New quarterback, same offensive mindset
By VikingTickets.com | Posted Tuesday, July 17
Mike Wobschall of Vikings.com reports that the Minnesota Vikings will most likely not experiment with a new offensive scheme now that the team has a new quarterback. Head coach Brad Childress will make tweaks to his offense merely in the play-calling realm. Many Vikings fans miss the days of the deep ball to Randy Moss in Minnesota, and with the lack of receiving talent the Vikings have today, the deep ball will probably not be in the Vikings arsenal again this season. If Tarvaris Jackson lands the starting quarterback job, his inexperience will probably encourage Childress to keep him on a short leash as far as improvisation goes, as Childress likes to run a conservative offense consisting of a healthy running game and short dump passes. However, Wobschall predicts that the Vikings may run more "rollouts, bootlegs and moving pockets" with Jackson as quarterback, perhaps making the Vikings "O" a little more fun to watch.
