I think we are all overreacting. Yes the performance on Thursday was horrible, however for people to say "give up on Ponder!" is ridiculous. It's year 2! Look, last year we were 2-6 at this point, we are 5-3, and who knows, maybe we eke out a victory before the bye and then get momentum for our tough stretch. Don't give up yet my fellow fans! Also, what are your thoughts on maybe acquiring Bowe from KC? I heard he wants out!
Some of you need to take a step back and reassess your life. This is only a game. I love the Vikings but I have liver disease, and am looking at getting a new liver in the next 5-6 months. That is why I take everything in stride.
BTW: I thought ponder was ok, but he needs to throw the ball farther inside from the out of bounds line.
What are you even talking about? Like we didn't know it was only a game. We are fans, we earned the right to bitch. We pay money to and devote our selfs to a team that we love. I don't need to reassess shit. Fuck these turnovers. This team is better than that shit.
Okay, at the end of the draft I said that the team will only go as far as the coaching staff will take them. Who in here thinks that the players we have are being utililized to their potential? Ive been holding back and taking a wait and see approach to the coaching staff, mainly Musgrave. It seems to me that there is are specific plays for each player and that is it. Its so predictable. The playcalling is so predictable. Does Ponder not know how to run an offense from the shotgun? Can TE's not catch the ball on 1st down? Are there only 20 plays that the offense knows? Can the offense grind out a drive not relying on Harvin or AP? Why not? how are other teams making plays with what they have? How is it that there players(wr's) are making plays and ours are not? I do not see a problem with what we have, I have a problem with the way the whole team is being utilized. Mix it up, quit being so predictable and lets see a offense that is hard to figure out from week to week. Challenge the players to be their best every week.
He doesn't like to run the offense from the shotgun because it's too far to throw to the line of scrimmage.
