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.

      Made it to Riverdale Flowage today. Pretty silted in, structure less reservoir. Still has some potential. Seen a few bass swimming around, and caught 2 pike early on back to back casts, but didn’t see another fish after that. Floating leaves EVERYWHERE made whopper ploppers a difficult presentation. Jig and craw about the only thing I could use to keep that stuff off.

      On the south end...  An excellent week of fall walleye fishing.  Bring lots of bait as the fish are active.  There are lots of small fish in the system that bodes well for the future.  You will catch your eaters and other larger fish, but will usually have to sort through small fish along the way. Anchored up and jigging with a fathead or emerald shiner is the go to method.  Most fish are usually adjacent to the bottom.  Live shiners are available and effective.  Some anglers still using spinners with a minnow or trolling crankbaits. The best reports are coming from 17-27 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, consequently, there are walleyes around.  Jigging with a frozen or live shiner, is the go to method.  Emerald shiners are tough to beat.   Trolling crankbaits is an extremely effective technique in the river.  Also great in locating walleyes or when fish are scattered.    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 for walleyes.  In some areas, walleyes are stacked and active with big numbers of fish being caught.   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 active in their fall spots and being caught on jigs and minnows in 24-30' around various structure. Muskie action was hot this week.  Jigging large baits has boated good numbers of fish as well as casting and trolling.  Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Boating into Canadian waters is now open.   Want to avoid crossing the border?  Charter transport via water and ice and flights over the lake are available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air both this fall and into the winter months via ice.

      I did pretty good bass fishing on Saturday from 8am - 1pm.  It was frigid when we started at 8am but by 10 the sun was fully up and it was more comfortable.  A friend and I caught 7 bass and 5 pike.  I caught the biggest bass I've caught in a month, a 19.5 incher.  The water temp was 58 degrees.  I might try going one more time and then hang it up for the season as long as the water temp stays above 50.  I think turnover has just occurred because the water temp dropped about 10-12 degrees in less than a week.

      Yep, western MN and Lake of the Woods diver reports were good from the weekend.  That Arrowhead head area is fickle for ducks and hitting the migration.     We had a fantastic week up there about 8-9 years ago and have been chasing that memory almost every year since.  We just don’t spend as much time doing it anymore.  Still love being there in October and that chase.   We went from a 30 decoy spread in small clusters to a 6 decoy spread set up in a 4/2 grouping.  That’s the one they liked.  No pass shots, wings cupped and feet down or they were left to carry on.   I gave up the fully flocked mallards in exchange for the early season mallards.  I don’t know if that change worked as well as I think it did but like I said, they came to em.  Even the geese.
