The Vikings only need a "game manager" to run the offense, when you have a beast like Adrian Peterson. If Ponder has two or three bad games early it will be interesting to see how the locker room reacts. The Vikings did their part, getting him more weapons. This is going to be a make or break year. I think he will do fine. He is talented and smart. He reminds me of Eli Manning who had three terrible years then put it together.
