Can Percy still return kicks/punts? 

Not sure I care for him as a receiver anymore, but they can't have Hughes doing kicks anymore given the lack of DB depth.

(I loved Sherels, (the bookworm, ex-gopher) but it's time to put that pony out to pasture...  His muffed punt in the playoffs/49ers was like the Godfather II--"Fredo, You broke my heart!")?

Any Thoughts on vikings opener? This team especially on defense looks very good on paper with all the off season additions I'm exited to see if every thing can come together. Our O line has question marks but also some young potential.

Sometimes I’m glad I have to work when they play. Today was one of those. Would have been so disappointed to have wasted a beautiful day in the house watching them play just good enough to lose.  Instead I wasted a beautiful day at work. They have good enough players, but they just can’t get it all together some weeks. Looks as though they will still be in 1st place after tonight. So there is still hope. At least we looked better than Packers.

I was just going to say that kinda funny we are in first place after that performance. O-line was just a complete disaster Kirk never had any space to step up in the pocket and make a throw none the less he still went 39/49 with 350 yds and 2 tds not bad as he was running for his life the entire game.

You don't know that Cincy is the worst team they will play all season.  We only have 1 game in the books and that does not represent a pattern.

 

The penalties are what frustrate me.  They are completely avoidable and preventable.  3 false starts on the first offensive series alone?  C'mon.  That's why you have 3 pre season games, to work out those kinks, adjust to game speed, block out back ground noise, and develop chemistry with your teammates.  Its a direct reflection of coaching.  Zimmer did not have his team prepared.

 

As poorly as they played in the first half, they showed some resiliency and heart to come back and force OT in the second half and had a legit chance to win until that fumble.  I also watched the rest of the division and sad to say, the Vikings were the best team out of all four, with the Packers being the worst.  The winner of the division could end up 8-9 or even 7-10 this season.  But if you win your division, you get a home playoff game.  Washington won their division last season at 7-9 and hosted a playoff game.

 

The NFC West looks stacked.  And unfortunately, the next 2 games are against that division.  Looking at an 0-3 start.

 

Just grateful that I can watch football again because baseball sucks.

He says this-"We only have 1 game in the books and that does not represent a pattern."

Then says this-"And unfortunately, the next 2 games are against that division.  Looking at an 0-3 start"  ?

The first portion was specifically referring to the Bengals.  The second one was specifically referring to the Vikings.  I may have misrepresented myself on that one though.

I dont know if you can consider the Bengals the worst team we play this season  considering we play Carolina who is very bad and how poor the entire division looked in week 1. The Bengals were bad last year but also consider Joe Burrow was out for a lot of the year. As far as up and coming teams I think the Bengals have potential to be a high power offense this year. Our schedule looks like a meat grinder this year to say the least.

You can't make this up anymore.  37 yard kick for the win and he pushes it right?  Somewhere Blair Walsh is laughing at us about this.

After the first game I thought, may be we have a kicker at least? ?

      We're having daily heat adversey,  20+ days of 90 deg. Hang in there. NOAA and Federal forecast just announced the Midwest has a 95% chance of a January through March La Nina which means a cold winter and above average snow fall. Early ice may be a challange with forecasted colder and wetter October through December.

      2 weekends ago I got out for the first time in a couple months and we hit a little lake in the Crosslake area for some crappie fishing.  We trolled small plastics in 12-14 feet of water and caught a lot of crappies and sun fish.  The crappies were all in that 9"-11" range for the most part with one at 11 7/8" and the sunfish were up to 9".  We ended with 15 crappies and 3 sun fish kept for a nice meal or 2.  We went back this past Saturday and the fished moved to deeper waters as they were not in the 18' or less range.  We did find marks on the graph in deeper water but was too windy to try.

      Made it to Riverdale Flowage today. Pretty silted in, structure less reservoir. Still has some potential. Seen a few bass swimming around, and caught 2 pike early on back to back casts, but didn’t see another fish after that. Floating leaves EVERYWHERE made whopper ploppers a difficult presentation. Jig and craw about the only thing I could use to keep that stuff off.

      On the south end...  An excellent week of fall walleye fishing.  Bring lots of bait as the fish are active.  There are lots of small fish in the system that bodes well for the future.  You will catch your eaters and other larger fish, but will usually have to sort through small fish along the way. Anchored up and jigging with a fathead or emerald shiner is the go to method.  Most fish are usually adjacent to the bottom.  Live shiners are available and effective.  Some anglers still using spinners with a minnow or trolling crankbaits. The best reports are coming from 17-27 feet of water across the south shore in areas such as Pine Island, Morris Point, Zippel Bay, Graceton Beach, Long Point and Rocky Point.  Various schools within these depths.  In addition to walleyes and saugers, pike, jumbo perch, sturgeon and even a few crappies are in the mix for walleye anglers.  On the Rainy River...   Emerald shiners continue to run in the Rainy River, consequently, there are walleyes around.  Jigging with a frozen or live shiner, is the go to method.  Emerald shiners are tough to beat.   Trolling crankbaits is an extremely effective technique in the river.  Also great in locating walleyes or when fish are scattered.    Sturgeon activity continues good.  A gob of crawlers and/or frozen shiners on a sturgeon rig (18 inch leader made of 60lb test, circle hook and a 2-3 ounce no roll sinker) is the ticket.  The catch and release season continues through April 23, 2022. Up at the NW Angle...  Fall fishing up at the Angle continues to be excellent.  Most anglers are using a jig and minnow or jig and plastic for walleyes.  In some areas, walleyes are stacked and active with big numbers of fish being caught.   Gold, pink and/or glow colored jigs and spinners are doing well.  Reminder, no live, frozen or dead bait being able to be transported over the border from the U.S. into Canada, consequently anglers boating into Ontario waters reporting various plastics on their jigs and spinners working great. Various areas of structure such as points, reefs and sandy areas in neck down areas continue to hold good fish.  12 - 26 feet is the range depending upon the spot.   Big crappies are active in their fall spots and being caught on jigs and minnows in 24-30' around various structure. Muskie action was hot this week.  Jigging large baits has boated good numbers of fish as well as casting and trolling.  Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Boating into Canadian waters is now open.   Want to avoid crossing the border?  Charter transport via water and ice and flights over the lake are available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air both this fall and into the winter months via ice.

      I did pretty good bass fishing on Saturday from 8am - 1pm.  It was frigid when we started at 8am but by 10 the sun was fully up and it was more comfortable.  A friend and I caught 7 bass and 5 pike.  I caught the biggest bass I've caught in a month, a 19.5 incher.  The water temp was 58 degrees.  I might try going one more time and then hang it up for the season as long as the water temp stays above 50.  I think turnover has just occurred because the water temp dropped about 10-12 degrees in less than a week.

      Yep, western MN and Lake of the Woods diver reports were good from the weekend.  That Arrowhead head area is fickle for ducks and hitting the migration.     We had a fantastic week up there about 8-9 years ago and have been chasing that memory almost every year since.  We just don’t spend as much time doing it anymore.  Still love being there in October and that chase.   We went from a 30 decoy spread in small clusters to a 6 decoy spread set up in a 4/2 grouping.  That’s the one they liked.  No pass shots, wings cupped and feet down or they were left to carry on.   I gave up the fully flocked mallards in exchange for the early season mallards.  I don’t know if that change worked as well as I think it did but like I said, they came to em.  Even the geese.
