But I think Patterson has given up. How long before they just deactivate him?

Rumor has it that he's still a bit banged up... but I dunno. Hard to believe the ridiculous plays he'd been making up until recently were just flukes.

I'm not seeing the love fest for Norvana either... if this guy is the offense Master everyone claims, he'd be coming up with some schemes to at least give that putrid squad a chance... on at least a few plays a game. Something to keep the defense off balance... right now they dig in, tee up and meet you at the QB. Remember when Rogers was getting sacked every other play a couple years ago? Their Oline was horrific like this one. They started doing more rolling pockets to slow down the rush, passes to their RBs, more drag routes across the middle etc. Get Biffwater out of that pocket! and that's using the term pocket loosely! Come up with something... sticking to a pre-concieved game plan of that very 'offensive' line containing the pass rush and creating a pocket will make Teddy an old man quick! You can start seeing his confidence getting shook... he is starting to rush some throws and he does not want to run... he's already being hit 15 times a game.

I think they have enough tape now to realize that these guys are not going to all of a sudden turn their game around... you get paid millions, come up with something!

Sounds good LABS. Easier said then done. Center and G hurt now yesterday on what was already an incredibly inept offensive line.

The Vikes are essentially playing with a practice squad for starters on offensive except for a rookie qb and the wr. This season was over before it started.

At least the defense looks good. ONE of these years maybe BOTH the offense and defense will look good TOGETHER. But I'm not holding my breath

Well theres nothing wrong with counting bass .. or bridgewater

week after week of watching that horrible offensive line and running 3rd&16 and 3rd&20 when averaging 5-10 yds a carry because you have faith your defense can stop . Them there is something wrong with that IMO . Bridgewater isnt Jesus theres just to many issues with the offense , he is 3 games in to his carreer. Any elite QB would struggle behind Kahlil ,johnson , ducasse.. sure they played better than past games but still a sub par in comparison to rest of league

BIGGEST moment of the game, vikes are driving late to maybe get a td and go up by two scores effectively ending the game... Its first and ten from maybe the 12 yd line???? And who f---ks it all up? Matt Kalil lets Hughes or whoever it was run right around him in .2 seconds and sacks teddy for like an 8 yard loss... And how many penalties does this clown have so far to top it off?????

I wasn't a fan of taking an Olineman with a top 5 pick when we did it and ill never be a fan of it ever again. You couldn't get a SEVENTH rd pick for this guy right now

Its getting to the point where you have to take a long hard look at the GM and players instead of going through coaches year after year. Unless Bridgewater pans out i would say Rick Spielman has been a colossal failure and it may be time to not let the door hit ya on the way out Ricky

You must be one of those guys who think linemen are not very important to the game. I hate to tell ya but the linemen on both sides of the ball are the most important players on the field.

The O line is a mess.

the defense is Ok except when the game is on the line. Giving up a 4th and 20, come on man!

1 play that really annoyed me yesterday was towards the end, the vikes have the ball and are slowly but surely moving the ball and eating up the clock, then they throw a high risk ball deep down the middle. Incomplete, clock stops and now it is a long 3rd down. The vikes don't need to score, just run the dang clock via short passes and runs, move the ball into field goal range and win...Another play was when greenway gets fried on that 4th and 20... Man he wasn't even watching the ball at the snap, he was yapping at the sideline or something. Right then I figured we were doomed...

Big Dave- Obviously i think Oline play is important. Ive been ranting how terrible the offensive line has been for the last 2 weeks. Just don't like taking Olineman with high draft picks, as in top 10. You should be able to find good lineman later in the draft. Too many other positions id rather address with a pick that high. Just my opinion.

Dallas obviously had success taking offensive lineman high in the draft recently. I think they took Tyron Smith at like 9-10. Id be more comfortable taking your cornerstone T in that area, but 3-4 is just too high for me.

Not everyone thinks Aunt Norv is a mastermind. He turned Rivers into one of the worst QB's in the league, since he left Rivers has now returned to the upper tier. I don't understand why we don't call quick plays or roll Teddy out more, the plays being called are taking to long to develop, same thing that was happening for the Chargers.

Patterson has been open he's just not getting the ball, on that play the end came around and forced Teddy to step up Patterson was wide open crossing right in front of him, that would of been a huge play.

Drafting any position is a gamble, most people wanted us to either take Kalil which was supposed to be a solid safe pick or draft Blackmon, he's a giant turd himself.

      Jim Curlee  Absolutely everything you said about the SunMar is true for the Biolet. Experienced it all.

      Much of MN has been seeing strong storms every couple days over the last week but that hasn’t slowed out Leech Lake Walleye Guides from getting on the fish. Not a ton has changed since last week fishing Leech Lake out of Walker MN. However, we did notice a pattern change in the bait of choice. Both Lindy rigging and pulling cranks have changed a bit.   Much like last Week we are still focusing on Lindy rig fishing. The water temp has dropped back into the lower 70s which has the fish looking for leeches again and less likely to hit crawlers.   The humps of Walker bay have been producing numbers of Walleye but not the best for size. Most of our fish have been coming in the 10-17 feet of water.   One tip we did pick up on is using a pink hook for your leech rig. This set up has been out fishing others 3-1. Try to keep your boat in the .5-.7 mph range. This can be tough on the windy days but the new Ulterra has pulled its weight on the guide boat.   Our Walker MN Walleye guides are still pulling cranks with success.    #5 Rapalas in perch and Bleeding Copper flash have been good for us as of late. As you can see from the picture the perch are ripe for eating and the walleyes are chasing them. Target the 9-12 feet of water range and just about 2 mph has been a sweet spot for us. Like always the lake and the bite is the best when you have cloud cover or a breeze. This time of year the fish spook easily when the viability is good similar to calm and sunny days.   We do have a few openings left for August and September so give us a call to book your next trip or to stay up to date with our latest reports   Visit LeechLakeGuideService.com

      Nice work gents! Looks like the back-end of summer bite is heating up. Love this time of year as we head into Sept. How is the water level with all the storms passing through? Has looked rainy lately. Last I was up was early July after that 8" rain storm and the levels were back up to normal after being low in June.

      Good luck fishing! Im also fond of fly fishing. I find it easier to fish when you have the best fly fishing rods. If youre looking to upgrade your rod, you can check here.

      Seven specie day today.  Live bait not required!  Couple of things of note...   I caught eight nice crappies this morning on a deep rock reef, along with a bunch of plump gills. Seems odd, but I’ll take it.  This afternoon, I targeted ciscos and whitefish out over the basin. Success!  Was happy since I now know whitefish can be targeted year round, not just thru the ice.  I also enjoyed the challenge of a different species that not many folks know about.  Was a unique and fun experience.  By the way, everything I caught was immediately released.

      Congratulations on your retirement bfisherman11! I hope you enjoy every moment of it!

      Our week (7/25-8/1) wasn't greatly productive fish wise but I could never really get a pattern to work. I usually use a lindy rig with a half crawler. When we did try jig/minnow not much either. The start of the week the wind was tough to hold on a spot. Later we had no wind and high temps. I marked some surface temps that were like 78 deg, that's pretty warm.   I went down to Brule narrows one day, never been before. Picked a reef and caught a 19" eye pretty quick and then boat control got to be an issue.   Might try a week in Sept once I am retired (Friday is my last day) but I sure miss the ability to fish north of the border.   Bill

      Thanks Jim. I value all opinions, because I really don't want to spend the cash on a subpar product that makes my life worse!
    • moderation
      What is the best time of year for brookies. I've tried spring but waters too cold, summer, bugs bad but fishing good. Never tried fall but I am think that might be the ticket. Usually use worms but sometimes spinner. Is there a special trick to keep the chubs away? Lots of them in my creek.
