Sometimes Twitter makes you just sit there with your jaw hanging to the floor. That happened a couple seconds ago when Jason Cole of Yahoo posted this:


Tarvaris Jackson back to the Vikings? All right, I know what a few of you are thinking. He’s not a bad #2 quarterback. In fact he’s probably more reliable at this point than either Joe Webb or Sage Rosenfels. Maybe. But think about this. If Christian Ponder gets hurt and Tarvaris Jackson is your #2 quarterback? That means Tarvaris Jackson becomes your starting quarterback.

Is that what we really want? T-Jack Redux? Didn’t we get enough the first time? Now, granted, it would be a totally different circumstance. Before T-Jack was in there trying to prove he could start, whereas under this preposterous scenario, he would be strictly a veteran 2 and not a long-term option. Again, maybe there’s an argument to be made for doing this. But forget about reason and logic and all that. Ask yourself this question:

Do you really want to see Tarvaris Jackson back in a Vikings uniform in any capacity?

I think we all know the right answer to that question. That answer is no no no, a thousand times no. With a heaping helping of no on top.
