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

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.

    •   Yep, am with ya......and most of us thank you. Should not be a difficult concept to understand.....except for a select Jv few.
    • So was I.  When I say "my equipment" won't be freezing up when I am hole hopping with the aid of my toasty warm Otter cottage, part of my equipment that won't be freezing up would be the ez ducer...   
    • Reinhardt was sincere, and I don't believe he was trying to sell anything,  He had a lot of knowledge about meat, and simply wanted to share it.   I didn't fault him for his politics, either.  He was simply misguided on that....        
    • I took Mickey in 2008. Bubbles 4 years later. Not too worried about winning as some on here .....as winning in  those years wasn't really winning, and so far, neither is picking the winner in 16, other than saying you picked the winner and "get it".
    • Had an opportunity to tag along with LeeKen to Bluestem Nature Conservancy and sit in a blind Saturday morning.  Thought it was unusual to see a deer with antlers late March.
    •     I was thinking more like Goofy=Pres. Trump
    • Murphy’s Law   I went out this afternoon trout fishing.  I questioned the wisdom of fishing on a robin’s egg blue sky day.  Trout shun sunlight.  I went outside to check the weather. The warmth of the afternoon coaxed me out of the house.     I fished a stretch I have done well on in the past.  I knew because of the bright sun I would more than likely not do well on big trout this outing.  Trout do not have eye lids and shun bright sun. When I got to the stream the outdoor temperature was 58 degrees.  I took the water temperature and it was almost 50 degrees.  That is well within a good temperature range to score some trout.     I hit the water at 2:45pm.  The sun was high in the sky and not a single cloud was in the sky.  I knew from experience that days like these I typically fished the shaded side of the stream.  There was no shaded side of the stream.      The fishing was tough.  I had lots of follows and flashes at my lure.  None seemed to want to commit.   I decided to look for cover for the trout.  I decided anything to throw a little shade on the trout would make them feel comfortable.     The trout had lock jaw.  I decided to target broken water so the trout would feel secure and come out in the bright light.  They still were bashful.  I decided another trick was in order. I was going to throw in the biggest snarly messes and let the lure drop to the bottom and give it a tweak to start the blade going.  Bang bang and I was in business.  This only worked in deep runs and i lost a few lures throwing into the mess.     I ended the outing with 24 brown trout to hand. The biggest was about 16 inches.  It was 5:30pm.  I usually get out at a bridge and today was nothing different.  I stood on the bridge looking upstream.  There was a sweet log jam just upstream of the bridge and it was in shadows.     I decided i was going to go just upstream in the shadows and cast a few more times. I was still on the bridge looking upstream. I looked at my reel and there was a loop on the spool.  This loop needed to be cast out if I was going to continue fishing.  I decided the bridge afforded the best angle and no trees in the way to cast out the loop in my spool.     I cast off the bridge.  The loop caught and dropped my cast about 15 yards upstream.  It nearly didn't land in the water.  It hit tight to the bank and I had a big snarl in my reel.  I looked down and saw my panther martin was barely in the water.  I decided to pull off some line and get this snarl out.  I made even a bigger mess.     I sat down on the bridge rail and started to mess with my giant snarl.  I again looked at my lure and it was barely in the water.  I was worried about losing the lure because of the snarl.  It was safe and barely dangling in the water.     I  really made a mess with the reel.  I was cussing it and trying to untangle it.  I lost focus on my lure in the water. I was peering over my glasses and really putting all my attention on this mess and I heard a splash sound.  I looked upstream and saw nothing.  I looked back at the reel.  I heard a louder splash and looked over the bridge at my lure suspended in the water.     My mouth dropped open wide and I stared in disbelief.  Me messing with the line caused the lure to jig up and down in the water.  This attracted a predator.  Not 2 inches from my lure was a giant trout suspended and staring at the size 9 gold panther martin deluxe waiting for it to move again.     My reel was still messed up so there was no battling this huge female trout on my reel if it decided to quit dancing with my panther martin and eat it. The bridge was at least 15 feet off the water and the idea of battling a monster trout from above was not appealing.  I worked frantically on the snarl.  It got even more messed up.     My fighting with this reel and keeping one eye on the giant female was nerve racking.  She still was very interested in my lure.  She circled it like a shark.  It was more than I could stand.  I decided if I hooked up with her with this less than optimal circumstances I would lose her and maybe kill her because of the bridge nonsense.     I decided to try to catch her another day.  The reel was non functional and i grabbed the line and lifted the lure out of the water.  What happened next is going to be relived in my dreams for the rest of my life.  The monstrous female brown bum rushed the lure as I lifted it out of the water.  It launched itself out of the water snapping at the spinner.  It was a swing and a miss. I got my wits back together and thought about cutting out the snarl and trying for her. I decided a return trip was on the agenda.  As I write this recollection I smile and cuss my circumstances.
