    Just by staring at the mug I'm starting to miss Meathead a little.
    Not for his coaching skills, but just the type of guy he was.
    I'm sure the Chiller will work out fine, but you had to like Meathead's personality.
    Problem solved!

    Put a monocle on him and he would look just like Col Klink.
    And he reminds me more of him every day.

    Hey...who knows?
    Belichick hitched HIS star to a SIXTH-ROUNDER...and look at what happened.
    OF COURSE, everyone KNOWS that the Patsy DEFENSE really won those games. (And what do you know...we have a pretty good defense too...hmmmm...maybe there's hope after all?)
    ;D

    I would rather get TJack some weapons to throw to and give him a shot at stepping up into the starter's role.
    Worst case scenario...we suck next season and draft Brian Brohm next season...who is a MUCH BETTER QB than Quinn will ever be!
    All you Quinn bastards can bite me...here's to the team that drafts him...Go Quinn!!

    Oooooh!
    Now you've done it!
    You're gonna get a lot of hateful PMs from TJackson lovers.

    I'm perplexed about Brian Brohm.
    "MUCH BETTER QB than Quinn will ever be"?
    ??? : Wait until TJackson busts to draft Brohm, but 'we need someone to make an immediate impact, so draft Landry, not Quinn, etc.'
    ???

    The above 'comments' sequence seems to indicate some fans want to give TJ a chance to succeed, or bust.
    If he busts, the next step is to draft a replacement next year.
    The replacement QB, Brohm,... if the Vikings were 'lucky enough' to be in a position to draft him,... wouldn't develop until 2009.
    But, at the same time, many of the same fans are pushing to draft Landry, who 'should make an immediate impact'.
    I don't understand the need for an 'immediate impact' player in the 2007 draft when it isn't a certainty that Jackson will develop in 2007.

    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    well i think the thought process is, if we we're a rebuilding team as you say, and we invested what we already have in tjack and then draft quinn, what was the point of using 3 picks to take tjack.
    that's an awful lot for a backup qb.
    i mean if it's a matter of value and you have to draft him fine, cuz then maybe you can get something in return somewhere down the line.
    but if not, and you draft quinn, doesn't the job basically have to be his?
    when you have other problems and you use a top 10 pick on qb, doesn't that mean that tjack is bascially done before he even plays?
    we can all talk about a competition but the bottom line is tjack would have to be phenominal otherwise we have to go with the guy we invested the number 7 pick on. i just dont see the point, i think it'd be a setback more than a step forward.

    NOTHING is a certainty...but it's a pretty good bet that if TJack gets some help on offense via the draft, that he will have a BETTER chance of succeeding, not only next season, but also down the road.

    Another ALMOST CERTAINTY is that Purplexing thinks that he (or she) thinks that he (or she) knows better than everyone else on the PP.O board what is best for the Vikings!
