The biggest question for the Minnesota Vikings going into their 2016 regular season opener against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday is who will be starting at quarterback. According to the man making the decision, nobody is going to have the answer to that question until Sunday.
Coach Zimmer says that he won't publicly announce Sunday's starting QB. He will tell the team when he's made the decision.— Minnesota Vikings (@Vikings) September 7, 2016
At his media availability session on Wednesday, Zimmer said that he was not going to be declaring who his starting quarterback is going to be. He said when he knows, he’ll let the team know, but it doesn’t appear that we’re going to know until right before kickoff.
The Vikings acquired Sam Bradford from the Philadelphia Eagles on 3 September, and while he says he feels more comfortable with the offense than he did when he first arrived in Minnesota, he’s still learning it at a breakneck pace. Hill, who will likely be serving as the backup sooner rather than later, has been in Norv Turner’s system for a couple of years now, and is certainly more familiar with things as it stands right now.
Minnesota didn’t bring Sam Bradford in to sit behind Shaun Hill, though. . .we know that. Will Bradford be sitting behind Shaun Hill on Sunday afternoon? Apparently we’re not going to know until Sunday morning.
