Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier says he will decide later this week whether Josh Freeman or Christian Ponder will start at quarterback against Dallas on Sunday.
The Vikings have changed quarterbacks for four consecutive games while looking for some consistency and playmaking at the position. The only one to win a game this season for them is veteran Matt Cassel, who beat Pittsburgh in London three games ago.
Frazier says he believes Freeman or Ponder give the Vikings the best chance to win. Freeman was signed earlier this month and started against the New York Giants two weeks ago. But he suffered a concussion and forced Ponder back into the game against Green Bay on Sunday night.
Ponder struggled in a 44-31 loss to the Packers.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Sunday night was the opportunity Christian Ponder had waited for since a fractured rib took him out of the starting lineup for the Minnesota Vikings a month ago.
He was getting another chance to seize claim to the starting quarterback spot that had been his for more than two years and 29 consecutive regular-season starts. There's no telling when, or if, he will...
Christian Ponder said he was more relaxed, but it didn’t matter. He didn’t throw any interceptions or touchdowns as the offense sputtered for most of the game. Plus, one defender says the Vikings aren’t tough mentally and other notes.

Josh Freeman was awful last week. He threw 33 incompletions (only 3 of which were drops) on 20 of 53 passing for 190 yards and an interception against a team that was previously one of the worst in the NFL defensively.

The Vikings’ carousel of quarterbacks continues on Sunday night when Christian Ponder makes his first start since Sept. 22. Ponder is looking to get his first win since Dec. 30, 2012 when Minnesota beat Green Bay 37-34 at Mall of America Field. The only way this game is within a touchdown is if Adrian Peterson gets involved. The Vikings have the...
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder and his wife, ESPN reporter Samantha Ponder, went throwback for their Halloween costumes. The Ponders donned costumes from the 1993 classic baseball movie “The Sandlot.” Christian went as the excitable Squints and Samantha as the vivacious Wendy Peffercorn. What a little pervert.

Christian Ponder may not even be 1/1000th of the football player that Tom Brady is, but the Minnesota Vikings quarterback and his better half know how to do Halloween the right way.

Good tidings everyone and welcome, once again, to this quickly/drunkenly-typed post of one handsome man’s observations of Sunday Night Football. Wait, wait, wait. You’re telling me it’s time to watch Josh Freeman again already? Oh wait, he’s out with a concussion. Nice. So instead we get… Christian Ponder? Sigh.

In a battle that no team in the NFL is envious of, it appears that the Cleveland Browns have some competition.
The Browns’ miserable history at the quarterback position was chronicled on one special jersey that featured all 19 signal callers Cleveland has employed under center throughout the past 14 years.
Not to be outdone, the Minnesota Vikings took a cue from Cleveland’s signal...
Yes, it comes with a caveat that the last two opponents that Big Blue has faced are the Vikings (who started a newly acquired Josh Freeman a week and a half after signing him) and the Eagles (who sacrificed Mike Vick's hamstring to the football gods and played Matt Barkley as penance) but the Giants defense has looked incredibly good over the past couple of weeks.
For the 2nd consecutive week, the New York Giants won a football game by defeating the Philadelphia Eagles 15-7. Also, for the 2nd consecutive week, the Giants played against a team without their #1 Quarterback for the entire game. Last week, the Giants manhandled the Vikings mostly because Josh Freeman was forced into the starting role too soon. This week, an unhealthy Michael Vick...
