    Vikings New QB???

    Anyone have any idea what the Vikings may do in the offseason with regards to there QB situation.

    Tavaris Jackson is not working out while he has made some improvement I dont see him as a starter and I see it as a Risk for brad childress's career to at least not get another QB in his system.

    Any Idea whos a good free agent out there ive heard McNabb (not my first choice) and JP Losman (Kind of fits Childresse's offense being agile) maybe seneca (oh the seneca days)

    The crew doing the game yesterday was having an uncomfortable amount of man love for Tavaris...

    Re: Vikings New QB???

    While I would love to see the Vikes cut their loses, I would say that Childress will go with Jackson again next year (as does the MSP press). I think they will draft a QB with their second or third pick.
    I would just love to see Seneca in purple, but I think Vike fans are in for another long season next year.
    Has No. 82 been cut yet?

    While I'm not a Vikes fan, it was far from a "long" season for them. ROY honors, record setting rushing marks, and an unexpected shot at the playoffs right down to the last week of the season.

    It was actually a pretty exciting year for the Vikes considering where most people, including myself, thought they'd be.

    They should have cut him mid-game yesterday. That was an awful performance.

    Is that Troy Williamson? If it is, I agree ... but cut from the NFL entirely.

    I'm fine with keeping TJack the starter for next year, I liked his improvement towards the end of the year. But they must bring in some *good* receivers. And please cut T Will, he is awful!!

    It was a pretty decent season, I think better than most expected. But the shortcomings of Jackson were definately exposed in the last few weeks when every defense stacked the box to stop AP.
    I don't think there will be a change in the off season though. Childress has defended Jackson on numerous occasions.
    I think the Vikes would be better off with someone else. Perhaps they can pick up Brad Johnson again, or talk Vinnie Testaverde out of retirement.

    Take away All Day(agree with you there), and it would have been a VERY long season for the Vikes. The five win steak included one quality win against the Giants. I am a huge Vike fan and the majority of season was almost painful to watch.

    Tavaris does not appear to be that great.

    Some walkon competition next year? Bret Meyer? Tator?

    Re: Vikings New QB???

    We talked about speed being important with our recruits, but it's not all cracked up to what some think it is. The only reason Troy ever got drafted No. 1 was because of his great combine. What did he have, like a 4.28?
    If he does get cut, I agree he might not even stay in the NFL.

    Re: Vikings New QB???

    Yeah thats Troy Williamson 82 Talk about stone hands hes dropped tons this year and many last year i like the some recievers we got minus #82, Sidney Rice looked promising, Wade was ok, Furgeson ok (ex- FudgePacker) Allision another recruit showed signs of something at times we do need a few more recievers i can think of one in particular about 6'5 decent NFL speed Excellent Possesion Reciever.... Todd Blythe (wishful thinking haha)

    Instead of drafting another QB id rather get an established QB but as of right now i dont see any coming up for free agency

    Re: Vikings New QB???

    Jackson did show some improvement toward the end of the year. The guy has still only started about 15 games in his career. I'm not ready to give up on him quite yet, but he definitely needs to come out and look good early next year. If he would just stop making such dumb decisions that kill drives.

    One more good receiver would definitely help him. I liked how Rice looked this year. I think he has the potential to be a good player for the Vikes. Williamson is officially the bust of all busts. He has amazing speed, but when the good Lord made stone, he also molded Troy's hands.

    Re: Vikings New QB???

    Childress says that T. Jackson is further ahead than D. McNabb at this point in their careers but I don't see it.
    Jackson stares down his primary receiver on every play. He has an odd long ball, seems to have far too much arc to it.
    In the games when Peterson was picking up large chunks of offense he looked all right, when they stacked the box he started making the same stupid mistakes he has made all year.

    I understand that this was his first year as a starter, and Troy Williamson's hands of stone didn't help. I'm not yet ready to throw in the towel on Jackson, but I need to see a vast improvement next year.
