One year removed from the nightmare in New Orleans, it was certainly understandable why Minnesota Viking football fans were green with envy Sunday watching the NFC and AFC championship games. Continue Reading

That last young man they had playing looked plenty good to me! No one is going to be super good right away. You have to bring them along slowly and develop them. Look at Favre when he came up he was terrible and couldn’t read a defense at all. Holmgren brought him along and taught him what he needed to know but then he thought he knew more than the coaches.

Neither Roethlisberger or Rogers are “pure pocket passers”. Although they are both good in the pocket, what makes them great is their athletisism and ability out of the pocket.
And McNabb or Young? Did our old “QB Guru” Childress write this article?
No matter what they do, it will be a while before they are competitive again. Time to dump guys like Hutchinson and McKinney while they can still get some value for them and start over.

I agree with the sentiment. The Vikings need to draft a quarterback. A $10 million fine for anybody flying to Mississippi might also be a good idea. However, one wonders if Schnepf actually knows what a quarterback is or understands much about the history of the Vikings. To suggest that Tarkenton went 0-3 because he was not a pocket passer is very strange. The quality of the opponents had a considerable effect on the outcome of those three games. I am uncertain as to what category of quarterback is most appropriate for Joe Kapp. However, he was more of a pocket passer than Tarkenton and played on a team that should have demolished the opponent in the Super Bowl. However, they lost that game and it is hard to pin the blame on the quarterback. A defense that was spectacular in the NFL was simply ill-equipped to deal with an offense that that evolved to the next level.
It is especially strange to contend that either Vince Young or Donovan McNabb might be a good choice to mentor a young quarterback. Both of them want to BE the quarterback and not be the mentor. Neither one of them is a pure pocket passer. In the case of Young, it should be obvious that the marvelous quarterback who took Texas to the BCS title never really made it to the NFL.
