To elaborate on an earlier comment I made about Ponder:

If you swapped Ponder for Rodgers, this would be a borderline playoff team. A truly elite, in his prime QB paired with AP in the backfield could overcome the WR on the field. But, on the other hand, if you replaced our receiver corps with a team like Green Bay's, Ponder would be adequate to get this team to the playoffs as well. If you swapped Ponder for a middling QB (like a Flacco, Palmer, or Dalton) you'd end up with more or less the same results as we have.

The Vikings passing offense has zero playmakers when Harvin is out. Ponder's not good enough to overcome his receivers, and his receivers aren't good enough to offer him support.
