The Vikings reportedly had a list of 8 quarterbacks they were looking at as candidates to fill in for injured Brett Favre and Tavaris Jackson. This list did not include fan favorites Daunte Culpepper or Jeff Garcia, nor did it feature former Vikings John David Booty and Brooks Bollinger.
It did reportedly include Patrick Ramsey, former Viking Todd Bouman and Luke McCown. In the end, the Vikings settled on Ramsey as the man to bring in.
Ramsey, who last threw an NFL pass in 2008, will have a few practices to now get up to speed with the offense. There is a chance, according to Leslie Frazier, that Ramsey will have to start Monday night. Frazier indicated that his preference would be to start Joe Webb, who is more familiar with the system, but Webb is himself battling a bad hamstring.
I’m guessing not many people, when they looked at the schedule before the season, figured the December 20th Vikings-Bears game would be played at TCF Bank Stadium with the Vikes out of the playoff picture and Patrick Ramsey at quarterback. But, that’s where we are.
