Not sure if he'll end up anywhere....I'm reading rumors that he may not be ready to play until late in the 2007 season at best. Atlanta is going to need someone to step in this week.

Fumblepepper will have alot of trouble finding a team. I can't see any team giving him over a min. vet contract.

Daunte is getting what he deserves. He acted like a fool his last year in Minnesota and basically abondoned the team once he went down to injury. He wouldn't work or even show up in Minnesota once a new coach was hired and demanded to be traded. He has been and continues to represent himself as player/agent and I hope he finds his way to the unemployment line this fall. What comes around goes around.

No kidding Mark . Remember when Pep would have been MVP if Manning hadn't had such an off the hook year . People forget that for the 1st 5 years he played statistically no one throughout history was better . Marino led in ONE catagory but Culpepper was better than Favre , Montana , Young , Unitas - everybody . Its a shame and I have always kind of felt that it was more Mrs. Culpepper who wanted out of MN. after the boat thing due to the way that the fans ( loosly stated ) would have treated the Culpepper family . I don't blame him for leaving and I , for one , with our present QB situation would like for him to be on our team . Put your hate aside for a minute people and think about who gives the Vikes a better chance to win Culpepper or who ever we'll have under center , as of now , when the season starts ? Don't worry , I'd guess that the Vikings would be his 32nd choice . Atlanta would be lucky to get him .

Daunte is a nimrod and had one spectacular year and I give most of that credit to the rest of the offense.....He fired his agent and has had nothing but problems since!!! He can't hold on to a football and never has been the most accurate of throwers. Now the one thing he did have was his size and mobility and he lost his mobility......Daunte is a cancer to any team that picks him up and everyone knows that. That is why he is still a free agent!!!

He won't be when the season starts and I hope he is on our schedule and comes to the dome and kicks our a$$'s and maybe that will silence you Daunte haters .

One spectacular year... there are statistics that would contradict that. Daunte has a better passer rating than Farve, Brady or McNabb. That would mean that he is a more accurate thrower than those three. His best year for passing yardage is still 300 yards better than Favre's best and 600 yards better than Brady's best. Brady has never had a 30 passing touchdown season, Culpepper had two.

The idea that Daunte was a cancer to any team that had him is really odd seeing as how the last time the Vikes made it to the play-offs he was the quarterback. The last time they made it to the NFC Championship he was the quarteback. Since his departure the team hasn't done well.

I won't argue that he isn't what he once was but having had knee surgery myself I don't think anyone would be.

I hurt my knee last winter on a snowy day in Wal-Mart parking lot.

I have not been the same since.

My hand strength is horrible, I mean, I seem to lose my grip and drop things alot more. My attitude, well, all I can say is since the injury, I really think I am better then the people around me. And to top it off, I quit my job and got fired from another, and I really don't know why. It has to be my knee.

Only 1 reson Dante had those early numbers....Randy Moss. As soon as he had to face defenses that weren't adjusting to try to contain Moss, he folded like a cheap suit. And he's got hands like a little girl...

Folded like a cheap suit ? You might be a great football mind but I think you might have your metaphor confused . You guys that hate Daunte will just hate him . Go ahead . For me he was just a player who sometimes played good and sometimes not so good . Was Montana only good because of Rice ? Marino had the Marks . Saying Daunte was better because of Moss is an excercise in the obvious , Moss could have made anyone look better back then . I used to think that but realized that the whole team had a beakdown without Moss . He was the engine that drove the team and without him there was no confidence , protection wasn't there , WR's wern't getting open , total team breakdown . How many of those fumbles or sacks were coverage sacks or how many of those fumbles came due to crappy blocking . I'm not saying that Daunte doesn't deserve some of the blame but to hold him wholly responsible is wrong . QB's get to much credit for winning and take to much of the blame for losing .

Daunte plain and simply experienced TOO much success in his early days. Most can be attributed to the surrounding talent around him (Moss, Carter, and Smith). To compare Daunte to Favre and Brady is just plain foolish. Take the talent surrounding Daunte in his first few years away and you get the same Q-Back as you saw when they had few if any weapons. I'm not a Daunte basher either---he's simply getting what he desrves.

I do not think people hate Daunte they are simply stating his faults. He made his own bed by being so demanding. Why do you think the Dolpins dropped him so quickly. Remember the Dolphins had to make good on his $10million contract bonus last spring. Truth is Daunte's career may be over because he cannot perform at the level prior to the knee injury. Bring back Fran!!!

And you are a Viking fan? Bwahahahahahaha. If Daunte lands on another NFL team, you should cheer for his new squad.

I keep hearing people say that Daunte was only good because of Moss. Couldn't a case be made for the reverse as well? How did things go in Oakland for Mr. Moss?

I think it's obvious that they helped each other. It's not so one sided as many people make it seem.

See what you missed is that I said knee surgery... an injury bad enough to require surgery... not a little boo boo from slipping in the parking lot at Wally World because you aren't coordinated enough to walk. There is a big difference. But after your response I am sure an event as insignificant as that to most would be enough of an impact to you that you were unable to fully recover. Good luck getting back into the game.

      Hey there, i'm new to the forum and very passionate about bass fishing! I'm from the saint cloud, MN area and i'm looking for good bass fishing locations? I prefer to fish ponds and lakes and im definitely willing to travel. Anyone willing to share a few spots? 
    • FishandFowl
      Thanks guy's. Good to be back. Sometimes life just keeps you busy. Didn't pulverize it just not ideal connection. Nothing a little Hickory smoke and some Cajun Spices won't cure. Here is a pair a friend of mine and I got a few years back. Lucky day to score 2 Toms in the same morning! Heading out tomorrow for some Walleye's hoping it goes well.   Thanks, Greg

      i cant narrow it down, just ordered a new regulator  and hose assembly instead; cant find replacement hoses locally anyhow that i could test out
    • SkolVikingsGuy
      Wondering if this coming Memorial Day weekend would be a good weekend to come up or if the fishing is slow?  Would love to have the kids catch some easy walleye if possible.

      Got a reply from the DNR to my last question, which included a reference to tournaments. She forwarded my question to another and I'm still waiting for that reply.

      A region-wide effort to better understand West Nile virus in ruffed grouse is getting underway in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.  “In the Great Lakes region, West Nile virus has been found in a small number of grouse with no known population-level effects at this point,” said Charlotte Roy, grouse project leader with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “Still, we want to let hunters know we’re in the first steps of monitoring the virus, and we’re planning to do some limited testing of birds this fall.” In 2017, West Nile virus was identified in more ruffed grouse in the Great Lakes states than in the past. The virus has been present in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin for about 17 years. West Nile virus has been documented in more than 250 species of birds; however, not all birds develop clinical disease from the virus. Corvids (including blue jays and crows) are very prone to illness and death from the virus, while other species may be less so or may not develop symptoms at all. Last year, Michigan had 12 positive cases of West Nile virus in ruffed grouse. Prior to 2017, only one positive ruffed grouse had been found in Michigan, and that was in 2002. The virus was confirmed in one ruffed grouse in the early 2000s in Minnesota, and is yet to have been detected in a Wisconsin ruffed grouse. West Nile virus in ruffed grouse has become a topic of concern because of a recent study in Pennsylvania reporting that the virus may have contributed to population declines in areas of lower-quality habitat or where habitat was scarce. Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin are in the early stages of planning to test samples from grouse this fall but at this point there is no evidence that the virus is having a population-level impact in the Great Lakes region. “By monitoring birds at a regional level, we will be able to gain a better understanding of this disease in ruffed grouse,” said Kelly Straka, state wildlife veterinarian with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Ruffed grouse are hunted annually by around 300,000 hunters across the three states. Preliminary reports from 2017 hunters were mixed across the Great Lakes region. While the virus could impact brood survival of grouse, other factors such as cold, wet springs during nesting and hatching; drought conditions; or habitat decline can also affect birds seen and harvested. Biologists in the region are optimistic that the great habitat for ruffed grouse in the Great Lakes states will help populations thrive despite the virus. “We are looking to hunters and outdoor enthusiasts to help us in this endeavor,” said Mark Witecha, upland wildlife ecologist with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. “This is an excellent example of agencies and organizations taking a proactive approach and working together to expand our knowledge about WNV and ruffed grouse.” Recently, the Midwest Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies Health Committee held its annual meeting in Traverse City, Michigan. West Nile virus was one of the topics for state wildlife health leaders. More than 25 wildlife health professionals from 13 Midwestern states and Canada were in attendance. Individual agencies are currently reviewing ways they will be monitoring their grouse populations for West Nile virus, and additional information will be shared when more details are determined. Like humans, wild animals can be exposed to West Nile virus and survive the exposure. Currently, there is no evidence of humans becoming infected by consuming properly cooked birds or by handling birds. Research has shown dogs can be infected but are very resistant to developing clinical signs of the disease and are considered an end host. Ruffed grouse hunting is open in the fall and Minnesota hunting information can be found at mndnr.gov/hunting/grouse. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Isn't that something how they don't recognize the blind as a problem?  I've had turkeys walk literally right next to it too.  Nice bird FishandFowl, hope you didn't pulverize it too bad.

      An angler from Stillwater has set a new record for lake sturgeon in the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ catch-and-release category.  Jack Burke and fishing buddy Michael Orgas were recently on a lake sturgeon fishing trip to remember. Fishing on the Rainy River in Koochiching County, the duo was having a lot of success fishing for Minnesota’s biggest fish, landing 20 fish in three days including six lake sturgeon over 60 inches before hooking into the new state record – a 73-inch long lake sturgeon. “We had been having some great action and knew there were big fish in the Rainy River,” Burke said. “This particular fish took about 45 minutes to reel in. When we got it closer to the boat it blew some bubbles and came to the top; I knew it was a huge fish!” Burke caught the fish on May 4, around 11 a.m. using a muskie rod supplied by his fishing partner Orgas, with 80-pound braided line rigged with a circle hook and crawlers. The fish measures 73 inches in length and 30 inches in girth. This beats the previous record by 3 inches that was set by two separate anglers who both boated 70-inch fish on the same day in April 2017. There are two kinds of Minnesota state records: one for catching and keeping the biggest fish in each species based on certified weight; and the other for the length of a caught and released muskellunge, northern pike, lake sturgeon or flathead catfish. The DNR announces new state records in news releases, on social media and on the DNR website. Find current records and guidelines for each type of state record at mndnr.gov/recordfish.
