    Ponder named starter

    Report: Christian Ponder named Vikings starter for Sunday | StarTribune.com


    Good deal. No reason not to throw him in there. Also means the Vikes have tossed in the towel on the season, but at 1-5 in the NFL you have no choice.

    This is most likely true. Good to get Ponder the time and snaps though.

    If Ponder sucks the Vikes can snag Luck.

    You think McNabb was going to do something against a stout Packer defense? Uhhh no. Throw Ponder in and get him the time.

    No. We need Blackmon. Not Luck.

    If a team had a chance to get Luck and skipped out on him, they would be idiots. Then again I wouldn't expect anything other than that from the Vikings.

    We'll see how Ponder looks here. If he has potential, it wouldn't be the dumbest thing if they had the #1 pick to trade down for more picks. Is Luck with this line/receivers/etc. better than Ponder with an upgraded line and better targets?

    He looked impressive for the two minutes that I watched the game last night. Not a bad move by the Vikes.

    Re: Ponder named starter

    I would be more excited about this if I thought McNabb was the main problem. When you're staring at a giant pile of ****, it's hard to pick out which peanut is the problem.
    But, if they really think this kid is the answer long term - might as well throw in the towel and give him a go. I'm not sold on him.
