Vikings | Becoming one-dimensional

The Minnesota Vikings have become a very one-dimensional team lately, and opponents are choking off WR Percy Harvin and TE Kyle Rudolph. QB Christian Ponder is waiting for routes to open up down the field and it's not happening. Once the Vikings fall behind, they are forced to abandon their running game and their best weapon, RB Adrian Peterson. "Outside of Percy, I don't consider any of those guys really threats. Obviously, I really like Rudolph, but he's not a stretch-you-down-the-field type of guy. I'm not a huge Jerome Simpson fan. I thought as long as we could get them to throw, we'll be all right," said a scout. As a result, Ponder has seemed more hesitant to take chances down the field.
