Frazier's QB approach may have to yield to reality

A relevant comparison to Frazier's philosophy to the success of three, THREE, previous Vikings coaches. If I don't perform at work, I will get fired. It is time to start holding Ponder accountable for his performance, mental mistakes, lapses, interceptions, stupid fumbles, etc. As Souhan points out, last year's patience was rewarded...thanks almost solely to Adrian Peterson. I say almost, because Ponder did have a couple of decent, mistake free games down the stretch. This year, we fans won't be that patient, and, I'm suggesting that neither should Spielman, or Wilf(s) for that matter.
Oh, I'm also insulted by the vision of Ponder on the sideline laughing and shrugging off an interception Sunday...not good. Did anyone else see that? Great QBs simply do not act that way...EVER.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent
As a matter of fact, I do know

Whats the beef with Fraiser? Not his fault he was handed this pot to piss in. The roster's make up is all Rick. We blame Fraiser for the piss poor talent but praise Rick for drafting them?????

I'm not overly thrilled with the free agent acquisitions, but also wasn't all that excited about the free agents there were to choose from at our positions of need. This coming off season(yes, I know it's only week one) depending on what happens, Cutler and Hakeem Nicks could be available. We're going to have some cap room if Allen and Williams both walk, which they likely will. It's a very strong upcoming draft for d-line. Could get interesting.

I'm not jumping on the coach, OC, QB, or GM after 1 game, but when we lose those are the guys who are going to get the blame(and when we win it's cause AD).

1: I saw Ponder laugh off the first INT too...and at first I had the same reaction you did. Then I thought about it and realized that QB's need to have short memories on stuff like that. After all, he has to have the CONFIDENCE TO MAKE THROWS .....
...of course, it would be nice if he had the SKILL to make throws.
I have never been on board with the Frazier hiring - most know that. I find it incredibly disturbing that his HC path should so closely mirror his predecessor. One would have thought that Leslie would have seen Jackson drag Childress down the crapper and said, "Oh HELL no"....but nope, he's doing the SAME DAMN THING.
Bench Ponder, Fire Frazier, Fire Musgrave, Fire Williams, FIRE WILF.
