Mike Zimmer says he has a plan for Vikings’ QB situation

When is Teddy Bridgewater coming back?

That remains at the top of the list of questions surrounding the Minnesota Vikings despite their 38-30 win over Washington on Sunday.

On the FOX Broadcast, color analyst Charles Davis mentioned that Zimmer had told them in meetings that Vikings fans would be seeing Bridgewater under center soon.

“I’ve got a plan and we’ll just see how it goes,” Zimmer said following the game. “Sometimes plans change. We’ll see how it goes and we’ll sit down this week and we’ll visit about it and go from there.”

Backup Case Keenum had highs and lows on Sunday, throwing for 304 yards and four touchdowns, but also tossing two interceptions. The Vikings have won in six of Keenum’s eight appearances this year.

Bridgewater was active for the first time since August 2016 on Sunday and was emotional on the sideline prior to the game. He practiced fully all last week.

    Yeah well I dont believe Charles Davis either ~ Most of you guys hide behind what someone told them behind closed doors ~ I’m sure Zimmer wants to mess with his starting QB’s mind in the middle of a 5 game winning streak ~ Yeah that sounds like Zimmer to be so careless ~ Why should he care if the team keep winning ~

    Remember Davis is saying that Zimmer told him this before the game so Davis could run out and tell the world so his starting QB could find out through others that he is getting benched for playing well ~ I’m guessing that the Vikings are leading the NFL in big plays this year all by himself ~ ??? Really ~

    So if you bench Case for a couple of bone head moves out of the last 5 games what should Zimmer do with his pet project that played even worse at times today ~ ???? The defense ~ Heck he wouldn’t have anyone to start now would he ~

    Bottom line this is the kind of game the Vikings would have lost in the past ~ But they won ~ And some bones heads think they know the fix to the whole team ~ Change the QB and that will fix everything ~ Your so funny ~ Not ~

      Zimmer is not shy about mind games – Bill Parcells was the man’s mentor, and Parcells is a master of the mind f*ck – but I don’t think this was a mind game on Zimmer’s part. If Case has shown us anything, it’s that he’s mentally tough, so Zimmer knows that Case can handle his coach having a plan for his benching, especially since it’s obvious that Zimmer wants to get Teddy back on the field sooner rather than later. If I had to guess, Bridgewater will start against the Rams, five-game winning streak or not.

        I fear you might be right cka2nd ~ I fear you might be right ~

        And if thats the case and Zimmer doesn’t know any better and it blows up in his face I will be one f those who says he should have know better and hope he is replaced after the season ~

        However if he does this and he is right I will be the first in line to tip my hat to him while eating my fair share of crow for knowing more than I do and he should know more than me with the money he is making ~ LOL

    I don’t know what is going to happen in 2017… But if i were GM, i’d be trying to sign them both up for 2018 now so we can play this out as far out as needed with no other teams’ offers messing up our futher plans.

      If you were Case Keenum right now why would you sign anything?

      If Brock Osweiller, Tannehill, Cutler and Mike Glennon are getting $10-20 million then I’d bank on myself and let the chips fall where they may at the end of the year.

        Guaranteed money is hard to turn down in a game where next Sunday could be your last due to injury.
