He seems like a class act to me and I think that is part of the reason why AP is so successful (class act and willing to work hard). I wouldn't throw him under the bus without seeing how he does. People would have been upset had they NOT picked a quarterback. Imagine if they would have let him go to be picked at 16 and he because a solid QB?

Give Ponder the protection that he needs and create holes for AP. Good draft Viking staff.

Joe Webb started the Eagles-Vikings Game as a Rookie...He could very well follow in Montana's foot steps..They both have the same first name..Don't that count for something???

All I can say is that this OL better crank it up a knoch, because allowing Fairly to slip to the Lions is going to make that team something other than the joke that we've all come to know. It may be years before we start another winning streak there. As far as Ponder goes I'm just hoping hoping your the man.

Just another day, the last remark "Doesn't that count for something" was suppose to be worth at least a smile or a short laugh, Any humor in your family....Or is it just the Good Humor Man that cools your brow?...

What wins in the NFL? A team with a quarterback who is quick-thinking and accurate (Brees, Brady, Rodgers), can see the entire field and make the best possible decision in each case as the pocket breaks down (yet is supremely comfortable in the pocket before that happens)- this beats any other consideration, arm strength included (and his is above average, BTW). Here's why this quarterback is so impressive and Frazier went after him - decision-making as the pocket collapses, which it can on every play in the NFL and does particularly fast in this division and conference: Watch the ESPN Sports Science special - this guy was/is incredible - better than ALL others in the draft on this scale, and by a LOT, far and away the most important measure of future success. I love this pick. Frazier and Spielman made a super choice that you will all recognize as such over time.
