Has anyone looked at the poll

Recommended Posts

on ESPN.com this morning? The question is would you rather have Brett Favre as your starting QB this season or would you rather have your current #1? Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Iowa are all voting in favor of having Favre.

I dont get it. We might not make it to the Super Bowl this year with Tavaris, but why do we think that Brett Favre is our automatic ticket to the show? I just cannot wrap my mind around the concept of Vikings fans wanting Brett Favre on their team and cheering for him.

I know that there is no chance in [PoorWordUsage] that the Vikes will acquire him, but I am not especially proud of my fellow Vikings fans at this point.

I don't like it. If you win the SB with him, then you never hear the end from the cheese heads. He's Decent, but work with T-Jack and get him to be a good QB and if not, then you better look elsewhere after this year.

Thinking about it a little bit, the question is kind of vague. There could be a quite a few Packer fans in Minnesota and the other states as well, but I still think there are a lot of Minnesota fans that want Favre to start for the Vikings and that is what sickens me.

I would take him!

As far as the cheeseheads loving it...they certainly would not...even if they say they will.

I would take him just to rub it in their faces, whether he wins or loses.

T- Jack is the main man in the coach;s eye, I think Childress will either sink or swim with T-Jack, Oh Well prolly his last year anyway.

PLANS TO RETIRE FAVRE’S JERSEY ON HOLD

Posted by Mike Florio on July 24, 2008, 2:13 p.m.

Packers president Mark Murphy announced moments ago at a press conference held in conjunction with the team’s annual shareholders meeting that plans to retire Brett Favre’s jersey are now on hold.

Earlier this year, the team had announced that Favre’s No. 4 would be retired on the first game of the regular season, on the evening of September 8 against the Vikings.

This development could mean several things. Maybe the Packers now think Favre will be playing for them on September 8. Or maybe he’ll be playing elsewhere, and they now want to wait for him to finish his career. Or maybe he’ll be wearing a white-and-purple jersey during said September 8 game.

Or maybe the Packers are just [PoorWordUsage] off at him for creating such a mess and they’re going to wait a few years before setting aside his number. It’s not like they’re going to issue it to someone else in the interim.

One good thing to come of all this grin , its almost worth loosing a draft pick wink

I'm against it! So lets take a pole on who wants Farve.

For those that want Favre T Jack is not that bad give him a chance we got rid of one reciever that couldnt hold the ball. We may have a defense that can back him up.

T-Jack has my vote.

Although I hope he develops (ugh, I'm tired of hearing that word) into a serviceable QB for us, he may not be the answer for this team. If that's the case then we'll move on to someone else.

I do not want all of the HASSLES and DISTRACTIONS that would come along with Favre. I also don't want to have to listen to every announcer oohing and gooing non-stop about Favre while I'm trying to watch my team this year.

Finally, I don't want to feel this knot in the pit of my stomach all year long from watching Favre wear purple. Your second cousin may be smokin hot, but you know darn well that it just ain't right for you to be looking at her that way.

I dont want Farve here in MN.. The way I see it, he is only good for this upcoming season only.. After that, he probably will retire... I dont see Vikings getting a superbowl ring with Farve anyways. Thus, I would rather have Vikigns train a younger qb to be our qb of the future then have Farve.

Do you think we could get Osama Bin Laden to come over to our team too?? Maybe we would have a better chance at winning the war!

Brent the player would be a good addition for a year or two and then maybe a good backup for another year or so. Brent the sideshow (Madden, ESPN, Packer fans, yada yada) would be a disaster for the Vikes. Unfortunately the sideshow comes with the player - I would pass on Brent Favre

Why do so many people move from WI to MN? Well, have you been to WI??

Now even their idol wants to come to MN!!

Yes, I would take him as a QB. Is he our answer? No. But T-Jack is not ready yet....

LOL, Imagine the mass suicide in Green Bay if Bret came to play for the Vikes!!!

As a Vikings fan I think you would have to put me on suicide watch if he ever played for us.

    • Them gun safe's ain't filling themselves I thought we all already had one.    
    • Yes, I know that. But the squirrel tail is the best material for jigs. My intent was to let you know the PREFERRED material for tying. It would also be the PREFERRED material for tying jigs. Marabou would also make dynamite jigs but would not be as durable.
    • The one I have only runs when the furnace is on.  In the summer I turn off the water that goes to it and turn down the humidistat.  There are no moving parts in mine.  In the winter a solenoid opens the water line and water trickles over a filter like thing.  Unless your rig is really old I suspect it works about the same way.  Be sure to keep the humidity in the house to the proper level.  You can get all sorts of guidance on line.
    • I was thinking more about the hair jigs.  
    • Generally fly tiers much prefer squirrel tail hair.  There are several long standing patterns that use squirrel but  I don't recall ever hearing anybody talk about raccoon tails. The body fur might be useful as dubbing material but there are too many other options to make it worth the trouble.  I doubt anybody would find possum fur of value as a fly tying material,   but then I'm no expert. And I know nothing about making spinning lures and have never sold a pelt to any fishing tackle company.  Squirrels are my pals.
    • I have hardwood in my new house and a drum style house humidifier - does the humidifier only run when the heat (furnace) is on. And if thats the case how do you run the humidifier in summer if its always going to be hot enough to not require the furnace to run?
    •    The electric choke dose not open and close according to engine temp.    The electric choke starts to warm up when you turn the ignition key on.  If you leave the key on but don't start the engine the choke will continue to warm and eventual open.  So a normal cold start with any carb regardless of choke type is to pump the peddle to get a shot of fuel from the accelerator pump.   If you had an automatic choke that peddle pump would set the choke too.   Now crank over the engine. If your electric choke is open before you've put power to it it'll need to be adjusted.  Loosen the set screws at the round black cap and rotate the cap till the choke closes.  Snug the screws back up.   Chances are you'll have to go back and fine tune this along with the high idle speed.     I'm sure you can find that procedure on the net somewhere.      The miss and cut out at higher RPMs could be a lot of things but could be related to the choke and specifically a choke butterfly closing by the increased vacuum.  Thats contrary to a choke being pulled open by vacuum but I've seen it happen when the choke isn't right when under load and vacuum drops with throttle butterflies wide open.    At any rate adjust the choke to fix the cold start issue and that might clear up the cut out.   If your still bogging, wire the choke open after the engine has warmed and try it under load.
