Mike Zimmer Doesn’t Know His Starting QB For Sunday… Suuuuuuure
#Vikings coach Mike Zimmer, who your QB is?
“You’ll have to wait til Sunday.”
Do you know?

Is Mike Zimmer the worst liar in sports history? I mean that’s probably Rafael Palmeiro, but that’s not here nor there. We all know Sam Bradford is going to be a starter when Minnesota meets Green Bay on Sunday. Why does Zimmer think he needs to be all sorts of coy going into the week? Oh my god Green Bay is going to know my quarterback even though Mike McCarthy said yesterday they are scouting for Bradford at quarterback. How about a Vikings beat reporter say Bradford took all over the first-team snaps today at practice. It’s pretty fucking obvious he’s going to be the starter. What is the point of playing this cat and mouse bullshit? I understand this is a ‘football guy’ move, but this is annoying when we all know what’s going to happen on Sunday.
The best part about this is Zimmer would say something like ‘We are doing this out of the respect for Shaun Hill.’ That’s probably a direct quote. Sneaky great that Zim is a big Redman guy per Pardon My Take. That makes all the sense in the world.
