      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 .

Derek Anderson- One Year Wonder??

Recommended Posts

Well, fantasy players and others- what do you guys think? I wasted a draft pick on him this season for fantasy, and he is sure turning out to be a turkey. I picked up Trent Edwards and started him this past weekend and benched Anderson. The Chiefs were inquiring about a trade for Quinn, but the Browns shot them down, makes me think he will be playing before too long. One weeks bad play I don't really blame on Anderson- there were 50+ MPH winds, and Braylon Edwards has dropped a ton of balls this year (again). Was last year a fluke?

I wasted a 3rd rd pick on this guy. Only reason I took him is everyone in the league was starting to take QB'S and I wanted a good one, boy that was a mistake. It also doesnt help that Edwards and company cant catch a pass either.

CNY- I am too lazy to look it up, but you might know- what was his deal worth and how long are the Browns on the hook for with him? Maybe they shoulda told KC that he is available, but not Quinn.

I'm in the same boat as you fella's. I nabbed him up as my primary QB. However, with the matchups he's had thus far, I've went with my #2 option. Kitna...I've lucked out as his fantasy numbers have been better than Anderson's. But I agree...it is only wk #3 and I look forward to him getting better and better as we go here. Or at least that is my wishful thinking.

I have to give him some benefit of the doubt!

Week 1 - Dallas

Week 2 - Pittsburgh (Horrible weather)

Week 3 - Ravens

Very tough defenses to face!

Week 4 - Bengals - I am predicting a break out week

You might take him over T-Jack if they were both being paid the same but Anderson just signed a huge extension last year and is going to prove to be a bigger bust than T-Jack ever will.

they've played: dallas, Pitt, and Baltimore. that's two outstanding defenses and a pretty good one in dallas too.

its a result of defenses more than anything. i dont have him on any teams, but if i did i wouldn't be overly concerned yet. if he lays an egg against cinci though, then its panic time

lol...i'd take anderson over tjunk anyday...i don't care if tjunk was on sale for $1.

you guys are talkin about him playing a couple of the toughest defenses in the league and his wr's are dropping mad balls and td catches to top it all off.

if you were in my league i'd tell you he is junk so you would drop him...i love this time of year when people drop good guys because of a bad game or two...peyton manning and carson palmer haven't done much either...u guys should drop them too.

i didn't get him in any leagues cause people took him way to early...i seen him goin before brees, mcnabb, rivers, rodgers, ect.

but i am [PoorWordUsage] about edwards since i have him lol...i expect both those guys to have a big week this week.

I am also starting to question his abilities as I too put my early qb pick on him. Thankfully I was able to pick up P Rivers just after week two. Benched Anderson last week and I think that's where he is going to stay for awhile.

    • Just looked up the yellow. Definitely not, no white on wings and way too yellow. And all the pictures of a cowbird on Google don't show a cowbird with the rusty colored ring on it's back.
    • Spending most of my time in Dallas these days due to my job.  Will be fishing the Otter County Area in a couple of weeks.  Can't wait!  Just wondering what you guys are seeing?  I am assuming the Bass are in and will be in their late summer patterns which to me means that you could find 'em anywhere.  One of the questions my friend had (I guess watching KVD in Elite Series and  Major League fishing -- I think his recent win on the Elite Series on St Lawrence River was mainly a drop shot) was jerk baits for this time of year.  Frankly, I use mostly jigs and plastics.  Watching KVD, I think I should give jerk baits more a try.
    •  It looks yellow in the bad picture but it's a very rusty medium brown. Definatly in the blackbird family though I think. I need a decent camera. Eye guy, you told me about a not too expensive digital camera with a good zoom lens didn't you? I don't think that's it. The ring on its back is the same rust color. 
    • Of course!  Yaller headed B bird, like the Duffster said.   https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Yellow-headed_Blackbird/id
    • Yellow headed blackbird?
    • It looks way to light brown to be a cowbird but I see nothing else in my bird book it could be??? I know this is a bad picture but it's the best I can do. The thing is so tame I can almost walk right up to it and it never goes away for long.
    • Thanks for the replies. I am going to get a box of 1 3/4 #5's and a box of 1 3/4 #6's and pattern them against what I have been shooting, Hope to get that done when I go up to mow my trails this fall, whenever I can free up some time to go. I will post some results.
    • Ya saw that yesterday, glad to have him back, should shore up that 4th line or put him up on the 3rd if Ek isn't ready. Everything I saw last year from Ek has me thinking he is ready but time will tell. Need to sign Foligno yet, probably won't like the numbers I see but maybe he can surprise us. Forward group should still look really good this year, obviously the D took a hit when we traded Scandella and let Folin walk but we could still be ok, sometimes team D can make up for it. Oloffson looked good last year too, not sure about Quincy but hopefully they can form some kind of decent bottom pair. 
    • Cullen comes back on a very cap friendly deal.  1yr 1mil.
    • Manky, I have used dog food with grease as a filler and it works great! No issue but you  don't want to add to much grease and make all the dog food to soggy.
