What a HONEYMOONER !!! Wake up dude 20 -0 third quarter with 2 int's cost us the game. The Packers gave you a break by dropping three other int's. Your almost starting to sound like Farve instead of what us true Viking fans want and that is a replica of Rogers.

Hey lighten up...ponder didnt give up 20 points! Blame that on our lousy pass defense. And what? You dont expect a rookie to throw some int's? We're not going anywhere this year, so let the kid develope. He's already almost a Rogers..he's got the beard, aint afraid of the cold, is an accurate thrower, and can run!

You gotta like this kid - so far, so good. Give him a year or two and he could be a top QB. Has the brains and confidence and good enough talent. Now how about some better D-backs to keep the opposing scores down?

Ponder has a strong attitude that none of us actually has, have to respect that at least!

Packers 97, Queenies 0. Packers should have had three more TDs last game.

If lhe is a honemooner then we all should sign right up. This kid is the real deal. As I told all of you boys from the draft on, just get Ponder on the field with the other young studs, and the wins will come. As for the honemooner guy, the reality is that the Vikings were the better team when they played last month. Everyone knows that. However a good team like the cheese finds a way to win. They kept plugging away and beat a team that is better than they are. Similar to to the Aints going to the superbowl. Anyone with more than single digit IQ grasps that the VIkings were the best team in football in 2009. Period. The best team did not win the superbowl, the luckiest one did. Same for last years division runner up.

Awesome! The rookie's goin' into Green Bay after calling the pack cheese heads! Let them come after you and keep throwing crossing routes. This is MY QB!!
