As the Minnesota Vikings prepare to play the Green Bay Packers in U.S. Bank Stadium this Sunday night, the team has yet to announce to the public who will be starting under center for the Vikings’ second game of the 2016 regular season.

Minnesota has two choices for Sunday — Shaun Hill or Sam Bradford. The choice seems obvious to some that the Vikings should go with the recently acquired Bradford.

But would that really be the best choice?

Each player has both positive and negative reasons to support the argument for why he should or should not start. But if Minnesota’s defense played like they did against the Tennessee Titans last week, it really will not matter who the team’s starting quarterback is.

Waking up on Friday morning, it seemed like it would be just like any other Friday that could not go by quick enough in order to begin the weekend. But for people within the NFL community, Friday began with the unexpected news of the passing of former Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals head coach Dennis Green as a result of cardiac arrest.

The Minnesota Vikings have had 34 quarterbacks start games for this illustrious franchise. Andy ranks them #1 all the way through #34. There are a few Hot Takes in the rankings, most notably who’s at #32, #7, and #2 overall. (That’s a tease)

The Ranking Criteria Include (But are not limited to):
• Statistics
• Short Greatness vs Extended Averageness
• Lofty Expectations vs None
• The Grandma Scale™
• Andy’s Personal Opinion

So enjoy the rankings! If you agree or disagree, please let us know in the comment section or hit me up on Twitter @AndyCarlsonShow or @PurpleForTheWin!

Jake Reed Open Arms

[Note From Adam: Lindsey Young is a talented writer and true Minnesota Sports fan. Her articles around the internet have caught my eye on many occasions over the last couple of years, so I was thrilled when she reach out to Vikings Territory offering to write a guest article or two. Lindsey’s first contribution far exceeded my expectations as she sat down with one of my favorite Vikings for a one-on-one conversation. My gratitude and praise might not be enough to convince her to stick around for good, so please be sure to let her know what a great job she did in the comments section.]


Three Deep.

Use these words with Minnesota Vikings fans, and they will know exactly what you’re talking about.

In 1998, Cris Carter, Jake Reed and Randy Moss impressed the league as one of the most successful receiving trios to ever play the game.

But where are they now? On Nov. 7, Jake Reed sat down to share with fans about his time as a Viking, his insight on the current team, and his life post-football.
