So receiving the MVP means nothing. Spielman has lost a lot of credibility with this one.

The kind of year Peterson had even Tim Tebow who can't throw would have won 10 games with the vikings last year.

The fact that Spielman is talking about this smell of a confidence building ploy.

Ponder should be embarrassed Spielman gave him fake credit. If Spielman said Ponder should get some credit I could agree but don't lie to knowledgeable football fans and say he deserves AS MUCH CREDIT as the hall of fame running back.

Do you think Ponder deserves AS MUCH CREDIT as the great Adrian Peterson?

Ponders passer rating ranks 21st in the NFL, right in between fellow NFC North QBs Jay Cutler and Matthew Stafford.

Look back to week 17 Ponder threw for a season-high three touchdowns, did not throw an interception, and set a career high for a single-game passer rating at 120.2.

Then again you can also say In the final ten weeks of the season Ponder failed to reach 200 yards passing seven times, while being held to under 100 yards in three games.

One thing is for sure Ponder has got to be a lot more consistent then he has been. now with some better receivers that can get open we will see a Ponder like the one we seen in week 17.

Ponder did all the work,called the play,took the snap,handled the ball,handed it off cleanly.
All Peterson had to do,is run.

ALL PETERSON HAD TO DO IS RUN? Only one back in football HISTORY accumulated the yards the great Adrian Peterson did last year so don't tell me ALL PETERSON HAD TO DO IS RUN!

So why didn't Ponder win MVP if it's a team game? I'll answer it. Because AP was team and league MVP. Case Closed!

Yes all he had to do was run behind the LT that we drafted in the 1st round, that Avant said we shouldn't have! Then in 2013 most of the NFL followed Speilmens lead and drafted linemen. What does that say about your draft knowledge?

Furthermore (I know Childress likes that word) Avant you wanted to trade Peterson before the season even started. So if Adrian Peterson is great, what does that say about your knowledge of talent?

Finally in closing; if Ponder goes out on the field, performs terribly, gets injured and misses 1/3 of the season and has double the INTs as DTs. He is still better than Tarvaris (Avants Love) Jackson. That is the FACTS!

Peterson was 42% of the teams plays last year so I would say the vikes winning had a lot to with Peterson's great year. but you got to give Ponder some credit, one for having a receiver leading the NFL in yards & two for the last four games he played he had only 1 INT. I think what Ponder did with Harvin the first half of the season showed he had some promise for the future.

lol no denying Peterson was a big reason for the winning season but you can say that about any player that was a major part of the teams offense. theres more then one player on the team & the offensive line deserve some credit & so does the FB blocking for Peterson.
