2016 Minnesota Vikings

What are they going to be this year?

I am looking for them to be in the conversation for the north and to be back to the playoffs.

This may change once we see what they look like in preseason, but I am looking for a 11-5 or 10-6 record.  With a improved passing attack, and yet another 1600+ rushing season for AD.

What are your thoughts?

Anybody have any thoughts after 3 preseason games?

I really like what I see from the Alexander kid!

Pass protection is looking like a vast improvement.

Rush blocking is still suspect.

Defense looks very good.

Thoughts?

Well, this place is officially dead.  18 hours after the Bridgewater injury and no topic.  The Vikes are going to struggle to get to 9-7 this year and I'm trying to be optimistic.  We need a QB and I hope the best for Teddy, he seems like a super nice guy.

That injury is going to sting this team a little!

I take a little solace in that we were successful last year without asking Bridgewater to do a whole lot.  Adrian is going to be leaned on big again this year.

I hope the best for teddy as well.

I going to keep drinking the purple kool-aid of hope.

I think the Vikes are a little underrated on defense, the question is can the D do enough if the offense can't produce?

Sam Bradford is now a Viking!

Vikes give up a 2017 1st round and 2018 4th round pick.

Kinda steep price for a 22 mil guaranteed QB.

I thought the same thing when I seen it scroll across the screen during the OK/Hou game yesterday. Hope I'm wrong & he plays well, maybe even help them win a couple

I can't complain with how they addressed this bad situation.  The Vikings are the anti-Twins, at least they are still trying to put something together.  Bradford while an injury risk, is the most accurate passer in the league.  We gotta keep him standing though...

Vikes need to unload AP and get the most either multiple picks or with a stud offensive lineman. He's too expensive for the team and they need to put that money into an offensive line. Vikings need to recoup some draft choices from trades. I'm not so sure Teddy will be able to play anymore. There hasn't been any news about his rehab, which, to me, means team and doctors are convinced he couldn't sustain hits and not be permanently affected. Maybe they can find a qb in the draft in later rounds while Vikes roll with Bradford for the time being. Hill needs to go and Heincke needs to prove himself. Resign Patterson and dump Johnson.

I am looking forward to next year. Shore that offensive line up and they have something.

The rest of the Division just isn't that good and the Pack will only get worse.

      Here in central MN we are looking quite well! With last nights -1 low we had some medium and bigger size bodies of water skim over. Only the bigger lakes are still open but most have locked up. Unfortunately with the forecast we will not be making much ice in the upcoming weeks. But that will not be an issue as bays of main/ bigger lakes and small lakes are in good shape. Went for A a drive on Sunday and found lakes to have 2-3” with most locked up, yesterday went for another drive and lakes I found to have 2-3 the day before now had 3-3.5”. Another I checked had 5” in close and 4” to just under 4” further out. With last nights cold and calm winds us avid early ice anglers should be good to go( with proper saftey precautions of course) for any time now. My plan is to head out in search of panfish next weekend and I can say for sure it will be a great trip to be able to get back to headwater adventures. My guess of being out on safe ice 4“+ set back about 3-5 weeks ago was SPOT on. I’m sure there will be a VERY long line of anglers heading out on URL next weekend, that will not be me I’ll stick with the less populated lakes and avoid the crowds as much as possible. Good luck to those who head out! Stay safe and report ice conditions and fishing reports! 2019-2020 ice season is here!

      I better upgrade to a Heavy-Duty tin foil hat, to keep Space-X from stealing all of my thoughts about the best fishing holes.

      Buddy made it out on Friday on a small lake and had 3.5 inches of ice.  Hearing reports from others that a lot of lakes were 2-2.5 inches and they backed off the lake after finding that.  Also heard reports that some of the bigger lakes the wind yesterday ate up a ton of ice but this morning the lakes really refroze quickly and further out.  I personally tagged out Sunday for deer so I'm switching gears this weekend and going to try to get some fish on top of the ice.  I'd assume a lot of lakes will be walkable by the weekend but avoid current and deeper holes unless you are checking ice thickness.  I'm hoping to get out Saturday and Sunday if I can find a fishing partner, buddy is looking at 3-5 lakes tomorrow and Thursday.  Looks like tonight I have the project of respooling line and getting ready for the weekend.

      I'd be worried about pulling my rig up the icy landing.

      Chucker, what is the latency for the LEO satellite service expected to be?    I know that was an issue for the Hughs service.

      Most of the lakes south and east of Aitken are locked up. Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Rabbit, Sisabagamah, and I would imagine many others.  Please be careful, use your ice pics, a good spud, and proceed cautiously. I saw on last nights news some poor guy took a quick swim in Skogman lake near Cambridge. Not good, could have had a very sad outcome.

      Talked about this before...low-earth satellite internet is pretty close to being ready. SpaceX just launched 60 more satellites yesterday, giving them about 120 in orbit now. They need 400 in place to start servicing the Northern United States and should be there by June next year. Low-earth satellite will be a game changer. High speeds, high capacity. So don't lock into service plan long-term. Still questions about pricing (haven't released any detail), but right now i'd expect early adopter rollout next summer, and widespread availability in Northern MN by summer 2021.

      Glad to hear that construction is starting, thanks for the updates!   Would be cool to get a periodic picture or two of the construction over time for those who happen to swing through Cook and stop by. Appreciate the info.

      Ice on the majority of lakes on the Iron Rage excluding big water and the mine pits.  I did see someone out today in a hub shelter on a smaller lake.  I'm shooting for a Red Lake trip Sunday if not I'll be fishing smaller waters around Grand Rapids
