    Frerotte enjoying more freedom

    [size=13pt]Vikings Insider: Frerotte enjoying more freedom[/size]

    The veteran can't go wild, but he has more leeway to call audibles and have input on game plans than previous quarterbacks.

    Nonetheless, the fact Frerotte has been allowed to completely change a play on two occasions actually shows the level of trust coach Brad Childress and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell have in him.
    Where now, are all the yutzes who claimed Jackson was calling audibles?

    Childress is growing and learning as a coach, It's good to know he has the trust in Frerotte that he allows him to audible once in a while.

    Waiting for the TJack supporters to come in here and say that TJack would be just as successful if he had more freedom... ;D

    I think that TJ's play would be better if he had more freedom, but Frerotte is growing on me ( even though he isn't all that spectacular ) But to say he would be just as successful? Frerotte is a proven veteran, recognizing schemes and match-ups i think Frerotte has the edge

    Let the players grow up a bit.
    Frerotte deserves to opp to call audibles.
    He has been around long enough.

    Kind of makes you wonder why they started him (TJ) at the beginning of the season.
    He must have taken steps backwards in the real time situations of the game.
    Progress?

    Frerotte didn't know the system as well at the beginning of the season?
    I don't think I ever questioned who the better QB was.
    Experience counts for a lot!

    I just wish we could luck out like the Falcons or the Bills or the Broncos and pick the right guy to succeed in the draft.


    Anyway, I am glad that Frerotte is getting his chance to run the offense.

    Obviously he would have.... when your season was as bad as his had been, there is only one way to go... and that's up.

    That freedom has done alot of good today when you take 10 years to throw it.
