    Based on what the reporters are saying, it's all a mental thing/practice thing. He struggles with the play calls, checks at the line, getting people where they need to be, etc.

    Ya know, all things he'd likely improve if given more practice time. Ugh. Essentially, he performs well in games, despite struggling at practice. I guess the Vikings prefer the opposite of that. See: Trevor Siemian

    I know he's just a backup QB, but I haven't been this frustrated about a Vikings situation like this in a while. Makes you wonder why the Vikings coaching staff isn't confident enough IN THEMSELVES to work with him and improve the mental aspect part of his game. That's probably the most concerning part for me.

    I personally prefer my quarterbacks to succeed in practice and struggle in games.

    I'm SOOO disappointed they had the foresight to trade for Vedvik, but not the forethought to KEEP him to punt and kick off.....then see how his FG kicking skills develop..........Wile is SOOOO replaceable

    ....wasted pick only reinforces the stupidity of it
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    Iím fine with having the worst backup qb in the league honestly. If Cousins goes down weíll get Tua or a top 5 pick, whatís one more year of losing?

    Is the fire Spielman train officially rolling???

    With the Packers releasing Kizer, I fully expect them to sign Sloter to give them our entire offensive playbook and eventually become their third straight hall of fame QB.

    Want no part of Tua. Dudes overrated as hell bc of one game winning throw 2 yrs ago in the national champ game.
    If we were going to truly suck I'd want it to be for the chick that plays QB at Clemson. She's damn good.

    Zylstra cut.

    I swear, if they cut Mataíafa, Iíll lose my mind.

    Update: Mataíafa has made the roster. Itís down to Johnson and Watts... most likely Watts wins

    They want to put Vedvik on the practice squad.

    Brandon Dillion has made the roster along with Boyd. Udoh as well.

    they may want to get him to the practice squad, but it's not going to happen...someone like Chicago will grab him

    Dillon only lasts until Morgan comes back I'd think

    Hercules made it! Good thing, too, or it'd screw up my fantasy name

    I think he will clear waivers because he looked so bad.

    I was wondering whose team that was. I literally laughed out loud.

    I never really got on the Sloter hype train. Playing well against 3rd stringers doesnít do much for me. Heís got some talent but heís now been cut by 2 different teams. Reports say heís struggled with the play book and hasnít practiced well. I donít like Mannion either but at least heís played in an NFL game before.
