Surprising no one, the Minnesota Vikings have named Matt Cassel the starter for the season at quarterback and informed the team this morning, according to Jay Glazer.

Like Glazer points out, Cassel has done very well in the preseason and has done nothing to indicate he shouldn’t have the job, from the perspective of the current coaching staff. This announcement mostly formalizes what we already knew, as Bridgewater took precious few snaps with the, and only then when it was late in the process.
