    Gus Frerotte to start rest of season for Vikings

    Just saw on ESPN News that Brad Childress is announcing Gus as the starter for the rest of the season.

    Re: Gus Frerotte to start rest of season for Vikings

    How can he say he'll be the starter for the rest of the season? What if he comes out and bombs? A pretty blanket statement if you ask me.

    Re: Gus Frerotte to start rest of season for Vikings

    Well, as a Vikings fan I say it is only a good thing if they actually get more than one receiver on the field. It seems we have two or three TE on the field and one receiver to go out on a pattern and then are surprised that guy is double or triple teamed. I would like Brad to be fired, but I don't see that happening yet. That offense makes me want to scream!

    I'm not sure what to think of this - is this suppose to be a step up or, end result, simply a lateral move?


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Re: Gus Frerotte to start rest of season for Vikings

    Yeah, that's a dumb statement to make, that he'll start the rest of the year. The Patriots kind of did the same thing with Cassel...how in the world can you say he will be your starter the rest of the year? What if he comes out and sucks? Frerotte has never really been consistent...

    Re: Gus Frerotte to start rest of season for Vikings

    Well I think its common sense that if his arm falls off he won't be starting the rest of the season.

    If the Vikings don't make the playoffs Childress needs to go, and I think he knows that so that's why he's making the switch, because he's always held strong with Jackson and this seems like he's giving up on him.

    Re: Gus Frerotte to start rest of season for Vikings

    How I wish Sage would have gotten traded to the Vikings. Isn't Jeff Garcia available? He has got to be better.

    As far as Childress and the Offensive play calls they need to go. Vikings are going to be 0-3 after this weekend.

    Re: Gus Frerotte to start rest of season for Vikings

    Gus will lead the Vikings to a win this weekend. He is a seasoned vet and can get the things done that the Vikings will ask of him.

    He won't turn the ball over, he will manage the game and take some pressure off of the run game.

    I hope the cut Jackson tomorrow. He has been awful.

    Re: Gus Frerotte to start rest of season for Vikings

    I agree, Minnesota should have traded to get Sage. I think the Vikes D is good enough to compensate for a QB that is there to just manage the game and not F-up. That is exactly what Sage would have brought and more.

    I can see Minnesota rallying and winning on Sunday. If they don't, then the season is a total loss and coach and T-Jack are gone for good.

    May God save the Vikings.

    Re: Gus Frerotte to start rest of season for Vikings

    Brad Childress knows his job is on the line and he made TJack the scapegoat. What most people don't know is that Gus was a backup with us 2 or 3 years ago, came in and performed well so he knows the offense. Smart move i believe. I put the vikes at zero chance of trading for anybody...garcia, sage etc...

    Re: Gus Frerotte to start rest of season for Vikings

    Don't they have John David Booty? Give him a shot. He cannot be worse than Jackson or Ferotte.

    Looks like 2008 Vikings will be playing for a top draft pick.
