Sage to Giants.


Recommended Posts

This one is a mistake IMO...The Vikes, otherwise, have been fantastic in their player acquisitions/drafts and releases.

I really didn't think they'd let Sage go...especially considering Favres health and age. TJack has never made it more than a couple of games without getting hurt either...Vikes are really rolling the dice.....

Giants acquired QB Sage Rosenfels from the Vikings in exchange for a conditional future draft pick.

The rest of the league really missed out on a quarterback who could start for several franchises. Aggressive Giants GM Jerry Reese capitalized, even though his starting quarterback, Eli Manning, has never missed a start. Rosenfels finished the preseason 31-of-51 for 402 yards, four touchdowns, and no interceptions. He threw 15 TDs in nine games for the Texans in 2007. In New York, Rosenfels will be a significant upgrade over Rhett Bomar.

I think this one will bite them in the butt, in the near future! BIG mistake!

I wonder what we got for a pick? I'm hearing a 5th for both Sage and Reynaud, what a joke.

It's a real big joke if they keep a roster spot for that extra kicker that kicks no further then Longwell, when we could of just kept Sage.

Sounds like a 5th next year and probably something close to that in 2012. I don't think anyone's too sure about the exact terms yet...maybe they're stock-piling picks to move up next year and take a REAL q-back!

QB Sage Rosenfels for a 2011 draft pick and a conditional 2012 draft choice. I think the 2011 pick is a 6th pick. Should had been Tarvaris Jackson instead. Bad news is that we'll have another year of the Jackson's experiment. Good news, Joe Webb will be our #3 and maybe the near future franchise QB.

Why cant chilly just admit this whole tjack experiment was a failure, man what an ego.


I think it all came down to economics for Vikes. Too much money guaranteed in Sage. Now we have a QB that doesn't care. Favre staying healthy is our only chance. I hope O-line can come together and give him the protection he needs all season. Vikes must be looking ahead at next offseason to see who might be available and make a strong pitch to get him. If season ends with Tjack at qb and season is a failure I sure hope then that Chilly/Vikes dump him.

The Vikings could have offered Jackson but I doubt anyone would have bit.

They tried last year with absolutely no takers. He is a year older and looks worse than ever.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.

      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"

      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
