Christian Ponder, the Minnesota quarterback sat out the playoff game against Green Bay. Of course, Joe Webb started after not having thrown a single pass this past season and was dismal in Green Bay’s 24-10 victory last night.
Here’s the thing I’m asking this morning: If this was Jay Cutler, would the guy be getting a pass? No one’s talking about a guy getting scratched 90 minutes before a game when obviously he had to have been having problems all week. Are the Vikings and their coaching staff that naive to suggest the guy was good to go?
For that matter, is he getting a pass in the media because his wife happens to work for ESPN? All we hear about with the Vikings is superstar Adrian Peterson. Ponder’s performance this season was terrible, and that’s being nice.
