    Re: Vikings: Don’t Believe The 'Sota Hype

    The frenzy and excitement of free agency has been over for two months.
    He lost me there.
    All credibility out the window.

    My take.....

    a.
    TJ needs to play better and stay healthy.
    b.
    Whoever replaces (if he is suspended) Big Mac must hold his own.
    c.
    Phat Pat and Kwill need to collapse the pocket up the middle so the QB doesn't just step up basically negating JA's pass rush.
    d.
    AD and CT needs to stay healthy.
    e.
    Rice needs to continue to develop above the norm.
    f.
    Our backups need to step up if any of these come to fruition.

    etc etc etc

    The QB isn't the only thing that can derail the train my friends.

    When all the work that Tarvaris has put in this last couple years start to pay off, you'll see his head is screwed on tight. T-Jack will have better mechanics, better decision making, and a passer rating above 75 this season. Also we will see some 100 yard reception games from Rice, Wade, and Berrian, along with our already potent running attack, and you'd better believe in the "Sota" hype.

    Very true but he is the guy that can make the biggest difference on the success of this team. Those other points are minor. Well except for AD getting hurt but Taylor is capable of stepping in.

    I have to go with marstc09 on this one.
    TJack is the biggest risk factor on our team.
    Are there others?
    Of course.
    But none are as big of a factor as TJack.

    Right on, PurpleTide! ;D
    I like the enthusiasm I'm hearing in your post.
    If TJack can also get his completion rate to hover around 70% then we will be unstoppable! I'm gonna be a "Sota-hype" believer.
    I don't feel the author/hack really thought things out too much in the comparison department.
    Although I agree with his first two "over hypes", the Cards had a huge difference from the Vikings in that they had NO O-line for Edge and the organization as a whole stinks.
    The 49er's had injuries and the loss of Turner contributed to the back steps that Smith took.

    I'm with marstc09 too....
    QB is by far the most important position on the field.
    TJ still hasn't proven himself, if he does modest improvements then all is good.
    But if he has poor showings in GB and Indy games... then there will be doubt.
    Granted they are tough games, but there are always tough games and the best always get up for the big games.

    TJ may throw for 7 TD's, 0 INT's, and 800yards against the Cards, but if he has a 55 QB rating against Indy, I will think he's a problem.
    The Vikes need to win the BIG games and TJ has yet do win even one.
    Don't mention the Chargers game, as that was all AD.

    When you consider the fact that the play-offs are the biggest games of all, leading to the biggest of the biggest, it stands to reason that TJ has to perform in the big regular season games to show he's ready to step into the post season.

    No, I'm not putting the cart before the horse, I'm just saying that it doesn't help us to have the rest of the team carry our QB through the regular season.
    Ask Chicago what that's like.


    Jackson has to be ready to go immediately.
    The time for "learning curve" and "growing pains" is past.
    He's had that period...all last season.
    And while I don't expect perfection, I expect a much improved QB performance this season.


    Forget Booty, we won't see him this season.
    This is HIS time to grow and learn.
    But if Tarvaris stumbles and bumbles this season, expect to have a QB "controversy" next season.
