Gannon did turn out to be pretty good at the end, for the Chiefs and Raiders, but it took him quite a few years to get to that point.
Ponder is a bit more athletic, but they seem to have the same kind of awareness and smarts.
Back in the days when Gannon was a Vikings backup, there was a clause in the contract saying the Vikings had to pay significantly more if he played one single regular season play.
So he sat on the bench longer than he should have.
