    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!
    Good, I want every QB on our team to have the kind of career he was able to put together.

    I think he has the ability to get over that "hump". So many QBs fail to reach this and I think Harrington is one of them. It is going to be fun watching him play. I just hope we pull off longer drives and score some more offensive TDs. It will come but with time and patience.
    I see a lot of patience in him. He does not want to do it all at once which is what kills some QBs in this league. He shows command and definitly is composed. Good things to come my friends!

    Wow, I was amazed by TJack. I was amazed but also skeptical when it came to him. Skeptical that we traded 2 picks for the pick to get him when easily could have been found in the 3-4th round. Skeptical because Brady Quinn was available. Skeptical because he has a great arm but not the accuracy. All I got to say is, he can prove all the media wrong...and everyone else...and in one game nearly did so...

    I was also happy with TJs performance. The only issue I have with him is that most of his passes are high. It's been like that since pre-season. You will notice a lot of WR jumping or stretching to cath some of his passes.

    I'm hoping that will change with his development. I have seen experienced QBs like Favre, Hasselback and Brady throw lower (especially on hook routes) so that only the WR can get it. High pass could eventually lead to tipped-interceptions.

    I think it's also helping that the offense in general is clicking much better:
    - Playcalling is better
    - O-Line is holding it's ground
    - Running game is picking up
    - WRs are sure handed

    TJ is the future. I like the guy a lot.
    Halo 4. Start another fight.

    It's fun to see TJack develope.
    There's still a lot to learn but I think he's handling things just fine.
    I am a little worried about one of our WRs getting jacked up because of a high pass.
    He needs to learn to get them down a little when he can.

    Rememering of course several other teams were interested in him and the way the draft played out, I don't think he would have been available past the second round.....

    Here is a quote from one of the several threads I've already posted this in.

    Quarterbacks
    1. Matt Leinart (USC) 10. Arizona

    2. Vince Young (Texas) 3. Tennessee
    3. Jay Cutler (Vanderbilt) 11. Denver (from St. Louis)
    4. Kellen Clemens (Oregon) (49) N.Y. Jets (from Dallas)
    5. Brodie Croyle (Alabama) (85) Kansas City
    6. Omar Jacobs (Bowling Green) (164) Pittsburgh
    7. Charlie Whitehurst (Clemson) (81) San Diego
    8. Drew Olson (UCLA) Not Drafted
    9. Tarvaris Jackson (Alabama State) 32. (64) Minnesota (from Pittsburgh)
    10. Michael Robinson* (Penn State) (100) San Francisco
    11. Reggie McNeal (Texas A&M) (193) Cincinnati
    12. Darrell Hackney (UAB) Not Drafted
    13. Bruce Gradkowski (Toledo) (194) Tampa Bay (from New York Giants)
    14,. Travis Lulay (Montana State) Not Drafted
    15. Paul Pinegar (Fresno State) Not Drafted
    16. Brett Basanez (Northwestern) Not Drafted
    17. D.J. Shockley (Georgia) (223) Atlanta
    18. Erik Meyer (Eastern Washington) Not Drafted
    19. Josh Betts (Miami of Ohio) Not Drafted
    20. Brad Smith* (Missouri) (103) New York Jets
    Ingle Martin, QB Furman Not Ranked (148) Green Bay (from Atlanta)

    If memory servers we:

    a.
    Tried to move up for Cutler.
    Cost to much
    b.
    Targeted Clemens,
    OOPS, NYJ took him.
    c.
    We still needed a QB.

    Who then fit the system the best?

    Brodie Croyle (Alabama) (85) Kansas City

    Omar Jacobs (Bowling Green) (164) Pittsburgh
    Charlie Whitehurst (Clemson) (81) San Diego
    Drew Olson (UCLA) Not Drafted

    Come on.
    Gimme a break.
    Was he really that big of a reach considering how it all played out?
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Watch out or PHOD will hijack this thread.
    One game is just one game. Some good some bad. I think Childress is just "accent-u-ating the positive" Let's look at compusure after the Bears game.
