The spotlight will be on Brett Favre tonight at Candlestick Park. And that's fine with San Francisco quarterback Alex Smith.

Jackson: 7/11 with two nice 3rd down conversions
Webb: 7/14 and a nice 48 yard TD run
Sage: 2/7
Does anyone here REALLY think Sage is better than Jackson, or that Webb isn't going to take his place as the new 3rd QB?
No Jackson is better then Sage but as far as Webb goes No not this year will he be the 3rd QB. I think the VIKES will move Webb to the practice team for this year & keep Sage just in case Favre does go down, See the VIKES cant have Webb as a 2nd QB to Jackson & that is what he would be if Favre did go down & Webb just isnt ready yet to make that move.>>> GO VIKINGS

No chance. They can't put a player on the practice squad without first placing him on the waiver wire.

Remember Thigpen? They tried to sneak him through waivers to put him on the practice squad, and he was claimed by KC. No way they're letting Webb go.

People over rate the importance of having an experienced 3rd string QB. The majority of teams have rookies and other young prospects in the #3 spot. The Vikings are an aberation. Safe bet they don't want to pay Sage's $5 million contract this year for a guy who won't even see the field.

Webb stays. Take it to the bank!

Uhhh... If Favre goes down, the second QB will be Jackson.????

Webb won't see the field until 2 other QB's go down first.

Trust me. If that happens, the season's over anyway.
