Silly Chilly

Brad Childress is once again playing games with the media over who will start at quarterback for the Vikings.  Chilly is apparently absolutely convinced that refusing to name a starter plunges the other team into complete panic – either that or he just likes jerking everyone around.  When the team wasn’t doing well, this routine was supremely annoying.  Now that they’re winning?  It seems almost cute.

Of course, everyone knows who the starter will be the Sunday – Tarvaris Jackson.  You don’t bench a guy right after he won Offensive Player of the Week, unless you want the whole world including members of your family coming down on you with the wrath of a thousand Twilight fans up-in-arms over the director getting fired for the sequel.  Gus Frerotte is a nice insurance policy for us now, provided he is not paralyzed.  But TD-Jack is the man.

    I like the sound of that: TD-Jack

    I hope that catches on. Even more so, I hope his performance catches on like last week.

    And again the following week.

    And again in the playoffs…

    Does this mean that vikings fans are stuck with T-Jac? I think this guys is  a horrible quarter back and has just gotten lucky and they Vikings need to draft another QB this off season.

    I’m liking the way Jackson is playing, but yeah, I wouldn’t mind seeing the Vikes cover themselves by drafting another QB.  Of course they’ll probably need to also sign a new veteran backup unless they want to go with Frerotte again.

    I am really worried that they are going to feel comfortable with T-Jac and think ok, lets just stick with him and he hasn’t proven he can QB in the NFL. The Lions suck and I am not convinced the Cards are that good either.
