Al Michaels just commented on the CIN/HOU broadcast that Christian Ponder is inactive.

Have been told it is "looking more likely" Joe Webb will start tonight. Still no final word. But Vikings much closer to Plan B.


Soooooo looks like that injury to CP's shoulder might be a little more serious than initially was thought?

Implications?

Joe Webb isn't half bad; I thought he played well last year and was robbed of a comeback victory vs. Detroit in 2011. But, w/ how well CP7 has played as of late, I'd much rather face Joe Webb.

Update: With 2 1/2 hours to game time...

So to reiterate, Vikings STILL don't seem to know who is starting yet. Ponder finished throwing but Webb still out there

Has Webb taken any reps with the starters lately?

Backup Joe Webb took more reps in practice this week and was pulled aside by coach Leslie Frazier after Thursday's practice, along with third-stringer McLeod Bethel-Thompson, who may be active for the first time all season.

Gotcha. Tough way to enter the playoffs for the Vikings. No pressure, AP, but... yeah, here's some extra pressure.

Vikings should be on the phone with Chris Ault to dial up some Pistol offense tonight

Joe Webb is back on the field for more warmups. Looks like he's going to throw with Jerome Simpson. Only two guys on the field. #Vikings

I find Webb to be the better QB of the 2,very mobile. I think he'll give GB fits,especially considering the fact that GB has been preparing for Ponder to start.

If I'm a Packers fan, I think I'd actually prefer to play against Ponder than Joe Webb. Webb has gamebreaking "how the hell did he do that" ability.

Ponder has shown that ability on the road too. But replace "how" with "why".

Part of me just wants to see Webb play, just to run all over GB. Might even work. The Packers couldnt stop the run for the life of them.
