..T-Jack's inability to recognize an eight and nine man D-front and dump off to slot receivers should get just a bit of the blame as well. If that would have happened, O-linemen wouldn't have had to block 2 guys the whole game.

But when you have questionable ball-catching skill in the slot and at tight end what do you expect? T-Jack could make the perfect read/pass every time but if Shiancoe/Wade insist on putting the ball on the rug, it makes the whole thing an exercise in futility.

It takes a real player to now and say his faults. I am happy that we have Peterson.

Maybe an inspiration for all of the losers constantly assailing Jackson. Maybe inspiration for the poor Packer fans.....no wait. Too much to hope for.

would bad mouth T-Jack in an article about how Peterson is aiming to improve. Last I checked T-Jack has a winning record. It's waaaaaay to early to tell what kind of career T-Jack is going to have.

On Jackson, you'd think he completed less than 50% of his passes and was the starting QB on a team that went 0-16. Never before has a Quarterback with less than 20 starts in his career been so degraded by so called fans. The word idots being used to describe these people is an insult to idiots.

Why do they have it so rough in Minnesota? I'm white and moved here 3 years ago. All I hear is how bad Culpepper and T-Jack are, but when I lived out of state Culpepper was regarded as an elite QB. Hmmm....

So rare in football, particularly Vikings players, to show such class and introspection. Can't wait to see what he has in store for us this year!
