Taylor is doing a great job without Peterson. Keep Peterson out another week? I am sure glad we have Taylor.

Can they make the playoffs?

If they do, is Chile's job safe? Is it safe now? Have to admit, the team is doing better than I thought with no QB or receivers.

It was a fun game to watch, thats for sure. The defense won the game for them, they will not get that lucky every week.

Playoffs? No way, but atleast they are in contention, kinda. If they beat the lions, then, I will get excited about them, just enough so they can loose the next couple to make us non believers again.

I will watch the rest of their games, win or loose. Peterson should be back, to make the games fun to watch.

Go Vikings!

If by miracle they got to playoffs it would be an embarassing 1 and out. Manning gift wrapped that game to us. D was good-offense and T-Jack a c+. Remember, they had their best RB out, too. I still don't think Chili is the answer here, IMO.

Down to Earth

Granted I'm a Packer fan, but I will give my .02 worth. I think the Vikings have a pretty favorable schedule from here on out. Here is what they have:

v. Detroit - a team that has lost 3 games in a row. I can't see them coming into Metrodome and winning

@ SF - Definately a winnable game, but on the other hand it was a winnable game last year and they managed to lose out West last year also

v. Chicago- MN showed they can run on the Bears and that was in Chicago. No reason why they can't beat them again in the Dome

v. Washington- another avg. NFC team, playing at home I think gives them the edge here.

@ Denver - to me the only "obvious" loss on the schedule. Denver most likely will be playing for the AFC West title and possibly a playoff berth.

So I don't think 9-7 is out of the realm of possiblity here. The only bad thing right now is they are 3-5 in conference and will probably end up losing out on tie breakers. They cannot afford a loss to an NFC opponent from here on out. With the way the Giants and Detroit are playing right now I think the wild card spots could be up for grabs. You never know what can happen.

Did anyone catch the comments on TV about how the Vikes were tipping the play (run or pass) by how far back Chester was lining up? A guy called into KFAN this morning and said he called all but 1 play correctly after that.

Could Chilly not pick up on this? My 1st thought is that the Vikes could be setting up Detroit because they would see this on game film and then the Vikes could hit them big with Play Action but I could be giving him too much credit.

Adrian should rest at least another week...why rush him? NO way even with the schedule do they make the playoffs and Childress will be back but in my opinion they should have let him go at the end of last year and signed Tomlin!!

I'm a huge Vikes fan and watch them (however painfull) win or loose. I will say this about the game, the sun will shine on even a dog's rear end from time to time. I doubt the make the playoffs. I would hope they would rest AP another game. Smart thing to do.

I too watch the Vikes, win or lose, however painful it might be. The hard part is listening to people start talking playoffs. They are playing better, but they have a long way to go to be considered a playoff team. I think the should give AP one more week off and keep evaluating the talent they have. Also give T-Jack more and more opportunities to either prove is can do it, or that we need someone else. But no matter what happens, GO VIKES. grin.gif

Denver a "sure loss"-- come on. They choked agst the bears and Grossman. They gave up last year. IF the Vikes make it to the last game in contention, they will beat the hapless Broncos-- and likely get beat in the first round,, but who knows-- I remember a playoff game in GB a couple years ago...

Playoffs??? Playoffs??? Win one game and all the sudden things go from "You guys suck" to Playoffs???? Even a blind squirrel finds a nut from time to time.

Run defense looked good. Pass defense still has many weaknesses. Manning handed the game over to the Vikes. T-jack is bad. Chile needs to go. Peterson should play only if he's healthy. Really healthy not just saying he's healthy so he can get a rookie record.

The cheerleaders are pretty darn easy on the eyes, however!!

I don't think playoff talk is that CRAZY. Honestly the NFC and the NFL in general are really diluted with mediocre talent. But the NFC is really bad, thats PARITY at its best. How can the Vikes stomp 3 different kinds of dog crap out of San diego one week, and the next week SD beats theh reigning NFL Champions. Now if people want to start talking deep playoff run. Then they are crazy.

In Summary, yes the Vikes suck, but so does everyone else. It just takes a few good/lucky plays, or a favorable call from the REFS and boom playoffs.

Totally agree TNFL. Look at the teams in contention for the WC. Lions??, (loss 3 in a row) , Giants,, enough said. The Vikes are in the hunt as long as they don't turn the ball over and their pass def plays avg. MCcauley is getting better, and I think we get Winfield back this week.

Vikes have a very nice schedule, as long as they come to play. THe Bears game and Lions this Sunday are the must games.

Vikings coach's job is safe regardless if they make the playoffs or not..He will be back next season...

If they do, is Chile's job safe? Is it safe now? Have to admit, the team is doing better than I thought with no QB or receivers.

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.
    • Mike89
      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!
    • Uncle Boney
      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".   
    • Borch
      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket

      Angling regulations on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River in northern Minnesota would change under a proposal being considered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reduce the number of walleye and sauger allowed to be kept in the winter on the lake, and on the river allowing only catch-and-release fishing for those fish in the spring.  “We recently went through a public process of updating the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan and identified several potential areas of concern with regard to current levels of harvest,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette fisheries supervisor. “That’s why we’re discussing these potential changes.” The proposed changes would reduce the aggregate limit of walleye and sauger in the winter to align with the summer regulations on Lake of the Woods, and make spring angling on the Rainy River catch-and-release for walleye and sauger. The changes would go into effect starting March 1, 2019. Anglers will see yellow signs at public water accesses around Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River later this month notifying the public of the proposal. Future news releases will provide the details of a formal public comment period during the fall, and will include ways to provide comment to the DNR on the proposal. For more information on Lake of the Woods management go to mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
