"If anything that's the difference," Jennings said. "That comes with him having much more experience. He's been in position where he's had to be a starter for years now. He knows what's going on. He's commanding. So is Christian. But as far as throwing the ball, it is what it is. Matt's a very smart guy."
What Matt wasn't, last season, was a very accurate guy. Cassel told reporters Friday that he must protect the ball better after tossing 22 interceptions in his last 17 appearances. Sadly, that's identical to Ponder's pick count in as many games.
If you listened to Wednesday's "Around The League Podcast," the quarterback switch in Minnesota came as no surprise. Injury aside, this was in the mail.
Neither is Cassel, but the Vikings are looking for someone to guide them out of the abyss. If it doesn't happen soon, Minnesota will be in the market for quarterback help in May's draft.
