Zimmer plans to wait before announcing the starting quarterback.

Vikings fans anxious to see Sam Bradford start at quarterback might get what they want when the Vikings and Packers meet on Sunday Night Football this week, but head coach Mike Zimmer doesn't plan on making that the official plan to the public any time soon.

During his Monday afternoon press conference Zimmer responded with a simple "Mmmm-Hmmm" when asked if he'll wait all week to name the starter.

Zimmer did say Bradford already knows enough of the offense to call audibles and make checks at the line of scrimmage.

Shaun Hill started Minnesota's 25-16 win over the Titans on Sunday and he played mistake-free football. But the offense failed to find the end zone despite Hill finishing with 236 passing yards.
