Most Vikings fans felt that Matt Cassel would be the Vikings starting quarterback on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, and today we got confirmation of that.
Minnesota’s head coach, Leslie Frazier addressed the media today and declared Cassel the starter with Christian Ponder as the backup. quarterback. Newly acquired quarterback Josh Freeman will be inactive for the game on Sunday, but will no doubt be watching eagerly and waiting for his opportunity.
For at least this week, Matt Cassel will get another chance to prove that he’s a better option than Christian Ponder. Although that opportunity may not last long with Freeman breathing down his neck.
