He looked solid tonight vs the Steelers. Looks like the future in Minny.

Well there isn't anybody ahead of him so I would say the future QB position is all his. I still think Minny handled the Culpepper situation badly and would be better off with him, not that I'm complaining at how it turned out. :tongue:

He is in a diffrent coaching situation. So it wont be another "situation".

Just did some research on the kid.

Tavaris Jackson - 2nd round pick, 64th overall in the 2006 draft. Alot criticized Brad Childress saying he REACHED big time for Tavaris Jackson; most say Tavaris would have been available in the 3rd or even 4th round. First Division I-AA player drafted in the 2006 draft. Tavaris even felt being drafted in the 3rd round would have been a stretch, so being picked 64th overall must have really shocked him.

Tavaris average NFL.com grades are 6.0, which is the minimum for a legitimate NFL starter.

Mike Tirico refered to Tavaris as a right handed version of Michael Vick on the Monday Night Football game vs the Raiders.

Brad Childress is a pretty good quarterback coach, we all seen what he did with Donovan McNabb. Who knows, this may have been a steal.

Check out his stats, and if you've seen him play he appears to be the real deal. Good composure. Surprising since he came from a DII school. He could be ready to start as early os 2007.
