Quarterback Depth....

Recommended Posts

Born2Fish

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!

Bears signed Griese to a five-year deal.

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.

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.

      Nice! Thx for sharing.  I have so many weird stories like that and it's nice to hear another strange one!  Great story and memory.

      Tough conditions this morning. Got tired of picking up decoys that were tipped over.  Post some of your waterfowl hunting pics Leech.

      Just so we're clear. You left this kind of harvest to drive around in 70 degree weather for 4 hours a day, why again? 😕

      Oh then your right, the DNR wouldn't be able to tell what it is until at least June!  😏  😆

      Snow?!  Hadn’t heard.  I’m still in Nodak and it’s been sunny and 69-70 degrees for highs!  Big wind yesterday but not so much today.  Birds are around but you have to look for em.  Been driving about 4 hours a day scouting.

      Holy snow!! It was coming down this morning around 8 am. Had geese flying but could not see them. Got buzzed by many flocks looking the wrong way as I could not look into the wind and snow. Had plenty close enough but never fired a shot. Off to the rifle range tomorrow with the old man.

      Well was able to get out in the kayak this afternoon as the wind went down was out for about 15 min and around 4pm while making my usual trolling pass on the green weed lines. I hooked up with a 36” 8.5lb northern! On a #6 Fire tiger flicker shad again using my baitcast rig with 30 braid. I paddled to the beech as I had no net or anyway to land it from the yak. As I was coming in my rod slipped out of my rod holder. I said ohh $&@! And figured well that’s a rough day. But for some crazy reason my rod and reel combo floated!! No sure how but it stayed right on the surface. I had no extra floatation on it either. All I can say is I think I had some special people watching over me today😉Retrieved the rod and locked it in the holder and made it to the beech and fought it the rest of the way in. By far the biggest fish from the kayak for me and one heck of a story. Well I think that was a great way to end the season.

      It's a small lake. Have ice fished out there in the winter. There is some decent crappies out there.  Never fished in the summer time. I want to say max depth is 25-30.
