11:10 AM ET 02.24 | The Minnesota Vikings lack a quarterback who is capable of taking their offense to the next level, so they will be spending the offseason looking to bolster the position and add a player that can get the ball to their playmakers on the outside and take some pressure off of running back Adrian Peterson. During an appearance on the NFL Network Monday morning, Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer commented on the Vikings need for a quarterback and said that the team is working hard to find one.

What? NFL teams need a competent QB? Geez, now you tell me.
OK, here's the plan. Instead of just looking for a QB like the other QB needy teams, let's look hard for a QB.
See, this head coaching stuff ain't so difficult after all.

This is a stock article for the Vikings. They just change the picture to the current head coach.

As a Vikes fan, there is a sad but true fact...The team has been looking for a QB since Tarkenton left during the Jimmy Cater administration (and dont say Culpepper would qualify as a good QB). Maybe Tommy Kramer, but the only thing the team would win with him at the helm is a beer pong tourney.

Cousins

Don't see it he is a capable back up but I don't believe he is starting material plus teh Skins have him at a cheap price for 2 more seasons

If they don't get Bortles, Bridgewater, or Manziel at #8, they'll draft defense in the first round and QB in the second.

That's reassuring.

Or as I keep saying they'll go bridge QB with Vick or someone with starting experience takea QB day 3 and see what happens in 2015 when the next great QB draft comes
