The Minnesota Vikings parted ways with head coach Leslie Frazier after a sub par season. One which saw the Vikings start multiple players at quarterback. Frazier was loyal to Christian Ponder and giving him a chance to succeed despite Matt Cassel being the better option.
“It was definitely an interesting year,” Ponder said Monday, via The Star Tribune. “And not the way that I thought it would play out or probably anyone wanted it to play out. So with my job, I didn’t play well enough to keep the job and for us to win as many games as we should have. So it stinks knowing that was a contribution to what happened.”
“I think he tried to keep giving me a chance and so that was big,” Ponder said. “He gave me a chance just to come here and just be the starter. So I’ll appreciate that. That’s a relationship I’d like to have for the rest of my life. He’s a great guy and gave me that opportunity and it just stinks that it didn’t work out.”
