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.

      Variable conditions seems to be the trend this season. This past weekend we had yet another snow storm which dumped approximately 10-12 inches in the Remer, Longville, Outing, and Walker area. Travel has been best still with sleds or track machines. Colder temps the past few weeks have firmed things up on some bodies of water which were once heavy laden with slush, however there are still several lakes that unfortunately we would not advise to travel on until things improve, and with the "January thaw" approaching that might be a while. If you are planning on traveling to the area, call the area resorts or bait shops to get current conditions prior. This past weekend was the Winter Inland Trout Opener. Stories of success were across the board. As some people had great success, others struggled. We ourselves definitely had noticed more lookers than takers on the Vexilar, but managed to get a few topside. Fighting the cold front that hit mid Saturday morning, being on the right body of water, and having the right presentation all factored in. Lake Trout: Lakers are hitting tipped tubes and spoons in 35'-70' of water. Look to the inside turns, points, and shelves. And the best advice I can give any fisherman targeting trout is STAY MOBILE. Keep moving until you get one on the graph, never spending more than 5-10 minutes in an inactive hole. And not only should you stay on the move, but keep that lure moving consistently, working the entire water column. Stream Trout: Try searching around 4'-9' of water on the stocked trout lakes. Small spoons like the Clam Speed Spoon tipped with a Maki Plastic or waxie have produced the best. Panfish: Hit the shallow weedlines for those big Gills, and drill out over the deep basins in 22'-35' feet of water to catch the Crappies. Tungsten jigs tipped with waxies have worked well. Again, the key to success is staying mobile. Walleye: Still can be found on the shoreline points anywhere from 11'-26' feet of water and on the sunken humps. Jigging using spoons tipped with a minnow head have been best when they have been aggressive. If your noticing them coming in yet seemingly shy of the jig, slow down your movement, and try a simpler presentation. Toss down a set-line with a plain hook tipped with a medium Shiner or small Sucker Minnow. Alice Wiese Wheezy Outdoors 218-275-7525 [email protected]

      Good tip on the sight fishing trout option Nick 👍
    • IceHawk
      I fish walleyes a bunch that's why I opted for the 8 inch K drill. But like we all know its not a true 8 😉 I know a lot of guys have 6 inch bits but most of them really only fish panfish from what I've seen.  Yes you can slip a decent eye through a 6 inch hole and many do with there accidental catches of them . But you start getting fish in the 24 plus range fairly often and the larger hole is definitely nicer to turn the head to get her to come up the hole. Its all a preference thing but personally if I'm targeting eyes I will go no less than 8 . And if you start chaseing greenbacks in Winninpeg  a 10 is even a better choice for there. Yes you can cut multiple  holes side by side with a 6 and this is another option if you rarely fish walleyes  with consistency.

      I'm not sure how the ice road is but I had -18 at my place near Ely last night. Tonight it should be right around 0 with a high tomorrow at 20. Hopefully that will help you out.

      I won’t hold you to that! 😂  Thanks for the “offer”.   The hunt is fun too, I really don’t mind but a guy only has so much time.
    • monstermoose78
      I have not had an issue, but look at the 7 inch lazer hand auger. For trout I cut 4 -6inch holes so I can sight fish. I should add I use a 6 inch bit. 
    • Wanderer
      I’ve been able to get mid 20 inch pike up a 6 inch hole a few times but the 8 will help you turn the head easier, especially when the line is wrapped around the back side of the mandible.   Honestly my plan is to continue running the 6 inch but when I think I’m going to pike or walleye fish, the 8 will be with too.  I’ll used that after I dial in with the 6.   I’ll that I’ve over lapped 6’s in a pinch to get a bigger hole too.  I just wouldn’t do it for more than 1 tip up if I had an 8 handy.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      For those who run the drill rigs ( like myself) do you feel the 6” bit is big enough for walleye and pike fishing as well? Saves a lot of wear and battery life with the 6” than throwing the 8” on. What I’ve heard is most cases the 6” will be fine unless you hook into a lifetime fish.
