      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 .

Tavaris Jackson... NFC Player of the Week!

Recommended Posts

Minnesota Vikings' quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week after his 11-for-17, 163 yard, four touchdown performance against Arizona this past Sunday.

That was the best offensive performance in the NFC this week? What about Adrian Peterson?

He's been hot the past couple of weeks, no doubt. However, his long-term consistency is still in question. The only way to answer that question is time.

Only if he plays consistently well the rest of the year and throughout the playoffs will I then be a TJ believer. I think that's how most people feel.

Till then, he's still got something to prove, so I hope he continues to start regardless of Gus's health.

IMO the starting job it Tj's to keep or lose again, so I'd give him till half-time of the Giants game. If he struggles against the Falcons and again against the G-men, then I'd yank him in favor of Gus at half-time. Granted, that's just my opinion, and odds are he won't completely struggle for 6 quarters straight. So that decision won't be as cut and dry as I make it sound, but I believe it is a good starting point for where we're at with him right now.

Hopefully TJ continues to produce. I want him to succeed. He may be the future of this team. We know darn well that Gus is just a temporary band-aid.

We'll see how he does the rest of the year. Hopefully great, but I'm not getting my hopes up just yet.

Well when theres 8 in the box every play you should have some good 1 on 1 matchups..So I credit most of our passing game to our running game.But that was the best game Jackson has played in purple.I hope he stays in cuz Gus has been AWFUL.Plus, his confidence has gotta be sky high.

Well deserved by T-Jack....

But, in over a year of starts...how many of these games can you say that T-Jack had a great game?

Counting this one, I can think of 2.

Maybe he turned the corner, but I am still nervous when he is on the field.

Again,

as I said before. I can't believe you guys. He has a great game coming in off the bench. Then he has a great game against Arizona and many of you sit here and find excuses why he did so well...YES, I said EXCUSES.

He did a great job against Arizona. Let's just call it what it is...A PLAYER OF THE WEEK PERFORMANCE.

Gus would have had us gritting our teeth on that game.

EVERY QB who has ever played the game has struggled at times. I would expect T-jack to do the same as he progresses.

Just remember that when you think you always have to have a perfect performance.

What a bunch of hand wringers smile

TarJack as Player of the Week...I'm pretty sure that's one of the signs of the apocalypse smile

He played great against Detroit and Arizona - two HORRIBLE pass defenses. Atlanta is a step up, and NY another step up. If he plays well the next two weeks, I'm sold. Until then? Too small a sample size to draw any meaningful conclusions.

One thing for certain, Gus is not our future, T-Jack might be, so unless he gets play time to prove he is or isnt our future, our QB troubles will go on! Lets play him this year since he is in there and see what he has, then next year we will know whether to go after a starting QB!

Arizona has allowed less passing yards per game than Atlanta and has one more sack. Atlanta has allowed less Passing TD's however. Looking at the stats, Arizona and Atlanta are very comparable.

Yeah they both stink in pass defense! grin

Tjack played well. He completed 11 passes so we must now annoint him the best qb the Vikes have ever had. I think his play in the Az game is being waaaaaaaaay overblown. He did well but to many people are getting carried away here.

Overblown...listen to yourself koonie....most are the exact opposite of overblown.

I can't believe the negative nellies here.

He's certainly not a great QB, that's not even in question but he definitely beats Gus Ferotte. Who knows, he may turn out to be a serviceable QB given the time to develop. If not we'll never know.

All I know is I am going to buy stock in crow futures. One way or another, one side in this discussion is going to be eating a few meals worth.

    • Boiled meat??? Isn't that for soups? How bout cooking meat the way it should be... then let the pooch clean off the grates.
    • I just want my chocolate cake!!!! 
    • At the big M today and tomorrow. $4.99 for 6 pcs. Seems like someone is always looking for it.
    • I get what you are getting at but I couldn't care less about a person's choice of cooking method and whether it has more or less steps. The fact is I do things in cooking quite often that might not be the simplest way to achieve the results but I do it how I like it. As we speak I have a beef roast in one of those over-cooking crock pots that Del hates. It was easy, put roast and a couple other ingredients into the pot and turn it on, simple. But sometimes I like to take a piece of meat and marinade it or brine it then maybe inject it then rub it with a bunch of seasonings I mix together then light some charcoals, then dump lit charcoals on top of unlit charcoals then wait for temperature to be at optimal level then put meat on grill then check temp every half hour, then baste from time to time, then possibly foil, then possibly unfoil, then cook some more, then sauce, then let rest......you get the picture My main problem with souse vide is that I would never be certain I wasn't poisoning myself or my family.
    • Method 1- Take a steak. Put in a bag. Season, marinate etc. Get plastic container and fill with water to recommended level. Vacuum seal the bag Plop said bag in the water Add glorified fish tank heater Set temp and walk away until you hit the desired internal temp. Pull bag. Start grill or frying pan Cut bag,dump steak in the pan or on the grill. Cook steak until done Clean up grill or pan Dump out water Wash water pan Put away vacuum sealer.   Method 2 Start pan or grill Season steak Cook steak Eat steak Wash pan or grill Relax.
    • yup interesting but I too will stay with grills and smokers.......   and frying pans...
    • Well since Del once again can't be bothered to provide supporting evidence to his own arguments I thought I would do it for him, again. If anyone here is really interested in sous vide cooking I would suggest reading this:  http://www.douglasbaldwin.com/sous-vide.html. This is probably about as comprehensive a guide to souse vide as you will find and the first part about food safety is very interesting and explains what Del couldn't. At this point I personally don't think the method is for me but I would keep an open mind and would like to taste some of the food produced by souse vide sometime.(hint) If you like to figure out mathematical equations in order to keep you and your family safe and tenderness is your one and only consideration when cooking a meal then sous vide may be for you. For me I love that smoky grilled flavor I get from cooking over fire or coals. 
    • Who's the one here who argues in favor of the FDA every chance he gets?
    • Good for you! Hard to get them wimmen away from that "put it back on the rack;  it ain't yet black!" mindset....
    • I deep fried a wild turkey yesterday to almost the recommended temp and thought it was way over done and on the verge of being a waste.  My wife thought it was great. I carved the domestic turkey in the roaster before the magic button popped and temp was barely140.  It was fantastic.  My wife was apprehensive but had to agree it was just right. I m slowly getting her off the “It ain’t cooked till it’s brown all the way through”.
