      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 .

T-Jack

Recommended Posts

Childress finally opened things up in the 2nd half and its just as i've been saying, if Jackson is put in a position to succeed he can be a decent QB. His first half was rotten. In the 2nd half he was allowed to throw the ball on something other than 3rd and 7 and threw it well. Hopefully Childress will carry that mentality through the season now. He still could get more creative as Jaworski stated, but the 2nd half was an improvement. 2 TD drives and another drive that Jackson took them down the field on his arm and for some reason on a 3rd and 3 decided to run it but still got the FG. He sure took a beating tonight but stood in there well in the 2nd half. It would have been interesting if the vikings wouldnt have given up the punt return. What a killer in a close game. Their schedule doesnt get any better, they better get things shaken out or a 1-4 start could be in the future. Anyone else get annoyed with Kornheiser? He couldnt leave the Rodgers/Favre comparison alone for 1 segment.

Kornhole is the worst!

I really don't agree with your assessment of T-Jack though, he couldn't hit on ANY of the long passes as he was horribly innacurate and threw into coverage multiple times and when we needed him most he threw an INT right to a Packer for an EASY game ender. He's not improved at all...

I will give some credit to Jackson in that he had someone in his face quite a bit on the passing downs and still got the ball off without lobbing it up like he has in the past. I couldn't see if his eyes were closed or not though. grin Either the Vikings OL wasn't doing very well, or the Packers DL was dominating because they were on him quite a bit.

In the 2nd half he did things that we've not seen before, mainly in the consistency area. He was much more composed and threw some lasers for completions. As i've said it helps any QB to be put in a position to succeed. In the 2nd half he was in a much better position to succeed and i thought he threw the ball pretty well facing some serious heat and against what is one of the best defenses in the game. If Chilly continues to give him those opportunities this team will be much better off and Jackson will have a nice season.

the viks will get no where with him as our QB. Im sorry the guyu can run, but when you cant throw the ball, and others know that, its tough for AP and Cheester to run.

I wouldn't count him out just yet. He did pretty well tonight considering who they were playing. The Packers have a very good defense. I thought for the most part the Pack were playing very good coverage, and couple that with good pressure on the QB, nobody is going to have a very good day.

I thought T-Jack did alright tonight -- not great but was anyone expecting him to be great? He had a nice 2nd half, good enough to win, and like some others have pointed out he didn't have much pass protection on a lot of plays.

We NEED a tight-end, Shiancoe is terrible. On the interception that ended the game T-Jack was throwing to Shiancoe and it looked like Shiancoe cut off his route (Jaws called him on it). Plus there was the Shiancoe tip that took a touchdown away from Berrian and the Shiancoe drop that Chili reviewed and lost a time out for. Seems like Shiancoe is in the middle of plays that go the wrong way for the Vikes in every game they play.

I am not sure Tarvaris Jackson will ever be a decent NFL QB, and tonight showed why. Jackson looked horrible in the first half, but as I and others pointed out the line was not doing a good job protecting him. No QB can consistently make good throws when his pocket never forms, and the pass rush did not give him time to set his feet and make a good throw. I also praised him in another thread for making better decisions, such as taking the sack or throwing the ball out of bounds rather than lobbing one up there for grabs.

In the second half, Jackson looked better, as did his o-line's pass-blocking. Several of his good passes were dropped by receivers, which is obviously not his fault. At times, though, Jackson was still off, especially on long balls where he and his receivers never have looked in sync. The final INT was one of those times, where it looked like Shiancoe (I agree, he stinks) and Jackson were running two different plays.

I believe Jackson was rushed in to the starter job too early last year. He was a D-IAA QB who should have had another year of carrying the clipboard before seeing action in a meaningful game. That said, he does need to make good throws consistently, and Jackson has not yet done that. I say give him this season (not just the first half tonight) to show he can make use of his talent.

And anyone who thinks putting John David Booty in now is a good idea was not only not paying any attention this pre-season, when Booty was horrible, but they were not paying attention to the Vikings' roster moves. The Vikings have a veteran defense built to win now, and wasting those investments while Booty learns the ropes makes less sense than leaving Jackson in there.

By the way, where was the Vikings' sixty million dollar defense tonight? Aaron Rodgers had about two minutes to sit in the pocket while Allen, Kevin Williams, and the rest of the hyped Viking "D" never got anywhere near him. The Vikings' highly touted run defense gave up a fifty-seven yard run that set up the winning TD for the Packers. The special teams also broke down and gave Green Bay a punt return for a TD. Ripping on Tarvaris Jackson, fair or not, ignores the other problems the Vikings had tonight. Ultimately, the blame for tonight's loss rests with coaching and management, not Tarvaris Jackson.

This game made me sick. I don't understand why Shianco is still around, he sucks, I called it out last year...and he still sucks. T-jack spent half the day on the ground or running for his life, even Payton struggled with that against the bears. And exactly, where is our 50 mil $ D? Rodgers got touched maybe once, twice?

I love the Vikes, but man something is wrong with this game...hard to pinpoint it...but I mostly blame shainco for not catching things that most recieving TEs in the league can catch, and the o line looked horrible blocking for T-jack.

T-jack not that good...but it doesn't help him when hes constantly being rushed and his recievers dropping balls like they dipped their hands in butter.

ugh, im sick now. Shainco sux

my rant...sorry

Ditto.

Mills looks like twice the tight end.

Chilly didn't want / need Favre becuase according to him 'tjack is exactly where we expect him to be as far as development is concerned'.

Not saying it was a good pass, but he was forced to release it high because there was a d-lineman with his hand up in his passing lane. Again not saying it was a good pass, but even the great Brett Favre couldn't have thrown that ball through the dude's hand.

I think he was throwing to Shiancoe underneath right at the first down yardage and it sailed on him.

It's going to be a fun and interesting season for sure.

I thought he looked pretty good in the 2nd half. There were a few dropped balls that were right where they needed to be. Also a couple of bad ref calls. When he was put into good passing situations (most of the 2nd half) his short and mid range passes were accurate, except for the INT obviously. His rushing ability showed and I thought he handled the good outside pressure well. Kampman was all over the field last night. A general comment, but Chili called a horrible first half; just putrid.

My one big knock on Tjack is that I don't believe he has the touch to throw the long ball. I don't think that's something you can learn. Maybe he can get the timing improved with one or two of the receivers, but I don't see him getting a lot more accurate in this area. IF the defense and running game can get to NFL elite status, then we might not need a deep passing game. I'm not selling them out yet, could be a good team still.

Oh, nice game JAllen!

    • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6D8B7xbrAGw   Ice fishing in Wisconsin can be a challenge at times. Catching walleyes is not always an easy task either. We had some crazy weather leading up to this weekend, it was -20 degrees for a solid week and a half, followed by 2-3 days of mid 30s and pushing 40 plus some rain, then we went right back down to -20 degrees. This made for a challenge fishing tip ups this morning. I’ve got some new hole covers for my Finicky Foolers, which do work great as I’ve used them before, but unfortunately with no snow cover I made the mistake of not setting them right away and forming slush to the cover. Lesson learned. I did get a bit lucky catching that walleye as I thought it would have dropped the minnow with the line being froze. The first fish I caught was definitely a surprise, a species I have never caught through the ice before, although I have heard they are fairly common to catch out on this lake. Still was hoping it was a giant walleye, but fun nonetheless! With the cold we weren’t really planning on moving much. We would mark fish every 10 minutes or so but many of them were tight lipped. We did manage a couple more fish jigging, which were some good sized crappie and perch! Overall I did end up accomplishing the goal of catching a slot walleye out here, so can’t complain. I will be out on Petenwell Lake more times this winter!
    • Drilled the holes first then set the sleeves down seemed to work a lot better...just have to make sure you mark your holes lol
    • A nice bite continues with anglers catching all sizes of walleyes and saugers.  Most of the action on the south shore is in 24-30' of water.  Daytime bite continues thanks to stained waters of LOW.  There has been a good morning evening bite in 15-17' as well.  Resorts and outfitters keeping ice roads in good shape. One two punch of jigging line and dead stick (hook/jig with live minnow under bobber) effective as is the use of electronics to mark fish. Jigging spoons in gold, glow, glow red and pink uv.  Small rippin raps also good. If not fishing in a resort fish house, auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail.   Rainy River pushing out some nice walleyes with an occasional sturgeon through the ice.  Fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.     The NW Angle also has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has remained great. Ice road goes to Flag and Oak Island from Young's Bay. Good walleyes in 22-28' with saugers and perch in water deeper than 26'. Combo of jigging spoons and dead sticks with a jig and minnow effective.  Resorts are guiding anglers to slab crappies on the Ontario side of lake. Preserve the resource, catch your crappies, move on to walleyes or another species as mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper.  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.  
    • I believe I picked that one up at Red Rock Wilderness Store.  It’s located east of Ely on the Fernberg.   Good thing is he does have an on line store too. 
    • How about using a AGM battery. They are sealed so no need to vent. I use one in my Yetti for the last 3 years. I also use a big volt and run a forced air furnace. I made an extra storage area in front of my rear jack knife sofa for the battery. I remove the lid to access it to hook up the big volt. After drilling the hose I reconnect the house power back to the battery. I used old jumper cable ends from my power source to the house. That way I just pull off the cables when I leave the house. No drain on battery when I’m gone. Easy access. I had it under rear sofa that was a pain. Best change I made to the house. I got the old cables off a dead jumper unit at the landfill.
