With the end of the Minnesota Vikings 2009 Training Camp this week, one thing is clear... Nobody knows how this season will go for the Vikings. At the end of last season with 9 wins in 12 games and a historic play-off appearance, things were finally looking good for our boys. Then Brad Childress, supposedly the Quarterback Guru, spent all of the off season courting Brett Favre. Where did that get the Vikings, a fair bit of pre-season media attention but no quarterback.
So now, Childress is back-peddling trying to prove that camp has changed his opinion of Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson, two quarterbacks that while he was chasing Favre were forgotten. With the first game of the preseason today it is clear that if the Vikings don't step onto the field confident with their choice, whoever it is, this season will be an uphill battle not only with the media but also internally to prove that they didn't just waste a ton of time with the whole Favre-mania thing this spring.
In my opinion, although it was tres disappointing to not have Mr. Favre pull on purple this season, Sage is ready. I have always felt that he was a good trade and if Brad Childress can make the right calls from the sidelines, Sage will be able to put the ball where it needs to be. Tonight the Vikings take on the Indianapolis Colts in Indiana, I for one will be glued to the TV in eager anticipation of seeing my boys out on the field for the first time this year!
