I’ve said it before, but I really enjoy Bleacher Report.
An article popped up yesterday that caught my attention.
I’ve been on vacation for a while here. But there is nothing that will bring a writer off vacation faster than the speculation by Vikings writer Judd Zulgad that if Favre is in, Tarvaris Jackson is out.
Jackson out? Are you kidding me? Tarvaris has been the model citizen and has taken everything that the Vikings’ boring offensive coordinators have thrown at him in his development. Yes, Sage Rosenfels was brought in to compete. But Rosenfel’s has—what?—seven career starts in a nine-year career with three different teams?

Basically I agree with the main point of the article. If Favre comes in, I think the Vikings need to cut the loss of their 4th round pick and part ways with Sage. Has Jackson been great? No. Not at all. But he’s learned from the most boring coach and OC in the NFL, and the only veterans he’s had to learn from in his career are Brad Johnson, Brooks Bollinger, Kelly Holcomb, and Gus Frerotte. He’s a great athlete who needs to sit under a good QB. Let him learn under Favre for a couple of years.
Rosenfels, on the other hand, is entering his 10th season as a pro. Say Favre comes in and stays 2 seasons. Do we really want to rely on a guy when Favre leaves that hasn’t had a starting job for 11 years in the NFL?
Instead, hang on to Jackson and Booty, and let them learn.
