Favre

I also have to wonder how many Vikings-fan-Favre-haters will grouse about all the attention he gets from the media once he's wearing a purple uni. winkwink

I know I will be buying a Favre jersey if the vikes get him. I bought a jets one last year. I have always been a fan and was happy when he left GB.

Plans for the year.

Farve to start, he will mentor Sage and Booty who will fight it out for if and when Farve decides to "for sure" hang it up.

T Jack will be offered to be a offensive receiver/slot back/h back or to be released.

John Madden will come out of retirement just to do the commentary on vikes games.

There is a report out that Madden texted "NO" to Al Michaels when asked if he would return to the booth.

Yes Luke, the force is strong with this one grin .

I will cheer for the Viking's, and if Favre happens to be the QB, he may get a cheer or two from me, but I still will never be a Favre fan. You will never see me in a #4 Viking's jersey unless it has Booty on the back.

"As the World turns"

According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, free agent Brett Favre is actively recruiting unemployed quarterback coaches to help him work out in Mississippi as he prepares to play football in 2009.

Mort also dismisses a prior report that Favre had already hired a personal trainer. Favre seems intent on continuing his career and could be a Viking by the end of the week if his meeting with coach Brad Childress goes well.

I would be absolutely shocked if he actually ended up here. You would see all of our games sell out real quick. And for all those Packers fans who come over here when Green Bay comes to town, who would they cheer for??? Would love to see him throw for 300 yards and 4 touches against his old club. grin

My Packers, of course. If Favre wears purple, he's the enemy. gringrin

It's getting pretty close to a lock now. I believe Favre is going to be our starting QB in 2009. It's got me pretty excited to see how well this works out.

I'm with wandering, yea if he gets here I'll support him. But I'll also boo him if he turns to carp.

Just what the Vikes need when they want to milk the clock, 3 yards and a cloud of dust, impose their will, win the battle of the trenches, and play good defense...A guy to take risks and put the ball up for grabs (The question is, am I talking about Rosenfels, TJack, or Favre?). Way to find a guy that fits the style of play you've built.

BTW, bring him in, make no guarantees on whether or not he will be the starter, make him earn starting job. Let him suit up for a couple years, then make him QB coach

Da Chise...that's not the style they've built around---that's the end result when you have no other options.

I hope that last post was a joke Zamboni...or do you really believe that a 39 year old future HOF'er is going to come in and have a three way competion for the starting job...?????? C'mon.

"I'm with wandering, yea if he gets here I'll support him. But I'll also boo him if he turns to carp."

With what I have witnessed this would be nothing new. One person or the whole team, support only comes with wins. If the team is struggling they lose support. Viking fan equals fair weather fan.

If you have questions about this fact check on TV blackouts. Ask a Viking fan to explain this.. he will be able to.... a Packer fan will look at you and say what the F are you talking about what is a black out?

Alot of IF's, AND or BUT's here. First one being...is his arm healed? Second one...does he still have it in his HEART to play, or is it just for veangance against Thompson? One can win with heart, not with anger. If he comes back, I will cheer him individually but as a Packer fan... 2 games a year, he will be the enemy. The rest of your season still has to be played...not mailed in.

How is it fair weather to boo when you someone isn't performing? Like I said, I don't want him here. If he ends up here, I'll chear on the team. But I'll boo the 32 picks he throws in a game.

As far as blackouts, check the economy. Lots of folks can't afford a 2-400 dollar day to go to a game and how do you justify it when the product on the field is sub-par. So be cause you don't go to a game and chear them on from home, that makes you fair-weather? Whatever. I actually got season tickets this year so I'll be at half the games for sure.

Good post!!!

Economy doesnt have anything to do with the blackouts either!! If you a true fan you will do anything to see your team!

Citing sources close to free agent Brett Favre, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Favre signing with Minnesota is far from a done deal due to a "significant tear" in his right biceps tendon.

The Journal Sentinel calls the health of Favre's throwing arm "likely...the determining factor." Favre's injury has reportedly improved little since last year. His options are playing hurt -- which Favre did ineffectively in 2008 -- or having arthroscopic surgery that would sideline him until training camp. The Vikings play just one cold-weather game in 2009, which helps, but Favre might balk if they tell him to fix the injury. He's never been a fan of surgery. May. 5 - 11:43 pm et

All this talk about fair weather fans is bologna!!! If we diss our team it doesn't mean we aren't fans. I'm sure it's nothing but sweet talk in packerville all of the time, no ripping or no talking smack about your beloved team, especially last year when you guys pretty much sucked. I live 250 miles north of the Dome, there is no way I make it down there that often, I sit at home with my brothers, uncles, and dad, WE DON'T miss a game on TV and at times it gets pretty intense in the living room. Calling us fair weather fans because we are critical of our team is just nonsense.

      Shopped around the end of last season for a new case. Have had the Eagle claw  case for a couple seasons, and still use it quite a bit. Nice box for the $50 price range.  Like I said, shopped around....looked at the Otter 40  and 40deep series. Ended up getting the big Scheels 42 case. This thing is a beast...room for all but the longest rods, and lots of storage boxes to stuff goodies into.  My only complaint is the overall size...it's really too big when your trying to pack light....lol

      I heard there was a few open spots still last weekend.  Somebody walked out from McKinley Park on Saturday and found only 2-3 inches in the bay.  Now they got heavy snow and then very cold weather so all bets are off.  I delayed my first trip up until this Thursday to give the cold weather more time to work.  Hope to report decent ice then but I wouldn't bet on it.

      well we are 11-12 miles from marcell... some day mayhaps hook up at the timberwolf!!!!!!👍 good luck paying off loans!!!!!!!

      Let's get an ice thread going.   I saw on the fishing thread that someone said that Head O Lakes had open water prior to the most recent snowfall. Unless we melt off a lot of this snow, we are going to have a bad ice year. Is Big Bay completely frozen over?

      On the south end...  Ice has covered Lake of the Woods and in some areas of the lake, ice fishing has begun!  Other parts of the lake need a bit more time but things are moving along nicely.  It is always a good idea to work through your favorite resort or outfitter as ice thickness and conditions vary from one area to another. When ice roads / trails open up, it is normally snowmobiles, ATV's and side by sides with collapsible fish houses initially.  As the ice thickens, each ice road operator will announce when weight limits increase. Some resorts are getting fish houses out and fishing is beginning this week.  This is happening in areas of good ice that has been checked and marked.  The initial word is fishing is very good! Spearing and tip up fishing for pike on back bays has been going well with a nice variety of eaters along with the trophies at over 40".  Extreme safety is always important, especially so with early ice conditions.  Each resort / outfitter will share info as it is available.   On the Rainy River...  The Rainy River is ice covered.  With the current of the river throughout the year, knowing where and where not to travel on the ice is a must.  Work through resorts / outfitters for safety as some areas are not safe.   Pike, walleyes and sauger are being caught in areas where ice conditions allow, back bays and areas with low current that have been checked and marked. As the ice gets thicker in December, a snowmobile trail will be staked from Baudette to Wheeler's Point offering travel on the river, Mother Nature dictating of course.  When it opens, stay on the trail for safety.  No trail is marked yet. Up at the NW Angle...  Ice is progressing nicely up at the Angle.  Some local snowmobile travel has been happening in marked areas with good ice conditions.  Like every year, there are areas with cracks, current, etc.  Stay on marked trails when things open up.  Ice fishing for some will begin next week.  Check with your favorite NW Angle resort for specifics. Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Must be vaccinated and have a negative PCR COVID Test. Plan ahead with testing or rapid tests are available in Baudette and soon in Warroad.  Once at the Angle, no additional COVID testing is necessary for traveling back south from the Angle through Canada.  Want to avoid crossing the border?  Snowmobilers can take the groomed and staked trail across the lake.  Charter transport via bombardiers on the ice trail or flights over the lake landing on an ice runway are available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air this winter.

      Smurfy, just finishing up residency. I move up Dec 21st. Not sure how much ice fishing I'll do this year, likely some. Trying to pay off the school loans before I buy a ton if toys. I should be able to provide some weather reports and some ice reports as I can walk out and always check with the hand auger. I'll be renting a cabin on little bass but my sister is up by Marcell so I'm sure I'll get up there weekly
