The Minnesota Vikings quarterback position is a disaster, at least to everyone who is on the outside looking in. During the team’s last minute loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9, starting quarterback Christian Ponder threw just one touchdown and one interception, while averaging a dreadful 6.4 yards per completion.
It is fair to ask whether or not the team would have a quarterback change moving forward — perhaps moving back to Josh Freeman — but head coach Leslie Frazier seems willing to stick with Ponder at least for one more week.
“As we speak, I don’t see why we would make a change,” Frazier said, via the Pioneer Press. “Sometimes after ballgames you make emotional decisions, but I don’t see anything that tells me he shouldn’t start against the Redskins.”
Of course, Frazier did leave the door open by saying “as we speak,” so the team still has some wiggle room.
No matter what happens under center in Minnesota moving forward, it appears that next year the team will have a new quarterback. Minnesota is poised for a high draft pick, which will allow them to select one of the top signal-callers in the 2014 NFL Draft class.
