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

Did you already use up all your PTO so you could vacation in the Foosball thread?

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..

So he was just in another college game...you've already seen that! He looked good in college with the same talent level on his side of the ball against the same talent level on D. 1st team NFL defenses closing in on you every play will change your comfort level in the pocket...

Not saying he didn't play well... Just temper the love fest till he proves he can do it against a real NFL defense...

Good Luck!

I always love that one, if Vikings fans give props to their rookies they are love fests but if them same rookies don't do good all the haters are in the thread saying how their careers are going to be horrible based off the same preseason.

He dominated the "bubble" players, that's what a good rookie should do. I don't think many people here think he would of done the same type of thing against the Cards 1st team defense.

I know the Packer Backers and the Foosball lovers wanted him to lay another egg but he didn't.

Bigdave and LMIt are conspicuously absent. Right on cue.

Didn't see the game. Was busy folding socks and sticking my head in a giant vat of asphalt, which was much more entertaining and satisfying that listening to that dope Paul Allen. At least the next two games will be away so we'll get some professional announcers for once.

Teddy needs to be the starter on day one
I'm positive that I can go and find the same quotes from many on this forum about Ponder back in 2011.

No doubt that Bridgewater is looking good. I think that both QBs are benefiting from being in Norv Turner's system. The guy knows how to build QBs. He's also not prone to pressure so I have very little doubt that Cassel will start the season and hopefully finish it. Spielman only got Cassel to come back with the promise of getting a legitimate shot to be the starter.

The Vikings aren't on the verge of anything, so I don't understand the haste some have to throw him into the game. That works for some players but not for others. It's a complicated game especially at the QB system. Who cares if Cam Newton did it for Carolina as a rookie? I'd rather have Bridgewater be the man for the Vikings a couple seasons down the road then go through a Ponder or David Carr scenario.

so you only "watch" the game when something happens that meets you shtick. Got it go back and bury your head in sand again.

BTW PA did the first game yet you were able to watch that one?

Bigdave I have always agreed the mauer and morneau deals were ridiculous. It hamstrung them since they weren't willing to spend more on other players to be competitive.

Teddy looked pretty good again last night. Yeah yeah, I know...preseason, he's playing against scrubs who will be working at Mcdonalds next week....whatever. He's doing what they want him to do in the situations they put him in, right now that's good enough for me to give him a thumbs up.

And 3 picks? By the Vikings?? Gotta LOVE to see that!

It may be a while before Teddy hits the field with a pro-bowl QB playing in front of him.

That will be great for the Vikes if Cassel is a Pro Bowler this year. The one nice thing about him is he's not afraid to let it rip down the field.

If Teddy don't see the field at all this year in regular season that is a good sign for the team. I have a feeling we will be seeing him at some point this season though.

I like what I'm seeing from this squad already, the score doesn't matter in preseason but how you execute and play with passion does.

It's nice to have some real coaching and systems out there, we are keeping it vanilla and it's already more exciting then anything we've seen the past few years on both sides of the ball.

Just wait when Peterson is out there. I agree if teddy doesn't hit the field this year that's a good thing because Cassel is playing well and we're winning.

If the offensive line plays well this offense will be more than fine. Hopefully the defense can continue turning the ball over and make some big plays this year. Objects in the mirror may be closer than they appear!!

If and when Cassel has a bit of a rough stretch, I see Teddy in for some experience maybe depending on the score.

Our O line has been pretty good so far and the D has also been doing a better job.

I cannot wait to get AP into the mix as that will give the oppositions D a lot more to worry about.

A lot of the credit can go to our new Coaching staff in total, it looks to have given the players a new hope.

Least this season, there is some hope and one can see improvements on this team.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe TB is actually putting up more points, and more yards then Cassel. Kansas City kind of shut down Cassel in the second quarter, but when TB came in the offense started moving the ball down field almost effortlessly. Cassel put up a few points, but TB's crew humiliated KC's defense!

I could certainly be wrong, but I sense a real confidence in our O-line with TB at the helm. He's got a distinct feel for what's going on out there, and he reacts accordingly. Pretty impressive for a rookie.

Canopy, I dont think you are wrong in saying that at all. In fact, I was going to comment that aside from the 53 yard pass play to Patterson, I thought Cassel played average. He made some bad passes. TB has put up more points, but at the same time I think he has been on the field more too.

I am encouraged by what he has shown though. Definitely progresses each week. It is so nice to see a guy (regardless of rookie or not) stand in the pocket and make MULTIPLE reads on a play. Not laser in on a receiver and take off running if the play isnt there. His pocket presence has gotten better as well. Mistakes he made in the first game have disappeared.

Its preseason, so there is a long way to go yet. I wonder if he is going to play much on Thursday? I know Ponder will get some extended time, but how much will Teddy get?

I'm not sure about that. He did say he was sticking his head in a vat of asphalt... can't imagine the fumes from that do anything to help one's understanding of anything except what "lightheaded" feels like.

Sounds like the vikes named Cassel the week 1 starter.

Never thought I'd say this... but I'm okay with that. He's exceeded my (admittedly and quite biased low) expectations this preseason.

I agree with FOM though, real test will be the defense. Our defense was quite terrible last year.

It's obvious by now that Cassel is going to be the go to guy. But again, last night TB moved the ball extremely well, worked the pocket with confidence, scrambled only when he needed to, and commanded the offense with relative ease.

Ponder came in and his performance was right on par with previous years. Field goal, field goal, field goal.... laugh

I like Teddy. I hope we get to see more of him on the field this year then most seem to expect. With our schedule early season our defense is going to have to be stellar. Otherwise we're going to have to put up points like a slot machine! eek

The two thing that jumps out at me with Teddy are, his emotions stay level good or bad like he's been there before. Also he throws a perfect fade, that will be tough to stop in the red zone.

      One more question about communication and weather alerts on eastern Rainy Lake.   We could occasionally get  an AT&T signal, especially after we had signed up for the Canadian signal.  We were about 16 miles east of the visitor center, and at the Kemp Channel entrance.  The signal strength kinda depended on weather conditions and time of day.   I am looking at the possibility of getting a weather alert radio.  It states:  Public Alert Certified Weather Radio, Receives all 7 NOAA Weather Channel and Reports.  It is also an AM/FM radio.  Does this actually work in the mid-lake area, or would you recommend something different?

      Ive been up since Friday. Until today ive been out in short stints hour here or there each day. Sometimes just graphing areas looking for pods of fish. I caught a few fish each time but considering the thick pods I fished it was tough to get them to go. This morning I finally got out and hit it a bit harder. Ive had zero luck dragging lindys through these fish. Ive gone to camping on them with slip bobbers and leeches. 15-18 feet. The bite definitely hinges on getting some wave action from the wind and that's been tough to come by. There was a window this morning where it was an alright chop and I was able to get 4 in that 14.5-16" range. I tossed back a couple that were about 19 3/4. I'd rather eat a 15" personally. But again I was on carpets of fish and it was pick one off here and there. I fished 4 different reefs for those fish. Lots of Fish flies. So annoying. I did not see substantial evidence of any may flies. I'll be up most of the next 10 days. I'd think there bite would pick up soon.

      On the south end...  Lots of limits of nice walleyes this week with plenty of larger slot fish (19.5" - 28") and trophy walleyes (over 28").  Schools of fish all around the lake.  From the Lighthouse and Morris Point Gap area which is adjacent to Pine Island to Zippel Bay to reefs and mud near Long Point and Rocky Point all producing.  Garden Island area also holds nice schools of walleyes.  The go to presentation is pulling spinners with crawlers or leeches at 1.0 - 1.3 mph.  Some anglers are doing well trolling crankbaits as well on lead core line or downriggers.  Nice schools of walleyes also staged over deep mud.  Some fish are shallow, 7- 15', other fish holding in 23 - 31'.  Hammered gold, gold/glow, pink, and orange hot colors this week.       On the Rainy River...   Sturgeon anglers catching some good fish as the season opened on July 1st.  Fishing holes in the river with a 3 ounce no roll sinker and sturgeon rig loaded with crawlers and/or frozen shiners.   Nice smallies in rocky areas.  Pike are also active cruising weedy bays, bay mouths and current breaks.  Walleyes hanging out on flats and can be caught with crawler harnesses or trolling crankbaits. Up at the NW Angle...  Until the US / Canada border opens, guests can travel across the lake staying and fishing in MN waters.  There are shuttle services available and fishing for multi species has been excellent.  Check with your favorite NW Angle resort for options.   Excellent fishing for walleyes, pike and bass continue.  Schools of walleyes on structure, over sand and on mud.  Nice walleyes 8 - 17' on the sand or 25 - 28' around structure.  The best presentation is drifting and trolling spinners with crawlers or a minnow.  Pike and smallmouth bass active in weedy bays.  Bucktails for pike retrieved slow working well.

      I stayed up there for a week and a half....the hottest week and a half of my life. I need to move to Alaska!   I bought $40 worth of bait and used none of it. Quite the shame. I did have nieces and nephews up that loved being in the "bath water" of Vermilion. Water temps were consistently 80 degrees and above. I'll save my hard core fishing for later this summer and fall I guess. A lot of memories were made and I added three youngsters to the stable of first-time waterskiiers on the lake.    MarkB - your reports are always great to read. I'm glad to hear that you had some success.

      I could be talking out of my rear end, but as a cautionary note, I thought that I remembered reading that many of the pit lakes carry invasive species. I think that the Rouchleau Pit has zebras. My only point is to be careful and read up on the pits before hopping from lake to lake or pit to pit.

      7.6.20 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Minnesota Lake of the Woods Walleye action continues in less than 10’ casting Rapala’s, floating leeches or pulling crawlers in rocks and sand bays. Walleye are also showing back up on classic structure including points and main lake reefs. Trolling deep diving Rapala’s has been producing very large pike and slot walleye in 12 to 18 ft. of water.   Lake of the Woods Musky opener was successful in shallow, weeded areas. With one over 50” boated and the rare 49.5” as well as many mid 40” fish.   With water temps increasing into the high 70’s this week, Rock areas are heating up. Smaller bass sized baits and blades have been favored by these toothy critters. Current musky anglers are seeing up to 10 fish a day!
