    Atlest Brad Johnson finished above Vick.

    Unfortunately for Vikings fans, Johnson won very few and may have even lost a game or two. While the expectations and the necessity for success was not all that high, by-and-large this position did not even live up to those. In starting 14 games, he finished 19th in passing yardage—among all QB's who started an equal or greater number of contests only Michael Vick finished lower. He threw for only nine scores, which placed him tied for 31st in the league—behind the likes of part-time starters Jason Campbell, David Garrard, Damon Huard, and Joey Harrington. Perhaps the truest evaluation of success, QB rating, saw Johnson in 27th place.
    Bad stats anyway you look at it.

    I would say they are fair rankings, but I think he's a little too hard on Brad and not hard enough on the line.

    C-..... below average

    Yeah, you know the QB isn't doing great when you are barely better than Ron Mexico.

    FUTURE?

    In the regular season finale against the St. Louis Rams, rookies Jason Carter and Martin Nance—who actually started that game—may have given us a glimpse into the future at wide receiver for our team.
    Carter, Nance, Hyme and Bethel J?

    I didn't say it, just questioning it.

    He's a little soft on
    6-10 team, I guess that's why he writes for the "official" web site.
    I've been a Viking fan since I was just out of diapers, hopefully we get Super Bowl win before I go back in 'em.

    Should have graded out the coaching staff and personnel department also.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I think the defensive secondary deserved a lower grade than B-.
