    Interesting Gus Stats

    http://blogs.startribune.com/vikingsblog/?p=2071

    1) Over the past five games since Frerotte became the Vikings starter in Week 3, he ranks third in passing yards in the NFL with 1,286. New Orleans’ Drew Brees is first with 1,665 yards and Chicago’s Kyle Orton is second with 1,370. Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers is fourth with 1,162.

    2) Frerotte’s 10 passes of 25-plus yards rank tied for second during the time he has been starting. Carolina’s Jake Delhomme and Houston’s Matt Schaub also have 10. Brees is the leader with 15.

    3) Frerotte’s 86-yard touchdown passes to Berrian in Week 6 against Detroit ranks as the third-longest play during the time Frerotte has been starting. Berrian did almost all the work on that play catching a short pass and going the distance. The longest touchdown during that time was a 96-yarder by the Lions’ Dan Orlovsky. Buffalo’s J.P. Losman has an 87-yard touchdown.

    Brees and Orton ... with a little help from the Vikings' defense.

    Re: Interesting Gus Stats

    Said like a true PR guy. Fred notices that the Viking PR guy didn’t state anything about three important QB stats:

    1) Points scored
    2) Red zone proficiency
    3) Interceptions

    You can throw for 600 yards a game, if they don’t result in touchdowns, Fred doesn’t care!!
    Could not have said it any better

    4 INTs in a close game is not a good thing.
    Call me crazy, can you imagine the people riding TJack's, BJ's, Bollinger's, Holcomb's, etc. collective asses with a 4 INT performance for a loss.
    The amazing this is that they were still in the game.

    I agree, but how much TD passes has he thrown? 5.
    5 Td passes in 5 games. That's good? doesn't sound good to me..

    5 turnovers in the game could have cost us the game, without that we could've easily scored 50+ points.

    The stats are not terrible for a journeyman QB who brought no expectations to the team when he signed. We all knew what he brought to the table when he was signed as the backup. But the offense looks better with him behind center than Jackson, who did bring expectations based on what the coaching staff proclaimed about his progression and that is the difference. Jackson looks like a bill of goods while Gus is what we knew he would be. Aggressive passer with a habit of throwing the ball where he shouldn't a little too often.

    Re: Interesting Gus Stats

    I agree about Gus, he is what he is and we all know what that is.
    Tjack needs confidence, plain and simple.
    When he is out there, he is all about deer in the headlights.
    Not a good thing.
    He has regressed from last year.
    Also a bad thing.
    However, chilly needs to let him have full control of the game like the colts give manning.
    How can you even begin to see what you have if you don't let him call a wider variety of plays.
    So i say its 50/50 between chilly sucking and tjack sucking.

    And the most important thing as a quarterback is winning. Romo is great in fantasy, but he doesn't win when the chips are on the table.

    Gus as won more games this year than any other QB we have, so he is still the best man for the job. And that isn't saying much
    We're bringing purple back.

    Now that is a very scary thought.
    Jackson would shit himself out on the field if he had to try what peyton does.


    Jackson is a bust and we need to find a franchise quarterback for this team next year.
