Minnesota Vikings: Why Ponder and Cassel should be worried

The Minnesota Vikings quarterback situation is in need of a drastic upgrade. Christian Ponder, their first round draft pick back in 2011, has shown that he’s not the answer for the organization, and Matt Cassel is an average quarterback at best. This is why the team drafted Teddy Bridgewater in the 2014 NFL draft hoping that this time perhaps they hit on the right guy. If I had...

Rightfully so, the Vikings haven’t had a franchise quarterback since Daunte Culpepper (Brett Favre barely counts, people) and after the failed experiment of Christian Ponder, Ziggy Wolf is left looking for answers. Well...
