Norv has been stressing "getting the ball out quicker" all off-season long. I'm sure there is going to be some re-learning and adjusting to playing "faster" than he has in the past. Cassel the same thing...

Glad to see he's making the effort...mistakes should and almost HAVE to be made in order for him to take the next step.

A simple learning curve.....

If the learning curve was easy Tarvaris Jackson would still be our starting QB

Purple...

I wasn't implying that the learning curve was easy at all...that's just what he's fighting thru right now.

In fact, as a rookie QB in the NFL, the learning curve may be the most difficult one to attain as any position in all of sport.

Norv's pushing him hard...he's asking him to do things that feel unnatural to him right now. Failure on a play in training camp can be more important than success in reaching his full potential. Failure is a great teacher.

That potential may not be realized for a year or two...just like most of the franchise QB's we have in the league right now.

I don't think anything was easy for Junkson, all you had to do is listen to the guy talk.

It's practice plain and simple, that's what practice is. They are looking to see what everyone can and can not do, they are running new plays, they are testing guys on the bubble. They are doing things they wouldn't do in a game.

If the coaches tell the QB to just throw it up because they want to see if this undrafted rookie WR can jump and fight for the ball and it ends up being an INT that isn't really on the QB. If the ball hits a guy right in the hands but pops out into the defenders hands that really isn't on the QB.

Now if he's over throwing the WR's by 10 yards right into the FS or SS hands, or making bad short throws right to a LB, that would be bad decisions and poor throws.

Saying a guy threw 2 or 3 INT's today in practice doesn't mean much.

If Johnny Foosball did it they'd be saying how daring and confident he is in his arm lol.

This is fun...

I think that even if Teddy doesn't throw anymore INT's in practice I'm going to report that he did just to see what excuses are trotted out here.

next time make sure the number exceeds the number we're used to seeing our QB's toss up during an actual game.

3? Shiiiiiiit that's nothing! I bet Cassel/Ponder wrecking crew can toss up more than that in a last minute game losing drive!

Yeah, why the silence, there's still plenty of things to complain about, Ponder, the defense, Darin Nelson from 30 years ago?

If I may politely interject? I'd say the kid looked pretty darn good last night! smile

I'm cautiously optimistic about the season. They're moving the ball pretty well, and the defense is stepping up nicely.

Just my two cents....

He played more up to the hype last night for sure. Granted it was against Arizona's scrubs but at least he got things done. Cassel looked good again hopefully he can keep it up.

I find it interesting that the announcers are much like some of the board members. They had Cassell anointed as the starter by half time, and were at a loss for :confused words by games end...... confused

I don't think how Bridgewater played in the second half changes who the starter will be game 1. Cassel has played OK definitely hasn't lost the starting job if it was his to begin with but Bridgewater certainly opened some eyes that maybe they finally have a cutthroat qb. Time will tell on that but he was sharp and the last drive was nice regardless of who it was against.

Agreed.

Bridgewater needs time to learn and develop.

His passing accuracy and poise were pleasant to see.

I also like that he isn't always looking to run.

It is going to help a tad once AP is in there also.

Should be fun to see how this plays out.

This 3rd preseason game will tell who they are ready to roll with as our starter,the QB starting that game will probably play 3 quarters.

More then likely Cassel will be our starter for the beginning of the season. I'm ok with that he's got the most experience with our core players on offense. Norv likes Cassel and supposedly wanted him last yr so he's probably a nice fit.

Our 1st team offense has been pretty good and we haven't even brought in the BEAST yet. I can't wait to see them spread it out and let AP run in space.

As for Teddy that last game was great, accuracy, touch, poise, audibles/protections, looking off defenders, scanning the field, hanging tight in the pocket, clock management, no turnovers. They weren't sitting back and letting him pick apart a zone either they were bringing heat from every where. That was a nice test and he answered on everything. I'm not saying he's arrived but that is everything you could ask for to see in a Rookie QB. Hopefully he can keep learning and progressing to be consistent.

Teddy needs to be the starter on day one. Cassel is a nice bit player but he has limited potential and doesn't come through in the clutch. Bridgewater delivers when the pressure is on and if he starts the season he will end up being the best QB in the division at the end of the year.

Purple...did Walgreens run out of your prescription??

Teddy looked great last night but Rodgers is arguably the best QB in the league...let's not get ahead of ourselves quite yet.

I think Cassel is the starter day one...he's been very good this pre-season. I think the team "looks" at him as their starter and I think that goes a long ways in a teams confidence.

It was nice to see Teddy "break-out" so to speak...the next few years should be great watching him hopefully hit his potential!!

Purple is obviously kidding... No way best in division. Unless the other 3 division QBs go on IR, he is not better than Rogers, Cutler or Stafford and I have no love loss for cry baby Cutler or butter face stafford... Bridgewater is even behind the 4th best QB in the division and he is a marginal starter. We'll see how he does against a #1 defense... Instead of bubble players...

Good Luck!

All that talk about "bubble" players.... Who was Teddy playing with on his side of the ball? That's right he was also playing with bubble players ,making them look good. I am not going to lie, I don't want to see him start game 1 I didn't even like the pick when they drafted him, but he looked good last night under serious pressure. As far as the vikings go, their offense has look solid despite no AD but their defense looks horrible, first team or bubble players, it doesn't matter they look bad right now. Hopefully the learn the system more and look better when the real season gets here.

Bigdave and LMIt are conspicuously absent. Right on cue.

Or maybe Bigdave has a job and a life? What do you want to know? I'd be happy to enlighten you.

Exactly. Cassel has been simply moving the ball well, and that is without Peterson in the backfield to get 8 men into the box. No reason not to let him have the day one start. Either way, it is good to see there be competition because both played well, as opposed to both struggling.

28/36 | 322 yards | 8.7 avg | 3 TD | 0 INT | 1-8 Sack-Yards

I don't care who is throwing the ball, if our team passing line looks anything like that in a regular season game that is outstanding.

      anyone been out???? heading up a week from tomorrow........lake conditions..........ice reports.........landings info would be appreciated.   i know things will change greatly between now and then but......... its really hard to find any info googling resorts and bait shops for some reason.

      You can say that again.  A statewide limit for panfish should be cut in half.

      To renew your Fishing license before going out...New ones were due March 1... Also going into effect March 1 New sunfish regs on Horseshoe chain..  Possession limit is now 10 fish.  Long overdue in my opinion ♥️

      This is the spot I have chosen...  Second pic is the 22 "winter" access.. It's located about a mile and half south  of Richmond Mn on hwy 22.  Last pic is of the route from winter access to the Fishing spot.  First pic is of actual spot I picked.  From my scouting missions, this seems to be the area with the most active fish.

      Hello again friends. Island cabin in Frazer / Smarts Bay area. We have used AT and T for many years and usually get decent cell coverage due to cell tower proximity, but as usual get buffering when the lake is busy. That being said, we burn a lot of data streaming tv through our hotspot and computer to a large computer monitor. I am considering buying a 32 inch smart tv, an antennae (not sure which networks would be available) and an Apple TV with storage. By doing this I think I should get local network broadcasts (may even be able to get a cheap portable DVR/ bring Apple tv downloaded from home with content to view non-streamed (no hot spot). Has anyone tried this scenario to save on data and perhaps reduce buffering from a low cell signal?

      We are about a week and a half out yet... As of now, Ice conditions are very good holding at a little over two feet thick yet, we have about 5 inches of new snow on top of it. Hoping we don't get quite as warm and windy as they are predicting the next week as this will eat the ice quick... I will keep an eye on things and keep updated.

      On the south end...  Fish houses can be on the ice through March 31st.  Walleyes are open through April 14th, pike never close.  A good week of fishing despite a number of temperature changes.  A variety of walleyes, saugers, perch, pike, tullibee and eelpout being caught in 29-33 feet.  Jigging spoons with a glow stick or rattles tipped with a piece of minnow for the jigging line.  On the deadstick, a colored hook with a live fathead has been effective.  Electronics are helpful to show suspended fish.  When suspended fish are spotted, reel up quickly before fish swims through.  When your lure is 2 feet below the fish, reel up to the fish slowly so you don't spook the fish.  The suspended fish have been larger walleyes overall.  Big pike being caught on tip-ups with a quick strike rig and either live sucker or large dead baitfish in 5 - 15' of water.      On the Rainy River...   Morning / evening bite continues to be the best.  Remember, March 1st - April 14th, catch and release only for walleyes on Four Mile Bay and the Rainy River.  The snowmobile trail on the river from Baudette to Wheeler's Point to the NW Angle staked and groomed.   Up at the NW Angle...  With the border closure, there are four ways to travel to the NW Angle without crossing the border.  1.  NW Angle Guest Ice Road from south shore up to the Angle.  2.  Snowmobile trails across the lake.  3.  Lake of the Woods Passenger Service (bombardier).  4.  Lake Country Air flying service. A good number of walleyes caught this week up at the NW Angle.  Walleyes in 24 - 31' of water.  Jigging with a lure producing noise with rattles is effective.  Tip jigging spoons with minnow head, tail or whole minnow.  Experiment until you figure out what the walleyes want.  Plain hook or a glow jig with a live minnow on deadstick.  Communicate with your favorite NW Angle resort for specifics.  Ice fishing on LOW through March.  Remember, a new MN Fishing License is required March 1st.

      Averaged 18" with a range of 16"-20". Starting tomorrow I should get out everyday while the access holds up.

      I am sure there will still be safe enough ice to venture on next weekend.  The forecast looks way more like spring starting tomorrow than winter though.  As far as I can see, its nothing but 40's and even 50 in a week.  Its going to make for a sloppy mess out there, but it will still be safe enough to walk on.  The access point could be in rough shape though.   Bear in mind that most game fish seasons have now closed as of yesterday.  The only season open now is panfish.  Specifically targeting a walleye, northern pike, or bass is illegal and could get you in big trouble.  There are exceptions (mainly on some border rivers), so I would encourage you to check the regulations ahead of time.
