At the present time, we don’t know who exactly who will be starting at quarterback for the Vikings when they travel to Jerryworld this Sunday to take on the Dallas Cowboys. We do know however,who is won’t be starting.
At Tuesdays press conference, Leslie Frazier announced that quarterback Matt Cassel would not be the team’s starting quarterback this Sunday.
“I don’t want to discount Matt [Cassel], but Christian [Ponder] did some good things in that ballgame. There were some things he could obviously do better, but that has something to do with it. He has led us to some wins in the past,” Frazier said. “Josh [Freeman], we brought him here to evaluate him and determine whether he could be a guy that could be a potential player for us in the future.”
“That’s what goes into trying to evaluate the both of them.”
Personally, this is quiet a shock. When I first heard about this, I was certain that it would be Christian Ponder who’d be the odd man out. This is, as we say, a charlie foxtrot of the first degree, and will likely continue to be throughout the rest of the season. There’s no way for this team to really start fresh until 2014, so strap in folks, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
