Frazier: 'No urgency' to name starter, Cassel gets first-team reps


Keep holding on, Vikings fans, Leslie Frazier will announce the starting quarterback sometime this week -- just not today.

At his Wednesday press conference, Frazier declined to name the starting QB for Sunday's pivotal game against the Carolina Panthers.

"I just want to see the guys move around, see what they're doing, how they're doing things and then just make a determination as time goes on," Frazier said during his press conference, according to the Pioneer Press.

Tom Peliserro of USA Today reports that Matt Cassel took the first-team reps in practice Wednesday. Cassel seemingly earned the right to start with his performance in leading the Vikings to win over the Steelers, but he knows there's no guarantee.

We do know that Josh Freeman won't get the start as he continues to learn a new offense, but that doesn't mean all of the local media didn't want to talk to him today.

Vikings legend Fran Tarkenton wrote about the QB situation in his latest piece for the Pioneer Press.

There's an old football cliche that says if you have two quarterbacks, you have none. Well, if you have three, you have a circus.
