    Q&A on X's and O's for NFC

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/insider/columns/story?columnist=green_jeremy&id=3493039&action=log in&appRedirect=http%3a%2f%2finsider.espn.go.com%2f nfl%2finsider%2fcolumns%2fstory%3fcolumnist%3dgree n_jeremy%26id%3d3493039

    Can Minnesota Vikings QB Tarvaris Jackson make enough plays?
    The 2007 Vikings basically defied history. Minnesota became the first team with the top-ranked run defense and run offense to miss the playoffs since the 1982 Detroit Lions. The reason the Vikings missed the postseason was because of the inconsistent play at the QB position. The biggest goal in camp will be establishing a package that makes Jackson comfortable and allows him the opportunity to succeed. Last year it was apparent that they tried to give him too much. A more simplified offense that relies more on the short to intermediate passing game with high percentage throws will work. The Vikings are going to work on improving his accuracy and maintaining his confidence. Jackson doesn't need to be an elite QB, he just needs to develop into an above-average one and the Vikings' running game and defense should be able to do the rest.

    I hear that... amen.

    I read this article earlier today... it makes me sad that we are the first team to lead the league in rushing yards and rush defense but not make the playoffs since the Lions in the 80's.... I'm not completely sold when they blame TJack's game play... I feel our biggest faults were at the WR position. He'll have his chance to prove them wrong though.

    Well, perhaps... but Troy Williamson is gone and Bobby Wade is now our #3... T-Jack is still around...

    I think the coaches sorta saw it my way...

    I was going to say the same thing. Obviously the coaches thought the WR problem needed a fix. You must not have been too wrong like Kevon suggests.
