Christian Ponder knows there is a lot to correct across the board for the Vikings, but he doesn’t believe a change at quarterback is coming in the next week.
BEST OF MAXIM
Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder has now been intercepted five times in his first three games.Fantasy Spin:He's only thrown two touchdowns over that span. At least Ponder (25-for-42, 228 yards, one INT) had the decency to rush for 46 yards on five carries Sunday against Cleveland, though it probably wasn't enough to salvage the day for most fantasy owners.
MINNEAPOLIS - Shortly after Sunday's 31-27 loss to the depleted Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier looked every bit as defeated as his 0-3 team.
Frazier scratched his head lamenting a loss in which his defense came up with four turnovers. Offensive line struggles, an inability to run on one of the league's best run defense and another failure defensively...
Christian Ponder’s play (or lack of) has been a hot topic during the Vikings 0-3 start. Adrian Peterson said that the criticism that the QB takes is “unfair” and others just flat out call him a bum. Ponder has said his confidence isn’t shaken yet but QB coach Craig Johnson had some thoughts:
“The bottom line is — and he knows this — if you do not win the game, you’re...
Christian Ponder has had a wildly inconsistent ride in his 28 starts, but the Vikings are hoping he can build off his second half from last Sunday and make that the norm.
The Vikings are off to a not so hot 0-3 start and the fans are understandably turning their anger towards QB Christian Ponder. Even though he had a couple nice athletic TD runs yesterday, fans don’t view him as the answer at QB. However, their star RB Adrian Peterson believes it’s unfair:
“I got his back. He scored two touchdowns and kept us in the game,” Peterson said...
Vikings fans were angry and booing Christian Ponder off the field after failed drives. Leslie Frazier isn’t inclined to make a change yet, but with the Vikings owners in attendance Sunday in the Metrodome, they had to have heard the booing of Ponder.
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder isn’t very good. Doesn’t take an NFL expert to realize that. Even before he was drafted in the 1st rounds (way too high) I always thought his ceiling was at best a game manager. In the mold of Mark Sanchez with those AFC Championship Jets squads. The Vikings are 0-3 […]

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings enter Sunday's home game with a sense of urgency following their 0-2 start.
Sunday's opponent, the Cleveland Browns, added to the urgency early this week by making moves at quarterback and running back that sent Minnesota searching for film in preparation. Not only have the Vikings not faced Cleveland since 2009 and the Browns...
Three weeks into the season, and it is very clear that I don’t know anything about football. Oh, would you like me to expand upon that observation? Sure! Let’s look at the teams I picked to win their divisions and see how those teams are doing three weeks into the season, shall we?
NFC East: New York Giants, 0-3 – The Giants have been terrible so far this season. -61 point...
Someone will win Sunday’s game between the Cleveland Browns and Minnesota Vikings.
Despite denying reports that they are tanking the season the Brows traded away running back Trent Richadson and will start third string quarterback Brian Hoyer for this game.
Things are not exactly going right for the Vikings either. They are 0-2 and questions are again circulating about the ability...
