    Today’s Vikings topic: Quarterbacks

    [size=13pt]Today’s topic: Quarterbacks[/size]

    April 20th, 2008 – 9:07 AM

    by Kevin Seifert



    The issue: When he was hired in January 2006, coach Brad Childress suggested he would like to draft a quarterback every year. (They don’t call it the game’s most important position for nothing.) Speaking last month at the NFL’s annual meetings, Childress reiterated his desire to find a developmental quarterback in the 2008 draft.....

    LANSING, Mich. -- Every year the NFL draft produces talent that will become the new face of the league. Whether it be for their break away speed, incredible catching ability or their all-around courage, NFL teams search for that one player who can take them to the promise land....

    I really don't see any mystery in the QB situation since Childress appeared as the HC.

    *Daunte walked.
    *Tarvaris drafted.
    *BJ didn't work out as planned.
    *Tarvaris forced into starting role.
    *The boys at Winter Park didn't like available veterans for an array of reasons.
    *Minimal mentoring from the likes of Bollinger
    *Frerotte signed as the 'wandering mentor'
    *Tarvaris pans out or Childress becomes scapegoat unless alternative plan works out
    *Backup plan: sign another young project QB in the draft with a lot of potential.

    Seems logical to me.

    Thanks for all the reads my friend.

    Anyone else listen to the video of those two chuckleheads?

    Anyway, the two QB's they mentioned....

    16. Paul Smith, Tulsa
    18. Kyle Wright, Miami Florida

    http://football.about.com/cs/positio...raftqbrank.htm

    .....are very interesting prospects.

    Smith, 6'2" 193 seems to be a good fit for our scheme but is a bit small for me.

    Wright, Got the frame but his numers aren't that good.

    http://hurricanesports.cstv.com/spor...ht_kyle00.html
    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/player...layerId=146486

    Again, these guys are interesting from what little I can find on them (some other game articles out there) but I don't think either will make the "Anti-TJ" crowd happy thats for sure as they are definately projects.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Thats that big thing that caused this mess, BJ was a big disappointment following his decent season
    as Dante's backup/replacement

    I think you'r right.
    We were all banking on BJ sticking around for about 2 more years untill TJ was ready to take over.
    That never really worked out well, so now TJ has to learn on the fly.
    I do like some of waht i've seen towards the end of the season, but he still gets nervous in the big games. (bears, redskins)
    Hopefully this year his confidence will go up, and he'll start to turn into the guy Chilly imagined when we moved up to draft him in the 2nd.

    I think you hit the nail on the head there, at least how I feel about him.
    He definitely seemed shaken at times in those games.
    We have to remember tho, this is a guy from a Division II school thrown at the sharks.
    If he can just feel more settled in the pocket, he should be fine.



    Maybe having Allen scare him in training camp would help....
    ;D

    Re: Today’s Vikings topic: Quarterbacks

    Why must we always go after a lower quality QB. I's the games most important position right? Doesn't that sound backwards to anyone? This is the biggest issue plauging our team, the bottom feeding we do at Qb poisition is killing this team. Yes there have been some great talents at the bottom of drafts but I see a direct corrolation with a teams elite status and high draft pick Qb that is leading said team. We must stop wasting our lower picks on this garbage and draft a full fledge QB high in the draft. This is not a knock on TJ and weather he is our starter. I'm tired of the crap we look at at the QB position. Teams look for development Qbs when they have a Peyton and Brady back there. Hell, the Packers went out and drafter a QB in the first round to take the place of Farve because they didn't know when he was going to retire. Not the Vikes, though....we are looking for a developmental QB in the draft to replace Thyler. [the preseason susperstar
    :]

    Get me a QB!!!!!!!

    My first choice would be Josh Johnson if we can get him in round 4 or 5, but if not I'm leaning towards Kevin O'Connell or Ryan O'Hara.

    Josh Johnson:
    [youtube=425,350]sITaJVOX0BQ[/youtube]
    To me this guys seems like a faster version of TJack with better running skills and passing efficiency 36:1 TD:INT!!).
    If TJack does not turn out to be as great as we all hope he will become, this guy might be the best option in a couple of years.


    Kevin O'Connell:
    [youtube=425,350]R7Hem8WbjvI[/youtube]
    Led his team in rushing and passing.
    He is a good athlete with nice size and an adequate arm.
    Did not exactly torch weaker competition, so I don't know how competitive he will be in the NFL, but his measureables make him worth a look in the late rounds.


    Ryan O'Hara:
    [youtube=425,350]49VObP0g0VU[/youtube]
    He is a bit rough around the edges, but he has ideal size and arm strength.
    His mobility is not spectacular, but he can avoid the rush.
    Ideal candidate for "project" QB.
