Get rid of Jackson


Ely Lake Expert

Recommended Posts

I know its only halftime and its early in the season and he is young, but I am sick of Tavaris Jackson missing short throws to wide open receivers for what could be big plays. There were several throws in the first half of this game that I could of easily completed and I'm built like a lineman. Jackson is making me with we still had Cullpepper. Maybe they can get Randall Cunningham or Brad Johnson to come back. I would like to see them bench Jackson and put Holcomb or even Brooks Bollinger into the game. They should be winning this game, but not with the ugliness we are seeing at QB. It's frusterating to watch. Rant over. Now you have my opinion.

I'm sick of him missing those throws when he's wide open to run 5 yards for the 1st down, yet he forces a throw into a receiver 2' away from him. Frustrating. Run Tavaris! Run! grin.gif

His receivers didn't help him out a couple of times either. At least 3 balls that should have been caught.

Like when he drilled Williamson in the numbers early on in the game. Cripes man! He did redeam himself with that "I can't believe he caught that!" touchdown but you still have to catch those short ones.

What are you talking about it's just a "rebuilding year"....for pack of years. Of course you wonder if they would have taken Quinn in the first round instead of All Day what would have happened.....I guess if our record holds we should have about the #5-7 pick again this season.

I think its too soon to put Jackson out to pasture. Give him the year and see how it goes. No picks thats impressive.

He is a rookie and you expect him to be the next Tom Brady? Get real, it won't happen. Jackson needs atleast another full season to become a good QB, which I believe we have that time, since the vikings are rebuilding, atleast on offense. Why would we waste our time with putting in journeymen like Holcomb and Bollinger?

Just sit back and enjoy Adrian Peterson.

I think someone had suggested earlier that they should just hike the ball directly to Adrian Peterson. That may be a strategy that would pan out better grin.gif

I can't totally blame T-Jack. Throwing to the likes of Butterfingers Williamson doesn't help his stats much. Look on the bright side, when T-Jack guns 'em into the turf they can't be intercepted grin.gif

Just a note on the Vikes QB's this year compared to other QB's at college and pro levels.... Jackson and the Holcomb take way too much time getting from center back into the pocket. It really is noticable if you look at it. Check out Romo and how fast he gets back into a pocket on passing plays. Jackson needs to get back faster for himself to have more time to look for a open receiver. The game Jackson got really beat up in (lions I think) it was unreal how long it took for him to get back into a comfortable passing position.-- and he got beat up pretty bad.

Just something I have seen,

Mud

      Someone is always catching them somewhere but so far this week that someone is not me. Still a few ideas to try but running out quickly

      On the south end...   Summer fishing is prime time right now up at Lake of the Woods.  Good numbers of walleyes being caught.  A nice variety of sizes, which bodes well for the fishery.  Small fish, eaters, slot fish which must be released (19.5 - 28.0 inches) and trophy walleyes over 28 inches all in the mix.     The mud is holding big numbers of fish and two main fishing techniques are being used to get it done. The first technique is drifting or trolling crawler harnesses.  Using a two ounce bottom bouncer and a two snelled spinner will do the trick.  Best spinner colors have been gold, gold/pink, orange/chartreuse.     Making sure your weight is near the bottom, but not dragging the bottom is key.  Try to maintain a 45 degree angle and make sure the spinner is spinning, normally 1.0 - 1.3 mph.  Walleyes will load up, almost feeling like you are dragging a wet sock.  A good feeling!   The second technique catching good numbers of walleyes is trolling crankbaits over the mud basin.  To get crankbaits down to schools of fish normally in that 28 - 32' range, lead core line, snap weights, downriggers and even a 4 ounce bottom bouncer with 6' mono or fluorocarbon leader with shallow diving crankbait will work well.   Most popular depths on the mud are 30'-36' of water over the mud basin.  Not every walleye in the lake is focusing on the same forage base.  There has also been success in that 12-20' range over sand and even shallower along shore.     Reefs can be their own ecosystem and can always hold fish.  Fish can be on top, sides, on the rock to mud transition or even adjacent to reef out in the mud.  Go fishing, watch electronics. On the Rainy River...  With drier weather, the flow of water is decreasing on the Rainy River.  Water clarity has improved and so has fishing.     Most are targeting the edges of the main current where water is slower moving.  Points, bridges, underwater structure, docks and bends in the river can all change current flow, creating good spots for fish to live. Jigs, spinners and crankbaits are all catching fish.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River with literally thousands of fun spots to fish. The sturgeon season is open.  Some nice fish were caught this week.  Anchor up on a hole or adjacent to a hole in the river and soak some nightcrawlers.  Local tackle shops have flat no roll sinkers and sturgeon rigs.     There is a big population of smallmouth bass in the Rainy River.  Although they don't receive much attention due to walleyes, they are abundant. Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing is the rule of thumb using three techniques, jigging, trolling spinners and trolling crankbaits.     Reports of walleyes sliding deeper off of structure.  If fishing a "spot on a spot", jigging is the preferred method.  If fish are spread out or you are searching a flat, spinners and crankbaits will cover more water and walleyes are normally cooperative.   Some big pike caught again this week.  These predators are often hanging around schools of walleyes and saugers, but rocky points, bays and sunken islands are great spots as well. Muskie anglers continue reporting good success fishing a variety of structure amongst the islands.

      CFD200, Nice Fish!  are you on the east or west side of Vermilion?
    • monstermoose78
      Just have been busy and I will work ok a report tonight. 
    • CFD200
      We had difficulty finding any walleyes this weekend.  The previous two weekends I marked a lot of fish with few takers.  Didn't  mark many this weekend but, caught this 24" mark.

      Fish cleaning shack has been pretty quiet at pike bay resort last 2 days. Been on several spots on big bay with little success.  Family wants to lose their $$ at casino today.  Hopefully get out later today. Good luck and keep posting.  
    • FishinCT
      Any recent info out of vermilion? Coming up for next 4 days and will report back as well. Haven’t fished in the summer up there for a long time
    • Dash 1
      74 in big bay this morning.  Now I just need to find the fish.

      Blame you?  You needed it there and I knew you couldn’t change your, um, *stretch?* time.
    • smurfy
      🤣🤔 I can't believe you didn't try blaming me.   It's been a while since I stopped there... to check the landing  🤭
