      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.

    • The MN DNR doesn't think we've had much movement but Louisiana thinks half their teal have left.  Its early and I haven't had coffee yet, so my reading skills might not be up to par but that's what I just read. The good news is we get to figure it out for ourselves tomorrow.  Good luck!
    • I hope it's just a really good teal spot; we need those little guys to hang around for a while!  
    • Yeah, it's not BigDave for nothing there fella!
    • It's dinner and supper!
    • My wife loooves Beets. Here's my recipe Lot of beets, as many as you can fit in to a large boiling pan. .add 1 cup draino .add 1 cup muriatic acid .heat with a blow torch throw off hwy over pass so they get tender under semi truck tries for one hour. Then go get some food and have a Beer! Enjoy! Hate um!      
    • The guy who told me this said teal were in big groups and he saw a few hundred
    • Just cuz they're flying that direction don't mean the migration started!   Summer-like temps again this year for the opener.  I don't think they're bugging out yet.  Last year I saw teal in NE MN in the 3rd week of October! I have enough shells and some calls I suck at blowing, along with decoys that sport my initials and '87 so I guess I'm as ready as every other year!
    • Never heard of one where ya DON'T cook the beets....but who knows? Here's one I used years ago... EASY PICKLED BEETS (1 Quart) 2 bunches small beets – ends trimmed and scrubbed 4 small onions – sliced and separate rings ½ cup liquid from boiled beets ½ cup white vinegar ½ cup honey – go local! ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or cinnamon stick ¼ teaspoon cloves Bring beets and enough water to cover to a boil over high heat.  Reduce to medium and continue to boil for 45 minutes.  With 5 minutes remaining on beets add onion slices.  Drain beets and onions, reserving ½ cup of the liquid, set aside. While the beets and onions cool add beet liquid, vinegar, honey, salt, cinnamon, and cloves to medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Peel beets (this should be easy once they are cooled), and slice.  Add sliced beets and onions to a Mason jar, or air tight container of your choosing.  Cover beets with boiled liquid, cover, and refrigerate at least 24 hours before eating.  I prefer them after about 72 hours.  
    • If that's lunch, I'd love to see dinner!! 
    • We can't find our recipe for pickled beets. Haven't done this for a couple of years.  Wife and I both certain we didn't cook the beets.....we just packed them in hot jars, poured the brine over, then boiled the sealed jars for 15-20 minutes.  I can't find a recipe that says you don't have to cook beets.  Does any one have such a recipe?  Our brine contained cinnamon sticks and cloves.  I imagine we could just add these ingredients to any regular vinegar/sugar/water brine though.  Mostly just wondering about using raw beats vs uncooked beets.  Thanks...Jim
