    Kevin Seifert, of the Star-Tribune, reports whichever rookie quarterback Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress picks in the 2006 NFL Draft, he will not likely play before the 2007 season.

    Childress said, "I would say you wouldn't want that [newcomer] on the field the first year. Maybe he would play in the preseason. You would have to say this: If we got that guy and he has to play in the first year, then things [have gone wrong]. That means some guys have gone down in a hurry."

    Re: Vikings Rookie quarterback not likely to play in 2006 se

    This is an excerpt from another article that I read on Childress;

    But while Childress reiterated the team almost certainly will draft a quarterback next month, its target might be a lesser-known player rather than one of the generally accepted blue-chip quarterbacks who will be drafted in the top half of the first round.

    "I know there are the preeminent guys that are there," Childress said of USC's Matt Leinart, Texas' Vince Young and Vanderbilt's Jay Cutler.

    "But there are some names that are down the line as well. ... Regardless of who is starting this year, we want to take a developmental guy. I think it behooves you to have your eye on a guy that's got the skill set that you're looking for and try to get that up to speed ... a guy that you're serious about bringing along within the system."

    Alabama's Brodie Croyle, Clemson's Charlie White- hurst and Bowling Green's Omar Jacobs are among the second tier of available quarterbacks. They are projected as second- or third-round selections; the Vikings will have at least three picks in those rounds and possibly four if they decline to match Seattle's offer sheet for receiver Nate Burleson.

    Whomever the Vikings select, Childress said he has no intention to play him before the 2007 season. Brad Johnson, who turns 38 in September, is the Vikings' starter and Mike McMahon is expected to back him up. J.T. O'Sullivan currently is the No. 3 quarterback.

    "I would say you wouldn't want that [newcomer] on the field the first year," Childress said. "Maybe he would play in the preseason. You would have to say this: If we got that guy and he has to play in the first year, then things [have gone wrong]. That means some guys have gone down in a hurry."

    everybody start jumping out of buildings, mike mcmahon will play if brad goes down!..this is horrible news if brad gets injured because id rather give the job to a 7th round rookie rather than allowing mcmahon to even take a kneel at the end of a game
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Nothing groundbreaking. Most, if not all coaches in the NFL would say the same thing about a rookie QB playing the first year.
