well if it's any consolation, at least we aren't paying him what we paid last year's qb and mcnabb is doing no worse.

Frazier=Chili v2.0 Frazier is in over his head & he realizes he will be getting axed in the foreseeable future-all he can do to delay the inevitable is surround him with other incompetent coaches & players that if it were not for the Vikings; the would not be in the League at all. Why? Because the sycophants are loyal & realize that they have a good thing & the gig is going to be up when Frazier gets the axe so they will work together to keep the ship upright for as long as they can-so they can milk this cow for all its worth. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY ALL TRUE VIKINGS FANS SHOULD THINK TWICE ABOUT SUPPORTING THIS TEAM UNTIL IT CLEANS UP ITS ACT STARTING WITH THE COACH, FOLLOWING DOWN THE STAFF WITH BOTH THE O & D-COORDINATORS, QB, O-LINE, RECEIVING CORPS, & SECONDARY.

This is ridiculous, Ponder couldnt of done any worse and cant do any worse right now. I mean, $5 million on a good Safety or Wide Receiver with Ponder at QB would've made this team 3-1 right now, or 4-0! frazier is 3-7 as well, get rid of both of them.

Only bad coach did not recognized McFabb is on the declining. Coach Reed knew that, Skins' coach knew that and many other coaches knew that (did not try to sign him, eventhough their team need a QB). Time to start C. Ponder!!!!

As it stands i have no hope that this current team win even one game. What a bunch of simpletons. 0-16.

McFlab is done! Back in August I saw video of his first days. As soon as I saw the flying mattress he called a pass, I knew the vikes had made a horrific decision. It wobbled, wobbled and dropped from the lower atmosphere that would have made any high school quarterback chuckle. Right away, I knew it-he's done! The real travesty is that Schpeeelman is still the one in charge of evaluating talent. This guy doesn't have a clue. And it's not just an inept QB. Secondary can't catch, and can't tackle. How embarrassing. Would the packers ever accept starting out 0-4?

Can we handle 12 more games knowing we should have a high enough draft pick to land a starting LT of the future for AP's and Ponder's sake?

Anybody watching tonight's Colts/Bucs game. Curtis Painter who is the ROOKIE!!!!! QB replace Manning is doing a hell of a job. What's the problem with this idiot coach of ours not to start Ponder at this point & see what he can do??? I seriously think that this goes beyond football, Frazier is doing everything in his power to keep McNabb's career alive by not benching him. McNabb has been a total disaster & Frazier is afraid of looking more of an idiot than he already does if he bring Ponder in & he picks this team up!!!! If that were to happen, he would have to admit that he blew our season by picking up McNabb which is something he doesn't want to do!!! Does this remind you of another idiot coach by the name of Chili, who also defended his pet project, T-Joke at all costs!!!!

Not sure who's going to last longer, McNabb or Frazier. By next week, they both could be gone.
