      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 .

Who should start on Sunday

Recommended Posts

Vote who you think is the best option for Sunday and going forward please. Feel free to comment. I have a feeling this is going to be a quarterback controversy into the playoffs.

I'm not sure how to vote.

I think TJack should start this game, regardless of Gus's health. However, I'm not yet convinced he should be anointed the starter.

I guess my answer would be "Start Tjack until he obviously struggles". Hopefully that never happens and he stays in there, cuz while he isn't struggling, he's definitely the better QB.

That's just me though. I would guess most folks have made up their minds already.

I'd say start T-jack until he starts to struggle. If he struggles put in Gus with the hopes of turning things around. We need the win.

I'm on the gus bus. As I've said before neither are that great. It will help to get T-Jack the experience since I doubt Gus will be back next season. Get T-Jack some experience so if he doesnt stick around he'll be worth something in the off season.

I think T-Jack and Gus should switch off every down. They can run in the play calling instead of the receivers or running backs. LOL J/K

I voted for T-Jack winning the job back because Gus has not looked very good as of late.

I think you have to start Gus. He was the one that got you to this point of the season in a chance to win the devision, you have to play the guys that got you there.

I think either one of them will have a tough time with the next two opponents, good test for the playoffs though. I'd stay with TJ. Gus was looking pretty bad before the injury.

Stick with T jak 4 tds and no INTs was huge. Everyone seems to forget all the INT's Gus threw. Plus i have a hard time watching the guy roll on the ground everygame because he's old and brittle.

I think you stick with Jackson at this point. I like the option of getting him on the edge with playaction. Its been pretty effective when used the last 6 quarters. I don't like the prospects of Gus the statue in the pocket with the pass rushes they might see from the next 2 opponents. Again, moving Jackson out of the pocket, or moving the pocket is just another option for the vikings to use. I think Jackson in the game gives the defense more to think about. There is always that option on 3rd and 4's for Jackson to run for first downs. There were a couple plays yesterday where Jackson was able to escape the rush and at least get back to the line of scrimmage for a 2nd and 10 rather than Gus back there getting sacked for a 2nd and 17. It might not seem like much, and it doesnt show in the statbook, but those are huge plays when trying to move the chains.

why do you say that chester needs more playing time. We have the best running back in the league!

2 reasons:

1. Rest him a little before the playoffs

2. He has put the ball on the turf alot the last couple weeks

As far as Jackson/Frerotte:

I think benching Jackson was the thing to do because he was horrible the first couple weeks, granted a few of the missed catches weren't his fault, but he still looked lost out there. Benching him also seemed to light a fire under him and he looked good the past 2 weeks. However, that is only TD wise last week, he still had less yards throwing than we had rushing, that's not good.

I would go T-junk and see if he keeps getting better. If he sucks during a quarter, pull him and put in Gus. If he continues this play or can do a comback then he deserves to keep playing.

Well you have came around a little sandman, but come on how many horrible qts/games did gussy put out there. I am having a tough time remembering the last time Gus had 4 tds with no picks or a 135 passer rating. Somebody please remind me.

T-Jack had a great performance.

But Gus still has a better win % as a Viking. To me, wins are more important.

The D and running game made T-Jack look good too. He did not pass for a lot of yards, but got the job done.

It goes to prove the old saying in MN Football. Who is the most popular person on the team? The back-up QB. Who is always the least popular? The coach. Year after year after year...it is the same thing.

I never said he didn't play a good game on Sunday. I just think he still hasn't proven (at least to me) that he is the QB to lead this team. My opinion will change as this week goes. If he continues to do this good, my opinion of him will go up.

Looks like T-Jack got the nod!

Pro Football Talk has learned that Tarvaris Jackson will start Sunday's game against the Falcons.

This was sort of a no-brainer. Jackson threw four touchdown passes last week and Gus Frerotte's back remains iffy. Still, Jackson isn't likely to go off like he did against the Cardinals and those in fantasy playoffs would be crazy to trust him. Dec. 15 - 8:11 pm et

TJunk was NFC Offensive Player of the Week. Tough to bench him after an honor like that. If he falters, yank him, plain and simple. I am not a fan of his, but do wish him and the Vikes well.

    • adding a cheap bass cannon would help for sure. make sure you connect your wires correctly plus to plus from speaker to stereo, usually the copper colored wire or the wire that has a white strip on it is used for the positive, this helps you so you do correctly connect the speaker to the amp or radio. Right to right left out to left. Check balance setting on radio, check treb and bass setting start off at 50% and raise your bass setting while lowering your treb setting. I like a lot of bass so I am usually at 80% bass and 50% treb. Check to make sure you don't have cracked covers on your speaker's. You can also make small speaker boxes to put your speakers in and pack them loosely with insulation to give you more bass and direct your music out the front, if you are a little handy making a box.  Ya I have played around with speakers I have my entire house wired and the last time I counted 19 speakers in my place not counting another 10 for two surround sound systems.
    • Well kind of back to guns, I have been looking to buy a .22 pellet rife for the varmint's around here. a gun but not the kind you guys are talking about  I think.
    • I would not plug it in 24/7 no need. an hour before you need it should be enough, not even cold enough to think about plugging something in when it is above zero out. you just need  a good battery. 2013 it is not even an old truck and the block heater is heating the engine which is not what warms the truck up when you start it anyway
    • I have a 2013 F150 that sits most of the week because I have a company provided car. I would like to keep it plugged in most of the time not because I'm worried about it not starting but because it warms up much quicker. Does anyone have any idea about whether or not keeping the block heater plugged in all the time would damage anything?
    • I'd agree........I'd like those who feel otherwise explain to me why a proview would even come close to a tri beam.
    • Some even think Christianity is to blame for crime in America.......  
    • Could also be the speaker... if you installled just a tweeter, then you aren’t going to get any bass. You want a two or three way speaker to give you the full range.  As mentioned... it could also be the radio setting
    • I think your GVW has to be 3000 lbs or less to get a lifetime license.
    • Assuming you are in MN... You are Going to have to have a weight slip as well.... over 3500# means you need a regular license plate instead of a lifetime. Also need brakes
