    Derek Anderson and the Vikings: A Perfect Fit?

    [size=13pt]Derek Anderson and the Minnesota Vikings: A Perfect Fit?[/size]

    by Erin McLaughlin


    Earlier this week Eric Mangini stated that whoever wins the quarterback battle will be the guy for the year. That is barring injury of of course. He also stated that neither Brady Quinn nor Derek Anderson would be going anywhere. Do you believe him? Neither do I.

    I wouldn't mind Anderson

    I think in the right system he could be a pretty productive QB

    Anderson sucks balls. He had 1 good year and that was because Braylon Edwards was a beast(1300yds 16tds).

    Re: Derek Anderson and the Vikings: A Perfect Fit?

    This just seems like a perfect fit. The Vikings do run a west coast type offense but it is one that features more of a big play threat than others. That is why Favre would have been a good fit. With Favre out of the picture and the Vikings not really having interest in Vick, Anderson looks like their best option.
    Lost me here, Favre's deep ball isn't his best asset any longer it was his familiarity with the scheme and terminology that made it a fit for him, something Vick and Anderson don't have the same exposure too.
    Well Vick did have a year and it and it wasn't that great for him.

    I would rather have Quinn than Anderson. But that's not likely to happen.
    What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. Its the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"
