Get rid of Jackson

9 posts in this topic

I know its only halftime and its early in the season and he is young, but I am sick of Tavaris Jackson missing short throws to wide open receivers for what could be big plays. There were several throws in the first half of this game that I could of easily completed and I'm built like a lineman. Jackson is making me with we still had Cullpepper. Maybe they can get Randall Cunningham or Brad Johnson to come back. I would like to see them bench Jackson and put Holcomb or even Brooks Bollinger into the game. They should be winning this game, but not with the ugliness we are seeing at QB. It's frusterating to watch. Rant over. Now you have my opinion.

I'm sick of him missing those throws when he's wide open to run 5 yards for the 1st down, yet he forces a throw into a receiver 2' away from him. Frustrating. Run Tavaris! Run! grin.gif

His receivers didn't help him out a couple of times either. At least 3 balls that should have been caught.

Like when he drilled Williamson in the numbers early on in the game. Cripes man! He did redeam himself with that "I can't believe he caught that!" touchdown but you still have to catch those short ones.

What are you talking about it's just a "rebuilding year"....for pack of years. Of course you wonder if they would have taken Quinn in the first round instead of All Day what would have happened.....I guess if our record holds we should have about the #5-7 pick again this season.

I think its too soon to put Jackson out to pasture. Give him the year and see how it goes. No picks thats impressive.

He is a rookie and you expect him to be the next Tom Brady? Get real, it won't happen. Jackson needs atleast another full season to become a good QB, which I believe we have that time, since the vikings are rebuilding, atleast on offense. Why would we waste our time with putting in journeymen like Holcomb and Bollinger?

Just sit back and enjoy Adrian Peterson.

I think someone had suggested earlier that they should just hike the ball directly to Adrian Peterson. That may be a strategy that would pan out better grin.gif

I can't totally blame T-Jack. Throwing to the likes of Butterfingers Williamson doesn't help his stats much. Look on the bright side, when T-Jack guns 'em into the turf they can't be intercepted grin.gif

Just a note on the Vikes QB's this year compared to other QB's at college and pro levels.... Jackson and the Holcomb take way too much time getting from center back into the pocket. It really is noticable if you look at it. Check out Romo and how fast he gets back into a pocket on passing plays. Jackson needs to get back faster for himself to have more time to look for a open receiver. The game Jackson got really beat up in (lions I think) it was unreal how long it took for him to get back into a comfortable passing position.-- and he got beat up pretty bad.

Just something I have seen,

      Well better you found it now and not this weekend or you would be SOL fore sure being the 4th.  Nothing wrong with a good old lake bath though!  Good Luck.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Use leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama.

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.
