Chilly Sick of Talking About the "Back-up(s)"

Quote:
Brad Childress is tired of talking about Tarvaris Jackson

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on September 6, 2010 9:34 AM ET

Vikings coach Brad Childress has heard the theories. He knows that trading Sage Rosenfels wasn't a popular move. And Childress is sick of it.

Asked about the possibility of third-stringer Joe Webb playing this year on Sunday, Childress replied: "I'm not going to deal in hypotheticals. I'm done with the backup quarterback. I'm done with it. You guys, if that's all you've got to write, good Lord."

In one respect, we understanding Chilly's frustration. Despite his age, the odds are against Brett Favre missing any time this year. And the Vikings won't go anywhere without Favre, whether they kept Rosenfels or not.

The problem is more about the future. Folks in Minnesota don't see one at the position.

"We're talking about the two highest-scoring offenses [the Vikings and Saints] in the league last year playing each other," Childress said. "Let's talk about the game, instead of Joe Mauer's backup."

Hmm . . . I smell a PFT/HardballTalk crossover post. Who's worse: Tarvaris Jackson or Drew Butera?

Also Chilly explains why he feels T-Jack was better. He gets pretty riled up for Chilly at the end.:

"He has great practices that is why his is our #2 guy"....HUH?? "8 snaps compared to 36 snaps against the second team" Wasn't this the same Rams team that went 1-15 last year? If ya can't move the ball with 8 snaps against the worst team in the NFL, sorry that is not very good. Why did they not give TJ 36 snaps to see what he can do? Are they worried about injury? Or maybe they are more worried about him failing?

Just like Chilly I am sick of hearing about TJ. And I will be sick of it until we get rid of him.

i tend to agree with your post. as a fan i see tj on game day if at all. the coaches see him daily in practice. so you would think they know something i as a fan do not. a friend of mine watched practice and told me he doesn't see what childres sees in tj. i think childress doesn't want to admit he made a mistake in drafting tj and to compound that he cant get a bag of donuts for him in a trade. good luck.

I sense our great minnesota sports media to divide the team by not letting go of the decision. to now question chilly on every move/playcall he makes, and eventually bringing it to the vikings locker room for opinions and comments by players, creating tension among the team. From Burns wanting to retire over the Schnelker hounding, to running Green out of town because he took 8 of 10 division champoinships without a playoff win, to Tice and "loveboat" then to running randy moss ot of town for every pidley thing he did (fake mooning someone "thats disgusting!") they need to learn to move on, instead they like to pick, pester and eventually tear things appart. as far as coaches go, childress is in the middle of the pack, but he has built a pretty good staffand team overall. he knows quarterback is the weak link, otherwise favre wouldn't be here. the season hasn't even started and everyones in panic mode.

As if the MN media is worse than anywhere else?? Maybe you should check the media in other outlets. You will find that the MN media is pretty tame. If it wasnt clear to most everyone who the better option as backup QB was people wouldnt be asking the questions.

i'm not saying their NYC, but they don't drop a subject after the fact when there is nothing you can do about it anyway.

Chilly don't want to look like an [PoorWordUsage] but in the process he makes himself look like a bigger [PoorWordUsage].

Hey lets keep a QB that looks good in PRACTICE with no pressure!! We've all seen what the clown can do during real games.

I wish he could just admit his mistake and move on instead of getting all these other QB's in here and begging Favre to come back.

Im sorry but when it is stated that there is nothing Sage can do to claim the backup QB role, and then proceeds to clearly outplay junkson in the preseason, and then is traded away.....questions should be asked.

You could easily tell Chilly didn't like Sage one bit from the start. He never got a fair chance going against Chilly's man love. It's pretty sad when a coach says there's nothing one guy can do to beat out another guy, especially when the guy in question is junk.

T-Jack looked pretty good in his last 4 regular season starts against 1st teamers who actually game planned against him.

Sage looked good against 2nd and 3rd stringers wooohooo! Listening to you T-Jack haters you'd think he was the second coming....hahahaha.....The Vikings finally wised up and traded throwsandfalls smile

I suppose you Vikes name callers will all be Giants fans now that your man-love was traded to them!!

Face it Sage isn't even up to T-Jack's level, poor as it might be and you T-Jack haters are the ones who are wrong laugh

With your pants on the ground grin

Were two of those four starts against teams that had already clinched a playoff spot?

How about that 5th start against Philly? Do I need to post the video of T-Jacked-up with his pants on the ground after being carried backwards in mid-air about five yards?

LOL,

LMIT, are you still sour about how good T-Jack looked in the last 4 regular season games he started when he made your predictive powers look so BAD. cool

As for the Philly game, that one can be placed squarely on Chili's shoulders. Chili even made Favre look bad in the first half of that Bears game last year. A game we should have won that would have given us home field advantage frown

Rick you must think we all have bad memories. Do you remember a year ago when junkson looked like garbage a few times in the preseason and you junkson fans all said "ya hes playing against 2nd and 3rd stringers, but hes also playing with our 2nd and 3rd stringers. Wait til he plays with the 1st teamers and we will see him play better". So now a year later you have completely reversed your stance now that its Sage to fit your arguement. Now it doesnt matter that Sage is playing with 2nd and 3rd stringers, hes doing well because the other team has 2nd and 3rd stringers in. Going with your stance from last year, as well as Sage played with the 2nd and 3rd stringers, he should look even better with the 1st stringers? Which is it Rick? It doesnt go both ways.....

Junkson has never looked like a good QB ever..PERIOD.

He still to this day locks onto 1 reciever, can't read a defense, has horrid accuracy, doesn't know if he wants to run or pass, he's pathetic and all people can pretend is he's getting better LMMFAO.

Funny the Junkson fans love his stats when he gets to come into the game late in the 4th quarter to mop up teams that are just dead tired from us pounding their faces in all game. I'm sure Sage could come in and do just as good all fresh against a beatin and battered team.

Hopefully we never have to see Junkson play in a game that matters.

I don't recall ever saying any of the above, ever JW smile

Maybe only you then ehhh? cool

LOL, Not a T-Jack fan or a hater. I just said I haven't seen enough yet. I'm guessing I might at some point. Some of you believe you are football Gurus and are apparently privy to all the play and interactions going on in training camp that I haven't seen. You obviously believe you know more than all the coaches. I haven't heard any of Sages ex team-mates say Sage was the better QB!! I do believe T-Jack is second string and Sage was 3rd string and that was my throwsandfalls argument! I also said I don't believe comparing Sage playing against 2nd and 3rd stringers and comparing them to a QB playing against 1st stringers is not a good way to compare. Obviously T-Jack got 1st team reps for a reason...he's better than Sage smile That's it. ha

Well there are 3 people in this world that we know think that, as stated before, you, chilly, and junksons mom.

Do you really think any vikings are going to publicly state whether or not they agreed with letting go of Sage rather than junkson?

junkson got 1st team reps because of childress. Thats all there is to it, end of story. 31 other teams would have dumped junkson by now.

Bevel said something interesting, about the running backs,and how they are practicing well (blitzes, blocking, etc.)............and then he said" but we know that live games are a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ANIMAL". Maybe he should've let Childress know that about QB also............."I've seen all I need to in practice"................uh,huh

Exactly right on soldoncass, Looks like even Bevel is hinting about T-Jack and how he did what QBs are supposed to do in his last five regular season starts...he won!

T-Jack was winning regular season NFL games while Sage was riding the pine.

Proof is in the pudding T-Jack haters. laugh

Bevel wasn't talking OR hinting about Jackson at all......he was talking about the running backs looking good in PRACTICE picking up blitzes, etc..........BUT, GAMES ARE A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ANIMAL. In other words, just because practices went well, DOESN'T mean they will do well in games. Childress goes by practices....guys on here go by what we see IN GAMES. Rosenfels clearly outplayed Jackson in games this preseason.....by a LOT.....didn't matter which TEAM they were playing WITH or AGAINST....big difference in results.

Have you guys heard about the new reality/sitcom show coming soon to Fox:

I am starting to think all you guys are right. frown

Might as well start rooting for Green Bay this weekend. Picking my GB jersey up Sat. frown

Again, you guys are right and it can only add up to the Vikes moving.

The first 2 questions asked at every childress press conference this year should be:

1. How do you let 12 guys in the huddle

2. Why did you trade the better of your 2 backup QB's away.

      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.
    • Shulsebus
      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      Those are some fine specimens. Great job
    • gimruis
      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.
    • LakeofthewoodsMN
      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.
    • redlabguy
      Let’s start this by congratulating Brianf and son for winning their second City Autoglass Walleye Classic last weekend. These guys know how to fish.  We just got to the lake for the season. Chores are almost done and I’m ready to fish.  red(new dog is more yellow)labguy

      I tried starting a 2024 Lake Vermilion Fishing Report topic but it doesn't show up on this board.   Maybe somebody else knows how to do it?
