The Minnesota Vikings have reached the first game week practices and the coaching staff has young and inexperienced players to get ready. As preparations begin for that game, several things stand out about the week of practice.
Christian Ponder is the man in charge of the Vikings offense. He is being groomed as the team’s leader as well. And right behind Ponder on the depth chart is Joe Webb, an interesting prospect since he came into the league.

You hear the names, Donovan McNabb and Christian Ponder, but let’s not forget the Vikings quarterback that finished last season, Joe Webb.
