    Tom Powers: Do the Vikings have a long-term plan at QB?
    I know we have lots of QB threads out there, however, this is by Mr. Tom Powers. As most of you know, he is such a stellar reporter, anything he does, gets special treatment by me.
    I'm not really a fan of most "journalists"....mostly because I don't think they really know tha much about their subject matter...

    But this first article I agreed with. It seems that he researched his presentation by reading my posts...that may be why I approve.

    Of course, it would have been nice for him to credit me...but that would be asking too much.

    Everyonce in awhile he does come up with a good one. I guess my axe that I grind with him is that he has never once replied to any of my "Hate Mail" emails that follow one I don't like.

    Go figure huh? :laugh:

    Re:Tom Powers:Do the Vikings have long-term QB plan

    I would like to know how Ryan Perrilloux did this weekend and what is the vibe on how he performed. This guy is a player if he can get his act straightened out.

    Re:Tom Powers:Do the Vikings have long-term QB pla

    I think it is pretty clear at this point that the Vikings and their Front Office think that Tarvaris Jackson IS the QB of the future for this team.

    I am pretty meh on it. I by all means would like Favre over T-Jack ... but I am not as terrified by T-Jack as many are (though not nearly as overjoyed by him as some are either). I think that Perriloux was brought in as a "diamond in the rough" longshot that could pan out and they MAY have their eye on a QB for competition next season.

    But right now it is fairly evident that when Favre is done whether he has already played his last game or plays until his is 45 the Vikes are content to move forward with T-Jack.

    Re:Tom Powers:Do the Vikings have long-term QB pla

    Forced to look at the big picture in a moment of panic, we now know that the Vikings' backup plan at quarterback is to schlep along with what they have on the roster in the event of an emergency. OK, well that's their calculated gamble.

    What really bothers me is the fact that they appear to have no medium- or long-range plan in place at quarterback. There is no quarterback in training. There is no long-term successor being groomed. Nothing. Nada. Zippo.
    so TJ isn't the answer?? *shock* *horror*....

    Re:Tom Powers:Do the Vikings have long-term QB plan

    ...Meanwhile, there is too much water under the bridge here with regard to Tarvaris Jackson. Besides, Jackson didn't always seem that interested in learning. When Favre would come to the sideline to discuss certain situations, T-Jack occasionally was off staring into space at a different location...
    I observed that a bit, makes me nervous that Powers mentioned it because now it has no validity.

    The long term solution the masterminds have is to pray the Pats let Tom Brady go in a finacial move and scoop him up. Geniuses I tell ya they are pure genius!!! :blink:

    lol... People who knock on T-Jack crack me up. You act like you have "inside knowledge" that he sucks.

    Well, actually... he really does seem like the answer when you look at the numbers. His last year as a starter, he had a 95+ QB rating, and for the small amount of time playing last season when filling in for Favre, he played immaculate and finished with a 113.4 QB rating.

    Now, add two years behind Brett Favre, and you people STILL don't want to give him a chance and purely judge him on the 2.5 years he played coming immediately out of college with either Gus Frerotte, Brad Johnson, Brooks Bollinger or Kelly Holcomb as his "starter" to learn behind.

    The people who think T-Jack sucks and doesn't deserve to have another shot at starting simply don't understand the development process of a QB... media hacks included. Those are just facts, and the coaching staff seems to agree with me. What QB did we draft this year?

    Oh... right... none...

    It is not that we don't want to give him a chance; most feel he won't make it and there should be a backup plan. That is only smart given his past performances. You can put lipstick on a pig....oh wait that is another topic. Anyway I am not a fan at all but I will say that one more chance is the American way and I would be willing to give TJ another shot. But you have to understand he was not the answer the last few times in there, even his coach who drafted him had to feel that way of we wouldn't have Sage or Favre on our team. So please look at the other side and realize while he may deserve another chance we have good reason to doubt him. He was not that good and if he fails again is probably a bust!!

    inside knowledge that he sucks - no.. thought that was in the public domain and available to all.
    yes I'm fully aware that QBs need a developmental process and that very few come into the league and can be deemed as legitimate starters. Many do require awhile to develop and learn under an experienced QB but they have the basic capability to become starters in the league unlike TJ who, despite his best efforts, is not going to do that because he lacks the basic baseline to start from.
    The best he will ever be is a half decent #2 but that is not the same as a player of starting calibre.

    Re:Tom Powers:Do the Vikings have long-term QB plan

    lol... The best he'll be is a #2? He's played better than any other QB drafted that year, Vince Young included.

    Thinking he'll simply come out of college and play like Matt Ryan (your view) is simply out of touch with reality. It's just that simple.
