    What team in the NFL backups don't have shaky track records? We are all different and that is what makes the world so unique. We will be fine.

    Of course they're records are shaky. That is why they are backups, not starters... :roll:

    I think everyone agrees with that article. But you may want to think about that the backups did poorly because they didn't have a great offensive line in front of them which we are going to have.

    IMHO I would almost rather see O'Sullivan throw passes than McMahon as we have yet to see what he can do. Then after that, I would rather see T.Jackson in there. I just have never liked McMahon. He is terrible, and of all the teams to pick him up, it had to be us.

    Same old news here... we get it. I can't remember who the other QBs are that are sitting around doing nothing, but I too can't have faith in Mikey Mc... but then again he has never worn purple! Keep our fingers crossed and hope he doesnt' have to get behind Matty B. Speaking of which, has anyone been to Matty B's new restaurant in downtown St. Paul?
    Ahh PURPLE is the color of all my Dreams!! GO VIKES!! Bring us a Lombardi!!

    What a typical offseason article. It basically says "Back-ups are not starters!"

    Why wouldn't they be shaky, backups just sit there and hold the clipboard.

    Re: Backups Track Records Are Shaky

    Backups are not starters...well, that's true but the Vikings QB is an old man by football standards. I think the article points out a valid concern.
    I think having Nall (who I don't like) would have been better than McMahon. I sure hope JT lights it up during preseason.


    One other point, the Vikings could mitigate a Johnson injury by having a solid running game, which is what Brad Childress expects I think and others have mentioned. So while it would't be the end of the world to have JT or MM as the starting QB, it might kill their playoff chances, even with a good running game.
