Well I see the viqueens picked up another recapped tire, get ready for more turnovers and arm rolls and can't win the big one! Cullpepper J.R. is in the building, where is Jeff George when you need him! WE, yes I am a fan, should have spent the money on the secondary, and let Cassel play. Now MBT is gone who probably has a better arm and IQ than anyone on our roster!!!!!!!!!!! Way to go Spielman !!!!!!!!!!!!!

As much as I would like to be positive I think the realistic view of what's happening now is not very good. We start 1-3 with a lousy pass defense and now we end up with a complicated quarterback controversy to add to this mess. This is not good. Situations like this do not usually turn out well. In summary I would just like to state in words: God help us.

Not starting Cassel, after his performance last week, would be classic coaching futility.

I thought Frazier was going to be different, but we get the same old line. If he doesn't start Cassell he should be fired on the spot. Way to take the bull by the horn and lead the team with sharp and decisive decisions.

Shouldn't be any controversy... Cassel starts, and plays, as long as he's the hot hand and they're winning games; Freeman is brought along as expected, given everything that's going on... Ponder??? Too bad they let MB-T go, and kept Ponder. Oh well, what would the Vikings be, without some inept coaching/GM decisions. We can only hope that the two veteran QB's can figure out ways to KEEP WINNING! Frazier can hope he still has a job - next season, along with Musgrave. Bye Christian! GO VIKINGS!!!

It would take Freeman the rest of the season to completely understand the Vikings offense? Really? During any Vikings game I never see more than 10-15 different plays called. It's not uncommon to see the same play called out of the same formation on the same drive. Very frustrating.

How hard can it be to learn Musgrave's offense? On first down you hand off to Peterson. Then on 2nd and 11 you drop back and look for Rudolph and if he's not open, you throw it away. Then on 3rd and 11 you throw a 5 yard pass before punting it on 4th down

I must have been watching a different game a couple weeks ago then some people, because it sure looked like a much livelier offense to me. Ponder was the one holding the offense back because he can't throw and make good decisions. They'll open it up more with Cassel.

I have some breaking news on Josh Freeman... He sucks... and its not just his head coaches fault. He sucked under the previous one too. Also, the recipe for a QB to improve in a well coached offense sure as heck isn't Bill Musgrave.
