If the Vikes go 0-4, they may promote Christian Ponder to starting QB. But really, it isn't all McNabb's fault for the team's start.NFL 2013 is Here!
Nope. It certainly isn't all his fault. There is no way you could ever pin all of the blame on him but the whole point of bringing him in was for him to help us win games that we wouldn't win with a younger guy and so far he not only has failed to win us the close games, but rather has failed to provide any sort of field leadership that would simply have the team maintain the lead they built.
Maybe the Vikings need to get in touch with this guy:
The bright spot for the New England Patriots in 2011 has been the passing game, fueled by quarterback Tom Brady. But Brady wasn’t quite up to Brady standards before the season.
As Ian Rapoport of the Boston Heraldexplains it, a visit from quarterback guru Tom Martinez helped get Brady back on track.
They watched film together, and Martinez quickly diagnosed several problems with Brady’s mechanics. Brady accepted the input, and he was fixed in time for the regular-season opener.
”He asked me to come out, right before the season started. Labor Day weekend,” Martinez told Rapaport. “He said he was off. His throwing was off. So I went out there Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. We went through the film. Then all of a sudden, everything else fell into place. Within about an hour, he was back to the old Tom Brady. Then he had that 517-yard game. . . . I guess what we did worked.”

Perhaps what we need is a DeLorean, complete with flux capacitor. Then we could travel back in time and correct all of the mistakes that have been made over the years.

yea, maybe. But who would want that? How about just getting going with your QB at the helm.

#1. Don't trade 4 starters, 3 - #1 draft picks, 3 - #2 draft picks & a #3 & #6 draft pick for 1 player.
#2. If a player was let go by the Philadelphia Eagles or traded from them to a divisional rivalry, don't sign him.
How many ex-Eagles players have we signed in the past 6 years, only to have them disappoint?
I think we now know why the Eagles were comfortable trading McNabb within their division....Advantage - Eagles.

Vikings need to quit wasting the good player talent by recruiting older qb's. They are going for the miracle year. We have already lost 3 games. I say we go ahead and start Ponder and make this a building year for next year and the next, etc.. And if we are looking for a miracle year, then maybe Ponder will do it..SCOOT28
