Todd Pinkston a viking

Recommended Posts

Just saw last night that the vikings signed him to a one year deal. Must be looking for depth at the WR position.

Great move.....not. Hopefully they do not put this guy into the starting lineup anytime soon. I like our starting 3. We need a number 1 reciever not a number 2-3, we have enough of those. Lots of cuts going on with players that would be better than Pinkston.

Yeah personally i kinda like that Carter guy(#11). Made some good cathes in the preseason and looked like he could be a legitimate #3 guy along with williamson.

I can't believe they let Carter go just to replace him with Pinkston. This guy was a young playmaker---something the Vikes need terribly. He was not bad at returning kickoffs and punts as well. Big mistake in my book.

Carter was undrafted; probably for a reason? Maybe.

Carter only had 4 catches; probably for a reason? Maybe.

Carters catches were longer throws; open for a reason? Defenses didn't respect him, and put the worst of the back-up cornerbacks on him? Maybe.

Did you see how accurate he ran routes when you detirmined this un-drafted rookie wearing #11 to be such a talent?

Did you monitor his breaks for precision and consistency throughout the pre-season and training camp?

Did you test him on his comprehension of play calls, and examine his work ethic, attitude, and demeanor on a daily basis?

Did you monitor him in team meetings, and and get a grasp on his overall knowledge of professional football?

Did he like fishing?

Did he like Cheetos?

Does he wear #11 because after 3 years he'd want to be paid more then any other poor decision maker with a bum knee in the league?

Answer these questions...

Looked like he could catch the ball (Carter), I want to see opinions on Pinkston, when we all see the alligator arms come out.

I agree. Just watch, a couple years from now Carter will be playing some incredible football for another team, and we'll be kicking ourselves in a @ss again because we passed on another prospect. Seems like the Vikes always do that... heck... I'd say it seems like all Pro MN teams do that grin.gif

The only thing Pinkston can do is go down the field in a straight line. He might not be able to do even that with his bum achilles. I wouldn't doubt if the Vikings actually end up letting him go in the next week or so. Seems like our coach is willing to give anyone he has coached before a chance. Nepotism anyone? Like someone previously mentioned, Carter would have been available to field punts and kickoffs. I also hear that we have signed Brooks Bollinger to a two year extension after only one practice. Why? This guy was was fourth on the Jets depth chart. Now that is scary.

Well, not so fast.

Jason Carter has been signed to the practice squad after clearing waivers.

A guy with that much speculated talent shouldn't have cleared waivers...

I'd expected the Packers to pick him up. After all, they are looking at Koren.

They're still upset over Darren Sharper though.

The Eagles have one of the worst WR core in the league and we pick up thier scraps????????

I'm not saying carter is the next, well, Cris Carter. But at least he is a warm body that could get some special teams use out of. I doubt Todd will play Sp. And I don't think he cracks our top 3 wr's. Soooo whats the point of getting him?

Same with the Jets. They have a starting QB that hasn't played a full season ever. They are a Horrible team offensively. Yet the Vikes think they can mold thier garbage into art. Nice work.

Big recievers are "IN". Carter isnt one. I like the kids talent but dont know eneough about him to say if it was a good thing or not. I cant believe he cleared and is on the practice squad. Maybe the Vikes pulled a quicky there?

      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.

      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.

      Congrats jfitz! I was in boat 85 in the big tiller Lund right behind you guys leaving the harbor. Our nice fish we had going completely disappeared on us.

      I hope you and your dad don’t mind passing along the story of your weekend. It’s a great story and defies conventional wisdom. Congratulations! The best fishermen have skill, intuition, and a little luck on their side.

      Welcome to to Fishing Minnesota, TheEyesofanAngler. My favorite lake for bass in our area is definitely Clearwater. It takes a bit to learn the lake, but the rewards are more than worth it.  Littlerock also holds some very nice Largemouth with a few bonus smallies mixed in... I know you said lakes and ponds, but the Mississippi here in town and  the sections above the Sartell and Blanchard dams all are exelent smallmouth fisheries.

      Was it a G.Loomis Conquest Mag Bass rod with a Shimano® Calcutta Conquest reel on it?  That would be mine!

      Nice to see you back @FishandFowl! Congrats and love the pic.

      I have snorkeled on head o lakes (off our beach) and it is usually ok.   Not Hawaii clear but 5 to 10 feet visibility....  OK, maybe 10 is a stretch, but pretty good.
