Default Jackson Benched in favor of Frerotte in Minny.

http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/10982521

I think that's going to do it for Tavaris Jackson in Minnesota, and probably signifies an early end for the Vike's Season. Frerotte is good for a few wins, but the most games he's ever won in a season was nine.

He's can't be any worse than TJ, though.

I bet they beat Carolina this week. Home game, they are 0-2, desperate, have a great defense...

Wow, So much for tarvaris jackon stepping up this year and taking the vikes to superbowl. This has to be major disappointment for Childress.

Frerotte will be alright....until he does another celebratory head butt.

Edit: Since I'm stuck on the subject of head butting, here is footage of another hilarious incident.

Why Childress ever thought TJ would turn into a good QB is beyond me. The guy makes Vince Young look like Peyton Manning. They will have a better chance of winning games with Frerotte, who somehow, some way, seems to end up being the starter everywhere he goes.

well childress is saying that he hasn't given up hope on tj yet.. but maybe he can learn... but they have an awesome running game all they need is a decent qb to make a couple of throws

Take from a lofe-long vikes fan--Childress is the problem. He's had three years to figure out that Jackson can't play qb in the NFL. Last 2 seasons--out -coached by Herm Edwards, that guy in Det., Mike McCarthy (last five meetings), Joe Gibbs, Mike Shanahan, Tony Dungy, etc. He clearly has no back-bone, and coaches "not to lose." He has one of the best running games, and potentially one of the best defenses in the NFL. If he doesn't smarten up quick, he will lose them both.
