When a NFL quarterback begins to struggle, people quickly begin to search for reasons why. And of course during that search, people come up with the most asinine reasons to hang their hats on.

Case in point: Vikings fans pointing to Christian Ponder dating ESPN’s Samantha Steele as a reason for the Ponder’s recent struggle. Why? Because remember Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson? Tony struggled when he was dating her, so Ponder has to be struggling because he’s Steele.

So just quiet the crowd, Paul Allen on KFAN in Minneapolis asked Ponder point black to, “tell everybody why having a hot girlfriend doesn’t in no way plays into your performances on the field.” And Ponder did just that.

“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.”

Now let’s quiet this down, Vikings fans.
