    We have the first two covered. Hopefully he can help with the last two.
    That third down conversion has been lacking.

    Solve that, and this team will be incredible.

    I find it hard to believe that he never made it on every other team he's been with in 9 years, but somehow we're the perfect fit for him, and he's all of a sudden going to be good.
    Just not seeing it.

    Unfortunately, as of right now, the Vikings do not carry a sure starter until either Sage or TJ proves otherwise.
    The difference between Sage and TJ is TJ was handed the starting position without competition.
    Sage was always behind a person slated to start and therefore only has filled in.
    Here is his chance to win the starting job.
    Whether or not he takes advantage of it is another story.

    The sad part is I am not sure they will carry a sure playoff winning caliber QB even when the battle between those two is decided. That is the part we should all be worried about.

    I agree.
    I hope we are wrong but as of right now there is no sure starter.
    Let's hope either one of them step up.

    Re: Sage Rosenfels Controlling only what he can

    Well we upgraded the QB position. We have two mediocre QBs instead of one
    :

    I hope this does some good. Either TJ has a breakaout 4th year like Brees did, or Rosenfels resurrects his career. Either way, I just need a QB to get us to the 2nd round of the playoffs this year. Booty and Frazier can take us to the SB next year ;D.
    Halo 4. Start another fight.

    Just to clear it up ... I have seen this about 100 times on here, but it is only EIGHT years. He has only been in the league seven years and has not been given a shot.
    Is he a true pedigree top guy like the Mannings, Brady or Brees ... probably not ... but he has never had the opportunity to start, not really because of talent or lack of, but because of the guys in front of him.
    It is not unprecedented for QBs to take a while to grow and become starters. To put it in perspective:
    - Kurt Warner was not a full-time starter in the NFL until he was 28-years-old, and only then because of an injury to Trent Green.
    - Jeff Garcia was not a starter until halfway through the season where he was 29.
    - Trent Green was 28 when he was given his first starting gig in the NFL.
    - Rich Gannon was 25 when he got his first chance, was horrible, and then did not get another gig until he was 33!
    - Brad Johnson was 29 when he became a starter in the league.

    All of these guys turned out all right. A combined 16 Pro Bowls, 4 All-Pros, 3 MVPs, 2 Super Bowl rings among them.
    I see no reason to completely discard Sage. In the last two season when he has started here and there he has looked pretty good. Houston even had a huge problem that a lot of people wanted him to start over Schaub, but it would never happen due to Schaub's contract.
    Could Sage come in and suck completely, sure. But to discard him based on the fact that he has never gotten a shot is just not really giving him a fair chance.

    GReat point. I still think Sage will have a better grasp of this offense than TJ. However, it all depends on how TJ grows this offseason. I have seen him grow each offseason but based off last season, Sage's best is much higher than Tjs. It will be a fun camp.

    I think a lot of people forget this point.
    Until the unveiling of the Rosencopter, Sage was getting some support to start ahead of Schaub.
