Minnesota Viking quarterbacks coach Craig Johnson does not agree with fans wanting a quarterback change, but he feels QB Christian Ponder should "suck it up" when the team does not have success. "I don't feel any different now than I did before," Johnson said.
"The bottom line is — and he knows this — if you do not win the game, you're getting the blame. That's just the way it is. Suck it up. You're no different than quarterbacks in every other part of the country. When you lose, you're getting the blame. That's part of the deal."

The Tennessean reports Tennessee Titans QB Steve McNair will wear a wristband to help translate numbered instructions from offensive coordinator Norm Chow and quarterbacks coach Craig Johnson into a play call. Chow will radio plays from the press box coaching booth to Johnson on the sideline, who will then radio them to McNair. Johnson spent part of practice Wednesday, June 15, testing out the system by calling plays off a script into a walkie-talkie. "We've all got to be on the same page from top to bottom," said McNair. "When you're pulling against each other, that's when it gets confusing. Me, Craig and Norm have done well together so far and I don't think we'll have any problem relaying it from one guy to the next in plenty of time."
