Vikings not ready to name starting quarterback for Week One

FILE - In this Saturday, Aug. 27, 2016, file photo, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford watches from the sideline during the second half of an NFL preseason football game against the Indianapolis Colts in Indianapolis. The Eagles traded Bradford Saturday, Sept. 3, 2016, to the Minnesota Vikings for a pair of draft picks. Bradford replaces Teddy Bridgewater, who went down for the season after suffering a gruesome knee injury this week. The Eagles receive a first-round pick in 2017 and a fourth-round pick in 2018.

We know that the Vikings plan to have Sam Bradford as their starting quarterback this season after trading a first-round pick to the Eagles to acquire him in the wake of Teddy Bridgewater’s season-ending knee injury.

We don’t know whether Bradford will be their starter against the Titans in Week One, however.

Coach Mike Zimmer said on Monday that he’s not ready to say whether Bradford, who practiced with the team for the first time earlier in the day, or Shaun Hill will be in the lineup. He did say, via Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, that both quarterbacks are going to get reps with the first team over the course of the week. Based on that, it doesn’t sound like a decision will be announced in the next couple of days.

Reports from practice had Hill getting the first crack on Monday. Those reps should be helpful for Bradford whether he gets the nod this weekend or not and a week on the sideline listening to the calls and otherwise observing the offense probably wouldn’t hurt either, although the price paid for Bradford makes it hard to rule out a quicker timeline.

    Don’t be surprised if it’s Bradford. He’s not Josh Freeman.

    But let’s get to the important stuff – who’s their starter at left guard?

  3. shaggytoodle says: Sep 5, 2016 2:30 PM

    Trade a 1st for a guy, and not even sure he can start? Who do they think they are fooling?

  4. ReligionIsForIdiots says: Sep 5, 2016 2:30 PM

    They’ll still only win five games in that glass slipper stadium. The only positive is that it’ll be heated in December! As soft as it gets!

  5. Kapodaco says: Sep 5, 2016 2:31 PM

    Are we really gonna play this game? They gave up a 1st round pick for the guy! Of course they’re gonna start him.

  6. preposterousstatementtournament says: Sep 5, 2016 2:38 PM

    Hill will start Week 1.
    Bradford will start Week 2.

    It’s not rocket science.

  7. In Teddy We Trust says: Sep 5, 2016 2:38 PM

    Zimmer likes to keep things close to the vest so he isn’t going to let you know the starter until he has to. I’d be very surprised if it isn’t Hill. Hill played the first half against the Seahawks’ starters in the second preseason game and looked pretty good. I’m sure he can manage the team well enough to beat the Titans (no disrespect intended, I think they’ll be okay this year). Bradford won’t have time to learn the offense and get comfortable running it. The safe play is to start Hill and bring in Bradford if Hill is struggling.

  8. steves11 says: Sep 5, 2016 2:42 PM

    It will really get interesting when the Vikings play the Eagles later in the season. Bradford will get his chance to extract revenge on the Eagles for all they put him through with the whole Carson Wentz deal.

    Yeah, I just made a left guard joke – because it’s such an important and hard-to-replace position unlike quarterback.

  13. valentino8100 says: Sep 5, 2016 2:46 PM

    Brilliant -mortgage your future by wasting a first round pick on a journeyman qb not good enough to be named the outright starter. Bridgewater is really promising, they have a winner at HC, a lot of young talent, and then go and pull this garbage. SMH.

  14. whatjusthapped says: Sep 5, 2016 2:47 PM

    The only reason Bradford won’t start is that he has to learn more of the playbook. Hand off right on first down, hand off left on second down, throw a check down pass on third down can be complicated stuff, or so it seems to Norv “Mr. Predictable” Turner.

  15. skol4life says: Sep 5, 2016 2:51 PM

    Hill will start against the Titans. Zim won’t give the Packers any film on Bradford

  16. tonebones says: Sep 5, 2016 2:51 PM

    As soon as the schedule is announced, teams start preparing game plans for their first opponent. Shaun Hill and the rest of the team have to have a good week of practice, and Sam can try to pick it up along the way. If he can, he’ll start. If not, he’ll be good to go week 2. When you have super bowl aspirations, week #1 isn’t as important as the entire rest of the season. They certainly don’t have to explain anything to people like you and me.

  17. zaphod424242 says: Sep 5, 2016 2:54 PM

    Depends on how fast 8 picks up the offense. If not for Sunday Hill still had reps to prepare. It’s a one-week situation.

    I wonder though with all of the changes Bradford has had in his career if he hasn’t gotten really good at picking up new systems.

    Yup, that pretty much sums it up, though I do think it’ll be Hill starting. He’ll at least know more than 12 plays.

  19. beer4guy says: Sep 5, 2016 2:57 PM

    I say start Hill and see how it goes. If he plays well, stick with him until Zim and Norv are confident that Bradford is completely ready. But have a small package of plays ready for Bradford, just in case Hill struggles or gets hurt. Do that each of the first few games until the package of plays that Zimmer and Norv are confident that Bradford can handle is equal to the game plan. Then start him.

  20. golforepar says: Sep 5, 2016 2:59 PM

    Does not matter. It will be 9 in the box no matter what scrub is starting at QB!

  23. zerotrophiessince1961 says: Sep 5, 2016 3:11 PM

    They just don’t want to put fragile Sammy behind that atrocious OL until they have to. I don’t blame them – while I’m not wishing injury on anyone, I doubt he lasts a month behind those 5 turnstiles.

  24. chrisk61 says: Sep 5, 2016 3:15 PM

    let’s hope TO GOD for vikes sake that bradford stays healthy.

    yes he is fully recovered from 2 ACL’s

    but remember last yr for eagles bradford suffered both concussion and shoulder injury in wk 10 vs miami. he missed rest of that gm, wk 11 vs TB and wk 12 vs detroit.

    ==================

    Uh, you do realize that Alex Boone is the left guard, correct? He’s been here all through training camp and the pre-season. Doing quite well, too.

    Kalil is the left tackle. Maybe you’re confusing the two positions. let me school you. See, there’s the center in the middle, next there are two guards; left and right. Finally, there’s two tackles on the outside, left and right.

    You truly are a GB fanboy.

  26. thegrey7 says: Sep 5, 2016 3:16 PM

    Hill starts week 1. He knows the system and is a competent QB to throw in for a week. Plus, it’s only the Titans.

    Unless Hill is on fire week 1, Bradford starts week 2.

  27. lambeaudungbarn says: Sep 5, 2016 3:19 PM

    I talked to Mike Wobschall from vikings.com last
    night and he told me he and the rest of the Vikings staff are very excited about getting Bradford, He told me that they do NOT expect Teddy Bridgewater to be ready for next season.
    He said Sam brings everything positive Teddy did last year with the deep ball the team was hoping he would be improving on this year. I came away with a feeling that he believes it is a definite upgrade at the position, no matter how much he likes and respects Teddy.
    If you look at how many drops Philly Receivers had last year it probably equaled a 2-3 win swing, with 3-4 less picks.
    The feeling was once Sam got off the Rams team he was rejuvenated, fresh and had turned a positive corner in his career, plus the man had NEVER played beside a top 10 running back.

  28. tokyosandblaster says: Sep 5, 2016 3:21 PM

    Why would they? Bradford is 50/50 to tear his acl by then.

    What I don’t understand is everyone saying Teddy isn’t a very good QB. Now the Vikes bring in an average QB and suddenly they won’t make the playoffs.
    So which is it? If Teddy was that bad then Bradford should be an upgrade,right?
    The good thing is once the season is over we shall see

  33. kamthechancellor says: Sep 5, 2016 3:45 PM

  36. vikinghooper says: Sep 5, 2016 4:12 PM

    It doesn’t matter all this BS talk.
    The Vikings season was over because Hill stinks. He was the starter for the Rams 2-3 years ago and was benched at halftime of the first game. He is immobile and has marginal arm strength.
    Did I mention he is 36?
    The Vikings came up with a daring plan and will fail spectacularly or succeed. Life is about taking risks.
    The Walker trade actually was exciting for Vikng fans back then, although no one mentioned 9 picks were involved.
    Let the season play out; it was bold and better than shelving the season or signing Sanchez. I migh have tried for Kaepernick for a 3rd round pick, but that has its own issues.

  37. aj66shanghai says: Sep 5, 2016 4:13 PM

    There’s as good a chance as any that Bradford stays healthy, this works out great and people will be saying “Teddy who?”

    So long as he is healthy, and has time to learn the playbook before being the starter, I think this puts the Vikings right with the Panthers, Cardinals and Seahawks in the NFC.

    Just watch, one day they’ll make a Hollywood film out of this season. “More Almost Than Ever.”

    Atrocious OL my foot. Where have you been the last six months? Living in a black hole? The OL is very good, much better than the one directly to the east, a bonehead team too cheap to retain a Pro Bowl guard when they have an aging QB who sees “ghosts” against good defenses and is on a one-trick pony team. Pretty dumb move.

    Picking him up was a great move by the Vikes. They did over pay Spielman even admitted so. Still a great move AP is what 31 now, do they have probably 2 seasons to wait for Teddy to be 100%? Hell no.
    And anyway ask the Browns how certain it is that a 1st round pick plays well

    I find it hilarious that since it’s the Vikings trading for Bradford, he’s “washed up”, “overrated”, “horrible pickup”, etc. Yet if it was the Pack that picked him up, because Rodgers was hurt, it would be “great pickup”, “highly underrated QB”, “next man up” “the Packers won’t miss a beat”, etc.

  51. tjacks7 says: Sep 5, 2016 6:08 PM

    Unless Hill really bombs, or Bradford is the smartest QB in the history of the league and really wows, Hill will play until Bradford is ready, which wont be until week 2 at the earliest. Not that Zimmer cares, but can you imagine the media and the Monday morning QBs if Bradford looks bad in his first game with almost no preparation?

    This comment section really gives you a good idea of how many people here have actually played football or even have more than a basic grasp of the game. Like it’s simple to pick up a playbook as an NFL QB and play a game a week later.

    ===================================
    Bradford is a slight upgrade over Bridgewater. The problem is with your assumption and generalization that “Everyone is saying Teddy isn’t a very good QB”. A lot people think he’s average to below average because he hasn’t shown a lot yet, throws primarily short passes, QB’s the leagues 3oth rated passing attack, and commands one of the worst red zone offenses in the league. The team wins because of running and defense. Vikings’ fans, on the other hand, confuse their expectations of him and his potential with what he has actually done.

    Whatever Bradford does or doesn’t do this year or what the Vikings do will prove anything about Bridgewater’s value. We have no idea what he was going to do this year (Of course, Vikings’ fans will tell you how great he was going to be, which they always do, in the absence of any actual performance) although there are some Vikings fans who say that he is already elite.

    A late 1st and a 4th for a 28 year old top 15 QB for a team rich on talent on both sides of the ball and a coach that players would run through a brick wall for. I would say the future, like our stadium, looks pretty darn good.

    What people forget is that Speilman wanted Freeman and the coaching staff didn’t. At that time, there was a rift between the GM and the coach. The coaching staff basically revolted and uncharacteristically called plays so that Freeman threw the ball 53 times that game just to prove their point.

    Thankfully, the Wilfs kept the good GM, let go of the terrible staff, and hired one of the best coaches in the league. In Zimmer we trust.

    And not to get too much into it since the situations we’ve obviously very different as far as the team, coaches and expectations were concerned. But, Josh Freeman was signed October 6th and didn’t play until October 21st. Not sure why people think he played immediately after signing.

    Vikings won’t make the same mistake they made when Frazier and Musgrave trotted out Freeman who was a complete embarrassment. Freeman had been with the Vikings 2 weeks at that point.

    Hill lead the Vikings to an 11-0 lead over Seattle week 3 against the Seahawks starters. He’ll start against the Titans.

  70. gettingzygiwithit says: Sep 5, 2016 8:01 PM

    If you told me I could trade a mid to late first rounder and a 2nd to 4th rounder for a guaranteed starting caliber qb (with an arm), I’d make that trade every time.

    1st round picks are busts 1/3.

    Starting QB’s are the most important asset a team can have. If they aren’t playing for you, they can yield great returns via trade.

    It wasn’t supposed to be funny. It’s tragic.

    The only part that is tragic is you posting again more nonsense.

    Is this just a two-year rental for Bradford or does it mean trouble for Bridgewater? Bridgewater’s fifth-year option may cost the Vikes $12 million. Interesting that Bradford wanted out of Philly because he didn’t want to be a placeholder. Vikes can’t afford both.

    Vikings won’t make the same mistake they made when Frazier and Musgrave trotted out Freeman who was a complete embarrassment. Freeman had been with the Vikings 2 weeks at that point.

    Hill lead the Vikings to an 11-0 lead over Seattle week 3 against the Seahawks starters. He’ll start against the Titans.

    Week 3?

    Hawks play Niners week 3.

    LOL

    Vikings, king of preseason.

    Frank b the fake Bears fan or Stellar hmm I mean Tokyo. Stop lying again nobody is called Bradford elite or were they saying Teddy was a MVP candidate before he got hurt. Get professional help.
    ==================================
    lambeaudungbarn said that Teddy was “elite” on another thread.

    You’ve cornered the market on wrong. You just fire out assumptions like a gun with a scope that is off-center, shooting at night through the fog at a moving target. Futility is your defining trait.

    You just auctioned the future for the guy and you’re not even sure he can start to begin the season?
    —————-
    A late 1st and a 4th for a 28 year old top 15 QB for a team rich on talent on both sides of the ball and a coach that players would run through a brick wall for. I would say the future, like our stadium, looks pretty darn good.

    Brady, Brees, Rodgers, Cam, Wilson, Ben, Carr, Smith, Palmer, Dalton, Rivers, Eli, Ryan, Luck, Bortles, Flacco, Cousins, Mariota…

    Top 15 my balls.

    Packer fans crow now but cry over injuries soon enough. Just a fact of life trolls avoid. Minnesota will be a winning team again this year, book it losers!

    Giving up a 1st and a 3rd for Bradford? Whether he’s ready or not you put his ass in there. Otherwise WTF are you doing? He’s not even worth a first. Maybe a 3rd. That’s desperation for ya. Eagles probably would have been happy with just a plain 2nd.

    Spent some time watching last years eagles and a few things I noticed. Pass protection Bradford had was immensely better than what Bridgewater had to deal with. He’s not as accurate, arm strength about the same and isn’t going to buy time like Bridgewater can.

    A definite down grade and not much of an upgrade from Hill.

    Still not sure why Vikes gave up so much for an average QB.
