    Tarvaris wants to stay in Minnesota

    Tarvaris wants to stay in Minnesota

    ...with Favre's track record, Jackson has no way of knowing whether he'll have a chance to be the Vikings' starting quarterback in 2010.

    But Jackson still says he wants to remain in Minnesota.

    Jackson told Charley Walters of the Pioneer Press that he wants to stick around, although he says he's heard nothing from the team about a new contract. Jackson will be a restricted free agent this off-season.

    ...
    Honestly, I hope he does stick around. I think he is a very good back up. Probably one of the best backups in the league.

    I don't think the TJack is starter material, but I am willing to be proven wrong in the event that Favre doesn't come back.

    I'd be glad to keep him around.

    Good choice Tarvaris. I doubt you'll be regarded nearly as highly around rest of the league.

    He's a top notch backup at this juncture of his career. As long as he is not gifted the starting slot and competes for it against someone that is better than the Bollingers of the world I am fine with it.

    Good for him. He knows this is the best place to be.

    Re:Tarvaris wants to stay in Minnesota

    Him saying he wants to stay I take with a grain of salt, of course he's gonna say that.
    Truth is he wants to be where he can make the most money, all players do.
    I think there will be some other teams that will be interested though. His numbers are not so bad, and he has improved every year.
    QB rating comp% avg int/td ratio
    2006 - 62.5 58.0 5.9 2
    2007 - 70.8 58.2 6.5 1.33
    2008 - 95.4 59.1 7.1 .222
    2009 - 113.4 66.7 9.6 0

    Okay so that is beyond missleading, but it's still cool to look at.

    I don’t see him as a quarterback that can lead a team to the super bowl, but he does make an excellent backup.

    Probably because it is the only place he could be, unless the UFL or CFL count.

    Re:Tarvaris wants to stay in Minnesota

    I'd be happy to keep him on the team. I'm not convinced yet he's starter material either (especially watching what a great QB can do with this offense), but worst case scenerio is he makes a hell of a backup...or starts, does poorly and ruins our season, lol

    Either way, sign him!

    Re:Tarvaris wants to stay in Minnesota

    I really don't know how I feel about this. I just don't think I want to see him start for this team again. UNLESS he can beat out a more prominent starter than sage, or that caliber QB...I honestly don't see it happening.
