The Minnesota Vikings lost a third straight game on Sunday, and a fan decided to create a jersey lamenting the team’s quarterback situation.

The Minnesota Vikings have lost three games in a row since a 5-0 start this season, and through the last 20-25 years of their history they’ve had their own laundry list of starting quarterbacks. A fan has narrowed things down to the three seasons Mike Zimmer has been Vikings’ head coach, in an attempt to create a version of the Browns quarterback jersey.

It doesn’t make a lot of sense to put Teddy Bridgewater on the list twice, and the “Who Cares!” clearly looks like a space filler to make the list look longer. Christian Ponder also only made one start under Zimmer, in relief of an injured Bridgewater in 2014, while Cassel only started three games at the start of that 2014 season before being injured himself and giving way to Bridgewater.
Any real angst about the Vikings’ quarterback situation, outside of Bridgewater’s future as he comes back from the devastating knee injury he suffered this preseason, is unfounded or simply played up for humor.
