Football betting fans were disappointed in the announcement that Brett Favre would stay retired, (at least for now), against the football odds. With Favre finally turning down the Vikings offer to start for them this football betting season the Vikings now have to try and save face and patch things up with Tarvaris Jackson, a 4 year pro out of Alabama State, and their starter at the end of the season last year as well as in their playoff loss to the Philadelphia Eagles against the football odds.
Jackson could not be pleased that the Vikings were courting Favre but now the job is his and he will need to clear his head and improve his consistency during the football betting preseason.
Jackson finished strong and had a 95.4 quarterback rating with 9 touchdowns and 2 interceptions while out performing Favre down the stretch in the 2008 football betting campaign. Sage Rosenfels is Jackson’s backup and he figures to see plenty of action for the football betting preseason.
Rosenfels is a 9 year pro out of Iowa State that has been a career backup. He spent the last 3 football betting campaigns with the Houston Texans. Rosenfels has a career quarterback rating of 81 with 30 touchdown passes and 29 interceptions.
John David Booty, a 2 year pro out of Southern Cal, is currently 3rd on the Vikings football betting quarterback depth chart. Booty has no regular season NFL experience and was a 5th round draft pick of Minnesota in 2008. He is expected to see plenty of snaps in the football betting preseason.
The Vikings took wide receiver Percy Harvin out of Florida in the first round of the draft. Harvin was quite versatile at Florida as last year he caught 40 passes for 644 yards and ran for 660 yards on 70 carries for 10 touchdowns. The Vikings will give him plenty of exhibition work in order to learn the offense.
