    Begin? Huh, I thought it had begun in about five other threads already. Guess I must have been having nightmares.

    How many games has of telling if Booty is going to be better at the WCOBooty played in the NFL?

    Who knows, both my suck donkey balls.
    But, there is no way
    than TJ.



    And it's not like Booty was highly regarded as top NFL talent as well.
    How can you say that?
    Booty has played in a pro style WCO at USC (NOT Alabama State) for 2 years and won 2 Rose Bowls... TJack is still learning, might have made great strides in the off season to really understand the WCO, but he didn't show it last year.
    Because, its COLLEGE!
    That's why.
    Jeesh.
    UltraVike, are you trying to tell me that the college you play at and the level of competition you face, your winning record in college, and the type of system you ran has absolutely NOTHING to do with your potential success in the NFL, "because it's college".
    I think EVERY NFL scout will disagree and most of the people on this board.

    AGAIN I'm not saying Booty is the Vikes starting QB, TJ is that.
    I'm saying that Booty is more prepared to run a WCO, but because your better prepared doesn't mean your the best choice.
    There are other factors like confidence in yourself, team and coaches that matters, before you can be a better choice.

    Does it really matter?
    TJ is starting and has way more experience as of now.
    I'm just glad that in CASE TJ does suck, we have someone besides BB to fall back on.
    If Booty plays this year then the Vikings have very big problems.

    Re: Booty more prepared as rookie than TJack

    So just to clarify, are you saying he is more prepared right now than TJ was a rookie or JDB is more prepared than TJ as 3 year veteran?

    First, NO WHERE have I said the I think Booty should start ahead of TJack.
    2nd, IMO from what I know and seen of Booty, in college facing the top teams in the country for 2 years, he comes with the knowledge and skills more suitable for the WCO type of offense than TJ had last year.
    3rd, being prepared to run an offense is not the only factor in being a starting QB.
    Other factors such as confidence, chemistry with players, etc. come into account.

    My hope is that TJack has turned the corner on his learning curve, become more accurate in putting the ball where receivers can get the YACs, and learns to stand calmly in the pocket, go through his progressions quickly and find the open guy.
    These are the things I think TJack lacks and Booty consistantly showed at USC.

    Well, I certainly can appreciate your affinity for JDB.
    Your assesment is in line with a lot of the expert pundits who said JDB is accurate and has experience in a "Pro Style Offense".
    He may be a very quick learner and a successful QB for us at some point.
    However, the title of the thread contradicts your number one point above to some degree. But I now see your angle on "prepared" and "should start".
    Thanks for the clarification.

    Your arguement has all the validity in the world if you are comparing the JDB to TJ last year.
    But to TJ and his preparedness (if that's a word) now versus a rookie, I think you need to look at what you mean by prepared.
    I mean TJ has had a full camp and season to learn the playbook, study film, learn from mistakes, work intimately with the coaching staff, etc.
    How would he not be more prepared than Booty?

    Re: Booty more prepared as rookie than TJack

    Wow.
    These threads kill me.

    At best I think we can say that Booty is better prepared than TJack was coming out of college.
    That may indeed translate into a starting spot for Booty somewhere down the road.

    Or it may not.


    Such is the predictability of QBs entering the NFL.

    Re: Booty more prepared as rookie than TJack

    Heh, c'mon... are you trying to tell me the Puss-10 is the "best competition in the country"??


    USC would lose at least 3 games in the SEC with any team they put on the field in the last 3 years.
    Cal would lose 4-5

    And they don't have much else in there

    Sorry, SEC man here... gotta take my shots at them when I can.


    On a side note, yeah, he should be more prepared than T-Jack was looking at when both came out of college....


    Trust me, I'm a doctor.
