Indications are that Brett Favre will play tonight at frozen, snowbound TCF Bank Stadium against his age-old rivals the Chicago Bears. But, if for some reason the plan changes and Favre is unable to go, don’t worry about the Vikings quarterbacks-wise. They have plenty of others to choose from.
There’s Joe Webb, who was going to start tonight until Favre intervened. Then there’s Patrick Ramsey who was signed last week to back-up Webb. Oh, and there’s also R.J. Archer, whom the Vikings activated from the practice squad to be their emergency third QB (you know, before Favre’s arm suddenly healed).
But wait, that’s not all. Today, the QB-rich (in numbers if not ability) Vikings also signed Rhett Bomar off the Giants‘ practice squad. The Newark Star-Ledger reports that Bomar is on his way to Minnesota this afternoon to join the Vikings. Cause he really likes snow.
No, you’re not imagining things: that’s five quarterbacks. I’m assuming they won’t all be active for tonight’s game, cause that would be totally screwed-up, but then again, these are the 2010 Vikings we’re talking about.
