    Apparently the Vikings have not been overwhelmed with trade offers for former first-rounder Christian Ponder. So now they’re talking him up, and trying to salvage his value to their organization.

    Former Minnesota Vikings center Mick Tingelhoff has been nominated as the senior finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame's 2015 class of inductees. Tingelhoff will join 15 modern-era finalists and two contributor finalists on the ballot, but the endorsement from the Hall of Fame's senior committee was a big step toward enshrinement for the six-time Pro Bowl pick. Tingelhoff went undrafted out of Nebraska in 1962, yet became a starter as a rookie and kept the job his whole career until retiring after the 1978 season.

    Green Bay's grab of the NFC North for the third straight season, giving the Packers seven of the 12 titles since the division formed, was predictable. Detroit was the only team with more victories than the previous year, but still had a losing mark and fired its coach. From stars Aaron Rodgers, Adrian Peterson and Calvin Johnson to up-and-comers Cordarrelle Patterson, Alshon Jeffrey and Eddie Lacy, with standouts like Reggie Bush, Brandon Marshall and Randall Cobb somewhere in between, the NFC North could probably field a Pro Bowl offense all by itself.

He's probably a reasonably good backup. He is 8-of-20 for 108 yards this preseason. He had 16 passing yards and led one first down in four drives on Monday night against Washington. He's just not an average or better starting quarterback (and please, please stop with the "he was 3-0 last season!" stuff; quarterback wins is the stinkiest of all garbage stats and he completed two passes before getting hurt in…
