      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 .

Teddy goes down

Recommended Posts

The sound you hear is all Vikings fans holding their breath.  

Reports are the Bridgewater went down with what looks to be a serious knee injury in practice today.  Practice was called off the rest of the day and an ambulance came on the field to haul Teddy off the field.

Great! :(

Well maybe we can get that Kaepernick guy since he may be out of a job soon and he has a lot of bleeding heart fans in this state it sounds like! ;)

May be we can get Peyton Manning out of retirement? He's just wondering around in his jammys. :lol:

Do the vikings have the 50% off a Papa Johns pizza promotion after a Vikings win?  If so bringing in Peyton might be a natural fit.

Season over. 

My honest take is that they may as well trade Peterson while he still has some value, and start looking for a new long-term solution at QB. I know the Purple kool-aid drinkers would mess their pants, but it's the wise thing to do. They have no shot this season.

I'm not sure what value AP would have at this point though. Teams will bring in new guys to add depth but you don't see major trades in attempt to bring in big name talent at starting positions this close to the start of the season.  There is just too much to learn system wise to pluck a guy off another team and insert him as your feature running back and you aren't going to trade for AP and take on his salary to make him anything less than your feature running back.

Had you known this is what was going to happen back around the draft then yes trading him would probably have been a smart move. However, now you'll be lucky to get a mid round pick for him and saving the money won't really make any difference this year.  As an organization in a new stadium you're better off holding on to at least one star player that can give fans something to cheer for during what looks like it might be a lost season.

Hmmm, sounds vaguely familiar but I forget what this is about. Would you mind refreshing my memory? :confused:

Our bet, but that's alright.  You can finally come out and cheer for the purple since limit is gone, we won't tell!!

Yes, I assume it was a bet. Could you elaborate on the conditions of the bet?

Trading for Bradford was a gutsy move for Spielman. Obviously he has injury concerns but the times he has gotten hurt would have happened to any QB. 

He has the best defense and best running back he has every played with and lots of talent on offense. He is a better fit for Norv's offense that Teddy was and right now they are a better team with Bradford than they were with Teddy. This was a good deal and worth what they gave up considering the other options they had.

I agree, there were certainly worse options out there and with Dallas holding the advantage of priority in picking up players who were cut, the Vikings really had to do something other than wait for a QB to get cut and see who was left after Dallas made their pick.

I like this better than any of the other options. Sitting on Hill wasn't a viable option. We could have still won some games but no way he would have been healthy the whole season.

No doubt I mean at least we didn't end up with butt fumble

Still think Teddy was the answer? As brutal as Hill was today, Theodore only had 5 games all last season with more passing yards.

Still think it was all the offensive line's fault that Theodore was sacked so much? I don't think Tennessee had 1 sack today did they?

Way to go Viks! I'll take Hill all season-if!

We can get a New younger Running back that can average more then 1.4 yards a game and a Offensive coach who knows when to make a change or sit someone down! Geeez! :crazy:

My Grandma can make 1.4 yards a game, and shes been dead for 10 years! :whistle:

You do realize that almost half of the offensive line is new right? Adding Boone really makes a difference on the left side. I expect Kalil will have a MUCH better year, not that last year was bad for him, it was better than 2 years ago when he was flat out terrible. That Smith on the right side I could take or leave. The line did great in pass protection, but running the ball was awful.

So, it was Teddy's fault that he was the most pressured QB in all of the NFL last year? doh kay.

BTW, Hill wasn't that bad. He missed a few guys, but overall I think he played pretty good. I would have much rather had Teddy in there, but Hill didn't cost us the game, didn't make mistakes and made some decent throws.

Yes, he held the ball longer than almost any other NFL QB last year. The OL can only block so long for you.

Um, no. That QB stat measures statistical average time to throw and grades the QBs based on their ability to get rid of the ball within that time. Teddy was the most pressured QB in the NFL last year (over 39%). If he had league-wide average pressure rating (25%), Teddy would have ranked just below Rodgers.

I know one thing, Teddy's leg is in better shape right now than Maniziel's NFL career.

    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden.
