02:20 PM ET 10.10 | The Minnesota Vikings recently made the move to sign former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman, but we know that he will not get the immediate start this week against the Carolina Panthers as he continues to learn the new offense. That would leave the Vikings once again rolling with either Matt Cassel or Christian Ponder under center, and reports state that the team is expected to go with Cassel as the Week 6 starter despite Ponder being medically cleared for his broken rib.

Freeman will get a chance prove that he sucks less than Cassel.

From the Minneapolis fish wrap, Ponder told a reporter he was told who will start but said he'll let Frazier answer. Ponder didn't look happy.

I'll say this: All 3 QBs on the roster have major questions, however all 3 are miles ahead of what they put out there in the playoffs last year (Joe Webb).

We'll just have to see how this plays out. Frazier says less to reporters than Hoodie.

It's also better than what the Cardinals ran out there at QB last year.
