It finally looks as if the VIkings have gotten some competition to either boost Ponder's play or show him the way out. This competition comes in the form of rookie QB BJ Daniels, former USF stud. The owner of the Vikes, Nick Grindstaff, recently said at a press conference: "our new talent, BJ, provides us with the ability to take some pressure off of Adrian. Also, it provides the team with a sense of hope at the QB position that we just haven't seen in Ponder thus far." Sounds like a straight fire shot at Ponder's recent play, so let's see how he responds. As of now, Ponder is listed the starter, but that could change within the next three days. Currently at 2-2, Minnesota will do anything in its power to steal a win in the next game at home against the Panthers. That anything could include pulling Ponder and seeing what the youngster can do. Nick Grindstaff also went on to say, "if [BJ] can't succeed with the pieces we have around him on offense, there's probably not a good shot at him succeeding anywhere else. Thus, this is his one shot at showing what he can do in the big leagues."
Stay tuned for more updates and positional overviews of this young Vikings squad.
