      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 .

Sigh, in case you just started following the Vikes, Tavaris Jackson was drafted in the Second round as a "project Quarterback" Tavaris was not supposed to not see the field until year 3 or 4. That is what a project QB is drafted for...a project for FUTURE use.

Guess what? The Vikes wet the bed year in and year out with a starting QB, so the project gets tossed to the wolves. But you armchairs can blame him all you want, but those are the facts and the snaps he has taken in the previous years have all been building up until this year, when he was set to start. Also guess what, he has gotten better every year, like a PROJECT qb is supposed to do.

I have been following the vikes for most of my life, I'm an old grey beard. I do not jump on or off band wagons. I am not really blaming T-junk on anything, It's 95% chilly's fault with the Q.B. situation we have. The most vital position on any team and he can't decide who to play

I won't judge him until after this year. He came a long way last year and it's reasonable to expect another jump this year.

Sure, the blind throw to the flat toward a squatting Pro Bowl corner in a tight playoff game **gulp** was tough to swallow and may be evidence that he just doesn't have "it".

Or maybe it's been burning him so bad and it was so jolting that he takes the next step.

We'll see.

It's just too bad because we have a once-a-decade running back and an aging defense. The window is closing, not opening.

And Philly got better this offseason.

I will say that Chilly's most fireable offense in his 3+ years is that his QB situation is just as muddy as the day he got here.

I'll bet you Rambis finds a point guard before Chilly gets a QB. Seriously.

Jackson has been struggling to make a completion. For being a project QB with a couple years under his belt he sure has been spending alot of time being flushed out of the pocket and not completing his passes. He relied mostly on Young on this drive.

What you see tonight is a clear picture of reality. Sage is the better QB. He can actually read a defense. I'm not really sure why its so hard for guys like fishin to see that Jackson just doesnt get it, the game is to fast for him. Where Sage got the ball out quickly, Jackson as usual hesitates and pumps and gets nowhere. You have to have more than physical talents to be an NFL QB.

Granted Jackson didn't have the starting receivers out there to throw to. But when you're constantly throwing over the receivers reach, a guy has some work to do.

I'll give Jackson credit for completing his 63% last year until the Eagles game. But that was a good sign he doesn't handle the pressure too well.

I will say one thing though, if you are trying to see if jackson has improved in the last year than why are they running so many draws and screens on passing downs??!! Let him drop back and try to read a defense and lets see if he has anything!

He isnt playing with the starters, but he is also playing against 2nd and 3rd string defenders.....

Jackson's first play where he buried the ball in the dirt at his feet says it all.

I see Chilly is wearing his playoff beard in the pre-season, anticipating that there won't be an opportunity to grow one in January.

Is it possible for Tavaris Jackson to complete 3% of his passes beond the line of scrimmage? On third down can he complete A pass beyond the first down marker. Don’t give me he is not working with the first string. He is right back in the forum he was in last year. Very few complete passes beyond THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE!

What a boring way to play football!

It also looks like he ate all the scraps in said dumpster...he's put on a few pounds in the offseason.

McKinnie looks like he lost some flab and actually put on some muscle mass. Is he the next to test positive for PEDs?

McKinnie on one side, Loadholt on the other, and what just happened a few minutes ago, false start by Ryan Cook? We haven't cut him yet? grin

Now the game's over, anyone think Booty will be the #2 guy behind Sage? For the little time he had, he looked more relaxed than Jackson.

    • Still have the cushions and bench seat to figure out, other than that the only thing I am waiting on is the termination cap for the furnace and I should be ready for ice plus a few rattle reels and rod holders.  Just in time as well, looks like the weather is going to be favorable over the next few weeks for us that like ice.  This is only a day house and will stay at my cottage, the bunk didn’t turn out as big as I would have hoped but my 11,8,5 year old's thoroughly think I am wrong, they love it.  I think for lights I am just going to buy some battery powered solar pucks to see how they work.  Being that I used house windows, I was worried about the nailing flange icing up so I cut some 4" angle and welded in some "V's" so the snow doesn't slide down and accumulate on top of the windows I will need to do the same for the termination cap.   Any input is appreciated.
    • Seasoning is not that big of an issue, just make your own rubs. The internet is full of recipes. It is a bit of work to smoke a pork butt or brisket depending on the smoker you have but with the right equipment it's not so much work as it is the time to prepare.  If you are one of those who are always in a hurry then you may want to just stick with steaks, burgers and hot dogs on the gas grill but if you have some time and want some gourmet food once in a while nothing beats good ole' southern BBQ, for me. The fact that we live in this predominantly Scandinavian region where ribs are usually baked, boiled or put in a crock pot and ketchup is too spicy is all the more reason it is imperative that I be at least semi-competent at BBQing. It is almost impossible to get good,  authentic, southern BBQ around here. You can however get a good steak just about everywhere you turn.
    • Looks like salt, pepper, maybe cayenne and garlic.   30 minute marinade isn't doing much.      Good pork doesn't need much more than salt and pepper and maybe a little sugar.  
    • Shot a 10 point with the slick trick raptor trick last week and was really happy with the results. Shot him at 2 yards so I waited for a quartering away shot to open up more of the vitals. Broadhead took a rib and a chunk of a vertebra going in 2 ribs,sternum and part of the leg going out. Slightly bent a blade otherwise no damage to the head. Only thing I didnt like was the entry hole in the hide was only 3/4" wide and that is because of the front deployment design. Once it was through the hide it opened to the full 2" cut. Blood trail at impact was 2 feet wide and he only went 25 yards.  I have taken 3 deer and a turkey this year with different heads. A whitetail doe and turkey with 3 blade rage chisel tip,both broadheads were broke after the shot. A mule deer doe with a griztrick 2,30 yard shot pass through. Great blood trail head was perfect and still sharp. And the buck with the raptor trick. 
    • Still on a roll from my 2016 season. 
    • Outlier. I will confess though that at least with brisket it is beef so by nature it won't need as much as pork in terms of seasoning.  
    • Texas style.  Salt and black pepper.   Put it in the smoker.  wrap it.    
    • @Big Dave2 Yeah, I have a couple acres in the woods with deeded water front access.  Had it for about 10 years now.  This camper has been stationary on it for about 6 of those years.
    • It can be but not without a quite a bit of work and seasoning which adds to the cost. I don't see too many people cooking brisket , pulled pork etc without adding a whole bunch of stuff to make it taste decent.
