The Vikings’ starting quarterback job is Teddy Bridgewater’s for the forseeable future.
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer told reporters after the game that starter Matt Cassel has several broken bones in his foot, which means the job is Bridgewater’s by default.
Asked if Bridgewater was his starter moving forward, Zimmer replied: “That is correct.”
The rookie did not look overwhelmed in his first NFL action, despite losing to the Saints. It wasn’t the toughest defense to play against, but there were at least some signs of life from their offense.
And since they don’t figure to have Adrian Peterson back on the field anytime soon or ever, any bit of hope on offense is a good thing.
