Friday’s starting QB doesn’t necessarily indicated Week 1’s starter.

The starter for this Friday’s preseason game hasn’t been determined just yet.

But when they decide who starts Friday, it won’t be any indication of who the Vikings coaches believe will be the starter when Week 1 finally comes around.

Coach Childress has stated that he wants to see each of the two QBs play with the starting unit during the preseason.  He’s not going to alternate QBs with the first team.  Instead he’s going to let either Tarvaris or Sage play the entire time the first unit is on the field this friday, then the other guy will play with the first unit in next week’s game.

It’ll be interesting to watch how each of them perform.  I’m hoping that BOTH of them blow away all of us fans.
