Troy Williamson

Troy Williamsom is NOT an NFL wide receiver I am a big supporter of Viking football and of Brad Johnson and yes Brad stopped three drives today with his fumbles and interception but how many drives did Troy Williamson stop? Let this kid go. Buy out his contract, wave him let him get on with a job in the fast food industry. Anything where he does not have to catch something. Terrible, terrible.. Let anyone else be a wide out, just the threat of speed is not enough. Even the ball he caught for 4 yards bounced off the turf. He is not the reason the Vikes lost today but he sure did help. If the Viking coaching staff wants to let the team and the fans know they want to win then field a team. My labs catch more footballs then Troy does and they don't have any hands either!!

With his speed, would he maybe be a decent corner back? I don't think he will ever be a WR.

Arguably the worst 1st Round Draft Pick in Vikings history.

I doubt we would have scored anyway..... frown.gif

For once I'll agree with NAPA. Underwood ranks right up there with all time first round flop choices like Ryan Leaf... I'm talking NFL all around bad choices and he's right up there.

Oh and yes, Williamson still stinks!

I read in the paper that he had his eyes checked and that everything was ok--wow! I don't think that other teams even cover him anymore!

Big difference Willy no-Hands was picked 8th over all highest WR picked in Viking History and received big money, Underwood was selected 29th and received minimal Green backs......

so I guess if you think 29th overall is a first round pick I stand corrected.

I don't understand why they don't bring Carter off the practice squad and at least give him a shot. He had a pretty decent camp and seemed to be a playmaker. I guess Williamsons money/contract is the reason he's still out there. It's embarrassing.

Ya its a joke. They need to make a change somewhere along the line here. It is still early, but this next week is going to make alot of difference.

Your right about Carter they should get him in there. He must have really P.O. some coaches to not be playing if this stiff Williamson is playing. I keep waiting to see a ball passed to Williamson that just sticks in his face mask for a completion.

Williamson is single handidly responsible for half my swearing during a vikings game! I agree speed is a great weapon, but if you can't catch the ball???? I don't understand it...You would think the coaching staff see's the same thing we do?

I like the term "Gazelle"...Fast as a Gazelle and hands like hooves... grin.gif Perfect!!!!! grin.gif

Well if any luck the vikings can manage a decent draft pick and pick up some of the Stud wide recievers entering the draft, but the will probably screw up the draft like they do every year. Remember the time Tice let the clock expire on their 1st round pick.

I was at the game yesterday and from what I saw he was pretty much written out of the offense. He had another one of his classic go-between-the-hands and I think that was the last and only time he was thrown to. I could be wrong with these stats, but you could tell that he was not a big part of any Viking plans.

I'm pretty sure they only went his way once, and it went right through his hands like usual. It would be interesting to see some stats on how many drops he has this year vs. how many he's actually caught.

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On! 
    • monstermoose78
      Well monstermoose78 is done ice fishing around here for the year. Why you ask I fell through yes there was 28-30 inches of ice on the lake, but the shoreline nope. Went fishing with @Cret Jigs and we had fun fishing. I cut lots of holes and we got some good ones for the knife. Cret jigs brought a plank for the way out but on the way in I did not make it to the plank. Cret jigs helped me get my stuff the shore and out. I worry about the guy on the wheeler and they guy who used the plank to get out too. Thanks Cret jigs for a fun day.

      To all you guys who’ve been keeping us posted, thank you. I’m an islander so I don’t have much hope for the opener, but I’ve been reading all the posts (read them year around), including entertaining posts on new gear, and, again, thanks for letting a lot of guys know what’s going on there. The current weather, forecast and web cams, give me hope! I’m thinking I may get back home in three weeks, maybe four. Keep the sun shining, Dick

      What a difference a day makes, yesterday the dam was locked up tight and today it's roaring. Walleye should be running this week...
    • IceHawk
      Well this morning was officially the end of the ice season for me.   Its been a lot of days on the ice this winter and I have to admit I'm  a little burnt out.   It wasn't easy but it was time to end it.  Have to admit It was a sad moment putting the gear away but it was time as needed space today to put the boat in the garage   Learned a lot of new water and reacquainted myself with some old standbys. Fished 10 different counties this winter so definitely fished a lot of different areas.  Fished many species on the ice this winter so there never was a dull moment. Didn't take a ton of pics just a few need to take more just have never been a pic type of guy LOL.   Iced 7 walleyes between 26-28 3/4 all on local lakes.  So just a tip if you dedicate some time locally big eyes can be found. Fished panfish everywhere in the state highlight area for big fish being Becker and Ottertail Douglas counties. Biggest gill this winter was 10 3/4    many 10's came topside but couldn't break 11 this winter. Craps 15 inchers were tops. Good fish but had goals set at a 16.  Some things learned this ice season where number one lure for the eyes was a old school hammered silver Swedish pimple. It far out produced anything else.   Kenders tungsten where my mainstay for gills and crappies. The plastics of choice were power bait wishbones,  chigger frys, and Northland impulse mayfly's.  The catfish were a hoot and a  change of pace did well on Maynards slammers Glow red. The equipment and gear I was running and never failed me all season were Thorne Bros Rods- For eyes Perch sweethearts. For the Panfish I was running  Power Noodles, panfish sweethearts,  and my favorite the Tripwire. Reels Pflueger Presidents, Prestige ,and Supremes.. Did use some inlines also from 13 fishing The free falls where worth every penny. Ran a K-Drill 8 inch early and late and During the thick ice Ran my strikemaste Lazer.  Vexilar Electronics the old trusty FL18 my eyes underwater, Please Don't  think that I'm pushing these products because I'm sponsored by them I'm Not Just want to give a thumbs up and honest opinion on  some top notch equipment that has worked and weathered the storm of a good hardwater season. Realize we all work hard for our dollars and I can honestly say these products where worth every penny and never let me down!  Well Off to the Garage to start getting the boat ready for the Next season  By the Way big Shout out to some of the best Anglers I had the chance to share the ice with this season from FM.  Thanks  Borch,  Bass Thumb,  Moose,  Eyeguy, Rick G , Tom Sawyer for shareing some ice time with me.  Hopefully I get to meet and fish with a few other FMer's this summer or next hardwater.  We had some great Times great laughs and managed to even ice a few fish   Looking forward to having a few summer outings in the future.  BYE BYE Ice Hello open water

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish! Cliff

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/
    • Horseshoe_Don
      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don
