      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 .

My god i've been asking for this kind of stuff on 1st down forever. Motion AP out left and now the defense has to think about what is going on. Lets hope we keep seeing some of this creativity.

Here we go again. These special teams have to be one of the worst in Vikings history. The returns that lead to good field position for Bears, a blocked punt and a TD off another punt screwed up by the returner. We should be winning by more than 14. What a joke. Now an ez interception at our owm 30. We are giving this game to them.

Yeah Chilly gets the offense going and then the special teams couldn't look any worse. But back to the offense, its good to see some of these 12-15 yard routes. As hard as teams play the vikings run game these routes should be open all the time.

Down 48 to 31 with one quarter left. If Chilli doesn't air it out in the 4th and give us a chance to win this game he should be fired immediately after the game. His inability to react to the other team's defence or the situation is so frustrating.

Of course he's not going to do the thing your supposed to-- It's Chilly, He has no clue what he's doing out there.

Chilly out -- Bill Cowher in.

Well this is one game i can't pin on Chilly's playcalling. You can question the squib kicks in the 1st half but you can't make the mistakes the vikings did today and expect to win in Chicago.

Its the first time in a long time that I think the players left this one on the field, not the coach.

Did Chilly turn a corner? I doubt it, but we'll see. I was impressed with the play calling on the opening drive. However, IMO the creativity fizzled after that. It was better than usual, but still not up to par. It's too bad they couldn't have continued to mix things up throughout the game they way they did on the first drive.

It's a good thing Booker dropped those 2 TD passes, or it would have been much worse! 4 INT's for Gus......ouch smile

Vikings might be as bad as the Badgers football team. Two perennial loses with no championships.

Did you mean perennial losers??? I wouldn't compare professional and college teams. The Badgers have been very competitive over the years winning Big Ten Championships and Major Bowl games. They're down this year for the first time in awhile...now I know how the Gopher fans have felt all those years at the bottom of the Big Ten.

GO PACK!!

Good catch! Yes. I did mean perennial "losers". Badgers have 0 championships just like the Vikings whereas the Gophers have 6. We've even got their old coaching staff. MN vikings are the WI badgers of the NFL. LOL.

    • 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.    
    • Good deal! Did you leave the ice coned up to help keep a seal?
    • Update: took the shack out this weekend had reflectix and fans blowing in the holes and they stayed open in the -20 windchills 
    •   I also saw a picture with Blair Walsh's face on Marcus Williams as he is missing the tackle.........wide left. 
    • Copied from FB:   A friend of mine has two tickets for the 2018 Super Bowl, both box seats. He paid $2,500 each but he didn't realize last year when he bought them, it was going to be on the same day as his wedding. If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place...It's at St Christopher’s Church, in Edina, Minnesota, at 3pm. Her name is Samantha, she's 5'4", about 145 lbs, good cook too.....She'll be the one in the white dress.
      (Feel free to copy and paste, to keep the laughter going!)
    • The saints player was probably running to where the ball should have been thrown. That throw was 2 yards onto the field, should have been closer to the sideline. It would have been a pretty easy tackle to keep him in bounds and the game is over.. Nothing wrong with a little luck on our side. I thought the refs were terrible all game. Lots of questionable and no calls. That last no call when Theilen got mugged was ridiculous...
