At no point in the last 11 games has Frerotte lit the world on fire (well, there's one possible exception), but he hasn't been asked to. With the way the Vikings have played on defense, especially up front, and the way Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor have been running, no quarterback has to light the world on fire, or even play wonderfully. Just don't screw it up.
Meanwhile, Jackson's most effective work this season (until this past Sunday), has come doing what he's doing in the photo to the right.
The Vikings are 8-3 since they made the switch, and it's clear they are winning games the way they should be. Sound, physical defense, and a two-headed monster running the ball that's better than anyone in the NFL. Frerotte throws just enough to make defenses play straight-up, and that's all Peterson and Taylor really need.
Things are changing, however.
