    Jeff George seeks comeback with Minnesota Vikings

    Want a blast from the past? Quarterback Jeff George hopes the Vikings give him a chance to repeat his performance in 1999, when he led the team to an 8-2 finish and a victory over the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs.

    Around lunchtime Monday, George contacted Paul Allen, the radio voice of the Vikings and the co-host of a morning show on KFAN-AM, to see if Allen could gauge the team's interest.

    George told the Pioneer Press on Monday afternoon that he is intrigued by the potential of the Vikings' offense, as well as a chance to work with second-year quarterback Tarvaris Jackson.

    "I know they're banged up," said George, 39. "But with a running back like Adrian Peterson, I would be licking my chops. With that running back, you need someone who can throw that deep ball, and I know I still can. I don't care about the talent at receiver."

    George, who spent a week with the Oakland Raiders last season, hasn't thrown a pass in a regular season NFL game since 2001, when he started two games for the Washington Redskins.

    Look for more on this story in Tuesday's paper.

    I might puke if I see old Jeff George on the field wearing the Purple again.
    Thoughts?

    He's pretty immobile.
    Put him back there in the shotgun with his walker and let him zing the long ball.
    What do we have to lose?

    Look, he's already making friends!
    Good for him!

    Nice.

    You know that everytime someone says that this team proves them wrong, right?

    In fact, that's exactly what I remember someone typing during the Detroit game as Bollinger came into the game...

    IDC at this point our QB situation is a revolving door.T-Jack always getting 'injured' and Holcomb who should be dead at this point with his Rich Gannon scrambling ability.


    Bring em in, who cares.

    what do we have to lose at this point?
    Bring him in.
    He's cheap and has more experience than the 3 we have now combined.
    If he can hit a target we've already improved.

    He pretty much just dissed our whole receiving crew. Not a wise move. Probably does not help his cause. I am not saying we have the best WR crew but why the hell would they want him after he makes a comment like that. I just do not see it happening but who knows.

    Whether it's Jeff George or not, if Holcombe is out for any length of time & will miss games, a QB will need to be brought in here.

    Just say no to Aaron Brooks.
