When does free agency officially start? I thought it was today, or is it next week?

Too bad the Cassell for Taylor trade wasn't a possibility last year... when we still had Mewelde.

Get him here to help teach T-jack for a year? Are you kidding me? You could give that kid ten years with Favre, Marino, Elway and Montana and you still come out with Junk. Two good games a year maybe and that's if all the cards fall right.

Watching and supposedly learning from the sidelines is overrated anyways. Aikman, both the Mannings, Montana, Roethlisberger among others never took an entire year off and look at the number of Super Bowl rings there. Big Ben took over for Maddox midseason, I doubt he learned much. The best QBs learn on the field. Not holding a clipboard.

But the best QB's have something to bring to the field!

Nuf said right there. I think free agency doesn't start until like the 27th, doesn't it??

How about Byron Leftwich??? He will be an unrestricted free agent in a couple of weeks. Probably not the best choice with his lightening fast release of the ball, but hadn't seen his name thrown in the mix yet.

Anyone on here really believe for even one second that the Vikes would bring in a QB the likes of Cassell or Brady? It just isn't going to happen.

I'm not saying Favre is going to be a saving grace, but he is the best option that the Vikes would truly consider.

40+ years of mediocrity with no end in sight.

Did you think a year ago the vikes would make the trade they did to get Jared Allen?? After how aggressive they were last year i would say anything is possible.

The field isn't the best place for tjack to learn. That's pretty obvious.

Tjack has nothing in common with the quarterbacks you mentioned. Brees, Cutler, Favre, Brady, Romo, Rogers(sorry)and Rivers all sat and learned for one or more years. Throwing a guy in there when he clearly isn't ready is a death sentence for quarterbacks. Vince Young, David Carr,Ryan Leaf, Alex Smith come to mind. Tjack is/was a project that, to me anyway, has failed miserably. We reached for him in the draft and both he and chilly have been underwhelming, to say the least.

I guess I've given up on tjack and am down for us to put anybody on the field but him.

For the record the whole Favre deal wouldn't be my first option.

Not much out there in free agency QB wise. Mostly guys who are stop gap players. No quick fix quarterbacks out there.

I also don't think there is a QB we can draft and immediately start.

Hopefully tjack can figure it out this offseason. I have my doubts, but hey, I've been wrong before.

Word our of Cleveland is that Derek Anderson is due a huge roster bonus here at the start of free agency and that the team has already given the reins to Brady Quin for next season.....

What happened to Anderson though? He tore up his arm or knee or something didn't he?

Last year he completed only 50% of his passes with a QB Rating of 66.5. Not exactly "dynamic" in my book.

Oh, I know. He brings nothing to the table, and the guys I mentioned have talent. Look, Jackson was a Div II QB, I know it, you know it, we all know it. He says he transferred because he wasn't going to play. After watching him, I can see why.

You are talking about Derek Anderson, right? 99% of his problems last season were in direct effect with the fact that Braylon Edwards forgot how to catch the ball between his Pro Bowl season and last year. Aside from Edwards, Winslows the only other decent option. I feel bad for any QB that has a WR that can't catch and a tight end as his 2 options. Not destined to put up great numbers in that scenario.

Zam you hit the nail on the head, Not only that when ISN'T Winslow injured at some point and time during a season?? No running game don't help any either. I will take Derek in a heartbeat over T-jack and roll that way. Draft another qb while we are at it, and a right guard and lets play!

Yep, Andersons a huge upgrade from Gus and TJack. Weird saying this now, but Anderson was drafted ahead of Warner this last year in our fantasy draft.

If we could get Anderson for a mid round pick I think it would be worth a shot. At least there would be a good competition in camp. Anderson, at worst, would be able to manage the game better than tjack.

WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING TO RESOLVE THE QUARTERBACK SITUATION!

Anderson got shafted...I watched him make tons of nice plays and throw the deep ball just for the wr's to drop most of them..alot of them were in the endzone...Anderson has one of the bigger arms for qb's in the league.

The team was playing like dung and they have a qb in the wings that cleveland wants to make love with.

Anderson is horrible but COULD be an up-grade over T-Jack...

      First sits of the weekend occurred for me this past weekend. Friday morning was kind of odd I thought as birds where gobbling very early.  I figure because of the full moon, the sky was bright long before shooting time.  After flydown the gobblers were very quiet with very sporatic gobbling all morning.  Sat until noon without seeing a single bird. Friday afternoon was very active, good amount of gobbles between 4:30-6:30pm.  Had a group of 2 large gobblers walk by about 5pm and at 5:15pm had a group of 3 young toms walk by at 30 yrds not presenting a shot. My blind in very near a roost site so I left the blind about 7:30 so not to get caught at dark if they decided to roost there.  On approach to the bean field I watched 2 very large toms work the field, until the neighbor shot and both birds scooted out. Saturday, had Abigail with her 20ga.  Again plenty of early roost gobbling in all directions.  A little more gobbling after flydown as well.  I assume the same 3 young toms from Friday worked by us at 6:30am never really acknowledging us other than gobbling as they pastes us at 50yds.   About a half hour later, I called in a loud mouth hen that actually fanned out for our up right Avian x hen decoy.  That would be last bird sighted for the morning although we has gobblers walk by out of sight 2 more times. I left the woods alone the rest of the weekend as the landowners kids and grandkids were home for Easter and like to enjoy the woods when home.   In the end a good and frustrating weekend.  The birds were definitely not buying what I was selling as far as calling was concerned.  Something I was doing was off, as they may have walked by, did not really investigate much and didnt hardly look at the decoy.   Good luck guys and gals.

      Drove past Osakis on my way home this evening and it is pretty much ice free. 
    • Mike89
      Little O really lost the ice today!!!!!!!  won't be long now!!!!
    • Nix769
      Show some optimism!😝  The forecast has dropped some but I don't see the ice lasting much past the 1st.  I went out in front of my parents on Frazer...some of the latter ice to go...was sketchy enough I turned around and went back.  Opener is certainly a non-issue.  My boat goes in next wknd...but my back bay allows me to do that!
    • timjones
      Saw the first boat launched at Battle Point access about 2:00 this afternoon. Three guys were out for about an hour and came back and took the boat out. Don't know if they fished or just checked to see if any ice remained on the lake.
