That meaningless win at Wash last year cost the Vikes getting RG3. Instead we have Ponder who can't carry his jock. Ponder is not a franchise QB. This franchise is a mess. There is no hope. Nada ,zero,zilch...

After 3 years in the NFL, RGIII will be strictly a pocket passer. I have seen this before, been there, done that. Enjoy these next 3 years D.C, this will be his peak.

I love this picture below the headline which shows Harrison Smith lying flat on his back while RGIII is enroute to the endzone!!! Just think, the vikings could have had RGIII but just like everything that happens to a jinxed frachise like the vikings they came up a little short (again)!!!

Lucky RG3 has that world class speed because he must not have any arm strength because he never threw a deep ball. QB,s like RG3,Newton, and Vick will win a few games with their legs, but to win consistantly they have to use their arm which is why they have o rings. I know RG3 and Newton are still very young but the odds are against them. Skins basically run the same high percentage passing attack the Vikes do, but many Vikes fans want to put RG3 in the HOF and Ponder on the bench or someone elses bench for that matter. I for one still like Ponder's fit on this team. Like the old saying goes "The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

Frazier, a former Defensive Coordinator and his entire staff are a JOKE. Griffin should have been contained to the pocket and made to win with his arm. This game proves Frazier is so overmatched in X's and O's of the game. Spielman, please fire this guy ASAP and let this organization move forward.

Wash is playing the college Ga Tech offense and proves it can work with the right QB. I'll take three years of RG3 for ten years of Ponder. And yes..RG3 did look a lil like Joe Webb.
