I read last night on Twincitys.com that it took seven practices until Jackson could hit the deep throw. It also was to Rice and not Williamson.

Here's some more (From the Star Tribune);

One observation from this practice: This was the first day that one quarterback was clearly better and that guy was Bollinger. Both Jackson and Bollinger had rough days on Tuesday but this morning Bollinger appeared to be much more in control.

I laughed for several minutes on that one. I thought I was the only one attempting to correct "you know whos" English.

Thanks for the help!

You right, everything I say has be archived.(lol)

I hope for your sake, and more importantly, for the sake of the Vikings, that TJ can at least be average. You still don't get it! I already have enough ammo to wipe you out now. I'm not going to fire it all in one day. I'm bored so, I'm taking my time with you. You would be wise to beg me for mercy now.

I don't Terry but, a certain poster here has him at league MVP. Serviceable would be good with me right now. Also, the way things are going in camp so far, I wonder if ANY QB would be good enough! Goodnight, God Bless, and SAY YOUR PRAYERS!

P.S. I don't even go to church.

OK i've found some time. This is going to cut into Magnum man's sessions, but you're crying for help. With the running game we have gonzo, you can play qb with a bad hip and gallbladder, and win 8 games for this team. Capiche?

1) Magnum man - Magnum Man or Sir to you!
2) i've - I've
3) we - Minnesota Vikings. Your nothing to them.
4) gonzo - Mr. Gonzo to you!
5) Bad gallbladder - you're no doctor.
6) 8 - eight
7) Stick with English - you don't even have it down yet!
8) man's - mans
9) Quit trying to explain football to those that know the game better than you! You look foolish!

He knows about the gall bladder from my past but, I don't have a BAD one because, I don't have ANY, they took it out! Again, poor sentence structure and just plain poor posting.

I'm going to give you a D grade on this post because, it seems you have been listening to me some. Your admiting that TJ pretty much just needs to not screw it up. However, too many int's and fumbles (see: Culpepper, Dante) can be costly. If you've been reading the training camp reports that I and, some others have been posting (not from "First Take" or "Live with Regis and Kelly") you'd see that Bolinger seems to be winning the Battle of BRAINS between the two. Even at this early stage, it seems to still be a battle with a short leash for whoever wins out. In closing, your point about not having to have a "star" QB this year to win games is well taken and, even a good obsevation. However, as Magnum said, your lack of respect by not refering to me as "Sir" or "My Liege" has dropped your D minus to a D. Keep studying. There is hope.

What's your problem with TJ? He has the talent and work ethic to be a star. Let me tell you i've seen bollinger play, we don't want him as our starting qb.

I'm not concerned with his talent or work ethic, I'm concerned with his intelligence or, like you at times, lack thereof. Now go here:
