Also, don't forget to mention how well our starting QB that year was the year before.
Not very many people thought we needed to find a starter that year. Just a project and a backup.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

"If at first you don't succeed, parachuting is not for you"
Why is his down field accuracy so important? Are we going to shift over to the "Air Coryell" variant of the WCO or are we going to stay with the scheme that has 90% of it plays ran from teh LOS to 15 yards down field?

Even in the Walsh offense they had deep passes that needed to be completed with accuracy and the short to intermediate passes also needed to be timed to get to a spot at a specific time and so far those are not things he has done with consistency. And it isn't going to be 90% my friend unless the QB dictates that is his plateau.
All of them were in the 2 to 5 range (Avg) per game on deep passes. I think we will all see that one of the benifits of actually having a starter at each position (X, Y, and Z) as well as the flexibility to move a couple of them around will greatly increase the completion percentages of the "Deep" passes everyone seems to think Ponder can't make, even though he has to some extent at this level and was pretty consistent with at the collegiate level.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

If Ponder had accuracy like Rodgers. If Simpson could have a good season. If Henderson could be effective at MLB. Etc. , etc..
Vikings still have a lot of ifs, and Ponder is the biggest if of all.
The Vikings should be better this year, but will they be good enough ?
