    I know what my situation is here. I'm really happy with coming back to Minnesota. Coach Childress, I really like him. I like what he's about. I know Tarvaris (Jackson) is young and has a lot of raw ability. Hopefully, I can come in and, if he's willing, I can give him ideas, and hopefully he'll listen......

    If I was writing my autobiography, I'd start it by saying, "When I hit the wall ..." If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can look it up. Or you can see it on ESPN. They run it a lot. (After running for a touchdown for the Washington Redskins in 1997, Frerotte head-butted a wall in the end zone and suffered a sprained neck.)
    I actually watched that game.
    Had some Skins fans over to the house for wings, beer and football.

    Damn did I raz them that day.
    One of them called me the day we signed him the first time.
    I hope he lost my number as I haven't heard from him yet this time around...... ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    I can really appreciate a guy who doesn't take himself too seriously and self-deprecates with humor!

    ... just let Frerotte compete with Tarvaris for the starting QB job, is all I ask.

    Obviously, the starting position on this team is not set in stone...

    Wow ... I had no clue you hated T-Jack? Thanks for clearing that up.

    :
    whats wrong with wanting Frerotte to compete with TJ.
    I think that no matter who we bring in, he should get a chance to win a starting spot, regardless of who we have.
    Why keep giving a guy chances if there is a guy who can perform?
    If Frerotte shows in Training Camp and Preseason that he is significantly better than TJ, then he should deserve to start.
    I"m not trying to hate on TJ, its the same with any position.
    If we bring in a undrafted OLB and he magically is an absolute stud, he should start over Leber.

    I am all for competition of course, but I also don't enter EVERY single thread and talk about how EVERY free agent QB on the market and all of those that we have should be starting on our team over T-Jack.
    And no ... you don't give him a chance to "win" the spot ... T-Jack is the starter unless he LOSES the spot. If coaches started giving the QBs who were the best in preseason the starting job every year then Derek Anderson still would not have a job.
