Quarterback Depth....

Recommended Posts

I haven't heard too awfully much about this, but are the vikings considering any QBs to bring in to back up Johnson? I know that Harrington is most likely to be released here soon by detroit and Mike McMahon was released the other day. Personally I would love to see the vikes persue Harrington. Yeah he hasn't really done all that much with the lions but really their line isn't what you would call "top notch". He is young, can make all the throws and can even scramble when needed. In the right offense with the right offensive line in front of him I belive he can be at least a productive QB. What is everyone elses thoughts???

The stench on Harrington is still pretty strong so i don't really like him but who knows.

Rumors seem to be swirling that the vikes might package their first 3 picks together to go after one of the top 3 qb's.

Personally I think Schaub could be had for either pick 17 or their 2 second round picks so i would go that route instead. He is a little more proven, alittle older and you could probably get him for less, and leave yourself a draft pick or 2.

I would love to see Schaub, I just don't see that as a likely scenerio as teams with more to offer have not been able to get a deal done and it seems Atlanta is quite content with holding on to him. (perhaps losing faith in Vick's ability to win a big game?) I do agree we need to address this issue somehow and I think a young QB is the way to go. Harrington may be servicable but I think we can do better then that, especially with a coach that is known for molding young QBs.

I guess if I had to pick a back-up for BJ right now, I might actually go with Harrington over Schaub, just for game expirence. Both are about the same age I think. I know Schaub lit up the Vikes, but that didn't take much last year. I know Joey has had a tough life as a QB but he really never got a chance to learn from someone, like a BJ. The only other reason I say Joey is that we wouldn't have to give any picks up for him. Don't misunderstand me...I don't want him as a starter now, but given a second chance...he might actually do good if Childress can groom him. I hate to see the Vikes give up to much for a back-up, and Joey would come cheap.

It would be interesting to see what Harrington could do with a good line and some proper coaching. It's hard to look good when you have about 1.6 seconds to find the reciever before you get killed.

Thats a solid reason explaining some of Culpeppers problems last year.

I can't say it wasn't, but it looks like this year should be a little better. 3 pro bowl blockers is looking pretty good.

Any ideas on what/who we will have for a running back?

That would be Chester Taylor following Tony Richardson's lead block. Onterrio is about to be dumped. Now they need to replace Kleindropper and his overpaid self!

buzz,

Kleinsasser's role on the team is not to catch passes. It is to block, a role in which he is one of the top in the NFL.

That was on the old team there might not be a place on this team for him. too bad cause he's is a good blocker but over paid is right.

I think Kleinsasser should be wearing #61 and be a pulling guard. I have never figured the Vikings infatuation with this guy. He can't catch is fumble and injury prone. Can he block yes...go back to line #1. Just a thought!!!!

I understand that and I know that he is considered a good blocker "at the point of attack" and that in most teams books means he is waaaay overpaid. Besides a TE should be able to catch passes, this guys got lobster claws... reminds me of Quadry Ismail... aka... lobster boy. His time is ticking down on the vikes... tick tock buh bye.

he also goes down right away as soon as he's hit.A smaller db goes at the guys legs and it's all over. I think he's too top heavy or something.

      I believe the hog hunting farm is called Ridge Hunting Preserve, it is east of Little Falls the phone number is 320-745-2337 I know people who have hunted up there in the past and had a good time. They said the hogs were running wild in a 20 or 40 acre fenced area but it is not usually easy to get one but there is a high success rate if you have the time to work the area. I am going to confirm the location/name and will probably hunt there this year. Russian Boar are supposed to be pretty tasty and there are meat processors near by to drop the hog off at.

      For Vermilion, the Lowrance lake insight data is identical to Lakemaster, 3 foot contours.
    • delcecchi
      Maybe you should check the various sites that sell mapping stuff?   What is the Lowrance offering?   Is there a different Navionics choice?

      You're correct trumy.  I just posted this on that page.  Thank you.

      Hi everyone, I will be heading to Echo Lake, in the superior national Forest, the middle of June.  Never been there, but the small amount I found on this site says it's a good fishing lake.  Does anyone have past experience on this lake?  I'm targeting walleye mostly, but Pike and crappie are always on my menu.  Are there any lure colors that have worked well for you?  I'm mostly a live bait fisherman.  Any presentations that worked well?  Any advice will be greatly appreciated with this lake, and I will report back how it went/what worked.  Thank you everyone.

      The echo I'm thinking of is by crane lake that's where I would post my questions

      Any action out there today?

      May want to post this in the BWCA, Duluth.... regional forum.  You may get more responses there as that's the area the lake is in.   Goid Luck!
