Vikings collapse continues, Hall starts wk 17

The Minnesota Vikings are going back to Rookie Jaren Hall at QB as they seek to get something positive out of the season. This is the Vikings 4th QB change since Kirk Cousins season was ended in week 8.

“We have to maintain possession of the football,” Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell said. “The turnover margin has been well-talked about all season long, and I just felt like, at this time, giving Jaren a full week of preparation and a clear-cut mindset on the game plan was best. I’m excited to see what Jaren can ultimately do.”


Jaren Hall said this of his previous start that ended with a concussion, “There’s a lot of big dudes out there. A lot of fast dudes, and you’ve got to learn to play within the system and play the right way to avoid stuff like that happening, to the best of your ability. It’s definitely something I’ve noted and hope to be better at.

“You’ve got to realize how fast guys play. You’ve got to be smart about the times you use your legs, and you’ve got to get down. There’s no superhero ball you need to play. The game is won over four quarters, not one play, and you’ve just got to remember that.”

Hall completed 5 of 6 passes for 78 yards in his only start.

All this really means is that the Vikings have no clue which QB gives them the best chance to win. Which is slightly bizarre when you look at the stats, given that only one of the QB’s has actually won any games. (*note We are giving Dobbs the win for Hall’s start as it’s the only sensible thing to do)
