Thread: McLeod Bethel Thompson = Ponder
Like I said, the fans shouldn't dictate what happens but that is the way it goes some times.

If our team was a high flying run and gun team similar in makeup to '98, then maybe. It does remind me a bit of the Brad Johnson being sat for Randall Cunningham.
If Cordarrele ever turns into a bonafide deep threat one on one, perhaps. But MBT is sure as shit less accurate than Ponder. Which should tell us something about MBT. Lets face it though, if Ponder bombs this year we'll be headed back to the draft for a QB again. On which case MBT would be irrelevant again in all likelihood.
It's Ponder or bust this year guys. We aren't winning more than 6-7 games with anyone else at QB on our roster.

I can't wait to watch the five yard pass on 3rd and 15. Go Ponder!
It made me happy to see us keep MBT. Personally I don't care who is tossing the rock as long as they throw for a first down on 3rd down.

I may be the only guy left who believes this will be the year Christian steps up and shows he is a quality NFL QB. That said, if it doesn't happen, what about trading for Cousins? I can't see Washington hanging onto two starting caliber QB's for another year. They will get a nice pick for him. Just thinking out loud.Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

If it wasn't for Percy Harvin and the bubble screens last year, Ponders numbers would have been obscenely worse which were wretched to begin with.
Our quarterback has the same number of yards as our running back. Do you realize the grotesque nature of that statistic? It's never been worse in the history of the league. That speaks for itself.
Am I saying McLeod is a better overall quarterback than Ponder right now? Not necessarily, but he can't be any worse.

Which Passers Were Most Effective on Third Down in 2012?
The one area that Ponder had decent results was in 3rd down conversions and red zone efficiency. This is what Frazier has stated that he is looking for in his QB. He wants to run the offense through AD and when they need the QB to make a play, they expect him to make it.
