Ah sorry I missed that. It will be interesting how they play this one, you could go with an older "safer" vet like a Fitzpatrick or maybe take a flier on a Kaepernick or RG3. There's also a few guys who have shown some promise but very inconsistently, guys like Keenum or Yates maybe who I assume would be cheaper options.


It will definitely be interesting to see how they handle it and if they try to go with a one year contract or something longer.

I'd actually love Ryan Fitzpatrick as a backup.

He's one of those tweener guys. Not quite good enough to be a franchise guy, but definitely capable of keeping your team above water for a few weeks while your starter heals.

Last year, I always felt like the season was over if Bradford got hurt. Shaun Hill looked like he was throwing a medicine ball.

Of course, Fitzpatrick is likely going to cost nearly starter's money.

I think your assessment of Fitzpatrick is fair. However, I think his well documented carelessness with the football would likely be a major hurdle for the current Vikings coaching staff. My sense is they'd prefer a guy who doesn't give it up, even if that means he throws for 150.

This might change under Schurmer, but count me in that camp that thinks such a deviation would be a surprise.

Keenum is a good pick up. The guy is tough and is a great team guy. He'll work well with Sam. What he lacks in talent he makes up for in heart. Fans will love the guy.

I like him better thabn most of the backups we've had in the last 10+ years.

And it's not even close. I really wish they'd extend Bradford.

Jesus Christ. Is it really that hard for Zimmer to see that Bradford is way better than Teddy probably ever will be?


Yeah, I don't see TB getting truly healthy again. And I wasn't 100% happy with him to begin with.


Exactly !!! OF TB comes back what do you have really? A inexperienced injured QB who still reads Defenses slow, has no accurate Mid or Deep passing ability who is two years behind in his development. If he Can't return to playing status this season it's over for him.

It would be incredibly exciting to see him return to playing status this year!
