      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 .

Your 2009 Vikings QB...Sage Rosenfels????

Recommended Posts

Quote:
The Vikings and Houston Texans are close to completing a trade that would send quarterback Sage Rosenfels to Minnesota, according to the Houston Chronicle. The Vikings reportedly would give up a fourth-round draft choice.

This is the second year in a row the Vikings have attempted to get Rosenfels. Last year, the Vikings offered Houston a third-round pick but the talks ended when the Texans asked for a second-rounder.

Vikings coach Brad Childress said Friday that he wanted someone to compete with Tarvaris Jackson for the starting quarterback job and that if Gus Frerotte elected to return for the final season of his contract he could be the guy. However, if a trade for Rosenfels is completed that likely means Frerotte won’t be back.

Rosenfels, who is from Iowa and played at Iowa State, has one season left on his contract. He will turn 31 on March 6.

Rosenfels has been in the NFL for eight seasons, spending one season with Washington, four with Miami and three with Houston. He has started five games each of the past two seasons and went 2-3 last season. Here is Rosenfels’ bio page from NFL.com.

Rosenfels did not start in the Texans’ 28-21 loss at the Metrodome on Nov. 2, but he did replace the injured Matt Schaub in that game. He completed 21 of 29 passes for 224 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.

Rosenfels was 4-1 in his five starts in 2007 and certainly upped his value by going 3-1 in the Texans’ final four games that season. He threw seven touchdowns and five interceptions in that time. This included three touchdown passes in a 28-14 victory over Tampa Bay but two weeks later he threw three interceptions in a 38-15 loss to Indianapolis. Rosenfels lost his first three starts last season before guiding the Texans to victories over Cleveland and Jacksonville.

Even if the trade is agreed upon, it will not become official until 11 p.m. Thursday when the NFL’s new league year will begin. That also will mark the start of free agency.

Yeah I just seen that on ESPN. I don't know what to think, his completion percent was higher in a head to head with Vikes QBs, but his pick to TD ratio wasn't all that impressive. But who knows what can happen in a different uniform.

I dont think they set the bar to high here. Although we would only be giving up a 4th round, instead of a 1st +, low risk, low reward.

I'm not even a Vikings fan but think they would have been more competitive for the next couple years with Garcia. He's not the future but neither is a 31-year-old journeyman like Rosenfels.

Zigi should show his commitment by signing Rosenfels and then using a 1st or 2nd round pick on a QB.

The Vikes surely can't be serious about Vick. They just can't. Can they?

I'd be speechless.... wouldn't know what to say, or what to think.

I just can't believe that Vick is even a remote possibility, after all the character issues this team had earlier in the decade.

I am all for giving a guy a second chance, but I honestly don't know how I'd feel about that one.

But.... talk about ticket sales!

I would welcome any of the possible QB's Rosenfels, Garcia, Cassel, Warner, Collins. But I would like Cassel but the pats would want to much for him. I would go with Garcia (he extends plays, and can run if need be). and my second choice would be Rosenfels.

Great....... another bum behind center.... cry

Gimme a B...... Gimme an O....Gimme another O......Gimme a T..... Gimme a Y...... Go Booty! shocked

Booty is a putz....he will never even be as good a quarterback as T-Jack. We were down at training camp last summer and the guy was already too important to come over and sign my 10 year olds ball for him, a complete jacka$$ if you ask me. And after watching him in practice trying to thow the ball into a net at 30 yards....well, Brooks Bollinger made the throw 3 times as many times a Booty did. He was a total waste of a pick last year IMO.

Rosenfells will come in and compete for the starting job. Not sure if it's the answer or not, but I do remember him going 21 for 29 with a passer rating of 103 (I believe) when he stepped in for Shaub in the Metrodome this past year. Cassel has already signed his one year tender and the Pats submitted the paperwork today, so it looks like he is off the market. Garcia might have been a decent choice, but not a long term solution either with his age, just a bandaid at this point. I guess if you look at it, there really is much else out there in the free agent market.

ESPN said Sunday that Vick would not even be playing in the NFL until 2010. They would use the "bad behavior" rule or whatever it is called to hold him out for the 2009 season. They also said that by then he would only be useful as a position player, not a QB.

SportsRadio 6010 in Houston reports that the Vikings will sign Sage Rosenfels to a new three-year, $9 million deal once his trade to Minnesota is done.

The station says there is still haggling about compensation, however. The Texans want a third-rounder and Minnesota is offering a fifth. The station expects the sides to settle on a fourth, but it doesn't sound like a deal is done.

If the deal gets done, I think Rosenfels will push TJ harder than Gus did, so he will really have to step up.

Sage vs TJack for the starting job: I hope TJ proves to be the better QB and wins the job. (If for no other reason than to prove the last 3years with him haven't been a total waste.)

As usual, I've got my fingers' crossed (but I'm not holding my breath!).

I'm with Wadinator. Sage doesn't really do much for me but he will push T-Jack harder than Gus. If he wins the job cool. If not, he is a better back up than Gus if T-Jack continues to be up and down.

They shouldnt just be looking for someone that maybe better, and that can push T-Jack, they should be looking for someone to lead this team.

I don't disagree but the choices are not great. Your options are a couple of 39 year olds (Collins and Garcia) who could break down at any time, Kurt Warner who is asking for 16 million a year, Cassel who will cost $30 million guaranteed and high picks based on one good year, or a bunch of Sage Rosenfels types. The pickings are slim or very expensive. It's a tough call. I am not sold on mortgaging the future of our salary cap or drafts for any of them.

What fishyguy said.

Very soon we will need to draft a quarterback of the future. In the first round. With a high pick. Someone who is as close to a sure thing as possible. Most likely we'll have to trade up.

Bears castoffs? Berrians a pretty good reciever, you are acting like he got cut. Oh, and on Thanksgiving he rented a semi truck, filled it full of turkeys he bought and had them delivered to a shelter for the poor. Seems like a great guy to me.

Man, I really wish we had a QB with the talent to match the rest of the team. I guess we'll just have to hope we get the best out of the motley crew under center and see where it takes us.

The Vikes must really see something in Rosenfels being this is two seasons in a row making a run at the guy. I guess I just don't get it. A career back-up with marginal stats at best. I would rather see him on our team that Gus...but I just don't think that's saying much. Not a bad move though, considering what else is actually out there.

I agree, just don't believe he will be the answer. It would be really nice too see a quality QB for once.

For cast offs I am talking about Marcus Robinson, Dewayne Bates, Bobby Wade (he came through free agency from another team but we cut him), and I am sure there are others. Berrian went to Minny for more money. Money that we used to resign Brigs.

Never said Berrian was a bad guy at all.

Oh yeah since you like our washed up receivers Booker is available. grin

    • any idea what finished weight is on that thing looks really light. I bet in the right conditions you could almost pull it out by hand. Look great BTW!
    • any reports from the weekend? Looked like the rain moved out before noon on Saturday but was windy both days. I never do well in wind but from people I talked to looks like a lot people at least shot some birds. I don't know how numbers were looking compared to previous years and I am sure its hard to say for sure with all the corn in.  So lets here some reports? Where did you hunt? Public or private land? How many birds did you get and see?
    • The ladder is connected to a "J" hook design, I can remove it and store it on the bunk in about 7 seconds.
    • I love a good steak. But the smoker is great and I enjoy doing it. This weekend I had a bunch of things to get done around the house inside and out. Why not throw something on the smoker?  For the most part is was set it and forget it and took very little time or effort. I bought it at the store. Opened and rinsed. Rubbed with montreal steak season and wrapped it back up and let it sit in the fridge. Same thing I would do with a steak. My kids woke me up at 6am saturday. So I removed it from the fridge and let it come to room temp. Put it on the smoker at 7am and didnt touch or look at it until noon. Then I wrapped it in foil and let it go for a few more hours. Pulled it at 200 and put it in the cooler. I am willing to wager the amount of work to season a steak, and stand over a grill to watch for flare ups, let it rest and wrap in foil is virtually no less  or more work than a grilling a steak. And I am not going to find any good cut of steak for $4.50 a lb thats for sure..... You can get chicken wings for $2.25 a lb? Breasts typically run around $3 a lb unless you get it on sale. Its rare but you can get whole fryers for $1.50 but getting hard to find and I aint eating wings off one of those lol
    • yes almost too tender to slice and my family loved it. Can't wait to smoke another
    • Have you thought of hinging the top of the ladder and adding a bracket or even just a bungie on the ceiling so you can just slide it up out of the way when the kids aren't with?  
    • Anyone have one?  I do not currently own an underwater cam but am in the market.  Pros and cons would be appreciated! 
    • Then again by the time you factor in decoys,calls,shotguns,shells,has,license etc the goose was about $875 a pound. Fair enough, I guess you can call anything gourmet and get by with it.    
    • I think my buddy is selling his VS825SD if your interested shoot me a PM.
