      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Offense could change for Vikings

Recommended Posts

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP)—Darrell Bevell won’t reveal the changes he’ll make in the post-Brad Childress era. This much is certain: the Minnesota Vikings’ offense finally is Bevell’s baby.

The Vikings fired Childress on Monday and replaced him on an interim basis with defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, who will play a far smaller role than his predecessor on Bevell’s side of the ball.

“Every play went through coach Childress and everything was finalized through him,” Bevell, the Vikings’ offensive coordinator, said Friday. “So, this week, it was a little bit different. I still kept coach Frazier informed, told him what we were doing, how we felt like we should attack them. But it wasn’t like, ‘I don’t like that, throw that out’ or ‘I like this, put that in.’ There wasn’t any of that.

Childress called the Vikings’ offensive plays in 2006 before turning over those duties the following season to Bevell, a former college quarterback who broke into the NFL as an offensive assistant with the Packers in 2000.

However, Childress, who favored a run-first version of the West Coast offense, only partly relinquished control. He was heavily involved in game-planning meetings, held a play sheet on the sideline and communicated constantly with Bevell on game days, at times relaying the precise play he wanted to call.

“As long as it’s sound and I can present it to coach Frazier and he likes the logic behind it, then I don’t believe he’s going to veto anything at this point,” the 39-year-old Bevell said. “I think he has confidence in what our offensive staff is able to put together.”

That doesn’t mean Frazier will ignore the Vikings’ offense. He met with his offensive assistants shortly after accepting the interim position and made clear the adjustments he wants, beginning Sunday against the Washington Redskins.

“We have to continue to hammer some things, because it’s a little bit different than what we have talked about in the past,” said Frazier, who declined to elaborate. “I do feel like they are buying into what we are trying to get accomplished. It should bode dividends for us.”

After ranking fifth in total offense and second in scoring in 2009, the Vikings have plummeted to 18th in yards (336.8 per game) and a tie for 29th in scoring (17.2) during the team’s 3-7 start. They’ve also committed 25 turnovers, including Brett Favre’s(notes) NFL-worst 17 interceptions and five lost


Favre, who is close with Bevell from their days in Green Bay, on Wednesday said he preferred to strip down the playbook and focus on executing a smaller number of plays. But it’s up to Bevell, with Frazier’s guidance, to decide how to fix the offense for the final six games.

“I’m not worried about (people) saying, ‘Hey, this is Bevell’s offense now,’ and ‘Let’s see what it’s going to look like,”’ Bevell said. “All those things, those are good questions. I just want to be able to win. I don’t care if we run it 50 times or (pass) 50 times, whatever it is. I just want to be able to get a win.”

I liked what I saw from the offense yesterday....less predictable. ANYONE on here predict that bootleg run by Favre yesterday??????????????????????? grin

Those 2 long passes in a row early in the game had to help the short game later. The Vikes actually looked like they were having fun playing the game.....haven't seen that in a while.

Hopefully things continue to develop for the Vikings. They still need a lot of work on the straight passing game. In obvious passing situations, pressure was still getting to Favre and receivers were not getting open. I did like the use of play action and the draw, and that they didn't abandon the run after Peterson went out.

To me the first drive of each half looked very good, so I think they had a good plan coming onto the field. They still need a little work adjusting to a defense outside of the locker room though.

I liked our Offense and I liked Fraziers philosophy, pound the rock and play tough defense. I didn't look but I'd guess about 30 rushing attempts. He wants AP to touch the ball more, me too. I think he would of had a monster day yesterday if he didn't get hurt.

    • some people are bad apples that give the sport a bad name, I as a snowmobiler have respect for driveways. FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone. trail groomers actually do you a favor by knocking down the bank, to keep it level. unless your groomer was not well trained, they will not groom over your driveway.
    • If code allows post frame for residential construction then by design you don't need a block foundation. 
    • Perfect that awnsers my question. Why spend $250 when I could spend $150 on a new lazer bit and cuts faster, it’s more durable but still about same weight and a chipper but. Really a no brainer. What are you seeing for drilling time with that 8 inch lazer?
    • From my experience one of my only complaints with the Kdrill is how slow it drills. It more than gets the job done but my laser 8” is faster.
    • So I’ve always fished 8 inch holes but really why? Most Anything can fit through a 6 inch hole anyway. I was thinking maybe for next season of getting a 6 or 8 inch I drill and putting it on my 1.5hp solo. Right now it’s about 24lb which is light but with the k drill it would be lighter yet. My question is would I be getting any more speed out of a k drill vs regular SM chipper bit? And then I can invest in a nice Milwaukee fuel and there we go.
    • Hi there, new here. Found this place because of this older topic.  We are planning a pole barn home on a slab. This is the 1st one in our township and the inspector seems unsure about the requirements for the slab "foundation" and insulation. When we started last year the old inspector said if the poles are through the frost level (42") you can just lay down a flat 4" slab. The new inspector seems to think it needs a foundation. Not finding much info online for this specific build. Plan as of right now. 4" radon pea gravel and barrier, 4" rock, 2" foam, heat tubes, steel mesh with 4" concrete over that. Someone here know the county (Isanti) spec for something like this? Township overrules county.  Thanks.
    • BB gun?  Hows that for a 1st post?   
    • Ahh. Thanks for your story PRO-V. That’s what I’m trying to avoid. Plus it’s about 400 feet of hose to get to the banks...
    • A couple years ago I just got done plowing my driveway with the wheeler. Along comes an adult snowmobiler with his kid following behind. Guy crosses driveway and stops on top of opposite bank. Then he guns his machine sending all the snow back in the driveway. This is not a trail, just random ditch riders. Well I was outside and saw him do it. I jumped in my truck and cut him off at a road crossing 2 blocks away. I jumped out and royally chewed his azz and told him what a bad example he was setting for the kid. I think he got the message. For awhile after that I sprayed water on the banks to freeze them. No respect, they wouldn't want you doing that to their driveway.
