FANTASY FOOTBALL BREAKING NEWS: MATT CASSEL BEATS OUT TEDDY BRIDGEWATER FOR STRATING QB JOB

                                                

Matt Casssel and not rookie Teddy Bridgewater will start for the Minnesota Vikings under center for Week 1 after a training camp battle that slanted toward the veteran's direction.  Both Casssel and Bridgewater played very well in the preseason, with the Louisville rookie sporting a 4/0 TD/INT ratio.  However it was widely assumed Bridgewater needed to drastically outplay Cassel to earn the job which was not the case as the former New England Patriot and Kansas City Chiefs veteran logged 367 yards and two scores with 1 INT in his preseason outings.

Analysis:  Norv Turner as the OC makes any QB at least mildly interesting but we have seen the Cassel Show before and it is not overly impressive.  While the Vikes can win a few games with Cassel, this has all the makings of a classic "keep the seat warm" situation before Bridgewater gets in there.
