Like it or not, the Vikings are riding Ponder for at least this next season. Whether that means the Vikings have a losing season or not, they are sticking with him.
The Vikings were a 10 win team this year, and a playoff team this year because of Adrian Peterson. Had AD not had that kind of season, the Vikings were at best a 6-7 win team. Ponder had more bad games than good this year, and certainly didn't win this team games with his arm.
I am not sold on Ponder one bit, but in order to see what he really has, the Vikings ABSOLUTELY need to get some playmakers in at WR next year and beyond. You can't continue to stick a young QB who makes a lot of mistakes out on the field when the best WR option is Michael Jenkins. The Vikings probably had one of the worst WR groups in the entire NFL, yet they were still a 10 win team, and a playoff team because of their stud RB.
Sign/trade for 1-2 WR's, draft another one, and lets see what he has. I would love to see both Mike Wallace and Greg Jennings here along with Harvin. If that happens, we have some nice options. Or if you want a big WR, a slot WR, and a burner WR, keep Harvin, and sign Bowe and Jennings. All I know is that the Vikings need to get off their asses and bring in some real WR's, these Simpson's, Jenkins, and Armoshudo's shit just ain't working.
