Doss

I don't know much about the guy, he might be a great addition to the team, but don't you thing we have enough safeties on the team? Do you think they are setting up for a trade or something?

Before we signed Doss every mock had us taking Landry(safety.LSU). I think that we signed Doss so we can trade down several spots and pick up an extra pick from whomever we trade with. I think our team has too many needs for us to trade up because it would cost us too many picks. If we trade down 5 spots we can pick up an extra late second or third round pick.

There are a lot of trade rumors going on right now with the Vikings. Some say we'll trade our pick to NE for their two first round picks. That way NE can get Landry and we can address the wr and db positions in the first round. Probably not going to happen though. Another rumor is trading with Buffalo and getting their first and second round picks. Buffalo is interested in AP. Will it happen? Only God knows. Nobody can predict the NFL draft.

Why wouldn't a guy want to return to a Super Bowl-winning team? Something's not right.

He had an ACL problem last year and missed a bunch of games , maybe him leaving wasn't an option . On the other hand , did anybody hear Sludge & Hawk interview B-Wade this morning . Sounds like a good guy and has his head in the right spot . Says he is a Hines Ward type of reciever . Was honest about his short commings , which is nice for a change . Lastly , won't Doss have to fight for a spot ?

They better be sure about Doss if this means they are trading down or passing on Landry. All accounts are this guy is one of the best safeties to come out in the past few years.

They signed Doss for one million for one year. It's probably just a competition thing because that's what Childress likes. It could just be a smokescreen or a move to get someone to trade up to our pick to get Landry. I wouldn't mind having Landry in purple.

You have Tank Williams coming back this year too. I dont think safety is one of the top 2 needs for this team.

Wonder if any of them might be tried at cornerback. I think our nickel and dime coverages should have some good players in the game with this kind of depth. One could play up on the line to cover the short stuff or blitz.

I don't mind this pickup at all. Greg Blue, shoulder, Rondell Whitiker, arm, and Tank Williams knee .. still might have some problems. This is a move for depth, he held his starting job for 4 years before getting hurt last year. I hear he's a hard hitter, but could be a little better in pass coverage. Unless they guarenteed his contract,They could still cut him before the start of next season if his knee is too messed up still. nothing lost.

I personally like this move. Mike Doss was a beast when he played at THE Ohio State.

      Ice is going fast!  The sun is high and powerful, we're flirting with 70 degrees and the forecast looks promising. I'm feeling pretty confident there will be a lot more open water then most are expecting.  
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      There will certainly be some areas of open water to fish by the opener! Pike Bay ice is deteriorating fairly fast now. Other small shallow bays are probably not far behind. Cliff

      18 days to opener,  I hope there is some open water we can fish.  our group can't reschedule due to work issues.  Come on Sun/Rain!!!  Our golf courses are just opening up today!!  smh

      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!

      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 to 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
