On his pick 6, he was looking at the WR before the ball was even hiked!! He NEVER took his eyes off the guy, and it was so easy I think the Bear's DEF might have been a little freaked out. If that is STILL being done after 3 years, there is nothing left to be done besides replacing him.
No matter how many drives he puts together after the DEF bails him out, the propensity for him to do that again is extremely high. If we as fans can't trust him, think of how his team feels. Vikings fans are NOT Eagles fans, I find that we as fans give our players TOO many chances; and if we have given up on him...

This IS for fun, right? And for the record, the fact that very few fans here are screaming for Ponder's head after almost 3 years does show the Vikings fans give players many chances to prove themselves.

Part of the problem with Ponder is the Coaching staff and FO staff. Just like Jackson, they brought him in, claimed he was going to be "the Guy", and now he's failing to take off. This is an absolute mirror of the Childress years. Maybe Brady will threaten to retire and we can get him for a year to make Frazier look like a genius.
Ponder has the tools - like Jackson did - but the inability to utilize those tools successfully.
But the true problem isn't Ponder, and it isn't frazier - even though HE'S the genius running the show. And it isn't even Musgrave...who may be the worst OC I've ever seen on our sideline.
The problem is Wilf.
They hired Frazier. They hired Childress.
only they can fire Frazier, and maybe actually bring in a real HC.
Although, based upon their history, they'll simply promote Musgrave....

THAT, more than anything else, tells me Ponder needs to go. If he were to shake off this numbness he seems to ooze next week, I would be the first to say I was wrong and be supportive. I am a fan, and just want my team to be GOOD!
But...does anyone here think that is going to happen?
