  1. It'll be a tough test. The Pats will be hungry & ticked off from their loss today.
  2. To RRR: No offense, but why do you even bother looking at schedules, commenting on teams, or having any vested interest in football at all if you feel that way??? On a game note...it was a decent win, but against a very depleted Rams offense. A Rams team that lacked discipline (how many penalties?) and a team that was way overrated coming into the season. Still though, 34-6 is how you should beat teams of this caliber. Good to have the win, but we'll find out very soon what this team is made of and capable of.
  3. I'd be "happy" to see the team go 7-9 or better. QB position is still questionable. I think we need another good corner and IMO we are still a bit weak at the LB position.
  4. Thanks everyone for the replies & info. I've passed your comments on to my dad and he'll look into each of the makes/models suggested here.
  5. My dad is wanting to buy a trail camera. He wants the very best one available with pretty much every option available. I know nothing about them. Can I get some recommendations??? Price I guess is not a barrier. Thanx!
  6. What can a guy expect to spend on a new 4000lb+/- roller trailer for an 18.5' boat which has breaks, swing tongue, etc? Just a general range would be nice to know.
  7. Yeah, the 912 is the model I'm looking at. The gun I have right now has the safety on the back side of the trigger mechanism which is opposite of the Franchi, but I can get used to it. Years ago I had a gun with a safety on the front side and was fine with it. Have you shot yours in the "extreme" cold at all? My big concern is when temps dip down into the low 20's and whether the action is as smooth as if it were 60 degrees out.
  8. I'm looking at a new shotgun and am considering a new Franchi semi-auto that shoots 3.5". Anybody have one (or know somebody who owns one) and care to comment about them?
  9. Well, I don't want to get into the whole debate of "it's made here" or "it's made there", but Merc has the American name and I'm a big fan of the black color for a motor. E-tecs have nice motor hoods too. Yamahas are just plain 'ol grey on their 4-strokes and HPDI's. But that's beyond the point I guess. The thing is, you can't find many new or used boats out there with a good Merc on it. Everyone has got to put a Yammi on for whatever reason. My folks have the Merc 115 4-stroke. It's extremely quiet and nice fuel efficiency, but it's gutless. I don't know if the Yamaha 4-strokes are similar....gutless.....but I'd take the supercharged Verado any day of the week and twice on Sunday. I'm just tired of seing the same 'ol grey Yammi on nearly every boat out there that I'd be interested in buying. Really limits a person's selection on used and sometimes, new boats.
  10. So why is there such an infatuation with Yamaha motors? All these dealers and manufacturers rigging their boats with Yamaha motors. I have been a Mercury fan for as long as I can remember (and still am), but why are there soooo many boats being pre-rigged with Yamahas? Are they less expensive than Mercs?
  11. Anyone running a Sylvan Viper or know someone who is? Any thoughts or comments about the boats (particularly the Viper 180). Thanks.
  12. Here's my 4yr old nephew's first walleye ever!!! A 32" bahemouth from the Hutch area on Sunday. The look on my nephew is just priceless.
  13. Looney Toons has always been my favorite. A couple others I was really into was He-Man and Inspector Gadget.
  14. There are only 3 movies in my life that I've never been able to watch in their entirety, which means for me, they absolutely sucked the big one! First on the list is Moulin Rouge. OMG what a POINTLESS movie!!!!!!!!!! A very close second is Lost in Translation! Good Lord! What was the point to that movie? The Academy Awards people were smokin' something rotten that day. And now sitting strong in third place is Stepbrothers. Again, another mindless, witless, pointless movie with no humor and no real plot. And any movie with the biggest, worthless mouth in the world Rosie O'Donnel is automatically scratched off my list of movies to see. I will not watch or listen to one word from that boarish man-lady. Gives me the heebejeebies just thinking of her name!
  15. Chartreuse is a favorite of mine. I love orange and red as well. Most of my jigs are combo colored jigs.....chart/white, chart/orange, red/black, etc. I'll typically start out with a chartreuse/orange though. Most lakes around my area have perch and 'gills that the 'eyes feed on, and these colors represent those types of fish. White and blue are towards the bottom of my list, but I don't neglect them if the others aren't producing.
