Doss

10 posts in this topic

I don't know much about the guy, he might be a great addition to the team, but don't you thing we have enough safeties on the team? Do you think they are setting up for a trade or something?

Before we signed Doss every mock had us taking Landry(safety.LSU). I think that we signed Doss so we can trade down several spots and pick up an extra pick from whomever we trade with. I think our team has too many needs for us to trade up because it would cost us too many picks. If we trade down 5 spots we can pick up an extra late second or third round pick.

There are a lot of trade rumors going on right now with the Vikings. Some say we'll trade our pick to NE for their two first round picks. That way NE can get Landry and we can address the wr and db positions in the first round. Probably not going to happen though. Another rumor is trading with Buffalo and getting their first and second round picks. Buffalo is interested in AP. Will it happen? Only God knows. Nobody can predict the NFL draft.

Why wouldn't a guy want to return to a Super Bowl-winning team? Something's not right.

He had an ACL problem last year and missed a bunch of games , maybe him leaving wasn't an option . On the other hand , did anybody hear Sludge & Hawk interview B-Wade this morning . Sounds like a good guy and has his head in the right spot . Says he is a Hines Ward type of reciever . Was honest about his short commings , which is nice for a change . Lastly , won't Doss have to fight for a spot ?

They better be sure about Doss if this means they are trading down or passing on Landry. All accounts are this guy is one of the best safeties to come out in the past few years.

They signed Doss for one million for one year. It's probably just a competition thing because that's what Childress likes. It could just be a smokescreen or a move to get someone to trade up to our pick to get Landry. I wouldn't mind having Landry in purple.

You have Tank Williams coming back this year too. I dont think safety is one of the top 2 needs for this team.

Wonder if any of them might be tried at cornerback. I think our nickel and dime coverages should have some good players in the game with this kind of depth. One could play up on the line to cover the short stuff or blitz.

I don't mind this pickup at all. Greg Blue, shoulder, Rondell Whitiker, arm, and Tank Williams knee .. still might have some problems. This is a move for depth, he held his starting job for 4 years before getting hurt last year. I hear he's a hard hitter, but could be a little better in pass coverage. Unless they guarenteed his contract,They could still cut him before the start of next season if his knee is too messed up still. nothing lost.

I personally like this move. Mike Doss was a beast when he played at THE Ohio State.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.
