Smart imo.
I think it's the smartest move. What would that mean for Teddy or Sam then?

Agreed. He had said something along the lines that they will most likely let Bradford walk, but could possibly re-sign Teddy if he came at a good price. I am sure that part is more speculation than anything, but it makes sense to me.

Yeah. Tell Teddy that they're gonna let Keenum prove it again all next year but there's a chance Teddy could still start if Keenum regresses.

If this is the case I bet Teddy will walk, but I know for one I won't miss him.

No team, not even the Browns will want Teddy as a Starting QB.

Yep. It is to risky the pay the guy starting QB money. Just being honest here, but no one really knows what they will be getting in Teddy. He is unproven and of course, the injury. But on that note, I would gladly take him back on a cheap prove-it deal, just not as the starter.

I wouldnt say that. Teddy wasnt horrible with the Vikes, and the coaches didnt let him call audibles, or take shots downfield. The Vikes took a HUGE chance on a injury prone QB, who is better then Teddy but still a chance. It didnt work out for us, but I can see a team desperate for a QB getting and starting Teddy right away. Its what we would do if we didnt have case next year.

I could too, in fact I could see it being Cleveland.

I could see it except for one reason -- Cleveland has two of the top 5 picks, and this is a deep, talented quarterback class. Either Sam Darnold or Josh Rosen would seem to be the next Browns quarterback, but you never know. They could trade one or both picks. I just don't see it.

Arizona could be a landing spot. Washington if they don't re-sign Cousins. Denver?

Go ahead. I dare you.

This now becomes the hottest topic in Viking land.

I’m not blaming this loss on Keenum, but maybe this game is a sign he’s not our guy. I don’t think there is a “right” answer here, so I’m going to put trust in our coaches and Rick to make the best decision.

I'd stick with Keenum. He's the reason we were 13-3. Heck, I djnt even think Aaron Rodgers would have led this team to 13-3.

Not blaming Case. This was an A$$ Whoopin.
However, it was very telling that he is too often late on throws and behind on throws. He doesn't have outstanding arm talent.
Trust Rick??? Who is the last good QB we have had?
40 year old Favre. Culpepper. Cunningham.
We need one badly in Minnesota

Give the reigns to Teddy, or draft a 2nd round QB.

Case Keenum and his bad football intangibles is annoying. The defense made him okay.

If it fails next season and we fall below 8 wins, we draft the QB of the future .

That being said, we are probably going to franchise tag him. And I will hate most of it.

The defence threw the ball for him to theilen for over a 1000 yards? ( first since 09 by a real qb with Farve ), did they throw his 26 tds to 7 ints to? (miles past Teddys best season). If you think Teddys football intangibles are better than Case's id say there is no proof and purely based of some "potiential" I don't see. Sounds like a good way to win a superbowl, we should have a thread on what we are going to do about our defence. I know our offence wasn't good and relied on our defence, WE KNEW THIS and our strength of our team failed miserably and what? we think this is just a bad game and is magically going to correct itself with a better qb, come on.

To say we should let case walk and let teddy take over is a joke. You have trust in Teddy who’s done nothing special with this team and we have no idea if he can’t even play worth a damn but we wanna give up on the guy that brought us to the NFC championship? Seriously? I don’t get it. I’m done for the night
