"Christian did a great job of leading our offense, very efficient in what he did in the passing game," Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said. "Executed the game plan just like we wanted and things worked out the way we had all hoped it would throughout the week.""

If its the WR's how come Percy didn't have a problem catching them? As for comparing Ponder to how well those QB's played, I wasn't doing that specifically, only pointing out that all of them were much heralded, came out and did pretty good, but wound up dropping off their second and in a couple of instances their 3rd years.
Look, all QB's mature at a different pace, but Ponders issues can and should be also traced back to the coaches who are trying to bring him along as well as the WR corps he is throwing to.
I mean seriously, Jenkins/Orash/Burton......gimme a break. You give them to RGIII or Luck vice the 3 they have to chose from and they will look like crap to the casual observer.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

When are you going to realize that picking out the 20 bad throws this year and ignoring the 300 good ones does not make your point?

Instead we have one guy, Percy, who can/could get open, the others almost always don't get open. That my friend will pretty much force a QB to give up on them and only look one way, which by the way, could be confused by most as "Locking onto a WR".Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

^^^Em Marrdro I hate to break it to you but most of Ponders throws to Percy were in the backfield either a quick out or bubble screen and Percy did the rest. That is not a check in the plus column for Ponder.I bet you could use a cool one huh Clark...Now you're talkin Eddie...

Passer rating: 53.8
" Ponder didn't complete a pass that traveled longer than 9 yards in the air. Over his past five games, in fact, Ponder has completed one of 21 attempts of 15 yards or more, including 17 consecutive incompletions."

Garcon has been hurt all season to take him out.
Moss looked like a ghost of himself. Davis is out for the season. Who is the stud wr that we don't have. The difference is a QB that throws his guys open so they can catch and run.
