Bobby Wade

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...

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
