    Who's loving them some Norv right about now?

    After all, he did do great things with Weeden last year.

    .......Oh wait!
    I bet he get the same kind of fair shot as Tarvaris Jackson did when the Seahawks brought in Flynn and Wilson.......and his stats mirror Jackson's from that season as well

    What would YOU be saying right now if you were Turner? If you want Ponder to compete, you say exactly what he just said. If you want to TRADE Ponder, you say exactly what he just said.

    There is ZERO value in being honest, telling the world Ponder has no chance at being with the Vikings next year.

    ^ exactly

    I had to change the radio station today when Barreiro was just going on and on about how Ponder might start next season because of Turner's answers to questions about him. Turner said what he had to say. ZERO chance Ponder starts unless he stays on as a 2nd stringer and the starting QB gets injured at the last minute.
    Skol Vikings! Go Cubs!

    Agreed. If Ponder starts I wont bother to watch the Vikings next year.

    Turner will give Ponder his shot to stick with Vikings

    Ponder can't be turned into something he's not, but best case scenario his weaknesses can be hidden and strengths maximized much like what Alex Smith has figured out. Unlikely and would take the right coach and situation but who knows whether this is it.

    How do you hide not being able to read the defense? I think the only way is to hide Ponder on the bench.

    Turner has had three years to develop. And he has yet not to develop. Hopefully Turner will help the young man. Norv knows what he is doing. Heard he is great with his QBs!

    It's February, Ponder is the only QB currently on the roster. This "story" doesn't concern me at all.
