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.

      Only 39 degrees in the Pike River mouth yesterday! That is usually warmer then the main lake. Cliff

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
