Let me start by saying WOW what a terrible way to start the season. I have been one not wanting to throw Ponder under the bus but he was terrible. Had a few impressive throws but other then that the rest were completely terrible, throws that a starting quarterback shouldn't make so often. Any hope I had for Ponder is degrading every time I see him step on that field. If he plays like this next Sunday against a very good Chicago defense then we are really going to have problems and Matt Cassel should have his number called on game day. Predictions: Ponder vs. Chicago.... 17/31, 196 yards, 1 td/2-3 interceptions. Peterson can't really do all the work, there has to be some kind of passing game. Ponder is limited in what he can do and obviously we have all seen the good and bad of Matt Cassel as a quarterback but I believe he gives us a better shot to win games, and lets say Ponder does get benched. I Think its time for Frazier and Speilman to draft an actual franchise quarterback no matter what it costs. I've been a fan since I was around 8 (back in the late 90's with moss and Culpepper playing) and we've had the worst luck with quarterbacks... It's time to end this terrible streak and win a super bowl and stop wasting Adrian Peterson's talents!!! SKOL VIKES!
