Viking to start struggling QB Josh Freeman Sunday night against Packers

According to ESPN's Pardon the Interruption, the Vikings will again start awful QB Josh Freeman this Sunday night against the Packers. As Brandon has already pointed out, Freeman was amazingly terrible in the team's Monday night loss in New Jersey. 

Why Minnesota is doing this? I don't know. Matt Cassel is no elite starter, but I think their chances of winning are better with him. He started for a winner a few years ago when the Chiefs were good, and he's already won a game for the Vikes this year. But, it's their choice. If they wanna lose, I'm fine with that.

As I recall, we gave Freeman his first win as a starter when they Bucs upset us in 2009. He also played well against us in our 15-1 season in 2011.

I'm confident we'll beat them, but something about Freeman sort of worries me. He seems to play decently against us. But I don't think he has timing down just yet with Minny.

I was listening to the BS report recorded just before the Monday night game and both Simmons and Cousin Sal said they liked Freeman and were expecting a good game. I think the memories of him being good back in 2009-2011 are clouding the evaluation on him. He's been awful for the past season and a half. His accuracy was so bad against the Giants that I can't believe he can fix all the mechanics that need fixing in a few days.
