Teddy's Back!!

Recommended Posts

Teddy was classic Teddy in his admittedly very limited passing situations, indecisive. Even the announcers used that word to describe his interception.

Teddy has always been indecisive and not aggressive enough.

He looked like a fish out of water.  I was hoping for better for him.

I was watching his face on close ups for some kind of smile or excitement at all. Just a Deer-in-headlights stare! :(

Sam Bradford was gone, apparently, but now he’s back

Is he going to be brought back to the active roster?

We really haven’t seen much of Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Sam Bradford this season. There was his brilliant performance in the regular season opener against New Orleans, and his ill-fated attempt to come back from a knee injury against the Chicago Bears. The team placed him on injured reserve in early November (the move corresponded with Teddy Bridgewaterbeing activated from the PUP list), and at that point, Bradford just sort of disappeared.

Until today, according to Courtney Cronin of ESPN.

If the teams success is riding on Case’s shoulders and they wind up being the first team in NFL history to play at their home field - and they win: There will be a movie made.

We may just be watching the trailers now.

I’m not a big football fan to begin with but the last year (or two) has been a pretty darn good story.

My wife and I were talking today about how we haven’t really had a good coach since Bud Grant.  I looked up the coach history for the team and will stand by that.  At least for as much as I know about football.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford was placed on injured reserved earlier this season. He is eligible to return in the playoffs and is back in the facility per reports.

You don't have to like him but not many coaches in the history of the NFL did more than Dennis Green did. I would say he was a "good" coach.

That may be.  Like I said, I’m not into football THAT much so I’m basing my opinion on my gut and seeing the Vikings perform reliably for a change.

I’ve actually had personal interactions with Green when he was coaching here.  He was OK but I wasn’t in awe of him.  I guess it’s more accurate to say I’m neutral there.

It was his first plays in two years. Not even hit yet Teddy will be fine. Don't worry Shurmur and Case will be in Cleveland next season :) . I have no problem if Teddy ends up being out QB next season but you never know. Next year’s free agents for QB will be nuts , not saying the big names leave but it's going to be fun to watch who ends up where and who spends money on some old arms.

oopps

I'll take Teddy next year and ride Case into the play offs.

If Case is smart he will follow Shurmur were ever he goes but not to Cleveland.  I don't he wil be  that stupid again.

Why Teddy next year instead of Case? Are you not happy with good QB play?

I think Teddy is a better QB. Case is making the most of Shurmur's system.

I hate to see what the vikings offense looks like when they both are gone.

Generally speaking, such streaks in the NFL are an anomaly and players fall back into their typical play (see 2015 Cam Newton Vs 2016/2017).

That's the first 33 games of Case's career (which is up to the bye week of this season), and the last 6 games (after the bye week this year). You wouldn't want to give Case a Matt Flynn type contract only to see him fall back to the top line kind of stats.

    • I'd like to see you cut them in half first.......😋
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Water temperatures are starting in the low 70’s in the morning, reaching mid to upper 70’s in the evening.

      Minnesota walleye action can be hot running deep diving crank-baits straight, down rigging or lead core. Soft bottom areas can also be worked with spinners and a night crawler.  Fish have been favoring gold on bright days and orange, chartreus or pink in low light.  Many larger northern pike this last week in the boat via crank-baits just outside of rock reefs and points.

      Canadian walleye fishing has been more productive away from reefs and points in soft bottomed areas. The best method is to pull a spinner to find concentrations along the bottom and switch to jigging to fill out limits.

      Musky attitude in Canada varies day to day. Plenty of fish are still being caught in shallow weeds including a couple of 50+ giants this past week.  Fish are also being caught in more traditional mid-summer spots such as rock reefs and points.  The most productive baits this week were crane baits or other flat baits, buck tails and top waters. 

      Until next week,
      Sunset Lodge
       
    • we do a package similar to big dave's shrimp boil but with walleye layer of sliced new taters on the bottom, then the walleye filet, add carrots, bell pepper and sweet onion from the garden, w/butter pat and old bay i seal the packet and poke once with a fork to let some of the steam escape. on the grill at 350 for 40 minutes  
    • 5 qts pickled green beans, 2-2gal jars cukes.
    • Port Washington has been hot but mostly cohos.  A lot can change in a couple weeks.  Will wait and keep our options open as long as we can.
    • Do you boil the eggs before smoking them?
    • that's my thoughts to Bobber...
    • Good question Mike,  although eggs take on a lot of smoke fairly quick it might be worth trying it both ways. Whatta got too lose, eggs are cheap!!  🤓
