All I can say is this better not be Jason Garrett II. Or was that Gary Hogeboom?



I'd take Webb over Ponder any day. Dude can run. CONTAIN, CONTAIN, CONTAIN. Both AP and Webb.

I bet Vikerule's bet caused Ponder's bursitis. Think


Yes, this could make things very interesting indeed.

Packers have prepared for Ponder all week and Webb has done pretty good when the opponents aren't ready for him.

Joe Webb running bootlegs with Adrian Peterson in the backfield could be a nightmare for the Packers D. ThumpUp

That's huge news. I bet the Packers defense is cramming to put a game plan together for him, heh. Although I'm sure they had a partial plan for him anyway, but still. I really don't see any way the Vikings can stay in this game now, but who knows.

I've always liked Webb. He's better than Ponder any day.

Great scrambler too.

It may be my imagination, but it seems like historically the Packers have had a knack for making no name backups look like stars.

About Vikings QB Joe Webb...

The Packers probably weren't preparing for Joe Webb. And he's much, much different than the guy in front of him.

Webb has been a fan favorite at times in his three years with the Vikings. A versatile quarterback from the get-go, he's been used everywhere from quarterback to receiver to kick returner.

*In his first career start, Webb led the Vikings to a 24-14 upset win over Philadelphia in 2010.
That game he threw for 195 yards on 17-of-26 passing with no interceptions and one rushing touchdown.
*Replacing a struggling Ponder in a 2011 game at Detroit, Webb rushed for 109 yards on seven carries and was 12 of 23 for 84 yards with two total touchdowns.
The 109 yards set a single-game franchise record for rushing yards by a QB.
*He also led the Vikings to one of their three wins last season, shining in place of a concussed Ponder at Washington.
With three scores -- two passing, one rushing --- he finished with a perfect 158.3 passer rating in the win.

Talked to Webb for a story on the Vikings' turnaround last week. Don't think I've met someone with bigger hands than him.
*As a rookie, Webb became the first quarterback in Vikings history to return a kickoff.

It seems to me the Vikings had a pretty difficult time stopping quarterback last week. Why has there been no attention in that area. The Packes knew about Ponders injury early in the week, if they didn't prepare for Webb then I guess we'll have to hire some new coaches.

VR, do you think a guy that hasn't thrown a pass all year might be a little rusty, and have some butterflies?

This is the National Football League. Everyone should be good. Doesn't surprise me one bit when players step up to the plate and play well.

Actually DT, that is a good point.

My gut feeling is that Webb this week, with what is on the line, it will go one of two ways with no middle ground
A. Incredibly well
B. Major suckage

We need to hit this guy early,HARD,and often.But I think we get a heavy dose of A.P. in the early portion of the game.They will try to get Webb in his comfort zone so they will only pass when needed.
