I still cannot believe we won this game. I just hope we can continue the momentum. My gut tells me once we run into a QB talented passing team, we'll want to fire the whole coaching staff again. But let's enjoy this one.. we kicked butt and as a fan.. it was a blast to see this game.

So called expert Steve Wyche predicted SF will walk all over the Vikes. He knew nothing at all about NFL....

It's a sad, sad day for lots of Vikings "fans" - those whose days aren't complete without an excuse to ridicule Ponder, Musgrave, Frazier, and Wilf, I mean...

Ponder has grown by leaps and bounds. Musgrave finally trusts him. I'm sorry, but my only beef is keeping in Gerhart after he fumbled the second time. The refs not knowing the rules notwithstanding, I am relieved leaving him in didn't cost us the game.

Ponder is growing up right before our eyes. And it's fun to see.

Will the "Webb at QB" people finally admit that Ponder is the clear winner in that battle?

Christian Tarkenton played pretty good....I bet Sir Francis loved watching that 23 yard scramble for a TD. This is a Ponder article but I'd like to point out that Greenway is having a Pro Bowl season so far..

Ponder needs to improve his field vision. AP was wide open on the TD pass to Rudolph. 2 weeks before Harvin was wide open and Ponder decided to run the ball. He tends to lock onto his primary receiver and if they are not open, he runs. Glad Rudolph was able to make a fantastic one handed catch because he was covered like a blanket while AP didn't have a defender within 10 yards of him.

I love how Ponder has one decent game and fans are already predicting he is the chosen one. He lost to a terrible Colts team. Let's wait a few more games and see how he plays. There were good plays yesterday, but plenty of mistakes as well. The game at Detroit will be a very good indicator.

dirtydogs...Brady and Brees must have played flawlessly yesterday...oh, wait, their teams both lost. QB's make mistakes, they have the ball in their hands every play-they will make some and miss some. And "no" Ponder didn't have a decent day, he had his best day as a Pro. To beat the best defensive team in the league, dominate the best defensive team in the league-is a little better than a decent day! It SHOULD make Vikings fans excited!!
