I took a look at the NFC North games last Sunday but thought it would be better to see what the SB Nation writers of each team's blogs thought about their respective wins (Chicago, Detroit) and loss (Minnesota).
Over at Pride of Detroit, it didn't look good but a win is a win:
It didn't go as well for Minnesota, and over at Daily Norseman, the conversation begins and ends with QB Tavaris Jackson:
What's even more unfortunate is that the Vikings, thanks to Brad Childress' infinite stubbornness and inability to evaluate the progress of his players, don't currently HAVE anything better at the quarterback position to turn to. There's absolutely no point in playing Kelly Holcomb right now. Kelly Holcomb is not the future of the Minnesota Vikings. Neither is Brooks Bollinger. Whether Tarvaris Jackson is the future of the Minnesota Vikings or not is, at least in theory, still the subject of some debate.
But the signs have not been encouraging. After playing an average game at Chicago (and I say that because he had a LOT of passes that bounced off of the hands of his receivers that made his numbers look much worse than he actually played), #7 absolutely stunk up the joint against Dallas yesterday afternoon. On the first drive, he completed passes on consecutive plays to Adrian Peterson (for 12 yards) and Chester Taylor (3 yards). He didn't complete another pass until the third quarter.
