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.
