Sansevere: Ponder one reason to watch Vikings

The Vikings have one win. That would be great if the season was only a week old. But unless your memory is as unreliable as the Vikings' secondary, you know they have played seven games and have just that one win and six losses. If you do the math, you'll realize the Vikings would have to win eight of their final nine games to finish with a winning record. Chaz Bono has...

Receiver corps helping Ponder get up to speed

The Minnesota Vikings receiver corps is a unit in turmoil these days, with veteran Bernard Berrian getting shown the door for underperforming earlier this week. That just means the receivers who are still around have to work that much harder to make sure rookie quarterback Christian Ponder gets up to speed as quickly as possible. Ponder made his first career start in a 33-27 loss...

Rudolph getting better as each week passes

Back in April, the Minnesota Vikings drafted quarterback Christian Ponder 12th overall and tight end Kyle Rudolph 43rd overall in the hopes of re-energizing the passing attack and putting together a duo that would give fans something to cheer about for years to come. Six months later, the plan is at least starting to take shape. Ponder got his first NFL start last Sunday, and Rudolph...

Olof vs. Nils: Is Frazier doing the right things?

Is Frazier doing all the right things as head coach?Olof:Leslie Frazier is absolutely doing a great job for the Vikings. He knew the time was right to end the McNabb era and give Christian Ponder his chance. And look how Ponder responded! He almost beat those durn Packers. He also made the right call getting rid of Bernard Berrian. That man was becoming a huge distraction. You can’t...

Carolina Panthers (2-5) vs. Minnesota Vikings (1-6)

NFL Power Rankings Week 8: Horrible Football Edition

We are seven weeks into the NFL season and I have no clue what to make of it. Teams are wildly inconsistent and we may have just had the worst week of games yet. We had three nearly unwatchable games (Browns-Seahawks, Broncos-Dolphins, Ravens-Jaguars), the “return” of Carson Palmer, and the worst combination of prime time football games since ‘Nam. The Saints scored more points...
