Vikings coach Leslie Frazier reiterated at Monday's presser that he isn't considering benching Christian Ponder.
"I really haven’t thought about pulling him for a game and taking him out for a series or anything like that," Frazier said. "There are times where he needs to stay in the pocket a little bit longer. He needs to be patient." Ponder has been playing spectacularly bad football of late, failing to top 63 yards passing in two of his past three games, while struggling to present any sort of a threat downfield. Backup Joe Webb has been unimpressive in parts of 17 career games, however. The Vikings' supposed quarterback of the future, Ponder's leash should remain long, but he'd do well to at least breach the century mark against Detroit.
