Josh Freeman or Christian Ponder? Hmm, that’s tough. Christian Ponder or Josh Freeman? Sounds like a sink-or-sink opportunity for the Minnesota Vikings. And that’s ironic because Vikings are known for their prowess in shipping. Josh Freeman has agreed to one-year deal worth $3M with the Vikings, according to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports 1. So what happens now? Has anyone seen the Vikings depth chart? Is Josh Freeman QB1? “How do you go from being the face of the franchise to being out on the street in three weeks? That doesn’t make any sense to me,” Mike Ditka said today on the ESPN NFL pregame show. Minnesota was on bye week today, and their next opponent is not very strong at all. With QB issues of their own. The Vikings host the Carolina Panthers with a struggling Cam Newton. NBC Analyst Rodney Harrison: “It’s just time to switch quarterbacks…Cam Newton has struggled time and time again. We’ve seen flash opportunities for him to get better, and just time and time again it just seems like he regresses.” Both teams will enter this pillow fight at 1-3. The Panthers have scored just 74 points this season. Whoever gets the starting job next Sunday for the Vikes: Josh Freeman or Ponder, he might actually look good compared to Newton. This will definitely be the battle of horrible quarterbacking. Ponder has proven himself to be awful, Newton is severely regressing and Freeman is suffering from the curse of #5. Paul M.
