I'd take Jackson back if he wanted to return. Jackson and Ponder really arent that far apart in there development and Jackson would clearly be a better backup option than Webb.

I have no idea why, but as soon as I saw this I immediately thought of this...

Absolutely not. You're talking about a guy that lost out to Russell Wilson, Matt Flynn, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Vince Young. If he can't pass any of those guys, as bad as Joe Webb looked, I wouldn't count on Tarvaris passing him either.

Michael Jackson went from such a wholesome middle America kind of image to his bizarre, hideous life and early death.

Tarvaris Jackson is like a lateral move from Mark Sanchez.

The Jets should not pursue him.

I kind of wouldn't be surprised if he came back to Minnesota as the primary backup. I don't know how I feel about that anymore. :/

Fitzpatrick and Wilson arent terrible QBs.

Fitzpatrick, Flynn and Jackson would all be significant upgrades over Jackson. I think the Vikes would be foolish to even consider bringing back Webb as the #2. Looking at Jackson's two years in Minnesota as the starter and his one year in Seattle as the starter, what separates him from Christian Ponder? There isnt much honestly, but I do know there is a significant gap between Webb vs Ponder/Jackson.

I do not see Jackson coming back unless Brad becomes head coach again

Still, the Jets do want someone who can compete with Sanchez. So who might that be? Schefter says new Jets G.M. John Idzik has always been a believer in Tarvaris Jackson, who was the Seahawks’ starter in 2011 while Idzik was Seattle’s V.P. of football administration.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/01/20/jets-unlikely-to-add-michael-vick-may-target-tarvaris-jackson/

oh my goodness, a competition between Sanchez and Tarvaris?

those poor Jets fans, if that's the best they have to look forward to...

They would just be competing for who can best keep the seat warm for the QB that we draft.

Fitzpatrick's numbers aren't all that dissimilar from Ponder

Fitzpatrick - 306-505, 3400 yds, 24 TDs, 16 INTs, 83.3
Ponder - 300-483, 2935 yds, 18 TDs, 12 INTs, 81.2

To suggest that Tarvaris and Ponder are anything alike is a preposterous statement. Tarvaris and Joe Webb are closer than Tarvaris and Ponder.

Jackson's season in 2011 as a starter in Seattle was actually slightly better than Ponder's last year. More yards, much better yds/att, and he still managed to throw for 60%.

Granted Jackson is a bit older, I dont think going from Ponder to Jackson will be nearly as disasterous as going from Ponder to Webb. Jackson is a clear upgrade over Webb, but I would put Jackson closer to Ponder than I would Webb. Webb is atrocious. Jackson was serviceable in 2011 just like Ponder was this year.

One of the biggest challenges for a rookie head coach is building a solid coaching staff, but Browns coach Rob Chudzinski continues to acccumulate good help.

According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Browns have hired former Cowboys defensive line coach Brian Baker to coach outside linebackers.


http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/01/24/browns-add-another-veteran-assistant-in-brian-baker/

In case people don't remember, Baker was a DL and LB coach for the Vikings under Tice.

Quote:
Smoot told the Capitol Police officer that he’d had one drink, according to the affidavit, and agreed to a field sobriety test. During a series of tests, Smoot demonstrated “many clues of impairment,” including swaying noticeably, Carll said in the affidavit.

“During processing, in the service area, while handcuffed, the [defendant] peed his pants creating a puddle on the floor,” Carll said in the affidavit. “[A police officer] witnessed the urine running down his pant leg and onto the floor. [Smoot] did not express that he had to use the restroom.”

SMOOOOTTTT!

Laughing

What a sorry excuse of a CB he was for the Vikings. And one of the primary Love Boat idiots. It shouldn't come as a surprise that he'd do something ridiculous like this.
