Peterson Runs Vikings To 14-7 Halftime Lead

Posted by Mike Wobschall on December 9, 2012 – 1:31 pm

It didn’t take long for Adrian Peterson to extend his consecutive 100-yard rushing games streak on Sunday, as he finished the 1st quarter with 103 yards on the ground. Peterson took a handoff on the first play of the game and rumbled 51 yards to set the Vikings up for the first score of the game.

The Vikings wound up scoring two TDs in the 1st half – both from Peterson – and that paced them to a 14-7 lead at halftime. Peterson finished the 1st half with 18 carries and 125 yards rushing.

Bears QB Jay Cutler hit rookie WR Alshon Jeffery for a score near the end of the half to keep Chicago close.

Peterson, who entered the day as the NFL’s leading rusher by over 300 yards, now has 7 straight 100-yard games. At halftime, Peterson

    Plant your feet Ponder…And throw the football…That was an easy TD missed…

    OTK let’s be honest that’s a bad decision. He was trying to force it. Rookie mistake.

    If he couldn’t set it up properly he should have thrown it away was only 1st down.

    Mike.

    Lets Bench Ponder, he only was 6 completions and One INT. That pass was horrible, he is costing us the game. Its a Team win, not a AP run him till he gets hurt.

    You note the “company man” Wobs failed to mention Ponder stats……

    OTK, Ponder is too much the wuss, when have you seen him plant his feet? He even made HUGE point of this in his own pressers last two weeks – “I need to set my feet…”

    The guy can’t even LEARN from his mistakes. This is a kid who burn himself to death if he love pyromania instead of football.

    WHY would you blame Aromashodu on that??? Yes, he couldve fought for the ball, go up to its highest point, but he had guys beat by 5-7 yeards and it was so badly FLOATED and undertrhown, THAT is what happens… incomplete or Interecepted.

    On Ponder, NOT Aromashodu.Aroma is not a great receiver, so can’t expect a great play from him… but a NFL QB who cannot throw a ball to wide open receiver??? That means he is NOT an NFL QB

    Of course he didn’t, he is not very good – YOU know that…. so WHY is that carp throw and incompletion HIS fault when he was WIDE OPEN?

    Ponder doesn’t bother you enough apparently, that you will now suggest our very average to bad receivers should suddenly be Brandon Marshall?

    Ponder threw that ball 10-12 yds short on HIM

    Sure, Ponder had his moments. But he makes too many mistakes with too little good plays. He plays like a rookie when he’s not.

    Our wide-receivers are good, our running back is AMAZING, both our lines are good, our secondary is good, our tight-ends good, but our QB STINKS! No, that’s an understatement. HE SUCKS!

    I have tried to root for Ponder for as long as I have been able to stomach it, but over the last couple weeks I can’t stand it anymore. It is embarrassing to see him on the field and call him our starting qb. He is unwilling to step up in the pocket or stand in the face of pressure to deliver a pass. He scrambles out of the pocket too early way too often and it just seems that he cannot read a defense. The sad part of all of this is where is the future at qb for this team? What options do the Vikings have via the draft or free agency? At this point I say let Joe Webb finish the season as the starter, it really can’t hurt as he will give us a much better chance to win than Ponder can.

    We cannot rely on Peterson to carry the entire offense, but with Ponder at QB it is far and away our best chance to win. Poor AP, an absolute beast this season and poor QB play is on the verge of costing us a playoff spot. It is hard to watch the Vikes when the rest of the team plays well enough to beat the Packers at Lambeau, but the QB single handedly lost the game for us.

    The receivers need to get free, as well as the TE’s. Without that, Ponder is stuck relying on Peterson. Also, I am not sure who is calling the plays, but that needs to be re-evaluated. The defense is never being surprised…at least the blind side is getting better protection.

    Good effort by the team today. The only thing I can say good about Ponder is that he’s converted a few third downs. Sad that our standards are so low for QB. Some of that is due to the fact that AP is so good. But Ponder isn’t a good QB. Period.

    @Titus, and friends,

    Now I know what you are going to say. That he has had some opportunities. But even if that is true, the opportunities he has had, he has been successful.

    JoneDoggOfFrederick says that Joe Webb has NEVER had an opportunity to prove himself.

    To say otherwise is Predjudice, racial or otherwise.

    (But, but, but Frazier is Black…the pink panther is pink!!!…it don’t not matter…it’s society he fights against)

    Ponder is out of talent. We now have our own Tebow. Soon we will start losing effort from our guys as they are asked to keep playing un-inspired football. He will never be Manning, Brady, Brees, or even, Luck, Bradford or RG3, so why waste time on him other than the fact MGMT doesn’t want to accept the fact they made a bad financial gamble on him that didn’t pay off….WAR JOE WEBB.

    Frederick, you are absolutely right, Joe has NEVER been given that unequivocal chance… a game here or there and a relief appearance or two does NOT constitute an “opportunity”. And while Ponder Fs around with our football team and doesn’t do anything of merit, he doesn’t even “manage” the game anymore, WHY not Webb?

    @Titus,

    If Ponder plays enough, perhaps he will become confident. It’s also possible the Vikings may give up on him next year, and draft or trade for someone.

    All of this without giving JOE an opportunity. Joe Webb could be the answer.

    If we are not going to use Webb, I agree with an earlier poster, put Peterson in backfield and hike right to him and put another blocker in there. Just give up on the charade that we will be passing at all.

    Ponder is not going to his 100 yards again…. sick, just plain sick.
    Press ought to just quit talking to him! He has nothing new to say

    “I have to keep working, I have to just get better. I can’t keep doing that. I can’t throw across my body, that is the first lesson of a QB. I have to just put this behind me. I have to get better. I am just going to keep working hard.”

    Just would love to see some bold decisions from the mgmt for a change. I’ve been pulling for these cats since the 80’s, so, I’ve been tortured long enough with the same old same old. The Favre era was special (even though it ended horribly). It was special because, he inspired everyone on the team to play hard, believe in each other and over achieve, it was plain to see Oh and I still f’n hate the Saints for the way that NFC Championship game went down. But, anyway…..GO VIKES!

    You are right. Someone needs to point out the positives. Jones did point out that we are going from 3-13 to a probable 8-8 season. That is what the jonedoggy predicted in pre-season 8-8.

    We all want those long completions, and we’re not getting them. Maybe next year?

    We were able to overcome our weakness in Ponder again and get another win. It’s going to be difficult to get everyone to play their best when it’s obvious Ponder is getting a pass for his ongoing dismal performances.

    Mike B. can blindly side with everything they do all he wants. Truth is Ponder isn’t very good and he’s not the future of any football team.
    Am I glad we won the game?
    Of course I am, but that doesn’t mean I can’t see what’s in plain sight.
    Ponder was a Harrison Smith pick six away from having to show how poor of a QB he is once again.
    Peterson is legendary.
    The defense plays well at home.
    Ponder isn’t a good quarterback.
    Oh and it isn’t so much that recievers can’t get seperation.
    Ponder just can’t find them, or “throw them open”.

    @Spencer,

    It may be political. Jones heard them say that on KFAN. Frazier may feel he has to play Ponder because the QB is Spielman’s boy.

    To play Webb would be to go against executive orders.

    Stranger things have happened in corporations, why not a pro sports team?

  262. By saddy on Dec 9, 2012 | Reply

    Vkes- or -die you shut the f-ck up already. If Ponder wants respect from fans he has to play like it, even on the jenkins catch it was thrown too high, if it was not for jenkins it would have been tipped and an interception.

    What would have happened today if defense didn’t have those 2 interceptions, yes Ponder would have been embarassed.

    Fans can raise their concerns, Ponder is too nervous behind the pocket even if there is good protection, look at Nick Foles today you can tell a fighter and leader from what you watch on tape.

    Erik, TC, and etc.,

    When the Vikings drafted Ponder, Frazier said he was so excited to have a “franchise Quarterback” to develop.

    And Ponder is Spielman’s boy. To play anyone else would be to risk getting fired.

    Lastly, it can take 5 years to develop a quarterback fully. Not many QBs can step in like RGIII, and Cam Newton, and play well right away.

    Jones thought Joe Webb was our QB since they drafted him. He has a lot to prove, but deserves the opportunity.

    Someone asked me if we had a worse quarterback than Ponder since 1968 when I started watching the Vikings. I said Gary Cuozzo, but there were some I might have forgotten.

    Anyone remember Spergion Wynn? He was the best QB the Vikings could put on the field during Dennis Green’s last 3 games coaching the team. It makes you wonder if Green would have led the Vikings to a Super Bowl win, if not for that idiotic executive decision by the Vikings Br@ss!

    Great win today but I am still very concerned about our lack of a passing game. I like what Jimmy johnson said about AP. After AP’s knee injury and his carrying the team on his back, he will soon have back problems, could his comment be directed at Ponder, don’t know, just saying, have a nice day everyone and enjoy this win for a week.

  274. By vikes- or - die on Dec 9, 2012 | Reply

    The QB is most important Position on the field. But only because he handels the ball the most and because his decision making is important because of that fact. We have 53 players on the team and because of that we won the game. And because of that I am very hope full. That is exactly what we want if we want a championship team.

    Jones & V-or-D,
    As I’m sure y’all agree, it’s frustrating watching him go out there and do a whole lot of nothing, and I understand that QB’s don’t always just develop overnight, but at this point of the season while we are still in the hunt for at least a wild card spot, I want to see what the other QB’s we have can do, especially if Ponder gets into a situation where he isnt contributing to the game

    The other problem (outside of Ponder) is that all of the other teams that are in the playoff hunt all won or are winning today with the exception of the bucs I believe, so even if we won out we’ll probably need a lot of help just to get the last playoff spot.

    @Erik,

    I agree we need to substitute the quarterback. Let him start the next game. But sub for him. It changes the game.

    Seldom have I seen a team this stubborn to keep an underperforming player on the field.

    Sure they don’t sub for Flacco, Brady, Rivers, etc., but those QBs are winning and still having 300 yard games once in a while.

    That is a different situation entirely.

    Jones hasn’t seen so many fans up in arms about the Vikings since the Childress decision.

    Jones wanted Childress to stay, but sooner or later you have to give in to a large majority. But these coaches are stubborn.

    AP just needs to average 133.3 yards a game in the last 3 games to hit 2000 yards.

    Oh wait ???…That’s what happened…

    The only time the Vikings really tried to pass today…Was to keep the run effective…

    It worked…Vikings won…

    Ponder missed one big play late in the first half to Wright…Ponder has got to work on his mechanics !!!…

    AP played GREAT !!!…Did I say Vikings WON !!!!…

    Defense played AWESOME !!!…We won !!!!…

    KLuwe kicked very well…We WON !!!….

    Let Sherels catch ALL kick offs !!!…AJ Jefferson almost lost all of the Vikings momentum fumbling that kick off !!!…

    I take time to disagree and agree with other Vikings fans. I toss out my thoughts on who should go, and why. But I wouldn’t call myself a good fan if I didn’t include some praise….

    Adrian Peterson is special. Very special. I’m so proud of his battle against his injury. He has great character, behaves unselfishly when he carries our team, and shows such amazing talent in the game of pro football. When I watch Adrian play, I feel like I’m watching NFL history. I know I am. This is a difficult time for the Vikings; who knows how we’ll look back on this period in 10 years. But I know we HAVE to look at what ALL DAY does for Minnesota. This guy brought a new level of rushing to MIN; to the NFL. And he did it in an era when pasing took over. Maybe last of a dying breed; maybe best of his breed. He knew he had a chance to go to another franchise before we upped his contract. And he knew he might well decrease his shot at a ring to stay with us. But he stayed. “All Day”, “AP”, “a Beast”, “Best running back in the NFL”, “a Machine”, “he’s not human”; he earned every name! Every yard he ever took. We may be distracted now, but we will see the most respected players, coaches, writers, and broadcasters in NFL history sing Peterson’s praises one day. How can I be unbiased when he’s on our team? But I still believe he’s knocking on the door of being the BEST RUNNING BACK EVER TO PLAY IN THE NFL! His style of play often reminds me of how I should conduct my own style of life. Perseverance, overcome, fight, battle, be humble, think of the bigger picture before yourself, never quit, fight some more, believe, support others when you are the strongest, fight more, believe more, battle, NEVER STOP short of your goal Great Viking, amazing rusher, one of a kind human being! SKOL!

    I truly agree what everyone is saying about AP, the guy deserves MVP, he is the ultimate team player and a heck of a good person. if you look up humility in the dictionary it would be a picture of him, AP gives the term “role model” a new meaning. I remember when he was drafted out of Oklahoma and I was hoping that we were going to draft him because he was something special and I was partially right, he is a phenom, words cannot express how wonderful he is and how special he is as a person and I am so very happy he is a Viking, Go AP break the record!!!, GO Vikings!!!!!!!

    If Ponder is going to learn anything this week, they need to put on full-gear and blitz the snot out of him. Because that’s what he is going to see in the next (3) games for sure. If JC Watts is in for Houston, Ponder will be on his arse all day long,count on it. ALL the sports commentators, who know what they are actually talking about, stated that a team cannot continue to win games when they are one-dimensional. One dimensional as in AP/DEFENSE winning this game. It doesnt take a rocket-scientist to see that as well. We as fans do appreciate our team and their efforts on the whole, BUT, Ponder isnot,willnot ever be able to develop himself into an NFL QB. He has a Masters Degree, very intelligent. BUT, it seems he can’t seem to comprehend how he is going to develop his skill-set that is so sorely needed in order to progress and show improvement. What’ worse is that Frazier apparently is willing to overlook this, or else, someone “higher up” is telling him to keep Ponder in despite the lousy production.
