Christian Ponder Was Dating Samantha Steele When the Vikings Were Good, So You Can't Blame Her Now That They Stink

The Minnesota Vikings started the season 4-1 by winning 3 games at home. Since then, they have dropped 3 of their last 4  and are just a half-game ahead of last place Detroit. Two of those three losses came after it was revealed that Ponder was dating ESPN’s Samantha Steele. So it is only natural that someone would ask Ponder if fans could maybe blame the relationship on the Vikings struggles. Paul Allen of KFAN in Minneapolis was that guy and Ponder responded like a reasonable person. Via Sports Radio Interviews:

“She has nothing to do with it. We’ve been dating since the beginning of the season, so she had also to do with the five wins. So it has really nothing to do with anything on the football field.”

Whatever dude. We all know Samantha Steele is single-handedly derailing a potential Vikings Super Bowl season. Just like Gisele did to the Patriots all those years ago.
