Dear Gus: No One Cares

Gus Frerotte told Sid Hartman that he thinks he deserves a chance to return to the Vikings and be the starter next season.  “I was only in the offense for six months, so I should get a lot better with another year under my belt,” the aging QB said. “I think I’ve earned the right to be a starter. It wasn’t handed to me. I went in and played well and gave everything I had to the team.”  And Brad Childress still preferred Tarvaris Jackson, who ain’t exactly Fran Tarkenton.  Sorry Gus, but when Chilly didn’t go to you in the second half against Philly…well, the writing was on the wall, wasn’t it?  If he’d had any faith in you, T-Jack would’ve been yanked.  Maybe he still should’ve pulled Jackson and let you try to get something going, but it’s all water under the bridge now.  The Vikings are evidently over you (Frerotte told Hartman he hasn’t spoken to the team in weeks), and most of the fans are too.  Now you need to get over it…and move on to your next job.
