Now it's up to Frazier to make sure Cassel is the starter going forward

One defensive play like that last one in each of the previous two games and we'd be 3-1. But seriously, the D was getting owned all the way to the red zone. A fortunate break saves the day.

In the end, im a die hard so from the start of the game whistle to the game ending whistle, this win works for me... hopefully we can find with the BYE week we can find that PEICE that secures a win earlier into the 4th quarter, but baby steps and now were standing, and after the bye week we need to be running!!! SKOL VIKINGS WOOOOHOOOO!!

The Strib considers a Pittsburgh fumble a big stop by the defense?? Ehh. azviking101..Frazier told WCCO that Ponder is still the starter. Back to losing in 2 weeks.

I just hope they get some sense and use Cassel going forward. It was obvious right from the beginning that he was reading the defense before the ball was snapped and was much more in control than Ponder ever was. They should have to ponder much on whether to use Cassel or Ponder.
