Vikings coach Leslie Frazier announced today that Christian Ponder would start Sunday against the Packers. “We are looking forward to him leading our team to victory, and other guys around him stepping up,” Frazier told reporters.
Ponder’s coming off a 53.0-rating day against the Seahawks (though he was better in his previous three starts) and since reclaiming the starting job after Freeman was rushed into action for a start, Ponder has been acceptable at best.
The fact they’re not even willing to look at Freeman with a 2-8 record makes you wonder what he’s showing them in practices and meetings.
