    Other Vikings fans want him. I don't. He'd get the Vikings to the playoffs, but they won't ever win a SB with him. And for the record, I reallyenjoy watching Garcia play, but when it comes to my favorite team, forget him.

    Garcia > Jackson/Frerotte

    Jeff is better than what the Vikings have now... Garcia doesn't make many mistakes plus with the running game & the defense that would be a good fit.As they say all Garcia would have to do is "manage" the game...

    Garcia makes a lot of mistakes in crunch time because he has a gunslinger mentality.

    Minnesota just might. They have choices on the table, they just need to decide now. Garcia, Cassel, Vick, And a guy I like who I think they should make a runat is Matt Hasselbeck.

    ^ Yeah. You're right, but I'm saying as far as the options go, Garcia is lower on MY list. Which doesn't carry much water unfortunately. [​IMG]

    Ok...better than what we have but seriously? Rosenfels? We can do WAY better than that.

    I'm guessing if this deal gets done we won't go after any other QBs...which means a T-Jack/Rosenfels competition at camp [​IMG]

    4th-Rd pick plus cheaper contract for a player of Sage's ability >> Two 1st Rd Picks plus massive contract for a player of Cassel's ability.


    That's prob. how the Vikings are looking at it. They can afford the 4th Rd pick for sure. And for some reason they still think Jackson can be their man.

    Let's be real. There was going to be no perfect team scenario this offseason for that position. A move like this doesnt really surprise me. Childress gonnabe in for another long season either way which is good.

    Yeah, I can understand why we would make this trade because 4th rounders are so hit-and-miss...but I'm more upset that with other QB options that will beout there this off-season, THIS is what we could be going into 2009 with.

    I wanted Garcia but it doesn't look like that's going to work out now..

    By the way:

    I know, the Garcia play was one I was keeping an eye on. But as I mentioned in an earlier thread I didnt exactly see the Vikings going after him simply becausethey openly passed on him 2 years ago (and 2 years younger) when he was a free agent after filling in for McNabb and winning a playoff game and (just looked itup) throwing for 1,280 yards, 10 TDs and 2 INTs in the 6 season-ending games he came in relief for.

    Something wasn't right in their eyes and we've had zero indication they were ever going for him.

    Still, Garcia has thrown for a grand total of 12 interceptions in his last 33 starts...The Vikings, never taking any chances in the passing game planwhatsoever, have had 31 QB INTs just in the last 2 years.

    Sounds exactly like the "game manager" this team needs for just one season.

    [​IMG] It's the Vikings. Of course they would. Whatever they want I guess. Lord knows I'll be cheering no matter what. For TJ, Frerotte, Rosenfels,whoever. I just have this feeling that Minnesota will lose this beautifully open window they have and will go back to square one (No coach, no QB, stars wholeft elsewhere to win). And again I'll [​IMG] because that's the life of a Vikings fan.

    We'll see?

    Just wish they would ride with Tavaris. Feel bad for him, I just think he has talent.

    He has a lot of talent. So much potential, but Childress' neglience in handling his development has set him back to where I don't know if he canrecover, or if he'll get another great chance.

    I've watched Rosenfels fill in quite effectively for Schaub the past few years in Houston. Needless to say he made some costly mistakes last seasonincluding that late fumble but the guy is a solid QB and could help a team out.
