TEDDY OR CASE: Who should start?

It’s the hottest debate surrounding the Vikings right now.

The points are clear on both sides of aisle.

One side argues, “Keenum is just as good as Teddy ever was,” “He’s basically 5-2 and has won four games in a row,” “Case gets the job done so roll with him,” and “the Vikings have chemistry so don’t mess with it.”

The other side argues, “Teddy has a higher ceiling and can win us a Super Bowl,” “Bridgewater was an average starter in 2015 but has better pieces around him now,” and “You need to make a decision on him for next year, so start him now and see what you have.”

It’s a very interesting debate. Both sides make valid points. Plus, it seems like everyone has an opinion.

Whatever your opinion may be, Keenum and Bridgewater are similar quarterbacks. They both make smart decisions, take care of the ball, extend plays with their feet, and make plays through the air. Even their Pro Football Focus grades are similar.

So, what really sets them apart?

Anthony Barr breaks his silence, claims Aaron Rodgers started the exchange.

On October 15th, a hit by Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr left Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers with a broken right collarbone. As Rodgers walked off the field, TV cameras caught him cursing at Barr.

Rodgers later claimed on Conan O’Brien’s late-night TV show that he was responding to Barr, who gave him the finger and “suck it” sign after the hit. This morning, video surfaced that seemed to confirm half of Rodgers’ account. The video shows Barr grabbing his groin area as he faced the Packers sideline.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had some venting to do last night on Conan O’Brien’s late-night show on TBS.

During his appearance on “Conan” Thursday night, Rodgers told the wild-haired host that he had thirteen screws inserted in his collarbone to repair the break that was caused by a hit from Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr. He also provided some insight into his verbal altercation with Barr as he left the field.

“I rolled out to my right I threw the ball and I got tackled and kind of slammed on the ground. I looked over at him as I walked off the field. Cameras caught me saying something to him, but what they missed was him [motioning] finger… suck it sign.”
