It will be interesting to see who can fill that role.Quote:
"We're about to get to that point," Musgrave said. "We wanted to get Jerome up to speed, but you're right, we're going to get to the point real soon where we start to prepare somebody else to play that split end for the first three games."
Feel bad for Sage. Just a few years ago his team wouldn't trade him as their backup for a third round pick. Now he is fighting for third string.Quote:
The plan is for Sage Rosenfels to be the third quarterback against the Bills after McLeod Bethel-Thompson handled those duties in San Francisco.
no chance at 53 man roster.Quote:
Halfback Jordan Todman (ankle) tried to practice again but came up limping after a catch in a team drill. He's a long shot to play on Friday.
• Ponder was 9-of-20 passing in team (11-on-11) drills. Webb was 12-of-18, Rosenfels 10-of-12 and Bethel-Thompson 1-of-4.
Clearly Webb is outplaying Ponder. He should get the starting nod. And Sage is getting screwed again.;)
He's made over $10 million beginning with the 2009 season & hasn't thrown a single pass in a regular season game since, never was active for a Vikings regular season game & only took 3 knees for the giants.
Not bad for a guy who can't even run a bootleg.
Better than Sage as BU QB.
I would say yes. I would rather have Webb than Rosenfels. Rosenfels has under impressed for a few years now, never living up to what I thought he could have. Webb has had a shitty training camp and game so far, but he still has had more flashes as a Vikings QB than Sage has. I think Webb is higher risk/higher reward.
Besides, if Ponder is injured, what little hope I have for this season is shot anyway, so we may as well roll the dice with Web.
