After a losing start, Vikings change quarterback strategyby Tom Crann, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — The Vikings are off to a two-loss start for the season. Now, coach Brad Childress has decided it's time for a change of quarterbacks. Childress is benching quarterback Tarvaris Jackson. The 25-year-old quarterback was billed to become the future of the franchise, but Jackson only completed 51 percent of his passes in the opening two games.
Now, long-time veteran Gus Frerotte will start this Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, with hopes of turning the Vikings season around.
Sean Jensen covers the Vikings for the Pioneer Press, he joined Tom Crann to discuss these and other moves by the franchise.
