With the impending arrival of Brett Favre in Minnesota I can't help but wonder what is going to happen to John David Booty.

The USC standout quarterback has already sat on the bench and racked up zero stats as a pro. Now, no doubt he will be pushed further down the line or out the door by the Vikings.

In comparison, his fellow USC snap takers are fairing about the same. With the exception of Carson Palmer.

Leinart is behind the aging bag boy in Arizona who wont go away.

Matt Cassel was kissed by the Patriot fairy and has been very lucky to find himself a starting job in Kansas City.

Mark Sanchez has yet to prove himself as a Jet, but is already harnessing enough press power to be a star.

And there sits Booty. Behind Rosenfels and Tavaris Jackson.

Fifth on the list in most USC Quarterback categories.

518 Completions, 6125 Passing Yards and 55 touchdowns in two seasons plus.

Yet the Vikings are hanging on the arrival of Brett Favre, who is quickly becoming the Elizabeth Taylor of the NFL. Old, diluted and irrelevant.

I would like to see John David Booty traded somewhere where he could show the league what he's got. Even in a back up position, he could take some snaps and get some stats.

To sign onto NFL.Com and see nothing but dashes in all categories is a shame.

Only the season at hand will tell what is in store for the Vikings and John David Booty.

But with all the shifting and shimming and courting young Quarterbacks that has been going on in the league,

somebody has got to want a Booty call.
