Multiple readers tell us that Vikings coach Brad Childress has told our pal Paul Allen, the radio play-by-play voice of the team whose touchdown calls are the stuff of legend (as is our ability to suck up), that a decision has been made regarding the starting quarterback for tonight’s preseason game at Indianapolis.
Sage Rosenfels will get the nod.
Childress previously has said that the two candidates for the starting job won’t split reps with the first team, but that one will get the first-team reps in each game.
Presumably, Tarvaris Jackson will start the second preseason game. The third preseason game, in which starters typically play all of the first half and into the third quarter, likely will be significant to the ultimate question of who’ll start in Week One of the games that count.
