    Nice article on Jackson

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_ylt=Ams7Yjd3TEAi5AqqTpGDMB9DubYF?slug=ms-minnesota081408&prov=yhoo&type=lgns

    It has been a long, hot summer for Tarvaris Jackson, much of it spent living up to what Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress says is the young quarterback’s motto: Never let ‘em see you sweat.
    It start out with the Jackson/Farve controversy but about halfway though the article it become very good reading.

    That is a pretty good read. Nice to see some articles not just saying he CAN'T get the job done. T-Jack knows what is ahead of him and is working hard. Hopefully it pays off in the end for him and for the fans.

    Nice read.
    With T-Jack in his 2nd year starting 3rd year in the system, I think we are going to be alright.
    With him looking to pass first instead of take off and run, that is also going to help our running attack once he proves himself.

    Good reading, it's time for Tarvaris to take a big step in showing us he is the Viking's QB. He should start to make better reads and become more comfortable in the pocket. I expect the playbook to open up some too, and we won't be so darn predictable, even if AD is in, it won't mean run everytime, we should have much better success fooling defenses with more plays and variation of formations.

    Thanks for the read my friend.

    “Dawg,” he replied, “you say that (expletive) again and I’m gonna fight you.”
    Good thing TJ can outrun Phat Pat.
    ;D

    The playbook opening up to pass with AD in has nothing to do with TJack's ability to read Defenses, it had to do with AD's in ability to pick up blitzes and pass block.
    TJ had his issues but he was not the reason they ran the ball every time AD was on the field.
    The true measure of a man is what he'd do knowing he'd never be found out.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Tarvaris. I like his arm strength and his movement. I like the way he has carried himself through the whole Favre circus.

    But at the same time, I would really rather be in the situation of us having a proven playoff QB, and the commentators saying "well, if they can stay healthy and just execute, they should make the NFC Championship", rather than people here writing that we should "give Tarvaris a chance" and "be optimistic", etc. There is a difference between knowledge and faith, and I would rather have knowledge.

    I mean, look around the NFL at almost any team. They almost all have QBs who went to big-time I-A colleges and who have proven themselves already in the NFL. Need I name names (Manning, Brady, Brees, Romo, Hasselbeck, Roethlisberger, etc, etc.). When I put "Jackson" up there, I just can't overcome the feeling that we are in trouble.

    Imagine we are playing Seattle or Dallas in the playoffs, and we are down by 13. We need our QB to engineer a long drive, and then another one, and the defense knows we have to throw it.

    I just don't have faith that we get that done. It is one thing to hand off to AP when we are ahead. Quite another to come back from down 13 vs. Hasselbeck or Romo in the playoffs.

    Did you see what happened in the the Denver game when we down 14 points? TJack is the sole reason that we got that game into overtime, he just hasnt had the chances to the spread the offense. Also in the redskins game, yeah he sucked at the beginning of the game... but later in the game when we needed to move the ball down the field i thought he looked pretty good... I think he will do just fine ;D
