Gus May be All We Have by Sunday…

The good news (especially for those who hate Tarvaris Jackson like Amy Winehouse hates bathing) is that Gus Frerotte will be our starting QB on Sunday…the bad news is that he may be the only healthy offensive player we have come kick-off.  Today’s injury report is riddled with names we’d prefer not to be missing when the Vikes take the field against Carolina:  Adrian Peterson (bad hammy), Bernard Berrian (rotting toes), Sidney Rice (bum knee), Artis Hicks (elbow still hurts), Aundrae Allison (bad foot).  So, what – three of our four receivers, our starting running back and our left tackle?  At least Visanthe Shiancoe is still okay!

    Bad news is we still have Childress. He was the one who put Travaris in in the first place and he is repsonsible for us being 0-2. Travaris just can’t cut it in this league; just like Joey Harrington. Only differance is the Lions owners we smarter than we are…..They first fired the coach then got rid of Joey. We are doing it ass backwards. We should have Fired Childress, then trade Travaris at the end of the season. Childress knew that Travaris was not the man for the job; otherwise why did we try to get Farve? Then when we could not get Farve, we sat on our hands and did nothing…… We could have tried to get another starting quarterback, but not us, we like being winless!!! Come on Vikings owners…….wise up.

    Another point: Our passing game stinks. So we have to run the ball as much as possible to make up for this. Now we have Adrian Peterson hurt, possibly because of this. Thanks, again to Brad Childress for this!

    Gus is not all we have…rumor has it Jeff George may be available in time for Sunday. Wouldn’t that be sweet? I also hear a certain former vikings QB is pumping gas at Bobby and Steve’s on Washington. He’s a young guy…think his boss will let him go to the dome on his break? I think he has small hands, though.

  • Need 2 Do

    Need to let Gus start for a couple of games and then look into JD Booty to see if he has anything promising for the future. Then at least you are working towards the future and deciding if you need to get 3 QB’s for next year.  NFL is a QB driven league.

    I could see Booty playing – if we’re about 2-10.

    i said it before, put bootyass in there now. if he’s your qb of the future, you got the perfect team to do it with NOW, why waste your time with fuckin gus?????? you guys can run on anybody, you got a big o-line, and a D built to stop the run. perfect for a young qb that has accuracy……i’ve been sayin this for 2months now and everyone here calls me an idiot. well i might be overall, but on this point, i’m dead on……so really am i an idiot?????? if you say yes, than you are just hatin on me and have no concept of real football
