I don't blame you for being sceptical about any QB Klink endorses. In fact, I'm like that too.(Remember that $h!tbird Mahone he actually brought to training camp, early on, after arriving here?)- Thing is, Bevell & Butthead are gaga about BF. He's likely to get ALOT longer of a leash than ANY Childress-era QB has ever had here before. BF can slice & dice a defense. Haven't had that here since... Healthy Tommy Kramer?(When he actually had an "O" line to protect him) But by all reports, BF's arm is better than it's been in a long time. And still has the velocity. If nothing else, with the nice "O" weapons, and a very good defense, football is going to be VERY exciting in "The North" this coming season. Wether you like Favre (I don't) or not. He can play. Look how he was in NY before his arm went titts up...

As long as BF isn't doing any jump passes during the games, he should be "fine".

The stunner is going to be if Favre decides NOT to play. Anyone buy that scenario?

Barring that revelation, it is going to be an interesting year, the Vikings will have a QB they can believe in for the first time since Childress got here.

Throw in another year older for Rice, Jaymar Johnson and Peterson, add in Harvin, Loadholt and Udeze, and it looks to be the best Vikings team of the Childress era.

The wild cards are the offensive line gelling after Birk and team chemistry with Favre.

If Tavaris Jackson does indeed seek a trade, then he would really be as dumb as people have been claiming since he got here. The fact that Favre is 40 and that Jackson's ability to learn from watching Favre is more valuable to Jackson than anything else he could muster. If he fails to grasp that then good riddance.

I can't wait until I read a story about the resolution of the Brett Favre saga. That being said, I can't wait until he's here!

Tommy was my favorite afer Fran,, slice in dice TK now way, DC put up way better #S I know I know he had Moss and CC, and da bomb served him will but AC anthony carter was a great deep threat made some amazing catches in the day maybe that was wade era,, I just wanted to comment on charity game that Birk and Chilli QB for Brad Childress threw 6 TD beating birks team??? what suit up chilli quit looking outside and be the player coach of the squad.....I agree with Jared Allen its time,, July 30 either Brett is going to play or he isnt,and if he does I wont comment but it will be the samething next year who will QB??? if they do win superbowl I see Farve saying goodbye,, if they dont I hope Wilf says goodbte to chilli.Vikes have young talent on offense I like BB, and S.Rice and of course AP,, but a QB long term with vikes backfield should compete for years,,defense is getting up there see the williams wall, and well Allen will be a stud for years to come like Tommy Krammer if he stays off the sauce or in TKs case prob. played better half jagged???? anyway its getting close and still hoping the twins sign someone before deadline rather then ive up someone...... MN fan 4 life except Twolves,original MN LAKERS still make me proud even though they are in LA, just like some clowns think Wilf is taking team?????

miketice - BF would probably just be a one season patch job, anyway.(Although a far better one than Childress has brought here yet) If somebody could actually MAKE Jackson learn, it might be worth keeping him. But, he spent more time brooding when Gus was "in". You'd see him on the sidelines, cap on backwards, with a stupid grin on his face watching everything BUT the game. Sure, physically he seems to have what it takes, but he just seems dense at reading defenses that even spectators can read just by watching the game. I'd feel more comfortable if they'd let Jackson go,(like he wants) see if Rosenfels can carry it next season, and definately keep Booty. Next Draft is going to be loaded with QBs. Take the plunge & draft a high-pick one. Unless he satisfied being a #2, C. Taylor is a very good & versatile RB. He could fetch a decent pick or two. I like Taylor. Don't get me wrong. He's one of the few early decisions that Childress made that I liked. They need a good "for years" QB. MAYBE Booty will be that good. IDK.

Now, the other things you mentioned, "miketice": I disagree about Culpepper. While he was a Viking, he could scramble. He had a cannon arm. BUT, I think that a good 70% of his mojo was Randy Moss & CC. Those two had the qualities to make an average QB look like a Montana or Marino clone. When Culpepper was a Viking, I don't think that he was AT ALL very good with an opposing Defense. He "telegraphed" his throws too much. It's just that CC & Moss were that good. I think Kramer was far ahead of Pep at reading a Defense. Not trying to blow smoke up your as-s, pal... I just disagree with your assessment. Actually, I liked your post.

Arch, you are right on. DC did not slice and dice. He threw the long ball, was hard to bring down giving him a tad of extra time to throw, and he scrambled. Without CC & Moss? Ordinary. My concern about TJ is has yet to show he has the QB intelligence between the ears that is necesary to excell in the NFL. Booty does so we'll see how he progresses. JD also accurate, but not so long. Gonna be a fun year!

Nobody told Klink that the tape of Brett throwing the ball was from 1996.

i love how people think t-jack is the answer. he is probably the worst starting qb in the entire nfl. farve makes us instant contenders, maybe to go all the way. cut t-jack for all i care, he wasn't the answer anyway and probably never will be. i say coax farve into signing a 2 year deal, and draft a qb in the next draft he can mentor for a year.

Lol - Well it sure as hell isn't ME that thinks "TJax is the answer"! Since BF is almost definately coming, I hope they send his as-s packin'. Can have Rosenfels compete with Booty for the #2. Draft a QB HIGHER in the next draft. From what I've been hearing, J.D.'s been looking like a QB lately.

Long as ESPN or Yahoosports isn't the source. If they are, it's more than likely caca.

Great points Archangel...TJack laughing like he just won something, keep Booty instead of him, let see what Sage has, trade Chester for a pick now that we have Ian Johnson from MS and for the life of me, FIRE CHILDRESS and PROMOTE LESLIE before it is too late and he goes to win a SB with another team like Dungy, Billick, Tomlin...

Thought i would never says this "Go Vikings" im a Favre fan, and if i have to choose between Favre(whom i met the first night he landed in Green Bay) and TT/MM/MM? this choice becomes easy this season! Go Vikings! I wish a great season for the Packers and Vikings, but in the end i'll be rooting for whatever gets rid of our GM,COACH,and PRESIDENT of Packers. What a great season to look forward to and what great ratings for the NFL!

Bingo!- EXACTLY where I'm coming from. Right down to Ian Johnson being Taylor's replacement. Man, makes you feel good knowing other people see the "game" like you do yourself. I was thinking that Wilf can "save face" by bumping Childress up to "GM". Ol' Klink has "something" going for him, or the team wouldn't be this stacked with quality players. So: Bump-up Klink to GM. Promote Frazier to HC. Dump Bevell. Let Les go out and get a quality "O" Co-Ord., and name his "D" man.
