      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's Back!!

Recommended Posts

Teddy was classic Teddy in his admittedly very limited passing situations, indecisive. Even the announcers used that word to describe his interception.

Teddy has always been indecisive and not aggressive enough.

He looked like a fish out of water.  I was hoping for better for him.

I was watching his face on close ups for some kind of smile or excitement at all. Just a Deer-in-headlights stare! :(

Sam Bradford was gone, apparently, but now he’s back

Is he going to be brought back to the active roster?

By Christopher Gates@Gates_DN  Dec 16, 2017, 1:13pm CST

 

We really haven’t seen much of Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Sam Bradford this season. There was his brilliant performance in the regular season opener against New Orleans, and his ill-fated attempt to come back from a knee injury against the Chicago Bears. The team placed him on injured reserve in early November (the move corresponded with Teddy Bridgewaterbeing activated from the PUP list), and at that point, Bradford just sort of disappeared.

Until today, according to Courtney Cronin of ESPN.

If the teams success is riding on Case’s shoulders and they wind up being the first team in NFL history to play at their home field - and they win: There will be a movie made.

We may just be watching the trailers now.

I’m not a big football fan to begin with but the last year (or two) has been a pretty darn good story.

My wife and I were talking today about how we haven’t really had a good coach since Bud Grant.  I looked up the coach history for the team and will stand by that.  At least for as much as I know about football.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford was placed on injured reserved earlier this season. He is eligible to return in the playoffs and is back in the facility per reports.

You don't have to like him but not many coaches in the history of the NFL did more than Dennis Green did. I would say he was a "good" coach.

That may be.  Like I said, I’m not into football THAT much so I’m basing my opinion on my gut and seeing the Vikings perform reliably for a change.

I’ve actually had personal interactions with Green when he was coaching here.  He was OK but I wasn’t in awe of him.  I guess it’s more accurate to say I’m neutral there.

It was his first plays in two years. Not even hit yet Teddy will be fine. Don't worry Shurmur and Case will be in Cleveland next season :) . I have no problem if Teddy ends up being out QB next season but you never know. Next year’s free agents for QB will be nuts , not saying the big names leave but it's going to be fun to watch who ends up where and who spends money on some old arms.

I'll take Teddy next year and ride Case into the play offs.

If Case is smart he will follow Shurmur were ever he goes but not to Cleveland.  I don't he wil be  that stupid again.

Why Teddy next year instead of Case? Are you not happy with good QB play?

I think Teddy is a better QB. Case is making the most of Shurmur's system.

I hate to see what the vikings offense looks like when they both are gone.

Generally speaking, such streaks in the NFL are an anomaly and players fall back into their typical play (see 2015 Cam Newton Vs 2016/2017).

Keenum.png.1ee2f1b23a4e7805612f7bf88a129d5c.png

That's the first 33 games of Case's career (which is up to the bye week of this season), and the last 6 games (after the bye week this year). You wouldn't want to give Case a Matt Flynn type contract only to see him fall back to the top line kind of stats.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    •   I think you are right with the moderation of Facebook pages.  With forums (in general), it seems like moderators just delete individual posts, or ban certain users.  It seems like what happens more often than not with the Facebook posts is that they'll start off with good info, but 20 mins later some Richard comes along, and the admins just delete the entire post rather than delete certain comments.  Forums are still very much alive and well, and have a tremendous value with being able to retain content....I just don't see them being replaced by social media (in it's current format).  
    • MMMM Taste like chicken ,,, X we need to get together for a ride this year 
    • Threaded spaghetti hotdog bites. Simple, easy, and delicious. All you need is ketchup.
    • Yes del, they have quick pizza delivery  in town, right Dave? . We're having chili dogs n fries. But tacos or grilled cheese are tough to beat..
    •   Bear that's where you and I (and 100% of NHL Players, Coaches, Owners) disagree,  we want a Cup win and you want a good reg season record.  MN N Stars went to a Stanley Cup final and the Wild have made it to the quarters a couple times I believe so last year was not even close to the best season in MN hockey history. Reg Season means NOTHING! They could make the playoffs this year...lots of hockey left to be played and lots of teams closely fighting for spots at the moment which makes it interesting.
    • Lets frame these things for context, we were coming off our best season in MN hockey history, however we have been healthy for exactly 1 game this season and whether you like it or not that is relevant. If you asked him again I doubt you get the same response, or I doubt he said the same thing going into last year. And honestly who even says that? Not even the pens owner is that dumb, they frame it as a goal for the season. Either way its pointless to argue these things, we don't even know if they are in the playoffs let alone going on a deep run. They are playing better as of late so lets hope that sticks around. 
    • Headed out from the house Sunday morning and put on 50 miles.   Looped south from Cloquet then west and back around.  Trails need snow to say the least.  Not another sled on the trails so that was nice but had to keep an eye out for rocks/sticks. Also had 3 turkeys run across the trail right in front of me, I had design's on the last one, but braked at the last minute.  I had visions of fresh turkey in the smoker LOL. With another warm up late this week and no snow, not sure if they will be rideable next weekend or not til we get more white stuff.  Felt good to get a few miles on anyway.
    •   I’ve only heard about the FB banter being obnoxious but haven’t seen it cuz truly, I stay away from FB completely.  My wife fills me in.   What that stuff sounds like is some of the stuff that got moderated out of this/these forums.  That was the intent anyway.  Yes, there were cases of over moderation but honestly, forums in general were just getting popular and it was a learning curve for both posters and site Admins.  I think things are more relaxed now.   I used to think using screen names rather than real names let the keyboard cowboys feel more reckless but maybe not?  Just crazy how some people have NO manners in public.   I’m still hanging in here and hoping activity keeps improving.  I’ve checked out other sites besides FB and still come back here. It’s my home forum.  And it will as long as people are interested in helping others.  You get what you give.  That’s just a constant in life.
    • What do you have to work with?   And what do you like?     How about pasta carbonara? takes noodles, parmesan type cheese, eggs, ham, bacon, or proscuitto.    Spaghetti is preferred noodle.   Lots of other pasta dishes if you are into pasta.   The breakfast for dinner thing, above, is always good.   Pancakes, eggs, waffles, french toast, etc.    Baked potatoes with toppings like butter, cheese, bacon bits, broccoli, whatever.    Chicken ala king over potatoes or rice (or in form of pot pie) if that isn't too much like soup or stew Fried breaded chicken strips (panko bread crumbs are the best but regular crumbs work too) jucy lucy sliders...http://www.startribune.com/party-with-a-super-bowl-theme-that-reflects-this-year-s-minnesota-locale/469764663/ Tater tot hotdish (if you have tots laying around)  Mexacali meat pie That's my list.  Or order pizza if there is a place.
    • You get a lot less followers when people finally learned that running their mouth on a public forum about where when and how to catch fish only got them more company at the boat ramp or on their honey hole. Not to mention added a lot of fishing pressure to some bodies of water and nearly ruined a few. And not just small lakes and rivers.
