Aromashodu Impresses With Diving 1st-Quarter TD Catch

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 3, 2011 – 6:55 am

Prior to this season, the only memory Vikings fans had of WR Devin Aromashodu was of him sprinting under a Jay Cutler-thrown pass to haul it in and score a TD in overtime to defeat the Vikings at Soldier Field during the 2009 season. But now, Vikings fan can replace that memory with a better one.

Aromashodu did to the Chiefs what he did to the Vikings back in 2009, except it wasn’t a game-winning score in overtime. It was a 34-yard pass from Donovan McNabb in the 1st quarter that gave the Vikings an early 7-3 lead. Click here to watch a video replay of the TD.

On the play, Aromashodu was lined up wide on the left side of the field, with CB Brandon Carr lined up in coverage. The Chiefs were playing with a single high safety. McNabb was under center, took the snap, gave a little play-action fake to Peterson and saw that Aromashodu flew right past Carr. McNabb lofted a pass into the end zone and Aromashodu caught up to the pass, left his feet fully extended and was able to catch and maintain possession as he fell to the ground.

Even in a game that resulted in another Vikings loss, that play by Aromashodu is encouraging. And it makes you wonder what other kinds of plays the 4-year veteran can make if he’s given a chance. Aromashodu was a standout on special teams during the preseason, and I fully appreciate his value there. But I must also say it would be a welcomed addition to the offense if Aromashodu can find ways to make plays in the passing game, too.

    I always thought Aromashodu looked like a good player. Maybe a BB replacement!?!?

    Why is he not starting? I don’t know ask frazier the idiot who starts a non factor BB and gives him more play time than our most explosive receiver Harvin. Berrian is doing to much complaining and to little playing he has the nerves to say he’s always open just not being looked at wasn’t that his excuse last season when favre was here I thought he was more in sync with mcnabb truth is BB is washed up claiming he’s always open what he think he’s a 7/11 now

    Vikings sought WR Nanee first before the signing of Aromashodu. By luck of the draft order to the panthers we didn’t get him. Nanee having a poor year with Newton throwing all over the place. Dropped 50 yard bomb and a tipped ball returned for a bears interception td yesterday

    Aromashodu had a good catch yesterday, but he can’t be consistant if the ball isn’t delivered consistantly.

    How is it that you can ADD names to the tags section, but you can’t REMOVE the names that are irrelevant? Is the backspace key on your keyboard broken or something?

    I found having Childress’ name staring me in the face offensive early in the year… now its kind of blending in with the rest of the names. I mean, when so many of those listed are under performing, I guess it doesn’t really matter that much…

    One of the guys posted a link to an article that states that the ownership might pull the plug on McNabb this week regardless of what Frazier wants. First crack in the ownership/coach partnership? I hope so… Frazier is likeable enough (SO much better than Childress), but I’m not impressed with his results, whether at defensive coordinator or as head coach. His defensive scheme (cover 2) is complete and utter trash… it hasn’t worked since he’s started. He’s 3-7 as a head coach… too small a sampling to make a final decision on his ability to lead a team, but it isn’t looking good.

    Pondertime! This should be the week Frazier makes the decision to give Ponder his shot. We listened all summer long as the confident rookie stated that he was ready to take on the challenge. The Vikings brass sold us on their reasoning for taking Ponder in the 1st round. So why aren’t they making the move? The kid is very intelligent and has the heart to lead this team. It is painfully clear that McNabb is only a fraction of the QB he once was. I know we have OL issues but Ponder will do more to break the pocket and is actually more equipped than McNabb at this point. The coaches can’t watch film and feel good about what McNabb is doing for them. Now look at our schedule – if they don’t start him at home this week, we won’t see him until probably Carolina or Denver. Let him get the jitters out at home against an average team like Arizona. He can build a little confidence in this game before you throw him at the Bears and Packers. Now we all know this isn’t going to happen, the Vikes will let our ship fall to 0-7 before they make the move to Ponder. Come on Frazier, this is a business and you have to respect your friendship with McNabb separate from the football field. Washington saw this and let him easily walk. Please give our season a chance and stop the coach talk BS!

    The catch made by aromashdu was awesome and at that time it seemed to give MN a spark. They had plenty of opportunities to score points in that game but just blew it. I do agree that its time to make a change at QB whether its Ponder or Webb, they need to make some changes.

    Another comment, why don’t the vikings run the no-huddle offense more? I have seen GB run this and they were very successful with it. I like that they are trying to set up screens but they stink at that. Its not time to push the panic button yet but some changes definitely need to happen right now or you can kiss the playoffs goodbye!

    Ponder may one day be good but any time the other team pressures our offensive line they just collapse and the qb has no time to pass and has very few open options…play Ponder so he gets the experience but right now with our personal i dont think the results would be much different…

    Wobschall – You’re losing all respect of the fan base. That was one encouraging play from the most humiliating regular season loss the team has experienced in years. There’s some good in finding the positives, but it’s pointless if you’re not being objective.

    The topic of this article was perfect to give us an impression of what the coaches are thinking of certain underachieving WRs that could be moved down the depth chart after plays like this. The fans want change and are encouraged by the potential for change that we’re seeing. We want to know if the coaches are willing to adjust the plans they put together in June so that they can realize this potential. Mike, you’re the closest connection most of us have to any of this information, and we’re depending on you to give us some insight.

    Let’s not forget about that awesome 4th down catch that Berrian made! That’s two catches in only 4-games! Most people go their entire lives without ever catching a pass in the NFL, but Bernard is pulling it off multiple times a year!

    In all honesty, I had to slap myself to make sure that I wasn’t seeing things. Berrian usually drops the easiest throws and doesn’t make an attempt to grab the others. I can guarantee you, if it were Berrian on that TD throw he wouldn’t have gone after it. He would have just slowed down and complained that it was overthrown.

    I don’t think you guys think straight at all. What if Ponder goes in and stinks it up? Do you think the office wants to lose? What if 0-4 becomes 0-9…and so on under Ponder? Yea some of you want Luck….but he isn’t proven and nothing is certain in the NFL

    In all honesty, I think Frazier’s plan all along was to rebuild this team under McNabb. I think he wants to win some games…and depending on how the team finishes at the end of the season decide whether he wants to go with McNabb and more weapons for another year or go with Ponder. Fans always think they know best until they have to eat crow

    until Frazier wakes up and sees McNabb is killing this team. We will lose. If he were to make a switch to Ponder now, we have a slim chance of saving this season. As of right now, I see the Cards putting a beat down on us. Start Ponder, Star Demarcus Love at the left Tackle position, activate Chris Degree off the practice squad and put him in at right guard to replace Herrera, activate Mistral Raymond. The message the Vikings need is this. WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok forget this season ! We needed to bolster our OL and we didn’t everyone knew it but the Vikings management. Then we bring in 2 QB because they’re familiar with the offense we have been running for the last several years ! GUESS what we’re not running that offense anymore ! Then we’re gonna build the offense around AP but we need McNabb WHY ? I do not like Ponder but we drafted him & he can run away from our non blocking OL better than McNabb can or we can just pick up Andrew Luck in the next draft & that would probably be the best thing to do ! AP ALL DAY sorry we’re wasting your time & talent

  59. By Purples05 on Oct 3, 2011 | Reply

    TheRealDon…I’m just saying that I think he wants to give McNabb a fair chance. You may not choose to watch…but what would you do if the team improved and started to play great? I think he wants to see how comfortable McNabb can get with the offense. Unlike most Qbs in the NFL, McNabb has had 3 systems in 3 years. So I think he just wants to see McNabb’s true capablities and whether there’s a possible SuperBowl run in the future.

    If Ponder is truly great…..he’ll be great whether it’s this year, next year, or the year after. If he sucks….then he’ll suck.

    Not rebuild a team around McNabb per-se. But build the team in general. Aaron Rodgers came on the Packers with a good solid team. He had receivers and a solid defense….so all they needed was a better O-line and an even better defense. Ponder athletically is a younger Mcnabb in a way….they’re both somewhat mobile. So say they build the O-line…sign free agents…and then put Ponder in the best position to succeed? I honestly don’t want to evaluate Ponder yet…I think to evaluate him on such a flawed team is unfair. But again if Frazier sees potential with this offense in the weeks ahead…who knows

    You guys don’t expect Wobschall to start slamming his boss do you? You do a pretty good job for him each week. The Vikings will get on track and they will beat somebody that they aren’t supposed to beat. Just enjoy watching the Packers base get all excited for naught……that’s what I do when we have years like this. The Cheeseheads trophy case seems to be latest slam against the Vikings, but with all of them polishing each others trophy, it leaves little time to make cheese anymore. I will always love the rivalry….even when the Rams replace us in the division. We will meet again no doubt.

    Put the rookie in & see if he is worth the investment or if he is a bust. Losing with a rookie qb is not as bad as losing with a vet. Look at the lions, rams, jets, panthers, jags – they all ran with a rookie qb & they all did ok. You expect some growing pains with new coachs & players but this is just down right sickening. There was lots of talent in the draft for o-line, & lets face facts – Ponder was not going anywhere anytime soon!!!! Put him in & lets see where we are at the end of the season.

    I think Denver at home is now about the only game we could possibly win so I think we should be pretty firmly placed in the Luck sweepstakes, but knowing the vikes they would trade that pick for a bunch of other picks and pick up another 8 or 9 DE/DT and Linebackers, you know since those aren’t need areas

    Mcnabb is inaccurate. He misses receivers 3-4 times a game. For the Vikings coaches to watch film and not realize by starting Mcnabb they are pretty much giving up one series is mind boggling.

    They have a QB on the bench who can run faster than Mcnabb and who’s major strength in the draft was ACCURACY.

    By playing Ponder they might get a spark and save the season. Also by playing Ponder they will know if he is the future so they can draft for other needs in the next draft.

    Ponder seems like a no brainer to me.

    Why put Ponder into games with no deep receivers or O-Line protection? He won’t learn much by losing and getting sacked – it could even set him back permanently. When the rest of the team has no talent or fails to show up, no rookie QB can do much. Let Ponder learn from the sidelines and in practice while they rebuild at receiver and O-Line. If he’s expected to be the future of this franchise, they owe him at least that much.

    Let McNabb be the cannon fodder of this lost season – make him earn his bloated paycheck by getting humiliated, sacked and intercepted every Sunday. Make him stand there and listen to the Ponder chants in his home stadium. Make him mentor Ponder and Webb.

    Because if give the line good blocking fundimentals he won’t get sacked. Remember this is the line Brad Childress gave Leslie to work with. That doesn’t give you much. We got Charlie because we saw what he was going to do last season, and he ate to much McDonald’s Food. All that fast food got to him. Made him to slow to block people and let go right around and hit Favre. Just give it time and the line will come around.

    It’s Official Coach Frazier Is A Dumb A’ss

    Q: Is a quarterback change possible at this point?

    A: Based on these four games this season we are not at a point where we are making a quarterback change. There are a lot of things we need to correct on our football team based on the fact that we are 0-4. At this point a quarterback change isn’t one of those changes.

    Q: This Sunday against Arizona you expect McNabb to start?

    A: I do. I do expect him to be our starter, barring something that happens between now and then that I don’t know about.

    Good job Carl Someone actually see’s the light. The Vike’s for this season should have started Webb. Infact I believe that They should have just gotten a backup in free agency this year and waited for Andrew Luck or Kellen Moore. so we could have used the first round pick to get a good LT.

    @MG (And anyone else questioning the logic of putting Ponder in) – Ponder wants to start ASAP! In press conferences before the season, he continually reminded everyone that he is going to be fighting for the starting spot. It doesn’t matter if he has good players around him; a good QB will be begging to be on the field and run the team as best he can. A good QB will get sub-par players to rally around him and look better than they really are.

    It doesn’t matter when you put him in, there’s always the chance of him getting injured. You can’t learn how to take a hit by watching videos on your couch. You have to figure it out through experience. Why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up! Take off the training wheels and let Ponder learn how to pick himself up. He was deemed the most NFL ready rookie QB in the draft, but still there are at least 3-other guys (Newton, Gabbert and Dalton are who I can think of) who have already started for their teams.

    Another good reason to put Ponder in is to save on the trade price of McNabb. I’m not certain of the specifics of it, but I recall learning that it was a 2012 6th round pick plus a CONDITIONAL 6th round pick in 2013. Usually conditional picks are based on playing time or success. If in our case it’s success then forget this part of the rant. McNabb lost the “ess” of that about the same time he left Philly. If it’s playing time, then we can only lose more value by keeping McNabb in there.

    Chances are we’re stuck with McNabb until it’s statistically impossible to make the playoffs. That could take us into the bye week. If we don’t see Ponder after then, I doubt that Frazier will have the guts to put him in at all.

    i was very much in favor of starting ponder but what happens if ponder struggles because our wide recievers really arent that great and are OLine sucks. then we start saying ponder sucks and dont want him, starting him wont relaly give him a fair shot at proving anything, however i think ponder could be a good qb at this level. i think luck would be great and elite wer need to continue to tank and suck for luck. we lost to KC and thats how to get him, now we will probably lose to green bay twice, bears twice, lions on the road, oakland, ATl, and saints, thats 12 right there lets hope we lose this week, losing now and losing every game could mean many more wins and greater hope in the future. And leslie is a smart nice guy, but idk he is nice but maybe its time we get another coach that wont hold back . bill cowher or john gruden. long shot i know but hey i dare to dream.

    Jorge – The only way we’re drafting Luck is if Ponder proves to be a complete bust. The only way to prove that is to start him ASAP! If he’s not a bust, then we won’t be low enough to draft Luck anyways. But if we don’t start Ponder, then even when we go 0-16, management will trust that their 2011 #1 pick was worth the selection and pick up a kicker instead. Then we’d have to wait an extra full year to even see IF Ponder can handle it at this level. All reasoning at this point says that it’s time to toss the Rookie into the ring.

    Coach Fraizer still believes they are going to turn this thing around so no change at QB and not looking to 2012. Hmmm I am not sure that is a realistic view of what’s happening. We have the Cards in the dome. Last year we came back to win the game against the Cards and kept Chilly at the helm two more games. I think this game is the tell all for this team. Cards are a very beatable team, but we have to play our best football. They have a dangerous WR and can score from anywhere in the field. I am willing to give the coach one more shot at changing things around. What say you all come on WE are Vikings FANs. Let’s all Blow that Horn Barrooooohhhh.

    I think we need to start Ponder with the understanding that we might not win any more games with him in than with Mcnabb but at least he will be getting experience. I would rather the Vikings lose every remaining game this year with Ponder than win 1 or 2 games with Mcnabb (not that I think he’s capable of winning anything). The same goes with Berrian, we have seen what he is capable of (dropping p@sses) lets see what some of our young guys can do. START THE REBUILDING NOW.

    OK – enough is enough…

    List of players to PERMANENTLY ride the pine (don’t release them, make them watch):
    1. McNubb
    2. Berrian
    3. Sullivan
    4. the “other” safety (not Abdullah – yet)
    5. Charlie Johnson
    6. Cedric Griffin

    List of players to start in their place:
    1. Ponder
    2. Aromashadou (or Arcenaux, or Burton or my dead grandfather)
    3. Fusco
    4. Mistral Raymond
    5. DeMarcus Love
    6. Burton

    For those saying that Ponder should be “saved” from this team that “lacks talent” remember – in 2009 he had 2717 yards (68.8 completion %) 14 td, 7 int while running for 179 yards and 2 td; in 2010 he had 2044 yards (61.1 completion %) 20 td, 8 int while running for 180 yards and 4 td. This was in pretty much the same offense that the Vikes run with a startling (for FSU) lack of talent. He was the only offensive player to be selected in the draft the entire 4 years he was at FSU. END the excuses and start the kid – at least we would know if he was worth the 13th overall before we miss the chance at Luck.

    Getting rid of coaches at this point is a bad idea, I say. They’re developing a system, it’s a rebuilding year. You all know that. They’re just starting to flesh out the system. Don’t mistake me for being positive about what’s going on here, though. We do need to fix the O-line, start Ponder to give him some legitimate NFL experience, and do away with Berrian.

    I said it before, maybe Berrian would be better in the secondary. He’s fast and tall, but can’t catch for nothing, so put him in a position where he doesn’t necessarily have to actually catch the ball. And like someone else said, involve Webb more as a receiver. I love the WR corps we have, minus Berrian. Aromashodu, Jenkins, and of course Harvin are all great in my opinion. Definitely think Webb would be a great fit there, and it would make it less obvious when they call that ‘Blazer’ plays, since it’s not a given when he’s on the field.

    I will cheer for my Vikings no matter what. But It’s getting really really hard to cheer for them with McNabb playing quarterback.

    You do not change horses mid-stream. Give the guy a chance– he inherited a team with loads of issues. He has coached 25% of one season. And he has kept us in all 4 games– loss of 19 points — total— that is less than 5 points a game.

    Titus, do you think 10-6 would get us into he playoffs? And that would be winning 10 of the last 12. No way! Frazier should get one more year but McNabb or Berrian shouldn’t get even one more snap.

    Frazier I know McNabb was good in Philley but that was before he blew his knee. Plus know he is to old to make good decisions. Put in Webb for know because he can escape the rush. It would be just like last year with Vick Except Webb is more accurate, and faster. Put Webb in tell Ponder is ready because Ponder will someday be a better QB.

He is way too loyal to a guy when EVERYONE AND THEIR DOG is saying that Ponder should be playing. Wake up man Donovan is useless now and I have no interest in watching the team next week with him under centre. But at least Leslie brings that strong defensive mindset to the team…LOL jk the defence gets run over on a week to week basis, by KC no less. Ship Frazier and McNabb please and this season can start

    Why not put webb in there, how is ponder the backup the guy can barely pass for 10 yards he’s like mcnabb. Either overthrows or underthrows, webb is the best option for the backup, but the coaches have a mancrush on ponder so it will be that way. Webb is more composed and has a smooth sailing when he releases the ball he has a knack to find open guys even under pressure whether its a light dump off or a dart through the middle. By the way webb scrambles he can also hit the homerun if not paid attention to. Can make a negative play turn into a big play with his legs he is a threat. Having ap, harvin, and webb as qb sure does create headaches.

    Bottom line is this. Vikings receivers stink, especially BB, oline stinks, qb stinks, and their defense stinks. That pretty much is the whole team. The only good guys they have is AD, and harvin on offense and Jared Allen and Greenway on defense. 4 guys cant make up the whole team…. This team is bad. And i think we all need to quit being so delusional about how good this team is. Brett Favre made this team what it was 2 years ago folks and no one else. Without him, this team was just an slightly above average team at best. The only difference now is the oline back then used to block and make holes for AD and they did a decent job protecting the qb. They dont anymore… C’mon they lost to KC. KC freakin stinks! This is a team that gave up 40+ points to the bills and the lions! I’m surprised SD only scored 20 points against them. This team scored 7 points against the bills and 3 against the lions. And they beat us….. Get real. They aren’t going to beat the cards next week. Not with mcnabb at qb. I’ve been positive about this team until last game. but being positive has only done nothing but crush us fans at the end . Maybe being negative might get them a win for once against an average cardinals team.

  262. By Animal26 on Oct 3, 2011 | Reply

    Sorry Be sane and Serious, it would be nice to be sane and serious, but this team really makes that hard to do at this time. We have a head coach that is way too laid back, the majority of the players have from what I’ve seen the same laid back attitude as Frazier, causing them to have no killer instinct. McNabb not being able to hit an open receiver, if his life depended on it, and a defense who just looks old. Then to top it off with an 0-4 record. There is a tiny chance we can turn things around, but that would only happen, if they put ponder in. Unlike McNabb, Ponder has a reputation of being very accurate with the ball. He is a gutsy kid, who from preseason, seems to have that spark, swagger, and KILLER INSTINCT the offense is lacking.

    After the QB position, lets look at the Offensive line. Excluding Hutchinson, Herrera, Sullivan, Johnson and Loadholt are the weakest links on this line. We have some talented rookies who are just waiting to get in there in Brandon Fusco and Demarcus Love. We also have a guy on the practice squad by the name of Chris Degree, who showed a lot of promise and he would be a big upgrade from herrera. Demarcus love and Brandon Fusco may be a little raw, but in the preseason they showed some real potential to be great linemen. Lets see what they have to offer and go from there. Rolling the dice on ponder and these three offensive linemen is the only thing I can see, that might turn the Vikings season around. Then again, maybe I’m being a hopeless dreamer.
