Mike Glennon may not be the only backup QB we face on our upcoming schedule.


Matt Cassel has been named the starter for the Vikings this weekend. 


Cassel was promoted to starter because Christian Ponder is healing from a fractured rib.


(at least that's the official story...)

Considering our history with such things... not good news.

Sometimes it is better to play a struggling stater than backup

Mike Glennon is a skinny fellow. A Palmer-shot from Kraken might do more than just break a rib.

Well, from what I hear, neither back-up is extremely mobile. That could play GREATLY in our favor if our secondary can take those quick shots away. I mean, Eli started dropping before we got to him. As long as they don't start a back-up for the first time against us..... we should be good. Haha!

at least it won't be Cassel's first start if he is indeed the starter when we play them, that's usually what kills us.

my hope is that we see a change this year.


so far we've done really well against non-mobile QBs and none of those backups are known for being mobile.


one thing about our history against back up QBs is that we usually get them the first week they hit the field. with these potential backups hitting the field now we shouldn't have the problem we have had.


i'm just not as worried about it as i used to be.

I rather face Ponder than Cassel. Cassel looked good in the Preseason. I expect the Vikings offense to be more open in the vertical game this weekend.


The next four games will be against average QBs: Palmer, Cassel/Ponder, Bradford, and Glennon/Freeman. I expect all of them to be on their asses throughout the game.

It's bad that back ups and us are actually a thing.

in past years backups have had all day to throw the ball.. 


this year should prove different with monstrz inc in their face. 




I fail to see how any backups are going to flourish in that environment, unless of course, they get all day to throw the ball.

The last time we played Ponder it didn't turn out so well. We also didn't have a kicker and then you have "the 70 year old man running down the field that saw what he saw". Seriously would've been a highlight reel comeback drive but Mare fugged that up.
