    How bad will the slaughter be tomorrow?

    I may be pleasantly surprised, but I'm guessing that might be many a four-lettered word uttered.

    I think, sadly, they have a shot with the Bears defensive issues.

    Unless the Bears go +2 or better in the turnover battle, the Vikings win this one. I'm saying 20-17 Minnesota.

    Unfortunately they may win. At this point, knowing they have no shot at the postseason (or more importantly doing anything in the postseason) all wins now will do is hurt their draft position and help Frazier and Musgrave keep their jobs. I have zero confidence in these two and very little in Ponder.

    I too think they could win. I do think it could get ugly, fast. But I do think it will be close, and they could win.
    Lighten up Francis....

    I'm done hearing about the offensive line being a problem. They ahve to get better at blitz pickup, but they are opening massive holes for Peterson and have been all year. They aren't a problem, if you've blamed them or still do....watch the games closer. This group is playing well enough to be called "good" at this point.

    This has all the makings of a "Wow, we're up 14-0!" game which transitions into a "Wait, it's late in the 4th, we're down by 10, have they really not scored since 7 minutes in?" game.

    That's a TD to Wright if Ponder didn't have a noodle arm. Jesus.

    They need a mortar shot sound effect to play whenever Ponder throws over 10 yards.

    I am biting my nails over this game. If the Vikes win, they have at least a chance of making the playoffs

    Wow, I come back in after clearing snow only to find a win was pulled out. Then I look out the window as I type this to find it snowing again. Irony.

    @stl @hou(who will maybe Ben benching everyone) very well could come down to the last week of the season against GB.

    Ponder sucks though, Christ.

    How many games is this now that we have won despite his awful performances? 3?

    Pretty close. Gotta have a few bad performances in a row over the next three weeks from Dallas, Washington, and Chicago to get in, as all three are in front of us in the standings. Extremely possible with Chicago with the kind of turd they are laying the second half of the season. With the injury to RG3, the Redskins are seemingly vulnerable at least next week. I don't know who Dallas is facing over the next three weeks, but let's hope these three teams lose out and the Vikes can win at least two out of three.

    Ponder is to the Vikings what Johnny Flynn was to the T-Wolves. Collective WTF?! reaction from fans after they were drafted as a high as they were. Likeable guys, showed some early promise, but just aren't big league material. Except that the Vikes didn't draft a quarterback equivalent to Ricky Rubio when they drafted Ponder. (How's that for a Vikes/Wolves analogy on a Twins site.)

    I've tried to be patient with Ponder, but he's at the point where things should be starting to click, and he's regressing.

    The Twins should only be this good.

    Maybe if the Vikings had a receiver that could catch the ball on third down last week, catch a pass in the end zone on an untipped ball that hits off the receivers shoulder pads. Yes Ponder makes mistakes, but he is not even two years in and showed in the beginning of the year that he can make plays. All thus bitching about him sounds like I am back out in Madison when Rodgers was taking over for Favre.

    Ponder's 2 biggest issues:
    1) lack of confidence
    2) he's gun shy as hell. He won't stand in there, take some heat and try and make a throw. If he feels like there is a guy with 5 feet of him he is cowering and breaking out of the pocket.
