It Needed To Be Done

News Item: Vikings release Brad Johnson

It's not a surprise and it had to be done. Johnson is like many, many quarterbacks in the NFL: He's shown flashes of brilliance in his career, and also flashes of mediocrity, with a season seldom going by in which he doesn't show both. In other words, there's a reason he's been with five different teams.

As a middling QB, Johnson is no different at all from Brian Griese, Jake Plummer, Rex Grossman, Trent Dilfer and (yes) both A.J. Feeley and Jeff Garcia. The Vikings, in choosing a QB for '07, would be wise to avoid all of the above.
