I mean I tried to get some sort of football discussion going on a page back but somethings are more important I guess.
I'll ask again then how does Ponder sitting (rib injury) and Cassell starting affecting the Vikings this weekend?
I really don't entirely blame Ponder as much as most Vikings fans, the offense has been okay, (currently 7th overall), just very predictable and stagnant at the worst possible moments. Ponder's main 2 problems have been turnovers and arm strength. I'll be happy if Cassell takes more of a cavalier approach and showcases more of a deep ball. This team needs that downfield threat, Patterson and Simpson are more than capable of providing that now. Jennings can settle in that possession role, and Rudolph can move the chains and catch those red zone tosses.
I think AP having his starting FB back from suspension for this week will help him immensely, as a lead blocker and for pass protection. Jerome Felton was a Pro-Bowler last year and his presence was missed.
On the way out of the stadium I got to shake John Elways hand and tell him he put together the best NFL team I have ever seen. I hate the fucking guy and under any other circumstance I would have spit on him, but I was in an awesome mood.
Also Pam Oliver is a bitch and deserves every football that flies at her face.
This Atlanta - New England game is fucking insane.
EDIT* No pass interference call, eh? I guess it was a "bang-bang" kind of play.

Close shave for the Pats.
They go to 4-0 despite no Gronk, no Amendola,no Wilfork for 3 quarters, having to deal with the 12th man crowd and overcoming the 13th man officiating.
Some of those calls were head-shakers/spit-takers.
Fuck it. Next stop, Cincy.
On a side note: I had no idea that Tom Brady was drafted by the Montreal Expos in 1995.
What I love about the AFC West this year (yes, I'm a Chargers fan) is that we are 7-1 vs. the NFC East. I have too many friends that are fans of that division that used to talk smack about how tough their division is.
Well, this blows....
Report: Vince Wilfork tears Achilles

ATLANTA -- New England Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork has a torn right Achilles tendon and almost certainly is out for the season, the Boston Globe reported.
Vince Wilfork, a key cog for the Patriots, tore his right Achilles in Sunday's win, according to a report.
Wilfork left Sunday night's 30-23 win against the Atlanta Falcons with an ankle injury in the first quarter, limping off the field on the Falcons' first drive of the game and did not return.
He was later taken to the locker room on the back of a cart.
Patriots coach Bill Belichick was seen speaking with Wilfork's wife, Bianca, outside of the team's locker room after the game.
Wilfork, one of the team's captains, is a perennial Pro Bowler and vital cog to the team's defense, particularly against the run. He had been added to the team's injury report this week for the first time, as probable with a foot injury.
Aaaand the Texans are still not ready for primetime.
