Why am I not worried about Rosenfels' penchant for throwing interceptions? His interception rate the last two seasons was over 5.3%. This is a concern, but it's relative. Last year Gus Frerotte's interception rate was 5.0%. Last year Brett Favre's interception rate was 4.2%. It's not like letting Frerotte go and missing out on Favre means now suddenly the Vikes have a QB that throws a lot of INTs. And I just don't have faith that Tarvaris Jackson will become anything other than a bad QB capable of decent games in good situations against bad defenses.
At Access Vikings, Chip Scoggins quotes Rosenfels on the situation:
“I think the whole thing was sort of a weird circumstance. I understand what the organization was trying to do. We’re back to where we were when I came here, competing with Tarvaris for the starting job. I’m excited for training camp.” [...] “I’ve been really busy over the last few months,” [...] “It’s not something I followed every day like the media has. For me, it hasn’t been nearly as stressful as it was maybe for some other people out there. I’ve taken the approach of whatever happens is going to happen.”That's the sort of mellow approach I expect from a fellow raised in "something of a hippie lifestyle" (USA Today). Hippies are awesome.
