The current skid began in 2009. Favre at QB and a series of Prime-Time games that were blown.

ROAD GAMES. Gotta win at least half of them.

Tell me.........why are the Vikes so bad on the road?

Reason is we don't have a confident QB. Last two heir apparent for franchise QB status Tavaris Jackson, Christian Ponder are the same guy. Skittish and not accurate. We should start calling Ponder Christian Jackson.

As for Brett Favre he was tired on the rode. Jacking off sending pictures to women all over new york.

Have been for quite a while it seems like, doesnt it Harry? Ponder may or may not come around, still remains to be seen how he performs against some good teams the rest of the year. Whats funny is how some people have written him off and he hasnt even started for a full season, yet these same people supported T. Jackson for 4 years and one could see by his second game that he would never be an NFL starter LOL !! I guess thats what happens when folks have no football knowledge

Ponder is not the answer. I wrote off TJ when the pick was announced. Ponder I wrote off about start 4. Start 3 I was real scared, though.

To date, nobody has explained what Childress saw in Jackson. Nobody else saw it.

But the road problem........mental toughness? Lack of mental toughness? What about allowing that 2-point conversion?

Got caught napping.

AP missed the bus? A couple fabulous fumbles?

Sloppy.

And nobody in the RB/TE/WR showing any signs of being a breakout guy.

Lethargic.

And Green Bay on the horizon.

Ponder is just a green Florida kid on a C+ team.

He was NEVER hailed as an instant fix.

Sounds like Ponder needs a hug. I'll give him one in the showers ala Sandusky
