It's not the durability of this kid that worries me, it's the lack of accuracy, touch and arm strength that worries the heck out of me!
And no, I don't want RGIII, that would be yet another mistake from our FO.

Here's a question (string of em)....Does Sanchez have IT? Does Ryan have IT?, Does Flacco have IT? Does Bradford have IT? Does Stafford have it? How about Tebow? He has IT, but what will it do for the team?
Truth of the matter is, all of those QB's flashed and have steadily declined or atleast peaked after many more games than young Ponder.
Give him a few years and quit looking for the "Instant success" you are looking for because no matter what, it takes time to find out if he has "IT". Just ask the Giants fans who were still willing to give up on Eli going into his 5th year.
On a side note, sure he has limitations on his arm strength, but the bigger question is, .....Why ohhhhh why did the staff that drafted him not develop a offensive scheme that best suites the QB they drafted?
Go back in time. Look at the style of WCO coach Walsh ran pre-Montanna. He basically changed it to the style that a kid like Ponder can be successful in. Same applies for when Young took over. Another variant was born. If Musgrove is what everyone on here thought he was going to be (except me of course) then why is he making the kid make throws to tightly covered receivers (alot) when the kid can't make that throw?
I think he has it. If I'm not mistaken he was the highest rated QB on 3rd down passing conversions and alot of them were long distance situations. That is one stat that shows to me that he has IT. Get the kid 2 more receivers and I think you will agree unless your like Caine and will refuse to see the QB talent........snicker.......Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

As I told our good friend Kev. Get him a couple of WR's like Vjax and Blackmon and we won't be having this discussion.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Ponder will be fine. We just need to have faith, patience and a O-coord who isn't a lunatic running the show.
Bunched sets. Gimme a break.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Comeon my friend. You have to give the kid some time and that time has to include having put some weapons around him.
You just can't keep plugging in a QB each and every year in the hopes that one of them will be an instant wonder. It just doesn't happen that way.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Completely agree Marr. Give the kid we have some WRs and a decent OL...and, let's see what he's got.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent
As a matter of fact, I do know
