Childress Talks QBs

Posted by Mike Wobschall on July 26, 2010 – 2:07 pm

The Vikings QB situation – from the status of Brett Favre to the mystery that is Joe Webb – is at the forefront of Vikings chatter among fans as training camp quickly approaches. The Star Tribune’s Chip Scoggins has a few quotes from Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress regarding his QBs.

In regard to Favre, Childress told Scoggins that the 20-year veteran will need “two or three weeks” of time to prepare, an amount of time similar to what he had last season before guiding the team to a 12-4 record and throwing 33 TDs. The Vikings open the regular season with a game on Thursday, September 9 at New Orleans.

While Favre is away from the team, Childress told Scoggins that Tarvaris Jackson will get most of the reps with the 1st team and that Sage Rosenfels will also get a few look. Rookie Joe Webb will work primarily with the 3rd team.

    Without Favre there is no quarterback, the Vikings had better be in position to find one by trade or whomever – bottomline the Vikings know this and is the best reason that hew qwill probably be back to finish the job that was left undone.

    Favre is hurting this team more than helping them he should know by now if he wants to play or not. What I don’t get is why childress is not having authority to at least set a deadline or tell favre he needs to get on with the program. How is a coach suppose to carry a team to the superbowl with this laidback take your lifetime approach attitude.

    Ok we all know without farve we are likely a wild card team. So who is out there who could make us better no one so calm down farve will be back so no more trashing him. Next year we will likely get another old guy this time from seattle why because how many old guys have we had Cunningham, Moon, B.Johnson, Ferrotte, Holcolm, and now FARVE so more than likely we take another old guy.

    madden11, relax, last season favre arrived pre-season game #2 and look at the results. This season he knows the team. No need to show earlier.

    madden, get with the program. (I always wanted to tell madden that!) Everyone knows Favre is coming back, and everyone knows that he has an “unspoken” agreement with the entire team that he doesn’t have to appear at training camp. If this agreement didn’t exist then we’d just be going through another big retirement hoax to step around the training camp issues. Honestly, how can you blame the guy? Who would want to sleep in a squeaky worn out dormitory bunk-bed 5 feet away from another overgrown NFL athelete, after getting used to sharing an elaborate king-sized bed with your wife over the past 20 years?

    Most of the players that were on the team last year only need 2-4 weeks to be ready for the season so they should not have to show up till preseason just like OLD MAN Favre.

    Everybody knows Favre will be back, not only this season but next year too and their will be one more guy on the team that we use to all love returning to our great team Randy Moss! Can you say repeat, cause that is what we are going to do! Super Bolw here we come!!!

    I believe he will be back. He’s made the comment that he wants to beat the Saints and how sweet is it that that’s the first game of the season. It’s crazy to think of how he’s still in NFL shape at the age of 40. I think Childress is just letting him take it easy and let him get rested up for another great year!!

    Farve wants to play, he’s just using his ankle as reason to miss camp. No reason to worry, he’ll be here. If not, I think I might be the only T-Jack fan left, I have faith as long as our line keeps sacks to a minimum.

    My opinion, Chili hasn’t given T-Jack enough consecutive playing time to develop a rhythm. He’s pure talent and I think even the one year of having Favre around has sharpened his ability to read and react… and have faith in where his WR will be.

    Go Vikes!

    if farve don’t play for us.get someone.but not jackson.

    It is no secret Tjack is not a fan favorite, but he is a quality backup with playoff experience who continues to improve. His injurys and the conservative play calling didn’t help him win fan support. Shiancoe and Berrian took turns dropping the football in key situations that could have really help Jackson develope. Is he the QB of the future? Is his time running out? This topic makes for a great debate. This preseason might be his last opportunity to win the hearts of Viking fans.

    If vikes don’t make it to the superbowl the wilfs should fire childress a lot of good players on this team will be free agents next year. There should be no more excuses once favre comes back. Its funny how they had a chance for home field last year and they were in control and then suddenly hit the brakes and let the saints get home.

    As far as I am concerned we faithful vikings fans already know that our brett is coming back for several reasons…1 he is too much of a sportsman to let his career end the way it did last year and 2 we all know he wants that ring to complete his victorious and amazing career. I think he is waiting to pretty much psych the other teams out for this season since we all know they are stressing on the idea if they have favre to contend with yet again…..that is gonna end up being a major ace up our sleeve….admit it guys!!!

    yeah he had the ankle injury to deal with but who are we to decide if he deserves the extra time off? after all did any of you lead our team 12-4? one thing i know for sure about our favre is he is a amazing athelete and a pillar strength for our vikings and without him last year noone would have realized what an awesome team we really do have. even if he doesnt come back he showed the nation true Viking Power!!! give him a break and just SHOW YOUR HORNS!!!!! Wish our boys the best this year!!

    And dont forget everyone….. Favre helped everyone to realize how many weapons we really do have on our offensive and defensive sides….. I hope he comes back but even if he doesnt….we have all of our other boys that finally got to show thier skills last year thanks to having him understand the importance of the team…..and knowing how many amazing players we still have, Peterson, Shaincoe, Harvin, Allen, Rice….the list goes on and on!! the rest of the NFL finally see that the Vikings have what it takes to go all the way so lets just get ready for another amazing season!!!!

    Attention Vikings Offense: Rest assured our Mississippi brother, namely Brett Favre will be heading your way soon. On behalf of all Brett’s fans, relatives and friends here in South Mississippi, we have but one request. Please give Brett the PROTECTION that he so deserves during Game # 1 with the Saints. Brett needs to focus on his passing game and WINNING and not on how to defend himself from serious injuries. – Thanks – A Fan

    Farve will be back, and we will win the Super Bowl! He took some very hard hit’s last season, and kept on going! Like the “Engergized Bunny”, we’ll have the “Favrerator”! ! Go Vikings!

    all the Favre lovers are saying the same thing as last year that Favre will be here and take us to our 1st championship title. Favre cost us our chance last year with 3 turnovers in the NFC championship game. Hopefully Chilly learned how to run an offence and the play calling will be better, because of Favre..

    Personally I blame Chili for last years mess ups not Favre. We had all those offensive weapons and defensive weapons. But yet we did not go undefeated? What a bunch of Baloney….If Chili knew how to properly coach a team, we would be winning. But Vikings history also shows us that the team can get over-confident and lose a game they should have easily won.
    Several things IMO that need to be worked on:
    1) Protect the QB better, less hits/sacks longer the QB can survive
    2) Secondary needs to pick it up and hussle, knock the ball down more often, along with reading the QB & ball better
    3) Fire the Head Coach, and hire someone who is a real coach
