OK, so I ranted previously about Tarvaris “No Skill” Jackson, the Quarter Back for the Minnesota Vikings, and how Head Coach Brad Childress needs to bench Jackson’s sorry can. Well, it finally happened!!!
After losing the first two games of the season, Minnesota coach Brad Childress decided the Vikings can no longer afford to let 25-year-old quarterback Tarvaris Jackson learn on the job.
Well no kidding. This is Jackson’s third season in the NFL, his second as a starter, and he has yet to play a full season.
Jackson completed just 51 percent of his passes this season. He threw a game-ending interception at Green Bay that sealed the Packer victory and was partly responsible for the offense settling for five field goals and scoring no touchdowns in an 18-15 loss to the Colts.
“I know there’s many other plays, there’s a lot of other people that have to step up,” Childress said. “But then when you go back through and look at the tape,…
Exactly, when you go back through and look at the tape, you see that Tarvaris Jackson just isn’t cut out to be an NFL Quarter Back. He was drafted with the hope of being a diamond in the rough, someone who Coach Childress could mold into a successful NFL QB.
Sorry, Brad, it ain’t happenin! And with the weapons that you have surrounding ole “No Skill,” namely Adrien Peterson, Bernard Barrian, Chester Taylor, a top 3 Offensive Line, the #1 Defensive Line in the NFL which includes a newly acquired Jared Allen pass rushing on the corner, the Viking management will make things fairly clear, either Jackson goes or you go. And I know you want to keep your job.
Now all we have to do is find our QB of the future. Gus Frerotte is a career backup so he’ll do for now, but we need somebody solid for the next couple of years. Well, we did draft John David Booty from USC this year. Hmmmm…
