Speaking of bombs...

Tarvaris Jackson just connected on a 50-yarder down the left sideline to Troy Williamson. The pass was well thrown and well defended by Cedric Griffin. But Williamson hauled in the ball and held onto the ball after hitting the ground.

What the? Did you say "hauled in the ball", as in he actually caught it? Really though, I hope all of Troy's hard work this summer pays off. It'd be neat to see a turnaround year for him. I may even take him in round 16 of my fantasy league if he's there.

Is Jackson progressing at all? I'm anticipating a lot of ups and downs this year, but it'd be nice if he keeps steadily improving. I think he can actually end up being a decent QB, but it's tough to expect much from a DII, near-rookie this year. Hopefully people lay off him when things go wrong. It's to be expected.

D2..?? Hopefully the Vikng faithful
will lay off YOU for being misinformed. The Vikings will go as T-jack goes.FYI: there is D1,-D1-A, D2, and D3. The Vikings would not trade UP in the 2nd rd. of the draft to get a D2 player. The Vikings passing game will do nothing BUT improve and a true Vikings fan is there regardless!

OK, so D1.5, I rounded up (or would that be down?)to two, ha ha, calm down. Alabama State plays many DII schools since they go against the SIAC conference teams frequently. I'm not too worried about his college division anyhow, since he was at least good enough to go to college as a Razorback.

I'm sure the passing game WILL improve, but the level it begins at this year on game 1 and there on out is the big question (and yes, I'll be there Mr. Superfan). Vince Young didn't exactly light the world on fire to begin with, and nor will Jackson. However, I don't read too much into last year's two starts, since he had very little time playing with the first team before actually getting those starts. I just hope the improvement starts coming sooner rather than much later.
