09:14 AM ET 09.08 | Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright said QB Christian Ponder's decision-making has gotten better over the past year. "He's grown as a player just like the rest of us are trying to grow as players," Wright said. It's definitely a make-or-break season for Vikings QB Christian Ponder. If he doesn't produce, it's highly unlikely he'll be brought back next season. Jay Cutler is in his final contract year as Chicago Bears quarterback, and the San Diego Chargers might be willing to move on from QB Philip Rivers.

We'll probably know after today but the Christians typically didn't do well against the Lions.

Not a good sign when your QB is being critiqued by Jarius Wright, a receiver with all of 22 career receptions in his seven career starts.

I think he'd fair better with that name if he was a female **** star, with a twist on the spelling of the last name.

Sure as heck not making a case for himself so far today in the first half.

He's staring down receivers big time.

I think he's gone regardless.

Ponder looked really good today handing the ball of to AP.

3 INT's and a fumble. He's his own worst enemy.
