Season opener!!!!!! MN vs GB

134 posts in this topic

Well the day has finally got here, the MN Vikings season opener. I have been very impatiently waiting for this day for 9 months now, lets hope I am not dissapointed! My prediction for tonights game is that T-Jack is going to supprise the Packers, and he is going to come out passing and will do well. T-Jack will get 260 yards passing 2 passing touch downs, and will run in for another. Peterson will have 175 yards total, 130 rushing, 45 receiving 2 TDS.

Final score Vikes 35 GB 17

Go Vikes!!!

24-13 Pack.

Jackson will be lucky to get 120 yards passing MAYBE 1 TD.

Peterson combined 150 yrds.

Time to go crack a beer that has been on ice waiting in my truck since lunchtime.

I hate to sound negative but after watching a quarter and a half, they don't look to be any better than their last season. It never changes and I really don't believe that Childress or Jackson can make this team go.

I have been waiting for Childress to prove me wrong and I would be more than happy if he did but with all the penalties and poor play, its the same ol.

I think the refs need to tighten there belts and stop throwing the flags. Its getting ridiculous when both teams have had flags 3 plays in a row and were not even out of the first quarter yet! lET EM' PLAY!

Thoughts at halftime: Tarvaris Jackson has shown some improvement from last year in that he is throwing the ball away or taking a sack tonight where last year he would have made a bad throw for an INT. The bad news is he still isn't showing any accuracy on the passes he does get off.

That isn't all Jackson's fault, though. McKinnie is suspended for four games, but the Vikings pass protection should still be better than it is. Tarvaris has been hurried, hit, chased out of the pocket, and generally hasn't had time to set his feet before throwing. The pass blocking has got to improve in the second half if the Vikings are going to hang in there.

Some people suggested Minnesota didn't attend to needs on the o-line because Zygi was spending on the defense. If so, where is the pressure Allen, Williams, and co. were supposed to bring on Rodgers?

It sticks in my purple-and-gold craw to say this, but Rodgers looks more prepared to start in the NFL than does Jackson.

On the bright side, when Adrian Peterson can break through the nine-man fronts, he is showing last year wasn't a fluke. The run defense has mostly kept Grant bottled up. But, the Vikings have got to pass the ball successfully and put pressure on Rodgers if they want to win.

A blocked field goal, ending a drive where the Packers moved the ball down-field pretty easily, is a good way to go in to the locker-room...but can The Purple build on that in the second half?

Ah well...GO VIKINGS!!!

I refuse to make any more excuses for Jackson. It's do or die time for him.

Is the "wow" really needed in that statement? It's not all that surprising.

I can't imagine why I wanted Favre for a year or 2...LOL.... grin

I'm not panic-ing just yet after 2 Quarters playing in one of the toughest places to play in the NFL against a 13-3 team. I'll leave that up to you guys for now... smile

T-Jack has been out for 3 1/2 weeks.

Go Vikes!

Against a team who had about eight penalties in their first two drives. Their OL is killing them tonight.

I truly HATE instant reply. If that wasn't a catch I don't know what is.

That's one way to keep the OL off the field.

    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
    • We are on Lake Edward at WildWoods RV resort just north of Merrifield, MN. It is nice just driving up, unlocking it, playing for the weekend and locker her back up and leaving the frig on.  They let Atheists and Jesus freaks all in!
    •   My wife and I are starting to think about parking ours someplace. I'm tired of trying to get reservations and having to hook and unhook and all that goes with a weekend of camping. Plus I would like to have the toys available like 4-wheeler and boat.   We are looking at places up north. We know several people and like the Emily-Outing-Remer-Hill City area. I think you a further west, right? Brainerd area maybe?
