    *looks at other nominees*

    Cam Newton vs Redskins
    Von Miller vs Dolphins
    DeMarco Murray vs Rams
    Mark Ingram vs Colts

    Ponder was the only one that faced off against a tough foe. He fared really well against that Packer DL. However, it seems everyone is talking about Murray’s impressive performance, but lets face it. They went up against the Rams. THE RAMS. So really, Ponder does deserve the reward.

    Already have voted….Just wondering when Joe Webb will see some playing time….Or is Frazier just going to throw him to the bone yard? Could have sure used Joe on some Wildcat play(s) in the GreenBay Game…What was Frazier thinking of?…Wasn’t thinking…Just standing there with his Headset on, with that glazed look on his face…Watched the game again..Frazier just standing there in a fog on the sideline…Yay, Coach…We’ll get ‘em next time….

    Good bye Berrian and thank goodness.

    Berrian’s gone just like that. Looks like poor performance and a big mouth equals looking for work.

    Has Jason La Canfora heard anything about the status of the cursed TAG CLOUD.

    Maybe BB is making room for TO???

  16. By GM on Oct 25, 2011 | Reply

    Thank you for the 11 touchdowns.

    Ponder played well and I am impressed, but those numbers posted in the article do not look impressive— it is a 40% completion rate.

  18. By Animal26 on Oct 25, 2011 | Reply

    I doubt we’re going after TO. If I remember correctly he only wants to be on a team that can make the playoffs this year. Also, he would probably cost too much.

    wonder if this guy is any good, since the Vikings seem interested in signing him. http://www.twincities.com/ci_19182285?source=most_viewed

    That said, I still vote for Ponder.

    Worst part about releasing Berrian is that they can’t get anything in return. Even a 5th or 6th round pick would have been something.

  22. By New Vike on Oct 25, 2011 | Reply

    That was the going price for Brandon LLoyd, there was no way the Vikes woulda got that from BB

    Hey mike are you going to put up a blog about how we cut BB?

  25. By Twoodsnvikes on Oct 25, 2011 | Reply

    We activated Stephen Burton…. I was thinking Arceneaux might give us a better chance, but we’ll see what the kid can do

  26. By matthias on Oct 25, 2011 | Reply

    Cook probably will stay up to 3 years in prison ( girlfriend has a brocken nose and other injuries ). Therefor he maybe cut till the end of the season. Do we get an additional 5th to 7th round pick for him?

  27. By Frederick Jones on Oct 25, 2011 | Reply

    We’ve had a tendency to draft picks where we are already STRONG.

    Tight End, Running Back, Defensive Line, and Quarterback.

    We need to FIX our three weak areas;;;; OFFENSIVE LINE,
    DEFENSIVE BACKS, AND WIDE RECEIVER.

    boring, tiring, monotonous,

    TOO BAD. DRINK MILK…. AND CHOOSE OL, DB, AND WR….

    DrOWsap– get outta here and stop wasting precious blog space. I don’t want to read your immature 2nd grader taunts. Get a life and do something good for humanity. Volunteer at Salvation Army if you are so high and mighty — a lot of good you are doing feeding your depressed and insecure ego on the opposing team’s website. Nothing to do, huh? GET OUTTA HERE!
