    If the play of our QB improves even slightly, we will start winning more games.
    I am really hoping that TJack is able to evolve into the QB we need him to be by the end of this season.
    If not, then we need to find a new one.
    Ditto.

    What he said.
    What happened to the 3 to 4 years that tjack was going to need. Now he has a year and a half or he's out? Be patient.
    By the end of the season, Tarvaris should be showing some progress.
    If he has not, and is continuing to play like he did on Sunday, then that's probably all the Vikings need to see.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    While I'm still hoping TJack will improve as the year goes on and he gets more experience, I think QB would help us the most right now.
    I'd say try to get a vet in FA and maybe draft another late project...but, as mentioned, usually, these guys want to play, not help train someone to take their job!
    At this point, I can't even guess who might be available and a good fit for us.
    Good chance we're stuck with Holcomb and a project...

    I think, I hope, that our Oline is getting better.
    But, Some competition there wouldn't be a bad thing...especially at RT.
    Grabbing a good Center to replace Birk at some point would be good too.

    I would say our first round pick should probably be a WR or another DLineman, probably an end who can really get some pressure, depending on what sort of value falls to us...maybe RT if the top DEs and WRs are gone, and there is a beast available who would shore up that area for years to come.
    I would probably rather wait until later to draft another QB, unless that is absolutely the best value at our spot...

    As for picks, I know we traded one away for Holcomb...sixth I think.
    But, we get the Bronco's third, for letting them grab that DT in the fourth last year.
    Might help us move up, but at the current rate, we'll be picking pretty early anyway, might be best to put that extra pick to use.
    There are still some gems available in the third.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    Re: Needs of The Team/Fan Perspective

    I had to vote for the coaching. Jackson has been bad but i never expected him to be great so soon. When it comes to coaching though, the whole idea of zone blocking with the highest paid o-line in football pisses me off. Mainly the left side, they can pancake people all day if they just go right at the defense. Instead they are sitting back and being confused about who to pick up.

    I also don't like the play calling at this point. I read an article posted about AD's contract where if he is in on 45% of plays by the end of the year he gets another pay increase, has anybody seen numbers as to what percentage he is at so far? He needs to be out there much more, we haven't really surprised anybody yet by maybe leaving him in on 3rd down. Also i hated when we passed on first down from our 1 yard line, and then tried to run with CT. I say pound it 3 times with AD and hope for enough for a first.

    Lastly, i've been surprised this year that we haven't blown really any timeouts in the first halves of games, but whats up with chilly challenging that TD sunday in the 2nd half, that was just stupid.

    We need everything on that list, and ALL those needs start with coaching.

    So I picked coaching.
