The Minnesota Vikings finally finished off an opponent and came out with a win yesterday but the only issue is that the win had more to do with Adrian Peterson‘s 122 yard, three touchdown performance than what Donovan McNabb was able to do. McNabb did finished the game 10-of-21 for 169 yards and ran for a touchdown but has turned into the quintessential game manager rather than a legitimate NFL quarterback.
Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated still sees the Vikings making a change at quarterback at some point this season.
“As much as [Vikings head coach] Leslie Frazier wants to stick with McNabb, expect a change once the Vikings are officially out of playoff contention,” Trotter tweeted.
The Vikings find themselves in a difficult position to fight their way back into contention considering that the NFC North has emerged as the toughest division in the NFL. Minnesota will be up against the Bears, Packers (two), Panthers and the Raiders in their next five games so a change could come as soon as their bye week in week 9.
