    Carr, Green, and Schaub would not have made sense for Minnesota.
    All 3 are clearly starting caliber QBs (well, we'll find out if Schaub is - but he certainly has been hyped as one).
    It wouldn't make sense for the Vikings, unless they were giving up on Jackson already, which doesn't appear to be the case.

    The Holcomb rumor has been around for a while now and its one of those that appears to help both teams.
    Here's a LINK http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/6973966
    to a piece by Schein with quotes from Holcomb expressing interest in the move to Minny.
    Holcomb would be an upgrade over Bollinger and add veteran depth.
    The Eagles will likely settle for a 7th round pick and be thrilled with a 6th.

    However, this trade will not occur until the Eagles are comfortable that McNabb is ready to go.
    They may also wait until late into pre-season to see if Holcomb's market value rises if other teams suffer injuries to their QBs.
    The Eagles love collecting draft picks and provided there are no injuries to the other 3 QBs on the roster, there is just no room for Holcomb.
    You lost me at Schein.
    I can't stand that dork who thinks he's all that.

    Our guess is that coach Brad Childress (and perhaps some folks in the front office who might be in jeopardy if owner Zygi Wilf decides to dump the coach) wants to have a solid Plan B in place in the event that Jackson can't cut it.
    Pure speculation on PFT's part.
    I quote directly from them...."Our guess is...".
    That means they have absolutely zero inside information that the Vikings are even interested in a veteran QB, or Holcomb specifically.

    I say, why send the Iggles a draft pick?
    Either wait and sign him when he's cut (since he's not slated to be the starter, he will have plenty of time to come up to speed), or offer Drew Henson straight up for Holcomb (Iggles brass laugh, though Henson might be eligible for the Iggles PS where Holcomb would not be).
    SKOL VIKINGS!

    Fair enough.
    The only real info there is that the potential move to Minny is clearly on Holcomb's mind and he sounds like he'd be quite happy with it.

    Waiting for him to get cut may work.
    It depends on how many other teams are looking to add a backup QB and how many others get hurt during pre-season/TC.
    The Eagles will not take another backup QB.

    Re: PFT reports that Vikes are looking for a veteran Quarterback

    My opinion is screw a veteran.
    Rich Gannon is on the payroll and has been helping with T. Jack the way it is.
    I say feed T. Jack to the wolves, let him get a better feel for the game and at the end of the year if it didn't fair well, we can pick up a guy in the draft being that we'll most likely have a decent pick in the 1st round if T. Jack don't pan out.
    Then start worrying more.
    The reports I read about T. Jack is that he's coming along very nicely.
    I think the kid's going to be a winner in this league and with time we'll see.

    For a 7th round pick, I'd snap him up. He know the system and he can help out TJ. So what if he's a clipboard holder? Plenty of 7th rounders haven't even made it that far. And it's not like the Vikes are low on salary cap.

    Thats exactly what I'm saying...who cares if we lose a 7th round pick.

    I don't really care what we do about a veteran backup QB.

    But I love your avatar and that's why I'm posting.

    Re: PFT reports that Vikes are looking for a veteran Quarterback

    IMO Holcomb would be an upgrade over Bollinger.
    It never hurts to upgrade the team especially if you can do it by trading a 7th rounder.
    I do believe TJack can be a winner but as far as "Screwing a veteran" is concerned that isn't too smart.
    It's always good to have a veteran back up to help a young QB.
    Holcomb, like Carr has never had a real good front line to protect him.
    I think he has more talent than his career proves (again just my opinion.)
    Bottom line he's better than Bollinger and Henson.
    That equals upgrade.

    Not to mention he is already familiar with our offense.
    That is a big plus IMO.
