Pick a purple-headed quarterback

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

It doesn't matter to Brian Urlacher which quarterback Minnesota coach Brad Childress ultimately chooses for Sunday's game at Soldier Field.

Popular thinking is Tarvaris Jackson will get the call after missing the last two games with a groin injury. But he's not 100 percent, and that would take away from one of his greatest assets. Kelly Holcomb hardly shined when given his opportunity. The Vikings have gone as far as their running game has carried them.

A look at the two QB's:

Holcomb 35 completions 67 attempts 52.2 percent 1 TD 1 INT 9 sacks 70.9 rating
Jackson 30-56 329 yards 53.6 percent 1 TD 5 INT 1 sack 40.0 rating

Urlacher on the QB's:

"Holcomb’s a veteran guy, he’s been around for a while. He’s more safe with the football. Jackson’s more
athletic, runs around a little bit more, has a good arm -- a better arm than people give him credit for. They’re both getting the job done. They move the ball. They have a good running back, so that’s what they’re based on mostly is running the ball. They both get the ball out of their hands pretty quick.

IS TOUGH NOT KNOWING?

Not knowing what?

WHO WILL BE THE STARTER ON SUNDAY?

I don’t really care.

WILL IT CHANGE THE WAY YOU PLAY DEPENDING ON WHO IS STARTING?

No. I don’t. I play the same no matter what.
