Head coach Kevin O’Connell slams at poor commitment of the Vikings as he outlines his plans to rethink over the 28-year-old QB situation ahead of Week 14 clash with the Las Vegas Raiders…

Amidst a quarterback quandary and a two-game losing streak, the Minnesota Vikings made a pivotal decision during their Bye Week, parting ways with veteran QB Sean Mannion. The move comes in the wake of a challenging game against the Chicago Bears, where Joshua Dobbs, acquired from the Arizona Cardinals, struggled, throwing four interceptions that contributed significantly to the Vikings’ 6-6 record.

Head coach Kevin O’Connell expressed a reluctance to designate Dobbs as the definite starter for the upcoming Week 14 clash with the Las Vegas Raiders. O’Connell emphasized the importance of aligning the quarterback choice with star wide receiver Justin Jefferson, who is set to return against the Raiders.

With quarterbacks Nick Mullens and Jaren Hall returning from injuries, and Dobbs still on the active roster, the Vikings opted to release Mannion from the practice squad.

This move underscores the team’s commitment to finding the optimal backup for Kirk Cousins, who suffered a season-ending Achilles injury the previous month. Despite the Bye Week offering a brief respite, the Vikings, currently on a two-loss streak, face heightened pressure to rectify their quarterback situation and regain momentum for the remainder of the season.
