Just over 24 hours ago, the Vikings were eliminated from the NFL Playoffs. Now, the fight for the starting quarterback position has begun, and Teddy is letting everyone know where he stands. He fully believes he will be the starter for the Vikings this fall, despite the fact he is an unrestricted free-agent and the Vikings did not pick up his 5th year option. We here at CSZ surely hope he is right!

Lamar Jackson

Lamar Jackson, whenever a cardinal fan hears, reads or sees his name, their faces light up. Rightfully so. Lamar is currently in New York preparing for the Heisman ceremony, hoping to become only the second person to ever win the Heisman twice. Throughout all of his interviews, one thing has remained constant in the craziness, the love he has for his teammates and coaches. Not only is Lamar a once in a lifetime player, he is a once in a lifetime young man. No matter what the voters decide, I want Lamar on my team, every day, all day.
