Vikings fans feel a bit restless

A common comment

"Ponder is the incredible shrinking quarterback. 7 games in and he throws downfield less than ever. I don't believe guys aren't ever open. He's terrified of throwing it."


And in the same vein ...

"Ponder is regressing. Mistakes are one thing, but never learning from them, and repeating them over and over is disturbing."


The natives are restless

"The only person that kept Peterson from a 200-yard day was his offensive coordinator."

--A comment from ActTwo at

On the positive side ...

"Look everybody, we are not your typical football team. We can play up or down depending on our opponent! It's genius! Ask the forty niners!"
