Those that know me know that I am a die hard Vikings fan. While I am as disappointed with the way the season is going as the next person, the blame is all shifting to the wrong people.

Yes, Brad Johnson has not had the best season, it has been dreadful. And yes he should have retired last year, like some other quarterback we all love to hate. But the fact of the matter is this is a team sport, there are 11 guys on each side, and it isn't just the quarterback that makes errors. There were plenty of missed blocks, dropped passes and lost plays. And that is just the offense! The quarterbacks always get to much credit when they are winning and to much grief when they are losing. It is a team sport...

As we go into tonight's game against Green Bay, Brad Childress is giving Tarvaris Jackson the chance to start, and risk the slim chance the team has at making the playoffs. The Vikings coaching staff needs to find out of they are going to be in the market for another quarterback, or if they are set for the 2007 season.

Kellyn,
At least both you and your husband are fans of the same team. My husband is a die hard Giants fan and I think our entire neighborhood knows what he thinks of them.
