When the Minnesota Vikings made the move to sign former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman, many believed that it was only a matter of time until he would become the starter. As it appears, that move may come sooner rather than later.
With Christian Ponder still nursing a rib injury, at least that is what they say, and Matt Cassel putting together dreadful performances, Freeman may be their best option if they want to get another win.
According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, that is exactly what the team is “seriously considering”:

The Vikings best chance to get back in the win column comes on Monday Night Football, where they take on the New York Giants who have yet to find a win.
If the Vikings can’t rally and earn a win against one of the worst teams in the league, then they should officially throw in the towel on the season.
