Already Looking Forward

7 posts in this topic

Obviously there isn't a whole lot of choices for the Vikes this year at QB, but looking forward to the draft and next year....what do the Vikes draft picks look like for the first round? Is there any way the Vikes could put themselves in a position to get a QB in the draft? And, is there a QB you guys think would be worth getting out of the draft (Smith, Quinn, Henne)???

I haven't thrown in the towel just yet on this season, but I also believe it's obvious the Vikes should be planning for the future for the QB position.

Thoughts?

isn't that why the Vikes drafted Jackson, the QB of the future??

Yes, and the coaching staff has him right where he should be, riding the pine with a clipboard in his hand. Watch and learn kiddo is what they are telling him

Next year should be a different story but don't ruin the kid by putting him in a situition tailor made for failure.

Jackson has been hurt as well, he couldn't have played if they wanted him to. I know he missed atleast a month after needing some minor surgery. There is no way he would be ready this year after missing that much practice time.

Don't forget about Matt Schaub being a free agent... with Vick playing great FB this season chances of the Fancons paying a backup alot of dough go out the window...

My bet is the Vikes will make a strong push for Schaub this off-season and have Jackson inked in as the back-up. #3 QB could be anyone and even someone they pick up later in the draft. Vikes have a good team right now and are in desperate need of a good playmaker at both QB and receiver. If they can fill these holes somehow it might get interesting.

Jackson seemed to have a decent pre-season. What's wrong with him right now? Is he the QB of the future for the Vikes?

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
