Cassel to start for Vikings
Matt Cassel will get another chance to recreate his success filling in for Tom Brady in 2008, as the Vikings will start him on Sunday against the Steelers. Christian Ponder's injury is too serious for him to start, but missing this game could be risky for him. Ponder hasn't played well this season, and if Cassel provides stability at the position, he could do to Ponder what Lou Gehrig did to Wally Pipp. But, you know, with much less historical significance.
