2005 schedule released

13 posts in this topic

As exemplified by the four primetime night appearances, Brett Favre and the Packers are one of the biggest television drawing cards in the NFL today. Along those lines, eight of the final nine games on the Green Bay schedule in 2005 will be broadcast nationally. For those reasons, just five of the team's 16 games will have kick off at noon (CT) on a Sunday.

Isn't that the truth, atleast the NFL know who draws the bigger audiance.

Everyone likes to see celebs fall on their faces. As you said it is a big draw.

I know KFAN has been talking about the schedule on PA & Dubay. I think NFL.com is releasing it at 1pm. I haven't seen anything hard copy though.

Schedule is on nfl.com now. I think I see GB at 7-9, Chicago at 7-9, Detroit at 8-8 and Vikes at 10-6 (trying to be unbiased as I did this). Long way to go before the season though and the teams may change. The key for both our teams is how far have the Bears and Lions have come along.

Oh great!!! Da Bears come to town in the last game of the year to knock the Vikes out of the playoffs. Of course, Da Bears were eliminated about 4 weeks prior to this.

What I wanna know, is the Vikes have been signing all these players this offseason more than anyone else and they only play 1 MN game, only 1, what a slap in the face to the Vikes organization. Guess they know they are going to be same same Vikes as years past.

I thought I recall hearing one time a few years back, that in order to be on Monday Night Football a team had to have a winning record the prior year. I don't know if they still do that or not. Someone correct me on that if I'm wrong. My guess is if the Vikes have the success that is predicted for them this year, next year you will see more Monday nighters scheduled.

Yes, the Vikes seemed to have improved on paper but they also traded their best national TV draw. Like it or not, Farve has become a media golden boy.

More than likely to happen as we all have come to accept but I will still take it when you are laughing at us after your boys have already had a couple of rounds of golf in from a early dispatching at the hands of the purple. wink.gif

It should be a interesting season. Bears and Lions on the rise, Vikes upgrading a pathetic D, and the Pack struggling with the cap to stay on top. It is going to be a long wait for the opener.

Ah by the middle of the season the networks will be regretting the fact that they have too put the subpar pack on national TV. I dont think even god, i mean Favre can save that sinking ship.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      Yeah I like decoys this thread used have some on here. I will try to hit a show Thank you

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff
