According to thevikingage.com Garcia has been offered to a few teams OTHER than the Vikes, we'll wait and see I guess

As much as I'm down on TJ, any available QB's out there, including JG is going to be nothing but a band-aid.

In the trib yesterday, Chilly said QB is open. ESPN said Jackson is weakest link and if Chilly puts him on the bench, his career in MN is over. PA and Dubay say Jackson starts but if boo'd and inefficient on 3rd down Ferotte will start second half.

Won't help

Still have the same play caller. The system is at fault. Predictable play calling is the problem. But we'll see, it can't hurt!

So do you think this decision came from the Top (Ziggy) ?

Like i said it will be interesting to see if the playcalling changes now with Gus. If the playcalling doesnt start to change i dont think it will matter. Obviously AP is the bread and butter but you have got to get some 3 reciever sets in there on 1st and 2nd down and you have to go sprinkle in some passes on 1st down to get the defense guessing a little. The playcalling the other day enabled the colts to just dial in on AP on 1st and 2nd down. You have to make the defense at least think. Berrian was brought in for a reason, now lets see it. Make teams pay on 1st and 2nd down for loading the box.

Agreed JW. I just mentioned basically the same thing in another post. Right now the opposing D has their ears pinned back ready to attack the line and AP. We need to get the opposing D back on their heals a bit and keep them honest.

Time should quickly tell if the play calling will change at all.

Sure you don't want to re-phrase that to saying "Can I pay anyone to take my Tjack jersey?"

Maybe the play calling will improve if the QB can have SOME chance of throwing an accurate pass downfield? Let's hope. Its a bit of a catch-22, the plays hurt the QB but the QB can't handle the other plays...chicken and an egg? I don't know but SOMETHING had to change and this is a start to at least see better where we are at if nothing else.

Can't see Ferotte being much of a long term answer though either. The guy has a losing career record and only a 74 career QB rating. Not exactly hall of fame caliber credentials.

Should be interesting if nothing else.

    • Possible but I'm not sure who owns what patent.
    • For those of you that have not seen this yet. This will be making it's way into my frog box    
    • Have any of you guys tried the Stanley ribbit frogs?  I picked up a couple of packs at my local wally world for a $1 a pack.   On a side note I saw a video of Jacob Wheeler talking about using a buzzbait and putting a biffle bug on it instead of a skirt, he mentioned that they hit it better and hold on to it a little longer since there is some mass there.  I wonder if a zoom horny toad would work for that as well since the biffle bugs are expensive.
    • HAs anyone here used this software to map your lakes?  Has anyone downloaded the lakes that are on the shared cloud?  I have a hook 7 and some of the lakes around have been mapped, it would be nice to download them and use that instead of the other map.
    •   Is that the work around garmin uses to avoid licensing the Lowrance patent?    Or was the patent on something different?
    • I was on private land that I have shot 8 birds in 10 seasons.Over 300 acres of prime land by Caledonia but none in our group of 4 scored this year. Just makes me more excited for next year. Might try the last season but will probably be into fishing by that time. Good Luck to All.....
    • Love the zoom horny toads. Man they can have some vicious blowups. Im a huge fan of buzzbaits so to be able to use this frog like a buzzbait in some thick weeds is awesome.
    • Lilacs are really leafing out here in central MN.  On my few walks through the woods, the mushrooms have been few and far between: No more scarlet cups, no pheasant backs, no oysters. I haven't went to my morel spots because there's no hurry and I don't want to trample them, but I doubt they're up very far around here if the pheasant backs haven't even fruited. I'll be back out today before the rain checking on things, though. 
    •   Just stating the facts as they stand Bear.  You listen or read at all what the national NHL analysts are saying/writing about the Wild's present/recent past/future?  I've said before I love your postivity and I'm glad too that MN has an NHL team. Spin is required to hide the facts, spin is needed to turn what is not good and make it sound good, spin is needed to make it sound like you are doing your job well when in fact we are no closer than we were 3-4 years ago.  Seriously....any chump could have improved the team from what it was when Fletch took over...you and I could have done that. If you just look inside the box, wow we are much improved; but if you look outside the box and compare yourself to the rest of the league you realize we really have not climbed the ladder very much...16th, 15th, 14th, 13th, 12th, 11th, 10th in the NHL does not cut it for me...for you it does and thus our differences and our ability to argue/discuss this back and forth.
    • Your best angle of attack should come like this: Do you need to control your trolling motor with your sonar? if so you have 2 choices. Lowrance uses motor guide and H-bird goes with Minnkota. If that is not a requirement than the field is wide open. IMO don't go with a screen smaller than 9" with side imaging there is so much detail that its hard to see on a 7" screen. I'd stay away from garmin or any unit that doesn't have a true down scan ducer that uses software to produce a down scan image there is just too much stuff lost without it.
