We should know better. Every year writers that cover the sport write about how meaningless the preseason is. Every year we get evidence of teams playing well in the preseason and sucking in the regular season, and sucking in the preseason but doing fine in the regular season. It doesn't matter. But we're so desperate for football, we let ourselves get nervous or excited based on these meaningless performances.
I don't know what anything means right now about anything. I'm happy that Tarvaris Jackson doesn't look completely inept, which he did a lot of the time last season; he at least seems poised and understanding. But it's still meaningless. Vanity of vanities, striving after the wind and all that.
But since the Vikes do have an inexperienced QB, Viking fans do want to know how our hero, Tarvaris Jackson, does. We'll see week one against Atlanta. But if you are interested, the Star Tribune has a couple of articles on Jackson's recent preseason performance: "QB's long outing doesn't provide much clarity" and "Jackson takes small step up, but Bollinger goes backward."
Viking Update says Kelly Holcomb might be coming to the Vikings.
Remember when some Viking fans were upset that the Vikes let Jermaine Wiggins go? Mike Morris called Wiggins a top-10 tight end, which caused me to go slightly crazy. Well now Wiggins has been cut by the Jaguars (Vikings Now). Folks, he's an 8 yard per catch TE, and there are plenty of them in the league.
I like sports. You like sports. But sometimes we just need to laugh out loud. Thanks to Ballhype for bringing this Youtube instant legend to our attention.
