      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP)—New Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton(notes) didn’t get the warm welcome he anticipated when he made his unofficial debut at Invesco Field on Thursday night.

Orton was booed by the crowd of 13,402—the largest crowd ever to watch a Broncos practice—when he was picked off twice by free agent cornerback Andre’ Goodman(notes), the second of which was returned for a long touchdown.

Shanahan had to go. Marginal coach at best.

He'd fit in well in MN.

Call him marginal, and I am sure he'd show you his rings. He turned Elway into a champion, by figuring out passing the ball every play doesn't always work.

That was in a different era of NFL playcalling and as evidenced by his success, or lack thereof, in the last half dozen years he's clearly become a mediocre coach. We're in a era of pass first, run second and Shanahan didn't adjust. He keeps playing musical chairs with his RB's but that's not the issue.

MN is in the same boat with an outstanding runner in Peterson, but until they add some passing to their offense they are going nowhere and that is why Shanny would fit right in and remain a marginal coach for a terrible team, with terrible players, in a terrible stadium, with terrible fans, and terrible cheerleaders (© Dan Cole).

lol...broncos were 3rd in the league for passing yards per game last season....their passing rank has gone up every year the past few years.

you mean they have a [PoorWordUsage] hole defense and can't stop anyone so they lose.....all the teams that win have strong running games and good defenses...only pass happy team that wins anything is the pats.

pitts has dominated for years with a strong running game and real good D...big ben barely has to pass he just needs to make a few good plays....giants D and running game was real mean when they won it all...not like eli is some great passer.

saints throw the ball all day and can't win because of a junk D and not a strong enough run game.

all the vikes need to do is keep teams honest and make them respect the pass which we know forsure they don't do with tjack.

Pittsburgh had the 20th-something ranked run offense last year and Arizona was right there with them if not dead last, and in case you forgot they played each other in the SB. I think AZ's defense gave up a pile of points throughout the year too.....just like Denver.

Anyway, Shanahan is washed up and I think he's got some head issues. The guy is whacko.

Shanahan's demise was wanting to play GM as well with the personnel decisions. XO's, halftime adjustments, ect. he's more than enough coach. If you believe in games he has coached that he didnt, on occasion, out-coach the guy across the field from him you need to go dip your head in a washbasin full of icewater.

I dont agree with passing first running second. Running controls the clock and the flow of the game. You need to be good at both running and passing generally great teams do pass better but they control the clock with running. What good is getting a touchdown if you get it in 20 seconds and the other team controls the ball for the next 10 minutes and scores?

sounds like the 98 vikes lol....we would score almost everytime we touched the ball but then we'd let them score almost everytime they got the ball back....imagine that team having peterson and the defense we have now...that would be sick!

Shanahan had his time in the sun but is overrated IMO. I hope he stays away from Minnesota...he's a complete control freak!!

One of the best coaches in the NFL bar none to say other wise is well PREPOSTEROUS!

Of course coaching is overrated and its more about the players but we'd take Shanny any day and Sunday.

Shanahan could have any Job in that arises in NFL if he wants it.

Case closed.

Well, after running the Broncos into the ground and drafting like an [PoorWordUsage] the last three years, he certainly doesn't have the opportunity to coach the Broncos anymore. He didn't step down...he got canned just like he should have.

I'd take Cowher any day over Shanahan.

What I was referring to was when he first got there all they did was pass, and Elway never really had any help. He implemented years of good running games and they won the Super Bowl. They have turned back into a passing team and look what has happened to them- no longer making the playoffs.

i agree zamboni...i wasn't goin against anything you said i was responding to LMITOUT's statement of "That was in a different era of NFL playcalling and as evidenced by his success, or lack thereof, in the last half dozen years he's clearly become a mediocre coach. We're in a era of pass first, run second and Shanahan didn't adjust. He keeps playing musical chairs with his RB's but that's not the issue."

I suppose when you have Childress anything looks good right about now, even that psycho Shanahan.

Now that you mention it, he does have that Anthony Perkins look a.k.a. Norman Bates.
