Things were supposed to be better with AP playing. But he was in only for two plays. And they weren’t.

49ers have 4 QB's that can play in the NFL. The Vikings have 0. Sadly, this is going to be a very long season.

Josh Robinson was beat all night. then it was , Bobby Felder. offense looked horrible. no pass attack. but we know AP will make it all better

Well that was fun. Indicative of what a regular season game would be like between a contender and a pretender. What's Ponder smiling about? He is the worst and not going to get better. I hate to see AP waste his career with this second rate offence.

I know it's only preseason but Ponder absolutely stinks. The scary thing...there is nobody better than him on the roster. If Peterson doesn't win the game they are toast...just like last year. I also have big doubts about Frazier as a coach...don't think he can.

The defense looks...Awful.

Ponder again looked like he has made no progression! Throws off target, no confidence to throw into small windows. Cassel doesn't look much better which makes this situation very, very worrisome.

My gosh! Ponder cannot throw a spiral even if it's only a ten yarder! Expect a worse season for him. He would barely be a third stringer on any other team.

The first two preseason games Frazier said he didn't need to see the regulars play and that he would gauge where the team is when they played the 49'ers. This is so disappointing. Frazier is married to Ponder just like Chilly was married to TJoke. You would think Frazier would've learned from Chilly's misplaced allegiance. There are rookie QB's, one year QB's who are light years ahead of 3rd year Ponder. Ponder wouldn't even be the backup QB for any other team. Ponder does the same things he did 3 years ago, happy feet, has no idea what "going thru progressions" means, no touch on the pass, weak arm, can't read defenses. Frazier and Speilman can keep trying to sell hope but Ponder will prevent this team from success.

6-10 if they are lucky. Frazier is safe The NFL is borrowing the Wolfs all the pittance they have in the stadium in exchange for keeping Frazier on board no matter what. Welcome to "Twins Two, The Sequel".

It is quite obvious that this maybe a very loooong season. Line is not playing well, secondary doesnt cover to well or tackle and QB cant stretch the field. Big changes may come in the off season. As a die hard fan I am very concerned this group will not succeed and we as fans will be very disappointed. There is a lot on the line this season for what appears to be a 6 and 10 team.
