A lot of people want to know my opinion on pretty much everything, especially when it comes to important things like the meaning of life, how many pieces of bacon is too many, and where did I leave my keys*. When Jay Cutler was traded to the Bears this week for 2 First Round Picks, a Third Rounder, and Dave Grohl's illegitimate brother Kyle Orton, people were bombarding me with questions like: Why Didn't the Vikings get him? Why didn't they at least try and get him? Why is Brad Childress still their coach? Why are they AGAIN taking a Super Bowl caliber roster into the season with two backups-at-best at the quarterback position?
All I can say in response to all of these questions is the above picture. I have no explanation for what has happened this offseason in Minnesota, presumably Zygi Wilf has been more affected by the economy than anyone that does not reside in the town of South Park. I am really at a loss for words about the whole thing, which again is why I let the picture do the talking, and just to be fair let's get the AP caption in there to put it into its proper context.
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Tavaris Jackson loses his helmet and can only watch after St. Louis Rams' Ron Bartell intercepted a pass in second quarter of a NFL football game
The other part worth adding in here, even though the Vikings major move this offseason, besides losing multiple Pro Bowl center Matt Birk, was acquiring career backup-at-best Sage Rosenfels, Childress insisted this week that there will be an open quarterback competition in camp. And although Tavaris has proven he lacks the leadership qualities, let alone skill set, to be an NFL starting QB, John Clayton (who unlike Childress has no reason to lie) reported this week that it appears the starting QB for the 2009 Minnesota Vikings will indeed be Tavaris "Throw The Ball Up In The Air To Anyone In Particular Without Any Accuracy Whatsoever" Jackson. Somebody governate me please.
