Tarvaris Jackson has a blog, which he uses to tell everyone what he’s up to. This week, T-Jack is just chilling with his family, playing video games, cooking…and not worrying about Brett Favre.
“I’m not sweating whether Brett comes back or not because I’m a free agent,” Jackson blogged. “Depending on the collective bargaining agreement I’ll be either restricted or unrestricted, just waiting to see. Right now I still feel like a Viking, but I’m just going to have to wait a while to find out what’s going to happen.”
One thing has become clear: Jackson’s blogging is nearly as generic as his football playing.
And there’s another thing that’s clear to me: I never want to see Tarvaris Jackson take another snap as a member of the Vikings.
I said the same thing last year while the team was pursuing various quarterback options, including (it was rumored) Jay Cutler.
This off-season, the options include Favre, Sage Rosenfels and (according to rumors) Donovan McNabb.
If the Vikings do somehow land McNabb, they will need a solid guy to start the 2+ games he is sure to miss with injury, and for my money, Rosenfels is that guy.
The only way I see Tarvaris returning is if the Vikings realize they will not have Favre, McNabb or any better veteran option. They will then be forced to enter camp with T-Jack and Rosenfels, and let those guys duke it out.
A terrifying prospect. But not as terrifying as watching Favre become Y.A. Tittle.
