Worst Vikings Quarterback

31 posts in this topic

I would say that among those Qb T-Jack has accomplished the least. Some of those Qb would have done alot worse if it wasnt for the receiving core that they had to throw too though!

Off that list I'd have to go T-Jac right now. I swore Sean Salisbury started a few games back in 94 or so? If he were on the list, he'd have my vote as worst

I think this list is for only the QB who started the season as the starter!

Yes, going into the "hopeful" season grin

Didn't Spurgeon Wynn start a game? He'd have to take the cake.

We have had a few prize Qb play for us over the years.

They say Wade Wilson still hasn't made it home since he left the Vikings...someone painted a goal line in his driveway.

He was a one time Pro Bowler with the Vikings in 1988 and finished his career completing 1,391 passes on 2,428 attempts for 17,283 yards and 99 touchdowns. Wilson led the Vikings to three playoff appearances in the late 80's. The Vikings advanced to the NFC Championship Game in 1987 after a tremendous upset of the 13-2 San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round, but finally succumbed 17-10 to the eventual Super Bowl XXII champion Washington Redskins.

I'd take him right now wink

I think in '70 or '71 they went with 3 different starters...Cuozzo, Norm Snead, and I forget the other one.

That had to be the worse bunch. They all had experience, TJ is still new at the helm.

I'd have to say TJack for now. If 'ol Steve Dille would have been on that list, I would have picked him easily. eekwhistle

After an amazing game this Sunday and a couple more good ones after, will TJ be a point of trash talk then confused

I am just saying grin

I thought McMahon has a pooch season with the Vikes.

Maybe not to bad:

T-Jack for sure. A right handed QB throwing left handed might even be a better option.

TJ is the one. He's a joke. Doesn't have what it takes in the NFL. Some Hight school QB's could show this guy up. grin

I wouldn't go this far at all, but he certainly isn't in the top couple.

It's called sarcasm, hence the grin. Of course he's better than high school QB's, but he doesn't even come close to most if not all of the other NFL QB's.

How soon we forget Kelly Holcomb and Brooks Bollinger from last year.

Others not to forget: Bubby Brister, Bob Lee, Gino Toretta all started I think at least 1 game.

I'm sure there are more; let's hear 'em!!

None of those QBs were crowned the starter before the season started (two years in a row!!). The list Darren put up was just who the team went into the season with as their starter.

I'd compare TJoke to some of those other fellas if he went in to replace an injured started somewhere mid-season...maybe learn something, actually compete for a starting job the next year...instead of having it handed to him.

Unfortunately, TJoke was crowned the starter last year and this year after showing no NFL-caliber skills whatsoever.

There are probably 15 backup quarterbacks in the league, and at least 30 retired ones, who could play better tomorrow than TJoke will, if someone would make the call.

I don't understand why the team would spend 30 mil plus on a D end, plus the HUGE salaries they're paying for an O-line, plus all day AP, and then settle for such a weak quarterback. Honestly, pick any free agent veteran and you'd have a better option for TODAY. By the time TJoke shows any skillz out there, we'll have the other players on the team either leave town for a competetive team or retire. These guys are all very competitive and nobody likes losing.

History has shown that even moderately capable quarterbacks can win games (Trent Dilfer??), let's go get one NOW instead of HOPING that TJoke turns around.

My prediction is that the vikes go 6-10 this year at best...hopefully that's enough to get Chilly and Tavaris fired so we can have a fighting chance.

    • What great fun on a 4-weight fly rod!!  Those are dandy panfish.
    •     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 slipping away I picked one out and shot him at 30 yards.  He'll taste good on the 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!
