    Nfl Draft, Trades, and Free Agency

    Also someone that takes pride in being a good run blocker. My impression after watching his interview is that he isn't all wrapped up in only himself like some WR's.

    Comparing Teddy's first 2 years in the league to Farve's first 2 years Teddy has a higher completion %. Teddy has a higher yards per catch. Teddy has a higher QB rating and Teddy has a lower interception %.

    Since 1970 the Lions have won the Division 3 times. The Bears have won it 10 times. The Packers have won it 12 times. The Vikings,,,,,,,,,,,,17 times. I didn't.

    "always living in the past" I thought we were talking about the 2015 Division Championship? Isn't that right now?

    Best deer season so far

    Nice bucks! The racks are very similar in shape. Could it be similar genes? Father/offspring?
  8. From an article in the Duluth Tribune. Quote:Sam Cook column: Hunters reflect on a lean season Quote:Perhaps Josh and Jeremy Graves, the 41-year-old twins at the Graves camp, appreciated being at the shack more than most. Two or three weeks ago, both were in Afghanistan. They were finishing a six-month deployment as engineers with the 148th Fighter Wing of the Minnesota Air National Guard in Duluth. “I’m just glad to be home,” Jeremy said. The silence after his words left room for a lot of interpretation. Someone across the room asked if the two brothers had been in danger where they were stationed. “Yeah,” Jeremy said. “There was shelling.” That was all he said. The room grew quiet for a bit. Finally, Mike Graves spoke. “Kind of puts the deer hunting all in perspective, doesn’t it?” he said.

    Vikes 2013 Draft

    Quote: I didn't like giving a 2nd, 3rd, and a 4th for somebody!! That's a little scary to me also but in the 2011 draft I think Atlanta gave up their 2011 1st, 2nd, and 4th round picks in addition to their 2012 1st and 4th round picks to move up and get Julio Jones. Everyone thought that Atlanta was crazy but Jones became a star and Atlanta looked brilliant. If Jones had only been average Atlanta would have looked really stupid. We'll know how the Vikings did in 2 or 3 years. As far as a MLB?????

    Greg Jennings

    Some people have short memories. I think I have this right but I'm sure somebody will tell me if I do not. In Farve's 2nd year starting (1993) he completed 60.9 % of his pass attempts. He averaged 6.3 yards per completion. He threw for 19 touchdowns and 24 interceptions. His passer rating was 72.2. Last year Ponder completed 62.1% of his pass attempts. He averaged 6.1 yards per completion. He threw for 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. His passer rating was 81.2. I remember waiting for the Vikings to play the Packers because Farve was so bad. Farve was worse then Ponder! They should have released Farve or at least benched him!

    Greg Jennings

    I heard Ruesse say something interesting on 1500 yesterday. It was that of all the teams that were paying a wide receiver over 8 or? 9 million a year last year,,,,,,not a single one of those teams made the playoffs. I do not think that the Packers offered Jennings 10 million. I think that is what Jennings told the Packers that he wanted. I think the Packers have offered about 6 million a year but could be wrong about that.

    2013 Vikings off season

    Quote:and we had a quality WR and a great TE. Ponder couldnt hit them. Wasn't Harvin leading the NFL or close to it in catches before he was injured? Does anyone else remember how bad Farve was his first couple of years? How about Eli? Or Flacco? Sure some first year QB's look really good their first year but then the rest of the NFL watches and learns like what happened to Cam Newton his 2nd year. Me,,,I would rather have a smart QB that is learning over a fast and rocket armed QB that is just getting by with his skills. I think we need another Joe Kapp. He was a leader and if a linebacker got in his way he just ran him over and knocked him out.

    Well, I walked off the ice today

    Quote:But then there were areas where there would be a crack running through the ice, and the exact other side of the crack was black ice. This side of the crack was white, the other side was black, all within an inch of each other. Lots of cracks, lots of white and black. It made me feel afraid to step across the cracks, and I just couldn't get it into my head that it was all good ice. My theory of what you saw. The white ice is where it froze when there was snow falling. Kind of like slush freezing. Then that broke up into the white chunks that you saw. The open water in between the chunks of white ice then froze with out snow falling making black ice. Black ice is much stronger then white ice so when the ice expands and contracts with the tempature changes it contracted during a cold spell and cracked just inside the white/weaker ice. The ice sheet on URL will move about 12 feet when the temps go from -20 to +20. When I saw the Topic that you walked off I feared that you sank a vehicle and walked off. I'm happy you are safe and sound. AND DRY!
