Now that Brett Favre has officially called it a career, the Minnesota Vikings need to figure out their situation at quarterback for the 2011 season. Unfortunately even their new head coach is unsure of what the team will do with the situation.
Charley Walters of TwinCities.com recently reported how Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier is clueless when it comes to the team’s quarterback situation for next season. When asked about which direction the team will go as far as quarterback, Frazier responded, “It’s kind of a matter of who’s available.”
In other words–Frazier believes the Vikings need to add another quarterback this offseason to build the franchise around.
Joe Webb showed potential as a rookie last season, but there are numerous members within the organization that believe he’s still a work in progress. The fact that Webb has failed to throw his first career touchdown–despite playing in five games last season–is a huge reason for Minnesota to be concerned and it should come as no surprise that they’re considering all options this offseason.
With the No. 12 pick in April’s draft, it’s highly unlikely the Vikings will be able to land a quarterback like Cam Newton or Blaine Gabbert. If Minnesota is looking to finally focus on acquiring a quarterback to build their franchise around, one solid option could be Kevin Kolb from the Philadelphia eagles–but he won’t be cheap to acquire.
Whatever the team decides to do, it’s not a good sign that Frazier and the Vikings are clueless about their quarterback situation for next season.
