They should have done this after Week Three:
Christian Ponder is in and Donovan McNabb is out in Minnesota. Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier has chosen Ponder as the team’s starting quarterback, Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports.
It may not be enough. It probably won’t be enough. But at least we’ll find out what we have in Ponder and McNabb certainly wasn’t working in even the modest capacity that everyone envisioned for him. Hand off and throw a few passes to convert the occasional third down was all that was expected, but he couldn’t even manage the latter half of the equation.
