Minneapolis, MN – Exciting and unusual news coming out of the Minnesota Vikings camp this morning. The word on the street is that Christian Ponder will give up his quarterback position to play Kicker.
Leslie Frazier confirmed the news just this morning.
“We feel Christian Ponder is a great quarterback but an even greater kicker. That is why, as of this morning, Christian Ponder will be our full-time kicker,” Frazier stated.
I asked how this position and Ponder came about in which he replied, “After seeing him kick the ball around out of frustration during training camp, I knew he’d make a great kicker.”
Joe Webb from quarterback to wide receiver. Christian Ponder from quarterback to kicker. The Vikings sure have a unique drafting strategy.
Oh yea, did anyone tell Leslie Frazier his new helmets don’t match the rest of the uniform? Who’s smoking what in Minneapolis?
At least Mr. Ponder will have a better chance of scoring as a kicker then as a quarterback.
