Given what we've seen of Musgrave's playbook, all freeman needs to learn is when to hand off to Peterson. Guess he got that covered in the last few days...

A real Monday Night clash of the titans. Thanks NFL. Nice matchup.

How in the world did the Vikings get an invite to Monday Night Football? Does America really want to see this freak show of a team on Prime Time??? Somewhere you know coach Childress is just laughing his you know what off...

Frazier is trying keep a straight face when he says 'he has ultimate authority to start' whoever he wants at QB. Hilarious. The Vikings pre-season for next year starts on Monday. They should trade Allen for draft picks, and anyone else long in the tooth that has any trade value. They should be making a short list for a new Head Coach for next season. They had to start Freeman for Monday Nights game or no one would be watching. SKOL VIKINGS!!!! Give us one game to remember for this year.

Ponder's right about one thing... he doesn't know what's going on. And yeah, the part about 'learning' musgrave's playbook IS laughable. Let's see if I can remember it,... oh yeah,... run, run, desperation pass, and out... then, repeat.

LOL!!! It's week #6 in the NFL and this loser club is already on it's 3rd starting QB!!! Their is no doubt the vikings are in complete DESPERATION mode and the funny thing about that is Freeman is not going to help one bit. The defense is by far amongst the absolute worst in the league, a head coach that is totally in over his head coupled with proven loser general manager calling the shots and what you end up with is a desperate loser organization that gets worse and worse with each passing week.

Why is it so exciting to watch this team again go through complete melt-down mode? This is worse than a train-wreck. Who is in charge here? Hello, Al Haig!! Just WHO is in charge of this wreck? Hello Captain Queeg!! Save us, sir, save us!!

Hand to Adrian, dump to check down and run for life . Remember the defense is a siv so please do your best to keep the ball as long as possible on offense= mondays game plan

well why not. at this point we are looking to next year and we need to know if Freeman is the guy of the future. I think he will be good enough to be the guy, really need to update the o-line though
