(Minnesota Sports Zone) -- (Fanhouse) -- (Pacifist Viking)
We've looked into the Real Fake Sports crystal ball for help predicting what may happen at QB for the Vikings this year.
Scenario #1: Sagaris Jacksenfels A is named the starter, but struggles through the first 3 games of the year. Sagaris Jacksenfels B takes over in week 4 through week 9, only to be replaced by Sagaris Jacksenfels A. Sagaris Jacksenfels B takes over again in week 13, following Sagaris Jacksenfels A's injury.
Scenario #2: Sagaris Jacksenfels is finally able to start all 16 games. He leads the Vikings to a sparkling 14-2 record, wins the NFL MVP (his first of 4), and ignites his Hall of Fame career.
Scenario #3: Without a top notch QB, coach Brad Childress elects to snap the ball directly to Adrian Peterson. When told he only has 10 players on the field, Childress will respond, "The quarterback is not much of a blocker. He may as well just stay out of the way."
Scenario #4: Brett Favre returns, is named the starting QB, and the Vikings jump out to a 7-0 record. During a tight battle with the Green Bay Packers on November 1st, the Vikings have the ball, but trail 24-20 with 2:00 left. Favre begins one of his patented two minute drills, but decides mid-play that he doesn't want to play football anymore. He walks off the field to one of his favorite Green Bay hangouts to enjoy one of Wisconsin's finest microbrews. The Vikings go on to lose the game, plus 7 of their last 8 to finish 8-8 and miss the playoffs.
