A rookie quarterback once again dismantled the defense, and Adrian Peterson's 182 yards rushing couldn't make up for Christian Ponder's 63 yards passing.

What in the world has happened to Ponder? There is no way you can win in this league, especially in today's pass happy league, when a QB is a zero threat to the defense.

Com'on! Ponder has zero WR's, no O-line, etc, etc. Oh wait, Actually he had WR's open ALL day, plenty of time to throw, and Ponder had horrible pocket presense knowing when to throw or not. Fact is: He was 3rd round QB draft pick; not a Franchise QB! Ponder-aholics get a clue! Ponder excuses have run out. He has probably the best weapson in the NFL and still looks horrible.

Time for a change at QB and I wish at Head Coach. You can't win in the NFL with only a running game. Ponder was horrible yet again.

Wow - this is the team we agreed to build a $1 billion stadium with us paying over 90% of the cost in increased Taxes, ticket prices, etc. Zygi puts in only $25M of his own money and the value of the franchise goes up $300M despite on the field performance. Guess that's why he has the big bucks and the rest of us schmucks get up tomorrow morning and trudge off to work.
