One dynamic quarterback from glory

Recommended Posts

Get him here to help teach T-jack for a year? Are you kidding me? You could give that kid ten years with Favre, Marino, Elway and Montana and you still come out with Junk. Two good games a year maybe and that's if all the cards fall right.

Watching and supposedly learning from the sidelines is overrated anyways. Aikman, both the Mannings, Montana, Roethlisberger among others never took an entire year off and look at the number of Super Bowl rings there. Big Ben took over for Maddox midseason, I doubt he learned much. The best QBs learn on the field. Not holding a clipboard.

But the best QB's have something to bring to the field!

Nuf said right there. I think free agency doesn't start until like the 27th, doesn't it??

How about Byron Leftwich??? He will be an unrestricted free agent in a couple of weeks. Probably not the best choice with his lightening fast release of the ball, but hadn't seen his name thrown in the mix yet.

Anyone on here really believe for even one second that the Vikes would bring in a QB the likes of Cassell or Brady? It just isn't going to happen.

I'm not saying Favre is going to be a saving grace, but he is the best option that the Vikes would truly consider.

40+ years of mediocrity with no end in sight.

Did you think a year ago the vikes would make the trade they did to get Jared Allen?? After how aggressive they were last year i would say anything is possible.

The field isn't the best place for tjack to learn. That's pretty obvious.

Tjack has nothing in common with the quarterbacks you mentioned. Brees, Cutler, Favre, Brady, Romo, Rogers(sorry)and Rivers all sat and learned for one or more years. Throwing a guy in there when he clearly isn't ready is a death sentence for quarterbacks. Vince Young, David Carr,Ryan Leaf, Alex Smith come to mind. Tjack is/was a project that, to me anyway, has failed miserably. We reached for him in the draft and both he and chilly have been underwhelming, to say the least.

I guess I've given up on tjack and am down for us to put anybody on the field but him.

For the record the whole Favre deal wouldn't be my first option.

Not much out there in free agency QB wise. Mostly guys who are stop gap players. No quick fix quarterbacks out there.

I also don't think there is a QB we can draft and immediately start.

Hopefully tjack can figure it out this offseason. I have my doubts, but hey, I've been wrong before.

Word our of Cleveland is that Derek Anderson is due a huge roster bonus here at the start of free agency and that the team has already given the reins to Brady Quin for next season.....

What happened to Anderson though? He tore up his arm or knee or something didn't he?

Last year he completed only 50% of his passes with a QB Rating of 66.5. Not exactly "dynamic" in my book.

Oh, I know. He brings nothing to the table, and the guys I mentioned have talent. Look, Jackson was a Div II QB, I know it, you know it, we all know it. He says he transferred because he wasn't going to play. After watching him, I can see why.

You are talking about Derek Anderson, right? 99% of his problems last season were in direct effect with the fact that Braylon Edwards forgot how to catch the ball between his Pro Bowl season and last year. Aside from Edwards, Winslows the only other decent option. I feel bad for any QB that has a WR that can't catch and a tight end as his 2 options. Not destined to put up great numbers in that scenario.

Zam you hit the nail on the head, Not only that when ISN'T Winslow injured at some point and time during a season?? No running game don't help any either. I will take Derek in a heartbeat over T-jack and roll that way. Draft another qb while we are at it, and a right guard and lets play!

Yep, Andersons a huge upgrade from Gus and TJack. Weird saying this now, but Anderson was drafted ahead of Warner this last year in our fantasy draft.

If we could get Anderson for a mid round pick I think it would be worth a shot. At least there would be a good competition in camp. Anderson, at worst, would be able to manage the game better than tjack.

WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING TO RESOLVE THE QUARTERBACK SITUATION!

Anderson got shafted...I watched him make tons of nice plays and throw the deep ball just for the wr's to drop most of them..alot of them were in the endzone...Anderson has one of the bigger arms for qb's in the league.

The team was playing like dung and they have a qb in the wings that cleveland wants to make love with.

Anderson is horrible but COULD be an up-grade over T-Jack...

Anderson is not that great. He's serviceable but so is T-Jack and he certainly not a huge upgrade.

We need someone better and with a little savvy. If we fix the O-line Hasselbeck might be a good option.

Anderson is Pro Bowl material, Hassel sore back WAS and TJunk never will be.

Saying Anderson is pro-bowl material is QUITE a leap. He is an interesting option though, and I would welcome him in Purple anyday. Hasselback is used goods and I'd much rather stay with TJack or give Booty a shot before we waste any draft picks etc... on guys like this.

I said it in another post, and it is true- when his top reciever Edwards was catching the ball he was one of the best QBs in the NFL. Edwards somehow turned into Troy Williamson this past season and dropped 3/4ths of the balls thrown to him. He is young has a great arm and is one of the better options out there right now. So no, not QUITE a leap, it is the truth.

Kerry Collins, Hasselback, Anderson, I think would all be a good fit here. All should be able to be had for middle round picks, and wont cost the team its future if it doesnt work out(Cassel). Anyone of them would be a good starter, or a great backup if T-Jack somehow has a great preseason. I think if the Vikes would have went after Derek Anderson last year we could have been playing the Steelers this year for the big game.

i think anderson is the best option for the team for whats out there...i wouldn't mind hasselbeck though either...either one of those i'd be happy forsure.

best thing about anderson is he's still young at the age of 25 and he's 6'6 with a big arm and he won't break the bank....he had a nice 07 season with 3800 yards and 29 td's.

i think playing qb for the vikes would be a little easier then playing qb for the browns....their running game is nonexistent and they play balt and pitt twice a year.

    • Dakota Loing
      Hey I was curious to see if there were any active fishing clubs near whitebear lake or forest lake 
    • Dave S
      I think the largest was maybe 10". Didn't notice any tullibee cruising through but it's very possible.  Just surprised that if they were there, that we didn't get any.   There was a small walleye that came top side as well.
    • IceHawk
      Well before light. Try to be on  ice fishing  before daybreak normally. Early bird gets the worm has always been my philosophy. 😉 Nothing better IMO than  watching the sun rise a ,hot cup of coffee and fish on my vex its like a dream I never want to end 😀 I will  fish in midday afternoon if Im on a more relaxed schedule. We can make anything work. 
    • IceHawk
      Well done Dave ! Get any 13 inch Plus? Hook any tullies or see any in that area ?
    • IceHawk
      Smurfy that N end is always busy in winter very productive area easy access. Been like that for over 30 plus years that I've fished it. Pretty consistent bite in the N bay every year unless they go on a freshwater shrimp kick then they can be tough to entice at times 😲 A bunch of untapped water on that S end but a few guys venture out there and find fish. Town bay area is generally a good spot as Millers bay.

      Me too. once he moves a house over that 60' hole! 😄

      Well I went out tonight for a short amount of time before dark. I had my son(2.5) and wife along so didn't have a lot of time to scout or fish. There were only two other permanents on the lake that I could see from the public landing. There was a plowed road and 4 trucks in the parking lot. We set up in 14' of water but never marked anything. I'll head back another time. Thanks for the tip Rick!

      Passed you up workin those docks today, figured I'd throw a chatter bait around the pads down that shoreline ...... Purple was good today 😉
    • Dave S
      We started in the area I mentioned to you this morning but the small perch were relentless and saw nothing else there. We made a move again and couldn't believe my eyes. 60 FOW and suspended  20 feet up. They didn't just cover the water column between 40-50 feet. THEY SMOTHERED IT. As you can see from the pic, we had a Garmin Live Scope with us. Holy Cow is all I can say. It helped us mobilize and follow the fish but the lure choice and color selection was critical. It sure started getting busy out there by the time we left 😆.
