Talk about domino effects. As much as I like Patterson, I still question Spielman's decision to spend 4 picks on him and one pick on a punter, when we could have bolstered our linebackers and secondary instead. We continue to try to surround a below-average QB with talented players, at great cost to the rest of the team. It's time to move on and see if Cassel or MBT has starter quality, and draft accordingly next year.

Cam Newton or Mike Vick run the ball in why they're the new style QB of the future, Ponder runs a couple in and everyone loses their mind.

Speilman is the new laughing stock of the league. I mean when is he going to get it? Why can he NOT see what EVERYBODY else sees? Ponder is TERRIBLE, beyond terrible!!! Jennings said it will be smooth transition - gee ya think Greg? Cassel can at the very least hit an open receiver!!

How can the Vikings not make a move? Their pass defense is bad with the regulars. With the 3/4 of the regulars playing hurt against Big Ben, it will be absolute chaos.

Ponder is a good running quarterback. They are game planning so poorly that they never use his strengths. The problems with the team have nothing to do with Spielman who has done an amazing job acquiring talent. The coaching staff is awful. The D line and the defense in general is the worst in the NFL right now. Why did Bishop not start from week one? Why are not covering obvious targets in the end zone? That prevent defense has never worked and never will. We need a complete coaching overhaul to take this very talented team to the top. Bringing WInfield in for the league minimum may not be a bad idea. But he is at the end of his career. Obviously.

I put this problem on the G.M. who traded 4 players for 1 and even that guy cant stay on the field. way to go Rick.

How can a professional journalist not know how to use the correct form of "your"?
