Default Backup QB situation

How do you guys/gals feel about this? Based on what I've read Dan O. isn't coming along like we'd like and Booty isn't either. What you guys think about this position?

EDIT: I know no games have been played, but just looking for a general overall feeling on this spot.

I'd be more concerned if I didn't think our running game was going to be significantly better.

So let's all hope I'm right and our run game is going to be significantly better.

From what I've heard Dan has worked hard and seems pretty motivated to improve upon last year's performance. Obviously TC and preseason will be a big opportunity for him to prove it.

I don't think he has to come in and light it up as much as show he's got a good grasp on the offense, can simply get the ball the the playmakers, and show he can be a competent replacement.

If not I think the FO would look for a veteran backup who can get the job done.

If Dan doesn't impress it just is another line of concern for this FO's ability to scout pro free agents.

Default Re: Backup QB situation

To be honest I don't particularly care who the backup is.

If Schaub goes down the team is screwed as most if not all other teams in the NFL would be if their starter went down.

Not too many times are you going to luck into having a Brady to take over your team and lead it to glory.

Default Re: Backup QB situation

I know it probably won't happen, but I would really like them to bring back Sage. He knows the offense already and could step in to that role just fine. Yes, we've had the "Rosencopter" to deal with, but for the most part, he's served in the back-up role well.

Speaking of Sage, not going so well in Minnesota.

Quote:
During offseason workouts, Vikings quarterback Sage Rosenfels appeared to disappear from the depth chart, getting limited reps.

As it turns out, there are worse things than getting limited reps in the offseason.

Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune points out that Rosenfels threw six interceptions between Saturday night and Sunday practices. A seventh was dropped by linebacker Heath Farwell.
http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...age-rosenfels/

Quote:
MANKATO -- Sage Rosenfels insisted Friday that the whole Brett Favre situation and the fact that Rosenfels eventually might be the odd man out is something that he isn't thinking about.

However, after watching Rosenfels in the past two practices, it's pretty clear something isn't right. Rosenfels was picked off four times in the night practice on Saturday and threw two more interceptions in Sunday's single practice. He nearly had a third pass picked off but linebacker Heath Farwell could not hold onto the ball.

Vikings coach Brad Childress said after Sunday's practice that it's a double-edged sword when it comes to breaking down Rosenfels' play.

"We want [our quarterbacks] to be extremely aggressive because you want to be able to see what they can do and what the wide receiver or tight end they are throwing it to can do," Childress said. "Now, do you want them to take care of the ball with all of that said? Yeah, I don’t want them to nurse it around. ... I certainly don’t like the fact that he’s had balls intercepted and taken the other way.

"You look to try and explain it. Is it because you are doing it just the way we asked you to and try and stick a ball out there to a guy to see where he’s at? We’re also asking him to play down and distance football because we don’t ever practice a play that doesn’t have a down or a distance on it. I would like to see the interceptions come back."

The issue for the Vikings is that they need Rosenfels to have a good camp because that could help increase his trade value. If and when Favre returns, it seems logical the Vikings would try to deal Rosenfels to a team that realizes it needs help at quarterback. Best case scenario would be for the Vikings to get a conditional draft pick for Rosenfels that would be determined by how much he played for another team.

However, if he continues to struggle in camp, and eventually in preseason games, that is going to make it tough to get much in return.

I'd give up a 6th to get him back......possibly a late 5th. Piece of mind in that position is a big thing. He may not be the best, but I think he'd be the best we have.

Agreed. Rosen-copter is a much better choice @ backup position.
Please come back to Houston.

Sage nearly led this team to a victory over the Colts until he let the Rosencopter loose...
Might not be a bad addition for QB depth.

Except he is way to reckless. I had enough of his crazy ass.
