And breeze did nothing to garner a penalty at all thats a clueless take.

Looked a little like he was trying unsuccessfully to throw a couple of punches to me.

So what should Munnerlyn have lightly pick Brees up and caressed him to the ground? It's either he throws him down or let's him stay up and make a play. If the refs didn't want him to get tackled they should have blown the whistle as soon as he was in the arms of the defender. The penalty came because he threw him down "too hard" and Brees ended up with his feet flying up and landing on his back.

Last i checked you have to be able to TACKLE in the NFL. Was he supposed to let brees throw for a first down while he kept a hold of Drew waiting for the whistle to blow? you have to be allowed to get a player to the ground. Horrible call.

And Drew getting all worked up like a crabby toddler... Apparently it was ok for the saints d and greg williams to try and decapitate favre for money, but its the end of the world for someone to "tackle" him too hard. Cry me a river Drew

My thoughts exactly ... situation was differant . If cassel or bridgwater where on other end. Because brees is a vetran QB the refs will side with him . A Rookie or Mediocre QB.. out come would be differant

Same goes for pass interferance calls with vetran WR vs. Rookie ,secondary type recievers

For those of you that deny that bullshat call changed the tempo of this game You dont know shat about football .

Riiiight...and not turning 3 fgs into 3 tds is not the bigger issue.

You got some Purple shat running down your chin, might want to take care of that.

So Michael L you're saying that going down 11 points after a long drive rather than getting the ball back with great field posistion down four points didn't change the momentum of the game? Did you not watch the game?

Yes the field goals also contributed, but that's an irrelevant point.

Dont confuse him with facts. He is too simple to understand them.

It was a close call...I can see the refs tossing that flag, but truly it was just bad luck that Brees took a roll. So it goes...

Obviously a huge momentum shift though!

It was a BAD call and a game changer for sure...

I waited to see how the NFL would look at this play to make a comment.

Both Captain and Blanton were cleared from any wrong doing as a result of this play. There were no fines handed out....

The referee stated that he threw the flag because the whistle had already blown...upon further review...he was proven wrong.

Home field advantage at its best.....

      I honestly have not even attempted to fish the chain in the recent weeks.  This past week my FIL did go on Tuesday to Trout and found a few willing whitefish for the smoker again but he said it got too hot to fish.  On Thursday and Saturday we went to lake further north and found a few willing crappies to keep us active but could not find any walleyes.

      Awesome report. Thanks @Joe

      I've only fished Birch a couple of times so I'm no expert.  My best walleye on Birch is this 28"er caught on the west end of the lake in mid September .  Caught this one and several eaters trolling Rapala deep taildancers in about 25 FOW.  Since you are new to the lake I recommend hiring a guide for a half day.  If you want the name of a good one you can pm me.

      On the south end...  Great walleye fishing this week.  Lots of limits, plenty of larger slot fish (19.5" - 28") and trophy walleyes (over 28").  The MTT Photo and Release Walleye Tournament winners had over a 9 lb average each for 5 fish both days of the tournament.  Lots of big walleyes in the lake.  Different parts of the lake have different things happening.  In some areas, the mayfly hatch was over.  In other areas, it was just firing up.  Fishing was better where the hatch was not in full force.    The go to presentations are spinners with crawlers or trolling crankbaits.  Nice schools of eaters on the south shore and up north around Garden Island in 10 -15' of water.  More and more walleyes also staged over deep mud in 30 - 34'.  Hammered gold with glow white and gold with glow red strong colors.       On the Rainy River...   Sturgeon anglers catching fish with the evening bite the best.  Fish 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 bays, weed edges and current breaks.  Walleyes 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.   Fishing has been awesome up at the Angle.  Schools of walleyes on structure, over sand and on mud.  Nice walleyes 8 - 17' on the sand or 25 - 28' around structure.  Big numbers of eaters being caught.  The best presentation continues to be drifting and trolling spinners with a crawler or a minnow.  Pike and smallmouth bass are active in numerous weedy bays.

      Yeah, wife took the grandkids to moosebirds for ice cream and was not impressed with the service or the covid precautions.
    • SkunkedAgain
      Now is there a locomotive somewhere in the lake to find?

      I had a pizza when the new folks took over, and it was not good. However, most everything that I have had since then has been really good. I had the walleye tacos this weekend and the weekend before that had the italian beef sandwich. My general sense has been to stick with burgers and sandwiches. They did badly overcook my brother's walleye sandwich and fries the other weekend, but it was a busy night so I get that it happens. They seem to have good crowds every night, so maybe kitchen staffing is an issue.   Last Sunday (a week ago) around noon there were only two girls working at Moosebirds with a line 10 people deep stretching out the door towards the street. My simple guess is that it's a struggle to find enough workers but that could be a naive assumption on my part.

      Sorry hit the wrong button.... For a place to stay on the Minnesota side of rainy your options are, Thunderbird lodge, Island View lodge or Sha Sha resort. All are 10 -12 miles east of Int’l Falls on Hwy 11. Another option is the new hotel in Rainer which is 3 mile east... I believe it’s called the Cantilever Hotel. Each has positives depending on what you’re looking for...   As for fishing...the walleyes are starting to transition to deep water. I went out for an hour Saturday evening and caught 2...the largest being 25”( in the picture) My wife and I were out from noon to 5 on Sunday (yesterday). We were fishing jig and minnows. Caught 18 walleys; 5 in the slot 14-16”, 1-18 1/2” all the rest 13” or smaller. Did a lot of running around to find active fish. Caught fish in 20’ and saw a lot of mayfly caucuses floating in the water still and a lot of minnows. Water surface temperature was 78 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s only going to get better...
