Jeff George a Viking??

19 posts in this topic

An article just came out today with Jeff George saying he wants to play for the Vikings. Here are a couple quotes....

“I’ve been trying to figure out how to get back in, and it just amazes me that I’m not on somebody’s roster,” George said. “I’ve been throwing two or three times a week, and every time I go out there to throw, I can’t believe I’m not a backup somewhere. I know it’s a young man’s game, but you can’t tell me I’m not better than some of the quarterbacks that are out there. I look at teams like Minnesota or Chicago, and I want to scream at the people in charge, ‘What are you thinking?’ ”

Yet the competitor in George can’t let it go, especially when he sees teams like the Vikings, for whom he put up huge numbers while going 8-2 as a starter in 1999, and the Cowboys, who struggled last season when Tony Romo missed several weeks with an injury and 40-year-old backup Brad Johnson was ineffective.

“If I was in Minnesota,” George said, “I guarantee I’d be wearing a ring right now. I just can’t get over why somebody like [coach] Brad Childress wouldn’t take a look at me and have me as the third guy on their roster. Put me in and I’ll pick up right where I left off in ’99, but this time with Adrian Peterson, so I wouldn’t have to throw it nearly as much.”

Yet when Childress, during the 2007 season, was asked if he had any interest in George, the coach was dismissive, saying, “Probably maybe [he could] go to a fantasy camp or something like that. ‘Downside’ would probably be, I think, kind.”

Does everyone see this as a joke, or would it be worth at least comparing him with the other two guys in training camp????

41 years old. He was not much of a mobile quarterback and sure wont be now. With the center position up in the air I think we are going to need a mobile quarterback.

With the new rule no lunging at the quarteback who knows.

He had a boatload of talent. Kind of a whiner though. If he could have kept his mouth shut he would have been a lot better off. The guy could really wing it though.

Not mobile, but accurate. He's like Gus, but can chuck the rock further. At least he used to be able to. We could bring CC out of retirement as well.

There's more spare quarterbacks in the league than George although he's no George Blanda. I'd think he doesn't have as much zip on the ball as he did eight years when he was blackballed.

every year Jeff is saying that he should be on someone's team, and almost every year he throws out the Vikings name, at least that is how I see him. I think if he was still that good/valuable, he'd have been in the league the last few years. Wasn't it about 3 years ago he was Chicago's 3rd string QB?

I don't think he's been selling that, I thought it was the wizinator.

I watched Mike & Mike in the morning and they had a thing that Jeff George said that he would have a superbowl ring if the vikings would have picked him up.

    • I have seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets.

Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
