    Wonder what the Chillers approach to playing our starters will be during pre-season.
    Hopefully the starters will get a few more reps.

    On a side note, I like our pre-season matchups.
    Should provide a good test for our guys.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

    Frankly, this is the best assessment of the Vikings I have seen in print, anywhere.
    It sounds like the author is actually familiar with the team and its personnel.

    "Is Jackson ready to be a starting quarterback?
    No player's performance will impact the Vikings' season more than that of the second-year quarterback. Jackson has all the physical tools to be an NFL starter, a full offseason of progress and the confidence that comes with entering the season atop the depth chart. With so little experience among the wide receivers, though, much of his success will rest upon the Vikings' ability to run the ball behind a talented offensive line. How quickly Jackson can work through his experience and acclimate himself to the nuances of playing the position at this level will determine how much freedom Childress will have with the offense."

    This, I believe, is the key for our season.
    Tom Brady was able to work wonders with a bunch of nondescript wideouts.
    Drops aside, if TJack can avoid turnovers and three-and-outs deep in his own territory, and the Vikings can move the chains, we have a chance to at least have an entertaining season.
