Frerotte Sounds Off About Not Starting Sunday


Vikings QB Gus Frerotte wants to play and commented on Brad Childress’ decision to go with Tarvaris Jackson in Week 16 against Atlanta. Frerotte said, “It’s up to Coach. Obviously I’m not happy about it. I mean, anybody that’s competitive wants to be the guy that’s out there. I put a lot of hard work and a lot of effort into this. But it’s Coach’s.” Jackson fired four touchdown passes in last Sunday’s upset win over the Cardinals, and the team needs to evaluate whether he can be their franchise starter at quarterback, while the 37-year-old Frerotte is nearing the end of his career.

    What? Is there any hope that the old and the new can get on the same page. Maybe closing the generation gap in the Vikings locker room. However, Gus has a point. He lead this team to get to the position they are in, only to lose it to an injury and an incredible game by Jackson. How could you sit TJ after he was named NFC Offensive Player Of The Week. Childress, I will assume, likes his job. As for Gus and his comments, every true fan knows that players are competitive by nature and this should be expected. Even still, Jackson has been the golden child(ress) since coach drafted him. So, didn’t we understand the dynamics, the circumstances or the future of this situation. As if it were written in stone. I hope the future of the Vikings is TJ. He brings more athleticism and potential than gus ever has. Jackson has a stronger game period. Today was not his fault. WOW!!! Here we go. One game to clinch, one more to choke on? Come on Vikes, let some of the past go, pass the torch, be a team and win…just win.
