MNF

Recommended Posts

Mike Tirico(Sp?) has ruined MNF. I dont know how that little arrogant dink ever got that job but he is horrible. And if I hear Gruden say, "this guy" one more time I am going to barf. I sure miss the days with Al Michaels, Dan Beerdorf, and Frank Gifford.

To bad the cant fire Tirico and get the guys from the National weather service that do the Tornado and severe storm warnings. U know, the robotic ones. They would be way better.

Even those two guys that used to do the ESPN games with Joe Thiesman would be way better. Paul McGuire and I forget the other guys name. Even give me Miller.

Why do you watch so much football if all you do is complain about how bad it is? There has to be something you could do that wouldn't get you so riled up.

Between this thread and your vikings thread you're blood pressure has to be through the roof. I suggest counting to 3 with a few deep breathes and then maybe start mixing in a few minutes of the food network work or maybe catch a movie on the Lifetime network.

Or the replacement refs that are reffing this game.

Ya, look like it will be well past 11 by the time this one is over. 2 hrs for the first half.

This has gotten to the point it is comical with these announcers.

"You have to appreciate those plays that look like one thing, then turn into the other thing"- Mike Tirico

"There are guys comin and going, it looks like a ...................airport"- John Gruden

The only thing worse than Tirico calling this game would be Paul Allen.

Couldnt agree more paul allen is the only guy that can make a 1 yard run by ap seem like some running for a 85 yard td makes me sick

Great idea. Next week we should all watch and then compare and see what the dumbest quote we hear from these guys. There should be some real zingers with Aaron Rodgers playin. It just might be so bad it could bring me back to the Madden days. Maybe ESPN should hire Caliendo and let him do stupid Madden impersenations for the entire game.

Let's have Mike Tice, Denny Green, and Brad Childress hook it up. Funny how Chilly took massive heat which he likely deserved but Leslie no 1 is saying much, and we appear miles away from being a playoff thought.

I think that would be because Frasier is just starting his second year. Why fans of the Vikings expect ANY coach to take over a stinky turd such as the Vikings and turn it around quickly is ridiculous. The Vikings had ONE good season with Favre, nothing remotely close to that before or since. This turnaround process will take time and many draft classes to correct. I am 100% convinced that fans and media will run Frazier out of town well before the job is done, prolonging the timeline until the Vikings can be a force again.

I agree skunked, it's just too bad we didn't offer Tomlin or Dungy the chance when we had em. And I agree let Leslie just be the guy for as long as he wants, he's currently tied with Bud Grant in superbowl wins. Back to not only MNF but how about all these CBS guys or FOX guys. T. Bradshaw has the nastiest rug I've ever seen. I enjoyed Madden lol, "see you got this guy going that way and this other guy goes this way and boom". It's funny watching these testosteroned men who know or think they know everything hammering away at one another etc. then you watch the games and realize how they're guessing etc. Jimmie Johnson said "you watch the vikes indy, watch AP rush for easily over a hundred" Wrongo Jimmie

People like prognostication...it gives them something to either agree with or argue against. I, too, thought AP would eclipse a 100 yards at Indy. There run D has been deplorable. Nobody can be perfect in pre-game guesses, but I think a lot of the aforementioned announcers have a great deal more perspective on the game then we could ever hope to achieve in a lifetime as armchair QBs and they base their guesswork on that. Fair enough by me.

Of course, some announcers are just plain not very fun to listen to, or downright boring/embarrassing. Joe Buck comes to mind. And for my part, Al Michaels is terrible, too. I for one think Paul Allen is great to listen to. He gets excited, sure, but I like that. Makes the game fun to listen to...and if you are broadcasting on the radio you have to pep it up a bit. Just my two cents.

I beg to differ some pike, but I hear what you're saying, I've been playing and now coaching football for 31 years. Football's a pretty simple game in a way. It generally comes down to you either have the horses to win or you don't and the main horse is the QB in the NFL, but the teams that won last weekend, the teams that had the most rushing attempts in the games went 13-1. There's some perspective lol. You'd be surprised how many even High School teams now run a spread offense etc.

      Earlier this morning it looked like Vermilion froze over last night but now I see open water on the Hibbing Point webcam.  The strong winds must have opened the lake back up.  Tonight the temps drop to single digits and the wind dies down by 5am so it will freeze over tonight.  Expecting 1-2" of snow on Friday with high winds so hopefully the snow will blow off the new ice.  Saturday-Thursday looks very cold with no more snow, so the main lake should get a solid freeze.  Some are ice fishing in Stuntz Bay already, and some braver than I may walk out from McKinley Park this weekend.  I'm going to wait until the end of next week to venture out, although it will be very cold.

      On the south end... Ice is forming, but other than some back bays, it isn't ready quite yet.  Mother Nature is on track.  Some resorts are making the prediction of December 10th for day houses being out, give or take, but at this point, this isn't set in stone and time will tell.  There are cold temps in the forecast and things look optimistic.  Many resorts and outfitters have been checking ice conditions.  When the time is right, resorts and outfitters will slowly and safely begin marking and grooming trails for ice travel.    Please remember, ice conditions vary greatly in different parts of the lake.  One ice road can have good ice that has been checked and marked while down the shoreline there may be ice not suitable for travel yet.  Work through resorts and outfitters on the ice and stay on the marked trails for safety. Anticipation is high as the walleye and sauger fishing this fall was good and fish were staged in good numbers along the south shore.   On the Rainy River...   Much of the Rainy River is frozen up.  Things are progressing but it certainly needs cold weather and some time. Ice conditions vary and on the river there is current, so much like the lake, we encourage visitors to work through a resort or outfitter for safety.   Up at the NW Angle... Ice is forming nicely and is right on track for this year's ice fishing season.  There has been no ice fishing yet as resorts are simply monitoring ice conditions at this time, waiting until the ice is thicker before marking trails and getting fish houses out. Fall fishing was excellent with walleyes in good numbers along with some monster pike being caught.  All indications point to good fishing when the ice is ready as the fish are there. Driving through Canada to reach the Angle no longer requires COVID vaccinations or the use of the ArriveCan App (which is optional).   For those looking to access the Angle while avoiding customs, there are few options.   1.  When ice conditions allow, the snowmobile trail will be groomed and staked from the south shore up to the Angle. 2.  The Lake of the Woods Passenger service provides round trip bombardier service across the lake.   3.  Lake Country Air provides air service to both the south end and NW Angle.

      At least they can all say they were there early!

      I'm still hoping for a sunny warm-up to melt all of the existing snow off of the existing ice, and then an arctic blast. After that, I'm hoping for a giant walleye to hop out of the lake and filet itself before skinny dipping in some batter and then relaxing in a hot pan of oil in my kitchen.

      I'm planning to go later this week.  There's fresh snow coming tomorrow too.

      I would highly recommend not doodling around out there at night time either.  When those cracks form, the piece breaks off from the main sheet or the land and you are then caught "adrift" with no way back.   The bite is not as good as it normally is from what I have read either.  We're so used to hearing that "its on fire" for the early ice bite but that doesn't appear to be the case.
    • leech~~
      Well, a new report for today talked about cracks opening up and ice piling up!  Better check the night before you head up.  😕
    • Harv
      Leech,  that's what I've been reading.  I'm heading up on Friday the 2nd, for the weekend.   Fingers crossed limits are caught
