Tennessee Titans News Links: Just a Number

Your daily serving of Titan linkage! To Nate Washington, the leader and veteran of the Titans receiving core and offense, age is nothing to him. He can still ball, as evidenced by his play on Saturday. The Titans are putting a lot of trust in Jake Locker this season, and for good reason. He has been very successful this preseason, and hopefully that carries over to the regular season. Can it be regular season yet? I'm so ready for Sept. 7th. Thursday is the last preseason game, and we play the Matt Cassel led Vikings. There will be very minor bragging rights available for me as the Vikings...

Vikes Name Cassel Starting QB

The Vikings have named Matt Cassel the starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Rams.Fantasy Spin:Cassel is just keeping the seat warm for Teddy Bridgewater. The 32-year-old was respectable last year for the Vikings, completing 60.2 percent of his passes, averaging 7.11 yards per attempt and posting an 11/9 TD/INT ratio. Minnesota OC Norv Turner was able to get 4,372 yards and 26 touchdowns out of Cleveland's trio of Jason Campbell, Brandon Weeden and Brian Hoyer last season, so he should be able to build a decent passing offense with Cassel under center. Cassel starting shouldn't hurt the...

Mid-day talker: Cassel over Bridgewater is both boring and smart

Based on three preseason games, the Vikings weren’t going to embarrass themselves regardless of which quarterback they chose as their starter going into the season. Both Matt Cassel and Teddy Bridgewater have played pretty well in the tune-ups, meaning the decision for new coach Mike Zimmer could ultimately come down to which was the smarter play. Zimmer doesn’t seem like a boring guy, but he does seem like someone who calculates the percentages and makes corresponding decisions. That can lead to some moves that are both boring and smart — and naming Cassel as the starter over...

Zimmer reportedly tells Vikings that Cassel will start

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer informed his players this morning that Matt Cassel will be the starting quarterback for the season opener against the Rams, according to a FOX Sports report.

Matt Cassel named starting QB in Minnesota

Bridgewater No. 2 Vikings players were informed this morning that Matt Cassel will be the starting QB in Minnesota over Teddy Bridgewater. (Jay Glazer via Twitter) FF Today's Take: Not much of a surprise here. Cassel will begin the season as the Vikings starting QB with rookie Teddy Bridgewater holding down the backup role. Cassel has solid weapons around him including one of the better running backs in the game, but his inconsistent play makes him nothing more than a QB2 for fantasy purposes. Cassel posted 1807 yards, 11 TDs, 9 INTs in nine games last season.
