Zimmer defends Ponder after positive performance

It took less than 20 seconds for Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer to bring up Christian Ponder in his post-game press conference after tonight’s 19-3 win over the Titans in the preseason finale, and he again staunchly defended the third-string quarterback. “I’m especially proud of Christian Ponder because I know there’s been a lot of fans and a lot of people that have really been negative towards him,” Zimmer said. “And the guy’s been nothing but a first-class guy, works hard every single day and went on to perform well tonight.” Ponder replaced starter Teddy Bridgewater at the...

What Should Ponder’s Future With The Vikings Hold?

LET’S TALK ABOUT CHRISTIAN PONDER YOU GUYS RAWR RAWR RAWR One of our most favoritest topics around here is the news surrounding our failed first round pick and current third string quarterback, Christian Ponder. I mean, lord knows I'm constantly dying to hear how he's doing, what's new with him, all the latest gossip! But in all seriousness though, there has been a fair amount of discussion regarding his future with the team.
