Joe, Football will eventually implode. Fans are already having a tough time affording to attend the games. It will only get worse as stadiums and their surrounding infrastructure crumble with age. Small market teams will be the first to suffer as the expense of rebuilding or keeping up will certainly crush the taxpayer and fleece the fans to the point of starvation. The answer? Let it happen like it did with MLB back in the early 90's. Football needs a dose of reality.  (May 20, 2011 | post #60)

Good for Ponder. Maybe he can get Rice to stay in Minnesota.  (May 16, 2011 | post #2)

Bob Sansevere: On and on with former Vikings QB Brad Johnson

I just think Musgrave does a good job of designing an offense that works with his QB's abilities. It won't be flashy but it should be effective.  (May 10, 2011 | post #5)

Bob Sansevere: Critics of Vikings draft pick Christian Po...

As much as I liked Gabbert and Dalton, I thought both were products of good systems so I would not have drafted either of them unless they really fell. Locker was the guy I thought the Vikings were going to grab. I guess Tennessee did too and pounced. I'm not unhappy with the Ponder pick. Ponder makes good decisions and is pretty accurate - two factors I think trump all others for a QB. But, like many of you I have serious concerns about the O-Line and thought we should have started there with Castanzo or maybe Pouncey. Akumanara or Fairley would have been pretty cool too.  (May 4, 2011 | post #46)

I like Ponder's chances much better with Musgrave than I would have with Bevell.  (May 3, 2011 | post #1)

Bob Sansevere: Critics of Vikings draft pick Christian Po...

I'm an FSU fan and a fan of Ponder's. Just the same, we reached at QB with the 12th pick. Now to put this into perspective. Given the early run on QB's, the Vikings felt that they needed to act and get their potential starter. They attempted to trade back and could not get the right deal. They acted. In a normal year, this pick would have been ridiculous. However, in a year without F/A signings this might have been the correct choice - might have. The truth is, all QB's are big gambles and we really won't know if Ponder was worth the price until he gets on the field.  (May 3, 2011 | post #3)

Minnesota Vikings draft quarterback Christian Ponder

Frank, trading partners are contigiency plans at best. Once the board starts getting emptied everything changes. I really do believe they tried to move back. I also believe the Vikings did exactly what they said they intended to do - address the QB position. Personally, I think all QB's are a reach in the draft. I wanted an OT or Center.  (Apr 29, 2011 | post #139)

Minnesota Vikings draft quarterback Christian Ponder

The bursa sac is the same thing Peyton Manning had before the start of the season, if I'm not mistaken. I think Ponder had his fixed in time to play in the Senior Bowl (MVP). So far the pundit camps are sharply divided on this one: The "arm is most important" guys hate the pick; the "head is most important" guys love it. Like any QB drafted, time will tell whether the pick was wasted. I thought for sure Amukumara or Fairly was going to be the pick at #12.  (Apr 29, 2011 | post #137)

Minnesota Vikings draft quarterback Christian Ponder

Okay, let's see. Tennessee takes Locker. Jacksonville trades up for Gabbert. Miami picks a couple of spots behind you and there are rumors of QB interest. Buffalo, Cinci, and Arizona all pick at the front of the 2nd round and at least two of those teams will probably pick QB's. The Vikes tried to trade back later in the 1st but couldn't find any takers. What do you do? You make the pick that you think is going to land you the player that will help your club most, and in Minnesota that would be a QB. IMHO, the only QB's in the draft worth considering in the 1st round were Gabbert, Locker, and Ponder. Of them, Locker and Ponder made their teams much better than the talent around them warranted. Locker was gone. No body wants or needs to move up. You pull the trigger on Ponder? I would have preferred a different scenario but understand why they did what they did; smart kid, great leader, makes good decisions, accurate arm, good athleticism, pro-style offense. Welcome to the Vikings Mr. Ponder.  (Apr 29, 2011 | post #127)

Sorry, the real just another dimwit, but resorting to insults an 8th grader would consider trite magnifies your lack of imagination and resourcefulness. Everybody knows my wife died 2 years ago. So thanks.  (Apr 28, 2011 | post #49)

That doesn't mean squat - just like your misguided opinion. Now, go back to humping your cow, dimwit.  (Apr 28, 2011 | post #47)

Minnesota Vikings' dream sequence starts with trading No....

I've been saying the same thing for weeks only my choice of QB might differ. We have to get a FA vet to come in and help install the new offense and keep things running until the QB of the future is ready. I'm not sold there even is a QB of the future available in this draft. That #12 pick can be turned into 1 potential superstar ready to go tomorrow, 2 likely starters for years to come, or a 1/100 chance of landing a QB of the future. Given our team's present condition I'm going for 2 likely starters for years to come.  (Apr 28, 2011 | post #27)

Minnesota Vikings' dream sequence starts with trading No....

Taylor is very interesting: Accurate passer, reads defenses, highly mobile, makes good decisions. The knock is he is only 6'1". I think he is EVERYBODY'S sleeper QB in the draft. Somebody is going to grab him early in the 3rd.  (Apr 28, 2011 | post #19)
