Much as the 2011 season started with an immediate TD before ending with an emphatic 3-13 thud, so too will the 2013 season go with a backup QB at the helm and a suddenly frail-looking defense. Ponder should have had 4 INT had Detroit not dropped a sure pick six. Make the QB change after the loss to Chicago next week.

If we can bench CP and (possibly) terminate LF contract early in the season then we may still have a season left to enjoy a win or two.

Ponder! and Brian Billick too!!! Maybe the NFL could put Matt Millen on sidelines to make comments to totally punish Viking fans.

QB looked terrible. OL looked terrible. D looked terrible. Lots of work to do all around.

The recipe: eight or nine in the box to stop Peterson; make Ponder beat you with his arm. Do you think Chicago maybe will notice?

So the guy they took with the 12th overall pick three years ago had 3 ints and 2 fumbles both of which were lost. Not good...not very good at all.

Last comment and I'm done; Why isn't the best player in the NFL on the field on third down plays?

Just a few things I noticed. 1. Patterson touches the ball once. Nice coaching. Where were all the plays Harvin ran? 2. Why did we sign Jennings? 3. Rudolph is a beast and gets nothing. 4. Musgrave has changed nothing. 5. Did Allen play? 6. The D is bad with or without Williams. 7. We can't stop 1 player, Bush? 8. Who is supposed to catch a lot of these balls Ponder throws? 9. Now we get to hear the same thing from Frasier and the players that it's just one game and we know what we need to work on. Only problem is we keep hearing that and nothing changes. before you know it you are 2-6.
