Starting QB still a secret

So, who's going to start at quarterback for the Vikings at Kansas City on Sunday?

Coach Brad Childress said he's made a decision and told his quarterbacks, but none of them are talking.

The Vikings listed Tarvaris Jackson as doubtful on today's injury report, which means it's down to Kelly Holcomb and Brooks Bollinger, with Holcomb considered a slight favorite.

Childress said he expects to tell the rest of the team Saturday before leaving for Kansas City, but the Chiefs and the rest of the world probably won't find out until shortly before kickoff Sunday.

"It's a family," Childress said. "You don't talk about your stuff on the street. We don't talk about our stuff on the street."

Both Holcomb and Bollinger said they felt they had a good week of practice but neither was about to give away Childress' secret.

In addition to Jackson (groin), fullback Tony Richardson (forearm) was listed as doubtful on the injury report.

Safeties Darren Sharper (hip) and Dwight Smith (hamstring) were listed as questionable, as were running back Chester Taylor (hip) and wide receiver Troy Williamson (hamstring).

Sharper, Smith and Taylor all said they would play.

I don't care if Childress himself plays Quarterback... just as long as we don't have to endure another Brooks Bollinger nightmare.
