Q: Adam, how would rate Christian Ponder's first start? I thought he looked pretty good, especially against the Green Bay Packers' defense.

-- Doug (Minn.)

A: I agree, Doug. I thought he provided a spark for the Minnesota Vikings, even though his numbers weren't overly impressive and he threw those two costly interceptions to Charles Woodson. But there were times when Ponder made some good decisions. He helped keep the game close. Overall, it just seemed like the Vikings' offense had more energy to it and more options. It was a good first start for Ponder in most every way -- except for the final result.

Q: The Baltimore Ravens are a very quiet 4-1 and their defense has been phenomenal. What do you see as this team's weaknesses?
