Remember how Christian Ponder took over for Donavan McNabb? Wasnt it a mysterious injury nobody knew about until midway through the week?
Not sure if its been said but Im excited Cassel is starting, he is a true pocket passer unlike the nervous feet of Ponder who runs to avoid the breeze …. and just by glance I think I saw both starting WRs prefer(between the lines) Cassel?
Remember we only got to see Cassel play behind a second string OL in preseason, which may have been more like third string the way our OL has looked to this point.. I predict BIG WIN 34-17 Vikings and Ponder never plays again …. fingers crossed. Im guessing Jennings and Simpson arent the only two Vikings who have seen better leadership from the Tom Brady apprentice.
