remember all off season we herd how Rick pulled a fast one on the Seahawks, and that we were going to stock pile picks and then trade them for a W.R. who hasnt cracked the starting line up.or when they drafted the most ready rookie Q.B.or dont have the guts to move up the draft and try to get Luck or RG3. or the great scouting Studwell and co. did w/ d-backs in the draft. nice move!

AP must have hurt his groin from trying to have child number 7. Too bad teams have figured out how to stop him, hit him low... Very low. Achilles Peterson!

The best QB in town is the kid at the U OF M. Fifty two years of failure and counting.

Lose out and draft your QB, its not like winning any games the rest of this year is going to do anything for the team except ruin draft position

Leslie will ponder this [pun intended] and announce that Ponder will start against Green Bay because "he gives us the best chance of winning."

As long as we beat the Pukers I dont care who starts. This is the only game I want us to win the rest of the season, it will just drive one more nail in the Puker nation.

I can't blame Ponder for the fumble. That was Loadholt getting beaten, yet again, by a man speed rushing on the outside edge. Can't we try him at guard where there is no outside edge for him to cover? I know he's too tall to play on the inside of the line, but, if he is playing standing straight up, there is more than one problem with his technique.

Cassel's interception was just one of those good plays that a defender will sometimes make. The pass rush was straight up the field. Cassel had no reason to expect him to reverse direction and jump back to tip the ball. Stuff happens. Ponders 2 interceptions, however, were so inexcusable that even Frazier had no explanation. And, for once, we didn't have to hear "Christian did some good things out there" I can only hope that Frazier's nose has finally been rubbed in it enough that he notices the stench!

On behalf of the Packers....we want to play your best QB. Since Ponder is the "future of your franchise" and since his mistakes are "easily correctable"....Ponder should be the starting QB vs our Packers. Also since Joe Webb really scared us last year, we think he should be the other QB...DEACTIVATE Cassel and Freeman. P.S. How is Greg Jennings working out for you? Don't worry we have some more stiffs for you in 2014 to round out your roster.
