At this point, unless they make a huge addition in the offseason market, Ponder isn't going to find a legitimate target anytime soon. Most all rookie receivers just don't make that sort of impact. So I believe they should bring in a FA/trade receiver that is at least capable and then add a mid round pick to the mix.

What you are then doing is making the offensive line and defense in general markedly more improved. Now you've got the line which would be more or less set to make sure the team's best player has all the help he can get in giving him running lanes. The defense is also improved to help get the ball back into the offense's hands in an attempt to keep the score down and manageable for a Ponder-lead offense.

In short, I think building around the best player on the team and improving the defense is going to help Ponder much more than adding any receiver the team could legitimately get. That's my take.

Greg Jennings and Dwayne Bowe are all but out the doors of the Packers and Chiefs, respectively. Some folks seem pretty convinced that the Vikings will spend their money on one of them. They apparently can afford either one.

It strikes me that Jennings would be more realistic (and affordable). That would be potentially great.

Plus, Packers fans think we're signing their former players. So why not another one?

Not professional, but YOUR #21 Minnesota Gophers are playing the Florida State Seminoles right now. They are up 38-25 at the half. On ESPN2.

Up 20 on the Seminoles. This defense is insufferable.

The Gophers were REALLY good tonight, they had scoring coming from everywhere and solid team defense. The game was not as close as the final score.

Anyone know how it is possible to get a blocking foul and a charge in the same play? That left me a little dumbfounded

Unstoppable force meets immovable object.

And no, the game wasn't too close. Surprised Mbakwe didn't show up too much. He played a decent amount of minutes. Not a lot since he is still recovering, but wow. He did not look good.

Nice to see the Wolves get a win last night. Watched the first half then went to bed. They started out slow and the Kings were knocking down 3's but the Wolves picked it up and grabbed the lead. They've lost so many leads in the last few games but finally held on to one.
