    The job probably is his, but he’s going to have to work for it.

    Re: Tarvaris Jackson: Vikings' Quarterback of the Future?

    Before fans, many of whom have been skeptical about Jackson's ability, get too excited, it's important to think about how realistic the replacement options are.
    Donovan McNabb has had his name bandied about, but he's still under contract with the Eagles, and the asking price would probably be too steep to warrant pursuit.
    Exactly! Nuff said right there.

    Re: Tarvaris Jackson: Vikings' Quarterback of the Future?

    I didn't read all the threads in this post, but Singer's thread mentioned that Childress said, "Nothing of that group gets me jumping up and down." Yet in the original story from the St. Paul Pioneer Press we see this quote from Childress: "There are many improvements that must be made for next season, starting at quarterback. Tarvaris Jackson is still the favorite for the job, but Childress said the Vikings will examine other candidates that could be available through free agency and trades.
    That kinda sounds like these two writers aren't on the same wavelength.

    Re: Tarvaris Jackson: Vikings' Quarterback of the Future?

    The whole TJack project reminds me of the Cordell Stewart project that failed miserably. There is no question he is talented.(So was Cordell Stewart) The big problem I see with the situation as a whole is he is the best QB on the roster. If we had a back-up that was good enough there could be more competition for the job. If TJack was a great QB what would we do if he was out for seven games ?

    We need to at least address this issue.
    1) To push TJ harder to earn the job
    2) give us a viable backup when TJ goes down as he did frequently last season and 3) start considering the fact that that TJ may not become the QB we need him to be.

    If TJ doesn't have considerable improvement in 2008, then what do you do if you're the Vikings?
    I think that scenario needs to be considered now vs. waiting to see what happens.
    This should be the Vikings org making the decision, not just Childress, as it should be listed as one of the biggest risks on the club right now.

    Hmmm ... I don't think it is the two writers that aren't on the same wavelength. I don't think Childress is sure what he thinks.

    I don't think it's the biggest risk right now... the biggest risk would be panicking like some of you are in wanting to draft a QB or just give up tons of picks to get one....
    you guys are soo impatient.. when QB is the one position that takes the longest to develop.
    Look at how long it took Eli to get it together...

    I guarantee you we get TJ some viable options in the passing game, or the receivers have start to develop, then you'll know what we have and where to go from there.... We should bring in a vet to help him develop and mentor him.... like a Steve McNair if he gets cut...

    but panicking now would only set the franchise back years and years...


    ANyone who thought TJ would play better than he did this year with the receivers he had was fooling himself... we all knew we wouldn't have a very good passing game this past year.. what?? with two rookies, a bust of a 1st rounder who can't catch, a castaway in fergie.. and OMG.. the amazing Bobby Wade.. who so often get's compared Jerry Rice.. right???

    C'mon... we'll be fine... we just need help with better passing options and the line pass blocking better...

    Look at the superbowl and tom brady... he played about as good as TJ did except for about two or three games..

    You can't be a good/effective QB with 270+ pound dudes in your face all day long... it's just not gonna happen...
