Personally, I don't think three quarters of the TC gives a rats patooey!

Lions 3-1 their last four games the Vikes 1-3. No Percy and our defense has regressed. I don't see the Vikes getting it done. Gut check time...

The Vikings can say whatever they want to about Ponder, but seeing is believing. And from what I've seen the past four games, the guy isn't getting the job done. People can blame our receivers, TEs, O-Line, coaches, etc...but Ponder is the one with the ball in his hands every play. He needs to make some positive things happen, and in a hurry because the boobirds will be greeting him early on at Mall of America Field. And if his lousy play continues, Frazier will have no choice but to tell Ponder to don a baseball cap and grab a clipboard. Go Webb!

Frazier and the entire coaching staff needs to be FIRED and a well respected,successful former Head Coach like Gruden,Cowher or Billick needs to be hired. Period, end of conversation.

Ponder = NONSENSE and the Vikes purple tinted view of his abilities. Seeing is believing and Ponder has shown diddly. The Vikes need to admit their mistake in their panick pick and find a real quarterback, period.

Ticket sales speak for the fans. Look around at the empty seats on Sunday and listen to the boos from the fans for P-Jack. That should be a wake up call for the Vikings.

I have to say if Ponder fails again then its time to bench him and give Webb the final games because I think we know what we have in CP and we need to find out what we have in Webb , then next season we can do what needs to be done at the QB position .

This year was supposed to be small improvement and evaluation of what we had. The early success may have been a red herring and the ultimate goal is the Super Bowl, which would never happen this year anyway. Stay the course.

Do not like fact that D has fallen apart and players are loafing. Who is holding them responsible - certainly not MR Nice Frasier. Right there is reason enough to get rid of Frasier. He is tied to Tampa 2 D and until that is gone we will always give up to may points - not get off the field on 3rd down. Musgrave has and will continue to kill Ponder. I believe Ponder would be a very serviceable QB, but Musgrave over thinks and can not adjust play calling to what D is giving him. Since we are rebuilding I think it is obvious that Frasier has not put together a staff that can get the job done.
