Ponder still wobbly in opening workouts in Mankato
Day at Camp: Ponder still wobbly in opening workouts in Mankato | StarTribune.com
Christian Ponder remains consistently inconsistent. In Monday’s 11-on-11 competition, he completed four of 12 passes. He also had one drop by rookie free-agent fullback Zach Line. Ponder also had a deep ball to Jerome Simpson come down about four yards out of bounds
Matt Cassel, completed eight of 11 passes during 11-on-11 competition. He also had one drop. Stephen Burton, a receiver on the bubble, was the player of the day. He caught two deep balls, one in fairly tight coverage and the other against a blown coverage.
Well if Ponder is going to crack under the pressure of training camp might as well do it big and early, hopefully the depth chart gets adjusted and the change is made giving Cassel the time to run with the first team. Pretty sure the team won't announce anything soon but I don't think we are in the same place with Frazer as we were with Childress and his stubborn KAO and quarterback guru ego.
