MINNES?TA VIKINGS. Where's the "O"?
It's actually pretty easy to figure out Nodak. All of our team's woes can be directly tied to marrdro jumping on the Frazier bandwagon after the Titans game. Ever since ol' Leslie got Marty in his back pocket, the pressure to win is off, and we have been sinking farther into the crapper with each passing game.:p
That damn Marrdro. Just when we finally get out crap together he has to throw a wrench in it.
When we win & have a good game, many fans talk about how great many of our draft class from this year and last played & how good they are, but when we lose they get a lot of the blame & the they're young & we're rebuilding talk comes out.
I heard the announcers say that as well, but I'm not buying into that theory on those long passes. Many QB's will tell you they throw the ball into a spot where the receiver is supposed to be to catch it & not necessarily where he is. That ball is launched to that spot long before the receiver gets there.Quote:
This comment came from dad, as well as the announcers.. dad explained it as. the wr starting a few yards into the field more would give that throw a different angle. it's supposed to land in stride over the shoulder drifting toward the sideline. as he was riding the sideline it drifts out of bounds.. i'm not the expert, (unless it was ice hockey) but it made sense to me.
I for the life of me though, don't understand why WR's are still running sideline routes. Standard practice should always be to run the route 2-3 feet inside the line to give yourself & the QB a little wiggle room. Years back it didn't matter as much because if a receiver was hit while in the air by a defender & that momentum took him out of bounds, it was still a catch.
Nowadays you must get two feet in regardless if a defender pushes you out or not. There's no need to ride the hairy edge, IMO. Especially if Ponder is throwing. It doesn't have to be off by much to be out of bounds if caught.
Don't make him angry, you're not going to like him when he's angry....Quote:
yeah.. but man o man.. what an effect.. like instant energy.. as soon as the fight happened.. dad said. "now that's the wrong guy you wanna piss off" and yeah.. i'd never condone taking shots at JA.. but it man i'd like to see him that pissed each game.
I don't think the majority of PP.O would say Ponder will never be the QB we need at this point yet.
I don't think you're even going to see a "Who's tired of the Ponder Project" thread, a "Start Webb or MBT now! threads or a majority of the fans claiming he should be benched.
I don't think you'll see fans at the edge of their chairs hoping for failure or a mistake so they can start a thread bashing him for inaccuracy, turnovers, not sliding correctly, having a limited playbook, sitting on the bench, holding the ball too long, etc.
