another story....TOOL! Agreed?

By far the worst all star game of the 4 major sports.

All "all-popular" games are boring and pathetic. At least baseball means something and they try....basketball, hockey, and football are just pointless....last year at the pro bowl I think the biggest hit was on a punter......basketball no defense...and also hockey no d and no checking.......where is the intensity when they played hard in these games..i.e Pete Rose knocking over the catcher....Good stuff!!

I can see it both ways, I wouldn't want to see A.P blow his knee out because of a hard hit or Gaborik for the wild risk an injury because of check along the boards.

Rundrave,

Not sure about Urlacher but if he did then that would be wrong too! I just think that the attitude of the players reflects on the product on the field. I agree with whoever posted on this thread that said NFL Pro Bowl is the worst of the 4 major sports. If you don't think it is an honor to be elected then you should withdraw your name at the start of the season and say that you will not attend even if you are chosen. Then the fans could see who the real "stars" are.

Tommie Harris has been hurt all year with a nagging groin and hammy injury and just had surgery on his knee I believe.

As for Briggs, put yourself in his shoes. You are about to sign a contract somewhere that will be huge. Why in the world would you want to risk getting injured (Drew Brees) in a meaningless Pro Bowl and risk getting a huge payday. I would skip out as well. Now that I think about it, he did have an injury and didn't play in one of the last three or four games.

Windy

His teammates seem to like him and his coach has nothing good to say about him. Since I dont know him personally I would say that based on what people who work with him say, Yes, he is a stand up guy and performs his job well.

98 rec. 1493 yards 23 TDs wow!

Yes, his current team seems to like him. And as long as things are going well he is likable. Ask the Raiders, or the Vikes that played with Randy when they were struggling. I think you would find a different opinion of the guy.

Thanks Fish,

My thought exactly but I will let Sled speak his mind.

Everybody is always a good winner, being a good loser and acting with class when things are not going your way is the mark of a true "stand up" guy. Like an old timer once said about touchdown celebrations....Act like you been there before. I think the coolest thing to do is when a guy just hands the ball to the ref and bolts to the sidelines to celebrate with his team! That's "stand up".

The should get the guys together and just have a fun competition...not a game. The Pro Bowl is a joke.

But still, it is an honor to be selected and you should go! If you don't go, it shows you have no class.

actually moss was well liked in the locker room at minnesota...after he was traded for "being a distraction" they asked the players and they all said they liked him.

the fact is mccombs didn't want to sell the team leaving a superstar there with a chance to win.

remember moss leaving was supposed to help duncecaps i mean culpeppers progression...lmmfao

      I would suggest concentrating on panfish this spring from a boat or shore. Your chances of success vs trout would be astronomical! These are hard earned life experiences. Learn how to fly cast. period. Trying to learn fly fishing on  trout stream will be a lesson in frustration as you will be tangled in more trees than the stream. Fly fishing from a boat or shore allows you to figure out all of the nuances of the sport before moving on to a tree canopy!     Good luck on your journey!

      This so me and I bet it fits for some of you all as well!!

      Wow that stinks. I see Springsteel put up a pic in fb of 27 lb pike caught out there yesterday somewhere. Are big suckers easy to find in town right now?

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
