The Shutdown 40: #37 Ryan Mallet

"We did look at Joe, and he’s a phenomenal talent. He’s a good kid. He did very well. I was glad that Brad (Childress) left him at the quarterback position," Reid said. "They were contemplating moving him to wide receiver and those types of things. I think he has a lot of talent and want-to to be a good football player at this level. Like any young quarterback, they develop and it takes time, so that’s what Brad did with him for this year. And now, it’s paid off. He had some great drives the other night, and you saw his ability to run, do the play-pass, the naked stuff—and he’s got an absolute gun of an arm." Andy Reid

The Vikings come to 2011 Senior Bowl in search of Quarterbacks


"We don't think we're that far away, but we have to get the right guy under center. Otherwise, we'll fall further behind people in our division. The two teams that played in the NFC Championship Game (Green Bay and Chicago) are from our division. That tells you we've got a tough division. We've got to get it right at quarterback, whether it be a veteran or a young guy." Coach Frazier
