i hope to hell not.they need ponder to pregress not regress. he has weopons its only a matter of him getting protection and will the oc will call a decent game. i know no one remembers these games a month from now unless someone important gets injured but i want too see some damm improvement i aint gettin any younger this will be season #44 of vikings football for me
It doesn't really matter how we play because we won't know how aggressive our offense is until peterson plays. Without 28, NOBODY repsects our offense, thats why the Bills blitzed us almost every down.
I just want to see Ponder step up in the pocket and throw the dang ball!!!!!!!!!!! Surely he can make one real play besides some lame duck wabble throw to a tight end. Even if AP does not play, Ponder has got to do something. The 49ers D-line could get him flustered real early in this game.
This game is going to be our best telling story yet. It's preseason, but get this. Our Total Def is dead last out of two games. people may say "Oh but this is preseason!" How freaking telling is dead last? says to me our depth of Def is in some bad shape. ? wonder who has the best total Def so far?...... 49ers. The 49ers passing is #1 for total YPG. So This test against the 9ers is gonna be big. ALL our QB's need to have a good comp percentage.
Also, for a team that is built to run the ball, we a ranked third to last in our running game.
If we tank bad in this game, it's going to be a long year, an my vote is toward Teddy Bridgewater. It's early ya, and I am rooting for Ponder, But my Gosh!!!! He Just does not have the right qualities. Minn fans are going to be booing him First game, and calling for Cassel. I'll lay money on it. We did this last year too. I feel bad for Jennings. We are lucky to have Cassel, because he Just may save the day.
Good lord. Cassel is terrible as a started. Look at KC last year. He was abysmal. Much worse than Ponder. I know Ponder has looked bad. But lets give him the first game of the regular season at least before we ask for Cassel.
