Vikings host Rams tonight

Young QB’s expected to get long looks

The Minnesota Vikings had it all working in their favor.  A bulked up team, a new sold out stadium and optimism to spare.  Then Teddy went down.  Enter Shaun Hill.

While Hill will probably not play tonight against the LA Rams, you will see a lot from  Joel Stave and Brad Sorensen, one of which could be under scrutiny from other teams looking for a backup.

In a move that really surprised no one, the franchise released veteran center John Sullivan after Joe Berger beat him out for the starting center job.

“Our entire organization appreciates everything that John Sullivan has done for this franchise,” GM Rick Spielman said. “Sullivan led our team, not only with how he played the game, but also with how he handled himself in our community. We wish John Sullivan and his family nothing but the best as they move forward.”

Quarterback Position Cassel’s to lose

It would seem that the Christian Ponder era is pretty much over after three hardly inspiring season at the helm of the Vikings exemplified by last seasons nine games played highlighted by seven touchdowns to nine interceptions.

Over the summer, the organization drafted the 31st overall pick, Louisville arm Teddy Bridgewater and Cassel had a decent season in the nine games he played in completing 153 of 254 for 1,807 yards, 11 TD’s and nine touchdowns.  At 32, Cassell will be the bridge between the present and the future but rest assured, if he comes out stumbling, calls for Bridgewater to start will begin to howl in the North Star State!
