    Childress isn't a bad coach. I'm not sure if you've seen any Vikings games yet this season but Jackson is a terrible quarterback. IMO, this is a great move for the Vikings.

    No surprise here. Jackson is a terrbile qb. He just doesn't make good decisions with the ball, and and is horribly inaccurate. I think the vikings will do much better with Ferotte in there, which says alot.

    jackson maybe bad but i disagree childress is a good coach. he is quite bad. he took a lot of credit for developing mcnabb and said he could do the same with jackson and traded 2 3rd rounders to move up to the 2nd round to pick him. yet his offensive playcalling has been run twice and then rollout jackson for a throw on 3rd down. childress is horrible. iam sure viking fans will agree.

    The problem is, benching a lousy QB is only a great move if you can replace him with a non-lousy QB. Gus Frerotte is the definition of journeyman backup. He's 37 years old, has played for 8 teams, and his all-time-high passer rating for a season where he started 8 or more games was 79...12 years ago.

    At this point Frerotte is a better quarterback than Jackson is which is why it's a good idea to put him in there. If Frerotte can make a few more plays through the air than Jackson did, then that opens things up for the devestating 1-2 combo that Minnesota has.

    They benched a lousy quarterback for another lousy quarterback. Way to go, Vikes.

    Frerotte, like a fine wine, only gets better with age. I am sure he will build on that 74 passer rating earned in 186 games since 1994.

    Somehow, "credible passing threat" does not immediately come to mind. At least 1 of the 5 NFL teams he called home was the Vikings.

    Maybe...over the past 4 seasons Frerotte was:

    352/665 (53%) for 4037 (6.0 YPA), 25 TD, 25 INT

    That doesn't even compare well to other journeyman vets who started the year as backups. Take Brian Griese:

    524/804 (65%) for 5791 (7.2 YPA), 38 TD, 33 INT

    For all the preseason grousing about the Patriots QB depth, any one of their 3 QBs would have been a starter for the Vikings!

    Frerotte may not be good but he's in a decent situation with a killer running game and some talent at WR. Not sure if he'll be successful but Jackson sure wasn't so it's time to look around. With the offense around him it's possible he'll do alright.

    Their O-Line and D-Line are awesome. Teams are going to have a hell of time dealing with that once they all start playing like a team, and based on what I saw Sunday, they are getting there.

    The problem here is Jackson is a project that getting utilized too early. The kid has the skill sets but he needs alot of work.

    Vince Young is in the same boat.

    It's amazing that people can't figure out how good Aaron Rogers and Tony Romo are as "young qb's" and don't realize the time it takes to develop them.

    We should also cut out guys a little slack on drafting a qb to develop.

    A week too late for me.

    The one game I really wanted them to win this season was against the Colts and they blew it.

    Having both the Colts/Chargers at 0-2 right now would feel great.

    Posting that in this forum is futile.
    A majority of Patsfans believe that rookie O'Connell was the answer when Brady went down.

    Its just unbelievable how there are only 32 jobs in all of the world for calling NFL plays, yet 30 of the 32 consistently call plays so stupid that Joe Average Fan can criticize them and tell them how horrible their playcalling is.
    You would think in a world where you only have to own a computer and have access to the internet to be an expert on playcalling, that the NFL could find 32 of them that dont suck at it.

    well..i didnt mean to say specific plays like we all second guess and criticize with every game ...in my opinion and i have seen a lot of viking fans and minn media who think the the offensive system is inept in minnesota. especially after the coach called it the "kick ass offense" a couple of yrs ago and said it just needs to be executed better. the viking fans actually have a site called Kick Ass Offense | Minnesota Vikings News now.thats all i meant not a particular call or offensive series.whole world knew this far peterson will run the ball up the middle twice and jackson will throw on 3rd down rolling out.

    Jackson flat-out sucks. Frerotte isn't very good either, but they should be a playoff team anyways with him.

    2 games to late, they could be 2-0 without Jackson, and they should have found a better alternative.

    brad pretty much said he is going with TJ because he is the future, almost putting his job on the line for this guy. it looks like he has wised up. to me, brad childress is a bad head coach. he does not seem to show much modivation, or leadership and has a predictable offensive gameplan. what is really stunning is jackson has the best running game in football and STILL sucks. think of how good AP would be if teams even had to try and stop the pass

    i think he has a huge ego. remember how he played games with the injury report mocking BB when we were supposed to play them ? also called BB dishonest for discussing the garrett mills issue
