And I'll tell you why.
I haven't watched any of the Viking games this year, and I wouldn't be able to pick Tavaris Jackson out of a lineup any more than I could Tito Jackson. I just saw him for the first time the other night on local news station interview. I've heard and read a few things about him, but I've already drawn a conclusion, which is firmly based on historical precedents in the NFL.
No quarterback who could be considered the 'best athlete' on a football team has ever, nor will ever, lead their team to the superbowl. The teams that go to and win superbowls are the teams who have a 'quarterback' who can take 60 snaps in a game and make the best decision on about 90% of the plays and complete about 60-70% of the simple 10-15 yd pass plays.
From my observation, the 'best athlete' guys who they put into the qb position, they can make about 5 highlight reel plays a game and turn a 5 yard play into some big gain; but, then they make multiple bad decisions and can't complete the basic plays on a consistent basis over a 16 game schedule that makes a playoff champion. Some of them have come close, but it's never been done.
The second reason. When I saw him on tv, he was wearing a pair of dangling diamond earrings. I'm sorry, but Joe Montana, Terry Bradshaw, Roger Staubach, Bart Starr---none of them wore dangly diamond earrings.
I'm sorry Viking fans; but with a super athlete who wears dangly diamond earrings, we have no chance of seeing a super bowl as long as he's the starter. This is not based on race either....Doug Williams, Warren Moon, even Randall Cunningham (in his later years) were quarterbacks; not great athletes who they stuck in the qb position.
