Leslie Frazier is sticking with Donovan McNabb as his starting quarterback. His decision goes against what many fans and members of the media want - a change to Christian Ponder or Joe Webb.

Michael Rand of the Star Tribune believes the timing couldn't be better to make a change at quarterback. The Vikings are 0-4 and coming home to face the Arizona Cardinals.

Another reason to start Christian Ponder over McNabb is that Minnesota is in dire need of a spark. Ponder might be the only player on the team capable of producing a spark within an excitement-thirsty fan base.

However, it could be risky putting Ponder on the field with an ineffective offensive line and a group of wide receivers that haven't made many plays this season. If Frazier is thinking along those lines he might be better off starting Joe Webb.

Either way a change at quarterback seems imminent. Former head coach Brad Childress believes Frazier's hand will be forced and he'll eventually replace McNabb with Ponder.
