Minnesota Vikings quarterback Donovan McNabb certainly hasn’t set the NFL on fire so far this season. His quarterback rating in the low eighties is not up to the expectations of the organization or the fans. His completion rate of over sixty percent is a little misleading because he has only thrown for around a thousand yards.
Because of the aforementioned data, head coach Leslie Frazier has decided to allow Christian Ponder to take snaps behind center this season. I don’t have a problem with removing McNabb from the situation, but it is certainly a peculiar time to do so. Two of the next three games are against the storied Green Bay Packers.
The Packers have been firing on all cylinders this season and are undoubtedly the top performers in the NFC thus far. It seems like the Vikings are throwing Ponder to the wolves. Another pertinent analogy could be that he has to either sink or swim in this situation.
Critics will insinuate that the team is trying to lose to increase its stand...
