You said yourself on many many occasions that you don't learn from sitting on the bench so you of anyone should be calling for Jackson to be seeing large amounts of playing time in the preseason games. Let him try to figure stuff out here so when he gets in a real game he doesn't freeze up and miss hits shots.
Before you guys get all giddy & agog about Sage's performance, do I have to remind you that he did it against the second stringers & their backups of the worst team in the league last year?
How soon people forget the Rams were 1-15 last year & their defense was the 3rd worst in the league (29th). LOL!
He might be getting shopped or at least getting a last damn good look at him before saying bye-bye to the $9 mil waste, just to make the Vikings more sure of what they are doing.
With Jackson sitting longer, perhaps they are saving their starting QB in case Favre decides he isn't coming after all, just as a precautionary measure.
Most likely, it's a repeat of last year. Sage played the majority of the first game & Jackson played the majority of the second.
Same song, second verse.
