What is funny about the Vikings' 2006 schedule is that the most interesting game for me, offhand, is the first pre-season game, when the Vikings play Oakland at the Metrodome. This, of course, will be Randy Moss's first football appearance back in Minnesota, and will make an otherwise meaningless pre-season matchup a little more interesting.

And, there is also the regular-season game at Miami, at which point Culpepper may be starting for the Dolphins, plus the matchup with Arizona, which brings Denny Green back to town.

These three games add a little extra spice to the season (or pre-season), in addition to the usual contests with Green Bay and Chicago. (Detroit just doesn't make the grade as a rival of the same class as the Bears and Packers, IMO.)

I'm sure a local channel will pick it up. When games are on ESPN one of the local channels always plays it. Usually channel 5.

Also, you can't tell me that they didn't make the schedule to boost the ratings. Old teammates vs. new team. (Miami and Arizona, Seattle, Oakland preseason). Doesn't really seem like a schedule based on how a team did last season. More like grudge matches.

It's not like they are going to rip off the pads and have a knock down drag out! But that might be fun too!

Actually the whole schedule regarding who a team plays is predetermined, they only thing that was released yesterday is who plays on what date. All the teams in the NFC North are playing the AFC East and NFC West, so the Miami, Seattle, and Arizona game was set a couple years ago. The two other games Washington and Carolina come from the other 2 NFC divisions and are determined on place of finish. They both finished 2nd just like the Vikings.

Oh...today on the NFL network it kinda sounded like they just figured it out this spring. Maybe your right though. No matter though.

DTE is excactly (SP?) right, one with knowledge could tell the opponents for this year at the end of last year. The Only significance of the schedule is HOME vs. AWAY and what date.

Actually even the home and away is set in advance. The only thing that isn't set through 2009 are the 2 games against the NFC divisions we don't play. Those two games each year are determined by the previous years finish. Example for Green Bay next year plays the NFC North, NFC East and AFC West. THat gives you 6 home/away games with the division. Then we also play Oakland, Philly, San Diego, and Washington at home. Then we play Dallas, Denver, KC and NY Giants on the road. They other two games will come from NFC West and South determined by finish.

Minnesota will play the same teams as the rest of the NFC North with the only exception being the two yet to be determined games.

Like I said....it doesn't really matter. It's going to be a long season! Maybe the guy I saw was part of the crew figuring out the dates and home and away part of it. It will be interesting with Sunday night game this year. The 2 networks that hold all the Sunday games will get to protect a game each for a given Sunday, then NBC will get to chose the night game they get. They are trying to get more playoff type matchups for primetime, because the Sunday night games last year didn't matter much for the playoff picture. Nice for TV viewers but maybe not if your buying tickets in advance for the afternoon game, and it gets moved.

"One with knowledge" huh? Always nice to wake up, turn on the puter and read a jab!

I predict 5-11. No way will they make the playoffs until they get a QB in here!

wait, wasn't Brad Johnson 6-2 or 7-2 last year when Culpeeper went down? He's still our starter you know... I just don't understand that negative logic... oh wait, yes I do... it's Minnesota bandwagon or a Packer fan.

Sorry I want to be wrong, but this is how I see it, 6-10, maybe 5-10 if the Lions get lucky once. There's just too much against us to have a winning record. New coach, a ton of new players, new O and D schemes. I hope I am wrong, but if not we get a nice draft pick next year! grin.gif

Im not sure how the heck you can even go through the schedule and put a win/loss next too any game. Too much changes every year. Who would have thought the bears last year too do what they did. Who would have seen Philly in the basement. This team could be 12-4 or they could be 6-10. There is no way too tell until they kickoff a couple games. On paper it looks tough, but by 3 games in some of the tough games will look a little easier and some of the cakewalks you saw coming will look really tough. And we havent even had the June signing period. Who knows what kind of players that might bring in here. And with all the draft picks, who knows what Ziggy might do. They might pull off a trade for Schaub or someone else, or move up too get a marquis player. Just no way too try and guess what record this team will have right now in April.

Maybe in June I will change my tune, but for now that's how I see it! Oh yeah, it was fairly easy to put a win or a loss next to a game. It's called a gut feeling. I also listed the changes and how I felt it would affect the team. It's the Vikes we are talking about, not New England.

If the Vikes pull off a trade for Schaub, I may even ad some more losses! If he was so great he would have Vicks job, cuz Vick really isn't that good! Yeah he can run, but not much of a passer.

If you don't predict high, then they won't let ya down...again! My way anything over 6 wins is a bonus!

Hey it's my .02, you don't have to agree grin.gif

There is no way they are going too put Schaub in for Michael Vick no matter how good he is or what his potential is. Vick is the one of the NFL's marquis players for some reason and he isnt going too be taken out for that reason alone. Its a money thing thats the reason Vick is at QB at all. He isnt a very good QB and should be playing another position. If Schaub is the backup too any other QB in the game it would be another story too question his abilities. But no young QB is going too come in and take Vicks job because of the $$ he brings in. I cant count on both hands how many times i've heard on TV and radio that Michael Vick isnt the best QB on his team and seeing the couple games Schaub played i would totally agree. In his first start he threw for over 300 yards and 3 TD's. Vick has never thrown 3 TD's in any game and Schaub does it in his first start throwing too the same supposedly dogged reciever core along with rushing for about 50 yards. If MN would pull off that trade they would solve the future QB of the franchise question in a hurry.

I was thinking the same way until i thought about game planning. if you game plan for vick and schaub comes in, the defense has the wrong game plan, thus schaub does well. i would like to see him play 6 or so games, when he is the undisputed starter AND the other team has gameplanned for him specifically,to see how he does. until then, he is an unproven commodity that has good potential.

He started the game against the patriots where he went off. They had the week too prepare for him. Im not saying hes stonecold proven, my point is that at least we have seen something of him, we've seen him take some NFL snaps and do very well when he did. I think his upside is very high. I would rather see a trade for him than too move up in this draft too get someone whos never taken a snap in the NFL, if that is indeed how the vikings plan too fill the future franchise QB role.

So how do you gameplan for a player you have never seen play (as NE had to do)? That is my point. It takes half a dozen games to figure it out. I am not against him, I just dont rely much on his 1 or 2 game performance.

Wow, I was thinking more along the line of 4-12 after we have given away our offensive talent over the last two years.

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      Guessing u aren't from the 218. I went 2 the Virginia n Chisholm lucky 7s today n both locations had shiners.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?
    • slammer
      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
