    I would not be surprised to see Ponder on IR list soon. Cassel will QB until Freeman is ready to play. The upside to Freeman is he is young and if he pulls it together could be our QB for a long time. Cassel was signed as a backup and will continue to fill that roll. Stick a fork in Ponder his days are done here.

    At least they've figured it out that our QB situation is far from resolved.

    one of the 3 QBs currently on the roster has to go to make room tho...and at this point, I think I'd rather see more of MBT than Ponder...?

    Horrible decision and once again the Vikings show their complete inability to resolve a QB situation. We go from bad to worse to bad again

    Josh Freeman ws my fantasy football QB 2 years ago. He was OK, though not exceptional. Still, I think this move is a fine one if we want to be competitive with Green Bay, Detroit, and Chicago. Short-term, this move makes sense for me.

    However, I still think we need to draft the best available QB in round 1 of the 2014 NFL draft. I'm hoping Tajh Boys will be there when the Vikings draft. He looked really good against Syracuse!

    The fact that it has taken the organization this long to see that Ponder isn't good is unacceptable. Freeman is probably the best choice for now, but he can't be the option for the future.

    Josh Freeman picks the Vikings

    This was the absolute stupidest frisking thing I have ever seen this franchise do and that says a lot considering the stupid things that have made this team a punch line in the media over the years.

    Think about this:

    He is not good,
    his numbers are no better than Cassels
    They just paid him more than Cassel
    We have played 25% of the games already and he hasn't taken a snap which means their only plan for him is next year and there are at least 8 QBs in the draft with the talent he has that would be cheap to sign and have more upside.

    Team chemistry- what does this do to the locker room now that we have come this far with who we have and finally won a game?

    Whatever I said in the past to get myself the title of company yes man I take it back because this is without a doubt the single worst front office in the league and if you disagree remember- this year we have been beaten by the worst 2 teams in the league over the past 25 years in the browns and lions.

    Stupid ass front office. Screw you.

    Not so sure of this move myself, although the positive is that they appear to have moved past Ponder & it's only a 1 year deal.

    2013 Passes greater than 10 yards;

    Freeman: 27%
    Cassel: 50%
    Ponder: 39%

    2012 Passes greater than 10 yards;

    Freeman: 41%
    Cassel: 38%
    Ponder: 40%
