Lets be honest here, the vikings haven't had a stable quarter back for a LOOONNG time and hopefully this year that is going to change. Step one of the solution is to get Matt Cassel back (bear with me here, ill explain later). Step 2 get one of the top four quarter backs in the draft being either Jonny Manziel Blake Bortles Teddy Bridgewater or Derek Carr. Step three bench him for one or two years.
The vikings have not had a good solid franchise QB in a long time and for all these years ive been wondering "WHY" then suddenly a flash of NFL history went through my mind and i realized why, and its that we wanted results fast and were rushing people like Ponder to get on the field and win. (this is one of the reasons i believe Frasier got fired by the way). if you look at all time greats like Joe Montana Tom Brady and sad but truthfuly Aaron Rodgers and countless others they all did not start the second they were drafted and frankly I dont think anyone should, NFL defenses and offenses take time to learn and an even longer to learn how to utilize them. But anyways what the vikings can do to start rebulilding into a solid team is get Matt Cassel back. He wont lead us to superbowls or maybe even playoffs but he can play and serve as a figurehead while our true franchise QB (the one we wind up drafting) will have plenty of time to study and learn our offense. I know it sounds crazy but would you rather wait two years and then be the next patriots or immediately start our rookie QB and go through the Ponder era all over again (and trust me it will happen again if we dont do this). Andrew Lucks only come around once in a while and i dont think the vikings will be getting one like him this draft.
So comment what you think about what i just said do you agree or disagree, thanks.
