If 78.8 is marginally better than 67.9 does that make Newton's 88.0 and Dalton's 87.0 marginally better than Ponders with Kaepernick's 95.9 about the same as Newton's, not so sure about that. I'd say Ponder and Gabbert (77.2) are the same and Locker's 72.9 being marginally less and thats the draft class of 2011 starters excluding Greg McElroy one start 79.2.....also about the same as Ponder which is better than Sanchez's and could be a problem for Mark.Quote:
And thatís with Ponder, a second-year pro and the No. 12 overall pick in the 2011 draft, posting the worst quarterback rating in the N.F.C. at 78.8, marginally better than that of Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez (67.9).
I wonder what the Colts are going to do with Luck since he got a 75.6 rating and he was the first pick of the draft this year
Now I wouldn't say Ponder gets a pass at being the starter next year without some sort of real competition on the roster but judging from the message coming from Fraiser and Spielman it is year 2 of a 3 year plan which I believe means they are sticking with him and I do think its going to be a problem. Even if he pulls off some big numbers against GB (not holding my breath) he has been shaky enough to start investing in a plan B.
