Found October 20, 2013 on The Penalty Flag:
As the quarterback situation in Minnesota has played itself out over the past couple of weeks with Christian Ponder going down to an injury, to Matt Cassel being overwhelmingly average, to this week’s announcement of newly acquired Josh Freeman as the starting quarterback from here on out, it has been safe to wonder what is going through the minds of the Minnesota organization. With only one and a half seasons of inspired play to his name, Freeman turned out to be mostly a disappointment in Tampa Bay... Read more

Is Johnny Football the savior for the Vikings?

Johnny Manziel is a very solid quarterback and can somehow escape a burning car with explosives in it. Well is that what the Vikings need? Shoot after last night’s game, I hope the Vikings are looking for another quarterback come draft time…. Well a parody account on twitter made a pretty awesome photo and it […]

Minnesota Vikings: Do or die time?

This is the week for the Minnesota Vikings where the season can go one of two ways. A loss to the (0-6) New York Giants Monday night will put the Vikings in the running for the number one pick in the 2014 draft. With a win the Vikings may have some hope for the rest of the season. This is the type of game where you can get some momentum going as a team. It’s do or die time Vikings’...

Vikings are making a mistake with Christian Ponder

I am sorry, maybe I am the only one that feels like this but Christian Ponder can manage a game. He might not be a Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck, but the guy can play. He truly reminds me of Alex Smith who has led the Kansas City Chiefs to a 7-0 start. Ponder is […]

Christian Ponder is Josh Freeman’s back-up; Cassel inactive

Could the Minnesota Vikings be luring teams that are quarterback needed ala the St. Louis Rams into watching tonight’s game? If for any reason Christian Ponder gets into the game and does something miraculous then his trade value goes up. I don’t know what the Rams are going to do, but the guys they have […]

Vikings look overmatched and unprepared in loss at Giants

The Minnesota Vikings wanted to evaluate Josh Freeman. They have 10 more games in which to focus solely on whether Freeman can be a long-term solution to the quarterback position. There's little else to be the main focus after an embarrassing performance -- also due in part to Freeman -- on Monday night in New York in a 23-7 loss to the previously winless Giants. The Vikings...

Josh Freeman: Bucs didn’t believe I’m a franchise quarterback

Vikings quarterback Josh Freeman told The Dan Patrick Show that while he was in Tampa  he believed he was a their franchise quarterback and head coach Greg Schiano made it clear that he didn’t agree. “They didn’t see me as the guy,” Freeman said via ProFootballtalk.com. “They didn’t see me as the guy who could get it done and I strongly disagree with that. But at the...

How much can Freeman handle for Vikings?

Will the Vikings be able to hand Josh Freeman a full game plan in his first start for the team after arriving in Minnesota last week? He discusses.

Different team, Different uniform, QB Josh Freeman still stinks

Josh Freeman, the quarterback many in and around Minnesota thought would be the signal caller that would save the season, made his debut this evening. He’s got a new team, a new uniform, no Greg Schiano and guess what? He still stinks. Watching the Monday Night Football broadcast was painful, at times resembling a preseason affair as both teams struggled mightily. However, the...

Giants with stout defense notch first win over the Vikings 23-7

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey– The Giants defensive line kept Vikings new quarterback and addition Josh Freeman very uncomfortable all game. Freeman was very inaccurate completing 20 of his 53 passes with an interception on a wild throw to Giants defensive back Antrel Rolle. Eli Manning finally looked like he had his Giants(1-6) offense under control […]

Giants look for first win vs struggling Vikings

The New York Giants have a pretty good hunch what to expect from Minnesota with newcomer Josh Freeman taking over at quarterback for the struggling Vikings. Adrian Peterson to the left. A.P. to the right. Peterson more often than not in the nationally televised game on Monday night between two of the league's biggest flops this season. The Giants (0-6) are reasonably sure Freeman...

NFL Coaches On The Hottest Seats

We are nearly halfway through the season so it is fair to see which head coaches are sitting squarely on the hot seat.1-GREG SCHIANO, BUCCANEERS:  Tampa hasn't won a game yet this year and everything is falling apart.  The whole Josh Freeman saga made the Bucs look bad.  Losing makes them look worse.  It seems as if his deal is wearing thin at T-Bay and a change could be...

NFC North Game Preview: Minnesota Vikings @ New York Giants

The big story come Monday night for the 1-4 Minnesota Vikings isn’t whether they win or lose, but rather if quarterback Josh Freeman can prove that he is the future gunslinger of the franchise or if he is more of a byproduct that is no better than Matt Cassel or Christian Ponder. While Freeman is still pretty wet behind the ears as far as knowing the playbook and the Minnesota...

The Drunken Minnesota Vikings Chronicles: Week 7

As I sift through the carnage that was the Minnesota Vikings 23-7 loss to the previously winless New York Giants on Monday Night Football in Week 7, I can't help but to think about how I felt about the Vikings' chances prior to the game and how I channeled my inner Lloyd Christmas early Monday afternoon.Christmas, of course, is Jim Carrey's character in the cinematic...
