Minnesota Vikings Quarterback Quandary Creates Potential Mess

The Dive That Launched a 1000 Theories

There's a theory that goes: when you have three quarterbacks, you have no quarterbacks. I don’t know which is more appropriate to say, whether the Vikings have solved their quarterback issue, or if they have further muddied the water?

But as it goes, opportunity knocked and the Vikings organization took full advantage. A former first-round draft choice is dismissed by his current team—no not Mark Sanchez—and the Vikings pounced like true opportunists would expect. This is one of those, no harm, no foul moments—unless you’re Christian Ponder.

The acquisition of Josh Freeman temporarily keeps the restless natives at bay, and it has Minnesota Vikings fans opining their joy at this transaction. There are multiple layers to all of this, so let’s see if one of these is something agreeable to you, the reader. By all accounts, most Vikings fans have been wishing for the Ponder experiment to be over. Perhaps you have received your gift from the football gods.

In the subsequent slides, I examine a few scenarios that could play over the next few weeks or months. As a disclaimer, this is an opinion piece, so if you have something to say, be civil and logical.
