Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder joined the show to talk about his season and more.

Dan asked Ponder about the story out there that he was struggling because he was dating ESPN’s Samantha Steele.”For some reason in their head that was the correct justification,” Ponder said.

Dan asked how he would describe Adrian Peterson’s health. “I would say he is a freak of nature,” Ponder said. “If he’s not the MVP or comeback player of the year, I don’t know who else would be.”

Dan asked which was more likely to happen — Vikings in the playoffs for Florida State in a BCS bowl. Ponder said he is hopeful both will happen.
