Whoa, learn ENGLISH buddy.
Now to beat down you semi-thought out points
-T-jack hater, Yes he is horrible
-draft or free agency NO they would be better, their is no denying Vick or Locker
at the very least after the first season they would be legitimate contenders
-jack is the only one who nows that position, NO you have Webb and Rosenfels, take Rosenfels back to be a backup or decided what you want to do with Webb, maybe something like Randle El
-didnt have anybody to throw to his first year, really? AP remember he caught a 60yard TD pass against the Falcons in 2007( I assume you meant 2007 not a couple games in 2006), Wade he was an decent reciever and remember this defenses were 100% toned in on stopping AP, they left recievers wide open and T-Jack still missed them
--9 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, along with a 159 yards per game, causing the Vikings to have the second-WORST passing offense in the NFL. His 70.8 passer rating was 28th among NFL quarterbacks. Jackson missed three games because of injuries, which included a strained groin, a concussion and a fractured index finger. The Vikings failed to make the playoffs. Analysts put the Vikings' 8-8 record on the successful running of Chester Taylor and rookie Adrian Peterson, which has proven to take the pressure off of Jackson and the defense.
-2008 he did well, Did you watch him play that year?, Several analysts believed better quarterback play was all that was needed to make the Vikings one of the top contending teams in the NFL, Zimmerman (sports Illustrated) even picked the vikings to make the Super Bowl that year, well game one throws a game losing pick, second game not a single TD horrible play by T-Jack, benched till week 14 against the Lions, T-Jack managed to barely manage the game and pull out a win (against the 0-16 lions mind you), next week greatest game of his career against the cardinals, then he lost the game against the eagles in the playoffs yeah loser T-Jack
-mad at brett, I assume you mean how I never wanted him here and called Chilly as a traitor, so what it happened still was glad T-Loser wasn't starting
.
grow up
You are an idiot, Jackson didn't start against the Lions he came in once Gus got hurt, which Gus was the one losing to the lions and he threw two picks, Jackson came in and beat the Lions. He threw a game ending pick true but you could blame the defense for not stopping the packers from driving the entire field right before the pick. He didn't lose to the colts, Shiancoe dropped an easy td. we win if shiancoe knew how to catch. Shiancoe at the time was a dropper. He went 8 tds -1 int over the next games, oh yeah thats terrible. He lost to the Eagles because the vikes were out coached. The d backs were jumping routes all day and there was never a double move. Berrian and Wade both said after the game that it was a terribl game plan and didn't understand why they didn't pull double moves. Oh, Jackson had AD to throw to that season. Last I checked he isnt a very good receiver and wasn't used as such til last year. He had the likes of Robert Furguson, Travis Taylor, Bobby Wade, Rice and Troy Williamson. Yeah thats a great receiving core, Rice was only a rookie and Wade was the only one with decent hands asides for Riceand he was a slot guy, thats it. He had Berrian the next year and Rice was hurt all year long. Berrian isn't a #1. Maybe watch the games you refer to.

now there is a real QB
Yeah, great. If he can do that every play.

The WCO means every back and WR catches and runs, and the QB needs to see all of them, every play. Happy feet is fine once or twice a game, but it only goes so far.

The Giants plane was diverted to KC. With MSP closed - it will be interesting to see if the game is played tomorrow - might have to push it back to Sunday night or Monday night ....

12 men on the field. 12 frickin guys on the field. 12 ... oh, never mind. If I were Favre, I'd want to play, too. Have you ever sat on the sidelines for three hours? If not, it's boooooooring, especially when your QB is getting picked off three times in a game. Oh, and throwing that nifty little jump pass.

u have just convinced me that ur real stupid how in the hell ap is a go to reciever when he is the running back that was gettin the ball on 1st and 2nd down an fumbling the ball to. now that forces 3rd and long now the defense know u have to pass an with the recievers they had running terrible routes what esle would happen duh. if i were the coach i would let him throw short easy routes on early down to get him going and do more roll out plays an design qb draws things to his strengths thats what a coach will do until he gets it. then on webb everyone was high jack the same way when they saw him play. if webb doesnt do nothing at qb he will get treated just like jack. but he has to get healthy first to c that an if they use webb like randal el he would b a reciever so who would b the qb o i forgot u said rosenfel i think if they believed in sage he waould have stayed instead of jack. then for u to think u will get vick or locker u r very stupid becuz the eagles r gonna keep vick and if u get locker who has he beat in college nobody he has lost most of all the big games in his career. u need to watch football instead of looking at stats and highlights

-Jackson has thrown 573 passes in his dark and ugly career
as for completed 339 of them.
That's less than 60 percent.
In other words, two out of every five Vikings receivers cry when the ball is thrown in their general direction but is off target by a foot or ten.
-24:21 TD to INT ratio
-history of curious, in-game decisions that you donít normally see in most quarterbacks that relegates him to a risky player every time he takes a snap
-inacurate and unreliable, oh and inconsistent as well
-unaggresive
-no leadership qualities
-fails under pressure, can't locate the open man, underutilizes his check routes
-tendency to throw off the wrong foot, leads to tipped balls/picks
-stylish jump passes, note stylish not effective
-not PLAYOFF MATERIAL,
'08 vs Eagles playoffs
42.9% completion rate, 164 yards and a INT
-his athleticism isn't valuable if he can't work it the right way
-his strong arm in invaluable if he is inaccurate
-his eyes can only read rudimentary defenses pretty well, like say buffalo
-canít effectively pick up on advance defensive techniques and sets.
-half a decade he still hasn't shown any improvement
That is why Tavaris Jackson is NOT the answer!
But Favre shown at practice on Sat. throwing the ball left handed to someone 5 yds. away because his shoulder is too sore to throw with his right arm AND because he said he wasn't able to play if the game was on Sun. THAT'S WHY!!!!

Bottom line, if I was playing a weak defense I would have added to my dopey record. I know the giants would have killed me.
