    Vikings safety Darren Sharper played alongside three-time MVP quarterback Brett Favre for eight seasons in Green Bay. But, amid speculation that Favre might be interested in joining the Vikings, Sharper quickly backed his current quarterback, Tarvaris Jackson.....

    Re: Darren Sharper throws support behind Tarvaris Jackson

    Sharper, who is 32 and entering his 12th NFL season, isn't in bad shape himself. Last week, he clocked a 4.4-second 40-yard dash.

    "I use an electronic timer, so I can't lie to him," said Shaw, who has been training Sharper for the past nine years. "I had Deion (Sanders) and Michael Vick, guys that ran fast. Well, Deion didn't run 4.4 in his 12th season, and he was one of the fastest guys I ever worked with. So for Darren to run that was pretty impressive."
    Sweet!

    S Darren Sharper knows Brett Favre better than most of his teammates. But Sharper is fine with his quarterback.

    "T-Jack is our guy," Sharper said of Tarvaris Jackson. "I have the utmost confidence in Tarvaris.....

    It really sounds like the team is in shape and ready to get training camp started. The whole team knows how good they can be, and are all focused on what needs to be done to make a deep run into the post season.

    It's great to hear veterans putting their confidence in Tarvaris. This is the year T-Jack makes the jump to being a respected QB in this league.

    It's good to hear so many coaches & veteran players having confidence in T-Jack this year after his off-season improvements.

    That speaks volumes & has more merit than anything the media states or what I've read in forums.

    This does speak volumes about Farve because he does know him so well...it's only reinforcing how most of us feel about what Farve's role on the team should be.

    Sharper ran a 4.4? Holy shit! And packers fans were telling us he was out of shape and slow 2 years ago.

    The people on this site know more about football and TJack than Sharper and the coaching staff do.
