  • Dude hasn't thrown a pass all year. Starts against the Packers, on the road, in the playoffs. Wow! They're screwed.

Joe Web Starting for Vikings
Sat Jan 05, 2013 3:30 pm
  • Well since they didn't have a really good chance against Green Bay, this might turn out to be a good thing. Though he hasn't thrown a pass all season in a game.

  • Hey, didn't say he didn't have the possibility to be good, just that he was starting his very first game this year - in the playoffs at Green Bay. That's a recipe for disaster, no matter who you are.

  • Could be interesting. he and Peterson running the read option coudl be deadly if they've practiced it at all. Could give the Packers some things they havnt seen all season long. Thats the optimistic viewpoint.

  • Good news for the Vikings, and for us. Ponder's arm wasn't going to win this game anyway. At least Webb provides something that the defense has to account for.

  • Considering the Vikings game plan was: Give it to Peterson, this just means they have a faster guy to do so.

  • Hmmm, So joe web is actually well respected/liked by the team. Ponders "elbow" is "injured" and in comes the "read option" qb. I've heard this story before.

  • Webb I thought should have been the Starter, guy has a magic about him seemed to throw the ball well also. That and they can't possible be ready for him in Green Bay.

    He did very well for the Vikings in Favre's absence 2 years ago.

    Agreed. Webb has more of that "it" factor. He also has a much stronger arm than Ponder. He's not exceptionally accurate, but neither is Ponder beyond 10 yards.

  • Well this makes the game much more interesting. Checked a couple of Pack forums, they are complaining about the injury reports during the week. It would be cool if there was a link to all of the playoff teams main sites...

    Ponder was on the field throwing before the game. I don't think the Vikings planned this.

  • As the resident Noles fan on the board, I will say that Bowden was smart enough to sit Ponder for our bowl games and EJ Manuel got us wins. Ponder was always throwing interceptions anytime we played ranked opponents so EJ taking over for our bowl games was, let's just say, well received for the most part. I still laugh about Ponder getting drafted in the first round.

    I have enjoyed seeing Webb play in his limited opportunities. He should play pretty well.

    Yea, he's a whole 50-gallon drum of suckitude this game. Sure, some of it is rust and inaction, but dayum! Every single throw is high, and hangs his receivers out to dry. And he's made some horrible decisions, like that little chuck straight up in the air to avoid the sack.

  • Webb still should've been starting all year, IMO. He seems like a guy who has a knack for not taking big hits, so, go zone-read 80% spread 20% of the time. Why the hell not?

    It would work fine with a freak of nature like Adrian Peterson.

  • I know the Vikings losing ruins any chance of a home game for the Hawks, but I think Atlanta is primed for an early out next week so I'm looking forward to the Hawks sending them on that early out.
