In the first preseason game, I was impressed on how Son how he handled the offense and was able to lead the offense to the end zone with a Chester Taylor 5 yard run. In the Viking 13-3 win, Sage lead the Viking to 10 points in his two drives he played in the game. Rosenfels went 10-13 for 91 yards passing. Brad Childress figured that he saw enough from Sage for the day and then went to Tarvaris Jackson.
Jackson had a average outing for his first preseason game. He went 7-15 with a whooping 39 yards passing and zero yards rushing on 4 attempts. Jackson did continue with his accuracy issues with the alternates. Jackson did have one long drive ending in a Ryan Longwell 36 yard field goal. Other than that drive, Jackson was not impressive, but he was scrambling in the backfield quite a bit.
Chilly did state that Jackson will be starting next week vs. Kansas City, now we will see how Jackson plays with the starters compared the second teamers.
