    For Frerotte, everything's so familiar, yet so new - Looks the part

    [size=13pt]Vikings: For Frerotte, everything's so familiar, yet so new[/size]

    A lot has changed at Winter Park since the quarterback's first stint with the Vikings, but his role will be much the same.

    The Vikings went through Wednesday's organized team activities without quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, who was given the day off to go home to Jackson, Miss., to take care of a personal matter, according to coach Brad Childress....

    Gus is definantly a upgrade over last years backups, in fact Bollinger won't even make the squad this year. I feel much more confidant that if something were to happen to Tarvaris, Frerotte won't miss a beat coming in off the bench.

    Another interesting read. Thanks

    Briefly: Wide receiver Bernard Berrian, on what he's learned about Jackson: "That he definitely loves to work. I mean, he's out in the weight room and sometimes I have to tell him, 'Tarvaris, you need to stop lifting weights, man. You're too big. They're going to put you on the other side of the ball.' "
    Sure glad somebody has finally lit a fire under TJ's ass and made him realize he needs to work hard and start producing this year.

    More important is adjusting to an offensive system that is almost completely foreign to Frerotte, who has played for seven teams during a 14-year career.
    I wonder how this sits with Marrs theory that NOT Childress is choosing players who best fit our system?

    This is going to be a big change from the sell job they had to do with the QB talent they brought in over the previous 2 seasons.

    It doesn't.


    I believe, just as we did with the drafting of TJ, Holcomb last year etc, that the staff is settling for a second or third option.

    Lets not forget they targeted two other QB's in that draft and tried to trade for a guy (Sage) that really fit the scheme this year.

    Show me another Vet out there that is available that they could have got that fits the scheme?

    I guess the closest would be Dilfer.
    I still wanted Volek though.
    IMO he was the best FA QB available.

    Yea, I had Volek and Sorgi right up there as well but then (as with all the good options) he was resigned because of a CAP windfall.
    ;D

    If the staff hadn't been targeting a DE in FA (used our top picks) maybe they would have tried to get DA, but again, I am not really sold on that cat yet either.

    Long story short is that I now believe that TJ is the man, will be the man for a long time and Gussy boy is just a stop gap until Booty matures a bit. That will leave us with to very good options as a starter and backup that have been "Grown" in the system.

    Just goes to show that the Front Office/Coaching staff might know more than some yutz like me.
    I would have given the picks a few years ago to get Cutler.
    ;D
