    Re: Purple Nation Reacts

    Will the Vikings ever be a Super Bowl contender with Tarvaris Jackson as the starting QB?
    Yes 59%
    No 41%
    That says it all, 41% thinks we won't?? ???
    he's very young, has shown that he can be good and what about Eli manning in the NFC playoffs, or last year's Grossman in the Superbowl?
    Rosie O'Donnell is a dude!

    Re: Purple Nation Reacts

    Wow, I'm tired.
    I was thinking of saying something about having all the potential of either one of those two....

    Then I realized I was going to be talking about the potential of Rex Grossman.
    That was almost funny.

    Re: Purple Nation Reacts

    Also, it's odd that only 6% would like to see Anderson here, you'd expect more especially most people were giving TJ a hard time on those votings about him

    It appears that the polls are fairly representative of the members' opinions on pp.o.
    Some of the questions are written poorly.
    Around 62% of those participating said Childress should be fired if the Vikings aren't in the playoffs in '08 while 7% say no and 31% say it depends on other factors.
    I can't imagine any logical person voting for something other than 'it depends on other factors'.

    Yeah, that's Mackey very good dude, but just took over the .com part of that station about 8 months ago or so and is still learning, right after the clearchannel jerkoffs got rid of Adam Doc who was damn good at the internet part of the station.
