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.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
