I would hardly call it much of a read. At the very least it was the first read and where he was most likely going with the ball anyway.Quote:
Regardless though, I don't blame Ponder for the read at the very least. It was an ok read in this situation, especially with a blitzer in his face coming totally free.
And whether you want to convince yourself Simpson ran a poor route or not, it was a simple 10yd slant right in front of Ponder and even an average QB should be able to make an adjustment to his receiver and get the ball on target. Or can't Ponder hit a moving target? However, it was just 1 pass. I'm more mad about Frazier having him out there for only 2 snaps when there's so much to work on.
