Interesting report from @JasonColeYahoo that Vikes are among teams interested in Tarvaris Jackson. Never thought Spielman was a big fan.

Um. Okay. Possibilities.

1. Crap. Utter, utter crap.
2. Vikings want to weaken a division rival by scooping up a guy that's a decent backup to keep him out of GB's hands and force them to stick with Harrell (even though McCoy is out there for cheap)
3. Cut Sage, move Webb to...somewhere. KR/PR, receiver, safety, CB, coordinator, head chef, soothsayer, magi, something?
4. LOADS of crap/malarky.

Maybe they can use him at Wide Receiver.

Maybe they aren't interested. Maybe they just say they are in hopes that the Packers make sort of a panic move and maybe give up more then they were actually planning? :confused:

I still think Jackson is a capable backup and if he were to come back in that capacity (knowing he would not be the starter) I would be fine with it. Jackson was just not starter material. Could he beat out Rosenfels? Possibly. Webb? Again, Possibly. Ponder? Nope. I wouldn't give up anything for him, but if we could get him as a back-up, I would not have heartburn with it. Remember, I was one of the vocal critics of Jackson when he was here because he is NOT a starting QB. He can manage a game or two if Ponder has to go out in the season for an injury.

OK - I know I'm in the minority here - Flame away! :flamed: :D

I won't flame you for it. I just don't see any real point in bringing Jackson in as a backup. Would he give them a better chance to win than either of the current backups could give them?

Awww ... if only TJ had been given a proper chance with the Seahawks I'm sure he would have solidified his place as starter.

I honestly think Webb is a better "change of pace" QB than Jackson, but if they "try them out" and Jackson wins the spot, then I have no issues. Part of my problem with Jackson before was that Rosenfels (or whomever - Take your pick) would actually play better than Jackson and Childress would still list Jackson as #1 (or #2 when Favre was here) regardless of the fact that Jackson wasn't playing as well as the guy below him in the depth chart.

Would this move end the Webb experiment and allow the Vikes to shift him to WR or returner? If so, I support it 100% because Webb needs to be on the field.

I don't see Webb moving to any other position. Frazier has already said prior to the season that they don't want to continue to move Webb around. They want him to have some stability at a position, focus all of his effort in one place, and if it doesn't work out it doesn't work out.

Plus how else would you get Webb on the field? Hand offs? As Jim pointed out in another post, Webb seems to have a knack for scrambling out of broken passing plays but beyond that he doesn't seem to bring much to the table.

Well it is true JIm, I do have a problem in the sense that I tend to favor players that either never pan out or not extremely popular with the fan base. Ever since we drafted him I have liked Tarvaris Jackson. Ever since I joined the board almost six years ago, I have promoted Tarvaris. It is possible you and many other older members on this board may remember me defending him. Now I am not blind, as I understand Tarvaris Jackson is nothing more than an average QB. However, there is something about him that has made me like him since day one. I mean, I got his jersey shortly after we drafted him.... :)

I've favored a few of those myself (*cough* Troy Williamson *cough*)...

I understand (and I do remember you defending him). we all have players like that.

Honestly, I always liked Jackson's attitude and demeanor. He conducted himself well even during times when he must have felt like throttling Brad Childress.

Don't worry, I had Williamson's back all the way until the last game of the 07 season at Denver. Some other more recent 'winners' I really liked as Vikings include (but are not limited to): Erasmus James, Travis Taylor, Koren Robinson, Javon Walker, C.J. Mosely, and Mike Rosenthal.

Man, I really have a great track record! :lol:

Thanks for the info, although that's not exactly a shocker. I can't imagine they were actually interested in bringing TJ back after they showed zero interest in re-signing him after 2010.

The Vikings are fine on passing on TJ. I don't agree that they're fine at quarterback.

Ponder might work out, but beyond him? Sorry but I don't think this team's current QB depth is all that good.

It's not a major liability when you compare our depth chart to other teams at the position.

It's Jackson: while I wouldn't have heartburn if he returned (I still think he is fine as a backup) I don't have any real heartburn that he's not returning either. He's maybe better than the 96th "best" QB in the league, but he's certainly not the 33rd "best". I think we'll manage fine...

Our #3 is better than most #2s in the league.

Too bad our #2 shouldn't even be playing the position. :lol:

If Ponder goes down and Webb takes over, it will become a major liability.
