He's better than Jackson. Of course, so's most team's 3rd stringers.

Re: In Gus we Trust

I wish the Skins played the late game so I could go to the Panthers/Vikes game sporting my old Gus jersey.

Nevermind, it's in Minnesota

Re: In Gus we Trust

I'm really not so sure that was a smart move. Starting Frerotte sooner and working in jackson as he progressed would have been smarter. Jackson has an upside, and Frerotte is on the decline and was never all that to start with.

7 teams in 15 years! There's something to be said about his longevity that's for sure.

Re: In Gus we Trust

Jackson isn't progressing much as a passer. I think the Vikes definitely have playoff potential if they can get some decent play at QB, and right now Jackson just can't get it done.

No question. I can't believe the guy is still in the league, much less that's he's going to be given a chance to start. At this point, I might actually be rooting for him (so long as his interests, of course, don't conflict with mine).

How about Brad Johnson in '99?

Re: In Gus we Trust

The Vikes invested too much money on upgrading this year's team to be held back by a still learning quarterback. While it's hard to imagine Gus being a guy who can take you to a Superbowl, it's also hard to imagine the offense being worse under him than it has been under Jackson. Also, Gus has played at times for them over the last few years and has been pretty effective.

Re: In Gus we Trust

Good to see Gus back. He's definately a good backup. Usually can come in a get a win here and there.

I too still have the dusty Frerotte #12 in the back side of the closet. Maybe he'll be a backup for us in a few years and i can break it out again.

Re: In Gus we Trust

Im honestly picking him up as my backup to play on Peyton's bye week. Don't be surprised when he puts up some decent fantasy points. Hecht I won my pay league last year with Kurt Warner, well LT helped a little. Hes not awful I mean he'll limit his mistakes and he can still chuck the ball pretty far.
