    Gannon foresees Jackson reaching potential in '08

    Disclaimer: I know a Gannon loves T-Jack thread was started, but I'll be damned that I can't find it anywhere now. A search for "Gannon" in the last 30 days doesn't locate it

    [size=13pt]Gannon foresees Jackson reaching potential in '08[/size]

    The former quarterback gushes about the young Vikings signal-caller, but cautions that the third-year player needs to stay healthy and build consistency.

    Let a offensive lineman named STINK say he is gonna suck and we have page after page of "I told you so"

    But let a QB actually comment on the kid and we get NADA.
    Whats up with that?





    You need to start gravitating towards that group, and it only comes through hard work, dedication, passion for the game. I think you need to become more vocal, more of a leader on the field and off the field with that football team, and that's hard to do when you're a young player."
    Good thing he has Booty sitting on the bench pushing him so that he works hard and gets more dedicated.

    Who frigging cares about a 3rd-string rookie QB?
    Tarvaris Jackson is going to be the QB of this team for the next 10 years.

    No time for sarcasm in the pre-pre-season.
    It's time for boundless optimism!

    Haha you guys sound like a married couple
    :P


    I have always like Gannon.
    He is the epitome of the 'developmental' QB.
    He was so average until later in his career when it seemed like a light bulb went off in his head.
    He found himself comfortable in the system in which he played, gained the maturity and confidence to run an offense and turned himself into an MVP QB.
    He is the guy I point to when I hear people say, "QBs come into the league with 'IT' or they don't".


    Its nice to read some positive stuff on TJ thats for sure. Tell STINK to stick with evaluating lineman or green chili.
    :P

    Re: Gannon foresees Jackson reaching potential in '08

    Like I mentioned, I have been hard on Tjack based on last year. I am excited that 2008 may be a great year for him. I'm even happy with the move to bring back Gus should he get hurt. Tjack simply needs to progress enough this year too keep a defense honest. We could be very good or we could struggle.

    Here is to 2008 and no more Multi Int came.
