I have always thought that Tarvaris was where third downs went to die but after 6 quarters I’m patiently optimistic. I’m not sure if we’ve been witness to a turning point in the season and career of Tarvaris or yet another Minnesota sports build’em up only to tear them down. I’m hopeful but resistant to say T-Jack has learned anything in his time riding the much needed pine.
For me the best throw of the week is a toss-up between his shoulder fake on the Wade TD and the Iraqi guy throwing his shoe at Bush. I couldn’t have been more suprised Sunday by a 4 TD performance out of Jackson if my dog had greeted me after his morning glory by speaking Spanish. 4 TD’s?!?! Are you kidding me?! But to be fair his success was against Detroilet and Arizona. Atlanta is a little bit more of a test so let’s hope this is for real and clinch a week early to give everybody a week off to heal up that needs it.
I would be remiss if I didn’t address the 99 championship game. I still shake almost uncontrollably when I see Vikings vs. Falcons but who can blame me? I really hope Jared Allen hits Matt Ryan so hard Morten Anderson’s mother has heart problems.
