Childress doesn't think it's true but Fran Tarkenton says it's all up to the QB position to carry the team where they want to go. viking nation you said Tarkenton was in Ponder's side?

Football teams go as far as QB's carry them. Some of you don't want to hear it I know what the vikings need to bring us our first SB.

Tarkenton is on Ponder's side I posted what he had to say about Ponder. Like with any team in the NFL everything goes through thr quarterback . We all seen teams fall apart because of the QBs play.. Look At the Seahawks before they got Wilson. Look at the 49ers with Smith a good team but not the playoff team that they are with Kaepernick. What would the Packers be without Aaron Rodgers? I agree with you Avant A big part of the teams successhas got to do with how good the QB plays. But it doesnt matter how good the teams QB is if the front line falls apart like the Vikings now. It all starts up front on that offensive line. Be it the run game or passing game The team is nothing with out them.

Nothing wrong with a OL that help Peterson get 2000 yards. You seem to down play that in favor of giving Ponder an excuse. Why are you stuck of a QB every expert and Stevie Wonder know does not have it?

So when he was getting sacked last week did any announcer say:
The O-Line is throwing Christian to the Lions

Hats off, LBF. That was the funniest thing I've read here in a long time. You're not such a bad guy for a Bears fan.
