No decision has yet been made on which quarterback will start Friday night’s exhibition opener against the Colts, this according to Vikings offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.
“That’s not my job to come in here and tell you who the starting quarterback is,” Bevell told reporters. “Coach [Brad Childress] will tell you. We are in the process. We’re talking about it. Getting the exact reps with each and every guy, exactly how we want it to play out. I’m sure coach will tell you here pretty soon.”
Either Chilly will tell us or Bobby Wade will.
Just on the basis of number of practice reps, it seems Sage Rosenfels deserves the start. But, then again, Tarvaris Jackson did get injured, and that shouldn’t count against him in the battle for this almost completely meaningless honor.
One thing I know for sure? John David Booty will be finishing the game. And the guys blocking for him will be guys I’ve never heard of.
