Brad Childress has chosen Sage Rosenfels to start the first game of the exhibition season Friday night against the Colts. Prior statements by Chilly lead us to believe that Tarvaris Jackson will start game 2 regardless of how Sage looks in game 1.
Sage will have one huge advantage against Indy: the Colts have elected to bench their entire starting secondary for the whole game. So, if Sage doesn’t pick Indy apart, or at least look really good against them…it will not reflect well on him.
In other good news for Sage and T-Jack’s fragile psyches: the Philadelphia Eagles have signed Michael Vick to a two-year contract, officially bringing to a close all the silly Vick-to-Vikings chatter. Now maybe we can talk exclusively about the players on our own team instead of wasting our time in mindless speculation about every unsigned quarterback in the universe?
