Sage Rosenfels will start at quarterback in the Minnesota Vikings' preseason opener Friday night at Indianapolis, Vikings coach Brad Childress told KFAN radio Friday morning.

Rosenfels is competing with Tarvaris Jackson for the starting job, but Jackson sprained his left knee on the second day of training camp and is still not 100 percent. Jackson and John David Booty are expected to follow Rosenfels against the Colts.

The Vikings have given Rosenfels his first opportunity to win a starting job in his nine-year career

I do wish him luck, good luck to ALL former Texans. Hell, Jason Babin had a good game three tackles and a sack (I know, I know its the preseason but so what?)

Haha I saw Babin too, he looked like a man possessed out there. The Eagles' commentators were raving about him like he's some up and coming prospect. Herm Edwards was talking about his stint in KC and said he liked him a lot.

Sage should start over Tarvaris. That guy is horrible.

Sage does have the tools to be an NFL starter if he uses his head and does not try to be a hero good for him and good luck.

He is less like to NEED to play the hero when he knows that he is the starter from the beginning. He will be able to play to "get the job done" without needing to play to "stand out." I believe he can and will do a good job of getting the job done in Minnesota.

I figured out the secret to Sage: Play him in the first half only.

10-13 for 91 yards

Showed highlights, and he looked really good.

Threw a few 10 or 15-yarders, was in rhythm with his WRs.

At times Sage plays like he's ready for the Pro Bowl. Then the interceptions start ...

Tarvaris is being shopped......could be bringing Sage that much closer to starter status. LINK (http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikings/56794187.html?elr=KArksi8cyaiU9PmP:QiUiD3aPc:_Yyc: aULPQL7PQLanchO7DiUr)

Maybe I am a heartless Asshole with regards to Sage but I am indifferent to saying good luck to him. Just as I do not wish good luck to Jason Babin, Travis Johnson, or CC Brown. In fact at this point I can only think of one player whom I say I have hope he does well and that is Billy Miller.

I feel different. I've always liked Sage for some reason. I felt he was a servicable back up. I know he made a few boneheaded decisions, but that's why there's back ups and then there's starters. I felt better having him as a back up than anyone we have now in that role. Hopefully he'll get his chance, but it won't be this year behind Brett. I think he's a "lifer" at that role though, JMHO. I wouldn't mind having him back. :cool:
