Baloney - Front page of ESPN.COM has the headline of

"Punchless Vikings bench Jackson, turn to Frerotte as starter"

By John Clayton "

"is it the first day with your new brain or what?"
Now that was need to pile on now I suppose.
I do wish Tyler the best. The Chiefs want to know how deep the team is. They know they are "rebuilding", so it nice to see Tyler get a shot. One of his favorite targets is up in Cincy and hasn't gotten his yet (Simpson), but it will come.

Great story, great kid ... and a great Coach. Too bad that on the occasion of this happy news the Sun-News' dumb writer Sean Horgan decided to trash Coach Bennett and CCU.

Well, college kids have been drinking beer a long time, Horgan ... ask Joe Namath or Alex Hawkins; it seems that they turned out OK.(They [like Tyler] certainly made something of themselves AFTER they graduated ... which Horgan's failed at miserably).

Good luck Tyler. You earned the opportunity.
