Yea, saw the end of it, that dude is awesome. Probably means we only have a couple years to enjoy him before he's gone though. It is MN sports you know.

I have a feeling that AP is going to be a part of the Viks for a long time. Francise player forsure, and i believe the front office thinks the same. I mean, how can you not, by far in the top three for the best in the game, but on the other hand, it was the first year, lets see what its like next year, and a few from now.

I agree with Bass N Spear, he should be here a long time. I just hope he stays healthy. YOO ADRIAN!!!

Congrats to AP. If he stays healthy he will be our franchise! With AP taking the MVP of this game, Im sure that will help with a little extra national coverage for next year. If the Vikings front office doesnt get a good team to play around him in the next couple years, they are nuts! The Vikings have something real speacial with him, they shouldnt waist it like Detroit did with Barry Sanders.

He's definatetly one of the best if not the best running back in the NFL right now. If he stays healthy he should have a monster season next year.

We need to get a passing game around him so the defense is sitting on run every play. He is something to watch though.

Agreed. With cap room for this past year, cap room projected for the upcoming year, and Wilf claiming he's willing to spend, I could see AP being here for a while. Now just build around him. I remember before the season started ESPN listed 50 players currently in the NFL that would be in the HOF. The only Viking? Peterson. And that was before the Bears or Chargers game. Whoever wrote that must have seen this coming. If he keeps it up, it's possible. Fun to watch anyways.

Perfect way to top his season off. MVP of the Pro Bowl. Didn't he sign like a 5yr deal as a rookie?

#1 thing the Vikes need to do this off season is teach AP how to pass block and pick up the blitz. If we can mix up the plays with him on the field and not have the D guessing run whenever he is on the field he will be that more effective.

very true as well, all around back, he has a long way to go, but hes young, and wants to learn, and i think time will tell and will help him over the course of the next few years.

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
