Vikings QB Matt Cassel didn’t do much to inspire in the Vikings’ opener, but Teddy Bridgewater didn’t do enough to make the Vikings change plans.
So according to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Vikings are going to stick with Cassel this week, before deciding whether to give Bridgewater any work with the ones beyond that.
“We’ll see after this week,” Zimmer said of Bridgewater getting a chance with starters. “I don’t know.”
Cassel completed 5-of-6 passes for 62 yards against the Raiders in his one series. Bridgewater was 6-of-13 passes for 49 yards, taking a pair of sacks. If Bridgewater can clean some things up, it’s hard to imagine them not giving him a shot, as he gives them their best chance for stability at the position in decades, the story points out. We think so too, ranking him 26th on our list.
