Everyone knew that Flynn was good to go and Carroll chose Wilson. He said those things to try and protect Flynn's ego in case he needed him.
He never once said Flynn would be starting under any circumstance other than Wilson being hurt.

The bottom line to this whole discussion is if Teddy lights it up in the practice/pre-season, there is a good chance he will start day 1 (ala Wilson). If he needs more time, Cassel will be our QB; I just desperately hope we don't rush the process.
The kid will either be ready or he won't. We don't have to put the pressure on him if he isn't, and we shouldn't.
Period.Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self interest.

And to go along with the gun example,
You don't want someone hunting with you until he has learned to use a gun safely. Otherwise you end up out there with a Chaney. :-)Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.
bridgewater will be expected to start
I think wit tha o we have and hopefully a much improve D i could see TBW starting ain't like we gon need tha kid to throw the ball 40/50 times a game. And Wilson have a good supporting cast in SEA and really tha vikings run that same type of o just missing tha d part so if Zimmer can bring a top 5 d here i see any QB have success wit tha vikings,

Start him against 1st team defenses in the preseason. That should answer some questions.
It's not like he isn't going to be learning at training camp and meetings. Seems like a smart guy who has the drive to work. Can't ask for anything more from a rookie who hasn't seen the field yet.814
i think our o line will be good this year ...there might be more than one changed ...cant wait to see what zimm does ....i think if he looks the part he starts ...its not like he will get destroyed back there ...i can see us running a lot eary in the season to take some pressure of teddy ....the best vway to learn is under center ...we have the best back in the leaguea big target at TE and a savy vet in jennings c patterson is explosive ..all this should help ...get the reps ...and if he is riding the pine he isnt getting the reps with the first team in practice ...so push him to start
