Todd Bouman

Just signed with Jacksonville. Why don't we get this guy back in his home-state wearing purple and gold? He certainly would be no less of a QB than T-Jack and Holcomb at this point in their careers.

Makes me wonder.. how many other QB's are out there, similar to Bouman, that would be a step up from what's wearing the purple.

Ah, well, maybe I'm overstating Bouman's capabilities. But even so, do you see my point? I mean... T-Jack has the worst QB rating of all the starting QB's in the league, and worse than several backups too. There's got to be a QB somewhere that can pull out a few wins for the purple and gold.

It'd be counter-productive, I know. T-Jack needs experience and won't get it sitting the bench. That's the theory righ tnow, anyways. However, I think a couple years on the bench will actually help him develop. Then maybe next time his number is called to be the starter, he would be much more capable.

Frustrating year. Probably a frustrating couple (three, four, five....) of years. crazy.gif

Wasn't that the guy who got into trouble at a charity Vikings snowmobile ride at Mille Lacs?

I thought he was coaching football. I think his brother is AD there. Nepotism rules.

I'm wondering why Chris Weinke didn't get a sniff in Charlotte. I read he was hanging around there just in case.

Yeah Bouman was the QB coach at Buffalo. It sounded like a lot of the kids liked him.

At this point, I'd even take Ryan Leif. Childress is too stubborn to make any intelligent moves at this point. Both Culpepper and Johnson would've been better than Jackson this year.

The way the queens season is going they should have a good draft pick this year. There are 4 QB's that would be head and shoulders above TJack.

The AD in Buffalo doesn't even spell his name the same way (A instead of O). Todd has two older brothers, one of whom is head football coach in Pipestone and the other was head girls softball coach at SDSU until he got canned last year and I don't know where he is now. Ignorance is bliss, but you have to know enough to be quiet to enjoy it!!!

I've known the Bouman boys since we were kids and played on traveling baseball teams with them when we were young. Todd always had great skills, but he was a cocky cocky kid. He has been a serviceable backup QB in the NFL and could probably do as well as our other QB's, but he's not the answer to our problems.

Baseball teams? Didn't know they played baseball. I used to watch them play fastpitch every weekend when I was younger. Shane was the big wheel, Troy was a speed demon, and Todd was just a solid all-around player.

I think Shane is coaching softball at UNI these days.

Cocky? Technical fouls and ejections for hanging on the rim in high school b-ball games comes to mind... grin.gif

Baseball in the summers before they were old enough to play fastpitch softball...Probably like when Troy and I would have been in 6th or maybe 7th-8th grade(we are the same age-Todd two years younger, Shane two older)? I don't remember exactly when, it was like a million years ago now.

Speaking of quarterbacks, the queens are down to one healthy qb. I seen rumors, of George coming back, Pennington. Will the Vikes pick up someone? Or hope that Bollinger doesnt get injured, then it will be back to T-jack. They need to do something.

Well it looks like T-jack is going to start the game this weekend, get ready for the best game of his career! 9-15 for 155 yds, 1 td smirk.gif

Well, at least we didn't resort to signing Vinny Testaverde before another poor team was desperate enough to sign him. He looked decent on the first drive, but it fell apart after that. I have a feeling Quinn will be available at seasons end, Anderson looks good, and I am sure Brady will get sick of standing on the sidelines and will ask to be opted out of his contract

I thought I heard on the radio the other day, that if worse came to worse, Darren Sharper could be put in at QB?. unless I misunderstood the conversation. Did he play QB in college or anything like that?

Then who would we replace him with on defense? Well we could play it like 9man high school grin.gif I hope it doesnt end up like that! There just isnt much out there to be had, the Vikings will just need to dig in their pockets next season and pick up a good veteran.

Sharper could do the "Iron Man" thing. It'd be pretty sweet to see him lay the wood on someone trying to sack him though.

I would rather see Joe Namath using a walker lined up behind center than any quarterback on the current roster.

I'm afraid to say it, but how much you want to bet in the next NFL draft, the Vikes, well knowing how pathethic our QB situation is, will do something stupid in the first round, like pick another lineman, or a stone handed receiver, or someone from an unknown school who "has future potential"

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On! 
    • monstermoose78
      Well monstermoose78 is done ice fishing around here for the year. Why you ask I fell through yes there was 28-30 inches of ice on the lake, but the shoreline nope. Went fishing with @Cret Jigs and we had fun fishing. I cut lots of holes and we got some good ones for the knife. Cret jigs brought a plank for the way out but on the way in I did not make it to the plank. Cret jigs helped me get my stuff the shore and out. I worry about the guy on the wheeler and they guy who used the plank to get out too. Thanks Cret jigs for a fun day.

      To all you guys who’ve been keeping us posted, thank you. I’m an islander so I don’t have much hope for the opener, but I’ve been reading all the posts (read them year around), including entertaining posts on new gear, and, again, thanks for letting a lot of guys know what’s going on there. The current weather, forecast and web cams, give me hope! I’m thinking I may get back home in three weeks, maybe four. Keep the sun shining, Dick

      What a difference a day makes, yesterday the dam was locked up tight and today it's roaring. Walleye should be running this week...
    • IceHawk
      Well this morning was officially the end of the ice season for me.   Its been a lot of days on the ice this winter and I have to admit I'm  a little burnt out.   It wasn't easy but it was time to end it.  Have to admit It was a sad moment putting the gear away but it was time as needed space today to put the boat in the garage   Learned a lot of new water and reacquainted myself with some old standbys. Fished 10 different counties this winter so definitely fished a lot of different areas.  Fished many species on the ice this winter so there never was a dull moment. Didn't take a ton of pics just a few need to take more just have never been a pic type of guy LOL.   Iced 7 walleyes between 26-28 3/4 all on local lakes.  So just a tip if you dedicate some time locally big eyes can be found. Fished panfish everywhere in the state highlight area for big fish being Becker and Ottertail Douglas counties. Biggest gill this winter was 10 3/4    many 10's came topside but couldn't break 11 this winter. Craps 15 inchers were tops. Good fish but had goals set at a 16.  Some things learned this ice season where number one lure for the eyes was a old school hammered silver Swedish pimple. It far out produced anything else.   Kenders tungsten where my mainstay for gills and crappies. The plastics of choice were power bait wishbones,  chigger frys, and Northland impulse mayfly's.  The catfish were a hoot and a  change of pace did well on Maynards slammers Glow red. The equipment and gear I was running and never failed me all season were Thorne Bros Rods- For eyes Perch sweethearts. For the Panfish I was running  Power Noodles, panfish sweethearts,  and my favorite the Tripwire. Reels Pflueger Presidents, Prestige ,and Supremes.. Did use some inlines also from 13 fishing The free falls where worth every penny. Ran a K-Drill 8 inch early and late and During the thick ice Ran my strikemaste Lazer.  Vexilar Electronics the old trusty FL18 my eyes underwater, Please Don't  think that I'm pushing these products because I'm sponsored by them, I'm Not. Just want to give a thumbs up and honest opinion on  some top notch equipment that has worked and weathered the storm of a good hardwater season. Realize we all work hard for our dollars and I can honestly say these products where worth every penny and never let me down!  Well Off to the Garage to start getting the boat ready for the Next season  By the Way big Shout out to some of the best Anglers I had the chance to share the ice with this season from FM.  Thanks  Borch,  Bass Thumb,  Moose,  Eyeguy, Rick G , Tom Sawyer for shareing some ice time with me.  Hopefully I get to meet and fish with a few other FMer's this summer or next hardwater.  We had some great Times great laughs and managed to even ice a few fish   Looking forward to having a few summer outings in the future.  BYE BYE Ice Hello open water

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!
