    Bethel-Thompson should be the backup QB, While Cassel plays starter. Ponder belongs as the 3rd string.
    ….Only on the Vikings can we get it so @s$ backwards on the most important position in all of Football.

    • Tommy Yarbrough

      Just a liiiiitle bit off, Ragnar. MBT should be the starter, Cassel the backup, and Ponder 3rd string. From the stats I’ve seen on MBT, he’s very, very close to being an absolute BEAST at the position.

  • Viking_4Life74

    Isn’t it funny how one position, the most important one; hijacks this team every year. Imagine if we had a top Russel Wilson or Colin Kaepernick behind centre. Give MBT a chance and lets see what he can do. We already know what Ponder can’t do .. The Vikes are wasting the best years of AP career. This could be a championship team – They have the pieces, less Ponder.

  • Daniel Laxen

    You obviously don’t understand football if you believe that MBT should be the starter on this team!…There’s a reason he left UCLA in college…There’s a reason the 49ers cut him a couple years ago…There’s also a reason he’s the 3rd string QB on the Vikings. He’s not that good! Playing vs. scrubs, want to bes, and straight healthy bodies for preseason is one thing. Playing vs. the best players in the world is quite another…I hear people say give him a chance. That’s BS. He’s had a chance at 2 pro franchises to show what he’s capable of. The fact is I believe the Vikings waste a roster spot keeping a 3rd QB with Joe Webb also making the roster. Should the Vikings have to use their 3rd string QB, Joe Webb knows the system and if they are that injury riddled they are doomed anyway…That spot could be used for Antoine Winfield should he desire to take a pay cut and I’m not sold on our nickel CB and depth is always a concern at every position…

    So you don’t know who Teddy plays for? You can be touted then! You watch him on you tube!

    • Adam B. Carlson

      I apologize. It slipped my mind while I was talking and tried to smooth it over. I know it didn’t smooth over as well as I had hoped, but I hope I still got my point across about how good that kid is.
