Steve Hutchinson to IR, R.J. Archer Activated, Rhett Bomar Added

Since we got our weekly dose of drama fairly late in the piece this week, I want to make sure that a few of the roster moves the Vikings are making don't get lost in the shuffle.

The Vikings are celebrating Steve Hutchinson's recognition as one of the fifty greatest Vikings of all time by. . .placing him on injured reserve today. To fill Hutchinson's roster spot, the Vikings have purchased the contract of quarterback R.J. Archer from the practice squad and have added him to the active roster.

The Vikings have also signed quarterback Rhett Bomar off of the practice squad of the New York Giants.

So, just to clarify. . .as of this point in time, this is the Minnesota Vikings' quarterback situation.

They have Brett Favre. . .who, barring getting struck by lightning, getting hit by a car, or anything of that nature, will start. They have Joe Webb. They signed Patrick Ramsey earlier in the week, they've moved Archer off of the practice squad and onto the 53-man roster, and now they've signed Bomar as well.

Let me put that another way.

Unless I'm misunderstanding something or seeing something incorrectly. . .the Minnesota Vikings currently have FIVE quarterbacks on the 53-man active roster.

In whose world is THIS a good idea?

The events of the past two or three hours are seriously making my head hurt.
