Per FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, the Minnesota Vikings players were informed this morning that Matt Cassel will start at quarterback over Teddy Bridgewater. The move should take no one by surprise.


Head coach Mike Zimmer is expected to make the official announcement this morning when he meets with the media at 11:00 am.

I think we all knew it was coming at some point, probably this week. Seems like they're just getting this out of the way going into the last week of preseason.

Makes sense to me.

What I just typed is probably an opinion, not a fact. I mean, I'm usually right, so you should maybe assume it is or will be a fact soon, but that's up to you.

Yes. For all the success that Teddy had, his best play came against reserves. He will get there, but he is not there yet.

Cassel has looked solid all preseason. No reason for him not to be the starter.

I bent my wookie...
