Take him over Cassel fine but Bridgewater?!?! No way man. That's ridiculous.

easily the most preposterous statement of this off-season, and that is saying something.

Is there anybody here not sipping the purple koolaid for just a sec?

Ponder possesses great accuracy and is the best athlete of all our QB's. He can run the ball and pass. He's a more complete player that just needed time to develop. If there was an open competition in training camp, he would win the starting job. But our coaching staff is playing favorites. Incompetence at it's finest. It's juts whoever zimmer likes, not what's best for the team. Zimmer was all in on Josh Gordon and look how that turned out. Guy jst picks who he likes not best for th team.

Kinda sucks you wouldn't want to win games.

It sucks we keep changing coaches. Frazier was fine, our new HC is going to struggle thinking Cassel is the answer.

Man, if you think Frazier+Ponder was the answer I just don't know what to say.

Please remind me when those two were associated together? Zimmer has said that EVERY position is an open competition. Not sure how he is incompetent when he hasn't even coached one game as a HC either. Rolling Eyes

Yea lets play the blame game and blame ponder for the team's failure last season. We made the playoffs the year befor that with Ponder. Ponder was not the problem, it was just bad luck and him having a small slump that was made look worsed by teammates not protecting him or fighting for the ball.

Frazier knew what he had to do. Run the ball and use Ponder sparingly, bring him along slowly.

This new HC thinks throwing the ball and using Peterson as a receiver is a grand idea. My god. I'm very skeptical this season.

I just don't think ponder or frazier were ever the problems.

You accuse us of drinking the purple kool-aid, you need to get off the Ponder-aid. He has no future here, he's best off getting a fresh start with another team. When that time comes best of luck to him.

OMG we have an offensive coordinator that wants to open up the passing game and actually utilize one of the biggest "freak" athletes with the ball in his hands in the league?

We are doomed. I'm gonna miss the old run-run-pass-punt offense.
