The Shaun Hill Era

The Vikings aren't going to add a third QB to their roster. Meaning it's only a matter of time until the Shaun Hill era begins. Our line couldn't keep Daunte, who can actually go faster than a brisk walk, from getting sacked 33 times. You have to give Steve Loney credit: he's gotten our linemen to master the "Lookout" block. So unless BJ's able to confuse the defenses by passing the ball off them to himself, he is going to get destroyed. If he survives this week, then I'm sure he'll spend a week having nightmares about this guy:

And if Strahan doesn't get him, then the Soviet Spy will get a chance to drive him into the Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field:

And for good measure, BJ has to survive Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs and Ed Reed on Christmas.

Heck, if the Vikings' luck continues, BJ AND Hill will get hurt in the same game. Wonder what would happen then? Smoot under center? [edit--turns out the answer is Koren Robinson. I'd rather see Smoot, or maybe Big Pat Williams under center though.]

I'll leave you with one last question to ponder: which period of quarterbacking excellence will Vikings' fans look back at more fondly, The Spergon Wynn Era, or The Shaun Hill Era?
