    Mark my words. Were gonna regret not getting cutler for decades to come, hes Jim Kelly with a stonger arm. Mike Shanahan who is considered one of the better talent evaluating coaches in the league certainly saw something in him that he couldnt pass up even with a solid starter QB already signed through 2008. lets just say Tarvaris Jackson couldnt hold a candle to Akili Smith so dont expect him to start anytime soon if not ever.
    Are you talking about the same Mike Shanahan that burned a 3rd round pick on Maurice Clarett?

    Or the same Mike Shanahan that needed to bend the salary cap rules to win back-to-back Superbowls even with John Elway at quarterback and Terrell Davis at running back?

    How about the Mike Shanahan who hasn't had a decent draft-class in Denver since the 2002 draft class was redeemed by getting Clinton Portis and Jeb Putzier?

    Yes, he traded for the entire Cleveland D-Line and it worked out for him, LAST YEAR. Just wait til Gerrard Warren spends his signing bonus on burgers and shakes, and see how motivated he is to collapse the pocket. He traded away Deltha O'Neal and he snagged 10 INT's and a Pro-Bowl berth with the Bengals.

    To sum up: I disagree with the opinion (not necessarily yours I understand) that Mike Shanahan is a well-regarded talent scout. Denver's success has been a result of an awesome running game and opportunistic defence, not Shanahan's talent-spotting.

    [size=18px]ALL EYES ON JACKSON[/size]

    May 18, 2006

    Author: Mike Wobschall

    In his first action since being drafted in the second round of April's draft many were anxious to see how rookie quarterback Tarvaris Jackson would perform. His tremendous arm strength and athleticism have been well-chronicled, but there are other aspects to a young quarterback's game that are just as important.

    "That is stuff that excited us before," offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said of his physical tools, "but what I am excited about now is his mental makeup, how he is picking it up, how he is handling himself in front of the team. When he steps in the huddle, he is taking command of it. He's enunciating the plays, he's starting to slow down, take a breath where you're supposed to take a breath in the plays. The plays turn into paragraphs. He's doing a really nice job with that stuff."

    Head Coach Brad Childress saw some of the same things from Jackson following the first session of minicamp.

    "Tarvaris, I saw made a couple of nice throws," Childress said. "I thought it had a little something on it, and he did a good job with all of our verbiage. I thought stepping up in the huddle and taking command of the huddle, he did a nice job there too."

    Because Jackson is finished with school he is allowed to stick around Winter Park once his first minicamp concludes. Bevell indicated the coaching staff is excited to continue their work with the young quarterback throughout this summer.

    "We'll be working with him every day," Bevell said. "The fortunate thing with this mini-camp is that as soon as it's over, the rookies are eligible to stay here if their school is done. He'll be here with us and we can start working with him right away. That's when we'll be able to slow it down and break everything down for him by concept and how everything fits together, and he'll be able to pick it up that way."

    It's common to hear talk of developing quarterbacks as if the process is fundamental and is done properly each time. However, the process takes time, patience and requires a delicate balance of force-feeding information and tolerance of mistakes. Bevell and Childress, who both have experience developing quarterbacks, seem to understand this concept very well. Bevell spent some of his coaching career with Brett Favre in Green Bay, while Childress was instrumental in the development of Philadelphia Eagles Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb.

    "It's two-fold," Bevell said regarding the mentality he is taking with Jackson. "The first thing you're trying to do is prepare him for a minicamp so you're trying to force feed as much information as you can to them while you are teaching them the basics. As soon as it's [minicamp] over we'll be able to slow it down and piecemeal it together."

    Veteran quarterback Brad Johnson, who will serve as Jackson's on-the-field mentor this season, can remember what it was like being a rookie.

    "There's a lot to learn. They throw it at you fast," Johnson said. "He wants to learn. He listens, and that's probably the greatest attribute that he has right now, especially as a rookie."

    Jackson made mention of the nerves he felt coming onto the field for his first practice during the Vikings three-day minicamp.

    "I felt a little nervous," Jackson commented. "But I was excited to get out here and be out here with some of these guys that I've seen on TV a lot. It's just good to be out here."

    The overload of information and learning the plays and learning who to read, and step drops and routes and all that stuff. It's a lot to remember."

    You'd think that with all the hype surrounding the young quarterback and all the pressure on him to develop quickly he would feel the pressure. The intensity would get to him and his eyes would resemble those of a dear in headlights. But anyone who observed Jackson at his first minicamp noticed more than his high-powered arm and smooth athleticism. You also noticed he's calm and collected - and ready to learn. All of our eyes may be on him, but you'd never be able to tell by looking at his.

    Hes real!!!!! Take it from some who has seen the 3 years he played here at Alabama State. TJ is a man. He works hard and it shows when he plays. This video is old for me and everybody down here. He led his high school team to state champs and college team to confrence champ. SO if your coaches really work with him, I have NO doubt that overall, he'll be a Viking Great!!!

    Just that alone helps me to relax a bit. A kid who wants to learn, has the ability, and has these guys as coaches, PLUS B.j as an onfield mentor.. u can't really ask for a better nest to spring forward from.
