    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.
    How do you figure? He had just as many 40+ passes last year as he did in 2002 (the year he won the Superbowl, broke the Buc records for most single season touchdowns and lowest interception percent, and had the highest passer rating in the NFC) and while playing in 4 less games. He had almost as many 40+ yard passes last year as he had in the two years before he won the Superbowl, 2000 & 2001, combined (he also had better passer rating last season than the two years before he won the Superbowl.) By all stats and indications, Johnson was a better quarterback last season than he was 5 years ago.

    Only two starting quarterbacks in the NFC had a better passer rating than Johnson last season, and he outperformed 3 quarterbacks selected to the Pro Bowl. This was while playing the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 7th ranked defenses in the NFL.

    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.
    If the Cardinals are saying they want to avoid having Leinart (the most ready QB in the draft) play even one snap this season if at all possible, where does that leave Jackson? If people say Vince Young has a long way to go before he's ready...

    Revamped offensive line..........check.

    Pro Bowl FB known for his ability to block..............check.

    If you think Brad Childress brought in all this talent for protection instead of spending that money on a free agent QB which there were tons for the purpose of starting an unproven rookie that wasn't even projected in the 1st round then your fooling yourself.

    This offense has been built around brad and for brad. Childress wants to win and win now. Tavaris is here to learn from Brad.

    Next season? That is a different story.

    The voice of reason strikes again. It doesn't take a top-notch detective to interpret the clues that Childress & Co. have given us this offseason.

    Anyone who does not think that Brad will start all season - barring injury - has not taken a good look at our depth chart in the QB position...


    'nuff said.

    Re: Will Johnson start the entire season?

    Generally, I think the notion that Brad is fragile is a myth. He had some problems with the Vikings back in late 97-early 98 that got him that rep here, but he's largely been healthy the rest of his career. He may have gotten benched a few times, but I don't think he's missed more than about 3-4 games due to injury since the 98 season.

    Jackson won't be able to do enough of anything right to take Johnson's job on merit this season, and probably next as well. McMahon is crap. The only way Johnson comes out is if he is hurt.

    Arm strength is very overrated. This isn't the "bombs away" Vikings any more. He will need to prove he can throw deep, but it isn't as if he will have to do it four times a game. As long as he can find the open man, the Vikings offense should do "reasonably" well if the line provides any sort of blocking at all.
    SKOL VIKINGS!

    Re: Will Johnson start the entire season?

    Whats the fn point of even bringing this topic up again? All everyone does on here is argue the same ideals they argued last months and the month before that and the month before that about the same thing. Nobody every listens to facts on this sight every one is just all about speculation. If you want to argue about BJ some more just pull up one of the old threads about it, this is starting to get as bad all the the 1 million Daunte threads.
