Vikings Backup Quarterbacks Still Aspire to Start

Once again, Brett Favre has stolen the show in Minnesota and relegated the backup quarterbacks to irrelevance.

Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels are still unproven, one big reason why the Vikings pursued Favre so hard to play for a second
straight year.

Jackson and Rosenfels have each kept most of any frustration to themselves, but they're both also confident they're good enough to be reliable starters in the NFL. The only way to get better is to play, and that won't happen unless Favre misses a game for the first time since his storied career took off.

The Vikings also have a dilemma this weekend, whether to keep rookie Joe Webb for four quarterbacks on the roster or try to slip him on the practice squad or trade one of the backups.
