    T-Jack, Bollinger, or a rookie....

    I would've thrown Russell in there but its obvious he will be off the board.
    This is a subject i'm torn on.
    I like T-Jack a lot, but is he the future? Does he really have what it takes to lead an NFL team? We will soon find out. I've also heard grumbles, that Childress really like Bollinger, so we'll see.
    Drafting a QB is what gets me.
    I would love to have Quinn, he looks like he was chiseled into the prototype QB, he shows all the signs. BUT you put him, or any quarterback you bring in with no experience for that matter, in a position to have to play with a group of unproven receivers, with no clear leader in the receiver corp. what do you guys think?

    Brady Quinn definetly if he falls to us. Tarvaris Jackson hasn't proven us anything yet and competition between the two can only help.

    Re: T-Jack, Bollinger, or a rookie....

    I think Quinn has the greatest potential to eventually be a franchise QB.

    I say 'eventually' because no one expects a rookie QB to perform like a seasoned vet QB in his rookie year.
    This seems to set the Vikings back one year in QB development, but it is also year 2 of a 3 year rebuilding plan.
    The Vikings mangement and coaches realize that, and thus they aren't concerned with 'winning at all costs' in 2007.
    So, if Quinn were available at 7, the Vikings will very likely take him.


    Most of the Vikings WRs are new, so any Viking QB, whether it be a rookie, a 1 year vet, or a 4 year vet, will face the same 'familiarity issue' mentioned in the initial post.

    Bollinger has more potential than most people here realize.
    He played fairly well in limited time last year, and a neighbor of mine who is a Jets fan said he did well as a backup starting in place of Chad Pennington when CP was on IR.
    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    Re: T-Jack, Bollinger, or a rookie....

    I want TJ to start but I think, Bollinger gives us the best chance for a winning record next season. He was the best QB for us last year. The offense looked fluid (when the O-Line decided to block!) when he was in. He has the most experience with the system. He would have been our starter if not for the shoulder injury.

    I doubt we will draft Quinn with TJ already in the fold. I think it's just a smoke screen to trade down. I'm sure we will pick up a QB in a later round though.
    Halo 4. Start another fight.

    I fell that, in order to win in the future, we need to start Jackson right now, drafting a guy like Quinn or Russell or something like that will only set us back a year..

    Jackson has shown he has talent, but need some experience playing, and thats what we need to give him..

    If Quinn is there I don't think you can pass him up.

    I wouldn't be bawling if Tarvaris was our quarterback for next year, but I see Quinn developing into a Pro Bowler long before Tarvaris does.

    If Quinn is there, we trade down to 9th spot or maybe ever more down..

    Yes, we draft Brady Quinn. Hard to pass on a franchise QB
