How the Vikings QB Spot Looks Without Favre

It is interesting to see how the Vikings depth chart virtually broke down in this weekend’s minicamp at the quarterback position:

  1. Tarvaris Jackson
  2. Joe Webb
  3. Sage Rosenfels

That’s right, Joe Webb got to run with the second team as a quarterback.  The late draft pick was originally slated to try and crack the depth chart as a wide out, but impressed the coaching staff throwing the ball during rookie camp.

He impressed the staff enough to seemingly bounce Rosenfels down a notch, which cannot sit well with the veteran signal caller.

“He is very raw at this point,” Darrell Bevell said. “There are a lot of things that he can continue to improve on – from his footwork to his decision-making and just learning our offense. As we’ve talked about, it’s very robust. There is a lot of verbiage to it. There are things you have to remember. There’s motions, there’s protections, there’s hots. There are a lot of things that he is thinking about and he has done a nice job with it, but there are still some things he needs to be working on.”

Given Webb’s upside and versatility, the battle for the honor of backing up Brett Favre just got a lot more interesting.
