    [size=13pt]A start worth repeating[/size]

    Johnson plays well — minus one mistake — and earns nod for next game

    It's obvious that we don't have a say...but I sure hope that Brad gets the hook in favor of TJack if we fall behind!

    With only three games left and no 'Big Mo' goin in, I'm over it. Let Brad start, it doesn't much matter any more.

    If we wanted to follow up Pinners revenge game against the lions, we could start Brooks Bollinger against his former team. 8)

    The problem with Bollinger's revenge (assuming he's healthy) is that the Jets know him better than we do. Still, why not. It could work out.

    I don't think T-Jack will be the backup. I am pretty sure we will see Bollinger if needed. I thought that the win would quiet down the switch talks ... lets see if BJ can give us two in a row here.

    His performance was neither impressive, nor was it against a defense worth playing in the NFL. He did well against the Cards, but remember what happenned in the next game? That being said, I dont care much about the whole switch talk anymore. We're going with BJ and that's that. I dont think he gives us the best chance to win, but there ya go.

    well we're in the same position as last week. Bollinger is not fully fit and so not in a position to be starter. TJ is only a week further on from before in terms of readiness to be starter, so that leave BJ as the choice to start. That's not to say he can't get
    benched if he struggles this weekend but we'll have to wait and see. If the ground game can start well and give us early points like last week then there's less need to throw as many passes and so restrict the turnover chances.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    I'm agreeing with Storm on this, Brad didn't wow anyone with his performance...Pinner did.
    Pinner gave us a glimmer of hope that Chester won't have to carry the rock by himself, and that another solid RB exists on our roster.
    Moore has flashes of great play, then tapers, and Fason hasn't seen enough action to really honestly be evaluated, but Pinner meks me believe that we can STILL grind out some wins down the stretch.

    As for Johnson, the lack of comment is all about resignation.
    We've got him, we're stuck with him, and there's precious little we can do about it until next season.
    As sad as it's been, he's STILL the best we have to offer right now.
    As fans, all we can do is get behind him and cheer him on...even though some of us are quietly counting the days until the draft and free agency opens.


    So, give 'em hell, Brad.
    Every game from here on out is "must win" if the Vikes are to have a shot at the post season.
    And I seriously hope that you now have the game killing "INT for a TD" out of your system.
