Word is that the Vikes are trying to sign Gus Frerotte as a backup QB. There's several articles out there stating this.
Why? Surely there is a better plan B than this. I've been impressed with most of their offseason moves, but this one leaves me stumped.
The only positive theory one could have is that they are using this to force the hand of Texas to agree to the Sage trade proposal. Many rumors are out there that the Texans are still considering this trade. Here's one (see the post from March 19th):
It's not that I think T-Jack cannot be the guy. I think he's got a world of talent. It's way too early to give up on a guy like that. He has a winning record as a starter, and the receiving corps was a joke last year. I think he should be the starter, but they need a backup in place that can be trusted to take the helm if necessary. I think Sage would fit that role nicely. Losman? Not quite so nice. Gus Frerotte? I sure hope not.
"What a horrible night to have a curse."
"Please bury me with all my stuff, because you know it's mine..."
"Passersby were amazed by the unusually large amounts of blood."
I personally would like things to stay the way they are. I think Gus would be a formidable QB pickup for Minnesota. Good experience and he could teach Jackson a thing or 10. I think this is a good scenario.
I believed in Gene Chizik and all I got was this lousy limited-edition commemorative coin.
We had to sign a backup anyway while Tjack is probably going to be our starter @ least he can get another veteran who is a smart Qb not very productive though but none the less can still help Tjack maybe improve a little faster.
