Last week, I posted a thread on here about my hopes for Tarvaris Jackson to be the starting quarterback for the Vikings in 2011 (and beyond). The general consensus I was getting from the T-Jax "haters" is that we're better off starting fresh, he's not the QB of the future, and hell, he may go elsewhere next season since he's in a contract year right now.
That being said, obviously Joe Webb will be in his 2nd year and by no means ready to take snaps 16 games a year -- side note: if whoever we decide to put at QB next season doesn't work out, you'll see me posting another thread entitled "My Plug for J-Dub (Joe Webb) for Starter in 2012!" -- so clearly we need to fill QB spots next season.
Let me just clear up the fact that I am assuming Favre will FINALLY call it quits and, for the hell of it, let's say T-Jax goes elsewhere (my prediction, for the sake of the argument, is Jacksonville).
Let's play a game where we have to start a rookie. If you follow college football, you know who's out there. Andrew Luck (Stanford) is an underclassman but will most likely declare. Jake Locker (Washington) is currently battling injury, but many believe he is the most pro-ready QB in the game right now. A sleeper perhaps is Colin Kaepernick from Nevada; there's Christian Ponder from Florida State, Ryan Mallet... and the list goes on.
This thread, more or less, should center around the following: What rookie should start at quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings in 2011. I do not want to see Donovan McNabb's name anywhere in this thread or I will punch a baby. We're assuming our depth at QB next season is 1. __________ 2. Joe Webb 3. (a free agent clipboard-holder).
