I think Spielman would have passed on RGIII and traded the pick away if we would have picked second last year.
Who knows. It is what it is, and we are Stuck with Ponder, for better or worse.

But it's not just Ponder, you've got to put some blame on the talent level of our WRs...specially without Harvin! Here's a quote from Frazier on our passing game's improvement:
BS: Your receivers are playing better. Are they better because Ponder has gotten better?
LF: It's a combination. Some of those throws that Christian made hit guys right in stride. He was getting the ball out on time. And our receivers were running better routes. They were getting open. There was some space between our receivers and their defensive backs, so that has to help, too.
Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

Ponder has had a lot of bad showings this year, but he has shown some mettle in the last few games when it counted. This is something to build on and can be invaluable in post season play. I'm still doubtful on this guy, but I will give him credit for the last few weeks and see how he shows up this week.

With Ponder it seem to be all about completion percentage. Above 60% the team is 9-4, below 60% 11-3. Now it does not matter if its Ponder making or not making the throws or the WR's catching or not catching. I have seen some nice throws get dropped and some wide open WR's not even have the ball close to them. So blame who you wish. I don't think he is going anywhere and I don't think they will think about replacing him. So like him or not, he's going to be the starter next year.
