It’s never boring with the Vikings. Even the totally meaningless last game of the regular season has had intrigue and excitement. Unfortunately, some of that excitement came at the expense of Christian Ponder who suffered an aggravation of his injured hip after being hit hard. Enter Joe Webb who did what Joe Webb does…namely, create electricity. Webb came out on fire, completing his first six passes. The Vikings didn’t produce much in the way of points with Webb out there, but Webb did add more fuel to the fires of quarterback controversy with his dazzling playmaking. It will be an interesting off-season of debate between the Ponder camp and the Webb faction. I remain on the fence. I love watching Webb operate but my concern is that he’ll never be a good enough true passer to lead a team on a championship run. In the end it’s not about crazy plays, it’s about winning.
Oh I almost forgot about the other big storyline: Jared Allen has 1.5 sacks on the game, leaving him 2 behind Michael Strahan for the all-time record. There’s something to root for in the second half.
