Christian Ponder, Minnesota Vikings Have High Expectations

Quarterback Christian Ponder is entering his second season in the NFL for the Minnesota Vikings.  Ponder had a sub-par year last season as he played in 11 games throwing 13 touchdowns and 13 picks.  However, this year, Ponder is coming in with lofty goals for himself. Earlier in training camp, Ponder mentioned to the media that it was his goal and the Vikings goal to score...

Vikings want QB Ponder to take a dive, stay alive

The Minnesota Vikings want Christian Ponder to be safe when he carries the ball. By diving head first. Most quarterbacks are taught to avoid contact and end the play by sliding feet first. But offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave has provided video evidence for Ponder of his belief that going down head first is less of an injury risk. The subject came up when Ponder scrambled around...

Ponder, Vikings' offense still work in progress

MINNEAPOLIS From the very first play of Friday's third preseason game, the Minnesota Vikings' offense couldn't find the right timing and quarterback Christian Ponder looked more the inconsistent 10-game starter from his rookie season last year than the confident captain of the offense he had shown through two preseason games.On the first play from scrimmage, Ponder stepped...

Flacco, Ravens on target vs. Jags

Joe Flacco completed 27 of 36 passes for 266 yards and two touchdowns before leaving early in the third quarter, and the Baltimore Ravens cruised to a 48-17 preseason victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night.

Week 3 of the preseason brings game plans into the picture; 5 things to watch

Blaine Gabbert's first win as a starter in the NFL came against the Ravens on Monday Night Football last year. The question is if he can improve on that night's performance tonight. We've reached week 3 of the preseason, and this is as real as it gets. Coaches tend to utilize game planning for the third preseason game of the year, and first team players usually...

Razor-sharp Flacco minus MJD= Ravens 48, Jaguars 17...

Joe Flacco has improved to a new level of excellence. Maybe working with Peyton Manning's old QB coach Jim Caldwell has something to do with it. Mostly it's just Joe Flacco maturing to the next stage of his learning curve in the NFL...Certainly the absence of hold-out Maurice Jones-Drew (50% of Jacksonville's offense last season) had a LOT to do with it...But the Ravens...

Washington Redskins Will Test Indianapolis Colts’ Run Defense

For all the talk about the quarterback matchup between Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III in this week’s preseason showdown between the Indianapolis Colts and Washington Redskins, the more compelling matchup will be the Redskins’ running game against the Colts new defensive scheme. In the Redskins, the Colts will see a rushing attack from head coach Mike Shanahan that produced...

Ravens 13, Jaguars 3 at halftime; quick thoughts

The Jaguars struggled to stop the Ravens' offense in the first half, and the result is a 13-3 deficit. Blaine Gabbert is 8 of 14 for 83 yards. Rashad Jennings has 57 rushing yards on 13 carries, and Justin Blackmon has 72 receiving yards on 4 receptions. Here's some quick thoughts: Blaine Gabbert is hitting too many short checkdowns for little to no gain. It seems like...

Why the Jacksonville Jaguars will prove everyone wrong

Every 2013 NFL Mock Draft I have seen has the Jaguars listed as being projected to have the number one draft pick. Last year it seemed the Washington Redskins led the way in 2012 mock drafts in terms of  winning the ‘Suck for Luck’ sweepstakes, and didn’t draft Andrew Luck at all. This year, everyone is [...]

Ravens get on board first

The Ravens’ offense, which has looked sluggish in the first two games this preseason, has come out firing. Quarterback Joe Flacco is throwing the ball all over the field and running back Ray Rice has found some space to run through. However, the Ravens have fizzled both times they’ve had the ball. THe second time, kicker Justin Tucker made a 33-yard field goal. Baltimore leads...

NFL Win Total Over/Unders: Jacksonville Jaguars

Every season RDM obsesses on the NFL team win total over/unders. It’s one of the more fun bets in all of sports. A single well-placed bet turns an otherwise random team into a must see weekly event. Today we look at the 2012 Jacksonville Jaguars. The number: 4.5 Thinking back on the 2011 season, I recall the Jaguars being one of the worst teams in the league. With that said, the...

7 Questions about the Redskins preseason game

In 1998 the debate about the best quarterback available in the draft centered around the word "upside." While most appreciated Peyton Manning's football acumen, pedigree and polish most agreed that Ryan Leaf had a better arm as well as the potential to grow more. The pundits felt Manning was too ready. In hindsight they look like the buffoons in Major League proclaiming...

Redskins vs Colts, Week 3 - A Tale of Two Realities

It is the best of times, it is the worst of times, it is the age of wisdom, it is the age of foolishness, it is the epoch of belief, it is the epoch of incredulity, it is the season of Light, it is the season of Darkness, it is the spring of hope, it is the winter of despair, we have everything before us, we have nothing before us ...Best?
