Who wants Schaub now????

7 posts in this topic

With Jackson making a good impression this preseason does anyone want the team to still go after Matt Schaub in the off season or let it roll with Tarvaris Jackson??

Lets let the kid play things out a little before we label him our savior. I was happy when they drafted him, I assumed they must have seen something in him.

Schaub would have been a guy who could come in right away and play so there is a difference between him and Jackson but I am pleased with how things have been handled thus far. Right now I am such a Twins junkie that I really haven't cared as much about the vikes as I normally do.

Jackson has made such an impression already on the league, he's of high value.

Let's trade him to Oakland for Randy Moss and Jerry Porter plus a 2nd drafy pick.

Or.. maybe we could trade with Seattle for Alexander and Hasselbeck? They should do that, yeah!

Who besides Oakland would want 2 disgruntled recievers like Moss and Porter?

Thats just what we need on this team.

Its always funny how high a players value can get in fans eyes even before he takes a snap in a regular season game.

It's not just that he hasn't taken a snap in a regular season game, we haven't seen him play against 1st team defenses either.

If you remember 1 year ago it looked like Daunte was going to be MVP of the league after his preseason performances and we all know how that ended up.

1 thing is for sure though, it's nice to at least see some potential in a future QB in Minnesota then what the Vikes situation was looking like before the draft.

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400.
