This morning’s Star-Trib reports that the Vikings have called teams and asked what they would be willing to give up in exchange for Tarvaris Jackson. I don’t know, a 7th? Maybe a 6th? For a guy with 2+ years of starting experience, a shaky health history and loads of question marks?
I really don’t care what the Vikings get in any trade for T-Jack – I just want him gone. Bye bye. Seeya.
Sorry, but the T-Jack act has long-since grown tired. The bit where he wows everyone in practice/preseason, then looks like a clueless fool when it counts.
Okay, maybe T-Jack would make a decent back-up, going on the premise that he’s better when he doesn’ t know he’s going to start (sort of like some pitchers whose mentalities make them better relievers than starters). But then it just boils down to a choice between Jackson and Sage Rosenfels, and frankly, I take Sage.
I have more faith in Sage’s ability to provide a steady, reliable back-up. I realize this is based partly on unfamiliarity with Sage but I don’t care. I’ve seen enough T-Jack to know I’ve seen too much.
Gonna get that embroidered on a pillow.
