Ponder Consistently InconsistentIn today's 11-on-11 competition, Ponder completed 4 of 12 passes. He was "sacked" twice, had one pass batted down at the line of scrimmage and threw another ball away because of pressure. He also had one drop by rookie free agent fullback Zach Line, who was subbing for Jerome Felton, who missed part of practice to attend to a personal matter, according to coach Leslie Frazier.
Ponder also had a deep ball to Jerome Simpson come down about four yards out of bounds. Three of Ponder's completions went to Jarius Wright, including two that were decent throws for touchdowns in red-zone situations.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think that report is a few days old... unless Ponder is going 4 of 12 frequently. That same day Cassel went 8 of 11, just to throw fuel on the fire.
The recycling of news is always an issue in training camp. It makes it sound significantly worse (or better) than it is. It is still bad, don't get me wrong, but it is hard to get an idea of the suckitude from scattered and sometimes repeating reports.Zeus wrote:
When are you going to realize that picking out the 20 bad throws this year and ignoring the 300 good ones does not make your point?

Might as well leave out this part,
Ponder had difficulty throwing accurately or sometimes at all as the defense swarmed around him.
Stephen Burton, a receiver on the bubble, was the highlight of today's practice. He and caught two deep balls, one in fairly tight coverage and the other against a blown coverage. His third catch came at the goal line when he held on despite taking a hard hit to the back as he caught the ball and stepped into the end zone.Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

KFAN reporters have stated that Ponder has not looked good for multiple days in camp.
Teams that get stuck on one quarterback, regardless of ability, often have problems. The Vikings look like the Lions under Wayne Fontes: all running back, no quarterback.
