We need to accentuate the positive not Ponder's history of injuries. A 20 yard TD pass was his longest last year. Ponder should do that in the first half of the first game this year.

Was scanning mock drafts

Minnesota Vikings: David Fales, QB, San Jose State
The Vikings didn't find a young quarterback this offseason because they didn't want to hurt Christian Ponder's confidence. However, if Ponder stinks again, Minnesota may look into drafting a young signal-caller.

David Fales will go in the first round with another strong season. His decision-making, accuracy and field vision are terrific. He doesn't have the strongest arm, but it's good enough.

I seen Fales playing in the Stanford game where he lost the game with a INT & Stanford ran out the clock.Some of the people here blame his receivers for not finishing the play but if your receiver didn't run the route why make that dumb throw. The receiver was took out of his route by the defender & Fales still was throwing to the spot that the receiver should have been. Not a big thing, It happens right but that time it cost him the game. He makes a lot of blind throws & has been lucky up to that point. One other thing about Fales, san jose state has him run the offense out of the shotgun on most of his snaps. They run a heavy zone-read pistol offense, a QBs completion percentage can become over inflated because of this. Some experts say Fales is a potential first round NFL draft pick but because of the kind of offennse san jose state has him running my money is he will drop to the second round. The Vikings would have to teach him to run the offense from behind the center. I think if the Vikes end up drating a QB he should be able to run the offense from behind the center also you shouldn't have to teach him But that's just my opinion.

I have been looking at Tajh Boyd out of Clemson I'm not sold on him yet. I'm still doing some more research but he had 4,400 total yards and 46 total touchdowns in 2012 He has proved he can win big games unlike Fales. Boyd throws a good deep ball He also runs like Colin Kaepernick. His down side is he sometimes lets the other team back in the game with a dumb throw & he is only 6 ft 1 - The only thing is the Vikes would need to trade a few picks to get him like the Redskins did for RG3 & I am not real sure the Vikes would be willing give up the farm like the Skins did when there is a few pretty good QBs coming out.

As stated in another thread,Avant relies on the site I gave the forum,years ago.Scouting..HAHA
With that said/noted,
and without further ado.
Skipping the blue chippers of which there are two and barring a Viking really bad season (not likely we have to much talent).
The most likely,
AJ McCarron Bama
Aaron Murray Georgia
and I love that conference,the best in college.
Stephen Morris The U.(Canes)not getting much attention but is highly rated.
Manziel might slip.Texas A&M.Grab him.
And just for Avant,
Derek Carr,younger brother of David Carr Fresno State.

My personal thought on the Qb position if Ponder isn't good enough.
The team is almost built to make a run,The D-line one of the best,if not the best,must find a way to pay all the DE's coming free after the season.
With that said and if we need a Qb for that run,get a veteran leader like Rivers and draft the guy to be the future.A year or two.Waiting for a drafted Qb to develop,doesn't work if your Peterson.Plus all the talent we've drafted recently will be hitting contract years.If their that good,keeping all of them will be difficult at the minimum.The future needs to be Ponder,for sure,if not a proven veteran with a can't miss drafted Qb who needs some time to lead.That won't happen with the Qb's coming out overnite.

Looks like Avant could be right, Geno Smith hasn't had a INT in camp yet. He is looking very good in practice.

During Saturday night's practice on Blakeslee Stadium, Ponder looked a lot better, completing 12 of 15 passes for a touchdown and an interception. On one play, he connected with Jerome Simpson for a 60-yard pass play.

In other words,until someone steps up,like a rookie,or Cole,who is having his usual good camp,the Vikings are stuck with Henderson in the middle.Their still not sure where they want Bishop,probably because of his injury,plus he's hurt right now.Eventually Minn.will improve the MLB position.
I'm starting a fun game.
It's called count the words in ezg's post,then count the words spelled wrong,words not placed at all,wrong use of words,coma's,etc.
then grade him
like
grade preschool.
I've never seen him with even a H.S.vocabulary to this day.Some words wrong,fine,but everything,It's no wonder in part nobody talks to him.He's embarrassing to the forum.The other part???He's a disturbed human being by evidence of to much to mention,but we all know what his issues are.

AJ McCarron, Aaron Murray are the Mark Sanchez and Christian Ponder off the 2014 draft. NO NFL TEAM will draft Johnny Fuck up(Johnny Football) early to run their team.

The knucklehead comes from oil money, illegally signs his name for pennies. He is the dumbest heisman trophy winner ever.

The NFL is a one Car league. NO MORE CARR'S!!

Face it you know nothing about the game of football. I sure havn't seen it up to this point. Your dumb MLB pick in the draft was all the proof needed, picking a player that went in the second round. To think you would waste a frist round draft pick lol Why do you think all the experts projected him to go in the second round? I'm surprised that only the packers fan & myself has let you know this. You know nothing about drafting & what players you might have been right about in the past was only because everyone on line knew the vikes would pick LT Kalil. More proof you know nothing is You are the only person that thinks Tebow is a good player lol once more showing how little you know about the game & you talk about Avant WOW what nerve you have wannabe. You should stay with your fantasy football its the only part of the game you have a chance at being good at. You can make all the fun you like about my writing, I know the game better then you will Ever know it. lol oyes.

Are we a little pissed?
Everybody hates you,we come here just to upset you and Avant.Nothing new,we told you we would be in to bust your disturbed head.
It's just you and Avant left.The Packers took over this site months ago and man did they crush you both.I'll be in often just for fun.Others have done the same.Anybody new will be told the truth about you.Avant is pretty good all by himself getting people to ignore him.Unless they like pissing him off.
Grade preschool on your rtard spelling,structure and anything resembling normal.
