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? ?

      I have a power washer that runs for a few minutes and then stalls out.  Can't restart it for hours.  The shop said it was a carb and so I replaced that and it still happens.  I thought it may be a problem with the vent in the gas tank but left the cap loose and it still happened. 
       
      Any ideas?
       
      Thanks for your time.

      There have not been a ton of fishing reports. What are you all up to right now?
       
      With this nice weather, I am hoping to take at least one more trip up to the lake in early November. Then I can do my end-of-season boat maintenance and then get snowmobiles prepped for the winter.
       
      Are people out hunting right now, taking hikes, making soup, burying nuts for winter....???

      My in-laws used to live just down from morning star. They weren't on the lake but they supposedly had access to the lake near morning star, some lake easement for residents living on the opposite side of the lake.

      One last morning on the water this past Saturday before we took the docks and lifts out in the afternoon. Trolled the Morning Star bay for crappies. It was slow with just 2 or 3 crappies, although they were big ones. We could have kept them but chose to release. Also got a couple of northerns. I got skunked but my girlfriend got a good size northern. Biggest fish that any of the four of us caught on Saturday.

      Well, actually going on family life expectancy.  Not many man on my dad's side made it past their late 60's.  On the other hand my wife's side most lived to late 80's into 90's.  So again, I really don't want to leave me wife in an area she is unfamiliar with or know anyone.  If she should pass away before me for some unknown reason.  Yes, they will find me dead in a cabin in the woods.

      Well I had to go north this weekend with the predicted weather and boy did it not disappoint!   What a great weekend of perfect weather!!  Hit up Gull Lake Saturday afternoon equipped with a dozen lite pike minnows and a plan to move until we graphed fish and move if they don't bite.  First stop we searched and found one spot with bait balls and a few fish but nothing was biting so we went searching.  Searched alot of ground over the next hour and half and didn't mark a fish, so we went back to the spot with fish marked and as we pulled up there was one boat right on the spot...catching a fish!!  We trolled around with this boat exchanging information and catching fish for the next 2 hours.  We ended up catching 9 throwing back a 25" and keeping 8 from 13" up to 23" that was gut hooked.  Fished in 20-32' of water using lindy rigs with lite pike minnows.  Some fish we would give a lot of line to and they would have the bait swallowed and other times we would give line and find the hook just barely in the lip!  Missed a lot of hook sets but could not beat what was possibly the last fishing trip of the year for me...GOOD LUCK

      I have been gearing up getting ready to walk again after 10 weeks!  I have been lucky enough to get out fishing a few times and can't wait to get out in the deer stand...bad thing is I have a basketball tournament for my 4th grade son on opening weekend of deer season and I am the coach!  Oh well I have used enough patience getting this far, what are another few days!  Otherwise not much for me to do...

      i think Leech is using his wife as a an excuse not to actually live out in the sticks in fear of meeting up with bigfoot!!!!!!!!!!🤣🤣🤭
