    Such a ridiculous argument. I could go with...

    We are 2-2 because of TJ (7-3 > 2-2)

    or

    Let's only look at games where Gus played poorly: TEN(L), CHI (L), GB (W), JAX (W). So in the majority of games Gus played, Gus played well enough to win the game.
    Yes and our punt coverage played well enough to win against New Orleans.

    WOW! You thought Gus played great both times we faced Detroit?

    Also, Gus threw tons of picks like usual but Chicago was one of his best games. He kept us in that one and we still lost. Special Teams lost it.

    I think most of Gus' games fall in the average category.

    When the season began 90% of posters on here would agree that all we needed was average QB play to win games, and Gus gave that to us.

    Gus was a very serviceable backup, there's no question.. but I think it's obvious that the Vikings had to overcome a lot of Ferrotte's errors...

    This could have happened to Jackson just as easily, I'm not saying he would have performed better... but allowing Ferrotte to come in and get the team running on all cylinders gave Jackson the opportunity to clear his head and focus more on the game, not the distractions surrounding him.

    I realize there are two sides to this argument... but I think Jackson will surprise you for the remainder of the season.

    Benching Jackson may prove to be the best coaching move of the season... for any NFL team.

    Great post CMac.
    Hopefully you are correct about TJ the rest of the way.
    I know I am excited to see how he does.

    Childress benched Jackson. He made that move.

    Are you proclaiming him not to be fired now?

    I'll be looking for your "Don't Fire Childress" sig soon.
