    Yeah, I think every team is a bad break away from serious problems. Thats not saying much. If the Colts lose Manning, they are still contenders??

    [size=18px]Jim Souhan: Vikings are bad break away from serious QB problem[/size]
    [size=18px]Brad Johnson must stay healthy or the Vikings will discover that his backup is the team's second-most important player.[/size]
    Jim Souhan, Star Tribune

    ...............

    Childress prides himself on being an offensive guru and an experienced coach. He should know that his legacy likely will be determined by the symbiotic relationship most successful coaches share with their quarterbacks.

    Vince Lombardi, Bart Starr. Tom Landry, Roger Staubach. Chuck Noll, Terry Bradshaw. Don Shula, Bob Griese. Bud Grant, Fran Tarkenton. Bill Belichick, Tom Brady. Bill Walsh, Joe Montana.

    .........................

    The Vikings are trying to catch the Bears, who have Brian Griese as a backup. Of all the veteran quarterbacks in the NFC North, Griese easily has the highest career completion percentage, 63.1. That's about 20 percent higher than McMahon's.
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
    i got to wipe the tears from my laughter ...hold on....

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    sniff...sniff... excuse me

    #1 ..... Dilfer/Billick anyone? and the fact he put Tarkington/Grant among the combos of multiple superbowl winners is laughable! no disrespect to them but if its about winning superbowls its time to get real.

    #2 ..... Brian Griese has a higher completion percentage (than the starter) Grossman! Grossmans completion% is at 53.8...53.8! (oh the QB rating is 20 pts higher than Grossman too.)

    does he want the vikings to sign Jeff George?

    the only team i see having a good situation is jacksonville, garrard proved he is possibly the perfect backup for a couple games last season.

    I was looking for a good laugh today and thats as good as it can get.. jimmy jimmy jimmy, what are you trying to feed us here? maybe hes upset that childress wont interview with him? and who could really blame him.

    I disagree about the Texans. I don't think Carr is a "stiff" as you say. Over the past two years he's had adequate numbers (16 TDs 14 Ints and 14 TDs 11 Ints) with a terrible offensive line (sacked 117 times over the past 2 seasons). I think if their line gets better, Carr is going to be a decent quarterback. Obviously the Texans think so too, or they wouldn't have extended Carr's contract 3 more years when they had the opportunity to draft any one of the big three quarterbacks in the draft.

    I also don't know how you could say Rosenfels is a "winner". He's only started two games in his career and has a completion percentage of under 50%. I think the Texans are in a lot more trouble than they would be otherwise if Carr goes down.

    The bad thing about the other teams listed there is a lot of them don't have a snowball's chance anyway! The Raiders, Packers, Bills, Jets and 49ers are all pretty much screwed no matter who is starting a quarterback.

    Re: Jim Souhan: Vikings are bad break away from serious QB p

    I really don't read too much into Childress bringing McMahon in for the #2 QB. I think he is more here for his knowledge of Childress' system, more-so to help Jackson and also Brad to some extent. I am assuming that since Childress did sign McMahon, that he is thinking that with our O-line strength, with us running the ball more, and with Brad throwing a lot of quick passes, that we can keep Johnson healthy for the whole season. That is really the only logical thinking behind our QB depth.

    If Brad goes down, obviously our season is done, and then McMahon isn't gonna play either, since we will want to get Jackson in there for some experience.

    The only way I see McMahon actually playing is if Brad has a minor(out maybe a few games) injury and we use mcMahon to throw the ball maybe 15 times a game, trying to win with running the ball, ST's, and great D play.

    But yeah, obviously a lot of teams are in trouble if their starting QB goes down, except for Atlanta, where they would probably be better off :lol: (and I am even a Vick fan).

    I say Rosenfels is a winner because he quarterbacked Iowa State to the first bowl win in the history of the school. He hasn't really gotten a chance in the NFL, but I think he's a gritty gutty competitor who would find ways to win games if given the chance.

    And how can a crappy team be in worse shape when the QB who's led them to crappy records during his entire time in the league is no longer leading them?

    LOL

    so is Clarret a winner too then? and chris weinke, and danny wuerfell (sp?)...seneca wallace? he won at iowa state.

    i understand you might think hes gritty and a competitor, but thats exactly what danny wuerfell was, and he turned out to be nothin in the NFL.

    Re: Jim Souhan: Vikings are bad break away from serious QB p

    Finally a reporter who says it like it is. We have a head coach who has failed just about in every way he could, starting with letting Pep go without a fight. His draft picks suck a$$ (and yeah i know he wasnt solely responsible). His infatuation with his old team sucks a$$. His fear of quality players (like a TO, Moss, or Pep) sucks a$$.

    If I were handing out grades Childress would have a d-

    Unfortunaly we are the ones who will suffer....not long tho, cause Wilf will fire his a$$
