      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.

oopps

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.

    • yes i did i messaged him directly outside of the post
    • Looks like the Hawks might be without Crawford the rest of the season.   http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2018/01/16/report-blackhawks-concerned-crawford-could-miss-remainder-of-season/
    • We use a line voltage thermostat, with it set in the "cool" position.  Once it hits the set temp the thermostat kicks the fan on, until it gets below the set point.  Works pretty well.  
    • Strange I received our notification for WI yesterday but the page does not show any update. Either way WI permits are out. Already planning and getting blinds ready for this spring    
    • I have not used one, but they have attracted my attention. I have a wheelhouse but think this would be a better early ice option. Surprised at how pricey they are, but aluminum must be spendy! I think your ability to pull with the snowmobile will vary with snow depth, slushy conditions etc..... Studs will probably be helpful?  If you go that route, report back how it works!
    • I finally used it I was just testing it out getting the feel of things so didn't follow a recipe just cut up some Yukon gold potatoes zucchini onion and threw in a bunch of chicken breast. 1 can of cream of chicken and 2 cups of beer. Actual cook time after pressurized 12 mins. Some of the most tender chicken I have ever had.   Next day I made some jasmine rice and cubed some chicken breast and coated with sesame chicken sauce. Didn't think the sauce would steam good on its own so I put half cup of water as well. Then drained liquid when itt was done cooking and tossed them in more sauce before eating.   All in all I like it so far pretty easy stuff.
    • Well the switch closes at 115 degrees F so you will have to place it somewhere that It reaches that temp when you want it to turn on. I would say inside on the sheet metal top vent would do the trick if you wanted it hidden If not I guess just stick it on the outside of the vent hole. Or I am guessing it will close if you just stick it on the side of the heater just have the flat part of the switch flush with it I know my heater gets pretty hot pretty much anywhere on the metal basically I would take a bbq thermometer and find a place that hits 115 when you would want the fan to kick on.    As for the wire go to the hardware store and get some high temp like this its rated to 392 F https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KCPL3GC/ref=sspa_dk_detail_2?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B01KCPL3GC&pd_rd_wg=NEE9O&pd_rd_r=NHQPZ29KWH6QT57M7M41&pd_rd_w=aiXqh   If you need something higher rated https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KCPL3GC/ref=sspa_dk_detail_2?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B01KCPL3GC&pd_rd_wg=NEE9O&pd_rd_r=NHQPZ29KWH6QT57M7M41&pd_rd_w=aiXqh That's rated for 482 F    
    •     I guess when I made that statement I was wrongly assuming it would be much colder than that. In that case, it should be a nice October game just like a couple years ago at TCF.
