Leslie Frazier, Matt Cassel, Christian Ponder Talk About the Josh Freeman Signing


Now let me present a series of quotes related to the recent well-publicized Josh Freeman signing from various people affiliated with the Vikings.

Leslie Frazier when asked if Freeman will have a chance to compete for the starting job:

That’s part of the equation. That’s definitely on the table. We’ll see how well he progresses and how well he picks up our offense.

Frazier on the negotiation with Freeman:

It wasn’t much of a sales job that needed to be done.

Christian Ponder on what the Freeman signing means to him:

I’m just focused on what I can do. We’ll see how it plays out and I’m a man of faith so I believe that God’s got my future in his hands. I don’t know what that means. I’m trying to get healthy. I think ultimately [the Freeman signing] is going to make me a better quarterback.

Ponder on Frazier’s public statements expressing support of him:

Leslie is a man of faith, so I’m going to take him for his word. I believe what him and Rick say.

Matt Cassel on where this leaves him:

It’s not anything that’s overwhelming or surprising, it’s one of those things that’s the NFL. I haven’t been told anything. I don’t expect anything. I’ll just continue to work hard and be ready to play just like I was last week when I found out on Friday.

And, Leslie Frazier on Christian Ponder’s future with the team:

I think Christian still has a bright future here with our football team. It may not look like that on the surface, but Christian’s a professional.

And who will play Sunday against Carolina?

We’re going to see how Christian does on Wednesday. But between he and Matt [Cassel], they’ll be the guys that are starting the game. We’re not going to try and get Josh up and going for this ballgame.

Oh.

    It’s hard not to like an eloquent spokesman like Frazier…Jeeze! The more he talks the more I wonder how he ever got a job. I wonder if he took lessons from the Leon Spinx School for the Loquacious? Emmitt Smith took the same class!
