We will see. As a Vikings fan, I am still not sure about Ponders qb skills. I really don't see him doing much.

Week 1: 20/27, 270 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT

What a game from the guy. Started off slow but never lost his confidence that was evident from the start. AD was looking good so they pounded him at the goal line like they should and he was effective after Ponder led them deep into the red zone.

Looked comfortable in the pocket and extended plays like he's known for when he needed to. Harvin was Harvin, exploding after short catches and racking up the YAC. Rudolph appears to have emerged as his #2 target. Credit to Jenkins for having a solid game and Aromashodu for making catches in a couple of clutch situations.

With 1:20 left Blaine Gabbert led the Jags from around their own 25 yd line all the way down for the go ahead TD and then got the 2 point conversion to put them ahead by 3, 23-20. The energy was sucked out of the dome and it seemed like a bad loss. With 20 seconds left and 3 timeouts, Ponder drove about 40 yards to the Jags 38 and Blair Walsh nailed the 55 yard FG to send it to OT.

Ponder led another efficient drive in OT, setting up Walsh for the go ahead TD. The D shut the door and Vikes take the win 26-23.

The young man is improving, what a performance to open the season.

OK. Ponder looked good today.

Skol Vikes baby.. I live near the Wisconsin border and I can't tell you how many times I've already rubbed it into some people that the Packers are last in the NFC North now, lol.

Secondary was pretty bad today with the exception with your occasional much needed stop.

Run D looked good, shame JA couldn't rack up a sack today.

AP was ****ing amazing. I was nearly brought to tears with his effort today after that injury no more than 250 days ago. Our running game is going to be amazing this year. Gearhart is a very competent backup and he put up numbers late last season (last 4 weeks or so). If only AP can progress into catching... but whatever. When he made that huge run in OT I ****ing screamed my heart out.

Ponder is gaining a rapport with our receiving corps. I love how much he's melding with Percy and Rudolph, and the quick checks down the middle he's doing. We got the speed and size for receivers to be there.

I can't believe what a roller coaster of a game it was. I know it was the Jaguars, and they aren't that good. But you guys need to remember that Blaine Gabbert threw a miracle touchdown when all we had to do is stop them at 3rd and 9 a few plays earlier. We had 20 seconds on the clock at the return and then Ponder was given 14 seconds to shine with 3 timeouts up there. I was so pissed off. I was cursing at our defense, literally just so upset. Then it happened...

BLAIR ****ING WALSH!!!!!

53 yarder to force OT... and the rest was history. Complete bliss watching us win this game.

This game did so much for our confidence. We began last season with 5 first half chokes and about 4 4th quarter chokes in the first 5 weeks. We had the best offense in the NFL yet we our defense turned into spaghetti in the clutch.

Our defense needs an identity. I appreciated Harrison Smith's feistyness. Cook had balls with the sack he made today. Josh Robison looked pretty decent as well. They just need to grow. They're all young.

Our O-Line with Kalil anchoring it (yes, he's anchoring it already) was amazing today. Set up some great gaping holes for AP and it kept Ponder relatively safe.

Let's prove everyone wrong... let's **** up some other team's playoff hopes.

Skol Vikes.

Vikings finally started moving the chains once we kept throwing to Harvin. We need to force feed him and AP

I actually like Ponder coming out but I think his only problem may be that he plays smaller than he is and he doesn't have the pocket presence I'd like from a QB but that's expected from a young QB. From the times I've seen him play last year he seemed to rely on his feet too much and not stay in the pocket but he'll be a good QB nonetheless.

He played pretty average. In the first half he was pretty bad but he made some decent throws to tie the game. The game was lost through penalties, even from the likes of Allen who seemed to care more about his sack count than winning the game.

The defense needs to improve on 3rd downs. Not much else to say. Ponder's numbers look good to this point but he hasn't been a force driving them to win or anything.

Ponder will be elite within a couple years. Better than Aaron Rodgers.
