    Re: Vikings' Jackson is Mr. Composure

    Very nice read indeed.

    Kindof funny when you think about it.
    Changing the plays without knowing it.
    So much for the need to audible when he is just making stuff up. ;D

    Tarvaris is our guy, and I see him taking big steps every week. We have the talent around him, and he just has to use all the skill players on this team. He's gonna hit a deep ball or two pretty soon, and against the lion's bad pass defense I see some explosive downfield plays this week.

    Pound it with AD, and let it fly if they stack the box.

    ...Avoiding jitters has long been one of Childress' top criteria for quarterbacks. He describes the position's ideal personality as "flat-line." He has spoken often about the dangers of a young quarterback who comes to the sideline with a "wide-eyed look" that conveys a frazzled and/or panicked mental state.

    Jackson, according to Childress, "has always been clear-eyed." Whereas a "wide-eyed" quarterback might struggle to focus on the sideline or have an inaccurate perception of the previous series...
    Kerry Collins is famous for that 'deer in the headlights' look.


    I'm sure enjoying watching this young team develop.

    Coaches liked what they saw from Tarvaris Jackson, even when the young QB couldn't hear what they were saying.
    Goddamn that negative local media!

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Overall, I have to agree, and I have to say, Tarvaris did a good job. I did think he looked too "panicked" at times, but the result is, we won, and he didn't do anything really stupid to lose us the game, so I have to say, he did good.

    I love the guy's arm strength. Obviously, a major NFL arm.

    He kind of reminds me a bit of the young Doug Williams at times: firing a howitzer 10 yards that then bounces off the receiver's chest, etc. (but let's not forget where Doug Williams ended up, career-wise: with a Ring). I realize this is maybe not a good comparison. But it occurred to me at times in the game.

    I like the way Tarvaris moves in the pocket. I think he has decent instincts and can feel the pressure.

    If he learns to calm down and not rush his throws, he should be good.

    Don't forget Doug Williams played in the SWAC...how coincidental, so did TJack!

    i think this is the best possible scenario we could all hope for.

    a new qb is the hardest job to learn, and perform well. but i think we have all the ingridients necessary to make "the making of a qb" the easiest:

    -an expereinced qb coach as the head coach -chili
    -two powerhouse back -taylor and AP (he may be a rookie, but he'll take off pressure)
    -dominant deffense that can score if necessary (all preseason, and twice already)
    - you recievers that he can delvelop relationships with, no old WR's that are 'set in their ways'

    i think TJack is the new franchise qb.. he's got all the ingridients
    Good observations, POTUS....work on that spelling and grammar though.

    I think under the new Chiller concept of Bevell getting to have more say with respect to play calling, I also assume that the QB coach is really the one teaching TJ and not so much the Chiller as some believe.

    By the by.
    Rogers is one hell of a coach. Who also has a pretty good understanding of this type of offense.
