Totally Wrong About Vikings!

Recommended Posts

JIvers

I've never been so happy to be so totally wrong about something! I predicted that the Vikings would lose 34-0 to the Packers today, and predicted a total Purple meltdown. Wrong! The Vikings came through, and sent the Packers home for the year, and at Lambeau no less! Awesome! You guys who kept the faith when I predicted doom were right, and I was wrong.

In my defense, I did say on this forum that if the Vikings had a chance, Favre would have to throw two or three interceptions...he had four. grin.gif I didn't think it would happen, though. And, the Vikings offense did not take advantage of the turnovers as they should have--it was actually the Viking defense that came through tonight.

Now, on to Philly. I never considered how the Vikings might do against the Eagles next Sunday, because I gave them no chance to beat the Packers. Who knows what might come now?

You and about a million other fans. But we watch these guys all year, how CAN we think otherwise. confused.gif

Offerd played a great game? Who expected that? Even Russell did something for the first time all year...

Not a fan of the Pack or the Vikes, but if I was, I wouldn't get to excited about the Vikings' win tonight. I think it had more to do with the statistical unlikelihood of defeating the same 8-8 team 3 times in one season than any superiority over the Pack. The Vikings' D sucks so bad, they wouldn't have had a chance if Favre wasn't tossing the ball straight to a purple jersey all afternoon.

Now if I was a Pack fan, I would be pretty upset right now--you got knocked out by an inferior team. And you had to watch that childish display by Moss. mad.gif

Down to Earth

Gotta offer up Congratulations for the Vikings on the win over the Pack today. Pretty much the same type of game as the first two, except for the 4 interceptions Favre threw. Though to be honest the thing that bugged me most in the game was when Favre didn't put a shoulder down in that run at the end of the half, or at least get the first down and run out of bounds. I think a Favre of a few years ago wouldn't have flip the ball into the endzone. He clearly had to know he was past the line of scrimmage.

Who knows where the Vikes can take it from here. With TO out you never know. Unfortunately they Eagles have a lot better defense than the Packers(that's if you called that a defense). I thought when the Pack made it 24-17, if they would have held on defense the momentum would have carried the Pack to atleast tie the game. Didn't happen. Oh well. Good game by the Vikes and too many mistakes by the Pack. Good luck guys on the rest of the way. I'll be cheering for you.

Now here will be the big Packer question; will Favre come back for next year?

For all the KNOBS who say Culpepper never performs under pressure... The pack makes it 17-24 in the 4th quarter.. what does DC do??? Drives the ball down the field and sticks the dagger in the hearts of 72,000 frozen drunk dimwitted packer fans... OK, maybe their not all dimwitted. I heard he threw 11 TD's and NO interceptions against GB this year! Amazing since every game against the pack is pressure. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      I drive by there 20-30 times per year on my way up north and always wondered what they all said.  Thanks for posting them.  With the warning sign "Danger No Trespass Injury Very Likely" and the barbwire fence around the signs, I would not enter his property if I worked for the US post office or UPS.

      We fished Wednesday afternoon.through Friday out of Zippel. It was not as cloudy as the weatherman predicted. Our best day ended up being Thursday. The two of us in our shack limited out by noon, most were sauger. Hot lure was a 1/8oz glow red shiner Tingler spoon and a plain red hook under a bobber. We were in 26ft

      Landowners can generate revenue by allowing public hunting on their private land in 46 Minnesota counties through the Department of Natural Resources Walk-In Access Program. Sign-ups are Monday, Jan. 22, to Friday, April 27.  “This program is a win-win for landowners and hunters,” said Scott Roemhildt, DNR Walk-In Access coordinator. “And what’s more, by signing up for three years, landowners can qualify for habitat enhancement on their Walk-In Access acres.” For Walk-In Access, eligible parcels must be at least 40 acres and covered by high quality natural vegetation. Landowners are paid by the acre to allow hunting access from Sept. 1 to May 31. Bonuses are paid on parcels that enroll in a three-year contract, are more than 140 acres and are located near a state wildlife management area or federal waterfowl production area. “This may be an opportune time for landowners to sign up for this program because there is some uncertainty about how it will be funded in the 2018 Farm Bill,” Roemhildt said. In a change this year, landowners who enroll in a three-year contract also may qualify for up to $20,000 in habitat enhancements on their land for prescribed burning, removing invasive trees and brush, or planting native species. Walk-In Access parcels are for public hunting only and no motorized vehicles are allowed on conservation land. Bright yellow-green signs identify area boundaries and parking is along roads or in designated parking areas. Recreational use laws provide extra liability protection for acres enrolled in Walk-In Access. Walk-In Access began in 2011 and has grown to more than 26,700 acres in 2017. The program is currently funded through 2018 with a three-year grant from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, under number 69-3A75-16-509. Other funding comes through a surcharge on nonresident hunting licenses, a one-time appropriation from the Minnesota Legislature in 2012 and donations from hunters. Landowners should contact their local soil and water conservation district office for enrollment information. Details can be found at mndnr.gov/walkin. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Yea, the guys having issues with the k-drill/fuel combo are not claring out their ice shavings enough. I have had 0 issues with binding or overheating.  Have been drilling through ice that comes up to the foam the last three days.

      Possibly coming up in the next upcoming weekends. Is there any good areas this year that’s producing a decent bit I’ve heard it’s been pretty slow so far? I know last year there was a good crappie bite in halverston bay but ended up sticking close to the resort and got a few gills. Looking for eyes and crappies if no real good bite thinking of heading to the southwest and trying the gull area. Thanks

      I took those pictures probably seven or eight years ago. If I remember correctly I was heading up north solo, and decided like many others that I'd never fully read the spectacle and would capture it for posterity. I've never met or seen the guy, but I'm sure it would be an interesting time if you drank a few cold ones together. Speaking of Cotton, does anyone have a report on the El Toro lounge? I've always meant to stop in there but have yet to do so.

      Losing Sue is a great loss to the lake community and all of those that had a chance to interact with her. My young daughter has had to deal with a few close losses in our family this year/winter already, so she will be really sad to find out next spring that her favorite "ice cream lady' is no longer with us as well. Sue and Ron were always part of the experience of coming up north. Like many others I'm sure, my wife got corner by Sue last summer about how we needed to buy Moosebirds! I'll miss seeing Sue's smile each time we walk in the door to pick up some random forgotten item, for ice cream, or to find something "Moosebirds" to take home and support a good friend.

      Not sure how everyone else is drilling their holes with the k drill, but I have the 8" on a clam drill plate with the M18 fuel drill and don't have any problems with the drill overheating or the bit not cutting.  In 20" of ice, I clear the shavings 2 or 3 times during the cutting process and the drill cuts like a hot knife through butter.  Instructions on the k drill float are pretty clear that you should clear the shavings to prevent the drill from binding when cutting in thick ice.  Love my k drill!
