We never saw this coming. Oh… wait… yeah we did. The Minnesota Vikings appear to have moved on from Christian Ponder as their starting quarterback, much to the dismay of Christian Ponder.
Sad Christian Ponder.
The writing was kind of on the wall when the Queens signed Tampa castoff Josh Freeman. And well, Ponder got another pretty clear message on Thursday. Wonderboy missed the Vikings’ last game because of a rib injury and Kansas City castoff Matt Cassell led the Queens to victory.
Now Ponder says he’s been cleared to play… but the Queens are going to start Cassel anyway. Chiefs legend Matt Cassel!
“Some of the dynamics of this organization have changed obviously with brining in Josh [Freeman],” Ponder said. “I would be lying if I didn’t say it was a little bit disappointing and frustrating.”
We feel your frustration, Christian. The Queens might actually have a chance to win with Cassel. And when Freeman learns the offense and he takes over as the starter, hell, the Queens might actually be legit!
No one wants that! Well, except for idiot Queens fans, but their ignorance is well established and hence, their desires are irrelevant.
For the record, Ponder has two touchdowns to five picks this year.
The funny thing is, Queens coach Leslie Frazier has been openly supportive of Ponder. Even when they brought in Freeman he said Ponder was his starter.
In fact, word out of Minnesota is Frazier wasn’t in favor of bringing in Freeman at all. That’s obviously because he doesn’t care about winning, but that’s beside the point.
Meanwhile, the players on the Queens offense have been talking up Cassell, saying how he has more command of the huddle and so forth. Chief among those is Queen Bee, Greg Jennings, but that’s probably only because Cassell throws the ball to Jennings. And we’re all well aware that Greg Jennings is only concerned about two things: 1. Greg Jennings’ stats and, 2. Greg Jennings’ money.
Stalk success, buddy!
On Thursday, Frazier declined to name a starter for Sunday, but Ponder told everyone that he was told it wouldn’t be him.
“It’s not an open competition, but I just want to make sure we’re doing the right thing,” Frazier said. “We’ll go through practice tomorrow and see where those guys are.”
Gotta love the dysfunction that is the Minnesota Vikings.
On a positive note for Sad Christian Ponder, he still has a hot wife. Although I can no longer look at her because she’s married to a Viking.
Don’t be sad, Christian. Coach Frazier just said a couple days ago that you still have a bright future with the Vikings. He wouldn’t lie.
No worries. The Pond will end up being a capable back up to Mike Glennon or Thad Lewis. He has a place in the league.
Christian Steele has NOTHING to be sad about.
Thanks to nothing more than the Vikings greatly overrating his draft value he now has millions in the bank and a hot sideline reporter for a wife.
He has essentially hoodwinked life and shop-lifted the pooty.
He is living the dream, man.
Wow…queens. Is this the creative power of the author? I haven’t heard this one before. Minnesota hasn’t been a reliable threat to the packers in about 15 years but the author seems to get off on any possible negative news in Minnesota. This website is boring!
Au contraire Skolian slime.
I think it is one of the most entertaining websites in existence, as it never misses an oppotunity to verbally excoriate the sorry facsimile of a pro football team that hails from Minneshithole.
Since you have an issue with the ‘Queens’, does Horned Faggots, Bi-Kings, or maybe just the univeral standard around these parts, the Minneshithole Shitfucks work better for you?
Now – go fuck yourself and stay on the weak ass sites that celebrate the abortion you assholes call a football team.
The Vikings have shitty quarterbacks. I don’t see a problem with that.
Freeman making them legit? WTF How about a little respect for the Vikes front office. They spent a lot of fucking time looking through other “starting caliber” QBs to find ones with stats just as shitty as Pondering-a-new-career. THEY FOUND TWO!!!! That is amazing. My hat is off to them. You can not do that by accident.
Didn’t 15 go to Minnesota because of the talented, young QB they had? His true colors show again! It’s a great day to be a douche!
I’m a Pats fan, just here because I have Jennings on my fantasy team (i.e. bench) and I’m trying to do my research, but jesus christ: Packers fan author calling the Vikings organization Queens?? Not to mention this article has some of the most blindly stoic and unashamed fanboyism I’ve ever observed on the internet, which is saying something. I guess Jennings was right when he compared his former team to a cult.
Its a green bay packers website..and..most queen fans are jealous obnoxious douchebags who come on here and spout off about how much better..and far superior their lombardiless team..and hormel chili eating fans are to us. They deserve everything we dish back at them!
