Josh Freeman has already been named the Vikings starting quarterback for the game on Sunday Night Football against the Green Bay Packers (check out the Minnesota Vikings at TicketCity if you’re looking to go to the game.) Despite Freeman’s terrible performance against the New York Giants, the team seems to want to give him every chance to win the job going forward despite a healthy Christian Ponder on the sidelines acting as his backup.
Minnesota will have to play much, much better football in order to compete with the Packers. Not only was Freeman disappointing last week, but the offensive line and Adrian Peterson both struggled to get things going. Look for Cassel to be inactive once again and Ponder to be Freeman’s backup.
Let’s hope that Freeman can pick up the playbook and get on page with his receivers better by Sunday night.
