  1. New Vikings offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave insists that he’s “been impressed” with QB Joe Webb.

    Coached many QBs
    Musgrave has coached no less than nine quarterbacks in the NFL.

    “I’ve been lucky to be in the right place at the right time in a bunch of instances,” he said. “I’ve been able to coach guys at the end of the career, like Steve Beuerlein, and also guys at the beginning of their career, like Matt Ryan. I’ve really enjoyed it. The quarterback position is fun because those guys are sharp and they’re very, very competitive.

    “I started with Jeff George years ago with the Oakland Raiders. I already mentioned Steve Beuerlein. Rodney Peete, of course; Koy Detmer there in Philadelphia for a time. Byron Leftwich, Mark Brunell, David Garrard, had a good time with Patrick Ramsey there with the Washington Redskins along with Mark Brunell.

    No offense, but with the guys that Musgrave has been around over the years, wouldn’t pretty much any quarterback on a current NFL roster seem “impressive”…? Look at that list of proven NFL studs. Yikes….I pity the Vikes.
