    Tarvaris Jackson - Often wounded QB returning to the lineup

    [size=13pt]Patrick Reusse: And returning to the lineup, an oft-wounded QB[/size]

    The Purple still sees good things from Tarvaris Jackson, but he has to last longer in games to do them.

    There are a couple of things to make clear here, in regards to what Vikings coach Brad Childress had to say about quarterback Tarvaris Jackson during his Monday media session.....

    Re: Tarvaris Jackson - Often wounded QB returning to the lineup


    Tarvaris needs to stay healthy the rest of the season so we can get a good long look at him. We have to see if this team can rally around him. Can he stay healthy. Can he execute this offense.

    I still think T-Jack gives us the best chance to win right now. The rest of the season we should win atleast 4, of the 7 games remaining, possibly 5 if we sweep the bears. I would love us to get on a small roll and win 2 or 3 weeks in a row. It's not impossible we just have to win out at home, and grab one road game, either at SF, or in Denver.

    The Vikings' quarterback carousel took another turn Monday as coach Brad Childress named Tarvaris Jackson the probable starter for Sunday's game against Oakland.........

    We still do not know enough about Tarvaris to decide whether he can be a good NFL quarterback.

    Tarvaris sustained a severe concussion. He was knocked unconscious. Not briefly, but for a couple of minutes.

    That is a very serious injury.

    If he sustained another concussion within a certain period of time, he could have brain damage.

    If the doctors clear him, play him. Otherwise, rest him.

    Show us what ya got, kid. We believe in you.


    Go Vikings!

    It's a dilemma for Bevell...does he play his Crappy rookie QB, his Crappy seasoned QB,
    or his Crappy Veteran QB...or he could shock us all and play his Crappy Recently Signed QB.
    Thank goodness for options.

    Re: Tarvaris Jackson - Often wounded QB returning to the lineup

    You gotta play Jackson...see what he's made of. And he's gotta play hurt if need be. Enough of the QB shuffle! You don't think other QB's get hit and keep coming back? He's young, sturdy, not made of glass...we must find out in these last 7 games if he has the "stuff" to make it in the bigs. And that means more than just his physical ability...this game is hugely mental in preparation, toughness, awareness, etc.
