This could be a win/win, maybe Farve can take us deep into the playoffs or we implode and get a new coach. I say roll the dice.

It is tantalizing to think about spreading that offense with someone who could get the ball to Berrian, Harvin, and Rice. 3 wideouts with AP in the backfield, droool smile I don't see this happening with Tjack or Sage.

But I'm not real thrilled with marching down the field 50 yards and then forcing a throw into double coverage and cough up the ball. It's 100% evident he's an upgrade if he's healthy. If he doesn't get that arm fixed with surgery, it's not worth the hassle IMO.

On the Brett Favre torn bicep injury.

My Dad, rest his soul, tore his bicep in HALF on a motorcycle wreck when he was in college. He played catcher in college, had one HELL of an arm, even when he was in his 40's. It is not really an issue, you can believe me or not.

When he flexed his bicep it looked freaky, I wish I would have taken a picture of it! Looked like popeye!

I should add that he did have to take time off for it to heal...

If he comes, I would do anything to watch the Vikes. Im a true fan, but this would show the fans that their doing everything they can to make a true run. Without Favre its still a up in the air season. Go Viks, go Farve!

Norm25,

Being that the Packers are the only professional team located in Green Bay and the only winning professional sport in the state of Wisconsin, I certainly hope you could sell out every game. If a fan wants to attend a professional game, it's not like you've had very many choices over the past 10 or 20 years. cool

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.

Would it hurt? Like my post said, make him earn it- if he sucks in a tryout- tell him no thanks.

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!

True to some degree but some things do come before football if you have perspective in life. That said, I have not missed a game in in about 10 years. I have even traveled to 7 or 8 away games. I would consider myself a true fan but I rarely buy tickets. I have a 52" HD TV, surround sound, bar, bathroom, refrigerator, and a remote control with DVR to replay whenever the refs are screwing the Vikes again. laugh I would rather stay home but I don't see that making me less of a fan.

Here packer fans let me beat you to it, "at least we won a superbowl! LAME!"

Well, I wasn't going to point out what is so obvious to everyone. gringringrin

Honestly, when you are evaluating who has the better franchise over the years, Super Bowls matter. Now, as a fan, I'm a Packer fan even if they haven't won any Super Bowls. If the situation were reversed, I expect most of the Vikes fans on this board would waste no time pointing out who has won a Super Bowl and who has not, and I expect the Pack fans would be sick of hearing it. Pointing out who has and has not won a Super Bowl is only "lame" if you're a fan of the has nots. gringrin

I totally agree on the baseball/basketball deal. Strangely enough, I've been a Twins fan from the outset even though I'm a Cheesehead. Probably one of those American League/National League things. smilesmile

Can't we just let the Cheese have this one little thing?... yes they are better Football fans than we are.... that wasn't so tough was it?

Now about that darn torn bicep. Talk about frustrating to think we're a torn bicep away from having a decent chance this year is a real bummer to say the least.

Go vikes/Favre!

I agree with you on that Steve. A true fan can complain about his team, but they will still support them.

Dude! My post didn't say anything about it being OK to complain about your team. Well, I DO think it's just fine to whine but didn't really cover that topic in the post. Methinks you were seeing what you wanted to see. smilesmile

It may be a fine point, but Favre tore his bicep tendon, not his bicep muscle. They heal differently. Muscle tissue heals on its own much better than a tendon will, I'm told. I know Favre hates being under the knife, but arthroscopic is barely surgery at all. I've gotta think if he REALLY wants to play and signing with the Vikes becomes dependent upon repairing the tendon, he'll get it done, especially if he can be ready by training camp.

Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty supports the Vikings' pursuit of free agent Brett Favre.

Pawlenty called the potential signing "a wonderful little salt to rub in the eyes of some of our Green Bay Packer friends." "Can you imagine Brett Favre going into Lambeau Field in Viking purple and maybe even wearing No. 4?" he added. "There would be audible gasps." And the rivalry intensifies.

The player rep for free agent Brett Favre, Bus Cook, claims that his client is still retired.

"As far as I know, he is retired," Cook said. "To my knowledge, that is not true," he said when asked about reports that his client will meet Vikings coach Brad Childress on Wednesday night. Clearly, Cook is not to be trusted.

#4 could throw better left handed then any of the QBs that MN has now!!

If he has to have surgery it would take 4-6 weeks for him to start throwing again and another couple weeks after that to become the gunslinger of the past again!!

Free agent Brett Favre refused to confirm or deny talks with the Vikings on Wednesday.

He may as well have confirmed. NFL Network's Scott Hanson interviewed Favre's agent, Bus Cook, on Wednesday as Cook and Favre texted back and forth. It appears Favre didn't consult his agent before following through with the visit. That'd be the only logical explanation for Cook being in the dark.

      Very, very few ducks in Ely today.  4 grouse seen with only 1 coming back to camp.   I literally saw more fish today than birds.  And I skipped the fishing gear this time! 😒
    • monstermoose78
      Finn and I hiked the river in Sherburne and only saw 5 swans. 1000 cranes and not one duck or goose.  Saw some guys looking in the grass and they said they dropped a woodduck and Finn found it for them. Boy Finn was mad when I gave them the duck.

      Fished Black Brook Flowage (Apple River) today. This is my kinda lake! Very few houses, small little boat launch. Only caught 2 little pike. Missed a small Muskie, and seen a mid 30’s hovering under the boat. Was tough dealing with the wind, but I like this place. Fishing below the dam with waders is a possibility also.

      I’d like to know what you have also.

      On the south end...  A really good week of fall walleye fishing.  Big numbers of fish being caught.  It should only improve as water temps get cooler.  This fall has been unseasonably warm. Big numbers of walleyes and saugers are set up along the south shore and anglers are catching a lot of fish.   Most anglers are anchored up and jigging with a fathead or emerald shiner.  Live shiners are available and effective.  There are still a lot of walleyes being caught on spinners with minnows surprisingly.  Trolling crankbaits has also been catching a lot of fish. The best reports are coming from 18-28 feet of water across the south shore in areas such as Pine Island, Morris Point, Zippel Bay, Graceton Beach, Long Point and Rocky Point.  Various schools within these depths.  In addition to walleyes and saugers, pike, jumbo perch, sturgeon and even a few crappies are in the mix for walleye anglers.  On the Rainy River...   Emerald shiners continue to run in the Rainy River and more and more walleyes are entering the river each week.  Fishing has picked up but most believe when water temps reach the 40's, it will get even better.  Currently, temps are in the low 50's. Jigging with a frozen or live shiner, is the go to method.  Emerald shiners are tough to beat this time of year.  Some reports of big fish being caught, but not in big numbers... yet.   Sturgeon activity continues good.  A gob of crawlers and/or frozen shiners on a sturgeon rig (18 inch leader made of 60lb test, circle hook and a 2-3 ounce no roll sinker) is the ticket.  The catch and release season continues through April 23, 2022. Up at the NW Angle...   Fall fishing up at the Angle continues to be excellent.  Most anglers are using a jig and minnow or jig and plastic.  Some strong reports with warmer than normal water of spinners with a minnow or plastic being the hot bait.  Gold, pink and/or glow colored jigs and spinners are doing well.  Reminder, no live, frozen or dead bait being able to be transported over the border from the U.S. into Canada, consequently anglers boating into Ontario waters reporting various plastics on their jigs and spinners working great. Various areas of structure such as points, reefs and sandy areas in neck down areas continue to hold good fish.  12 - 26 feet is the range depending upon the spot.   Big crappies are in their fall spots and being caught on jigs and minnows in 25-30' around various structure. Muskie anglers report good fishing overall.  Trollers reporting mixed results.  One day is great, the other not so much.  Covering water trolling is a strong fall muskie technique and should get better as water cools.    Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Boating into Canadian waters is now open.   Charter boat transport and float planes are still available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air.

      Minnesota’s waterways were unusually deadly this year, with 17 people losing their lives in boating-related drownings and crashes—the highest number since 2005. And with weeks of open water left this year, there’s a chance that total could climb higher.Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
