If you're willing to end a quarterback's preseason appearance after two plays, you're in essence saying he doesn't need any work. If that's the case, why play him at all?

BLUNDER, seems to be the word on how the vikings used are hope of a franchise QB. Now the pressure is on him to have better numbers than Matt Cassel.

I'm sure Fraziers notice that Cassel showed more QB management in 2 quarters than Ponder has showed in 3 years.

Ponder LOVERS. He he bombs friday are you willing give him one more game.
Aren't you tired we have to go through this QB turmoil every year since he was drafted?
If Ponder has a great game against the BILls I will. be the first to say it. BEST wishes for Christian Ponder because Matt Cassel eyes his job.

Why are you so set on Cassel The guy was never a starter in college. Don't you think there was a reason for that?

A coach or GM (as in, someone with his job/ass on the line) would not. The guy is a backup.

Either Sister Christian somehow pulls it off this year, or it's time to look to the 2014 Draft.

Ricky overreached when he took Ponder in the 1st. Ricky never could judge QB talent. It cost him his job with the Fins, and it will soon cost him his job with the Vikes.

Rick Spielman has done a great job of drafting for the Vikings. Even if Ponder doesnt work out he isn't going to lose his job over it. If he only had one bad pick when he was with Miami he would still be there. With Miami Spielman took a gamble & lost. He was inexperience & it showed. Like the A.J. Feeley trade & his trading with the Vikes to move up and pick Vernon Carey & also the trade for a running back I forgot the guys name now but Miama needed a back because Ricky Williams took off for a season. He did help the team drafting Hadnot & signing a few other guys that are starters still. I think with the Vikings Spielman has done a great job He had a Hand in getting Allen & the Rookies thats been drafted has all played good So if one guy (Ponder) dont workout I think Spielman job is still pretty safe.

Meanwhile your Dolphins are still doormats,explain it????Ponder was a good selection,regardless of how it plays out.If anything the Vikings probably could of waited another round,but who knows what info the team had on what another team might do.I sugguest you go to Draft nasty and look at the Qb scores since 2010.Ponder scores higher than many,and better than most of the 2014 class.This site is one of the best,while using a system different than the traditional loser sites.Now Avant and ezg/Vn will be claiming things down the road from the info I supply them.They no nothing.

And this boys and girls is how you get to over 10,000 comments. That's right, you talk to yourself! It doesn't have to be smart or intelligent. Just blab away to yourself - who cares if anybody is listening!

Looks like the big boys are back to put things right.
Jimmy is doing what he always does,finds a guy he thinks is on the bubble and rolls the dice.His complete Qb ramblings have been broken down by me.Yes Avant sucks the big toe he shares with Ryan.
Unfortunately we continue to give Avant conversation based on his knowledge of nothing.But it is fun.His son lives in Madera,Ca.Remember the 15 yr old????would be 20 now,he likes everything Jimmy likes and swears by T.Jackson
HAHAHAHAHA

Tough being a Dolphin these days.Spielman just missed the S.B. in 09 and got us a wildcard this past season.Viking fans are very happy with the recent drafts.We're coming,Ponder might be less than we need,but we're giving him this season.

I think with Miami Spielman f'd up alot & it was a lot more then only one player so I can see why their fans are sour He set the team back years. I wouldn't have wanted the guy as the GM after all that happen there. But here with the Vikes he has done a great job & us fans wouldn't want to let the guy go for one bad pick, even if that pick is the QB. I didn't like bringing in McNabb but I can see why he did it. other then that Spielman has done a super job so far anyway.
