  • The Vikings new QB

    Obviously there is need for change at the position.
    I myself do not think that the answer lies in the top 5-7 of the draft, where we will probably be drafting. I would rather see that pick go on value to get either Jake Long, Glenn Dorsey, Kenny Philips ect.

    I think the answer is a veteran, and there are a number of options that i have floating around.

    Free Agency

    Rex Grossman - No thank you
    Tony Romo - Will be locked up
    Chris Simms - Possible back up - good upside

    Possible Cuts

    McNabb - Doubt he will get cut, but i would jump all over the oppurtunity
    Pennignton - Would be a good veteran to play while the future qb develops.

    Restricted Free Agency

    Derek Anderson - Will have high compensation
    Charlie Frye - I still dont mind him, he is mobile and could fit our scheme - i wouldn't give up ,much though.

    Pre Trade Deadline Trade

    Pennignton - if we could get him for a third i would jump all over it, if we had a solid QB we would be 3-1 at least.

    J.P Losman - I would love this but doubt the chances, He is still young so he could be the long term guy in Minni, nice and mobile, strong arm but maybe a victem of and untimley injury and a step up of Edwards.


    So lets hear it. Who do yyou want under centre, next year or this year?
    --Four Norse Men of the Apocalypse--
    ......Allen Wlliams Williams Edwards......
    .......--Future Riders in waiting--........
    ......Robinson Evans Guion Mitchell......

    Dont Say ud love to see Losman. He isnt that great of a QB. He has a good WR and cant even hit him. I dont know maybe because im surrounded by buffalo news but idk. I would love to see pennington tho.

      I don't think its obvious yet that we have need there we need to let Tarvaris have a shot too many people assume he is nothing the guy has only started 4 games lets atleast let him start around 10 before we start assuming things. And i reall don't like any of those options outside of McNabb.

      However if Tarvaris doesn't show any progression throughout the season, Matt Ryan is the QB I would like to draft next year. He has everything you look for in a franchise QB good size, decent decision making, Good touch on the ball, he's accurate, he can throw well on the move, and best of all he has a very quick release.

          tjack played well, he made some nice throws and made a lot of good decisions and controlled the game. He probably will never be a Manning or Brady, but if he can be someone to control the game and move the offense, with our running game and our defense (well at least our rush D) we could be competitive

            tavaris jackson once again is another case of a QB being rushed into action..i thought he was supposed to be a developmental QB that wouldnt see the field til year 2 or 3 atleast.

              IMO T-jack earned a pass with his play this week now to see what he does with the cowboys defense it should be a good test. Not that they have an amazing secondary but they have a very good #1 corner in Newman and they are very good at bringing the pressure. Im not expecting him to do much but if he doesn't turn it over i will be estatic.

                Thats how it was supposed to be...but we didnt realize just how bad Brad Johnson really is.

                This is one of the reasons I think people are really jumping to conclusions when it comes to Jackson. People are forgetting that when we drafted him we had no intention of him even playing at his point in his career. He was definetly a project coming out and to think that hes reached his ceiling is pretty premature IMO. We just need to ride it out this year with him. Its not going to be pretty this year, but I dont think anyone can deny that he has the skillset to be a very good QB, he just needs to learn the mental part of the game, and that takes much much longer than 7 starts, especially for a 1AA quarterback.

                He did show me a lot of promise in last weeks game, if only our receivers could catch the ball he would have been around 14-22 with close to 200 yards and no INTS, which as Vikes fans have been saying all along is the most important thing by far, especially this early in his development.

                  oh god no you wouldn't... maybe he needs a new team but he's been garbage this year

                    Pennington isnt a deep passer and thats what we need. We just need a QB who can throw dink dunk passes and then let the WR do. Pennington Could be able to do that.

                      I agree. Pennington is still very accurate inside of 20-25 yards.

                        Andre Woodson, this team isn't going anywhere until we can find another top QB through the draft.

                          I would be disapointed if we drafted Andre Woodson to be honest. His spotty Mechanics and Slow Release worry me.

                            It wont matter if the receivers can't catch the ball. Really we are better off just throwing hail marys and hoping someone catches them than having us knocking balls up in the air in front of the safeties.

                            I was one of the people big on the Brady Quinn wagon last year but TJ has impressed me. He played stupid against Detroit, but has been pretty solid other than that. Was very good against the Bears. I do wish he would back his legs more though, I have more faith in his wheels than in our wide outs hands...


                            Props to BK on the sig!
