Ponder is not the reason the Vikes are 0-3. Can he be a difference maker? I hope so. But there were 3 occurences the last game that are causing me to think the Vikes need to cut bait and see what someone else can do.

1. The fumble just before the half. Yes he was bumrushed, but he had to see it coming. Eat the ball and take the 3 points.
2. Failure to hit a wide open Joe Webb in the endzone. He has poor accuracy that has been shown before and often, but this cost them an opportunity to put the game away.
3. Poor execution of the 2 minute offense. Why are you trying to complete a seven yard pass in the middle of the field with 30 seconds left and no timeouts? The odds of scoring were poor, but cmon man at least give yourself a chance.

As long as I'm on my soapbox I have to say that I can't believe the Vikes coaches did not protest the 15 yard penalty when Frazier threw the challenge flag. That cost them a shot at possible points as well.
