Minnesota Vikings Loss to Green Bay Packers Proves Joe Webb is Far From NFL Worthy
After earning the final spot in the NFC following a 37-34 win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 17, it seemed like the Minnesota Vikings had what it takes to pull off the upset on the road at Lambeau Field during Wild Card Weekend of the 2013 NFL Playoffs. Unfortunately, that was far from the case as the Vikings received bad news just hours before the game regarding Christian Ponder and how he would be inactive for the game with an elbow injury–leaving the team with no choice but to start Joe Webb at quarterback.
Unfortunately for the Vikings, Webb looked completely unprepared for Saturday’s game against the Packers–which should come as no surprise considering he went the entire regular season without throwing a single pass. Webb showed potential as a rookie in 2010 when he started two games and there was a brief period when Minnesota believed he was capable of being the starter before they acquired Donovan McNabb prior to the 2011 season along with drafting Ponder.
If Saturday’s game against Green Bay is any indication, it’s clear Webb is far from NFL worthy and Minnesota needs to strongly consider dumping him during the offseason–especially after the way he performed on Saturday night. Not only did Webb complete just 11 of 30 passes for 180 yards with one touchdown and one interception, but he attempted to make passes against the Packers that even Mark Sanchez wouldn’t even attempt to make.
Sure, the argument can be made the Vikings don’t have the best passing game to begin with, but the Packers don’t have the best defense either–which means Webb’s numbers could have at least been a little better.

Three questions the New Orleans Saints need to answer heading into preseason
If anybody knows what happened to the Saints last year, can you please give me a call? Because I’m still grasping for answers. I mean, there’s no reason why the Saints should have been as bad as they were last year, even if everything went wrong -- which it pretty much did. Before the season started, the general consensus was that New Orleans could very well be competing for a Super Bowl birth. Instead, their defense imploded before our eyes, and they finished 7-9. And it’s not like this offseason has been full of answers, either. Here are the three biggest questions the Saints have heading into the preseason: Read More
