Should be a nice healthy QB battle...

Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson found out that the team had acquired QB Sage Rosenfels about four days before the team officially announced the trade. The Star-Tribune reports that when Jackson heard the news, he was unfazed and actually looks forward to a little healthy competition.

ďIím still going to compete, and Iíll do exactly what I normally do,Ē he said. ďIíll do a lot better hopefully [than 2008]. Iím going to work hard. This might push me a little more but thatís what competition is all about. Iím not approaching this any differently than I did last year because I still went out and competed.Ē

battle shmattle. Rosenfels is the starter unless he screws it up.

What is funny is that it seems Javaris drove TJ Housh away from signing with Minny. Supposedly the Vikings brass brought in Jackson like he was the anointed starter and TJ pretty much said 'well, its been nice, but see ya'

i believe rosenfels had just been acquired or the deal hadn't been announced so during his visit it was Jackson's house.

Maybe TJ should get his Pilot's license.

I think Sage will win the job. I really don't expect Jackson to start.

If Sage loses out to TJ, then hes not who we thought he was!
