Being a new Minnesota Vikings fan, I was very glad that the Vikings did not sign the very troubled Brett Favre.

So the next question I ask myself is, who will be the starter this season?

1.) John David Booty- Booty the ex USC quarterback in his second has never took a regular season snap yet, last season he played in all four preseason he went 22-44 203 yards with 0 Td's and 3 INT's, Booty would have to improve this off season to be a No. 1 or No. 2 guy he is projected to be a No. 3 guy, with a lot of potential I mean he is a former USC quarterback.

side note (Booty should be glad Favre will not be a Viking or he would have had to changed his number and most NFL teams don't carry four QB's on the depth chart so he would have  probably been released).

2.) Tarvaris Jackson - Jackson in his fourth year out of Alabama State didn't fare all that well last season being replaced by Gus Frerrotte and Brooks Bollinger in many game's this season will either make or break Jackson could be his last chance to make an impact he went 88-149 1056 yards with 9 TD's and 2 INT's last season.

Projected No. 2 backup QB going into preseason.

3.) Sage Rosenfels - the former Redskin, Dolphin, Texan in his ninth season out of Iowa may finally have his chance to shine in the NFL as more than just a backup he should be the projected starter going into the preseason.

Rosenfels played for the Texans last season started five games 116- 174 for 1431 yards with 6 TD's and 10 INT's

4.) Sean Glennon - was asked to compete in rookie mini camp as an undrafted free agent, the former Virginia Tech QB could show he has NFL talent time will tell he will probably run the practice squad if anything next season.
