I believe Bridgewater will become a great leader of the Vikings. He has all the tools for becoming a great Quarterback an with Offensive coach we have in Norv, he will become a great asset to the Vikings right out of the box.

Someone is putting the cart before the horse. No guarantees that the Vikes will take Bridgewater. Let's wait and see who they take first. Norv has been a good QB coach, hope he hasn't lost his touch.

I don't think Turner has lost it The Browns WR Josh Gordon had 1,646 yards with a average QBs throwing to him last year. Bridgewater would be great I think & so would Manziel both these guys can play. The top 10 QBs in this draft has now had a tryout by the Vikes. Will a QB go in the first round or are the Vikes gun shy & hold off to the later rounds to take a QB. Will we miss out on good QB & Will that 2011 draft pick Ponder go on ruining the future of the Vikings.

I'm thinking that the Vikings won't take Bridgewater. I mean forget the pro-day and forget that frail body. He has been given the seal of failure by the one guy who always picks losing QBs. That my friends rings the death knoll of QBs for the Vikings.

Before the combine & his proday Bridgewater was thought to be the best QB going into this draft. I really havn't seen anything to change my mind about him. I know his small body frame is a concern but his accuracy & game time decision making still has him as the number one QB on my board. Manziel is very young coming out of college after his sophomore season & because of that I think he will slip more then people think. Manziel looks very good for being such a young guy. I think in a year or two he will improve on his decision making & find the open receiver before he takes off & runs. I like Manziel & I think his up side is high being he is young & he is as good as any of the QBs in this draft. I have Manziel sliping in my mock draft & the Vikes can't pass him by. lol

I see that QB AJ McCarron is starting a reality show I wouldn't want that sideshow coming into the locker room. IF was looking at QBs I would be saying Next!

I might just put my foot through the t.v. on draft night if we draft Bridgewater. I have watched a lot of his supposed highlight films and see absolutely nothing that says he is any better than any of the other top Q.B.'s and in my opinion is the worst of the bunch. So what if he took snaps from under center; about 40 % of the snaps now are from either a pistol or shotgun. Small hands and cold weather spell disaster. A somewhat sidearmed delivery and a wrist snap for velocity mean a lot of passes get knocked down at the line of scrimmage. Average percentage of completions on deep passes and if you look at his highlight packages about 30-40% of the completions were contested which, in the NFL means a lot of interceptions or incompletions.

I don't think any QB in this draft could start for us and win. Pick best LB or CB at 8 or move back and get more value in the second round.

Please, please, please don't draft Bridgewater.

Johnny Manziel Norv Turner wants to throw deep Manziel does that better then any QB in this draft He has nice big hands to play in the cold weather :) His downside is size at 5 ft 11 3/4 207 LBS Its not how tall he is but His weight I do have a problem with. but that's about the only problem I have with him. Turner said not every play plays out a script That you want a QB that can improvise. That describes Manziel. Sit him for this year He has a lot of upside coming out of college two year early Manziel might be to much to pass up.

Flatulence Fred
FART REPORT>

Excessive Gas Types and Symptoms:

Many terms are used to describe excessive gas: burping, belching, flatulence, bloating.“Most of them are synonyms and describe whether the gas exits from the top or bottom of the gastrointestinal tract,” says Stephen Bickston, MD, professor of internal medicine and director of the inflammatory bowel disease program at Virginia Commonwealth University Health Center in Richmond, Va--

For example, burping and belching usually refer to gas that escapes from the mouth while flatulence, or farting, is intestinal gas that escapes from the rectum. Bloating is used to describe the sensation of excess stomach gas that has not yet been released--

Some gas after eating — and releasing it through belching or flatulence — is normal. According to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse, most people produce as many as one to four pints of gas a day, which they pass, on average, about 14 times a day.--

However, if you’re experiencing painful gas and the embarrassment of chronic and foul smelling flatulence, you can start to play detective and try to eliminate the cause--

Excessive Gas: Foods to Avoid:

Foods such as dairy products, beans, and certain vegetables cause some people to have excessive gas. Foods like these contain fiber, sugars, and starches that don't get digested and absorbed, eventually causing intestinal gas when they are finally broken down in the large intestine--

One way to manage flatulence and belching is to eat fewer of the well-known gassy foods. Everyone reacts differently, but common gassy foods are fruits, such as apples and pears, certain vegetables including broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and onions, whole grains like bran, and dairy products, from milk to cheese to ice cream--

Foods containing sorbitol, a naturally occurring sugar found in fruits, are on some people’s gassy-foods list. Others are bothered by carbonated soft drinks and fruit drinks. If you discover that these foods are causing you excess gas, eliminate them from your diet or eat them in small portions. When it comes to foods to avoid, the key is to be like the Greeks, Dr. Bickston says.“Everything in moderation.”

Keep in mind that almost any food or combination of foods can cause gas in a particular individual.“Certain foods don’t get along together in certain people,” says Donald Novey, MD, an integrative medicine physician with the Advocate Medical Group in Park Ridge, Ill.“For example, some people find they are gassy if they eat fruits with proteins, or if they eat starches and proteins together. It’s personal and requires a little experimentation to find out what the culprits are.” Dr. Novey suggests keeping a food diary and noting when you feel gassy.“If you find you’re gassy after eating a certain food, eliminate it from your diet and see if it helps.”

Cooking may help with the breakdown of some of the offending ingredients, Bickston says.“But the style of cooking can also decrease healthy chemicals found in vegetables. Boiling seems to breakdown chlorophyll and other desirable ingredients.” Look for recipes that call for steaming as that seems to be a better cooking method for gassy foods---
