    Sage vs. Webb vs. Tjack

    Assuming Favre can lock up a starting job, the remaining jobs will be distributed between the three aforementioned QBs. I think its safe to say that Tjack has the 2nd string job locked up, so we have to decide what to do with Webb.

    I'll try to make this unbiased

    Tavaris Jackson

    Positives- Should know the offense by now, mobile, Chilly's boy, has a cannon

    Negatives- Can't consistently make what should be simple throws, debatably poor decision making, inaccurate, doesn't seem to have the smarts to play QB

    Sage
    Positives- More accurate than other back up options, semi-experienced veteran, seems to have a quick release, doesn't get sacked much

    Negatives- Weak arm, not as mobile as Tjack/Webb, has reached his full potential e.g. nothing special

    Joe Webb

    Positives- Hasn't failed yet, strong arm, very fast, extremely athletic, shows nice touch on some passes, good size, hard to bring him down

    Negatives- Very raw passer, he's a rookie, goes to his check down too much, but thats rookies for you


    Did I leave something out? Disagree with one of my +/-'s? What do you all think about our QB situation behind Favre?

    Re: Sage vs. Webb vs. Tjack

    After todays game, I'd be in favour of dropping TJ. He still looks lost and confused in the pocket. Yes, its only preseason, which is why he gets another chance.

    Webb is obviously very raw, and should never see a regular season game field for a year or two. However, I'd like to keep him, as I think he can be an interesting prospect.

    Sage will never be any better than he is, which quite frankly isn't very good.

    I still would keep them all.

    I see more upside in Webb than TJ.

    Sage has 2 years left on a contract (expensive inactive QB)

    Jackson 1 but is cheaper

    Sage was an insurance policy for Jackson, a younger Frerotte, someone to test/push Jackson or fallback to if Jackson faultered or got hurt.

    Its Jackson's fifth year, keep him, cancel the Rosenfels policy and hope there isn't a fire.

    Of course it is only the second week of preseason and decision don't need to be rushed.

    Other option is to take Jackson's and Rosenfels' red jerseys away in the practises before the week 4 preseason game; a thunderdome if you will, run the blitz packages on them and keep the survivor. 2 QBs enter practise, one QB exits :huh: :woohoo:

    Tina Turner can sing we don't need another zero in the background

    The depth chart is in order as it is.

    Tjoke > Sage > Webb.
    We're bringing purple back.

    Re:Sage vs. Webb vs. Tjack

    I think Sage should be higher than Tjack on the depth chart. He gives us a better shot to win, IMO, seems to make better decisions. But if Favre goes down for the season, we might as well rotate between Tjack and Webb, because I think we can all agree that we won't win a Super Bowl with any of our backups so we might as well see what we have in Tjack finally and get Webb some experience to see if he has any future.

    Re:Sage vs. Webb vs. Tjack

    Webb is out of the question. It's easy to rip on Jackson, but fact of the matter is way better than Webb at this point. Jackson looks way better than he did 4 years ago, and Webb doesn't even look as good as Jackson did in Jackson's first preseason game.

    I think we need to keep Webb but the option should still be Sage vs. Tjack. That is up for debate. Sage has looked superior in preseason...tough to argue that one. But Tjack is our little engine that could (or couldn't) so you gotta factor that as well.

    I agree completely. He won't make the practice squad if we try squeaking him on to it. I've heard several people say he's the most athletic person on the team, however, he's not a #2 guy, at least not now. Maybe someday.

    yep...MAYBE someday.

    I'd still like to see him get some reps at WR. He has play-making ability written all over him. Maybe he has Troy Williamson hands...who knows.

    Re:Sage vs. Webb vs. Tjack

    IMHO the order should be TJack, Sage, and then Webb. However, since we arent' going to keep 4 QBs, the question becomes who is the odd man out.

    TJack makes a strong #2. I still don't think he is starter material, but I think he is one of the best backups in the league. I think Sage holds the most trade value for us. If we can I say we trade him and recoup some of what we paid for him. If not, keep him as the #3 and push Webb to the practice squad. If he gets picked up, no huge loss. He is an intriguing prospect, but nothing I would lose sleep over.
