Sid Hartman: Holcomb has a chance to win quarterback job if he does well (http://www.startribune.com/507/story/1506526.html)

If he starts, as expected, Sunday against the Eagles, the Vikings' backup passer feels he will have an edge playing against his former teammates because of his insights.

Quarterback Kelly Holcomb, who was traded to the Vikings on Aug. 27 after spending all of training camp with the Eagles, said it will be a big advantage for him if he gets to start Sunday's game against Philadelphia....

I don't think he will take the job away from T-Jack, but just may allow Tarvaris time to heal copletely. I hope he plays well with his opportunities, but this is TJ's year to develope and grow. Hopefully we can get a healthy TJ for the second half of the season.

Im wondering if all the excuses so far for Tjack will apply for K H. I hope he does well and I hope there wont be excuses for him...If he goes out and throws for 200-250 with 1 pick that is actually top 5 for a2007 nfl QB....ok so if he goes out and throws 200 and 1 pick thats top10 in nfl we should be happy...I just hope all the TJ fans around here can accept it if KH goes out and wins with a average performance Not great... just get some of the heat off of the running game by completing a drive by mixing it up and completing a 3rd and 6 a 3rd and 12

I think that most of us on here who realize the challenges a young QB will have in his first year, especially when he is rushed a bit, won't hold it against either one if KH has a good game.

In fact, most of us expect the team to do better with KH in there especially now that he has had time to digest some more of the playbook and get comfortable with the coaches and other players.

The Chilly one has less confidence in the Jedi rite now, I don´t think TJ would start vs SD If Holcomb has a good game next Sunday.I am just seeing Childress saying in the next week press conferences that TJ is not 100 % and It is better for him to rest the next week and all that great stuff ....(I think this man would have to improve his lies)...

It really depends. If Holcomb sets the world on fire and plays a stellar game then I say start him the next week. Now I really doubt that happens so seeing that the season is a wash anyways,
I would go with Jackson so there's no question what we at quarterback for next season and going into the draft. Maybe we even see some improvement from him.

I would have, but I want TJ in there every snap this year so at the end of the season we have a good record of where he is and what we can expect from him. Sitting him now either delays his development or his replacement.


Amen.
Amen.
Hail and Amen.


Praise Purple Jesus.
