I guess if a guy can convince himself that Winfield was a P.O.S. with a bad attitude, Jefferson can easily replace him, Simpson only needs another offseason to grasp the playbook and pay off huge dividends after being here a year and Ponder is a bonafide franchise QB, I guess you can believe anything. Especially if you sugar-coat it a bunch.
The site is so slow. I don't think I've seen it so boring before. What happened to everyone? And when someone posts is almost seem to be some negative stuff. I, for one, am really proud of the way Minnesota played and I think the future looks very bright.
Personally, I think our future could be brighter, but Ponder doesn't fit into that future. Meanwhile we waste talent we already have like Rudolph who has a lot more potential than how he is being used now. The Pro Bowl was a great indicator of what he can do with a decent QB throwing to him.
We also have a hard time keeping the talent we have, with few exceptions, once they hit FA, unless that player is mediocre/average.
I think Jennings will have a decent year, but nothing like he had back in GB in 2010. Fans don't mention the fact that he had Rodgers throwing to him before & now it's Ponder. Quite a difference there. He also doesn't rush like Harvin did, nor is he a KR & when they traded Harvin we lost a great KR as well. Only one other player who returned more than 3 kicks had a higher average than Harvin. Sherels, who is left to continue to fill those duties averaged 10 yards less per return than Harvin.
I also think teams will try to mimic what GB did to AD in the playoff game & have better success slowing him down, but Ponder won't be able to counter it with his arm consistently enough.
The 3 minutes of highlights is nice, but only shows the highlights hes had over the past 2 years and a good chunk of it was him running the ball. He can at times make plays, it's all the other times he can't that I worry about.
