    Re: A Positive Take...

    Finally a positive post. How any one can say bench TJ so he can learn more is crazy. Hes been through two training camps and almost a full season of sitting back and watching the game. At some point you have to get in there and play.
    With the defense this team has, this
    offense doenst need to be high powered. Protect the ball, control the clock and move methodically down the field. Thats what the West Coast offense is. Sure throw down the field to loosen them up, but manage the game, especially with a "rookie" QB. I have high hopes still even for this year, but realistically I expect TJ to have more struggles, Wilf lets Childress go into next year knowing its do or die in his last contract year and TJ will have no more excuses. But let the kid play.

    Re: A Positive Take...

    I have a positive take.

    Our defense, running backs, and O-line.
    I think we are pretty good in almost every area except QB. Which happens to be the most important position.


    Maybe Holcomb will come in and save the day.
    I don't think he will but we will see.


    I just think T-jack has had his chances and I still hear the give him a chance.
    Well his chances are running out.


    I think AP is a beast and our defense is awesome.
    We just need to tighten it up on the pass.

    How can you say our OL is a positive? Did you watch the game?

    Re: A Positive Take...

    T-Jack had all the time in the world.


    If we would run left a few times that might work.
    We seem to always run right or center.
    Are strong side is the left side.

    All the time in the world?! Are you kidding me?! What game were you watching? Half the time he could not even get through his drop. If you check the stats we were close to even running on both sides.

    Re: A Positive Take...

    We need to run to the left more.

    T-Jack had time.
    He needs to make it happen.


    Listen I was happy when we picked him but I have chnaged my mind.


    He has never given us any hope that he will do ok or even good in the NFL.


    What has he done that you said WOW! He can be good! Please tell me.

    You are the only one that thinks he had time. We cannot just run to the left. That is too predictable. He has our only rushing TD. He made some great throws in the game vs the Falcons. You have seen him play 4 games and only two he has had an offseason to prepare for. You are not thinking smart. Give him some time. Peyton Manning had a difficult first year and in thoughts suggest they should of got rid of Peyton. That would have been the dumbist decision ever. Now look at him. I am not saying he will be Peyton but he could!

    Thinking smart?
    I am not the one who keeps on comparing him to Manning.
    Everybody thought and knew Manning would turn into an awesome QB.


    His father was a hall of famer and everybody knew who Manning was.


    Nobody heard of T-Jack unless you followed a lot of college ball.
    To this day people ask me who is the Vikings QB.
    I say Tarvaris Jackson....Who???

    Manning would of never of received that kind of treatment.
    He was awesome in UT and everybody knew who he was in Knoxville and outside of Knoxville.


    Now you said great throws against the Falcons?
    When? AP made that screen pass happen.
    If it wasn't for that he would have thrown for about 75 yards.


    Serously...My Friend.... T-Jack is not our QB of the future so please stop your man crush.
