The Minnesota Vikings have an issue at the quarterback position.

Teddy Bridgewater, who fans seem to like quite a bit, has been activated from the physically unable to perform list and, by all accounts, is ready to play. Case Keenum, the long-time spot-starter who has won the hearts of many in Minnesota over the past several weeks, continues to fend off the former first-round draft selection’s return with quality play and a handful of quarterback wins.

Everyone has an opinion on who the Vikings starting quarterback should be moving forward, but I think we might be asking the wrong question. Instead of asking which of Bridgewater and Keenum should be the team’s starter, we should instead be asking, “Why not start both quarterbacks and get the best of both worlds?”

Purple FTW! Podcast: Vikings-Washington Recap: Ragnarok (ep. 455)

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings offense came alive Sunday in suburban Maryland as the Purple went out and got a statement win on the road against Washington. We saw the best and worst of Case Keenum as the Houston Cougar threw for four straight touchdowns before chasing it with two terrible interceptions to DJ Swearinger. The Zimmer Hellfire Defense staved off a late charge by Washington to close out an entertaining afternoon of football on the Potomac.
