    I agree. Even if the guy wasn't an expert on the offense he was missing pitch and catch passes by a mile. Too amped up maybe but more likely a not heady player that let the moment overwhelm him. Too early to write him off but an inauspicious start. Better bring something to the disaster that is shaping up to be the Green Bay game. Maybe he'll put it all together and rally the troops to an unlikely victory over the best team in the NFC North. Right.....

    How anyone can draw conclusions based off that shit-burger of a game last Monday is beyond me. It told us NOTHING we didn't already know.

    not true.

    I knew our coaching was bad. I didn't know it was THAT bad.

    This. People act like he is a rookie. Overthrows have nothing to do with being in sync with WRs and learning the system. He was atrocious. I was screaming for Ponder back. It was sad.

    Well at least next year we will be playing on a college field which is where this team belongs. Maybe we can file a bullying complaint against the Packers next week. LOL

    Passing

    They may want to stay in Mankato where the coaching talent they face may be more in their league

    Well you got Ponder back last night. We did score but you have to admit Ponder is not good. The whole situation is laughable.

    Yup.

    Why is Cassel still on the bench?

    Collinsworth, for once, called it like it is. Ponder missed at least half a dozen throws/reads, maybe more. He looked more lost last night than perhaps ever. This team is on a locomotive to 1-15.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent
