What's up with Winfield??

8 posts in this topic

I sure hope that he isn't looking for a trade. He is one of the bright spots on the defense.

What happened with Winfield? If he leaves it would really be a loss. He was one of the reason the run defense was so great. TO me he is are best player on Defence. He is paid to cover WR and yet makes more tackles then are LB's. Put him on the front line and he would probably lead the team in Sacks smile.gif. He is an example of what a football player should be. Not that he is the best CB in the league but I would take him over anyone besides Champ.

I agree. And I think he is one of the best CB's in the league. I really hope that he shows up for the mini-camp on the June 1st and that this is a non-issue, I would really hate to see us loose a veteran player with his kind of talent and leadership abilty.

By the way, I have met him down in Fankato for training camp. He is also a player that isn't stuck on himself, he stuck around and signed every little kids ball, jersey, or card that they had. I have a lot of respect for a player like that.

Sports Media types need something to either write about or talk about, it's their job. I am going to wait until HE says something about the situation. According to his agent he plans on being here for the June 1st mini-camp. I know one thing, I sure do enjoy watching him play football.

I agree! With nothing to talk about but Ron Mexico and his pittbull fighting ring, the media is jumping on any little thing that goes on.

One of the reasons I think he's the mvp of our defense is his character. So far he has shown us nothing but good things on and off the field. And I expect nothing less this comming season.

He'll show his true colors this year with a hold-out for more money.

Winfield was at minicamp for this mornings practice and when interviewed after, said that he is not looking for a trade. I think he is just upset with the direction that the team is going. But I think he's just like every player, he just wants to win and the team is going through some re-building. I guess he and Chilly had a heart to heart yesterday and got everything out on the table. He's a professional, and like I said before, a real stand up guy, and a team player.....he won't let his team or fans down.

      It is a bad idea.  It can spread disease and invasive species.   Don't do it.     Besides, the minnows swim away and within a short time are dispersed so the fish wouldn't see them as a big attraction.

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.
