    Will Johnson start the entire season?

    I don't think he will either be healthy enough, or effective enough to play the whole season.

    Nothing against him. He has had a great career, but in his later years his arm has dropped to that of a pop warner QB.

    He can read a D as good as Jesus, but when he can't throw the ball farther than 20 yards, we are going to have problems.

    Does anyone else think letting him start the season and then throwing Tarvaris in the mix later on is a good idea?

    I'm all for it. If Jackson is out QB of the future, the best way to teach him is by experience.

    Share your thoughts.

    Re: Will Johnson start the entire season?

    Even if Brad goes down, TJ won't be starting this year. Putting a rookie QB in a starting role before he is ready can do more harm than good. Childress knows this too, and TJ will ride the bench and learn this year.

    Besides, BJ may not have the gun that Daunte had, but he can still throw the ball more than 20 yards. Add to that the fact that we won't be relying on the deep threat nearly as often as we did in the past, and we will do fine.

    And I don't think BJ's wife will give singer the time of day :wink:.

    Brad will do just fine and not get injured if the rest of the offense does their job. :lol:

    I really don't know, but I think the protection will be good enough that he won't have much of an opportunity to be injured. I also think his lack of arm strength is overblown. I really think he can still throw the deep ball adequately. He might not be a great deep passer, but he wouldn't be in the NFL anymore if he couldn't get it there.

    I hope he stays healthy! I certainly do not want Mike Mahon as some sportswirters call him, starting for us.

    That was my 1111 post!



    Thank you Josdin for the sig

    Re: Will Johnson start the entire season?

    I can only imagine that he's gonna get hurt to some degree during the season. Whether or not he misses any games, we'll see. I hope he can play all 16+ games but I doubt it. For any QB to ride out the entire season injury free is rare.

    In either case, I wish him a healthy and productive year.
    Even babies know the difference.

    The only way I see him not starting the whole year is if we end up sucking and have no chance at the playoffs. Than we will proabably put Tarvaris Jackson in to see what he's got.

    Brad's a pretty tough guy, and with the addition of Hutch on his blind-side for his protection, he's got a great chance to be under center in all 16, and then some (I pray!).
