Vikes Win!!!


Shack

Recommended Posts

Can you believe that!!!!!

I know, I know! I said I would not watch nother Vikes game this year! I watched the last half of the forth quarter. I was up and I was down and then a long field goal. Peterson and Jackson seem to work!

Go Vikes!

That was sweet even though they tried to give it away at the end. A win is a win an AP is amazing.

I am a little skepy on Jackson, but Peterson is a holder!

We won a game, cool! I thought for sure we would loose!

Gives a little skip while doing my house work today in the rain!

Setting up stuff for our yearly haunted house and also getting some boxes of hunting stuff down fom garage attic!

Cool!

If you're a Bears fan, that must really suck to lose to a team that sucks. grin.gif Thank you AP.

WILLIAMSON GOT HIS FIRST TOUCHDOWN IN 2 YEARS!!!!!!!

WOOOHOOOO,

I kinda wish that they would have lost.

With this win, it gives them false hope. They don't have a QB to get them to a wildcard birth so I think that they should start shooting for draft position blush.gif

They are a Quaterback and a WR away from a division title.

I confess, I had totally forgotten about Vikes game and caught the tail end when going in for a beer from going thought hunting stuff I just brought down from garage attic!

If it had not been raining today, I would of been hunting.

Like next Sunday!

There was a little sarcasium in me starting this thread, but I am a Vikes fan and a win is a win!

Its a great day when your buddy who organized the Sunday football party is a Bear's fan (and he's not even from Chicago! Seams like most aren't), and they took it up the goalposts at the end. grin.gif

Peterson looked great! Thank You Childress for allowing him to carry the ball in the 4th Quarter!

If it wasn't for Hester we would have won by 17 points. And, how did the refs miss the HUGE block in the block right at the point of attack on that kick return for a TD.

AP is a stud!

It wasn't even close to an illegal block he hit him directly from the side with his helmut on the front of the player being blocked he then turned his back which would leave a person to believe it was illegal.

Clean block all the way text book...and another return by the best ever.

I agree AD "not ap" is a stud.

Cool hadn't heard his nickname. How did he get All Day when until this week he only played half game? grin.gif.

Looked like his head was his side to me. I dont know how a guy can come from behind a player and throw a block in front him.

I watched it again last night on MNF and had it on my DVR so I could rewind and rewatch. There was definitely no turning after frontal contact, and the guy was never in front, his head was off to the side which might have made it look that way, but he came from straight behind him and hit him square in the back. CLEAR BLOCK IN THE BLACK.

Shoulder pad too shoulder pad head in front textbook block.

They even broke it down on ESPN.....

I understand looking at in full speed it may appear to be a bad block buts its a call you will never get.

Peterson is great, but, well, he still isnt starting! Chester is still seeing more carries, which means, more opportunities for Chester as well...

What a day for AD. What also was huge was Jackson not making any critical errors, and the O line playing theyre best game of the year against a great D.

Way to go Vikes. Still want Childdddy gone!!

Illegal block or not VIKES WIN. I was superised that when Jackson didnt see anything open he threw it at AP's feet instead of making a bad decision and try to make something happen.

There were a few times he could have lowerd his shoulder to pick up the first down easily! But its rookie mistakes, he will get better, he has already, just like any other rookie qb, they just need time!

Peiere, you don't get it. Any call that goes against the queens is a bad call. In reality, the vikes haven't even really lost a game this year, two wins and 3 games the refs lost for the queens. 5-0. Great job Vikes!!

Why dont you find us a 5 second clip of the "non-fumble" in the packer game and demonstrate how that was a good call too. That block may have been good. Look at the picture all you want but its not a call that you will never get as you stated. The packer play wasnt good. Its not blaming the refs for a loss. Its just asking not too get hosed and have a TD taken away in a 7 point game in the 4th quarter.

      they have been great!  Provide more stability and floatation to the rear of the boat where it was needed with my 230lb frame with the motor back there.  They also make the boat look pretty "mean" for a small little jon boat   The only downside to them is now I have to figure out a trolling motor since I cant put one off the rear, and I have to get creative to mount a transducer.  Currenly i just suction cup a vexilar transducer to the side of the boat. I am planning on adding a motorguide kayak 36" shaft trolling motor to the bow.  I just need some welding on the front, but I have to customize it so the boat still can fit on my trailer properly, as I have bumpers that create a little logistical snafu.

      Looks like you got it set up pretty nice with comfy seats. How did the rear floats you added work?

      Just thought I would provide an update....the river is high and fast.  I have been down there multiple times during the course of the year and the fishing has been poor with water moving so fast.  I have tried 3oz weights and they tumble like nothing down the river.  Have not attempted to launch the boat out there.  I have been on the Rum a bit with the boat and that is a fun navigational voyage!  Not a lot of fish caught but some.  Regarding my boat set up, I did upgrade the 4hp up to a 6hp.  has just enough power to go where I need with a passenger.  next step is to weld up something to mount a bow mount trolling motor and I will have a solid fishing machine for small lakes and rivers. Hope everyone is out there enjoying our summertime open water!!

    • FishinCT
      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.
