PFT on NBCSN: Christian Ponder


It’s going to be a buys weekend of roster moves around the NFL and we’ll have all the latest for you on Friday’s edition of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN, but we’ll also be talking to a player who won’t be doing much sweating about his job.

The Vikings won’t be cutting Christian Ponder, but the third-year player is definitely on the spot as the 2013 season gets underway. The Vikings made the playoffs last season largely on the back of Adrian Peterson, but the team went out and got some new targets for Ponder this offseason in hopes of giving them more options this time around. We’ll talk to Ponder about those new targets, Peterson and his expectations for the coming season.

And then we’ll get back to the roster moves that are taking place all around the league before Saturday’s deadline for teams to get to 53 players.

We’ll have that and all the rest of the biggest news of the day at 5:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

    Ponder hasn’t looked that great in the preseason but the Vikings’ preseason philosophy is to run the most bland offense they possibly can. Patterson and Simpson haven’t run more than 15 yards downfield and none of the Percy plays they ran last year have been used. Obviously, Adrian hasn’t played either. I’m withholding judgment on him until the regular season starts, but then judgment will be swift and brutal.

    Christian – shouldnt you be out there practicing that arm of yours rather than flapping your gums?

    The hapless and tasteless Vikings could not develop a QB to save their mother’s life.

    RG3 has “it”
    Russell Wilson has “it”
    Andrew Luck has “it”
    Kolin Kaepernick has “it”

    Christan Ponder… well, I’ll let you decide ….

    Tebow defeated Ponder in 2011 before he was blackballed!

    What more really needs to be said about the paperweight the Vikings have behind center?

    He’s dead weight to his team.

    Poor Adrian.
