    I just want one of the two to kick it into high gear and take us deep into the playoffs!
    I think the problem is that even with poor quarterback play, our team is talented enough to keep us too low in the draft to get a good quarterback.

    If Ponder blows, Bridgewater could step right in, and probably lead us to the playoffs like RG3 did with Redskins. Bridgewater is suppose to be better than RG3 and Luck. Do you think the vikes would pull the trigger and save the franchises future? Or do we bring in a vet and try to "Make a run"
    I hope to hell not. Three #1 picks is insane. I guess I'll have to see Bridgewater play, but the guy plays at Louisville for gosh sakes...not like he's putting up those numbers against SEC competition. I could see drafting him, maybe trading our 2014 and 2015 1sts to move up to get him, but not three #1s. No more Herschel Walker like stupidity, please!

    Not sure if this thread has discussed who the FA QBs will be next season, but Josh Freeman might not be a horrible guy to look at, and I think his deal is up after this season.
    SKOL VIKINGS!

    Deep?

    How about all the way?

    I would be fine with that.

    At the same time I am a bit realistic. If Ponder or Cassel were to take the helm and lead the Vikings to one or two playoff wins, I would consider it a successful season... with something to build upon for next year.

    I don't subscribe to the "season is a failure unless you win the superbowl" philosophy like some people do. For instance, I consider last year a success - taking a 3-13 team and getting them into the playoffs with a 10-6 record the next season = successful season... with something to build upon for the next year. Regressing or failing to build upon that is a failure IMHO.

    So basically he excels at the short game, stuggles with the long game.

    Unfortunately, that is not what we need when we have the best running back in the league and questionable receivers. If we ad the best WR corp in the league and a questionable RB, then maybe he would be more successful.
