Ponder is our game manager until he proves otherwise here's my proof.I keep reading "game manager" on Ponder.
Couldn't disagree more on that term.
According to the experts (Jaworski for one)he has the skill set,can make all the throws.The only thing I see missing from his game is the big play.With Jennings and Patterson,that may very well change.Throwing a little more to Petterson wouldn't hurt either.
The OC in Minn factors in to some degree,but with a young Qb and the receivers of yesterday,it's hard to predict moving forward on what the OC is worth to us.
In pulling up the 2012 NFL Qb stats,two things were noticeable on Ponder (in the negative)everything else looked good.The two things were total yds and avg per pass.From the OC and his play calling,to the receivers of last season vs this season,this is the area Ponder needs growth,and it looks promising IMO.
I also noticed he had around the 3rd fewest attempts.483
Amazingly RG3 and Wilson only attempted in the 375 pass attempts range on the whole season.Srange.
Jennings and Patterson should create break away potential,which directly effects Ponders stats.
Could be a kick ass offense and I hope it is,
but Ponder is much more than a manager.
Crossroads in brief: Ponder was one of the NFL's worst quarterbacks during an eight-game stretch in 2012
Until Ponder doesn't play half the season like the worst NFL QB, he's not a game manager he's a COACH and GENERAL MANAGER KILLER.
