Ponder Out for Wild Card Playoff Game Vs Packers

The road to round two for the Vikings just got a lot tougher, as Christan Ponder will sit for tonight’s game vs the Packers due to a elbow injury.

Ponder sitting means that Joe Webb, who hasn’t thrown a pass this season, will go as the starting QB.

Ponder was hurt when Packers safety Morgan Burnett delivered a jarring hit on a blitz when the teams played last Sunday. Ponder finished the game with a career-high 120.2 passer rating and three touchdowns in the 37-34 win.

His participation in practice this week was limited and Webb took many of the turns with the first team offense. Ponder was listed as questionable on the injury report, though, and he took only about a dozen soft, short throws in early warm-ups.

    The vikes would have played ponder even with this injury if they truely believed in him.
    Come on it’s the playoffs.
    I guess this is the saving face way of saying their confidence is low on him.
    But what’s worse,throwing Webb in a playoff game without taking a snap all year?
    Look how that turned out……
    Anyway Frazier/spielman go out and get a free agent qb, or start trying to deal to move up in the draft.
    Stop BS ing yourselves and the fans.
    You do not have a franchise qb on this roster.
    Peterson deserves a better option at qb or we can expect him to quit like Barry Sanders….out of frustration.
