Pro bowl

Antoine Winfield made the first Pro Bowl of his ten-year career Tuesday.

Six Vikings are going: Adrian Peterson, G Steve Hutchinson, DTs Kevin and Pat Williams and DE Jared Allen. Winfield's honor is overdue. He finally made some game-changing plays this season to go along with his usual steady tackling and covering skills.

Glad to see the list.

Would have liked to see Greenway too.

No Birk either....

Agreed- Greenway is involved in almost every tackle on the field. Reminds me alot of Uhrlacher.

Hmmmmmm, Only 2 Packers. Thats a shame. And Mr Big Bucks QB wasn't one of them

Good to see, all well deserved and Winfield was by far overdue. I could see Greenway going, but he'll get there for sure.

I think if EJ didn't get hurt he would be there too. But Greenway and Leber did step up...If Greenway keeps playing at his same level he will make a Pro Bowl or two during his career.

Well deserved for Winfield, another season like this and Greenway will be there next year. Did you hear that Winfield is taking the entire secondary to Hawaii. He said the made the agreement before the season started. Whoever made it brings the rest of them. Pretty classy.

Winfield is a total class act! That is cool he is bringing the rest of the secondary. He is undersized, but plays with a heart of a lion.

I think Greenway is very close. He might be next in line if one of the Pro-Bowl Linebackers goes down with an injury before the end of the year.

As said Winfeild well deserving and past due. I can think of another player that did not get recognized, Jack Delrio. Thankfully for Winfeild he didnt get overlooked.

Seems like we always have a great player at that position..

Favre over Rivers?......LOL

I thought the same thing. He's got 21 TDs but 17 interceptions, Philip Rivers with 28 and 11 should have definitely gotten the nod over him.

No. That was floating around in emails, etc. during the Favre un-retirement saga earlier this year.

I don't think it was a case of Minnesota not wanting him, just that the Packers wouldn't let him come here. PB are all well deserved. I think Greenway's a liitle overated, not real good in pass coverage, (until last 2 weeks) and I think only reason we talk about him is the real PB is hurt. EJ

    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one. 
    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.
