I would love to have Brett play for the Vikes as I would bet he has some very good years left.

I think Farve could help the vikings also. Just two problems. One I'm still not a fan of favre even though he is a good quarterback (to bad he has a healthy ego to go along with his talent.) And two, the Vikings didn't give up enough in the mock trade (ala Hershel Walker) grin.gif

If Favre ever came to the Vikes ( NEVER WILL HAPPEN ) we would have to get the Packers 1st & 2nd round draft picks for the next 3 years just for taking him . Even at that I would be a Lions fan until he left .

I think you're the only one here with a biased opinion of Farve. Thinking he is God gift to football. I and many others have stated he is a good QB just not the best ever like you seem to think. Me being biased would be saying something like Fran Tarkenton is the best QB ever. Which many Vikings fans may think but I don't. Just because I'm a Viking fan I know their are better players on other teams.

I think Favre would have a few years left if he had more talent around him, Offensive line to protect him better and a good runing back and better WR's and he doesn't have that with the Packers. This will be his last year with the pack, I think he will finally retire.

If Trent Green is only worth a 4th, Farve is worth a 2nd or 3rd at best.

All Brad Johnson needed was 3 great wide receivers, a great offensive line, a really good tight end, a great running back, a good blocking fullback, a smart offensive coordinator, a brilliant head coach, and a stronger arm, and he could have lit up the score board last year.

Is that too much to ask for as a veteran QB?

I think not.

I'm just having fun with you guys Slot.....My comment was based on the fact that a Vikings fan thought Favre could help and he would welcome him, not that he is the best quarterback ever (that is the other thread were I said that grin.gif )...........I think Favre warrants a better trade than that though

We could keep the same guys on our team right now and put Favre on the team and we still wouldn't make the playoffs IMO. I don't even think Peyton could bring us to the playoffs this year. So to give up whatever it would take to get Favre for one year would be stupid. I don't care how good a QB you are if you don't have time to throw you will stink. We can run the ball because the left side of the line can block but it takes a whole line to block to get a pass off.

Good point Slot, but you also have to think about what a player can do with out doing anything.....ie. Moss, T.O., Vick, McNabb(a few years ago). You have to play them honest and you have to respect what they might do. Moss and T.O. get double teamed and open up somebody else. Vick and McNabb can run all over you at any time. Favre is still good enough that you have to respect his arm and his ability to create a play. I do agree with you and your point about the line. It will be evident this year in Oakland.

I agree with that except for the QB position. Unless it's a Vick type running QB. Then you always have to respect that. Favre has a big arm but it takes time to get off a long pass. So no blocking no long passes thus it would take Favre/Manning/Brady out of the equation. QB's that are statues need time. By the way...what players did Moss open up last year? The Raiders QB's had no time so it didn't matter.

I'll give you that, Moss didn't open anyone up because they didn't have anyone one to open up. Plus no QB on top of it......you are absolutly correct about the line, thats why the Browns made Joe the second pick, it is one of the most important portions of the team. The Packers showed some improvment last year and will look better this year. The Vikings will be able to run again this year, especially if Peterson stays healthy. Will either team be able to pass? Only time will tell.

POLICE REPORT:

Brad Childress's House was Egged

Minneapolis police reported that some individual attempted to "egg"

Brad Childress's house last night.

An empty egg carton was recovered at the scene. Two eggs hit Mr. Childress's house, 3 eggs went over his house and hit his neighbor's back door,

2 eggs hit the houses of each of his next door neighbors, and the remaining 3 eggs were found broken on the ground near the carton from where the

individual threw them.

Looking at what was hit, police officials say they are considering Tavarius Jackson as the primary suspect.

I was going to say the last time I heard that joke it was Dante. I'm sure the next old joke Shiner will throw out is the vikings have terrorist on their team with pictures of Moss aka Osama Bin Complainin, Dante aka Osama Bin Fumblin, and Denny Green, Osama Bin Losin.

Even with all the Vikings jokes at least we can say we don't have a brown streak on our goal post. Something we can actually thank Moss for.

Here you go Shiner a couple of jokes for you:

Q:Why do the trees in Milwaukee lean to the south?

A:Because Green Bay blows and Chicago sucks.

Q:What is the diffrence between a Packer fan and a baby?

A:The baby will stop whinning after awhile.

Q:Did you here about the Packer fan that died at a pie eating contest?

A:The cow kicked him in the head!

Q:What do you call a 350 pound Packer fan?

A:An anorexic!

Q:What do you call a beautiful girl in Green Bay?

A:A tourist.

      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! 
    • 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 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
