Vikings Intrigued By Matt Cassel’s Ability To Get The Fuck Out Of Adrian Peterson’s Way

MANKATO, MN—Saying his dedication in the film room and on the practice field is beginning to yield dividends, members of the Minnesota Vikings coaching staff told reporters Thursday that they have been very intrigued by starting quarterback Matt Cassel’s growing ability to get the fuck out of running back Adrian Peterson’s way. “Matt has displayed great balance and really fundamentally sound footwork when trying not to fuck up any of Adrian’s potential running lanes,” said head coach Mike Zimmer, noting that Cassel’s agility allows him to quickly and decisively move aside after handing the ball off to the six-time Pro Bowl running back. “He’s incredibly smooth when transitioning from the handoff to getting his ass as far away from Adrian as possible. That natural feel for how to steer absolutely fucking clear of the one person who could actually gain yards really opens up a lot of possibilities for our offense.” Zimmer added that Cassel also shows great command at the line of scrimmage when reading the defense and then quickly audibling between various running plays.
