Brian Billick says 'Time to start holding Christian Ponder accountable'

Posted by: under Vikings, Percy Harvin Updated: February 26, 2013 - 12:14 PM

Only 58 days remain until the NFL Draft begins.

Only.

So for the next eight-and-a-half weeks, we're going to hear a lot of analysis on what the Vikings will need to do. At present, everyone's on the same page that the Vikings' receiving corps needs help. Earlier today, we offered you 12 potential targets for the team.

Now, it's time to turn the floor over to NFL analysts Charles Davis and Brian Billick.

Billick, the former Vikings' offensive coordinator, offered this take on where the offense stands:

"I think it's time to start holding Christian Ponder accountable. But only if they give him the proper weapons. Percy Harvin is a heck of a weapon. And when he was healthy, he was a great way to go. They don't have that big shot down the field. They were hoping Jerome Simpson could be that. They don't have that. That's got to be a top priority. For me, I've got to come out with a big play weapon down the field."

For all of what Billick and Davis had to say, watch this:
