    I think that Jackson is ready for the challenge. I am not going to say that if we don't win the Super Bowl this year all is lost, but we definitely need to see some improvement out of T-Jack and the coaches seem to be confident that we will.
    I am very much looking forward to the addition of Berrian and Jackson having one more year under his belt. With Berrian stretching the field and one of the best RB tandems in the league (Before jumping on me there, I think Jax may be slightly better) he should be able to have some open looks at players down field ... and he of course was drafted in large part due to his amazing arm strength.
    All in all ... I think we have a lot to look forward to.
    I'm going to be disappointed with anything less than the second round of the playoffs.
    We have all the tools and players the FO wants to succeed, so I see no reason as a Viking fan why I shouldn't expect big things this year.
    Making the playoffs and going one and done just isn't going to cut it.
    I did not say I didn't expect a solid playoff run. I just think everyone is automatically saying that if we don't get to the Conference Championship game or whatever that it will automatically be T-Jack's fault.
    I just say ... we have the tools now. We have a damn good looking team on defense, we have a solid looking team on offense. Let's let it play out before we start blaming T-Jack for the loss we have not had yet.

    Re: With the Allen trade done, Will Jackson be good enough to win the SB?

    This morning PA & Dubay were talking on KFAN how Jackson quietly put up a QB rating of mid 80's for the second half of last year.


    The entire year he averaged 70.8 so that just shows how bad his first half of the season was.
    For the first half of the season I had no confidence whatsoever in him, he couldn't throw a completion if his life depended on it, but the second half was a different story.
    With another training camp under his belt he'll be just fine.

    Even without Jared Allen, the Vikings were a trendy pick as the team to beat in the NFC North this season.....

    What? How can you not enjoy is aesthetically fluid and linear writing style?

    You should at least respect that he is considerate enough to neatly capitalize and insert his name directly into the title so we know who to thank for such great wisdom.

    Kinda reminds me of one of the better Simpson episodes..

    After reading through a list of ridiculous names Homer gave him, including "Rembrandt Q. Einstein", "Handsome B. Wonderful", and "Hercules Rockefeller", the judge allows him to change his name to "Max Power" (which Homer got off a hair dryer and was the only name he spelled correctly).


    All the kids my age pee their pants, it's the coolest.

    Everybody needs to relax on Jackson.
    We have all be sucked into believing that if you dont succeed in the first year of your career that you are a failure.
    His rookie season I remember people saying he hadn't even taken snaps with the first offense until his first start in week 16.
    He's raw and everybody knew it when we drafted him.
    He has shown improvements and by the second half of this upcoming season I think everybody will be happy we drafted him.

    Only the dullest of bulbs expect a person tossed into the starting QB role from a small school to do well his first year.
    Most QBs from D1 school's sit on the sidelines for a couple of years before they take the reigns.

    Quote from the article above:
    With a proven pass rusher joining two Pro Bowl defensive tackles in Pat and Kevin Williams, the Vikings can lay claim to having the best defensive line in the league — and maybe the best defense, period.
    Wow, nice words! The scary thing is that it might be true

    (scary for Green Bay of course)
