Report: Freeman eventually will start for Vikings


It looked obvious when the Vikings signed quarterback Josh Freeman.  Then, when the Vikings started talking about the situation, it became less obvious.

Now, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports says it’s inevitable.

Freeman eventually will start for the Vikings, at some point this year.

It makes sense.  If the Vikings want to find out whether they’ll transform their relationship with Freeman from rent to own, they need to see what Freeman can do.

They already know what Christian Ponder can do.  Or, more accurately, can’t do.  And it’s likely one of the reasons why Ponder, who supposedly is still the starter, didn’t start on Sunday even though he has been cleared to play.

Instead, Cassel started.  And he has thrown an interception.

Which could mean we’ll see Ponder later today.  And then Freeman as soon as next Monday night in New York.

    I don’t think anyone thought that they gave a guy a 2 million dollar contract 5 weeks into the season to NOT play QB for them. The fact that he didn’t start today doesn’t mean anything. They’re just giving him time to learn the playbook and get comfortable.

    I agree, blonds have such a short shelf life.

    Replacing one sucky QB for another doesn’t rememdy anything.

    As a Viking fan all I know this team has not been coached up enough to compete and yes QB situation is in shambles and defense is in ruins. Skol Vikings

    Freeman is not white so he can never be criticized and will forever be over-hyped.

    All this Quarterback stuff doesn’t mean squat when you have a defense that can’t stop the Brian Hoyers (AKA 3rd string QB’s) of the NFL!!!

    But who are they going to start after Freeman sucks?

    @rick, and that just sums up the next 3-5 years for the Vikes.

    I’d definitely blame this loss on Christian Ponder!
