Vikings’ Jackson: Competition with Rosenfels is ’50-50′

Minnesota’s Tarvaris Jackson said that his quarterback competition with Sage Rosenfels is even up, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Jackson went 2-4 as the team’s starter in 2008, including a 26-14 loss to the Eagles in the playoffs. But the team acquired Rosenfels in the offseason in a trade with Houston to compete for the job.

The Star Tribune reported that Jackson said it’s a close battle for the team’s starting quarterback spot.

    “I don’t think they’re going to show me any favoritism just because I ended the year as a starter,” he said. “I just think it’s 50-50 and we’re going to fight for it as hard as we can.” …
    “I love my job, and I’ve just got to go out here and try to get better. If I play better, I won’t have to answer all these questions all the time.”

Of course, if the team signs Brett Favre, the whole competition becomes moot.
