    Last team to have three first round picks was...

    The 2001 Superbowl winning St. Louis Rams.

    SKOL.

    Now if only we had a Kurt Warner type QB who could pass for 4,800 yards & throw 36 TD's.

    Not from what we have seen.

    Ponder had the shortest passing game in the NFL last season and second worst YPA. At 6.08 YPA, it would take 790 attempts. That is 63 more than the NFL high last season.

    With another year of having the OL together, a full off season with AP on the practice field and not rehabbing and two vastly improved WRs he is going to look a lot different this year.

    And with the improvements we made so far to the defense he is going to have better field position to work with and more chances to score.

    Or ran an offense that required the QB to throw for 4,800 yards and 36 TD's. Instead we have a running offense that requires AD get it all with a bit of help from the passing game..

    Minus Ponder's runs, didn't we pass the ball 483 times & run it 426?
