Bobby Wade

14 posts in this topic

Great, just what we need, another receiver with a case of the dropsies. Wasn't he run out of Chicago for having the same problem as Mr Williamson? Or was it that he could catch it, but not hold on to it? I can't believe that they would take a chance on a guy that. confused.gif PLEASE prove me wrong Chily

Who else are we suppose to sign?? This year's FA corps is not that talented, and right now the most talented players and big name players are getting snatched up. Why do you think New England signed/traded two '07 draft picks for RFA WR Wes Welker of the Dolphins, because this year WR free agents is not very talented period. I am just happy we got someone at least, who has upside, are we suppose to bring back Travis Taylor or sign a problem player like Donte Stallworth? The other decent free agent WR this offseason are Stallworth, Quincy Morgan, Justin Gage, Corey Bradford, Travis Taylor, Bobby Engram, Az-Zahir Hakim, Troy Brown, and Andre Davis. Not much to pick from, so Bobby Wade looks alright right now because of his upside and young age. Why do you think WR like Ashley Lelie and Dennis Northcutt got snatched up right away, because of lack of talent out there this offseason at the WR position. At least Kevin Curtis hasn't signed with anyone yet, and we might have a shot at him when he hires another agent.

What the vikes need to do is figure out what they will do in the draft if its worth trading up to get a Calvin Johnson, or trade down and pick up a few picks and draft a Dwayne Jarrett or Robert Meacham type WR, who both are big guys and pretty fast for their size. The vikes also need to look at adding depth at corner and linebacker, now that Smoot and Nap Harris are gone, we need to find a true Mikebacker (middlelinebacker) Randall Godfrey, Donnie Edwards?? Also I do not know who the heck this TE who came from the Giants is, but there are some decent TE too look at in the draft and in FA (Doug Jolley, Jermey Stevens)

I just think that they should surround Jackson with people he can count on. The last thing he needs is to go into the season already doubting the reliability of the receivers. Maybe they should have pursued someone like Horn early on for his leadership. His old, but he has qualities needed for developing someone like Jackson. Honestly, I hope I'm wrong about this guy!

Childress is an (Contact Us Please). First he releases the only decent receiver on the team(M. Robinson). Then when they have no one left to catch the ball, he doesn't use Wiggins in an offense that is supposed to rely heavily on the TE. He then doesn't bother to resign Wiggins, apparently because he had someone called V. Shiancoe up his sleeve. Follow that with the signing of V. Ciurciu and the future Hall of Famer, Bobby Wade! Shear genius! I haven't checked with Vegas, but the Vikes must be the odds on favorite to win next year's Super Bowl.

To look on the bright side, at least with the current management and coaching staff I am not even slightly tempted to leave the woods to catch the game.

I wonder if the two "Chili" impersonators from the Vikes home games this year have burned their disguises yet...???

When Ryan Longwell threw a TD pass I really thought the guy was gonna be creative.

Then we dumped the ball off on every down we didn't run it, and I thought I was eating Vanilla wafers dipped in skim milk.

Yep.

Chili gives me gas.

I dont mind signing Bobby Wade, but the price? Since when is a 3rd or 4th receiver from a couple of average teams worth 3 million a year? That is a joke.

Guys the good news is with the lack of improvement being made by the Vikes, Chili will not last out the season...

      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.

      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.

      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

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
