Fran Tarkenton Talks About Christian Ponder

26

This interesting tidbit was in St. Paul's Pioneer Press yesterday. Apparently, former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Fran Tarkenton likes what he sees from rookie quarterback Christian Ponder. In a season that hasn't given fans a lot of hope, hearing that Tarkenton thinks Ponder has what it takes to be a good NFL quarter back for years to come is a much-needed shot of hope that the franchise has a critical piece of the puzzle in place so it can build for the future. Vikings fans can use all the hope and cheer they can get this season. NOTE: Cobra312004 posted a FanShot about this yesterday. I'm late to the party.

Stadium Likely, Now Settle Down

18

It seems that every other day Minnesota Vikings fans have a new reason to wonder and doubt whether it is possible for the Vikings to get a new stadium built in Minnesota. For every hurdle the team clears there seems to be a new one just waiting for them. That sort of thing has a tendency to make me despondent, but, according to my favorite writer at the St. Paul Pioneer Press, we all need to settle down and take a deep breath. Tom Powers believes that the Vikings are very close to getting a new stadium and that getting huffy and obnoxious at each delay is not going to endear the team to Minnesota legislators. It's an interesting read because this is one of the first things I've read that suggests a Vikings stadium is highly likely. It makes for a nice change from the doom and gloom we usually hear.

As part of the celebrations for the Vikings' 50th season, the Minnesota Vikings will announce the 50 greatest Vikings of all time on December 19, 2010 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. If it wasn't for the fact that I'm obliged to be out of town for all this fun and excitement, you better believe I would be booking a ticket right now.
