This is not a Sam vs. Teddy thing, I promise.

Our next installment of our Vikings Free Agency Primer series: the quarterbacks. Check out our other primers on tight ends, defensive ends, cornerbacks, and safeties.

At the top, the 2017 Vikings quarterback situation is cut and dried: Sam Bradford is the starter. Any prospects for a Bradford/Bridgewater training camp competition—or full-on reclamation of the starting job by Teddy—have been squashed by the speculation Bridgewater will miss all of the 2017 season, the reports he still has not resumed football activities, and the declaration by Mike Zimmer that Bradford has earned the right to be the starting quarterback.

So we wish Teddy well in his rehab, hope his career isn’t completely over, and perhaps even talk ourselves into the idea that he will return to practice at some point next year. But until we have a reason to believe otherwise, Sam Bradford is the Vikings’ starting quarterback.

However, the position isn’t settled. Bradford’s backup last year—Shaun Hill—is a free agent, and early indications are he will either retire or not be re-signed. And with Bradford’s injury history combined with the Vikings’ porous offensive line, having a capable backup is more important than ever. We’ll look at a couple ways the team could handle that.

Some of us have been a Vikings fan for a few years.  Some for a few more.  Some for a few decades, and some have been supporting the team since the very beginning.

No matter how long you have been a fan of the purple and gold, however, we all have one thing in common:  heartbreak.

Reminders of our most memorable moments are everywhere, and they all sting.

One reminder this offseason comes in the form of an NFL.com list of the greatest play calls in NFL history.  The short list includes some fun one, but Paul Allen himself gets the top “honor” in this list for a certain meltdown during a certain Arizona Cardinals game following a certain Josh McCown pass.

It might sting to watch it again, but something tells me you have thick enough skin to handle it, Vikings fans.
