3. He took some pretty wicked shots - they need to work on protecting him, because it's pretty clear that opposing defenses are looking to be the guys who put him on the shelf. Max protect, whatever it takes - he's going to get beat all to hell out there. .


This is the single biggest concern I have for Brett's health.. his legs aren't under him yet (imagine that, skipping camp and all) and they are going to have protection break downs.

I hate to say it, but I think his "ironman" streak ends this season.. either that or the Vikings as a team will suffer for it..

On a side note.. Minnesota papers are saying TJ is the odd man out at QB for the Vikes.. "schism" or not.. the Vikes are punting on the subject. ;)



Agreed. Part of conditioning is getting your body in shape to handle the day-to-day abuse that comes with playing football. It's not just getting your arm in shape or whatever, it's getting your overall conditioning level up to a point where the bumps and bruises aren't so bad as they'd normally be. He's had NONE of that this year, and that kickass O line isn't keeping him very clean thus far. He could easily end up hurt, and then what do they do? If I'm TJack I'd tell 'em to go spit if they asked me to step in.

Did anyone else hear the cut by Chris Carter at halftime about the miss to Harvin in the endzone?

Those high school WR down in Mississippi must be faster than Harvin.

Cracked me up at the time.

Pretty much the same feeling everyone else has, he was good and efficient. Someone mentioned the deep throw that was praised as giving his receiver a chance to make a play and reading the coverage right. Man that pissed me off. Safety help was there and if that ball hangs a split second longer it's picked off and Favre would have been blasted for throwing one up. God I hate announcers. Anyway, I think they're very beatable for us this year.

Considering this offense has only been together for what? 13 days.. Favre was more than adequate. Should of had that TD to Percy, but like the announcers said.. Percy is a rookie, and he looked it (caught a ball just short of the first down, didn't have the 'go get the ball' mentality on that end zone ball, etc).

I'm not worried about Favre getting better with this offense. I'm more worried about HBs missing their blocks on all out blitzes. The one sack that Favre had, AP made wrong reads and went to the outside to help the T block and left the inside blitzer go untouched. Hopefully he gets that cleared up.

Not every team is going to blitz the Vikings that much during the season, either. So, as far as I'm concerned.. They just need to continue working on their chemistry.

The people "who know what they're doing" say Brett looked good Monday night. Seems I would have to agree with that.

However, it's my observation Favre was fired up, motivated, and sharp. He'll go far if he can stay at that level all season. I think the pundits need to consider Favre getting tired, banged up, and having an attitude when he doesn't want to spend the time watching film and preparing for each game.

I understand now why Favre was peeved we didn't get Randy Moss. They both only play when they feel like it. :p

It remains beyond me why Jackson is the odd man out this preseason. Of all the QBs on that roster, he has easily looked by far the sharpest. The Vikings organization has gotten myopic to the point where they HAVE to win this season or there will be a fan revolt.

At least, I hope for the sake of their own self-respect, Viking fans aren't apathetic about losing as fans of some other teams are.

Agreed. If it's all about putting the best 52 players together, Jackson sure as hell should not be the odd man out. But they sure look like they're just going to chuck him to the curb.

I hope he returns to Minnesota soon with another team and runs them out of their shitty stadium.

2. He went down like a rag doll if an opposing player so much as tapped him. I really hope that's an attempt not to get hurt, though his low shot on that safety would suggest he's not too worried about that. All I know is that he never went down that easy w/ the Pack (Strahan's record aside).
