Leslie Frazier is going to keep us guessing this week

AP

Since announcing which of his bad quarterbacks he planned to start hasn’t worked so well, Vikings coach Leslie Frazier is going to keep it to himself this week.

Frazier told reporters today that he had an idea who was going to start against the Cowboys this week, but he didn’t plan to reveal his decision until later in the week.

At this point, anyone other than Josh Freeman would be a surprise. He was inactive for Sunday’s loss to the Packers after suffering a concussion, though he was cleared to play. That gave him another week to digest what the Vikings want to do, after he was thrown in so soon after being acquired.

Christian Ponder was back in the lineup last week, with Matt Cassel backing up.

  1. Tough choice. Do you go with the guy who throws it 25 feet over the receivers head, or continue to bet your career on the quarterback who’s scared to throw it?

  2. The Vikings are showing their hand too much… that’s obviously why they’re 1-6.

    What kind of pick do the Cowboys want? A rainbow jump ball or a bullet to the numbers??

  3. The Vikings should be talking to Huff (Ravens just released) and the other guy…anyone with a dang heartbeat that can play some D’ I would fire everyone in that defensive secondary….Cook has to go, Robinson HAS to go, Jefferson has to go, Sanford has to go, Raymond has to go…did I miss anyone?…keep the rookie just in case he gets better…

    As a Vikings fan, I say we should start whoever gives is the best chance to finish 1-15.-

    Agreed. Shameless tanking for the rest of the season sounds good to me. Then Mariota, Bridgewater, or Manziel can lead us to glory. Maybe it’s best not to let Speilman make the choice between the three though, he’s been extremely good with first rounders, but he failed so hard with Ponder that idk if I trust him to try again on a qb. Another miss would end AD’s chances of winning the big one.

  5. Dallas must be shaking in their boots: prepare to defend a guy who can’t pass or prepare to defend for a guy who throws the ball a mile even when the receiver is only ten yards away.

  6. It’s tough on a defense to prepare. They don’t know if they’re preparing for countless overthrows or countless underthrows.

  7. He should decide by playing spin the bottle. Not only is that easier than throwing darts (which would miss), but judicious choice of beverage bottle would provide him with a much needed dose of liquid courage.

  8. Good golly. It’s like they’re “playing” NFL team over there.

    Also, can they please address what happened with the Allen trade? Sounds like Spielman was demanding a 2nd round pick. Which is outrageous for a 31 yr old DE with a huge contract. I would like some accountability, please. Allen is going to walk after this year and we will have nothing in return. U.N.A.C.C.E.P.T.A.B.L.E.

  9. I have a better idea, why don’t we throw a different defensive coordinator at them? You know, one that actually has plans to stop a 3rd and 3.

  10. How’s it going, Vike Fans? By the way, how did that Jared Allen trade turn out? What’d you get? A conditional 2nd? Or a 3rd?

  11. I certainly havent watched all of the Vikings games, I am not a fan, but I dont get the problem with Ponder? I watched the last 2 Vikings games. With Freeman at QB, the Vikings made the Giants look like the best defense the NFL has ever seen. Then this past week Ponder kept the Vikings in the game against the Packers. If the Vikings defense could have gotten 2 stops (which really is a sad request, but since they made zero stops all game…) the Vikings had a chance.

    As far as I am concerned, if you are looking to win games, Ponder is your guy. If you are looking to tank the rest of the season in order to hopefully get Manziel, Freeman is your guy

  12. @Kayne East (should that say Kanye?) –

    Ponder is probably better than Freeman, but he is terrible. He can’t find an open receiver. If he does find one, he’s often too scared to throw it to him. He has no chance of being the kind of quarterback it takes to win in the NFL. Therefore, we’ll start Freeman so we can secure that nice, juicy, top-3 pick.

    Are you forgetting that they have Adrian Peterson on the Vikings? He’s a warrior and will win a handful by himself this season still. His son was brutally beaten to death and I’m sure AP will want to honor his memory by playing his heart out. If that’s not a reason to root for your team to win and root for Peterson, then you’re not a true fan. Maybe you should watch ice skating or something.

  14. Its actually “Kayne” on purpose, because Kanye is one of the world’s biggest d-bags so it is kind of a mess up his name on purpose because he is a d-bag joke…

  15. Ponder’s problem is that he only looks for one receiver so the solution is to have 2 receivers run routes near each other.

    There was a play that Greg Jennings was completely open but he was on the other side of the field so Ponder tried to run.

  16. One thing that we don’t have to guess at is how inept Frazier and his clown crew of coordinators are..

  17. You have Adrian Peterson, Greg Jennings and had 3 first round picks this year. Now you are in line for a top 3 to 5 pick next year. No QB, no Allen for next year, poor coaching. Must be some sad purple tears.

  18. Like it has been since the walker trade. Bad effing office management. We won’t be satisfied until Peterson wants out. I wanted to watch a game this year but who wants to travel 8 hrs to watch us get blown out and embarrassed. I like to spend money wisely. Not spend it to piss myself off. Better do something quick this offseason or we will lose our fan base Then the franchise goes.

  19. A Qb getting drafted with high with lots potential by Minny. won’t mean anything.

    The last time they developed a QB was when they told Culpepper to heave it up to Randy Moss.

    Lead you to glory? Ha!

    The only religious experience you delusional toads will be lead to is on the Highway to Hell.

    The only way AD wins the big one is if he’s traded to another team. Soon.
