Is Ponder set up for instant success?

There are 77 comments on the ESPN story from Jul 6, 2011, titled Is Ponder set up for instant success?. In it, ESPN reports that:

Does Christian Ponder have the kind of team around him to succeed the way Mark Sanchez did with the Jets in his rookie year? That was the question proposed to me.

STOP IT. Comparing a weak defensive team like the Queens to the JETS? Get real! The only instant success Ponder willl see is the first preseason game with vanilla defensive schemes and no blitzing, then, like I said before he better be wearing camoflauge because he'll be hit more often than Rocky

Said it before, with the 3rd best player in football Adrian Peterson, Ponder should have a similar season to daunte Culpeper in 2000 when he had Robert Smith.

I aim high. Air Force thinking.

This coming from the guy that got "kicked out" of the Air Force.

How is Culpepper Ave. coming along?

Bawahahahaha.

Yeah but, as long as he doesn't sit on the sideline and pout instead of supporting his team....we'll take him.

Hey Mags, how's the band coming along? I spend a lot of time jamming now that there's nothing to keep an eye on here.

Everyday is a big jerk-off..."deal's coming...no, it's not yet"...blah, blah...wake me when it's over.

Maybe close now though as losing some change will be a reality soon if it doesn't happen. First day is going to be fun trying to keep track of things.

My overtime is done now for awhile so I'm sitting here just strumming some old Buddy Holly tunes. I'm in an oldies mood. Hope all's good with ya' and hope we can talk some real football soon.

Air Force Thinking?
Please don't ever disgrace the Air Force again by associating your mental breakdowns with their style of thinking. Perhaps you meant the Bermuda Air Force, then yes you probably have “Air Force thinking”.
Culpepper was successful because of the RB?
Why did you leave out the WRs like Moss and Carter (future HOFers) or the Oline, or maybe he wasn't a rookie in 2000 and they were not installing a new offence, or the fact you are a monkey?
1. You backed Culpepper and wanted to name a street after him
2. You give 110% man love for TJax (we all know you still love him too)
3. You don't know your ass from your elbows when it comes to anything
4. You already have chosen a new QB for 2012, because you think Ponder will suck.
All the above probably tells me Ponder will probably have a good career.

Cant believe the jump balls to Moss was NOT a factor in this Avant and you went with Robert Smith being the key factor. Not to take away any thing from R Smith.

Culpepper Ave....that was funny.

Doesn't that now intersect with T Jackson Farm Road

Band is coming off a hiatus. We took about 3 months off. Played out last Saturday night. It was good (except mosquitoes).
Yes it fun to slam Pixie boy, but it gets old fast. I'm hoping for something by next week on the lockout. We'll see.

Bravo.Well said except for that omission of the NFC championship game.Dickhead in Vegas never understands anything,so he'll skip your comments rather than make an argument.

yahoo fantasy football has Newton ranked as 212 best player,Ponder something like 2050.
Must be including training camp fill in to be that low.Anywho,
I expect a vet to start and Ponder to take over when ready.

We need football to start so everybody can stop guessing.

I know one thing having the 3rd best player in football to hand the ball off to if I were Ponder I want to start.

Vikings also need to sign Rice but I think he wants a more stable QB position to put up big numbers.
