Josh Freeman: savior of Minnesota Vikings shipwreck?

Josh Freeman may be the master at staring down his receivers (and therefore often incompleting passes) and he’s suffering from that recent curse of the jersey #5, but he’s also designated the savior in Minnesota.

Minnesota Vikings: Week 6 Recap

In my week 6 preview, I said the Vikings had to do three things well in order to win on Sunday; get great play from their offensive line, get good pressure on Cam Newton while containing his running game, and get good play from Matt Cassel at quarterback with an emphasis on zero turnovers. None of these three things happened, and it led to a long day for the team in purple.The Vikings...
