    Matt Cassel Named Starting QB

    #Vikings have done the expected & named Matt Cassel starter over rookie Teddy Bridgewater (as @JayGlazer said). Cassel gave them no choice

    No surprise, just official now.

    I like it. I'm sure we could start Teddy week 1 but I prefer the safe route with him right now after Cassel looked fairly strong in the preseason. Teddy will get his time to shine.

    Good. Glad the team can now focus on week four of the preseason... the most important game all year!

    Well at least we will get to see a lot of Teddy this Thursday. I am a little bummed because I'm not crazy about Cassel as a starting QB but he has looked pretty good (besides Saturday's game). I really want to see Teddy go in there and tear it up and prove all his haters wrong. Maybe he can learn a little on the bench (I'm still not convinced that you can learn a whole lot from the bench).

    The one thing that makes me happy about this is it clearly shows we have a good coaching staff that wants to win now and in the future and aren't trying to prove that they didn't reach to get Teddy. I think Cassel is on a short leash and we could end up seeing Teddy sooner then next year if Cassel starts playing closer to his career averages rather then what we have seen to this point in the offseason. Now I'm pumped to get this season started!!!

    Anyone else noticed that Adrian Peterson was very against Teddy Bridgewater. I haven't seen anything positive he has said about Teddy whatsoever unless it was Cassel is better than Teddy but he's doin okay. I wonder how much influence he has had in his support for cassel.

    Ap wants to win now. Cassell has a better chance at that

    Actually AP has said a couple times that he thinks Bridgewater can be really good in this league. Of course he is going to feel more comfortable with Cassel because hes played with him before and he is a veteran.

    Zimmer says he doesn't take players opinions into the equation which is a good thing. You pay your coaches to coach and direct the team. You pay your players to play the games.

    I too believe this is the right choice. Teddy will get his when the time is right. Had we been left with just him and Ponder we obviously know he would have won it or if Cassel would have came in and struggled it likely would be his too. Cassel had a strong off season and seems to be taking off with this new offense. Once we get AP this offense should be deadly off of play action.

    I like the decision.. Cassell has looked decent, and actually having Peterson will help anyone under center look better im thinking. I think Teddy will be the starter by the end of the season, but there is no harm in not rushing him at this point.

    If Teddy is the started by end of season that means A) cassel is hurt B) the season is lost. Sucks I have to root for Teddy not to have a reason to play.

    Trade cassel to the rams!

    C) Cassel has sucked but AD and the defense has helped us win games

    I just hope that when Cassel makes a bad play or two that we don't rush to the "Teddy, Teddy" chants, lol. We need support Cassel and I'd say after 4 or 5 games if he isn't impressing then we may see a change. Somewhat like we saw with Ponder last year. Think we gave him 3 games.
