Rookie Bridgewater nipping at his heels Matt Cassel, a 10th-year veteran with 68 NFL starts, is the heavy favorite to start entering camp after re-signing on a two-year, $10.5 million contract in March. But Teddy Bridgewater got some first-team reps during offseason practices and acquitted himself well. The Vikings report to camp Thursday, but Bridgewater arrived early to work with teammate Kyle Rudolph, among others, at Arizona Cardinals star Larry Fitzgerald's annual workouts at the University of Minnesota.

Vikings' Matt Cassel unsurprised by Zimmer's confidence vote

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer wasn't required to make a declaration before training camp about Matt Cassel's status. He figured, though, he'd give the media a good sound byte.

Teddy Bridgewater Doesn’t Want To Talk About Quarterback Competition

Sounds like Bridgewater isn't going to really be the most quotable quarterback ever. BUST! Training camp starts this week/ weekend (OH DEAR G-D IN HEAVEN THANK YOU) for the Minnesota Vikings, and with the opening bell of that comes also the beginning of one of the biggest post-draft issues of our offseason: the quarterback competition, and who will be our starter come Week 1 at St. Louis. (SPOILER ALERT from my imminent prediction piece: we play football.) In theory we have three vying for the top spot: veteran Matt Cassel, rookie Teddy Bridgewater, and dude who's married to a hot chick...

Minnesota Vikings News And Links, 7/7

Your daily news round up and open thread Hi kids, hope you had a good weekend, and all the freedom you could stand.  Mine was good, thanks for asking.  If you're a man, and didn't grill and/or smoke something, Richard Simmons is in the next room. You can turn in your man card to him there. Since last we had an open thread... CCNorseman compared and contrasted Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder from last season. Everybody in the NFL thinks Matt Cassel kind of stinks. How the NFL thought the late season Vikings-Ravens game wasn't one of the top games of the year is beyond us. From elsewhere...

Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel – Comparing and Contrasting the 2013 Season

The folks over at Pro Football Focus have boiled down their data from the 2013 season and have shared some interesting insights into Ponder and Cassel’s performances last year. I don't mean to dig up the Ponder horse here so we can beat it again, but Pro Football Focus released a very interesting article yesterday that boils down a lot of their game data about Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel.  So naturally I felt compelled to share it all with you and offer my take on it.  The article explains the difference between their grading system, and the typical "QB Rating" statistic that many...

Matt Cassel Not Too Highly Thought Of

Matt Cassel Not Too Highly Thought Of

With the selection of Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, it became even more obvious that Matt Cassel was not the long-term answer at quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings. The 32-year old Cassel opted out of his contract this off-season, only to sign a two-year pact just before the start of free agency. At best, he's seen as a "bridge" quarterback until Bridgewater is ready to go. For as long as he's been in the league, he isn't getting a whole lot of respect league-wide, either. Mike Sando of ESPN.com did a poll of 26 league officials and...
