You got to be kidding me. I'm so sick of seeing Ponder running around looking lost and scared it ain't funny. I'ld rather watch Freeman throw picks.
Ed Werder tweeted that Freeman is expected to start but I would lean towards Simpson having the better knowledge. I'm not surprised. Has Freeman even been cleared to practice? Regardless he lost another week of practice. I'd expect him to start against Washington though.
I wont waste another three hours of my time watching if Ponder is the QB.
Freeman would at least provide some interest in an otherwise irrelevant game.
The Vikings have served up a main course of crap for their fans this year. Will it be the SOS week after week ?
I am not real excited about watching Ponder start another game either, but I can't say I would be real surprised.
My preference would be to put in Freeman, even if he is ill-prepared, just because I would like to see him get as much time behind center for the remainder of the year as possible. But, if winning is still an objective, the rationale to use Ponder isn't hard to understand.
I expected Ponder.
They will want Freeman to be as ready as he can for his next "first game", so I'm betting he has been cramming on our offense instead of heavy practice, to be ready for week 10.
Cassel is better than Ponder, and Cassel is mediocre.
For those fans who do not understand the importance of a good quarterback, the Vikings are making a good case study for future reference.
