Rosenfels Falls Further Than Expected

In an earlier post, I talked about how the Vikings quarterbacks (not counting Brett Favre, who was absent from minicamp) stacked up against each other this weekend.  Here is my ammended depth chart for the position:

1.  Tarvaris Jackson

2.  Joe Webb

3.  R.J. Archer

4.  Sage Rosenfels

That’s right, according to Judd Zulgad of Access Vikings, Archer actually scooped up the remaining reps with the third team while Rosenfels sat idle. 

“Just rotating him around a little bit,” said Brad Childress.  “We try to expose all those guys to all situations and it wouldn’t be uncommon for you to see here or in training camp where you’re trying to expose two quarterbacks and shutting [another] guy down for a day. I really wouldn’t make anything of that other than we were tryng to expose those other three quarterbacks to some of that red area stuff and some of that blitz stuff yesterday.”

While Childress and Bevell may just be trying to get a good look at their young guys, there is no doubt that Jackson is still considered the superior quarterback to Rosenfels.

    “We try to expose all those guys to all situations …”

    so that explains what Dwight Smith was doing in that stairwell back in 2007, it was an OTA drill

    almost forgot, welcome back Adam!

    at least the Vikings don’t have a problem child like Vince Young at QB, he got arrested last night for assault

    haha beat me too it! i’ve been in the pool all day (like 15+ straight days of over 100 degrees here) but was just about to post this story myself!

    gotta say, I hope 2 things from this

    1) we can get at least SOME comp. for Sage, because he is obviously out…
    2) Webb must really being showing some talent

    Sports Illustrated is reporting a report from the Vikings listing the latest QB depth chart from the team:

    1. Tarvaris Jackson

    2. ” Jumpin’ ” Joe Webb

    3. R.J. Archer

    4. Ryan Cook

    5. Pat Williams

    6. Kent Hrbek

    7. Sid Hartmann

    8. Bob Barker

    9. Ellen the Lesbian

    10. Sage Rosenfels

    11. Daunte Culpepper

    At lease Sage isn’t last on the depth chart.

    is Ellen the Lesbian gonna try to buy Jared Allen’s number?
