Vikings Aren’t Giving Up… Yet

Christian Ponder

Go get 'em son!

The Minnesota Vikings are 1-5 right now. They’ll be starting rookie quarterback Christian Ponder when the 6-0 Green Bay Packers roll into Minneapolis on Sunday. They have a better shot at getting the No. 1 draft choice than winning the NFC North, but they’re not giving up on the season.

At least according to coach Leslie Frazier.

“It does not mean that I’m giving up on the season or our coaching staff. We’re not giving up on the 2011 season,” Frazier said, referring to his decision to start Ponder this week. “The decision was made purely based on what would give us the best chance to win on Sunday. That’s why the decision was made. I didn’t feel or sense that staying status quo was going to get us a win on Sunday.”

That’s right, guys. Get out there, take your beating and collect those checks!

Ponder is taking over for Donovan McNabb, who has been a complete failure as the Vikings starting quarterback. He’s not alone, though. Other than running back Adrian Peterson and defensive end Jared Allen, no one on the Vikings is playing at a high level.

We wonder how much longer they’ll bother to care.

    They can’t blame Childress, Favre, or McNabb. That only leaves the refs. Who will thet blame this week?

    They gave up after the loss to GB last November. As tough as it is to say, this Ponder guy may be a good start to build around for the Queens. Until then I hope the Pack piss pounds this shitty team.

    We have a tendency to talk about other teams on this site. Let’s talk ” Total Packers”. I don’t need to hear about the rest of the North, I know we are the best. Let’s talk dynasty! You guy’s remember the Dolphins and Steelers, can we or are we in the same class? Without a dought, Aaron beats out both Bradshaw and Griese. Ryan, are you listening? Could be, mentioned in the future with the greats: Csonka, Harris, if the blocking tightens up. Our receivers are already great, Swann, who? Warfield, who? TE, Jermichael, it’s all talk, you haven’t had a 4 TD game yet! Kellen Winslow comes to mind. Steel Curtain, at least we have the freezer! Lambert, Ham, ya, we beat that: AJ (finally playing his best ball ever!), Clay (No comment neccesary, but, Jack Lambert!, not yet, too pretty!) Des, leadin’ the Pack! Mel Blount, that guy kicked a**, Charles in his own special way is a legitimate comparison. What i am trying to say is that we have the majority of the pieces to win 2 more to match the Steelers 6, but can we do it while leaving lasting impression like the one I have from my childhood from the Dolphins and Steelers? And don’t forget the Raiders: Stabler, Balitnikoff (sic), Casper, Upshaw, it goe’s on and on and on. Can the Packers leave the same kind of lasting memory for my children? Would be nice. This is Total Packers!

    Go write a book Pacman, that may help you learn how to spell. If you want to tell people what to do, be a cop, otherwise shut up. Nobody wants to hear your ramblings.
