    Another year, another quarterback for Vikings

    [size=13pt]Another year, another quarterback for Vikings[/size]

    Brett Favre became Green Bay's starting quarterback during the fourth game of the 1992 season and didn't relinquish that role for the next 16 years. There is a whole generation of Packers fans who have never known another No. 1 signal-caller....

    I still think that Todd Boumann and Gus Frerotte are better than Tarvaris, and they were better than Culpepper. The reason is the following:

    - Ability to read a defense
    - Ability to not get flustered by the blitz
    - Good NFL QB mechanics

    Sorry, but I'm good with T. Jax way more then these other two.
    I just find it amazing that people throw T. Jax under the bus after 1 full season of starting.
    It truly baffles me.
    He's a young kid, coming a very small school, GIVE THE KID SOME TIME, SOME EXPERIENCE, SOME HOPE!!!!

    Got to agree, lol When were Frerotte and Boumann a good QB?
    TJ can handle 'em both, and i expect him being fine in his 2nd year as starter
    Rosie O'Donnell is a dude!

    Nowhere did they say they were ready to can TJack, he just said he thought they were better, and I partly agree with that.
    You can't deny that Jackson get flustered by the blitz, and has a hard itme reading the blitz and has poor mechanics.
    Bouman and Frerotte are better at that stuff.
    They may very well be better quarterbacks, but Jackson just needs time to learn.

    all three of those reasons are exactly why i'm glad we picked him up... for a backup

    Fumbling is Peps biggest issue. He would have been a good QB for us.
    If i remember the situation was all about Childress not wanting to give him a playbook.
    WTF was that about? Why didn't he give him a play book. Shouldn't you want you starting QB to learn you offensive system ASAP?

    there was a time when he was an elite QB for us, but i tend to think alot of it was randy moss's contribution which made the game easier on daunte's mind..he wasnt the greatest decision maker, but he was accurate most of the time, and had a monster arm..with moss, decision making was easier since 3 defensive backs were always covering randy at any given time

    as far as daunte's leaving, that was up to him..he felt he deserved a huge raise, even though he hadnt played more than a few games the season before, and he played absolutely pathetic in those games, coincidently without moss
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.
