Vikings Shiancoe: Nothing Will Change On Offense Without Favre

Tarvaris Jackson: also known as The Answer

Minnesota Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe thinks the team’s offense will be the same whether it’s Brett Favre or Tarvaris Jackson behind center.

That’s right, the wunderkind Tarvaris Jackson.

I about shit myself, before laughing hysterically, when I read that statement.

OK, so maybe Shiancoe didn’t say exactly that, but he did say this.

“Nothing will change in our offensive approach if it’s Tarvaris,” Shiancoe said. “He has done a lot of growing up over the past year, getting more comfortable while learning, watching. Having Favre ahead of him was a blessing in that sense. His development has been overshadowed because he’s now doing it behind the scenes. If it turns out he’ll need to “re-debut,” he’ll be ready.”

Yeah…

Hey, we all know Favre will eventually stop pretending he doesn’t know if he’s going to play this year and show up at Vikings training camp, so Shiancoe’s comment doesn’t really matter.

But let’s say Favre’s foot gets run over by a lawn mower in the next month and he’s forced to spend the winter in Mississippi. I’m totally for that scenario, by the way.

The Vikings may think they can run the same offense with Tarvaris Jackson, and I’d love to see them try, but they can’t.

With Favre, the Vikings became a passing team, after being a running team with Jackson under center. There’s good reason for that. Favre can make more throws than Jackson, he’s more experienced and he’s smarter.

The last time I remember Tarvaris Jackson throwing a football… hahahahahahahahahaha!

So go ahead Minnesota, run the same offense with Tarvaris Jackson and let’s see how that works out.

In Shiancoe’s defense, he obviously isn’t real bright.

In the interview above he used the phrase “he say, she say.” I think the phrase you were looking for is “he said, she said,” you fucking moron.

    If they’re equivalent, I can think of 12 million reasons why Jackson should start and Brent should but cut. It’s pure idiocy.

    look who’s calling someone else a “fucking moron”. this from the authors of the post who talked about their QB (A. Rodgers) “banging” reporter Erin Andrews. listen dudes, i’m all for doin’ your thing and running your website the way you wanna run it….fine. but to call others out on the way they talk? right….

    Good god, you’re still here? Jesus, you must live a sad life.

    Anywho, yea I don’t think Shiancoe is all that smart (As evidenced by his little twitter fight). At least he can compensate for that with his modest (By NFL standard) paychecks and his monster dong.

    with a name like Visanthe Shiancoe, you can’t go wrong!!

    So you have a problem with A-Rod banging beautiful women?

    Its all fine when a site reports negative shit (underwood buying sex) but when we get a feel good article like that you don’t wanna hear it..LOL. Please the webmasters of this website have said time and time again this website is a bit more hardcore from about page

    “Total Packers doesn’t pull any punches. We are outspoken. We are entertaining.”

    Move your futile fight to http://www.greenbaypressgazette.com/ its more your speed

  10. jeff ircink June 25, 2010

    i don’t have a problem with any guy banging any beautiful woman, PackerFanINFL. did i say that? and you don’t have to sell me on how “Total Packers” pulls no punches. you guys are hardcore, man. but for anyone who writes and comments on this site to then criticize someone else as being a “fucking moron” – i mean, “pot calling the black?”…

  11. jeff ircink June 25, 2010

    oh…and “more my speed”? please, none of you could ever keep up with “my speed”.

  12. Al Borland's Beard June 26, 2010

  13. jeff ircink June 27, 2010

  14. jeff ircink June 27, 2010

    “sad life”? no, ABB. quite happy actually. the only sad part iof my life is reading the bile that some of you guys write.

  15. matt fox June 28, 2010

    I’m not in love with Visanthe Shiancoe (although he does have a sweet name) but i think you guys might be purposefully misunderstanding or misconstruing what he said. (how very fox newsy of you) He said their “offensive approach” wouldn’t change, he didnt say their offensive level would be the same. However, you’ll be glad to know my expectation for this site haven’t changed a bit!

  16. jeff ircink June 28, 2010

    wait a second. why is it that when Favre joined the Vikes everyone and their mother said the Vikes were a playoff caliber team with or without Favre as Tavaris got them to the playoffs the year before – but when Shiancoe makes this comment now he’s a moron?

  17. jeff ircink June 28, 2010

    you’re right, matt. quite Fox newish of this site. they even said it in the opening paragraph…”OK, so maybe Shiancoe didn’t say exactly that, but he did say this.” how droll….and if you ever shit yourself, Monty, post a picture. THAT would be a site to see.

  18. jeff ircink June 28, 2010

    so this post is basically a non-story. it’s irrelevant because what Shiancoe said was nothing what Monty alluded to. non-story. period.
