Jackson to take bulk of reps, Childress not interested in George

Tarvaris Jackson is apparently ready to return to the starting lineup.

Vikings coach Brad Childress indicated Jackson looked "significantly different" from a week ago, when his broken finger was swollen and more of a problem.

"I expect him to knock the rust off here and take the lion’s share of the reps," Childress said of Jackson.

In regards to veteran Jeff George's interest, Childress said, "He did not contact me."

Asked his thoughts on a veteran expressing interest, Childress said, (he should) "probably, maybe go to a fantasy camp or something like that. You know?

"Downside (of his career) would probably be kind," Childress concluded.

In other news, Childress said WR Troy Williamson is attending a funeral and WR Bobby Wade would not practice in the afternoon.

Of course, why look at anything else? What we currently have is working so well. Where is Jake Plummer these days?

Maybe Childress should attend Fantasy Camp, speaking of the downside of a career (what a nightmare!!!!)Wasn't Mike Tice 9-7 in his last season???? Can we say 3-13 this season if were lucky.

Childress is like school in summer, no class. How much longer do we have to deal with this joker?

Plummer and Bledsoe don't want to come back.

However, Childress could have easily said that usual coach line "we're happy with who we have in the building" and moved on.

He really doesn't understand dealing with the media. That would be fine if he were actually winning games. . .
