The Favre saga is finally over for the Vikings. He's done with and even he knows it.

While many Vikings' fans may not be very happy with the outcome of his decision, I think we are all happy that it's finally over.

We have to more forward with what we have: Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels.

While the two may not be the typical glamour quarterback that every NFL team wants, they are serviceable.

Jackson has gotten better every season so far and had an incredible four game span to end the season in 2008 included a four touchdown performance that earned him Offensive Player of the Week honors.

I guess what's bugging me more than anything are all these articles stating that we should go after Michael Vick.

We already have that in Tarvaris Jackson. Jackson makes better decisions throwing the ball and has a higher completion percentage than Vick.

He may not be as fast as Vick, but we don't need another running back at quarterback.

I've even heard of people saying that we should make a play for Jason Campbell come next season.

Well folks, that's next season. We have to work with what we've got.

We haven't seen anything from Rosenfels. Let's not count him out of the equation here. He had some pretty solid games for the Texans.

Of course he's most famous for his helicopter spin that ultimately cost the Texans the game against the Colts, but you shouldn't have to worry about another play like that. I think he learned his lesson the hard way there.

The time to win doesn't have to be right now like so many of you fans think.

Our players aren't ancient and falling apart. Pat Williams is 36 and the next oldest player is 31 and that's an offensive lineman. Offensive lineman can still play for another six years after that and not lose much.

We have great young talent all around and plenty of time to develop new ones.

If we have to draft a rookie quarterback next season, so be it. I wouldn't be against it unless one of our quarterbacks goes on a hot streak and takes the NFL by storm.

I don't want to see a Michael Vick in purple just so we can run the "Wildcat" that was so popular a year ago. We don't need that offense. It only worked for a small portion of last season anyway.

For now, give your support to the players we have. They have the talent around them to succeed.

The addition of Phil Loadholt will be huge. It gives us a true tackle instead of a backup center trying to fill the void.

Percy Harvin should do enough to dazzle us fans to forget about our problems at the quarterback position.

Just remember, there are worse teams out there with far worse problems than the Vikings face.
