EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - The suspense likely doesn't have the Dallas Cowboys shaking in their boots, but that's not stopping Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier from playing a little cat-and-mouse with the Vikings' starting quarterback position.
On Wednesday at Winter Park Frazier refused to reveal whether it will be Christian Ponder or Josh Freeman starting against the NFC East-leading Cowboys.
"I have an idea of what direction we're going to go and how we're going to practice. But I'm not in a frame of mind where I want to divulge it at this point," Frazier told reporters. "Our team knows, and I'm sure it will get out there at some point. But I don't want to publicly talk about who is our starting quarterback."
The coach hinted that he knows which way he's leaning, but intimated that he was trying to keep the Cowboys in the dark so they've have to prepare for two QBs instead of just one.
"I hope it makes a difference," Frazier said. "I don't know if it will. Everybody comes in (against the Vikings) saying, 'You've got to stop No. 28 (running back Adrian Peterson).' So it doesn't always make a difference."
Ponder started Sunday night's loss to Green Bay as Freeman was reportedly suffering with symptoms of a concussion.
