Read this, as Tarvaris Jackson, and Brian Westbrook and the rest of the Vikings and Eagles conspire to ruin The Common Man's January and leave him further disillusioned: The Essence of Vikings Fandom

Sorry about the Vike's! They did not look very good to me, but as a Lions guy....well, you know...

I don't know much about the Vikings, but as I watched this game, Jackson did not seem like he had a clue what he was doing. I was thinking this guy should not even be playing on Saturday - let alone Sunday!

Is he any good or is he just a project?

The Common Man said...

He's a project, drafted two years ago in the 2nd round as the heir apparent to The Common Man forgets who. He has good mobility and a strong arm, but it's scatter-shot. When he's on, he's on, but if he gets flustered, there's no telling where the ball is going on a play-to-play basis. That fourth quarter was some of the worst passing The Common Man has watched. Balls were goign every which way. Still, Gus Frerotte doesn't inspire any more confidence than Tarvaris does.
