    Interesting Questions And Answers

    http://nc.startribune.com/blogs/vikings/
    I found this to be interesting....It's from the Star/Tribune blog entitled "Access Vikings." Look at all the questions for an interesting read.

    You asked for it (well, actually no one did but we thought it was a good idea), so here it is: The first weekly Q&A of the 2008 offseason. Without further ado:

    Bucky Scribner: In your humble opinion, are the players truly behind Tarvaris Jackson as their future quarterback?

    KS: I think most players realize Tarvaris is the most comfortable option for 2008. Many of them have spent two years working with him, and they know that a new quarterback – even if it’s an accomplished guy like Donovan McNabb – would take time and a lot of extra work to get comfortable with. I’m sure there are plenty of players who know Tarvaris has a lot of work ahead of him, but I think they support him over bringing in someone else and starting over again. More than anything, they want stability, and Tarvaris is the guy that offers it...

    Exactly

    I'm behind Jackson for a few reasons..

    1. Granted he didn't play the greatest.. he is still GROWING

    2. He has the most experience with the team

    3. There is not really a better option out there IMO

    Re: Interesting Questions And Answers

    akvikesfan: Can you clarify exactly what Childress and Zygi Wilf have stated as far as off season spending goes? A lot of people are throwing around a lot of different statements from not spending a dime to wanting to max out this year’s cap limit.

    KS: My understanding is that the Wilfs are prepared to spend whatever Childress and Rick Spielman ask them to spend. They have made this clear on multiple occasions. Part of that sentiment, however, is based on Spielman’s stated desire to build through the draft and supplement through free agency. In other words, the Wilfs know Spielman probably isn’t going to ask them to sign another team’s franchise player, for instance.

    This offseason, I would expect another year of signing complementary players on the free agent market and then pursuing core players in the draft.

    That would suggest to me that we look for a WR via FA and target a good pass rushing DE in the draft... course I could be completely wrong on that idea.

    Well, I guess after reading this it answers any questions that may be discussed on PP.O until the draft. So we can all quit posting.

    Re: Interesting Questions And Answers

    I really like the last sentence in this article the best and hope it's true. I also think that the take on Shank was right on the money.

    Nothing I read in here about this season and T.Jack being seen as the number one guy for B.Childress surprised me.

    Some very interesting questions and answers.

    Thanks COJOMAY.


    Cheers!

    Even if Briggs is great, I think he'll want to get paid beyond reason this FA, i.e. more than production will be

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.
