The Vikings are set to face the Washington this Thursday and the starting QB will not be surprise. Leslie Frazier said after Sundays game that Ponder played well enough that he deserved to start against Washington.
“As we speak, I don’t see why we would make a change,” coach Leslie Frazier said of the quarterback position, manned Sunday by Christian Ponder.
“Sometimes after ballgames you make emotional decisions,” Frazier said, “but I don’t see anything that tells me he shouldn’t start against the Redskins.”
“It’s what I need,” Ponder said. “I need to be out there playing. I’m happy that I’m out here playing, but losing sucks. We’ve got to make sure that we get this turned around and go out there and win.”-TwinCities.com
I think that consistency at the QB position is exactly what Minnesota needs. It’s hard enough to be a consistent team but when the QB position is a revolving door it is that much harder. Christian Ponder played adequately in the teams loss to the Cowboys, accumulating a passer rating of 82.7.
