    QB quandaries

    It's not often that the Vikings make front page news anywhere outside of Minnesota these days.
    Given the lack of opportunity to prove himself as yet, this is probably a more meaningful point than whether Tarvaris should have been ranked last in the ESPN poll. . .

    We do indeed have an unnerving lack of experience at QB right now.
    Have I ever told you what an outstanding humanitarian I am?

    Re: Roll the Dice

    It seemed to have worked out just fine when we brought back both Cunningham and George to play QB for us...let's give TJack a chance.
    If the OL can be solidified, the WR corps made to catch what hits them in the hands and the RBs do what they are capable of doing, then TJack will have no excuses if he doesn't deliver.
    But don't be surprised if he steps up and delivers!
    Heck, Rottenburger did it a couple of years ago...and last season showed that he wasn't really an elite QB that people thought that he was two years ago.
    Same for Grossman...give TJack the kind of team that surrounded Wrecks and he does MUCH BETTER IMO!
    We can be the same kind of team that the Bears were last season if everyone steps up does what they are capable of...better even, since TJack will be an improvement over Grossman!

    Here's the link w/out new poster substitutions (the site does it automatically to discourage spammers):

    Nothing you could have done about it!
    As I noted, the site does that to keep spamming to a minimum.

    Re: Roll the Dice

    it only breaks up links for the first 10 posts or something like that, another measure to keep the spammers at bay.

    Yeah...welcome aboard!
    You leave the waterboy title behind after 10 posts...just ONE MORE reason to post often and post well...and you will do just fine here if you just do those two things!

    Re: QB quandaries

    I'm very hopeful for Tarvaris. With a franchise type QB on the board in Quinn and our coaches don't go in the direction ... it seems to me that they have confidence in the kid. Obviously there is nowhere on this list that he could be ranked other than 32nd and I am very nervous that we have a lot of pieces falling in and if the QB does not fall in, it might not matter ... but I have faith right now and hopefully still have it come week six or seven.

    We have to give him a shot...if he fails, we are only one year behind...because we WILL be drafting Brohm next season if we suck!
