    The Official Put Tarvaris Jackson Back In Thread

    Being an avid vikings fan, their whole quarterback situation makes me sick. First off, in the preseason many experts said that jackson had been working hard and had improved a lot. The kid showed some potential last year but clearly needed some improvement. After his injury in the preseason he wasn't quite back to 100 percent and looked like he was a little lost after missing some time. After two starts good ole childress gives him the axe and turns it over to gus frerrotte. Now, frerrote at times has shown signs of decentcy, but his inconsistency is even worse than jackson's and he has cost us a game (vs. bears) and almost cost us another one (yest. vs. packers). i feel and think some others do, that jackson wasn't given a clear shot early in the year and serves the team better than old man gus.

    sorry, this has been bugging me for a few weeks and wanted to get other fan's opinions on it.

    Re: The Official Put Tarvaris Jackson Back In Thread

    Worst thread ever, Gus is 5-2. They are finding a way to win. Jackson is terrible. He needs to be cut. I'm pretty sure that is Omar Epps on the sideline anyway.

    The back up is always better, even when he was once a starter and everyone called for his head.

    As a Vikings fan I want to let you know you are wrong, Gus is working, it might be Grossman like of 2006 when he did just enough to not lose, but we do have AD to rely on

    I must admit that Frerotte does not exactly thrill me, especially yesterday when he single-handedly kept the Packers in the game. However, how can you argue with what he has done, they are 5-2 with him as the starter. Good enough for me to keep him in there.

    Yes, I agree that Christensen is clearly a better qb. Oh, wait. Wrong team's argument. Just sounds exactly the same...

    Weird, I've never met an avid fan that wants his team to lose.

    Re: The Official Put Tarvaris Jackson Back In Thread

    You probably came pretty close to getting your wish yesterday as Gus wasnt impressing anyone. He's still on average their best chance to win. Unfortunately, that means we either get to try again with Tjax next year or never know why he was the number one guy anyway. Oh well, go vikes!


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Re: The Official Put Tarvaris Jackson Back In Thread

    Gus needs to start he is really bad and has lost a few games for us but we would of been alot worse. I think before we go out and spend more money on a QB next year we should throw in Booty but that will only happen if the playoffs are a long shot

    Re: The Official Put Tarvaris Jackson Back In Thread

    I'm not on the anti-Childress bandwagon quite yet, but I'm sick of this bs qb play. If we had Sage or Seneca (let alone a top 15 qb), this team would have a couple more wins. Ferrotte has shown the ability to win games, but he throws way too many dumb picks. He singlehandedly lost the game at Soldier, and he tried to lose the game yesterday (thankfully Mason Crosby handled that). The Vikes would be one of the best teams in the NFC (if not the best) with an average quarterback. However, we're stuck with 2 that are far below average.

    That is most certainly NOT a good idea. That decision would quickly be followed by a "official put Gus Frerotte back in thread".
