65 posts in this topic

Do you all think that its right for NE to put the francise tag on him?

Yep, if they can trade him they will get maximum value out of him. If they don't, they have a great back up.

It's alot of $$$ for one position on that or any team. Too much I think. I think Cassell will get moved between now and the draft. When does a team have to declare their franchise players?

I think I saw somewhere it is Feb 5th through the 15th or something close to that. I think it was a smart move because there is a lot of teams out there that need a good QB (starts with a Vi and ends in a kings). I think the price is high, but just imagine the Viks chances with a good QB.

The Vikings would be insane to pay a high price for Cassell. Yes, he had one decent year. With Randy Moss and Wes Welker to throw to. There is no way the Vikes should give up talent + picks for an unproven commodity.

He had a rating of 89.4 , and some people are acting like he's another Tom Brady or Peyton Manning. I don't think he's even another Eli Manning, at least not yet.

I am in no way putting him on that kind of pedistal, he is a good QB. A whole lot better than T-jack and a 38 year old. The price is high and might not be worth it, just dreaming of the day when the viks have a well rounded team instead of a few good players here and there.

But who I'm i kidding it is a minnesota team

Without a good Quarterback no team will do anything. Nomatter how many other good players are on the team. The Viks have to step up and Stop dreaming TJ is going to be the ticket. By the time he maybe does we ll be looking for other good players that have left or have gotten past their prime.

I think it's worth the risk. But we still need to work on the right side of our line.

Cassel had one good year behind a pretty good Oline and an amazing QB staff - after sitting behind Tom Brady. I don't think the Vikes should roll the dice considering the high price involved

I dont think it is worth it. A very high price tag, then having to part with a couple 1st round picks, nah! There are better options out there anyway!

Exactly!.... the Pats are going to try and rip somebody off big-time in this instance.

Its a win-win for the pats - they have insurance in case Brady has issues coming back, and if Brady does come back they can trade Cassel for more than he's worth

Name them, Butt Favre, Hasselback, Grossman, Anderson. They're options but certainly not any better.

Cassel, is going to demand big money + 2 first round draft picks, and he has not even played a whole season! UNPROVEN!-BIG MONEY-LOSS OF 2 1ST ROUNDERS, NAH! Why risk your teams future on a guy that hasnt even played a whole season?

According to a lot of folks, our TEAM isn't getting any younger. Who knows it could pay off BIG. It's just an option. I was really looking for what other options you were talking about that were so much better.

IF nothing else works out as far as the other QB's I mentioned, than would you take that risk, if Cassell was the only one left or would you grit it out with Tjack for another year. I sure hope not.

I don't think he's worth breaking the bank over, but he's a good option and leaps above what we have.

This isn't comparable to the Herschel trade, not in the least. Dallas built their Dynasty with that trade. I know that's why they slapped Cassell with the franchise tag. The Pats are smart. They know they can't pay Cassell top dollar, but somebody will.

It's like watching a kid standing on the side of the pool for hours and hours, unable to dive in.

DIVE IN AND GET A GOOD QUARTERBACK!

Definitely, they better so something about the QB position, and address the O-line.

Cassel is not leaps and bounds over what we have now. That O-line, Moss and Welker would make any QB look good, even T-Jack. Especially not at the price that will be asked for him. We won't get a crack at him until too late because it will take a bit of training camp before the Pats will decide if Brady is good to go. Reports out there say the odds are good he will not be good to go right away.

    • should trigger a check engine light....
    • OK, just from what I am reading and never having been to mechanic school.... Is it possible that when the car comes to a stop that the transmission doesn't, for reasons unknown, downshift to first but stays in a higher gear?  Then when starting out after a few seconds it does downshift to first with a jolt?  Being in too high a gear would account for the slow acceleration and the downshift would be the jolt.  Staying in too high a gear would make a shudder maybe. It did in my old stick shifts .
    • Do you know the name of the guy, CigarGuy?  I'm guessing the answer is "Yes", but I've had a couple of beers.

    • You did not identify the model of your Garmin  sorta important when wiring. If your Garmin is a Striker, than the other two wires brown and blue are not used. Also note the date on the install instructions. The ones dated before March 2016 did not include the wiring information.   This site might have some answer. http://www.gpscity.com/questions?qid=56118
    • I am having a hard time figuring out what the symptom is myself. There is no "shift" from a dead stop. It either goes or it slips and then bangs into gear after 3 seconds.
    • My backordered Garmin just arrived and I have a question that is probably a Kindergarten level electrical question so please forgive my ignorance, as this is the first sonar/GPS combo I have had.  This one is replacing my old, but usually trusty, Eagle 480.  Anyway, the power cable has 4 wires coming out of it, red, black, brown and blue.  I know the red and black are for power connections, but what are the other 2 for?  If I do not have any other device with which to share info, do I just cover the ends with electrical tape and forget about them or do I need to do something else?  Don't want to wreck something before I get to use it.  Also, regarding power supply, do you think it will give good performance if I run it off a freshly charged 12 V 7 or 9ah battery or do I need to hook it up to my boat battery?  Usually, most trips are 6 hrs. or less.  I have a size 31 dual purpose for starting and troll. motor, but will I pick up too much interference for the locator from those 2 items?  As usual, any help, thoughts, etc. will be greatly appreciated.

Please.  This isn't 1950 patriotism and honor any more. It's an anthem being blasted in a corporate named stadium where the smallest advertisement in the joint is the American flag.
