Now the picture is as complete as it can be for you Vikes fans (barring a last minute head coaching change). If you don't win the Super Bowl this season, you've only got one person to blame! gringringrin

How anyone can criticize a coach who has went 6-10, 8-8 and 10-6 is beyond me. That's consistent improvement. He's loaded that team with talent from the defensive and offensive lines on up. He now has a decent option at QB. They might not win the Superbowl but he's done an outstanding job of filling positions with talent. Wilf alos deserves credit. Unlike the Twins' ownership, Wilf has put his money out there to bring in talent.

You nailed it on the nuts about putting the money out there for some talent, put the Wild and Wolves in that catagory also.. I am glad to see Favre still playing, never thought it would be for the Viks.

Favre almost cried again during the press conference. He's a pretty emotional guy who talks about girly things during a press conference. Still would rather have a old crying quarterback with a torn rotator cuff than t-junk.

i agree...i haven't been a chilly fan in the past but somehow he has grown on me....cool thing is brett will audible if the play is lame and make chilly look like an awesome coach lol.

this team is just stacked with superstars....whoever has got these players in here the past few years deserves tons of credit....i've been a wilf fan since day 1 forsure....he's the best MN sport owner ever IMO....since day 1 he said he's gonna do whatever it takes to build a superbowl contender...he's been goin for it ever since.

i hope we can get a stadium like the colts stadium!!! get out there and buy tickets and merchandise its on like donkey kong!

Yep no more excuses now this teams stacked with talent. Farve should be protected well with the twin cities (Mckinnie and Loadholt) on each side. Vikes will be a tough team.

I agree about Wilf. He came here and said he will get it done, and has been trying hard ever since. Good to see a guy like that. Chilly on the other hand.....I do like his beard!

I hope they protect the "Old Man" hate to see him start to throw up lead ballons trying to run away like he has in the past! cry

SORRY DHANSON! I was actually mistaken ... my fault. Favre contract is actually structured differently than most. If he is on the roster Sept. 13, he gets a check for 12 million (per the Pioneer Press today). So, the injury-risk that you mentioned is a concern.

That said, I'm willing to roll the dice with a guy who started 291 consecutive games. It's not my money! smile

First off, getting Favre really screws with Cheese fans so that's a good thing. 2nd- Wilf being the best owner in MN sports History?? No-no-- Twins and North Stars have had some better,, and got better results. We will see about Favre.

Bottom Line--- where are all the Packer Fans?? Who cares if Favre has a good season or loses to the Pack,, point is, he's playing for the hated Purple,, and thats; all that matters.

most of Cheeseland has turned into left out cheese in this case.

Go Vikes and may the Pack go way Back.

I now fully understand why the packerheads held Favre in such a God-like stature. I'm guessing the tornado's downtown today were nothing more than vapor trails from #4's passes at Winter park today? grinshocked

Well im sorry but there is a reason Chilly is considered on the hot seat. Lets not forget he took over a team that was 9-7 and took them down to 6-10. He drafts Adrian Peterson, no surprise they get to 8-8. They get Jared Allen and Bernard Berrian and go to 10-6, no surprise. Now the biggest hole on the team is supposedly filled. No excuses anymore for Chilly. Yeah the team is loaded with talent and i suppose some of that credit goes to Chilly along with the Wilfs. But now its time for Chilly to take that talent somewhere. This team has more than enough talent to win playoff games.

what would you guys consider a successful season for chilly and the team this year? do you think they have to make a superbowl appearance or would getting to the championship game be a success?

it would be tough to fire a guy if he doesn't win the superbowl...only 1 coach a season does that....we definetly have to win some playoff games.

as long as we stay semi healthy i think we should get pretty deep this year.

I'd say, barring significant injuries, a championship game appearance would be a sucess and Chilly is safe (unless there is a somthing similar to the take-a-knee debacle). A no-show or a one and out and I'd guees he'd get sent packing. I am not sure I agree with that though. JMHO

Ok not sure if this was posted before, but the Dave Ryan show did a parody called "Waking up a Viking". Way too funny. It's on u-tube also.

      The mouth of the creek is quite a ways downstream from the landing, and you’ll have to cross several peoples’ docks. Entire stream is surrounded by private property. Sure, you can technically legally access the stream, but why would you want to bother with the headache of dealing with landowners that DON’T want you there? Stream is small enough to step across in most places, it’s very weedy, and lot’s of overhanging brush. Not to mention, below average at best numbers of small trout!   You want easy access? Buy a Wisconsin license! Right across the river in Pierce County alone, there’s hundreds of miles of public easements on trout streams that are ten times better than anything Minnesota has to offer!

      Pike suckers are about 3½ inches long.  Walleyes really like them in the fall and early winter.  Caught my fish in 13-15 FOW drifting slowly.  Good solid bites.

      Got up Thursday evening to rain and pretty heavy wind Friday morning had us holding off on putting the boat in the water. Fished briefly Friday evening at sunset and picked up an 18" and a couple smalls. Fishing was decent Saturday morning but no real size, everything was 12-15". I had one that looked to be 17"ish flop off as I was trying to flip it into the boat. All the fish we caught were in 17-22'. We were fishing around about a 6' top but never caught anything on top. They appeared to be relating to the structure but not actually on it. Tried again Saturday evening for a couple hours and continued to pick up small walleye just like the morning. Sunday was windy again but we decided to slug it out for awhile and caught one decent perch and one small walleye. We fished similar depths and spots as Saturday but they weren't there. Marked them out in 35'+ but didn't feel like fighting the wind out in the big water so we called it quits around noon and never went back out(the wind never really did lay down or we may have tried again). Jig/minnow way outfished bottom bouncers/crawlers. Wish bottom bouncers would have worked better because it was tough to keep a jig down as fast as we were drifting and we never found a school to spot lock on.

      that last pic is great!!   Hazel is saying oppps!!!

      I am heading up there tomorrow.  Where do you guys get minnows up in the area?  Tower or Cook or down in Virginia?  I have never heard of pike suckers?  How large are they?  Are you guys fishing the East or West side of the lake?  Let me know.  I am thinking of fishing the East side tomorrow and then headed to the west side from Thursday thru Sunday.  Any help would be appreciated?  I am a newby to the area.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!
