It’s no secret that the Minnesota Vikings aren’t happy with their quarterback situation. They benched former FSU quarterback Christian Ponder and traded for Josh Freeman (which was a head scratcher). It seems CBS Minnesota has put the contest to a public vote. This is in fact America!
85.93% would rather have a high school quarterback start over Christian Ponder, Josh Freeman, or Matt Cassel. Good luck behind that offensive line you brave high school gunslinger.

BEST OF MAXIM
I have never been more happy for a player than I am right now for Christian Ponder. If Ponder does in fact get the start over Josh Freeman this week, the team will succeed. Ponder will play Green Bay this week and what a great feeling it would be to come back and beat your […]
Josh Freeman looked horrible in his forst game, but today he came out and let everyone know that was just nerves. “Looking back, maybe I was a little too fired up at first,” he said. “There’s definitely a lot of correctable things, things that going into the game I would’ve banked on me being able […]
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Christian Ponder might have his chance at redemption.
Ponder, the embattled third-year quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings, is "more than likely" to start Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers, coach Leslie Frazier said after Josh Freeman reported concussion-like symptoms Tuesday.
Freeman, who started his first game for Minnesota on Monday...
Even though he completed just 20-of-53 passes for 190 yards Monday against the Giants, Josh Freeman will get another start for the Vikings in Week 8 against the Packers.Fantasy Spin:The numbers don't do justice as to just how terrible Freeman was in his first Vikings start. He should improve with more practice time in the Vikings system but shouldn't be near fantasy lineups...
Monday night against the Giants, recently acquired Vikings QB Josh Freeman put together one of the worst games you’ll ever see from a quarterback. Despite his poor performance, Freeman will again get the start in week 8 for Minnesota when they play the Packers, according to Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier.
Frazier attributed Freeman’s...
Rodney Harrison was on with Amani & Eytan NBC Sports Radio and basically said Josh Freeman is faking (you can listen to the full audio here). It is very rare to hear players, even EX-player question each other injuries, but Harrison implies that Freeman seeing that the Vikings aren’t very good pulled a Roberto Duran. I would hope that isn’t the case, but Harrison who on...
Green Bay Packers (4-2) at Minnesota Vikings (1-5)
Josh Freeman was awful last week. He threw 33 incompletions (only 3 of which were drops) on 20 of 53 passing for 190 yards and an interception against a team that was previously one of the worst in the NFL defensively. ProFootballFocus said his performance graded out as the worst they’ve graded since they started in 2008 and it...
Former NFL safety was a guest on NBC Sports Radio with Amani and Eytan and accused Vikings quarterback Josh Freeman of faking a concussion.
Harrison is crazy. This sounds so ridiculous and absurd.

The post Rodney Harrison...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Take your pick. 54 to 13, or 30 to one.
Those were the ratios Monday night for Minnesota Vikings quarterback Josh Freeman and running back Adrian Peterson. For the game, Freeman had 53 pass attempts and was sacked once. Peterson, the reigning MVP had 13 carries for 28 yards.
In the fourth quarter, Freeman threw a staggering 30 passes with 19 incompletions...
Rodney Harrison chuckles at this.
THIS JUST IN: Christian Ponder will start this week for the Vikings. Josh Freeman is out with a concussion.

Ya know when you have a thought in your head but that little voice pops up and says to you "shhhhhh, don't say that to anyone that is living?" Yeah, that doesn't seem to be the case for former NFL safety Rodney Harrison, who is also an analyst for NBC Sports' NFL coverage.
The former New England Patriot and San Diego Charger was on NBC Sports radio discussing...
Rodney Harrison believes that Freeman is faking his concussion because the Vikings are a bad team. Here is what Freeman had to say.
Vikings football is sso much more interesting to talk about this year. I know I am a Colts fan and I root for them, but the Vikings are so terribly mismanaged and the fans are so virulent and angry whenever I say anything about them. Anyways, I will say this about the Colts, just to get it out of the way. I am impressed by how well the season has gone, and I appreciate the way things...
