Exactly what I have been telling everybody.

Quote, he completed more than 52 percent of his passes just once in his last four starts, and too often took off and ran before checking all his options on passing plays, leading to injuries to his right hip, right hand and a concussion. He finished the season with a 54.3 percent completion rate,

The Offensive line did a good job last year, the sacks were because of Ponder.

I should never have a push-back when it comes to the QB position.

CALLING the best rookie of all time Cam Newton should have clinched it.

If Gerhart starts Ponder will fail. He doesn't have the agility Ponder needs for his play action passes.

Ponder needs a big-time running game to be successful.

If Ponder doesn't show significant improvement this year we draft a real 1st round QB 2013.

Exactly what I've been telling you for six years is you are a retard, and......everybody believes me.

Anybody who thinks our OL did a good job at pass protection last year either didn't watch the actual games or, has the same mental deficiencies as you.

Our coach and GM know we needed big help as evidenced by our first draft pick. You and....the Buffalo news, Hootie and the Blowfish and, some of the other laughable news sources you've spouted on about over the years such as.."Cold Pizza"....the sports show for chicks you used to watch,.......KNOW...... NOTHING!

We went out and got help at WR in the draft and that kid from the Bengals if he works out plus, help at OL so, we'll see.

Fact is, you're still sore about your big failure in TJ and Culpooper Boulevard. Get over it!

They stink and, so do you.

This thread is now null and void.

While you were on the 60 day disabled list with a hip, Childress has come around to my position on Ponder. He pick him in the 11 draft now he's looking for his replacement in the 2012.

It's a QB league, Childress now realizes that at Ponder's best he will always be the worst QB in our division.

I've come to the conclusion that Avant is only interested in getting replies added to his total at all cost.He has over 8,000 replies,of which all have been through trolling at all cost,or talking stupid.All are designed to add to his total.
That's why he "loves this game topix".Best to ignore him.We usually have no problem ignoring other trolls,we can do the same for the Raider fan.I have his post,where he says he is a Raider fan.And I've never found evidence that he is a Viking fan.

Rookie Stats-----
Payton Manning: Comp % 56.7 TDs 26 INTs 28
Eli Manning: Comp % 48.2 TDs 6 INTs 9
Christian Ponder: Comp % 54.3 TDs 13 INTs 13

Seriously Avant, if you were judging rookie numbers I would say Ponder is doing pretty well and those guys had full off seasons! No I am not saying that he will be as good as those guys but am not saying he won't, only time will tell. This year he gets a full off season and some help on OL and WR.

Everybody in the media who has commented on the vikings 2012 season has said it's do or die for injury prone QB. I'm rooting for him but I'm with most experts. I'm scouting the 2013 draft for a QB who can compete with the QB's in our division.

Cam Newton and Andy Dalton changed the way QB's are judged. You can't look like a rookie anymore.

People didnt think Dalton was that good. USA Today's NFL Draft Preview* dubbed Dalton “The Best of the Rest” and put him at seventh in QB value, anticipating him as a fifth- or sixth-rounder.

One writer said I wasn’t alone in this opinion. Sports Illustrated correctly projected Mr. Dalton into the second round, noting that he “does not always sense the rush. Does not always throw the ball with proper footwork. Struggles with accuracy on deep throws. Needs to put a lot of effort into his motion to get extra velocity on the ball.” They decided that he might become a serviceable “game manager.” One day.
