Booty gone!!!

26 posts in this topic

I can't believe that the Vikings cut Booty and kept Jackson. I liked Booty much better than Jackson, and the odds that either of them are going to see playing time is very limited this season. If things play out like them seem to, Booty will be picked up by another team and show that he can be a very good NFL QB, meanwhile the Vikings sit with Jackson on our bench as a "work in progress". Only time will tell, but I think the Vikings have wasted enough time and money on this guy.

Booty was (is) horrible, Jackson showed he CAN play at times at least. I will be surprised if Booty is signed anywhere other than our practice squad.

I agree with Musky. If you look at the string of QB's that were former Trojan's, there is a great history there and I don't think Booty will be much different. While I think Jackson can and will be a fine QB, I feel that Booty had the same potential.

It sounds like Booty fans can relax. Judd Zulgad is reporting that he cleared waivers and will be on the practice squad.

Booty doesn't rank anywhere near the top of the USC quarterbacks talentwise. He was basically carried along by the superior talent around him. He was good but not on the same level as Palmer. Also there aren't many success stories, at quarterback, from USC lately.

Isn't that what they would be doing if they would have kept booty??? At least jackson has shown improvement, they are much better letting jackson sit on the bench this year and learn from favre!!!

Jackson may be what Brad Childress is remembered for specifically here in Minnesota...for better or worse! While he's going to go down as one of the most uninspiring playcallers in MN Vikings history, I think he's much more connected to T-Jack's success or failure. Many times he has put a lot of faith in T-Jack, very publicly. If T-Jack fails (as I believe he will), the only thing that can erase that blemish on his legacy would be a super bowl victory. With the talent the organization has put together around the rest of the field, it's now up to the coaches to call an inspired game and make sure the players play up to their potential.

Well here is my big question........how long does everyone still consider Jackson a "work in progress?" Eventually, he has to be labeled a flop and cut loose for cryin out loud. He has been given more than enough chances and has not capitalized on any of them. He has had his chance, now they should have given Booty the same chance and let Jackson run the practice squad.

How can anyone possibly say Booty is ahead of Jackson? Botty has a long way to go before he ever starts for any team in the NFL. If he is so great how come no other teamed claimed him. Notice also that no team wanted to even trade a jug of gatorade for Jackson.

T Jack can't run the practice squad- he has too much active game time. Booty was still eligible because he was active for only 1 game last year. It has to be under 9 games in 1 season to be eligible.

T Jack is only in his 4th year. For a qb, he is still young. Most QB's don't develop until they hit their mid-late 20's. He still has time to develop. The thing I worry about with him is when he has pressure- as a starter and in big games. He has looked good since we signed Favre this year- pressure OFF! Which, with any young qb is a concern. Only experience can help you over come that pressure. The success in the last few years of the rookie qb's- Flacco, Ryan, Roethlisberger is somewhat of a farce. It usually doesn't happen and in all of those situations those qb's came into veteran teams with big time Defenses and a good/great RB and very good receivers. The Vikes D was not all that when T Jack was a rookie and our receivers have been HORSE&*(* until this season.

I think T Jack is going to be our back up, at least to start the season with Sage as the #3. I will be surprised if we don't sign him after this year, unless Chili and his regime are gone.

Unless you personally know Booty or have been hanging around down in Mankato, how can a person honestly have feelings about him being tossed? By his NFL pre-season stats? smirk

If you look at his college past, it is pretty sad. He did break some record in a bowl for TD's and lead his team to a victory. Short of that he was a bench warmer and still got injured almost every season. crazy

I can not even believe there was any question about Jackson or him.

Geez,

we're 5-0 and still you guys are whining about T-Jack who has looked pretty good lately.

Even though one wouldn't know it by all the lame excuses and hand wringing you whiners keep throwing out there about T-Jacks surprisingly good performances. smile

I'm happy to have T-Jack as our back-up QB.

Not sure why you whiners are crying so hard about that laugh

Good one!

Ryan Leaf would look good in mop-up time too!

It's pretty obvious that when the pressure is off Jackson can hang in there. He won't win the game for you, but probably won't completely give it away either.

With that said, he's a perfect candidate for the practice squad where there is no pressure! Of course it's hard to showcase his "talents", i.e. trade bait, if you can't bring him in with a 20+ point lead to prance around for a minute or two.

Tjunk has not taken a meaningful snap this season.

Tjunk is a mediocre at best QB.

If Chilly was not our coach TJunk would not be in Purple.

You might want to try watching th games to the end harvey lee laugh

When I say surprisingly good, I don't just mean T-Jack showed good skills. I mean he shoed surprisingly good skills.

Now it will be fun to just add some pressure to the situation and see how he performs.

Tavaris Jackson has had some pressure added to the situation many times. Mostly he failed. Jackson supporters are finally seeing what a winner (Favre) can do with the tools around him. As a Packer fan, I've enjoyed watching this argument go on and on. As long as the Vikings stuck with Jackson, the team was going to be stuck in mediocrity. Now that there is a QB who knows how to play with pressure, the Vikings are playing outstanding. THIS is what the Vikings were missing....Jackson was the clog in the Vikings toilet.

You know what you have in Jackson, and it's not a game-winning quarterback. It's a guy who shows his best during mop up time. Booty gave some hope for the future. That's what your 3rd QB should be...a guy who might develop into something. Jackson's development is done at this point. That dog has learned its tricks.

    •     They were in all different stages on this lake, was messed up and I didn't know what was going on
    • Good Borch!   I have seen a large up tick of birds locally as well this last.  Although not hunting.   Trying to convince the wife and kids to hit a time or two yet.
    • They can sure humble a person. 
    • Well I tagged out this morning.   I got out later as my daughter and her family were over so I headed out after breakfast.  I drove by the field to see if there were any there so I could plan a route to the blind.   There was a fl8cknof Jake's and a flock of longbeards.  I quickly snuck into my blind and stuck a funky chicken decoy out.  As I was stepping into the blind the Jake's start clearing the trees between the blind and them.  They worked around out front a ways.  Suddenly I see 2 toms fly into the field.  The jakes immediately charged the toms driving them out of the field.  After that the jakes saw the funky chicked and headed over to check it out.  With the toms gone and time dlipoung away I picked one out and shot him at 30 yards.  He'll taste good on rhe grill this summer.   Got in the blind at 10 am and was done by 10:15 am.  It's been a long season. 
    • Fun in the yak today in SE SD caught and released a bunch of these today:
    • How can a bird with brain the size of a pea out smart us!
    • The 2 lakes i bass fish have slowed way down the last week.   A swim-bait ripple shad was hot ticket for a while but that is just a pike attraction right now.  Been switching to a Senko and helped a little.   Pads are coming up fast now and we should see a spike up in activity soon.  Cannot wait to throw the frogs soon as that is the biggest rush watching those eruptions in the water!!   Thanks for posting as i found it to be quite slower than usual also.   Which means i need to find better ammo during those times.  
    • Tomorrow we will be back at it
    • I am giving it a last hurrah tomorrow. Sorry I haven't been able to check in here much. I have hardly been able to get out this year between work, a baby at home, and a recent trip out of the country for a relative's wedding.    Last time I was out I had a real nice Tom within 20 yards after a very long standoff. I think I screwed it up by rushing myself a bit. He stood around 50 yards out literally strutting back and forth like someone had drawn a line in the mud that he wouldnt cross. He must not have wanted to fight with the strutter decoy we had out. He did that for 45 minutes to an hour and finally came our way after a hen led him towards us.    They came past us but were outside the decoys and angling slightly away from us. Then the tom turned and started angling straight at the strutter decoy. That meant he was basically quartering to me and when he was 15-17 yards or so out I drew because in the back of my mind i was thinking if he kept moving that way and past the decoy he would quickly be in a spot I would have had no shot.   In hindsight I think he had realized (once he got close enough) that he would have been able to whoop up on the decoy and he was coming in to do just that. I probably should have waited to see, but I didn't and right as I hit the backwall of my draw his head popped up on alert and he turned around and walked straight away knowing something wasn't quite right. I could have easily shot at him at 20 yards but he was facing away and I just didn't feel comfortable. I am confident I would have hit my mark but I didn't like shooting at something walking straight away when I am not experienced with bow hunting turkeys.   I know some people will say that I should have shot, but I have been bow hunting for awhile and never wounded anything because of a poor shot or poor shot selection, so I didn't want that to be a first. Hopefully I get a shot at redemption tomorrow!
