    Prophet, thanks for those stats.
    Pretty impressive if you ask me.
    He's up there with some very good QBs.
    These are the type of stats that stick out to me.
    Not the 139 TDs with a under .500 winning percentage.
    I'd rather have less TDs and more wins.

    Brad has never been the flashy instant TD qb. he's steady, works the field, and takes what he can QB. he knows how to spread the field, can read D's, and can go through his receivers quickly and knows where his checkdowns are for that just before sack toss.

    I am glad we have him back a the anchor spot. I do miss the 3 play TD offence, but i also like having a winning season, and i believe that this is what Brad is gonna give us.

    i'm sure B.chill was looking at what he had with D.c and Brad. when he got done looking at it i'm sure 2 things wen thtough his head.
    do i gamble with very mixed odds.. or go with the secure route and mold my dynasty with someone I choose.

    i like his choice.

    I to miss that 3 play TD, but I look at it differently now.. If we play the field and can control the clock, it makes teams be hard pressed to match what the Vikes did.. I like the fact that
    BJ and the Vikes can take 4-5 minutes off the clock and score a TD..

    I liked the flashy days of the quick strike, but I guess if I had to choose, I would take what we have now over that.. I like ball control, and forcing the other team to score in a small amount of time..

    i got to admit, i think i've been more excited during these past 2 games then i was in the throw it up moss/culpepper era, i would be excited for a few plays there.. but this game was so intense all 60 minutes

    I think that it is much better to have an offense that can nickle and dime it down the field ticking away the clock rather than getting the TD in 3 plays.


    If I need any reason at all, it is so our defense stays rested for the entirety of the game.
    Which is exactly what are team is like this year.
    We play all four quarters.
