    Although it worked out pretty well for the 1999 Rams xD. Not so much for Trent Green. Not that I think Matt Cassel is the next Kurt Warner, I'd just rather see us waste preseason games on Ponders on going development instead of regular season games. 2 passes? Really?

    And Cassel doesn't have his timing down with anyone and put up decent numbers. Downplay it all you want but Cassel should be leading this team soon.

    In fact Cassel put up more yards in his first half with the Vikings than Ponder did in 9 full games last year.

    But think about it for a second- Cassel leading the team is not going to be a positive development. And I am not supporting ponder but if Cassel is the best we can put out there then we are in for a long year.

    I am holding out hope that MBT emerges as the starting QB. He certainly has some zip on the ball

    Any news or reports on Webb then? I assume Ponder didn't target him so was he used at all?
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Was targeted 3 times i think, by the 3rd string qb. Made two receptions and handed out a really nice pancake block on a run play

    One of the passes he snatched in was a really nice grab considering where the ball was when he grabbed it.

    Our fringe players late in the game were very inferior to Houston's. The cut to 75 will be easy.
    None

    off topic, because I don't know where to ask, but what's going on with PPO? The cbox is expired, whatever that means, and it seems like I have to re-sign in every time I want to post. I haven't seen Webby post since week 3 last year.

    Did all of the positive Pammy's finally ditch all of us negative Nancy's? They started a new community didn't they? Somewhere where they can talk in peace about how the Vikings have gone undefeated, won every super bowl ever, and are debating how many TD's CP will throw in the all Viking pro bowl.

    Remember those guys that would only show up to post how they hate negative posts (without getting the irony)? That one guy would come into the chat room on game day sometimes and then just go off on anyone that said anything negative and then leave lol. I wonder what they'll complain about over there in this all positive land that I'm trying to imagine. I miss their crazy rants. I'll bet their theme is all rainbows and kittens too.
