QB Rosenfels Can Now Breathe with Favre Finally Gone

Vikings QB Sage Rosenfels has had to sit back and watch as the Brett Favre saga carried on. Here was Rosenfels, coming to the Vikings thinking he was going to get a shot to be a starter, but then having to watch this circus carry on. Now, Rosenfels is finally able to talk freely that Favre is gone for good.

“Yeah, this is some pretty interesting news today,” Vikings projected starting quarterback Sage Rosenfels(notes) said, less than two hours after he heard that Favre was going to remain retired. “But really, I’ve tried my best not to follow every turn of the story as it inched along. I know that’s your job, but my job is really to just prepare for the season … whether you’re the third or fourth guy or the guy who might start, you have to prepare the same.”

Rosenfels did a great job not showing his hand, and played it cool not showing that attitude to his teammates.

“I wasn’t going to sit around and talk about it because there wasn’t much to talk about. … This was a rare chance with a Hall of Fame player. I understood the situation. Now, it’s become one big non-story and it’s back to me and Tarvaris competing for the job.”

Now we will get to see that QB battle we thought we’d see from the moment that Sage was acquired in a deal with the Texans.
