      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 .

2008 Green Bay Packers

Recommended Posts

Off to a nice start so far but the Cowboys coming to town Sunday has me a little worried. Aaron Rodgers looked pretty darn good the first two games, hope he keeps it up, we won't miss #4 at all.

BTW, my wife and I will be at the game Sunday so maybe we can make a difference. grin

Rodgers has looked pretty good so far...but he's only played the vikes and the lions...thats not saying much...glad it only took you 2 games not to miss #4....you'll have to wait and see how tough rodgers is when he starts pulling dirt out of his ear hole.

I picked the pack to go 10 and 6 this season. They are a good team no matter who's behind center, unless it's T-JAck. This weeks matchup against the 'Boys will be a good test for them. They can still come out very optomistic even if they only hang with Big D but still lose. After this week Green Bay will know what kinda QB they have.

I can see you point about him only playing the Lions but the Vikes?? I thought the Vikes defense was suppose to be the best in the league with the best front line and made them even better with the pass rush by signing the one year wonder they got from KC?? I can see your point if Rodgers was playing against the Vikes offense but he wasnt.I think Rodgers should get a little more credit for beating the Vikes def.

Wouldn't that be something if Rogers could lead the Pack to their 2nd Super Bowl Victory in the last 30 years... I doubt it though. I'm guessing they will remain ONE Super Bowl up on the Vikings in the last 30 "my lifetime" years! What a program..... Go Pack!... grin

Even as much as I dislike the cheezy heads, I think Rodgers is gona be a great QB. I'm cheering for him, even if he's gona be eating metrodome turf.

It's very doubtful the Packers will win the Super Bowl this year, but it's been fun watching them so far. It will be a very tough challenge on Sunday against the Cowboys. Rodgers and the recievers look good. Grant has been slowed by the hamstring, but is still averaging 4.1 yards per carry. Brandon Jackson has filled in nicely averaging 5.2 per carry. The defense has 4 INT and 6 sacks..MN has 2 sacks and 2INT's.

I look at the success of the Packers franchise...12 Championships (most in league history). The Vikings haven't won one a championship and are tied with the Bills with the worst SB record

0-4. What a program...Go Vikes! grin

Sorry CrappieNCats...the Vikings ARE tied with the Bills for the worst Super Bowl record without winning one. They lost in 1970, 1974, 1975 and 1977.

I guess since those championship games weren't called "The Super Bowl" they shouldn't count right? OK PierBridge...since 1970 the Packers only have 3 championships (Super Bowls), with a record of 3-1. I think you know what the Vikings Super Bowl record is grin Or you could start counting after 1977 and say the Vikings haven't lost any Super Bowls. wink

Good points as always Badge!

But I do have to ask the Veiwers... grin... what's worse losing a couple Super Bowls before most of us were a twinkle in our parents Eye's or LOSING a recent Super Bowl that was actually on TV in which your Team was a 13 point favorite with the NFL's Number 1 ranked defense and Brett Favre at the Helm... grin

What say you?

Was it a couple SB losses or 4? grin Yes, losing to Denver was tough, but they were the better team that day....no excuses. It was great winning it the year before though! I'm sure you were dissapointed not making it to the SB the year Atlanta beat you in 98 right? wink The Vikings were an 11 point favorite and playing at home. That could have been the year they won their 1st SB...or lost their 5th...but we'll never know smile

I'm happy that the 2008 Packers are 2-0 and have a good young talented squad. No QB or coaching controversy. It's better than having the situation in Eden Prairie smile

Packers 27 Cowboys 34 ....no green Kool Aid here wink

41-nut is a score that sticks in my mind.....

I didn't want to bring that one up, PierBridge and I are toning it down smile....I think I took my medicine with the loss to Denver. I think they were a better team than people thought. Didn't they go on to win the SB the year after as well?

You're right you don't have the QB controversy. Oh wait, didn't you have the best one ever in the history? Remember when cry baby wanted to come back and no one wanted him?

There's another post with a reference to Favre crying LOL grin The Pack has moved on. The season started with Rodgers as the main guy and he's done well so far. There is controversy in MN with TJack getting benched for a 37 year old journeyman....fans will want TJack back if Gus starts losing games as well.

Badger-

I really think he is a true Washed up Favre lover they way he always has to bring him up in every post he writes I bet he has a picture of him on his wall at home. I am glad the Pack have Rodgers at the helm he has been fun to watch. Boy if he wants to talk about washed up QB, take a look at Fergot you will see the meaning of washed up QB Sunday afternoon.

What was the line if you mind me asking??

I think it was 8....Nobody expected the Packers to be 13-3 and go to the NFC Championship game with the youngest team in the NFL. It was a fun season! We lost to the Giants in OT and they went on to win the SB. I give them the credit they deserve. Maybe the Packers will win the division this year and make the playoffs??? Only time will tell....just be glad we don't have Frerotte starting for us smile

    • The Marcus Willimans that plays for the saints is not from Minnesota. The Marcus Williams that you are referring to plays for Houston.     Going to be 52 degrees there????? 
    • Did you ask @Wanderer since it was a picture you took from his post?    
    • Good job Ryan and dad!  Great photo too!  
    • The 30 is a log to have to carry constantly but sure is nice to have to keep the bait lively!  I went last night and purchased another pump in order to plug into the wall...$13 and all I have to do is move the tube from one pump and connect to the other.  I am seeing if I can easily keep minnows alive from one weekend to the next.
    • Wow, someone else who actually watched the video and figured out what Williams did. Thanks @nofishfisherman.   It should never have gotten to that. The Vikings have got to keep playing to win for 4 quarters.   Playing to protect a lead can get you into trouble much faster than it's likely to help.
    • The mistake was getting there too early, clearly if he had continued with his tackle he would have been there way too early and would have an easy PI call against him.  Had he gotten a PI call then no matter what happened after that the vikings would have had a shot at kicking a field goal because a game can't end on a defensive penalty.  By avoiding the penalty he at least forced Diggs to make the catch and avoid any other tacklers.  In most cases the WR is going to catch that ball and get out of bounds right away no matter what. It was just the perfect mix of circumstances for Diggs to take it for a TD.  Had Diggs simply been facing a different direction after the catch he wouldn't have seen he had a clear path to the end zone and would have likely stepped out of bounds to stop the clock. Had Williams not taken out the other DB he may have been in position to make a tackle or at least be close enough to perhaps make Diggs think the best option is to run out of bounds instead of risk getting tackled in bounds.    What I found more puzzling is the overall defense from the Saints.  I've seen it broken down a few times and they had several players guarding against short passes to the middle of the field.  That vikings had no time outs and needed at least 20 yards, the Saints should have been inviting them to through short into the middle of the field not actively trying to take it away.  It appeared the entire play was a complete mental breakdown by the Saints.  It will go down as a great play by the Vikings, and it was, but it was made possible by some pretty big mistakes by the Saints defensive play calling and a single mental breakdown by Williams. 
    • Has anybody found this particular color of rattl'n flyer recently, i am down to my last 2 and i havent been able to find them in pushing 2 years.
