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.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.
